Polymatchmaker?
 
Hey, has anyone ever used this site? What's it like? Is it lame?

It would be nice to meet some real live people that are polyamorous. I mean, this forum is awesome but meeting live people would be awesomer (is that a word? No? But I was an English teacher so I can say it IS a word and you just failed my class, Mr. Smith. Get out!);)

I have not had great luck in meeting people on Polymatchmaker. I'm opalescent there too. That said, I don't have photos on my profile and so I think that limits interest. Also, the number of people on the site at any one time is pretty small. Still the search options are pretty cool. I've also enjoyed the forums but they are not very active. Still, can't hurt!

I have a severe case of OkCupid-is-the-One-True-Wayism. And yeah, that's a word, too!

It's lame. Hate the interface, I find it is.. Ummm old. Okc has far more variety of poly people... Depending on your area.

Besides on okc you might find a curious mono. Where on polymatchmaker your subsection of people is badly limited.

Cool. Thanks for the answers. We will check out OKC today. And good job on the spontaneous word creation BlackUnicorn! LOL:D

But, wait, how do you get around the issue of the OKC profile being set up for just a man or woman? I mean, we're a couple looking to connect with people, not just me or her...:confused:

You could setup two profiles explaining yourself. Or one profile and select the preferred gender etc.

You are kinda stuck in that case I have to admit. Gotta get creative. When I was on there I listed my wife and she listed me I then listed my gf when it got really serious and she listed me. People who are poly friendly will follow the relationship trail ;)

Just put it right there in the introduction that you are married to 'PLove' and link it with her profile.

Hades36 04-17-2011 07:56 PM

Ok, I am on there as Hades37...PLove is going to be Persephone47...for anyone who wants to be in our Favorites list!
