With over 25 million monthly users that's more than eharmony as well as live video options, chat rooms, groups for ultra specific kinks, and more, you can probably assume how wild this site can get. But there's such a large and diverse group of potential matches, you're very likely to find someone who's on the same page as you. The part that you wouldn't expect is the fact that they do offer tons of compatibility questions and matchmaking services, because they're that intent on finding you a good lay.
You'll find people who work the regular , people who work the night shift, and people in other time zones, so it's nearly impossible to log on and not have people to talk to. AdultFriendFinder is like the booty call that's always awake when you text them. You can read our full review on AdultFriendFinder here and sign up here. Best for finding a regular friend with benefits. Tinder The place where you'll find everyone you know, a ton of people you don't know, and where you can go to find a date in under 10 minutes. Tinder , otherwise known as the app everyone and their mother downloads after a breakup, sees 1.
Tinder may not want to advertise as such, but we all know what it's mostly used for. It's fast, easy, and if there's one app that even the shyest, most skeptical people will be on, it's Tinder. Sure, you may get carpal tunnel from swiping so much, but I guess that also means that it's nearly impossible to not find someone who's DTF.
Though it's pretty much free for general use, Tinder does offer two upgrades: Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold. These include extras like the opportunity to undo a left swipe bless , send "Super Likes" to people you're really into, and in the case of Tinder Gold, see which users have liked your profile. Best for guaranteeing no strings attached. When we think PURE , we think pure ly physical. If you're tired of getting signals crossed or dread being asked "What are we? App rules urge you to "pretend like you're strangers afterwards," making no-strings-attached the only name of the game here.
This minimalistic and hella millennial app is fast, no nonsense, and the blueprint of what a hookup app should be. They quite literally call refer to themselves as "The Hookup App," so. Small talk and all that mushy shit? Ain't nobody got time for that. No, seriously — your uploaded selfies, personal info, and conversations with others self destruct every 60 minutes, promoting spur-of-the-moment and borderline anonymous hookups.
App Review: High There
The app will ask for your phone number, but that's just to make sure you're a real person. As the hipster comics on their website state, "Don't talk about your problems. Problems are for therapists. Pure is for fun. There's a seriously fun "less talking, more touching" vibe that ramps up the fast-paced atmosphere, taking things to a whole new level. PURE gives all the feels of a hookup-only site without the obnoxious naked parts everywhere, AKA you won't have to be scared for someone to glance at your phone or computer screen as you would with AdultFriendFinder.
There's no fancy algorithm, no crappy bio jokes, and best of all: It will ask for your credit card info, but we promise it's all free. Best for a personal hookup experience. Clover Clover wants to do more than give you an anonymous hot single to bang — and why not actually be friends with your friend with benefits? OK, but what about the other type of hookup?
You know, the one where you know more about your booty call than just their name? Clover is a fun, millennial-driven app that pairs physical attraction with shared interests. It's totally still fast-paced enough to give you a spontaneous hookup. Not all hookup apps have to be anonymous or borderline porn.
Even if it's just a one-night or not-earlier-than-midnight-thing, I know a ton of people who would prefer to ensure that their booty call isn't a raging psychopath. Yes, you can actually be friends with your friends with benefits hookup partner.
Aside from the usual physical appearance, location, and sexual preference questions, Clover also gives you the option of answering 20 profile questions in a similar manner to OkCupid. There is an option to check that you're only looking to hook up, so you can at least ensure that you won't be giving the wrong idea. While you can swipe to match, you can also request to go on a date and even suggest a place and time , or create mixer events for multiple users to meet up. AskMen's Clover reviewer saw a mixer titled "Lol why am I using this app," and we love that.
There is a free version of Clover, but the premium memberships allows for unlimited chatting, plus you'll be able to unlock all photo, video, and badge features. Paying for an app is annoying, but Clover's impressive 4. Sometimes it's nice to not be strangers with the person you're having sex with. A lot of hookups usually end in being kicked out of bed at 3 a. It's nice to know you can hold some sort of conversation and use them for their company as well as their private parts. You can easily get laid and find a a no-strings-attached situation, just with a friendlier dynamic.
