(CNN)Are you in an open relationship and looking for more love? Online dating site OkCupid wants to make the search easier for you.

"Couples Linking" is a new feature that lets couples join their profiles. The feature is open to people who identify as "seeing someone," "married" or "in an open relationship" and are looking for others to join their relationship. The feature will also help singles looking to join an open relationship by identifying non-monogamous couples in searches.

The addition was welcomed by many who identify as non-monogamous or polyamorous, terms broadly used to describe people openly involved in relationships with more than one person. These communities already consider OkCupid the most welcoming of the major dating sites for already having settings to accommodate them.
