An online dating site for those who are not looking for anything serious, Fling helps users hook up for a casual encounter. The site doesn’t look like much when you fits land on the homepage, however, there are tons of features hiding behind the poor layout. As a guest you can take a guided tour of the services Fling offers and see some of the members in your area, but you’ll need to sign up for an account to avail of any interaction or features. Signing up is a quick and simple process with a shirt form to complete and a free trial membership for new users. You can then complete a profile to tell other users about yourself and what exactly you’re looking for on the site. Once you have completed your profile, you can search members in your local area with a ton of search options. The site also has verified members to help protect its users, with verification taking a couple of minutes on a webcam. Verified members then display a verification badge on their profile. As a member you can also avail of the video chat feature in a range of chatrooms.
There are tons of features available for Fling members beyond just finding someone to hook up with. These are all available when you sign up for a free account and include:

What We Like
We like the idea of a site that is dedicated to casual encounters and Fling certainly delivers. There are tons of users in the database and with advanced searching options you can specify exactly what radius you would like someone to be in, what their sexual preferences are, and many other filters. The ability to send private messages helps move things along from the online world to the real world and there is always an active chatroom to keep you entertained while waiting for a reply.
What We Don’t Like
The payment structure on Fling is a bit suspect and we recommend you availing of the free trial to test the site out before committing to a premium and paid membership. There are many positive aspects to the site, but it is certainly worth checking it out to ensure it is suitable before committing.
Overall, Fling is a great way to meet people in your area for a casual encounter. We found plenty of members within a short radius and although some members aren’t active, others tend to log in constantly. We recommend trying out the service using the free trial period to see if it is suitable for you and hope you are one of the many success stories!
