From the name of iHookup, you'd guess it is some kind of casual hookup joint. Is it? Yes and No. iHookup claims to be for saucy daters who just donât want to commit to a full blown relationship.
From the name of iHookup, you’d guess it is some kind of casual hookup joint. Is it? Yes and No. Some might say that is just and “adult dating website” in disguise. But to be fair to them , they do have a number of options to help you find someone who’s compatible on a more meaningful level, rather than just in bed.
iHookup works on the idea that quick, local dates are where it’s at. It is all about finding someone close by, for a quick meet up. From then on, you decide if you want to take things further.
What I found with iHookup was that as with other apps and websites that focus on physical it tends to be overrun with men. From the searches I did in my local area, I found there were about five guys for every one girl.
Ladies have the Power!
For girls, you should have your choice of whom you want to meet. I do recommend uploading several decent photos. You have control of who can see your pictures from the privacy settings. Photos albums can be private or public. For women, there will not be any shortage of offers - at least if you are under forty-five and reasonably attractive. Fortunately, there is a block feature so that you can control who can access you.
iHookup will tell you who’s in your area at any time and you can send them a wink to get things started. This is especially effective if you’re using mobile.
Flirting is free, as is viewing as many photos as you want. The flirt is a good way to break the ice and strike up a chat with someone - you’ll quickly find out a) if they are still active on the site, and b) more important if they are interested in you. Beyond sending quick first flirts, access to the chat system requires an upgrade (see more).
They also offer a 2 day trial that costs $7.98. Be warned though, you have to cancel the trial before it expires else you’ll be automatically enrolled for membership and you credit card billed.
