A Message From Our Founder

From Brandon Wade, Creator of OpenMinded.com

Society has come to a point where marriage has taken a downward turn because it no longer satisfies the needs of the modern woman or man. In search of happiness, people are relying less on stereotypical gender roles and traditional relationship paradigms. While monogamy is certainly not dead, a shift in societal ideals has taken place, as more and more couples are choosing to buck traditions in favor of unconventional relationship configurations.

For many, ‘monogamy’ is almost synonymous with ‘monotony’, which can lead lesser men (and women) to cheat. But that is not the only way to get what you want.  Consider these:

  • Ethical Cheating
  • Open Relationships
  • Monogamish Relationships
  • Non-monogamy can be ethical

These “configurations” may include open and polyamorous relationships. They may be one new partner joining an established couple, or two couples spending intimate time together. More importantly, they may just be open-minded people meeting and dating others with their same attitudes.

Swingers and Polyamorous are negative words that have been associated with this lifestyle, yet they remain niche within the open relationship universe. Websites that cater to such lifestyles today are overwhelmingly adult in nature.

The new faces of the “open relationship” lifestyle aren’t porn hungry freaks or long-haired hippies, but rather successful, sophisticated, young professionals who do not view monogamy as an ideal. These individuals openly acknowledge that long-standing relationship may not meet each partner’s emotional or sexual needs all the time, and there is a need for a better alternative.

We want to capitalize on this trend of where romantic relationships are headed in the future, and put a positive spin on this movement by using the term for its participants – the “Open Minded.” OpenMinded is a positive term that will help us change the way we perceive the open relationship lifestyle. It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to OpenMinded.com, the first dating site designed specifically for the many configurations of modern relationships.

No matter what configuration you’re interested in, I believe OpenMinded.com can offer what you’re looking for. However, the best part of OpenMinded is that if you don’t find the configuration you want, you can make your preferences a part of the site so that like-minded people can find you!

If you’re looking for others who approach modern configurations of dating with an open mind like yours, try OpenMinded.com. You may be surprised at how many people want to explore the same dating configurations you do!

All the best,
Brandon Wade