Does that take the passion and mystery and spontaneity of a random hookup away? Plus, if you're also open to a relationship if you meet the right person, Clover is a great happy medium. Best for queer women. HER Ideal for queer women who are tired of heteronormative dating sites and finding the same three lesbians on Tinder. Apps like Tinder and Bumble are technically for all sexual orientations — so why are they still giving you male matches when you've specified you only want women?
Damn, that's quite a life story. I am surprised after the second wife you didn't decide to stay single: What about sites for us lonely farang women looking for the one Thai man who isn't afraid of foreign women??? I often wondered that but perhaps the demand is so small I guess it hasn't warranted a site thus far.
Afraid of foreign women? I've not heard that before. Most single Thai men would love a foreign wife, as long as she has money! I've been reading over your blog and yours is about the only one I've come across that seems genuine and written with real insight and intelligence. I'm going to check out a couple of these Thai dating sites for my upcoming holiday as I don't really like the bar scene. If you don't mind I'll drop you an email to ask a couple of more personal questions rather than posting them here.
Sure, I'll do my best to answer them.
All the best with your trip. Thanks for your reply by email. I did reply back but not sure you got it so posting here. The best Thai dating site in my opinion is defo Thaicupid. I've met a girl on there and we've been in touch now for 3 weeks. Hoping to visit in the summer. An update on this: I reported it to both customer service at TLL and security.
Neither replied, and the 'girl' is still a member, presumably catching other guys out. Worse still I've just been through exactly the same procedure with another 'girl'. To avoid this happening to you: It's a jungle out there chaps. Basically Truly Thai are posting profiles on other sites in a bid to lure guys over to their site and pay a subscription. Heard back from TC and TF, both of whom are aware of this and are looking into what they can do to stop it. One simple rule is not to be lured off site!
Hi, I have just visited ThaiCupid which expects you to scan your id as proof.
The problem with this is I do not want to give my real name but with id I cannot disguise. What do others feel? Also, I notice all talk is generally for western men. What Thai women think of Asian men obviously non-Thai?
I want a casual hookup, not a relationship – how do I say that on Tinder?
That is to verify your identity and to prevent scammers using the site. I think it's a really good addition because it protects the members. You can still use a screen name, you don't need to show your real name. In terms of Asian men, different strokes for different folks. Many Thai women prefer Asian men over western men and vice versa. Sorry for the late response! During your Research, did you make bad experiances with that site? I don't actually, except that my Profile got locked one time for unknown reasons.
I protested, and they unlocked it. I did research DIA and didn't include it in my list because I started getting spam emails after registering for the free trial. Perhaps I will revisit this option and drop them an email about what happened. I have read online reviews about the Date In Asia type sites and users' experience has been that, once the sites get your credit card number, there is no stopping them from syphoning funds, even when a member wants to discontinue. I saw a couple of ladies I wanted to contact but was cut off until I paid up.
The approach of the site worried me and I gave up. What has your experience been? ThaiCupid is a bonafide site if you're looking for decent women. Of course, like all dating sites you're going to get some fakers and some nutters, but that goes for men too and the women have to be careful. I've been on there coming up 6 months and met a number of potential long-term suitors and had a few dates, all of which were pleasant and one lady I have continued to see.
Out of the bunch it seems the one that cares the most about security and confidentiality, which in this day and age when joining a website is very important. Stay away from Truly Thai. It's a fake websites that steals pictures from FB etc. I know this as I knew some of the girls on there and asked if they had profiles on there.
The website obviously uses them to get guys to pay the membership. I have reviewed a lot of those type of sites when doing my research. Thanks for reporting that. First off, thanks for the article. Made it really easy to get started! I have to say, after comparing the "talent" on ThaiCupid and ThaiFriendly, the size of the user database isn't really a plus on ThaiCupid. I'm struggling to find even a few decent looking girls who are using ThaiCupid recently, and I'm getting loads of messages from girls that I'm not remotely attracted to.
I'd say the interest I'm getting is more annoying than useful so far.
Best hookup apps (and sites) for casual daters
ThaiFriendly seems to have a lot more ladyboys, which is not really my thing, but there are tons of downright gorgeous real girls using the site regularly. The main downside is there is no profile info for English language ability, and the search is a bit limited past age, height, and location. I'm a picky guy regarding looks, so take it with a grain of salt, but I think the users are much more appropriate on ThaiFriendly for younger westerners who are used to dating attractive young girls.
