Need a hookup? It’s no surprise that college students are prime consumers of hookup apps, but with so many to choose from, it can be difficult to find the right one. Here are three of the best hookup apps currently available and what they have to offer you as a college student.
It’s no secret that college students like to hook up. The swiping function on Tinder makes it easy to find a partner, even if you’re surrounded by people—the perfect situation for a little boozy experimentation. Even though it can be difficult to have s*x in your room with roommates around, a quick fix would be to look for places where there are fewer inhibitions (like frat parties or house parties).
If you feel safe and secure, then meeting new people through Tinder could be fun! For those who aren’t looking to hook up, meeting someone from Tinder is still fun because you’ve got something else in common with them.
After all, everyone likes talking about themselves. You might just learn some interesting things about someone else before going home together!
When it comes to s*x and relationships, Grindr has always been a pioneer. Since its launch in 2009, it has redefined how gay men can meet. There are plenty of sex hook-up apps out there, but few have become as ubiquitous or essential to LGBT culture as Grindr.
Even if you’re not on it—and statistically most people are not—you know someone who is (or at least knows about someone who is).
The app shows you profiles based on your location and displays where you’ve crossed paths with other users, which makes it easy to find guys who live nearby and have also been looking for a hook-up.
Because Tinder is mostly only used by 20-somethings, people in their 30s and up may find it limiting. Hinge doesn’t have quite as high of a user base as Tinder but you can target those specific age ranges that are more likely to be interested in you.
Its focus on relationships instead of hookups also appeals to different users. This might be a good option if you’re trying to get into another dating app but don’t want one with younger users who would prefer hookups over actual dating.
While it does have some quirks, there is nothing wrong with Hinge being marketed toward adults looking for relationships instead of just s*x—they’re both equally important.
This dating app works very differently from others. It doesn’t just match you with people—it matches you with people in your area, and lets you decide if you want to connect. The premise is that women make the first move (thereby removing pressure on guys to come up with cheesy chat-up lines).
It was created by Whitney Wolfe, who left Tinder after filing a sexual harassment lawsuit against her co-founder, Justin Mateen. She then joined forces with her former boss at Hatch Labs (and ex-boyfriend) Chris Gulczynski and Serena Williams’s ex-boyfriend/cofounder of Stamped Adam Galkin.
Although Tinder and OkCupid have become infamous for facilitating hookups, Pure—at least in theory—is all about getting laid. According to its press kit, Pure is all about being open, honest, and transparent with one another, which means that if users don’t want to hook up, they should swipe left on other users instead of right.
This definitely makes it more difficult to fall into bed with someone you’ve just met at a bar on a whim; however, if you’re not willing to try out a new way of meeting people (which I’m guessing many college students aren’t), it’s not worth your time. Also: The price tag may be a deal-breaker.
