Default How do you ask people out when your married and new to poly?

Hi, I'm married with three kids. My wife and I have just started being poly. She's doing great at it. Going on dates, and has a boyfriend. I on the other hand am really struggling with my crushes. I'm nervous to ask new people to hang out and simultaneously explain my whole situation. I worry about being rejected and also don't know the easiest way to soften the conversation other than, "hey we don't know each other very well, want to get to know each other, oh and I'm poly and married, but no pressure if you don't want to hang out!" It feels really stressful and that it can make new relationships awkward if they don't want to go on a date. does this make sense?
