Some of today's matchmaking services and/or dating websites go far above and beyond offering a simple photograph. Many today employ video chat or Facetiming. While the process to engage in video chats may vary slightly from site to site, they all operate on a pretty basic level.

Here, we will go through some of the steps involved – again, at a basic level – and then give some pointers for those who aren't particularly familiar with this incredible option.

Video Chatting – How to Start

So, you've decided to video chat. Good for you. As a very basic example, here's how to enable the video chat on a dating site:

• A VIP membership may be required, so check

• Go to the person's profile with whom you wish to chat

• At the top of the screen, locate the video icon

• Tap the icon

• To unlock the face-to-face future, slide the toggle

• After the feature has been enabled by both parties, the app will likely display a confirmation message 

• Confirm

• At the top of the chat screen, tap the video call button to begin your call

Remember: These steps can vary depending on the app, site, service, etc. Make sure that the device you're using has a camera and the lens is not blocked.

Before You "Chat"

Remember, when you’re video chatting, you're doing more than just talking. You're going to be able to actually see each other, so you should look the part. Here are some things to keep in mind:

• Choose the perfect location. Consider lighting, your background, possible distractions, etc.

• Carefully go over the person's profile before you start chatting with them. You might even make some notes to refer to during your chat.

• Look your best. You don't have to go over the top, by any means, but comb your hair, brush your teeth, put on a little makeup (if that's something you do), wear a nice shirt or blouse, etc.

• Have something handy to drink in case you get dry during the conversation. 

• Look in the mirror to figure out what your best angle is and then face the camera/computer/phone in that manner.

Extra Pointers

During your video chat, keep the following in mind:

• Pay attention to your body language (take a hint from the body language of your match)

• Stay positive

• Don't eat or chew gum

• Wear headphones

• Don't fidget

• Don't stare at yourself

• Awkward silences aren't always a bad thing – don't get nervous

• Try to end on a high note

Whether you are already a polygamist, or you're considering polygamy as a way of life, sooner or later, you'll likely have to "come out" to friends and family. Of course, LGBT+ community members have been dealing with this for decades. But polygamy is in the spotlight more now than ever with television shows like Sister Wives and others. Unfortunately, those don't always give an accurate picture of what the polygamist’s lifestyle is all about. So, when you do "come out", you're probably going to end up dealing with all of the misconceptions people have gleaned from those programs. That can take an already dicey situation and make it even worse.

Let's say, for the sake of argument, that you're already a polygamist and you've decided to let your family and friends in on your little secret. What's the best way to go about it? Here's some advice (which may not be perfect for everyone but will hopefully help some people).

When Will You Drop the Bomb?

"The Bomb" is, of course, the news that you are a polygamist. You'll want to decide on a time you feel is best for sharing your news. The responses can, in some cases, be influenced by how long you've waited to fill people in. The sooner the better, in most cases. People may feel like they've been deceived if you've been doing this for years and have finally decided to be "truthful".

If you're not quite yet in a serious relationship, you may want to hold off just a little while until you're actually in one. It's a personal choice.

Questions and More Questions

Once the cat is out of the bag, some people will ask question after question. That's a good thing, however. The more curious they are, the better you can explain your situation. If they’re curious, they're less likely to condemn you, and more likely to accept or at least respect your decision.

Share Your Feelings Honestly

The reasons why you decided on polygamy may be personal but sharing them honestly with others may help them understand your choice. Even if they don't agree with it, they may be able to respect it, depending on your delivery, their frame of mind, and more. The important thing is to be as upfront and honest as you possibly can. Be equally prepared for honesty from them, however.

Prepare Yourself For Varied Reactions

Not everyone will react the same to your news. Some people will be angry, some people will be shocked, others will be happy, and some may feel disappointed. Prepare yourself ahead of time for any reaction you could possibly imagine.

You may want to begin your sharing sessions with the people you feel will be the most supportive. The same goes for introducing your partners to others, should you choose to do so.

Partner Involvement

Again, this is going to be a personal choice. Not everyone will think it's a good idea. You may choose to involve your partner(s) in the discussions you have with family and friends. Of course, they (your partners) have to be on board with this as well.

Be Understanding and Take It Slowly

This is big news to most people and they're going to react in various manners. Try to see it from their standpoint, even if they're having a hard time seeing things from yours. People don't always do well with new things or change.

Sharing the news about your lifestyle is good, but don't feel like you have to reveal every single personal aspect – at least not at first (if ever). There's lots of time to delve into the aspects of a polygamous lifestyle, so don't rush it.


Remember, you are not the only polygamist to ever come out to family and friends. You may take the time to speak to others in your community who have already "come out", before sharing your big news with others.

