Members and Profiles

Although dating sites and apps like HookUpDaters have moved forward with their biases and given enough space to the LGBTQ+ members, the predatory straight users still have to go a long way to correct their mindset. Nonetheless, HookUpDaters is one of those rare sites where all the members are authentic, genuine, and straightforward, avoiding the creep factor. Almost all the members on HookUpDaters explicitly mention their desire, hookup, or romantic relationship, to help you quickly review them and find whether communicating with them is worth it or not. The profile, however, is not that in-depth. There is space for only a few sections, enough to tell you about the — hotness level, but inadequate to explain their mindset or mind. Still, the "minimalist" nature gives many users a reason for talking to others, pointing them in the right direction if they do not know how to initiate a conversation.


HookUpDaters being a dedicated website of LGBTQ+ members, understands that secrecy and discreteness are more important than anything else. That is why it implements and incorporates world-class security functionalities onto its sites. Almost everything is channeled under cover of 256-bit layered encryption, making anyone impossible to crack. Moreover, it also excludes social sign-up options to ensure no public view whatsoever, regardless of whether the user wants or does not.

It discourages users from coming to personal safety to not engage in unnecessary meetings on the site until you see the verified tag on the profile. Moreover, there are also tons of references accessible on its site that you can review to know the basics of online dating, i.e., how to meet for the first time and more.

Hookupdaters Reviews

Here's what review from HookUpDaters app tells us about the site:

Paige, 31 - "I used to believe that not all things in life are as beautiful as HookUpDaters talks about, but after finding the love of my life through the site, I think my views are changing."

Norman, 52 - "At the time of registering myself on the site, I did not think it was a wise decision to spend money on this 'youthful site,' but I'm glad I did."

Ellen, 25 - "For a girl of this generation, I found it hard to believe in things like 'match made by god.' But if Leslie and I are together, it has to be some miracle. God! I stepped on the site to spend my days and nights in meaningless sex and practice debauchery in my youth, but soon I met someone I could spend my whole life with and not regret for a second. I think it has less to do with God and more to do with the HookUpDaters algorithm. But then again, who knows?"
