I have to say the search function is sub-par. The choices on age range to search for are few and oddly spaced--with a top age of 47! If the rest of the features are as poor, I don't imagine many people will hang around much.
I would have to agree with the poly-friendly bit, it does seem to be more about singles and couples but not specific to poly.

I am new to polyamory and would like to know where are the best places to meet like minded people? I am not to thrilled with dating websites because you can wait forever before getting a response. I should note that I joined a meetup group but they like to party in Long Island and I don't want to limit myself to just monthly meetings.

I'm looking into starting up a dating site, but it will have a different orientation from the standard poly sites. It will be based on the philosophy of the Dispersed Polyamorous Group concept, which I described in another thread. After talking to the people here, I have found that this philosophy is different from poly as currently practiced. So it may be slow going trying to get it started. But if I find some free PHP software for dating, at least it won't cost me anything.

So we still haven't found a "poly dating website"? Maybe I'll have to team up with a friend.

No, we (my wife and I) don't. It is more for individuals who are poly, but not for COUPLES who are poly. At least thats the way I intrepreted it.

It is also TOO all inclusive. If you're poly, great...If your just curious, great....If you're not poly, but looking for a date, great. Too all inclusive. There are other issues I have with it, but those are enough for me to keep looking around.

My wife and I are the type that when we can't find what we want, we'll create it.

So by this you mean, it's more for individuals seeking other relationships, rather than couple seeking to add a third and create a triad?

Is the problem with this, that they're all "lumped together" with no way to sort out those people

The problem with creating something too specific is that you're already marketing to a tiny subset of the population which is already aware of other options. Without a huge budget for marketing, you're "just another poly dating site" bound to get lost in the noise.

There seem to be a lot of couples looking for singles, but I don't think there are very many singles looking for couples. You'll end up being like all the millions of men on regular dating sites competing for the same tiny pool of women.

So now that I've actually checked out that site, I don't know what you're talking about... you can easily make a profile as a couple. And there are "looking for" options where people can put that they're looking for a couple, so couldn't you search for people who are looking for a couple?