I take your point, but TF seems to have more "freelance" type women on there. If you are looking for something a bit more serious with a woman within 10 years of your age, who is more independent - own job, own money - ThaiCupid is a better choice IMO. Is there a site where i could find women who are interested in dating with a man with the intention to go and live with the man in his country. Hi Henk, I think your best bet would be Thai Cupid.
That said, I'm sure many women would be open to this option if the relationship progressed to the point where such a decision needed to be made. Don't judge a Thai lady by her pics. Many ladies are just confident with their bodies or think they're being sexy also playful. Doesn't automatically mean they looking for casual relationship or a bar girl. Educated career ladies like to let loose occasionally to. Great point Dalca, I missed that feature but I'll add it into my review. You're totally right about the pictures. Just because a Thai woman has a playful picture on a dating site doesn't mean she is a "working girl".
We should all try be open-minded and non-judgemental, but with so much negative stereotyping going on sometimes it's hard to control your thoughts. I signed up for ThaiFriendly about a month ago. I've met a lot of nice ladies looking for something real. Most of these have contacted me, as opposed to the other way around. So if you want to find quality women looking for a real relationship, you can certainly do that at this site. A couple weeks in I had to change my profile to show me as always being "offline", because too many women were contacting me not a problem I've ever had using Match.
The Best 420-Friendly Dating and Friend-Finder Apps
So, it's really not too difficult to look and choose the type of women you are interested in, in my opinion anyway. And also, I must say I am stunned every time I go into the site with the beauty of these Thai women. Even if I see a profile and know she wouldn't be for me I'm a laid-back guy , or she looks like a bar-girl type, I still can't help looking at the photos. So many stunning women and I'm short, so it's like they are all custom-made for me lol!
dailyhassle.com/wora-mobile-instagram-location.php I think it's a good site, Joe. It has been around a while now so it has a solid membership base with a lot of female profiles. That said, ThaiCupid has far less Ladyboys and bar girls, if any at all, and a lot of educated women with good English speaking skills. I am a Good respectable Attractive Thai woman, Where can I find a good decent white male who's truly wants long lasting loving relationship.
I have tried some of these sites But I found None. Would like to try again, I am always at home. Hi Skylar, I think the main problem is that most foreign guys come to Thailand for a single life and don't want to get tied down, especially the younger guys in their 20s and 30s. Most guys are trying to escape the "married life" expected of them back home. That said, many guys do get tired of late nights and beer after a while and end up finding a girlfriend, and then there are guys who don't like to sleep around and are looking for something more meaningful. I also think online dating in Thailand is the same as it is in any other country; very hit and miss, and takes a good while and a good number of dates before you find someone suitable.
Stay positive, I'm sure Mr Right is out there. By the way i am from india. Do you know truly thai? Is it serious website? Yes, these are serious websites. The top three I have tested thoroughly. For example, you can read a review of ThaiCupid here: Thai Friendly is still my favorite and it's the only one that is really free.
Also the interface of Thai Friendly is much nicer than Thai Cupid they recently updated it and by now I'm sure both have about the same number of members with many girls signed up on both websites. That's not quite true Stefan, and certainly not my experience. As with pretty much all good dating sites, Thai Friendly is free only at a basic level. The subscription fees are as follows: ThaiCupid is the best site to meet professional, educated Thai women, as well as down to earth, reliable women looking for a genuine relationship.
If you aren't fussed about settling down and want some fun we girls aged , ThaiFriendly is a good option. During my review, I was contacted by a fair few "working girls" and ladyboys, but there were genuine girls too - though they were mostly early twenties and no doubt still into clubbing, drinking and well, being young and free. In terms of the user interface, you can't compete with ThaiCupid.
As a big brand they have a serious development team constantly working to deliver better usability and enhanced features. That's not to say ThaiFriendly isn't easy to use, but it doesn't have the slick usability a professional sheen of Thaicupid. Plus, because I live in a medical and now recreational state and an area that hosts a lot of events, I tend to have better luck meeting cannabis-friendly people in person.
