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.
According to the company’s data, 24 percent of its users are “seriously interested” in group sex.
The number of people who say they are solely committed to monogamy, meanwhile, has fallen to a minority of all users, 44 percent, down from 56 percent in 2010.“It seems that now people are more open to polyamory as a concept,” said Jimena Almendares, Ok Cupid’s chief product officer.
Estimates vary, but surveys suggest that roughly 4 to 5 percent of Americans are polyamorous.
Forty-two percent would consider dating someone already involved in an open or polyamorous relationship.
Both numbers represent increases of 8 percentage points from five years ago.
So we thought it’d be cool to compile a Lesbian Dating 101 for you, comprised of all the fantastic how-to guides we’ve published over the last many moons.
We’ve also published a lot of relationship advice on how to be gay and a lot of topical personal essays and reports from the field — about lesbian tinder, being bi on OK Cupid, dating while sober, dating on the autism spectrum, what you learn from moving in with your girlfriend, among so many others— but this post is all about the how-tos.
Online-dating behemoth Ok Cupid is adding a feature tailor-made for polyamorous people.
Play dating games for girls, simulation dating and related date games where you play as a girl and go out on dates with guys. Also practice date pick-up lines and conversation, the essential components of a successful date.
Little gifts, compliments, smiling and laughing can also make any date go the right way but finding a soulmate and true love is far more challenging and is not a skill that can be learned or taught!
With the new feature, both users must opt into being linked to one another.
We’ve been at this business of art for nearly six years, which means we’ve said a thing or two about a thing or two: like how to be a queer woman who meets, desires and romances women or otherwise-identified humans out there.
