We know how frustrating it can be for someone who’s looking for a free dating site. It seems like almost every dating or hookup site has the words 100% free plastered all over their homepage. You sign up only to realize that it’s going to cost you a few bucks if you want to actually use all their features. If you can’t contact other members, there’s really no way of actually hooking up with anyone.
We’ve simplified the task for you and compiled a list of twenty-seven 100% free hookup sites. They’re free to sign up to, free to contact other members and allow you full access to all their features. We’ve done our absolute best to provide you with an accurate list of free dating sites. There may be a handful of sites on our list that will have paid upgrades but they won’t limit your capacities in any way. If any of these sites decide to change their platform and start charging, do let us know and we’ll remove and replace them in a timely manner.
The order in which these appear is in no way a ranking of the best free dating or hookup sites. Be advised that using a free dating site has its disadvantages. Spam, fake profiles, scammers, and pretenders are abundant. Always use common sense when interacting with another member for the first time. Do your own due diligence and stay safe. For a list of premium paid sites that are geared towards easy adult hookups, check out our post titled Best Online Hookup Sites for 2017
27 Absolutely Free Dating Sites
#1 Plenty of Fish (POF)
This is one of the biggest, most reputable free dating sites you’ll find. They’re ranked in the top 1000 websites by Alexa and get over 100 million sessions per month. Despite their popularity, it’s still quite difficult to find a match using POF. The internet is littered with comments from people who simply couldn’t find anyone. There is quite a big gap between the active male members and the active female members which make it pretty difficult for the men to find true love. Still, a decent choice for anyone who’s unable to use a premium dating site.
Badoo is most likely your best bet if you’re looking to hook up with no strings attached.
This is a site that has more than 300 million members and a large percentage of its users are strictly looking for something casual. You owe it to yourself to try this site out if paying for membership is not an option.
Badoo entered the North American market in 2012 and has amassed a giant database of users. It’s completely free to sign up, contact other members, and set up spicy dates.
Mobile apps and a desktop version are both available.
This is an APP that allows you to browse the userbase and make video calls in hopes of finding Mr. or Ms. Right. If you’re an introvert, this can be a little scary and overwhelming. If not, it’s worth a try. Its limited active member base makes it a little difficult to find someone if you’re in a rural area. Depending on where you are this can be a winner or a loser.
SaucyDates is an adult dating site connecting singles for casual encounters and discreet flings with no strings attached. The members are pretty keen to meet up and it didn’t take us long at all to actually make a date. If you don’t mind a site with lots of ads on it SaucyDates is for you.
Here is yet another one of the more popular free dating sites you’ll find online. A decent free dating site loaded with fun features. OkCupid allows its members to create their own tests and quizzes. This is a great way to make sure the person contacting you is a compatible, potential mate. There’s been a surge in fake female profiles as of late so be vigilant when divulging any personal information. It can get a little frustrating when the fake messages outnumber the real ones but it’s still a decent choice if you’re strapped for cash.
If you’re in Australia, OasisActive is a decent choice. If not, move on. Although they have profiles in other parts of the world, the majority simply aren’t legit. We tried very hard to connect with other members. We lowered the bar, no we removed it altogether, and still weren’t able to get a single date. Reviews from members in Australia rank from Average to Very Good.
Fdating is a free dating site that won’t charge you a penny to join or chat with other members. A decent place to hang out and chat with others but you probably won’t actually meet anyone. The lack of members that are online makes it very difficult to connect with anyone. Also, the female members seem to be mostly in Russia, the Ukraine, and other Eastern European countries.
A good free dating site for men and women from the UK. The signup registration may spook a few of you when they ask you to join using one of your social media accounts. But rest assured, nothing will be posted on any of your accounts. It’s one way to minimize the fake accounts and it works quite well. Almost every profile we checked out seemed genuine.
Here’s another free adult hookup site geared towards finding no strings attached relationships. After signing up, you’ll be presented with multiple people from your area and you’ll have to say yes or no to them. Sort of like swiping on Tinder. The search function is good and the results returned are also above average. You can initiate chat with any other members at any time without ever spending any money. Your first reaction will be to assume that most of the profiles are fake. You won’t be far off. It can be a little confusing at times to figure out who’s real and who’s fake. Still above average for a free hookup site.
Popular in some cities and virtually non-existent in others, Matchopolis can be a great choice depending on whether or not it’s popular where you live. It’s a completely free dating site and you can use all the features without ever having to enter any credit card details. A little limited in ways to interact with others and obviously there are quite a few fake profiles. Still, it’s free and can help you meet someone if you put in the effort and are in the right place.
FlirtHut isn’t as big as some of the other sites we’ve listed here so finding an actual match can be hard work. We sent out numerous messages to other members and didn’t get a single response. Maybe you’ll be luckier. Some people have left positive reviews and claimed to have met on FlirtHut. It’s free, so you might as well give it a try.
