Because of the clandestine nature of AshleyMadison, there are many people who are looking for just local hookups or friends with benefits relationships. Many people ask if you have to be in a relationship to use the AshleyMadison app. No you do not. Anyone can turn to the app to find a hookup, you just have to agree to be discreet.

#2 AdultFriendFinder


AdultFriendFinder is one of the most prominent dating site when it comes to find hookups and friends with benefits dating. It was created by one of the maker of the first social media websites. On AdultFriendFinder you find more than just a casual dating site, you get access to a whole adult community. You can browse members like on a traditional dating site but you can also go to the dating forums or enter the live chat to have some fun.

AdultFriendFinder has over 92 million members around the world. No matter where you are, there is sure to be someone to hookup with.

#3 Match.com


Match.com is one of the biggest dating apps in the world, with services available in 24 different countries. While the original intention of the Match.com app was to create a platform for people to find quality dates, many people use it as a place to find a hookup.

When using Match.com to find a friend with benefits you will have to do a bit more navigating to find a match. Once you find a match on the app, though, they tend to be a quality match that you can enjoy thoroughly.

#4 Tinder


Tinder is one of the most popular apps for any kind of dating, whether it be a hookup or a serious relationship. The simplified nature of a photo-based profile attracts a lot of users. A small written section is available on your profile but it often isn't used for anything too serious. The fact that you can't talk to other users until you both like each other is also attractive for most people.

With Tinder you can swipe yes or no on people and wait till you find a match. Once you match with someone you already know they are interested in you and as such you should have a boost in confidence.

#5 Pure


Pure is around to change how people find hookups. On Pure you are in for fun, not serious dating. The app encourages users to ask for what they want and not try and beat around the bush. They think that there are already plenty of traditional dating apps out there and it is time for something new.

The name Pure wasn't chosen because the users are pure. It was chosen because the website and app supports the idea that sex is pure.

#6 CoffeeMeetsBagel


CoffeeMeetsBagel is a dating app that is designed to help you find matches that are chosen specifically for you. If you turn to the app in order to find a FWB, you will discover a near perfect partner. By hand selecting matches for you, the app gives you someone that you can talk to and get to know right away. No need to break the ice. Your personalized matches are delivered every day at noon.

You will be happy to find that there is a good mix of people on the CoffeeMeetsBagel app. Some of them are specifically looking for serious relationships while others are looking for something less formal.

#7 Badoo


Badoo is a social networking app that is designed to help discover new friends. With over 428 million registered users on the app, there are plenty of people to meet no matter where you are.

Instead of using a dating app to find a friend with benefits, why not try a better platform?  Badoo isn't designed to be a hookup app so it is important that you get to know people a bit before just propositioning them. This will also help you to ensure that you find a match that is right for you.

#8 Happn


Happn is a dating app that is designed to connect you with the people that you pass on a street.  Have you ever seen someone on the street and thought to yourself you would like to hookup with them? Well that is one of the things that Happn is hoping to make a reality. When you pass someone else who has the app they show up in your matches as does the number of times that you have crossed paths with them.

This is a good app to supplement another hookup app. Happn is great for developing long term FWB relationships but it takes a bit as you first have to cross paths with people.

#9 Hinge


Hinge is a dating app similar to Tinder with swiping profiles. But where as Tinder has limited profiles, Hinge allows users to post more information on their profiles. The idea behind Hinge is that you will find a connection and no longer need an app. Their slogan is "designed to be deleted" after all. Hinge wants users to get off their phones, take a break from their busy lifestyles and connect in person. Perfect for finding a FWB.

On their website they claim to be the fastest growing dating app in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia but don't let that dissuade you. Plenty of people use it for hookups.

#10 Down Dating

Down Dating

Down is the app for those who are looking to get down with locals. You don't have to worry about any of the concerns of traditional dating apps. It is a simple app made for something that everyone wants. The sleek design makes the app very easy to use and makes the focus on the users not the app.

The developer markets their app as a wingman for finding you a hookup nearby. Everything on Down is anonymous. People never see your matches and the app makes sure your profile doesn't show up in search results on the internet.