In this day and age of "everything Internet", if it isn't happening online, it's not happening. Oddly enough, that includes dating. Actually, it's not that surprising if you think about it. It's just easier to use apps and websites to find a potential partner. Before you even meet someone, you can learn a lot about them. No more beating around the bush – just put it out there online.

If you're considering looking into dating and/or matchmaking services and apps, here are some of the things you can expect.

Many Are Theme Based

What is meant by a "theme"? For example, if you're 50 years of age and up – and prefer dating people your age – you could explore matchmaking through a dating site called "Our Time". Others may be centered around a gay theme, polygamy/polyamory, or another lifestyle/theme.

Everybody Uses Them

Okay, not everybody. But more people today are using matchmaking services and dating apps than ever before. It's no wonder. It can be difficult, at best, to meet people you have a lot in common with when relying on old-school dating methods. Services such as these can streamline the process significantly.

They Adapt to You

Just like, based on your purchases, Amazon suggests products – dating services look at who you've messaged and people who are similar to you before they make suggestions (depending on the website). People with similar beliefs, interests, etc. are more likely to be introduced to each other on these types of sites.

The Questionnaires Can Be Lengthy

Though the questionnaires for these services are lengthy, they serve an important purpose. They're trying to find out as much as they can about you so a better match can be made. It makes sense. As long as you allow yourself the time to go through the questionnaire honestly and thoughtfully, you should be able to achieve good results eventually.

Long-Term Relationships Are Possible!

Yes… it is possible to find the love of your life after being initially introduced through a dating app or matchmaking service. Granted, you may have to sift through some rocks before you find that gem – but he or she is out there.

You May Not Immediately Find Your Perfect Match

Most things worthwhile take time. Don't get discouraged. If you don't find that perfect match right off the bat, remember, a special someone could be waiting right around the corner. Take your time. Enjoy the experience.

You Have To Be Careful of Scams

Scams and frauds are everywhere you look today. The Internet makes it easier for them, in many cases. Always research an app or a site before you get involved. While the website itself may be legit, some of the "players" may not. Most dating and matchmaking services try to weed out the fakers, but some sneak by on occasion. If you find one, please report them to the site.

Some of Them Charge For Their Services

A paid membership is the best way to access all of the features provided by some dating apps. There's likely a free trial period, but then a charge may be applied. Then again, you may be able to view profiles and see matches, but for messaging, you'll have to pay for a membership.

Note: One of the biggest things to remember is that the online dating process is what you put into it.

Whether dating in a heterosexual manner, dating as a member of the LGBT community, involved in polyamory or polygamy dating, or something else, dating can be somewhat stressful. Granted, the process has been exceptionally streamlined thanks to today's dating apps, matchmaking services, etc. But the fact remains, meeting someone new, in the interest of pursuing a relationship, can be a stressful experience.

Let's look at some general dating tips and then narrow it down just a bit further by offering some advice for successful polygamy dating. We are not talking about advice like "wear a nice outfit", "don't use too much makeup", "make sure you brush your teeth", etc. This goes a bit deeper.

General Dating Advice

For successful dating and "getting to know you" sessions, here are some very general tips. This doesn't apply to any particular lifestyle – it's just the basics:

• What do you want? It's an important question to ask yourself before you start dating.

• In return, what are you willing to give? Don't oversell or undersell yourself – be honest.

• What are your expectations from this meet-up? Looking for marriage? Kids? Serious relationship? Just sex? Again, be honest and upfront.

• What does the person you're going on a date with want? If you haven't already established this, get it out of the way soon.

• Know your options. Is the person you're going to date interested in the same relationship type or lifestyle you're hoping for? Might they be willing to experiment?

You should have an idea, before you get too far into the date, as to whether or not this is going to work out. To develop a deeper relationship, of course, it will take more than one meeting. Don't waste each other's time, however, if too many things don’t match-up between the two of you.

Polygamy Dating

Before dating as a polygamist – either for the male or the female – a very important decision needs to be made. Is this a lifestyle in which you feel you can't participate? For successful dating as a polygamist, we offer the following advice:

• Intuition goes a long way. Listen to yours. Say something if things don't feel right.

• Feelings of reservation can be expected, so appreciate them if they surface – either on the part of the person you're dating or on your part. Enter into this gradually and patiently.

• Be trustworthy and supportive.

• There are other partners that will be involved here, but it's important to try to steer clear of drama whenever possible. If tension surfaces, you'll need to get to the bottom of its cause before you can figure out what to do about it.

