DOWN App is the best hookup app if you're searching for singles nearby. We are the most honest dating app — unlike other apps like Tinder, with DOWN Dating App you can choose whether you want a date or a hookup. As the best dating app for the open minded, we are sex positive and view sexuality as a healthy, natural, and crucial aspect in adult dating. We are adults, so sexual intention and attraction shouldn't be shamed for. 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.

You can download DOWN App on Android (Google Play) and iOS (App Store). We used to be the go-to app for Facebook dating back in the day (called Bang With Friends), so you can still use your Facebook to login/sign in, as well as your Apple ID or Google account.

Glad you asked! We're not just another dating app or hook up app. You don't swipe left or right and using DOWN 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 match. If you're not interested in their dating profile, you can swipe left and move on — but don't worry, you can still come back to their profile if you change your mind.

Swiping up to Get DATE means you're looking for something like a partner, a serious, romantic relationship, or even just a date night. Swiping to Get DOWN means you're looking for one night stands(ONS), friends with benefits (FWB), a netflix and chill, or just a quickie — you're not looking for something serious.

DOWN App's feature Snap Match is a random chatting matchmaker that allows users to find virtual chemistry and chat internationally.

DOWN App's feature 3some allows you to choose a variety of options based on your preferences when it comes to threesomes, polyamory, a 3way, a ménage à trois — whatever you wanna call it. If you don't have a partner, you can choose all types of arrangements for whom you would like to join your threesomes: 2 men, 2 women, or 1 man and 1 woman. If you have a partner and would like to engage in threesomes or polyamory, you can choose between adding 1 man, 1 woman, or any single person.

If you're a single woman who'd like to join threesomes, once you use the 3some feature on DOWN you'll be rewarded with a Unicorn badge shown on your profile! So go on and show off that badge!

DOWN helps you highlight your best traits using stickers that are displayed on your dating profile. There are multiple options like “Kinky”, “Juicy”, “Funny”, and many more! DOWN App provides over 30 different stickers for you to showcase your best attributes to attract the right dating app match. This feature allows you to choose the type of local hookup you want based on the Highlight sticker displayed so you can see just what makes them special.

Go to Settings and make sure your Push Notifications are on! If you match with the same intentions (e.g. You both say GET DATE), we'll tell you.

Not to worry, if you both swiped in different directions, DOWN App will still set you up and notify you. We'll let both of you know that you both like each other and should have a deeper conversation first.

On DOWN App, you can do so by going to the Visitors tab and tapping the You Liked page.

Nearby Picks are curated results based on your preferences. You will receive new results every day if we have good ones to send you! Over time, whether you're looking for a committed relationship, a date night, friends with benefits (FWB), or one night stands(ONS), DOWN App will learn and we'll provide you more and better potential dating app matches.

Yes, DOWN App lets you filter by gender, location, and sexual preferences. We take into account a few factors in order to show the best dating profiles for you.

We want you to be comfortable and safe on DOWN. We strive to be the dating app free of scams, spams, and anything that can harm you. To report suspicious profiles, tap on the right side of the profile until you reach their bio page. There's a button next to their name that allows you to report their profile if they have inappropriate pictures/bio or if they are underage. If this doesn't solve your issue, please contact us. And thanks for making the platform a safer place!

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

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!

DOWN 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!
