OKCupid's New Feature Caters To Those Who Prefer Open Relationships

OKCupid's New Feature Caters To Those Who Prefer Open Relationships

For those who have even more love to give, OKCupid is ready to help. The dating site has recently added an option for people in open relationships who are looking for more potential mates to join them.

CNN reports about the new feature OKCupid has dubbed “Couples Linking” which allows a couple to join their profiles. Anyone who has labeled their profile as “seeing someone”, “married” or “in an open relationship” can use the feature to look for others who may want to join their existing relationship.

The move to include the polyamorous dating scene is not surprising from a site that has long held the ‘romance for all’ attitude. They are one of the only sites that allows users to list themselves as “non-monogamous” or in an “open relationship” and give 12 sexual orientations and 22 gender options to choose from.

And for singles who prefer a more traditional monogamous-minded partner, having these new labels and features can potentially weed out those who may not want a committed one-on-one relationship. For the same reason, the new features help the polyamorous find exactly what they’re looking for. Pepper Mint, a San Francisco-based advocate for non-monogamy who organizes poly-friendly events explains, “You want to meet people like you so having the site identify you as non-monogamous is a very big deal.” Mint adds, “It's good news but it's not just OkCupid being generous. It's well-known in the poly community that if you want to date online you go to OkCupid. What we're really seeing is non-monogamous purchasing power.”

What do you think of OKCupid adding this feature to their site?

Do you use any online dating apps or sites? Which is your favorite and why?

    OkCupid adding this site could help other people in the long run. I know that I wouldn't want to be with someone who wants an open relationship, and if both people don't feel the same way then it's just a waste of both people's time. So if it is an option to put their relationship as looking for an open relationship then the people who don't want that can just pass it up. I am not a member of a dating site nor have I been. But I know a couple friends who have tried some of them.

    Dating sites are really creating a stir in the social Life. Looking out for relationship either serious or causal been easy with okcupid . I had been running pharmacy leads in name of Generic Viagra http://www.genericapharmacy.net/ but truly great social site though.

    he move to incorporate the polyamorous dating scene is not amazing from a site that has long held the 'sentiment for all' state of mind. They are one of the main destinations that permits clients to show themselves as "non-monogamous" or in an "open relationship" and give 12 sexual introductions and 22 sex choices to look over.

    Tadacip http://www.pharmaglobalrx.com/tadacip.html Tadacip is a medicinal product made for a pharmacological treatment of erectile dysfunction. By using this website you can purchase any of predefined packages of Tadacip that contain physical units of different quantities. Price of each package is calculated in the way where the more units is ordered the less you pay per unit. However package price is obviously higher because of bigger quantity of units in it.

    So, I had been using OkCupid for quite a while. I would say a year or two on and off. I had answered hundreds and hundreds of questions that the site has you do "for the best possible match". The majority of those answers were in great depth and were very well thought out. I believed that answering such questions in great detail would allow people to understand me better.
