Sometimes singles aren’t looking to get out of the dating game — sometimes they want a fling dating app to help them play the field.

In Pauly D’s intro on MTV’s hit show “Jersey Shore,” he says, “I’m not trying to fall in love on the Jersey Shore. I’m just trying to hook up.” If you replace “on the Jersey Shore” with “through online dating,” that quote can apply to a lot of today’s dating population.

Let’s be real — dating sites and apps aren’t just about finding love. They’re also for finding no-strings-attached romance and sex, which is why we’ve compiled a list of the 9 Best Fling Dating Apps. With these options, you can quickly and easily get the love affair you’ve always wanted.

Screenshot of the Down homepage

Down uses mutual interest to match frisky singles.

First, you sign up through Facebook to prove you are who you say you are (your friends won’t know, though!). Next, browse through singles and decide if you want to “Get Down” or “Get Date.” Finally, you’ll be matched if the other person feels the same way. Your profile only exists while you’re online, and the conversation will disappear into the ether once you leave, so don’t be coy — arrange a hookup immediately.

The Fling You Desire is Just a Download Away!

Just like the Jersey Shore was the go-to place for Pauly D to hook up, fling dating apps and sites are the go-to venues for millions of horny singles around the world. You can join a free dating site or app anytime to spice things up and meet sexy people without a lot of hassle.

Online dating is rapidly becoming one of the most popular and stimulating ways to start a romance, so don’t miss out! Think about your wants and needs, pick your favorite apps on this list, and then go for it. Your libido will thank you!
