Default Don't know much about picking up but geez...

Ok, so in preperation for me going down under, I joined a yahoo group for Poly Aussies.
Got to talking to a couple people and after a few emails back and forth with this one guy who happened to live in Sydney and telling me which sites to see, (also knowing the kind of relationship I'm involved in) he asked me if when I was there I would want to get together and sleep with him.

I was rather shocked to say the least. He said he liked making love to like minded people. Now, I know I'm still new, and my mono-poly relationship doesn't have me searching for people, but is this normal? After just a few emails exchanged, no pictures or anything, this guy wanted to jump in bed with me just because I happened to be in his city. ANd because I happen to be poly, he thought I'd accept? Wtf?

Needless to say I declined and haven't heard from him since, but that really put me off.

Sounds like just another schmuck with a loose screw to me.

Pun intended regards the "loose screw".

Hey, that's almost as good as Mono's "monopoly rules".

Yup, sounds like he was just looking for a quickie with no meaning. I wonder if his definition of poly is different than yours.

CLEARLY it is. Even if I were not in a mono-poly relationship. Isnt' the whole point LOVING others, emotional connections? Not just a quicky with a stranger.

Sounds like some sad sack who can't build relationships and thinks that poly = swinger. I say we have to expect a proportion of any poly group would be of that sort.
