:) For the comfort of our members, please do NOT private message anyone in this group that you have not met in person and gained permission from, other than the group leaders, Angela and Jason (any other leaders on the leadership team should also not be contacted).To keep this a welcoming space, soliciting for hook-ups, get togethers or anything else via private message are not allowed unless you have already met in person and have that person's permission to contact them.We have one regular meeting a month, and then others happen as time, interest and available host allow.We set up this group to make it easier for people who are polyamorous, or interested in polyamory, to meet with each other at events.
Currently traveling the USA in a geeked out vintage bus conversion. Online-dating behemoth Ok Cupid is adding a feature tailor-made for polyamorous people.The new setting, which became available for some beta users in December, allows users who are listed as “seeing someone,” “married,” or “in an open relationship” on the platform to link their profiles and search for other people to join their relationship. A screenshot of the new feature obtained by The move comes in response to a rapid uptick in the number of Ok Cupid users interested in non-monogamous relationships.Hanson identifies as polyamorous, a brand of consensual non-monogamy — or ethical cheating — in which partners are in more than one committed relationship at once with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved.It is difficult to determine the actual number of people in such relationships because of a lack of research, but they are becoming more visible because of the Internet and social media, according to psychologist Meg Manthos, whose clientele is about 30 percent poly groups.“Poly relationships have been around for as long as we’ve had documentation,” Manthos said.Random messages, especially ones soliciting for hook-ups, are grounds for removal from the group. If a connection happens in person at one of our events, great! You are always welcome to email the group leaders, Angela and Jason, with questions about the group at any time. This page is used both as a pointer page to our Meet Up and also a place where poly-relevant news, blog posts, comics, etc. Lastly, we do take donations toward Meet Up fees, but this is completely voluntary.