• Do a self-check as to your extreme neediness, possible feelings of resentment, inclination toward jealousy, etc. Check the other person as well. There is no room in a polygamous relationship for those kinds of feelings.

• You may have to ask yourself if you are willing to share this new person with others. Are they willing to share you?

• Have fun but be safe!

Most important: Remember that communication and honesty go a long way.

Countless individuals are turning to today's online matchmaking services or a dating app to find a relationship. It's not surprising when you consider how much more streamlined the entire dating process can be with the assistance of dating app memberships. While many are initially free to explore, or offer limited free memberships, most provide an extended usage opportunity through a VIP membership.

While the VIP membership does charge a fee, more times than not, it offers exceptional access to the many exclusive features of a dating app or website. Here, we are going to explore some of the benefits you may be introduced to through the purchase of a VIP membership.

Please keep in mind that what you'll get from a VIP membership will differ according to the app or site itself. There is no "one-size-fits-all" membership when it comes to the vast array of matchmaking apps and/or dating sites today.

In general, here's what you might expect from a dating app or matchmaking service VIP membership.

Free Trial

Once you purchase a VIP membership, you will probably have a specific amount of time to cancel the membership free of charge. Make the most of it. Test it out.

Limitless Chat

While time limitations and certain restrictions may apply to someone using a dating site for free, they are usually done away with once a VIP membership is established. Talk to as many people as you want, view as many photos as you'd like, as often as you want.

Find out Who's Interested

With VIP status, anytime you want, you can look at the profiles of people who seem to be interested in you in unlimited quantities. If you're super popular, that could come in handy!

Look at one profile, five, 10, 20… As many as you want. You have unlimited likes.

Get a Boost

Extra visibility, attention, and priority will likely be received by your profile as a VIP member. Compared to regular members, you might be shown twice as often. Keep in mind: The more you're viewed, the more likes you'll get. The more likes you get, the greater the number of matches possible.

Do Overs

If you look at a file, then go past it, you may not be able to get back to it and reconsider without a VIP membership. Whether you passed by as an error or are now rethinking the individual, this could be an important advantage.

Better Search Filters

Don't waste your time looking at people who don't fit your precise criteria. Narrow down the field easily and quickly with advanced search filters (an aspect of VIP membership). Some of the characteristics you may be able to shop by include:

• Verified photo

• Height

• Body type

• Ethnicity

• Interests

• Intentions and more

Explore Additional Locations

When you filled out your form, you probably included your home location. But what if you’re traveling and want to use the site to meet others in the immediate area? With a VIP membership, you may be able to do just that.

Pick and Choose

With a VIP membership, you can pick and choose those whom you don't want to see your profile and those you do. If you're pretty sure you won't be compatible with someone in the first place, why have them looking at your file?

Note: Though, once again, this may vary from site to site and depend largely on who you're talking to, some services boast a 10% better chance of meeting that special someone if you participate in a VIP membership.

People who have more than one spouse may be referred to as polygamists. In the U.S., more than one marriage is not officially considered “legal” and/or binding. In some other parts of the world, however, it is quite common. Through various means – legal or not – many people practice polygamy.

Whereas polygamy relationships function by a certain set of rules, and all parties involved agree to the lifestyle, this is not to say that problems don't arise. Anytime you have two or more people in a relationship, issues are bound to come up. It's human nature.

Here we will examine ways in which to deal with some of the problems that may arise within polygamy relationships. If you're interested in a polygamous way of life, these are just a handful of things you may want to watch out and prepare for. This way, you may be able to avoid them altogether, or at least deal with them successfully.

Problems or Something Else

"Perception" is everything. If you perceive something as a problem, it is more likely to be one. The human mind has the power to transform something that isn't actually a problem yet into a real setback. Some individuals tend to make big issues out of small issues. Surely, you've heard of someone making a “mountain out of a mole hill.” That's what's being referred to here.

How you and the others in your relationship view a small issue will have everything to do with whether or not it becomes a big problem. If you can head trouble off before it escalates, you stand a better chance of resolving your disputes.

Openness and honesty are of the utmost importance in any relationship – but particularly where polygamy is concerned. Everyone must feel comfortable discussing their concerns with the other parties. The other parties, in return, have to remain open and be as empathetic and understanding as possible. Hopefully, together, everyone can work toward a common goal – a successful polygamous relationship.

Typical Problems

Not surprisingly, some of the most typical problems encountered in polygamous relationships revolve around a handful of emotions:

• Jealousy and competitiveness

• Excessive neediness of one or more parties

• Financial problems (lots of people living on not enough income)

• Scheduling enough time with all parties concerned

Suffering in Relationships

In any relationship – and in life in general – pain is more or less inevitable. What's optional, however, is suffering needlessly from that pain. If you simply cannot overcome the feelings discussed here, you may be participating in the wrong lifestyle or you may be with the wrong person(s). Carefully evaluate your situation to discover your best course of action.

