I hear ya about living in the belt buckle! I live about an hour NE of Dallas. Rather small town (pop. ~9000), my husband owns the second oldest business in the county, I play piano at my church (besides my family there are two people there that know I'm bi, only sister and BIL know about poly).

Both Bear and I have profiles on OKC. I unclicked the button that allows straight people to see me so that I could message Bear. Gah. I am now OVERRUN with guys telling me how great my boobs are.

Sorry, I digress.

Do you a profile, don't let straight people see you, and just start sending thoughtful, conversation provoking messages to women who catch your interest. I am having nice conversations with women from all over the US and so is Bear. Neither of us are looking for any other relationships right now, so we haven't pursued any of our chatting buddies in that manner, but that is a good way to start.

IRL no one just walks up and says, "Hey, baby, you're hot, wanna f***?" Well, unless they want to get slapped, right? So, just strike up conversations, treat people nicely, and if you feel a spark, pursue it : )

Coffee houses are also nice for meeting people : ) And bookstores. I've struck up conversations with people in lots of bookstores!

OKC is where we met Lovely.

We live in VA and have had some but not much luck.more than most I daresay but that little bit of luck was hard to come by. Poly-dating is hard. You just have to go for it. The problem is that the men and women you'd be courting might just have sex on their minds or worse decide they only want one half of the couple. Become friends with them first then when a bond has been established. Ask they're feeling on the subject.
