Online dating: how to make sure they're okay with poly

@Rendren, I add in something about consensual or ethical non-monogamy in your first sentence. After all, cheating is a form of non-monogamy. Even so I suggest explicitly noting that your partner is also poly and/or knows and supports you seeking other partners. You don’t need to go on about this but that eases my mind when reading a profile.

Maybe think about a different word than ‘affectionate’ in the first sentence. This is based only on my experience but I associate ‘affectionate’ with men in relationships that lack sex, touch or intimacy in general. They often describe themselves as affectionate, as seeking affection. I have a lot of sympathy for people in that situation but it’s an incredibly common scenario for cheating. But again that’s just my impression.

Otherwise looks good!
