polygamist dating site-27

Just looking through the profiles, I noticed one thing: a lot of people are still skittish about saying exactly what type of relationship they're looking for.

And if they do specifically name something, it aligns more closely toor some level of non-monogamy than polygamy, which involves multiple spouses.

Despite the baggage of the site’s name, plenty of user profiles I looked through were simply looking for an amorphously defined third partner.

Despite being a longtime feature in Muslim and Mormon culture (though often shunned by the mainstream adherents to these religions) polygamy’s never featured prominently in the biggest dating sites.

If web entrepreneur Azad Chaiwala’s dating site looks mundane, it’s because that’s the point.

He’s trying to take the idea of polygamy, which has deep roots in Muslim culture, and take it mainstream., Chaiwala, who also started up a Muslim-oriented dating site called Second Wife.com, launched after realizing there was a more general interest in polygamy outside the confines of Muslim communities in the UK, where there are 20,000 polygamous marriages.The site, which launched in 2016, closely mirrors the layout of other dating sites.OKCupid and Plenty of Fish, for instance, have options for mentioning you’re in a marriage and looking for something more, but that’s not a selling point for either site.This article has been updated based on information provided after the original publication.Chaiwala said in an email that filtered settings may affect the total number of users you see, and that the site's membership recently broke 5,000 users.
