what does open minded mean to youPage 2 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
First, my profile doesnt say open minded...but do consider myself to be.

**** Quoted from IdoDares1 (msg #65)****
{"It means you are open to new experiences, it doesn't mean you are accepting of everything. You are willing to listen to arguments, but you don't have to accept every argument. You are open to trying something new, does not mean you are going to like it or continue to do it. You don't judge without first hearing all sides, you still will judge.

Being open minded doesn't mean you accept everything, it just means that you are willing to give a fair hearing to everything before making up your mind. You are also open to new arguments afterward. It doesn't mean that you have no preferences."}

I am extremely open-minded. I am taking this straight from my profile as this is what being open minded means to me:


It truly does not bother me what you do, how you do it, with whom you do it or what entity you pray to while doing it as long as you are not putting another in harm's way.


I am always open to new ideas that can help me gain new perspectives in which to look at things. It is interesting to see how some people consider open-minded to be a bad thing, a sign of weakness or lacking conviction. I hold my beliefs very highly but I will not push them on others nor do I hold them so high as to have them cast in stone. The only constant in the world is change and maybe the speed of light.

what open minded means to me is that the person is willing to trying new things and is not set in there ways where things can only be done this way and no way else.

[when a male has "looking for someone who is open minded" on his profile, it means:

he is looking for a chick that will be like all the women he has been watching in the porns. be into anal, deep throating, and a good facial now and again, and would be open to having another women join them.


when a female has "looking for someone who is open minded" on her profile, it means:

she is looking for a guy that will be willing to do anything and everything possible to get her off. and wont give up till the task is completed. Meaning, the guy better get used to seeing all of her sex toys and must love sucking clit.]


I'm adding "looking for someone who is open minded" to my profile right now.......

I get the feeling that open minded means kinky.....not vanilla.......so if you can hang from a chandelier, suspended in mid air, swinging back and forth, while doing acrobats, blind folded, in leather gear and thigh high boots......without being judged....then, darn it you are open minded....

I would judge that probably with a score around 8 all depends on how they pull off the landing.

It means to be open to anything that one is comfortable doing. To not judge but have the curiosity to learn of new things of the spirit, body, and mind.

It's being discerning.

In kink-land there's a shorthand: YKINMK. (Your kink is not my kink.)

The full version is YKINMKBYKIOK. (Your kink is not my kink, but your kink is OK.)

However, there are closed-minded people in kink-land, too (surprise!)

Maybe I'm wrong, but I've always believed open minded meaning open to anything including all sex.

It means a general openness to anyone and anything, be it cultural, societal, sexual, physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectually.. the very essence is simple, come as you are. I like people who are different and aren't afraid to be unique and true to themselves.

because you decided to post this question in the sex forums I assume you are wanting to know what open minded means in regard to sex.

There are many people who are not open minded when it comes to sex. They see it as something to do to procreate or to keep their partners happy, they do not like oral sex and do as little as they need to, to get by.

When one says they are open minded sexually this means that they enjoy sex and all its vast possibilities.

One needs to be careful though because ones definition of open can mean adding other partners such as swinging as well as sado/mas activities and can even go into activities that are not only immoral by societies standards but also illegal.

When saying you are open minded, I believe you should be clear with your potential mate about what that means...to you.

It means you are not quick to judge before getting all the information and are open to ideas that may seem different or even contrary to your current set of ideas.

Just don't confuse one being "open minded" with someone "accepting" A person might be open minded about the differences in someones personal beliefs, sexual kinks, desires, or even religion. But that does not mean he or she will accept differences in you and them. It could mean they are open minded enough to respect those differences, but it does not mean they want them in their life. So proceed with caution.
Like many, I consider myself very open minded and even very accepting of other's lifestyles. But there is a line or limit as to what I'd accept in the way of a partner.

it means many things. intellectual open mindedness, political and religious open mindedness. Of course, sexual open mindedness. Just meaning in my use of the word someone who isn't judgmental or has societal acceptance issues. Sin is fun.

That means I am open to ideas, to the point that they are sometimes Out there.

Open minded to me is an essential element to embracing the philosophy that diversity is an essential aspect of human success, which means however comfortable I may feel in my own perspectives, I know that if everyone were just like me a lot of important things would happen, but at least as many important things would NOT.

On a dating level, while being open to sexual experimentation is certainly one aspect, it's also appealing to be with someone who's open minded enough to accept my quirks and open minded enough about others to make us unlikely to clash in our views of the world.

Someone who can cast a broad scope on lifes many possibilities. A person who makes an effort to understand things that to some may be difficult to understand. Anyone who will atleast consider trying something new.

Thing of it is, it doesn't matter what it means to me, to you, or to any one else EXCEPT the person who says it.
"Open minded" is an entirely RELATIVE term. As with any word or phrase, you can find various "authoritative" sources of definition. None of them will matter either.

I have known many people who used that phrase, and every one of them meant something slightly different.
- some meant: "I'm kinky. If you don't like me, it's because you aren't Open Minded."
-others: "Open minded" means "weak minded." People who say they are Open Minded are simply indecisive."
-and: "I hope you are open minded. I intend to live sloppily around you, use your money up, see other people on the side without telling you, do what I want, fail to live up to any promises I make, and still expect you to live up to yours."
-or: "I have been associated with a very controlling person whose strong religious beliefs made me feel crushed. I don't want to get into that trap again."
-then: "If you have Closed your mind to the Will of God, I don't want to be associated with you."
-again: "I feel nervous that you might disapprove of parts of my past. I don't want to have to apologize for what is already done and gone."
- from the 1960's and early70's: "You haven't made up your mind ahead of time about me, or other things in life."
-from the 80's and 90's: "I hope you are Open Minded about being thoroughly selfish, and raping and pillaging everything we can get our hands on."

And so forth. In other words, it has so MANY meanings, that by itself, it is meaningless.

being an open minded person in my opinion means allowing yourself to accept other peoples differences without passing judgement on them.it also means being willing to try new things with an open mind. this may include personal, social and sexual activities.
