Straight male married to a female.

I think labels are good and bad. They help someone else size up a situation quickly, but they can lead to a sterotype of that label.

but yeah... that didnt fit, sorry :P
No offense taken, Raze. But you can see how the wrong tone to the exact same words would become tiresome. Just taking the time to make a point.

The more you know... *shooting star*

I know I just over reacted. Sorry. Just dealing with my own stuff. Your post was very resonable. <sigh>

In the user profiles, there is no field specifically for "orientation" or "sexual preference". HOWEVER, where it says "Interests", you can write whatever you want. I put "Women & Men" in mine. You can also write anything you want in Biography, or ANY of the other fields.

If you really want it out there, you can put in in your signature. I was thinking about doing that ...

Very male, married to very girly wife, who could become poly, but I am unsure. If she took a poly girl as her special S/O, I would be happy with that. But I am not yet ready for her to take a poly man as S/O.

Am I normal?

i love threesome sex though.

I don't know if you are "normal", but you do sound "usual".

if she were to say she was ok with you having a male S/O, but not ready for you to have a female S/O, would that be ok with you?

Female, married to a man, DavidWebb on the forum, poly, dating 2 men and very curious to date a woman, just not sure how to find someone who would be willing to very slowly cultivate a relationship with me, and I'm in the "habit" of being attracted to men.

Don't go looking for a "relationship" with a woman then. Develop friendships with women while keeping an open mind to let things progress in whichever direction they are naturally tending towards.
