4. Hinge – Best Fling App
Hinge is “designed to be deleted,” meaning it’s supposedly so adept at finding your perfect match, you won’t be single for long. When it comes to casual dating, however, you might be able to find better success for a no strings attached affair by first searching for a compatible friend.
Hinge offers a questionnaire with fun questions as well as some heavy political/religious viewpoints to filter out bad matches. You not only match with others, but you can select what part of the profile you liked, whether a photo or an answer to a question.
An even ratio of men to women, as well as options like bisexual dating
Leave feedback on your dates to the Hinge team and get better results next time
Date from home option lets you quickly do phone or video chat
Demographics cater to 24-32 age group and long-term relationships
5. Reddit R4R – Completely Free No Sign Up Hookup Site
With over 342,000 members, Reddit R4R is one of the most active free dating sites online. It’s a Reddit community, meaning members can drop by anonymously and leave private messages, or post their own personal ad.
While the Reddit R4R doesn’t have any sub-subgroups, you can search the entire Reddit site for your local city to see if any singles are in town looking for a fling. Just beware, some subreddits that include your local city or town may be named something like “DirtyR4R” or “Random Acts of Sex.”
Very easy and practically anonymous registration
No need to upload any photos
Directly message users, rather than waiting to be matched
May be difficult to find someone local if you live in a small town or deep rural territory
6. Alt.com – BDSM Hookup Site
It can be awkward to explain your sexual kinks to a stranger – and definitely for a first-time chat! That’s why there’s an advantage to using a site like Alt.com, which lets you search for and match users who share your alternative desires. Alt offers members into swinging, bondage, fetishes, domination, submission, and everything else in-between.
Members can get matched with someone who shares their kinks. Paying members can also sneak a peek at who viewed their page, and take part in the friend network and connect with people willing to talk about their favorite taboo subject.
BDSM community for easy search/filtering/matches
24/7 phone support for members
Lots of X-rated niche content, in addition to dating nearby members
As with most sex sites, many fake profiles
Long questionnaires to read, yet a black difficult-to-read interface
7. Craigslist Activities/Missed Encounters – Best Personals and Casual Encounters
Craigslist still lives up to its reputation as a wild and mostly unfiltered dating site, although posts now require a cell phone number – just in case of anything too creepy. While the “Casual Encounters” page was famously shut down several years ago, you can still find dating partners on the “Missed Connections” and “Activity Partners” community sections.
Mostly men use Craigslist. No wonder then you’re more likely to find gay men, prostitutes, married people, or swinging couples than a perfect lover.
Post ads for casual or lifetime dating without registration
Pretty easy for a woman to find many dates
Posts do require a traceable cell number to be approved
Individual posts can be flagged for almost any reason
Mostly unfiltered posts, including lots of spammers
