I have a friend.
We’ll call him ‘Sam.’
Sam wants me to set him up with all the single women I know.
The thing is, Sam is poly.
At least Sam claims he’s poly.
[I personally think he’s flexible, for the right woman.]
All the women I know are monogamous.
Definitely NOT poly.
Anyway, Sam is upset that I offered to set up my friend Rob with two of my single girlfriends.
Beyond the fact that Sam is 10+ years older than Rob and simply less appropriate for the 30 – 40 year old women I know, Sam is POLY.
He likes to point out that I don’t believe he’s poly.
I like to point out that it doesn’t matter what I BELIEVE, it matters what HE BELIEVES.
So no, I’m not going to set up a monogamous woman with a poly man.
And, just so you know, I think it’s a wee bit deceptive that Sam’s online dating profiles don’t specify that he’s poly.
I COULD BE COMPLETELY WRONG ABOUT THIS, but I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that his lack of success in the dating pool could have something to do with the fact that he’s fishing in the wrong fucking pool with the wrong fucking bait.
