Sure, if ALL parties involved are aware of and accepting of it. Otherwise it's just cheating.

I think I saw on the show "Guy Code" or was it "Girl Code", the girls said that "Playing The Field" was ok as long as you were upfront about it. Mentioning it after having been caught was not good. I have trouble imagining the conversation when you tell the girl that you have several other active girlfriends. I guess if the girl was asking the guy out, you could get away with mentioning that, but Jeez, how do you bring that up when your the one asking the girl out? When I was in High School, "Playing The Field" was the default relationship and you had to "Go Steady" to define the relationship as exclusive. Having done that, of course, meant you had to break up before switching partners. Sometimes that happened. Sometimes not.

One is already enough of a hassle, definitely don't need more than that. For me, anyway.

No is my answer, as I see no wise decision in having multiple partners for dating or marriage. There is no true intimacy, love or perhaps devout loyalty and bond from having many people at once. People are free to do what they please, but if I was foolish to pursue a relationship I want only one man.

I think it depends on if they are in a polyamorous relationship or if they are secretly seeing others. If its secretly seeing others then no, its not ok, however if its a polyamorous relationship then people can do what they want as long as everyone is happy.

Am I even using polyamorous correctly? Or is it polygamous... i don't even know...

I guess I don't equate dating with a relationship. If I have two tickets to an event, and the person I intended to go with cancels, instead of tossing the ticket in the garbage, I might ask someone else if they are interested. Technically, that is a date. You are meeting someone at a certain place at a certain time. I think you can take many people on a date, as long as there is no relationship. Once you are in a relationship and you date other people with the intent of starting another, well that's dastardly.

I think it's fine as long as the person in question is honest with all of their dating partners and does not lead them to believe they are exclusive. Said partners can then make their own choice as to how important exclusivity is to them, and move on if it's a deal-breaker. Every relationship does not have to be a committed one and it's fine to have just-for-fun, just-for-a-while relationships- as long as everyone involved is honest and communicates about their wants and expectations.

Yes, that would be polyamory, which refers to a non-monogamous or "open" relationship where all partners are free to seek other relationships as long as all are agreed on it. Polygamy specifically refers to the culturally sanctioned practice of a man having multiple wives.
