Are you single and ready to mingle? The world is becoming more digital and finding a partner to hookup with is literally just a tap away.
Despite previously held notions about hooking up, it has become quite acceptable in today’s society, even getting the green light from many sex/dating experts. In regions like the U.K., it’s that time of year when a lot of people who are single begin to seek out companionship, typically referred to as the “cuffing season”—the cold period between the beginning of autumn and the start of spring.
“We might like to think that we are deeply complex creatures but when it comes down to it we are simple. In the summer, when the sun is shining and the temperature is warm, we are more content to remain single,” said Joseph Green for Mashasble.
“We socialise more, meet new people, and enjoy the feeling of being untethered. As the leaves turn from green to crispy shades of Autumn however, we yearn for companionship. It’s a fact. It’s science. It’s instinct.”
Green notes that as humans, just like other mammals, our natural instinct dictates that we protect ourselves during harsh weather conditions and finding a mate could equally be a solution.
“Much like a bear, our natural intuition tells us to bunker down and protect ourselves from the oncoming cold. That means movie marathons, duvet days, and ideally someone to hug and to hold.”
“As the cold weather bites, you owe it to yourself to find that special someone, even if what you are really searching for is a human-sized hot water bottle,” he continued.
Nonetheless, here are five hookup sites in the UK to help you prepare adequately for the cuffing season.

F-Buddy can be regarded as one of the fastest growing sex dating site in the UK. This erotic casual dating site is a suitable platform for finding someone for strictly sexual activity without all the strings attached to normal hook-ups.
F-Buddy boasts of a rather large databank of about 4,500,000 members and with over 2,000,000 users living in the UK. Signing up is entirely free, which allows you to set up a profile, but to gain access to the best features you would need to upgrade to a full membership—which grants you access to send and receive private messages, see who has viewed your profile, add multiple photos to your profile and watch video profiles of other members.
One feature worthy of note is the "Dating Diaries" section, which gives members the chance to share their feelings and thoughts with other members. Just like a regular social networking site, you can follow interesting members and read their posts.
TheCasualLounge is another hookup site that recently entered the UK market but has gathered about 100,000 members looking for casual dates, one-night stands and short-term flings.
The Casual Lounge uses an Intelligent Matching system to pair suitable sex partners, and users can equally search for another member as well. However, the system allows for members to be matched up based on their sexual preferences (whether they’re into French kissing, fetish clubs, dogging or have specific sex positions etc.), ensuring a higher-level of quality dates.
One major downside for TheCasualLounge.co.uk is their rather exorbitant prices, especially for men who have to pay in order to communicate.
4. Ashley Madison
Arguably one of the most popular adultery website, Ashley Madison is typically for those seeking companionship only during the cuffing season—as itis tailored towards attached individuals searching for discreet sexual encounters.
The website is brilliantly set up, with a user-friend layout and sensitive navigation and it equally has an extensively large user base.
Nonetheless, the site still lacks some basic community-based features such as chatrooms or forums and the payment system is equally confusing lacking the standard option of month-by-month membership.
Launching in 2008, C-Date.co.uk brought the American concept of “casual dating” to the UK, growing into one of the leading adult dating sites in the UK.
C-Date is an agency that connects people together with sole purpose of spontaneous casual sex. Currently, there are over 3,200,000 registered members in the UK with an estimated 25,000 new members worldwide joining every day.
The site is very discrete and keeps users strictly anonymous, however they receive suitable date suggestions daily and can contact whoever they find interesting.