Ready to Pursue Polygamy Relationships? Sister Wives Dating and Matchmaking Can Help

If you have dedicated yourself to a polygamous lifestyle, and you'd like to meet other polygamists and possibly future spouses, we can help. We are Sister Wives Dating and Matchmaking.

Online dating has become a popular way for people to meet potential partners, with millions of people using the internet to find love and companionship. While online dating can be a great way to connect with potential partners, it's important to remember that it's not without its risks. In order to stay safe while online dating, it's important to be aware of the potential dangers and to take steps to protect yourself. Here are some tips to help you stay safe while looking for love online:

1. Choose a reputable dating site. It's important to choose a dating site that has a good reputation and that takes steps to protect its users. Look for sites that use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption to protect your personal information and that have a clear privacy policy outlining how your information will be used.

2. Protect your personal information. Be cautious about sharing personal information, such as your full name, home address, or phone number. Consider creating a separate email address specifically for online dating and use a pseudonym or screen name instead of your real name. Be careful about the information you share on your dating profile and use a recent and accurate picture of yourself.

3. Research your matches. Use Google to do a background check on your matches. Look for red flags, such as a lack of information or suspicious behavior. If you have any doubts, trust your instincts and take the time to get to know someone before meeting in person.

4. Stay sober. It's important to be in control of your faculties when meeting someone for the first time. Avoid drinking too much or using drugs, as they can impair your judgment. It's also a good idea to stay sober when you're communicating with potential matches online.

5. Meet in a public place. When meeting someone for the first time, choose a public place like a coffee shop or restaurant. Avoid meeting at someone's home or inviting them to yours.

6. Tell someone where you're going. Let a friend or family member know where you're going and who you're meeting. Consider sharing details about your date, such as their name and phone number.

7. Trust your instincts. If something feels off about a person or the situation, trust your instincts and get out of there. It's better to be safe than sorry.

8. Report any suspicious behavior. If you encounter someone who is behaving in a suspicious or inappropriate manner, report it to the dating site and to the authorities if necessary.

9. Use a ride-sharing service. If you're meeting someone for the first time and plan on going out, consider using a ride-sharing service instead of driving yourself. This will give you an easy way to leave if things don't go as planned.

10. Stay vigilant. It's important to stay vigilant and aware of your surroundings when online dating. If something doesn't feel right, trust your instincts and take steps to protect yourself.

Overall, online dating can be a great way to connect with potential partners, but it's important to remember to be cautious and stay safe. By following these tips, you can help protect yourself and have a positive online dating experience. Don't be afraid to take things slow and to get to know someone before meeting them in person. Trust your instincts and don't be afraid to speak up if something doesn't feel right. And remember, it's always better to be safe than sorry.

If you follow these guidelines, you'll be well on your way to finding love and companionship online. Just remember to be cautious and to take the necessary precautions to protect yourself. Online dating can be a wonderful way to connect with other people, but it's important to stay safe and to be aware of the potential risks. With a little bit of common sense and some careful planning, you can enjoy all the benefits of online dating while staying safe and secure.

There are few things that can't be done or found online today – including online dating. The truth of the matter is, it's a lot easier to use an app or website to find a potential date than it is to go out in the real world and attempt the same thing. Even before you meet someone, thanks to an online dating service, you can learn a lot about them.

Do you like hiking? Like to get away for the weekends? Have a few cocktails? Do you detest smoking? Love pets? The questions, interests, etc. go on and on. You can find someone who seems to have numerous things in common with you from the comfort and convenience of your own home before even meeting face-to-face.

If you're somewhat cautious when it comes to experiencing new things, however, you may want to know ahead of time what to expect from an online dating service. Once you know what's in store, you may feel better about stepping out of your comfort zone.

You're Not Alone

Numerous people use dating sites today. Let's face it, if no one was using them, they wouldn't still be going strong and multiplying like crazy. One dating site in particular currently has more than 21 million users. What's more, it's available worldwide.

Themes and Websites

Know ahead of time what you're looking for. As an example, many people over 50 – who want to meet other people over 50 – use a monogamous dating site referred to as OurTime. Like the old song says, "Different strokes for different folks." You can find specific websites that cater to people who have particular tastes, interests, lifestyles, and/or desires.


