7 Best Polyamorous Dating Sites (That Are Free to Try)

Merriam-Webster defines polyamory as, “the state or practice of having more than one open romantic relationship at a time.” According to The Advocate, 4% to 5% of Americans participate in some form of consensual non-monogamy.

According to survey results published by The Advocate, 49.5% of polyamorous people identify as female, 35.4% as male, and 15.1% either decline to choose or identify as another gender (e.g., genderqueer). Despite a 2015 Gallup poll that shows a growing tolerance for relationships and situations outside the bounds of traditional monogamous marriage, 25.8% of polyamorous people responding to a survey by a polyamory advocacy organization said they’ve experienced discrimination because of their lifestyle.

We believe people have the right to love who they want in any way they want as long as it’s consensual, it’s not hurting anyone, and it’s not breaking a law. If you and your partner are looking to share your love with another, check out the top seven free polyamorous dating sites below.

Match

Match isn’t a polyamory-specific dating site, but it’s one of the best options because of its size (40 million+ users), history (founded in 1995), and success rate (more dates, relationships, and marriages than any other dating site). Not to mention you won’t have to pay to sign up, create a profile, upload photos, browse, receive matches, flirt in a variety of ways, and attend events, among other things.

Polyamory Date describes itself as “a community for real poly adventures,” whether you’re interested in hookups, dates, or relationships.

As They Say, The More The Merrier!

The Advocate reports that Gallup polls taken from 2001 to 2015 reveal a 15% increase among those who view sex between an unmarried man and unmarried woman as acceptable, a 16% increase in the acceptability of having a baby out of wedlock, and a 16% increase in the acceptability of polygamy. Our experts believe all of this contributes to a growing acceptance of polyamory. Our experts also believe the seven sites on this list are playing a major role. Good luck!
