OkCupid

OkCupid offers a curious and fun mix of singles looking for all sorts of partnerships, and for whatever reason, it has attracted a significant number of polyamorous singles and couples looking for other folks to share their love with. Perhaps it's the flexibility in their gender and relationship statuses—for instance, you can list yourself as 'attached' as well as 'looking' at the same time. Or, maybe it's the open feel of the site that welcomes folks of all loving beliefs to its folds.

The folks who run FetLife, as well as many of its members, may cringe at joining the ranks of the dating sites listed here, as the alternative lifestyle social networking site makes a point of staying away from typical 'dating' searches and features found at the other websites on this list. Still, there is a significantly higher-than-average number of poly folk on FetLife, with a staggering number of local groups catering to those seeking multi-partnered relationships.  More »

Local Poly Groups

Okay, so we've deviated a bit here, offering up local resources instead of a specific dating site, per say. The thing is, networking is key in this kind of search, and often times you'll find meeting folks at real-world events the best way to communicate and connect with like-minded individuals. With that in mind, try searching Meetup.com, FetLife (see above), Facebook, Polyamory.org and LovingMore for resource, groups and connections.

The PolyMatchMaker layout is clean and fresh, and the options to self-designate are as vast as your ability to create them. Signing up, creating a profile and checking out who else is on the site costs nothing, however, if you'd like to contact others or reply to anything other than the first message a paying member sends you, you'll need to fork out the monthly fee to make contact.

Plenty of Fish

While it's true that this app isn't just for polyamorous couples, like the aforementioned OkCupid, its user base tends to lean toward open-minded folks who think outside the box of conventional relationships. So if you're having trouble finding a poly partner elsewhere, it's definitely worth it to give POF a try.
