Catch is a free Craiglist Personnel Optional App which is looking for casual encounters, local NSA hookups, friends with profits and adult chat.I believe Tinder is still one of the popular apps for hookups. There are a few others out there that are starting to grow. So far I have tried ‘CasualHookup’ and ‘WellHello’ and I haven’t been disappointed yet. I been able to find quite a few people on there but I also live in a big city.
Wow, this really is crazy.
While the quality had absolutely TANKED in the past four or five years, a huge, huge part of my initial sexual exploration was via Casual Encounters. I made great friends, FWBs, even long-term partners. I learned about my kinks, my preferences, had an astounding number of adventures.. and now that's just.. gone.
I'm not under any illusions that CE hadn't become an order of magnitude trashier than it had been when I used it in earnest and with frequent success, but it's.. still very strange to think of it as something that no longer exists. Very sad.
Prepare for the glorious migration of all the collective craigslist fucksquatches to Fetlife, Tinder, Grinder, and misc personals boards.

Best place on the internet to get straight to the point of what you are looking for, be that love, a fwb, a hookup, or a missed connection, and if you so chose, it did not have to have money involved like backpage or many of the other supposed "personal" sections on sites like cl...
I can only imagine how hard it might be for people struggling with their sexuality. Craigslist was an outlet for them, as it was for me too. It's a unique type of outlet, where people could express them self freely and anonymously. I can only hope we get it back one day...
This is my super list of
the best alternatives to Craigslist personals and backpage