To participate in a dating site, you will put together a profile and select a picture of yourself. In addition to this, you will be expected to fill out a questionnaire. Some of these can be lengthy, so be prepared. It's all in an effort to get to know you better so you can be more appropriately matched up with someone who will be compatible. Extremely personal or private information should never be part of these questionnaires. In fact, don't give anyone you’re considering dating any private or personal information.

Love Takes Time

Love, or simply the right person to date, may not come along immediately. A perfect match can be hard to find so hang in there and be patient.


Depending on the dating sites, some charge for their services. Others are free to men or women specifically. You may get a free trial and then decide from there whether or not you want to pay for the service. Check out, ahead of time, what the financial implications will be before using a dating site.

Be sure to watch out for scams, just like you would with anything else that involves online activity.

If you think that “a dating site is a dating site,” think again. If you enjoy a polygamous lifestyle and think there are no dating services out there for you, we have good news.

Trying to Find a Safe, Trustworthy Polygamist Dating Site?

If you’re looking for a polygamist dating site, but you're worried about it being trustworthy, safe, etc., let Sister Wives Dating and Matchmaking Service help you find your mate. We’ll introduce you to someone with whom you may find true love. Yes, it does still exist!

Polyamory is a relationship style that involves having multiple romantic or emotional relationships simultaneously, with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved. It's a way of loving and building relationships that can be just as fulfilling, healthy, and long-lasting as monogamy, and it offers a number of benefits for those who choose to practice it.

One of the primary benefits of polyamory is that it allows individuals to have more than one romantic or emotional connection at a time. This can be especially appealing for those who are naturally affectionate, empathetic, and open to loving multiple people at once. It can also provide an opportunity for people to explore different types of relationships and discover what works best for them.

Another benefit of polyamory is that it can be more inclusive and accepting of different relationship styles and preferences. It allows people to be honest about their desires and needs, and to create relationships that meet those needs in an authentic and fulfilling way. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who may not feel comfortable or fulfilled in a monogamous relationship, as it allows them to have multiple loving connections.

In addition to these benefits, polyamory can also foster stronger and more supportive relationships. It requires open communication, trust, and mutual support, as everyone involved is committed to supporting each other's growth and happiness. This can lead to a more harmonious and fulfilling relationship dynamic overall.

It's important to note that polyamory is not for everyone, and it's not a solution for relationship problems. Like any relationship style, it requires a strong foundation of trust, communication, and respect in order to be successful. However, for those who are open to it, polyamory can be a positive and rewarding way of loving and building relationships.

It's worth noting that polyamory is not the same as polygamy, which refers to the practice of having multiple spouses. Polyamory involves multiple romantic or emotional relationships, rather than multiple marriages. It's also important to distinguish polyamory from infidelity, as it involves the knowledge and consent of all parties involved.

Overall, polyamory is a relationship style that allows individuals to have multiple romantic or emotional connections simultaneously, with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved. It can be a positive and rewarding way of loving and building relationships, and it offers a number of benefits for those who choose to practice it.

Depending on the religion you follow – if, indeed, you follow one at all – there are many ways of looking at a polygamy relationship. For Judaism and Christianity, the sacred Scriptures – the Bible – are a lifestyle basis. Through time, loose interpretations of the Bible have become popular among certain divisions of Christianity, but the Bible is still the basis for these publications.

If you are curious about polygamy or are considering a polygamous relationship/lifestyle, you may be wondering what the Bible has to say about it. Polygamy is only referenced in passing in the New Testament. But in the Old Testament, it is referenced directly a total of 33 times. Reasons for this differ, depending on whom you're talking to. Regardless, you have to rely pretty much on the Old Testament if you're going to try to understand the position the Bible takes on polygamy.

The Old Testament

The mention of polygamy occurs in Genesis, Judges, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, and Daniel.

The taking of a second wife is referred to regarding numerous individuals, all the way up to Abijah having 14 wives and Rehoboam having 18 wives. Mention is even made in 1 Kings of someone having 700 wives!

So, clearly, in the Old Testament at least, polygamy wasn't a problem. Quite the contrary, in fact.

New Testament Views

The mention of polygamy in the New Testament differs from the Old Testament, not surprisingly. Thanks to a number of interpretations, however, an exact guideline is hard to pin down. In Titus and 1 Timothy, the "husband of one wife" is referred to for church leaders. Here's where the dual interpretations come in. They are as follows:

• Interpretation one – A husband having more than one wife is prohibited only for church leaders.

• Interpretation two – A husband having more than one wife is prohibited in general.

Whether you believe in and follow the Bible or not, the choice of polygamy is a personal one. The Bible, as with most anything else, is something that is interpreted in more ways than one. Regardless, polygamy is a lifestyle and a decision that is arrived upon by consenting adults.
