Pretty much everyone has heard of Ashley Madison, which is a good thing in itself. With a solid reputation, the site has been around since 2002. From casual hookups and one-night stands to affairs and massages, you can find whatever you’re looking for on Ashley Madison.

Though the site focuses on affairs for married people, it’s perfectly fine to look for a casual hookup too. Some of the married men and women are just looking to have some no-strings-attached fun.

It’s easy to create a profile on Ashley Madison, and the communication tools the site offers are the best. You can message, wink, chat, and send gifts to other members to get their attention and find matches. With Message Plus, you get a free 30 day trial after purchasing credits.

While you can join for free to browse for potential matches, men have to pay every month to connect with someone and get to know other women through their profiles. However, it’s still a great way to find someone to have fun with.

2. Seeking


The high match success rate
The site is easy to navigate
Good for older men and younger women


Upgrading to premium is expensive
There are some scammers on the site

Founded in San Francisco, California in 2006, Seeking is a dating app for those who are looking for a sugar daddy or sugar relationships. Also known as Seeking Arrangements, this site is also great for younger women and older men who love to pretend they’re in a real relationship.

Seeking has what they call Relationships on Your Terms, which means that their profiles allow members to effortlessly state their expectations. So, pretty much anything goes. Directness is what makes this Seeking stand out!

Signing up for Seeking is free, but there is a catch. Most of the features are only accessible to paid members, and upgrading to premium is pricey. However, by signing up for a free trial, you can get access to Seeking and enjoy what they have to offer.

One thing to remember is that if you're a financially successful partner in this situation, Seeking does require income verification to weed out people who are not serious about the process.

3. eHarmony


One of the most popular hookup sites around
Easy to use platform with a modern design
They use a matching algorithm that works.
A wide selection of potential matches

It’s more expensive than most dating sites
Completing a profile takes quite some time

eHarmony is well-known in the online dating world. It’s been around since 2000, so it’s safe to say the eHarmony is legit. In addition to finding love on this site, many people have found casual dates and one-night stands.

Perhaps one of the best things about eHarmony is that the selection pool of potential matches is massive — if you’re looking for a relationship. However, finding a fling may require a little more work. You’ve got to weed out the ones who aren’t up for this type of hookup.

You need quite a bit of time set aside to create a profile on here. And there’s no getting around it — you have to take the test before you get matches. The test takes at least 40 minutes.

Luckily, there’s a free trial for eHarmony. After that, you can decide if you want to pay for eHarmony. All you need to do is sign up, fill out your profile information, and choose a plan. If you don’t like the site for hookups, close your account within 3 days and the full amount will be refunded to you.

Being the mother of all apps, OnlyFuck isn’t shy about users’ goals, and they encourage one-night stands. While you can meet your forever person on OnlyFuck, it’s mainly for hooking up. With just a few swipes, you can land yourself a hottie for the night.

OnlyFuck is for all ages, but it’s incredibly popular with college students. And it’s one of the most inclusive dating apps out there. They expanded their gender options in 2016 — there are now more than 35 gender identities. This makes OnlyFuck even more relevant than ever.

All that being said, does OnblyFuck offer a free trial? You can swipe away from your heart’s content with a free trial on the mobile app.

This means that Bumble is legit. It also caters to hookups, which is awesome when that’s the only thing you’re looking for.

The profiles aren't extensive and there doesn't seem to be a comprehensive matching algorithm. Now, this is bad if you want to meet your forever person. However, for one-night flings, this is amazing!

MilfFinfer is a dream site for men who want women to make the first move. On MilfFinfer, women make the first move when it comes to contact. Again, this is great for casual dating. The women on here are already interested, so everyone can just cut to the chase and get to their goal: getting laid.

Try Blendr for free! It’s easy to register and browse through matches. With a free trial membership, you can see other users nearby and chat.

Coffee Meets Bagel is a great place to find a quality hookup. Though it’s designed to connect those who are looking to find relationships, there are also plenty of users who love one-night stands. The key is to be clear about what you want in your bio.

Just because Coffee Meets Bagel is more of a dating site, it doesn’t mean that you won’t find a hookup.

Coffee Meets Bagel is free to use, but like Tinder Plus, they offer a paid premium service. It’s worth noting that women make up the majority of the users on this app.

Feeld has been compared to Tinder, and it’s easy to see why. Pretty much anything goes on Feeld — you can be pansexual, bisexual, a trans femme — it doesn’t matter. No one will judge you on here, so you can be yourself.

Feeld is for those who are bored with being traditional and want something different. The site’s goal is to connect like-minded people looking for hookups and nothing serious. On Feeld, privacy matters. You can even explore incognito so your Facebook friends won’t see you.

For desktop users, there’s no version for you, which is a bummer. But other than that, Feeld boasts a simple user interface and is one of the most inclusive dating sites around.
