I’ve recently had a quick glance at OK Cupid and found it to be near enough a complete waste of time even tho it claims to be non-monogamy friendly.
It’s matches seem to ignore my preferences and tends to bombard me with diabolical mis-matches and ads attempting to convert me to there paid service.
Pleanty Of Fish is even worse, the search keeps resetting to defaults and matching me with people up to 15 years my senior and way outside me selected age range. Also the number of automated bot accounts is truly shocking.
Lastly Tinder, what can I say…
Basically no one ever chats after a match, which seems to defeat the whole exercise.
Polyamorous people tend to think about relationships a lot. I’m no exception, hence the blog. What I want to investigate in this post is the concept of the transactional and altruistic relationship models.
So let’s first define and agree what we mean by the term “transactional relationship” and why it’s an important stage in any relationship.
