  • What is DOWN Dating App?

    DOWN Dating App is the most honest in dating and hookup apps. With DOWN Dating, you can choose whether you want more serious relationships or pure hookups.
    As the best dating app on android and iOS, we view sexuality as a healthy, natural, and crucial aspect in relationships. We are adults, so sexual intention and attraction shouldn't be shamed for (especially in an adult dating app).
    We want you to have fun with your dating app matches, and we believe it's healthier if people are up-front with what they want by specifying if they want to GET (a) DATE or GET DOWN.

  • How do I create an account for DOWN Dating App?

    You can download DOWN Dating app on Android (Google Play) and iOS (App Store). After it’s downloaded, you can sign in through Apple, Google, Phone number or Facebook.

  • Wait, so how do I use DOWN Dating App? I don't swipe left or right?

    Glad you asked! Unlike other dating hookup apps, you don't swipe left or right to get a dating app match when using DOWN Dating App - you swipe up or down. Swiping up means you want to GET (a) DATE while swiping down means you want to GET DOWN with your dating app matches.
    If you're not interested in a potential dating app match, you can swipe left and move on - but don't worry! You can still come back to their profile if you changed your mind.

  • What is Get DATE and Get DOWN?

    Swiping up to Get DATE means you are looking for something more serious – a potential partner or the start of serious relationships.
    Swiping down to Get DOWN means you are looking for pure hookups or open relationships - maybe some drinks first, but you're not on the hunt for something serious.

  • What is Snap Match?

    DOWN Dating App’s feature Snap Match is a quick and easy, random chat matchmaking system that allows people to find a virtual human connection and date internationally.

  • What if someone swiped UP on me, but I swiped DOWN? Are we dating app matches?

    Not to worry, if you both swiped in different directions, DOWN Dating App will still set you up as dating app matches and notify you. We'll let both of you know that as dating app matches, you both like each other and should talk more first.

  • What are Nearby Picks (Daily Picks) and how are they selected?

    Nearby Picks are curated results based on your preferences. You will receive new results every day if we have good ones to send you!

  • How do I undo a match?

    Simply search for that specific person in your messages, swipe halfway left and tap “Unmatch". All set! Crisis averted.

  • I accidentally unmatched someone, can I restore the match?

    Sadly, this action cannot be undone. With that said, please double check before you unmatch someone to make sure you don't accidentally miss out on the one!

  • I keep trying to join but I can't! What's happening?

    DOWN Dating App is not a dating app for teens, so first off we’ve got to make sure you’re older than 18. If not, that is why you can’t start DOWN Dating. If you are older than 18 and are still experiencing a problem, please close the application and try again or contact us at, we’d love to help!
