Question Once Bitten, Twice Shy?

Greetings all,

Just wanted some thoughts on being in a poly relationship and interested in forming new relationships. I was in a poly double V until recently, so I am currently interested in creating some new friendships with a "let's see what happens" attitude.

I like to be very open and upfront about my relationship status with new friends, but outside of the swinging community (which seems to be more accepting of alternative relationship models than the regular crowd), the description of my relationship with husband dearest seems to result in a person responding with a "Phwoaaar, well then you aren't such a good girl after - all you must be ready for a random shag!" It's not the first time this has happend as in the past we got some similar reactions from friends until they really understood that we aren't just in it for a quick and easy rush of endorphins.

Needless to say, I am not frequenting those places these days, since I dislike either the reaction or having to hide part of who I am. Has anyone else hit this problem?
