Want to know what options are available if you are looking for casual, no strings attached, dating in the Canberra area?
There are plenty of adult dating services online but many are geared towards those who are looking for a commitment or long term relationship. So, where can you go to find women who are just interested in casual dating? The kind of woman who is happy to go out for a few beers and have some uncomplicated sex afterwards?
In our guide to casual online dating in Canberra, we take a look at some of the best services you can pay for to help find a woman to tick your boxes.
Paying to register with online dating services might seem like a cop out, particularly when there are free to use classifieds like Cracker, Locanto and Backpage offering genuine ads for women interested in casual dating.
However, the truth is that there is a lot of competition from men just like you who all want a piece of the action; whilst hooking up this way is possible, the odds are just not in your favour.
One of the big benefits of paying for membership to a casual dating service is that other members are all verified and actively looking for exactly what you are; no strings attached fun.
Most of the sites below will allow you to join for free, allowing you to browse the site and, in some instances, look at the profiles of users in Canberra.
However, these trial memberships are usually extremely limited and do not allow you to make contact with other members. Useful to be able to size a site up but not for getting a hook up. The bottom line is, find one you like the look of and take the plunge. You won’t regret it.
We kick off with Australia’s largest online dating site, Adult Matchmaker.
The site has around 2.5 million registered users in Australia and plenty of those are located in and around Canberra. During peak times, the site has around 10,000 users who are active making the site the biggest online meat market in Australia.
The site is popular as a general dating site but also with women looking for something discreet or kinky as well as casual encounters. Adult Matchmaker has made it easy to find them by using a categorisation system where users opt in to exactly what they are looking for.
Membership starts at $53.95 per month with incentives of discounts and free ‘Playboy’ magazine subscriptions for longer term sign-ups.
Adult Friend Finder
Offering much more than just a community for hooking up, Adult Friend Finder is a global site with more bells and whistles than a bush music club.
Not only can you sign up for casual encounters but you can also access a whole host of live member webcams and adult chat or enroll in the Sex Academy.
The site is very popular with swingers and you can find lots of couples looking for single guys and other like-minded couples.
Setting up a profile can be as easy as you want but the more detail you create, the better chances your success of hooking up. Information such as your ‘kinks’, personality type and the results of your ‘Purity Test’ all go a long way to attracting more female attention.
Membership starts at just $26.00.
This simple site offers a mixed bag of women; some are looking for a more casual encounter whilst others seem to be interested in arrangements. It’s a slimmed down but slightly friskier version of something like eHarmony or Match.com so you will need to be specific in what you are looking for to avoid any confusion.
With the onus on no strings attached sex, NSA Canberra has a couple of hundred listings of women around the ACT and Canberra area. Free to join and have a nose around, this site is easy to use and doesn’t try to be something it’s not. Honest casual dating without any chance of commitment.
This site operates a number of catch-all web addresses including NaughtyMeetings.com and they purport to have thousands of users in the Canberra area. Once you are registered you instantly receive messages from women all after a piece of your action. Normally we’d be flattered but having not even updated any photos or even basic details it smacks a little of an automated service.
That said, there does appear to be genuine users registered and the free access to a lot of the site is a draw. However, the vast majority of the site is definitely geared towards campsites and porn so there is a benefit to your membership even if your hook ups don’t work out.
A big site with a big presence but not the best of experiences hooking up with genuine members.
F-Buddy offers a more explicit take on the casual dating scene and offers men and women the opportunity to hook up with the expectation of a simple fuck buddy arrangement. Listings are hit and miss but your odds of a good match will be greatly improved with a more detailed profile.
Lastly, we bring you an option which crops up in the searches but not one we could get on to review.
No Strings Dating
Running several sites across Australia, each catering for a niche audience looking for a hook up, No Strings Dating has received a mix of good and bad reviews.
For some reason, the site doesn’t allow certain IP addresses to register for the services which is not the best start for an online dating site.
However, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that the site has lots of good points… if you can actively register in your area.
