Movies and TV shows often depict singles as desperately wanting to find a relationship and/or get married. Singles on the opposite side of the spectrum are usually left out. According to Psychology Today, 45.2% of Americans 18 and older are unmarried. This includes those who have never married, are divorced, or are widowed.

In addition, 53% to 58% of never-married adults say they want to get married, while 12% to 14% say they don’t. The rest are people who aren’t sure. Today, we wanted to give some overdue attention to the people who aren’t interested whatsoever in a committed relationship. Where should they go to find like-minded people? Hookup sites and apps are a great option, especially the 13 below, because they’re easy, convenient, and affordable (or absolutely free).

1

BeNaughty

BEST
OF

BeNaughty is our first choice for people looking for a hookup app because, of course, it’s free, but it’s also well-established, popular, and secure. It was founded in 2000, it has more than 13 million monthly visitors, and it uses SSL to protect your information. No matter what kind of encounter you’re looking for (e.g., one-night stands, group sex, or swinging), BeNaughty can help you find it.

Adult Friend Finder, which was launched by Various Inc. in 1996, has made several upgrades over the years to improve the user experience, including adding more communication and safety features. You can get to know frisky singles and couples via private messaging, instant messaging, group forums, and videos. Adult Friend Finder will also show you who’s online at the same time, so you can arrange a meetup in no time.

When you’re looking for a “friend” to take part in some adult fun with you, we recommend checking out FriendFinder-X. The site has a large and diverse user base (1.2 million monthly visitors from all over the world) and a free membership that never expires. This free membership also allows you to view and like profiles, receive matches, and flirt in a variety of ways.

MenNation

BEST
OF

MenNation is dedicated to gay, bisexual, and sexually curious men. To join the community of millions, all you have to do is provide your age, relationship status (singles and couples are both welcome), location, email address, screen name, and password. Then you can get into the driver’s seat and search on your own, sit back and wait for MenNation to send you match suggestions every day, or do both.

Women who are attracted to women flock to LesbianPersonals for many reasons. They don’t have to pay anything to try the site, they have millions of turned-on singles and couples to choose from, and they could even get laid tonight if they want to. LesbianPersonals also likes to think of itself as a gathering place for lesbian, bisexual, queer, and questioning women to support each other.

6

Grindr

BEST
OF

Grindr is a leading gay hookup app, and we expect it’ll be that way for a long time to come. More than 27 million men from more than 196 countries have signed up for the app, and more than 3.6 million men use it every day. Grinder was founded by Joel Simkhai, a gay man who understands the dating struggles this community may face. This is also why Grindr regularly launches campaigns to combat discrimination against LGBTQ people.

Tinder

BEST
OF

Tinder was the first app ever to offer swiping, and it’s taken the dating industry by storm. As you probably know, you swipe right on someone if you like them and left if you don’t, and you can only chat if you both swipe right on each other. Most of Tinder’s matching algorithm is based on your location, gender, and age preferences, and it’s really fun to use when you’re traveling. And you can keep your wallet right where it is because Tinder doesn’t charge.

8

DOWN

BEST
OF

DOWN helps you get down with people in your area, including friends of friends on Facebook. Don’t worry, though. The app will never post on your behalf, and you’ll never show up in Facebook searches as a DOWN user. Once you’re presented with a potential match, you’ll select “Date” or “Down.” If you both feel the same way, start messaging and setting up a casual encounter. DOWN is available for free for both iOS and Android users.

BEST
OF

At Feeld, which is based in London and was founded in 2014, it’s all about dating open-minded and REAL singles and couples — the app promises you won’t find any bots or scammers. Feel free to be completely honest about your desires because no one will judge you on Feeld. If you have any problems, the team can be reached 24/7 via email and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Pure

BEST
OF

“The hookup app for awesome people,” Pure can be downloaded for free on Google Play and in the App Store. Pure says the whole point of using the app is to connect with horny singles and couples, have an amazing sexual experience, and then never see each other again — just like a hookup is supposed to be. One happy user named Ryan Kleinsorge said, “Couldn’t be more impressed. The app is actually simple and matched me with other people.”

OF

And it’s serious about being 100% free for registering, browsing, exchanging pictures, seeing who’s viewed your profile, and sending and receiving messages.

iHookup

BEST
OF

“Casual dating based on physical attraction” is iHookup’s motto, and this free app was founded by women who understand that both genders, not just men, are interested in no-strings-attached relationships. You can browse by appearance, obviously, but also city, gender, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity, and many other identifiers. iHookup says it’s “all about rubbing your single life in the face of traditional dating sites.”

Xmatch

BEST
OF

Xmatch is a totally upfront sex site/app that’s made up of millions of totally upfront people. It’ll only take you a minute or two to create a profile, and it’ll only take you a minute or two to find a compatible match. Users can post explicit profiles and photos, so you know what you’re getting into before meeting. Most importantly, though, Xmatch won’t cost you a penny.
