Frequently Asked Questions
PolyAmoryWorld grew out of an idealism and an honest desire to provide a original dating-platform on the internet for people like us who also polyamorous in life.
PolyAmoryWorld.com was founded on 2-04-2010 and for one and a half years has been freely accessible to our members. In these eighteen months, our members had a big say in the final design of the new site as it stands, however, we keep remaining in development. Now the site has become commercial, it is very important to distinguish ourselves from other dating sites that require monthly fees to be members.
Our experience is that people need time to find each other on the dating platform, therefor PolyAmoryWorld only requests a one-time subscription of its members. Our motto "You're not just Polyamorous for one month" so why pay every month! We consider it very important that all the people can find each other on a long term basis. So we are very happy to be of help to find more love in their lives!
However, we mandated that everyone is seen on the site so that an open culture is maintained. All members are therefore recognizable with a personal photo unless someone (paid option) absolutely does not want to be visible.
PAW is setting a unique tone for other datingsites to which it gives notice to any site with free or empty profiles! There are already enough of those!
PolyAmoryWorld was made with love for each other and our Poly members. We hope that with this website we give something in return so we can make the world a better place!
