Our Review

Fling.com is a casual dating site where men and women of all races and sexual orientations can post personals to search for anything from a casual one-night stand to a summertime fling. The site, which was created in 2006 by Global Personals Media, has since grown to over 50 million members around the globe, with huge user numbers in the US, Russia and Australia.

There are no pretensions when it comes to Fling - from the sexually explicit profile photos to its live sex cam girls, the site is proud of its focus on casual sex and hookups. This is a place for people to gather and be comfortable with their sexuality, whether it be showing their naked body to strangers on the internet, to experimenting with various sexual experiences like group sex, couple swinging, BDSM and more. This isn't a website for people who are looking for serious, long-term relationships although for sure some of the members have developed feelings for their Friends with Benefits or casual fling. However, that is not the actual focus of the site so adjust your expectations accordingly.

Signing Up

Fling Registration
  • You need an email address to signup for an account
  • Registration only takes 1-2 minutes
  • You need to provide your zipcode and age
  • The site makes use of usernames instead of first names
  • Users who are from countries not supported by Fling get rerouted to WebDate.com

Although Fling.com advertises itself as an international dating site, it doesn't accommodate users from certain countries. If Fling.com does not support your country, you will be redirected to WebDate.com, another personals site from Global Personals Media.

If you can access the Fling.com website, you can sign up in one easy step. Just input your gender, your preferred match gender, your age, zip code, desired password and email address, and you're good to go. Fling.com will send an email, which you need to click to verify your account, but you can start using the site's features even without verifying it. 

Making Contact

Fling Search
  • The site follows a free search method as opposed to matching
  • You can search for new members or popular members
  • Filter search results by age, country, gender, and sexual preference
  • A premium membership is required to see and send messages
  • There is a chatroom

Fling probably has more free search options and filters compared to other dating websites. The basic search function allows you to search for other members using filters for age, country, zip code, sexual preference and gender. You can also limit your search to users who are currently online, users with photos, verifies accounts and those who are currently video streaming.

If these are not enough, you can access the advanced search options and look for members according to their eye color, height, hair color, body type, race and other specific profile fields. You can also search for users according to what they're into - whether it be threesomes or friends with benefits. You can also use the text field to type in keywords that you want your match to have in their profile.

You will get notifications whenever someone sends you a message; however, you cannot see the actual message unless you upgrade your account to premium. Similarly, you can't send messages to other users if you are a free user.

Profile Quality

male profile
  • The site employs a profile format similar to social media sites where you can post statuses on your profile page
  • The site encourages nudity as long as sexual organs don't take up majority of your picture
  • Profiles have fields for basic information such as age, height, body type, etc.
  • Text boxes allow you to go into more detail about who you are and what you're looking for
  • You cannot view other members' profiles as a free user
  • The profiles are quite detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to nobody for free

When it comes to profile information, Fling.com is very comprehensive. Aside from the information that it gathers from you during the registration phase, there are several text fields that you can fill up afterwards. There are fields for basic information such as height, age, body type, race, income, religion, spoken languages, living arrangements and profession. Aside from those, there are also text fields available - you can divulge what you're comfortable with (regular weekend sex or one-time flings) and your interests (threesomes, friends with benefits or experimenting).

To view another user's profile, you need to purchase a premium account. However, you can clearly see their profile picture even as a free user.

Real Life Review

I'm female and I'm from a conservative family, so I can't explore my sexuality freely without being labelled horrible things. When I joined Fling, I finally found a place where I could be me and not get mocked for it. At first, I was scared because I was doing something new, but in time I grew comfortable with it, especially since I'm not afraid that my secret life will get blown. Of course, I had to pay for my membership, but I guess it was okay since I could live my life freely. It feels so exciting posting pictures of my body and getting compliments from both men and women! I could get hookups whenever I feel the craving for it, and I can do it in complete privacy.

Design and Usability

Fling's design is extremely simple - some people might even find it lackluster. However, the site's design complements its, perfectly. Since the site has a plethora of features available, having a complex design would just clutter and complicate things. The simple design allows the site to keep things accessible, yet organized.

Editors Conclusion

Chris Pleines
Obviously, Fling isn't for everyone. It isn't the place to find a long-term relationship or the love of your life. However, if you want to explore your sexuality and find others who are into the same things as you are, then it is the perfect place for you. The site is so confident that it'll find a hookup or fling for you that it even guarantees a hookup in 3 months, or else you'll get 3 more months for free. The only downside to it is that you don't get a lot of features as a free user.