You may have never heard of LuvFree, but it’s growing in popularity and becoming the go-to site for many singles looking for love. They do a pretty decent job at controlling the spam and the fake profiles. Before even registering, you can browse profiles and filter them by age, sex, location. Go ahead and see if there’s someone who catches your eye. If you like what you see, you can sign up. It’s absolutely free so you’ve got everything to gain and nothing to lose.
#13 Free Dating America
FreeDatingAmerica.com is a dating site that’s 100% free to use. Obviously, it’s only for people live in the United States and although they claim to have a vast database of members in every city in the US, our testers found that this simply wasn’t true. On our 12 test accounts, we were successful in landing dates on 2 of those accounts. It’s an above average option for anyone seeking out a free online dating site, but only if you’re in a densely populated city or if you’re willing to do some traveling.
Spark.com is a popular choice with a an active userbase. However, although they claim to be a free online dating site, the free membership is somewhat limited. We’re including it in our list of free dating sites simply because you can still find a real date with a free membership. You are not able to initiate conversation with other members as a free user, but if someone with a premium membership contacts you first, you’re able to reply. Which is something most premium sites don’t offer their free users.
Crush Zone is a free dating and chat site for teens. If you’re over 21 years old and have no idea who Zayn Malik is, or don’t know the lyrics to the latest Arianna Grande song, move on to the next site. If you’re 14-21, this is a great choice to find your next crush.
Here’s a free niche dating site for women seeking Sugardadies or rich men looking for Sugarbabies. The site is free for both men and women and you’ll have access to all the features findrichguys.com has to offer immediately after signing up. It’s somewhat contradictory seeing as a rich man would have no problem paying for premium membership. The members are not verified like on premium Sugar Daddy sites. Use some common sense when setting up dates on Findrichguys.
AltScene is a niche dating site that’s 100% free, you can sign up, set up a profile, and communicate with other members without having to purchase a monthly subscription. If you’re a single punk, emo, rocker, skater, metalhead or anything in between, AltScene might just be the place for you. As with all niche dating sites, the member base is limited which can make finding someone quite a long process.
ConnectingSingles offers lots of options to all its free members. From sending messages, flowers, and eCards, to forums, blogs, polls, poetry groups, games, and lots more. If you connect with someone, you’ll rarely be bored. Profiles seem to be moderated lightly, which leads to a lot of scams and fake profiles floating around. Their service is offered to numerous countries around the world, but few are populated enough to actually help members find matches.
This is a small community of mature (over 50) individuals looking for love. The members seemed to be legit and quite active. This is another case where your location will determine whether or not MatureAttractions is the right fit for you. Signing up isn’t much of a hassle and it’s free. See if your city is digging MatureAttractions. If any of you younger readers are interested in joining, this is NOT a milf hookup site. You’ll be wasting your time.
GirlFriendsMeet is a free lesbian dating site that matches its users based on interests. (Tv Shows, Movies, Music, Books etc,). After setting up your profile, they’ll connect you with likeminded people near you. Growing in popularity, GirlfriendsMeet is quickly becoming the go-to dating site for many lesbian, bisexual, and bi-curious women all over the world.
We hadn’t heard of this site before researching free online dating sites for this list. It’s not very popular but can be a helpful tool for specific people. Friendsmatchme is a dating site that uses your Facebook profile to help match you with friends of friends. Facebook stalkers will surely find a good use for this I’m sure. Not enough members to actually be compared with many of the other choices on this list.
MetroDate has changed its pricing policy to offer free membership to all its members. You have the option to upgrade in order to send unlimited flirts, but almost every feature on this site is free. Although they are actively removing fake profiles, there’s still an unusually high amount of scams going around on MetroDate so one must be very vigilant. After sifting through the fakes, we were able to actually get some responses from real members. An average experience for a free dating site.
If the daily grind has hindered your personal life, 2busy2date wants to match you up with someone in that same position. We got responses from nearly 10% of the members we contacted which is pretty good considering this is a 100% free dating site. 2Busy2Date seems heavily moderated which is, of course, a good thing for serious singles looking for a real connection. This isn’t a very popular dating site, and the locals are limited.
Flirty9 is absolutely free to use and a great choice for men and women from Sweden. Although it may be open to other countries, it really isn’t worth any time or effort because of the lack of activity from any other country.
#25 MatchMeHappy UK
MatchMeHappy is one of UK’s most popular free dating sites. There are thousands of genuine members from the UK that have already signed up and the numbers are growing daily. Our testers were able to get many responses from other members but weren’t actually able to schedule a real date with anyone, male or female. Many of the members we contacted were content to keep things online rather than move things along.
#26 LoveThing UK
Just like our previous entry, LoveThing is also one of UK’s more popular free dating sites. Many singles and lots of interaction. There is a strong level of moderation to keep the spam, scams, and pretenders at bay.
If you’re Christian, and your partner’s faith is a game changer, Fusion101 will help you connect with other single Christians. This website is totally free and grants its members access to every feature upon completion of registration. Currently, there are more than 300,000 real, genuine, single Christians that have been vetted by Fusion101. Our impression was that this is an above average Free Christian dating site.
