I was redpepper, sorry. I figured you didn't go by redpepper on OKC. I'd love to know--I've been enjoying finding people and adding dimensions. I've had lovely chats this morning with 3 different people from this thread.

As you may know, I don't feel like I have much of a community here in the Albany area (though maybe I just haven't found it), so finding community, even if online (I've had a lot of benefit from online communities over the years), is important to me.

I hope that answers your question!

Tell me about it! My male partner is trying to find a playmate and it's really tough. He messages people just to say hi, to try and get a conversation going, and 90% of the time gets no reply. Despite women's profiles saying "Hey, send me a message and we can chat", they don't seem to want to talk to him. He's open, friendly and AWESOME but isn't really being given a chance.

inlovewith2, I agree with you that women get a lot of attention on OKC relative to what men get.

I discovered something interesting with my ex-boyfriend that I think is probably pretty close to the truth. He might send out 100 exploratory emails and get 3 replies back. However, all his replies would be women who were genuinely interested in a relationship, love, emotional commitment, not just sex. I might get 100 emails (and I didn't have to work for them, the way he did), but it might be that the entire 100 of mine just wanted a casual sex thing.

A lot of men envy women the "easy" time we have online, but as a poly person, I think I'd rather approach this lifestyle as a man.

After perusing everyone's profiles, I guess it is only fair that I toss mine in. I'm WalkerBoh23. The pictures are a smidge out of date(except the X-Day pics) but other than that, it's all there.

So Karma has this desire for me to find someone else. I have been toying with the OKC idea for a while but not sure. I think it may help with some of the metamour issues, some of the too much time on my hands issues. But I dunno. I haven't been on a date that didn't include my husband in 8yrs. I'm not against dating someone, I just haven't actively looked. I've never tried online dating, not sure what to expect.

It's also a good place to meet people just for conversation... Dates seem to anticipate and have expectations... just meeting for conversation is less stressful.

(and I've had some great conversations....)

I signed up a few weeks ago. Same name as here - Andy4700- but really haven't added much info..... Looks great if you're single and wanna date/meet folks... but have any of you other guys had luck meeting women that are interested in secondary relationships?

I'm having doubts.... I need a tale of encouragement.
