As Tinder is the original casual dating app, you should definitively try it out

6. Happn

Happn connects you with the people you crossed paths with and seize the opportunity. If you always wished there was a way to start talking with that really cute guy/gal you see every day on the bus, or at the gym, but don’t want to invade their space then you should try Happn. Happn has set itself apart with one of the unique dating services and overall concept.

If you like a member you cross paths with, you can heart their profile. They won’t know you’ve hearted it unless they heart you too. That means there won’t be that awkward moment. It has 50M members (about 6.5M monthly active user base).

You may come across 100s people on one single train journey in a city with millions as it will match you with people in your immediate proximity, not necessarily people you saw face to face as it can’t determine that.

It makes it a bit hard to go through all potential matches you come across in a bigger city to decide whom to heart. You also have to turn the dating apps like Happn on and off so they don’t track you at all hours. Unless, of course, you want to be tracked at all hours.

7. OkCupid

OkCupid is a popular dating app that continues to adapt to the online dating culture. Over the years, it has become very friendly for the short-term dating scene and LGBTQ community – all thanks to their extensive matchmaking questionnaire. In OkCupid, you get the option “what you’re looking for” and there you can select “hookups.”

And, yes, there are plenty of people on the OkCupid that are looking for hookups. In fact, according to OkCupid’s survey, 46% of OkCupid user base says they’d consider sleeping with someone on the first date, as opposed to the 40% who say they wouldn’t (14% skipped the question).

If you want to taste some success on OkCupid, make sure you fill the questionnaire and be upfront about what you want. Here’s is our guide that explains how you can get laid using OkCupid, go read it.

8. KinkD

KinkD is a hookup app for people who are interested in bondage, kink, and fetish. On KinkD, people are only looking for no strings attached relationships (NSA) and friends with benefits (FWB).

Couples that want to do some swinging can also be found here, as can married people looking for affairs. Anything goes, so long as it’s consensual and legal. What’s great about KinkD is that it’s legit.

It’s not like other sex apps that are filled with scammers — their team actively works to prevent it from happening.

Of course, as with any sex app, you can’t be 100% assured you’ll never run into anyone with dodgy intentions, but at least they try to find the scammers in their midst. In fact, they approve all profiles manually!

KinkD goes as far as to allow you to create a secret album with intimate pictures that you can show your matches.

9. Pure

The pure is an anonymous hookup app for quick, direct, and anonymous hook ups. You aren’t even supposed to be looking for relationships on here. They also happen to take anonymity very seriously — they erase your profile within a couple of hours of you creating it. Yes, really. Why?

Since Pure is for instant hookups, you’re meant to logon, put up a pic and make your pick (sorry I appear to be stuck in a pun state of mind). Basically, you are meant to upload a picture of yourself and use the next hour to find your date. After that everything gets erased.

This means it’s easier to start the conversations with, or simply meet up and fun. Just like other sex apps, you’re better safe than sorry: it’s good to meet in public first, but the intention with Pure is that you are going home with someone.

The big perk of PURE is the anonymity feature. The messages get erased after an hour and due to anonymity, there is no connection to other social media networks. Also, it’s possible to turn off the chat destruction timer.

10. Whiplr

Whiplr is a hookup app if you’re looking for people with similar fetishes. With over 2M members, you’re bound to find someone into the same things you are! Members, or “kinksters,” can search for others based on gender, distance, fetishes, etc. so it’s easy enough to find the right person who is also DTF.

Apart from your profile pics, you can upload sexy photos of yourself and choose who sees them. You can also delete photos you’ve sent via messages, but of course, people can do screengrabs, so don’t feel too safe sending naked pics to strangers.

One great thing with Whiplr is that it offers icebreakers — lines you can use if you’re unsure of what to say to someone. We all know what it feels like coming up with the perfect conversation starter when we have a temporary brain freeze because the person we’re staring at on the screen is just too hot.

It can make the best of us tongue-tied. I write dating advice for a living and I’ve had moments when I’ve lost my marbles and forgotten every conversation starter I’ve ever come across. And let’s just say I’ve come across a few.

11. Feeld

Looking for something like a threesome? Feeld is one of the dating services for finding that. No more fumbling in the dark when trying to figure out if some of your friends might be up for it. Feeld is also an app for people who are looking for threesome — you can be straight or gay, but whatever you are, you need to be open-minded.

Feeld lets you choose whether you’re two people looking for another one to join, or if you’re single looking for two other singles, or a couple. It makes it easy to find your perfect threesome!

Sometimes, looking at the dating apps today, you wonder what they’d have thought back in the seventies, or eighties if there was “an app for that.” Not to mention what people back in the 1700s would have said:

“So, Mr. Darcy, how do you fancy a little romp with the chambermaid and Lady Austen?”

The ton would, most likely, have fainted had they known where society was heading. Back then you couldn’t even spend time alone with opposing genders, these days you can use an app to find a threesome. Feeld guarantees you interact with real humans. In other words: they’ve banned the bots. They also allow you to hide from Facebook friends.
