The Top San Bernardino Hookup Apps & Bars
We have had a lot of success recently with a few of the best hookup apps in San Bernardino and they are worth checking out. There are a lot of sites that are a complete waste of time so using one that is proven to work is the smart thing to do.
We always encourage our readers to mix meeting people on hookup apps with meeting people when you are socializing around town. Still, we have yet to find a faster and easier way to meet a lot of other singles than the apps below. If you have not tried them out yet it is well worth the few minutes it takes to get up and running. We spend a ton of time putting together our review of the best hookup apps around so we know what we are talking about.
The Beer Room and other beer gardens work like magic
When you are looking for a good hookup spot in San Bernardino you want to find a spot that has a good selection of booze and also an environment where it is really easy to mingle with the other people there. Beer gardens are perfect for this.
Beer gardens are super relaxed and tend to have big crowds of single people standing around and talking. There are few places where it is easier to start a conversation with a lot of other singles and see how things go. Friday and Saturday nights tend to be best and you ideally should be there between 9 and midnight if a hookup is what you’re after.
Adult FriendFinder – The best hookup app in San Bernardino for most
After a lot of research and experimentation, it became pretty clear that Adult FriendFinder was the most useful site in actually helping us find hookups. There are a few things that separate the best hookup sites from all the rest that we always look out for:
- How popular is the site – Are a lot of people in San Bernardino using this app to meet each other?
- Quality of the users – Is it being used by people you would actually want to meet?
- Can normal people find success – Will someone who isn’t very good looking be able to be successful using this site?
- Trustworthiness – Have they been around for a while with a proven track record of success?
- Do they have a free trial – Any site that believes it can do what it claims will let people try it out for free.
As we used Adult FriendFinder and did more intense research we found a lot to like. They have a ton of active members (over 90,000,0000 and they are by far the most popular San Bernardino hookup app with people 30+). The only real competition in terms of the number of people using their app is Tinder and their users are almost all under 30. If you are interested in hooking up with anyone over 30, you are going to have way better success with Adult FriendFinder. They have a lot of people in their 20s as well so you don’t have to pick one or the other.
Another big benefit that this site has is that it is much easier for people who are not in the top 10% in looks to find someone. On Tinder, the guys who are in the top 10-15% of attractiveness get almost all the female attention. That is a rough experience for us guys who have something to offer but are not male models. Adult FriendFinder is much easier for more normal guys to get lucky. They have been around for nearly fifteen years and you don’t stick around that long if you are only helping out really good looking people!
Last but not least, they have a free trial offer (you can find it here) so you have nothing to lose by giving them a shot. If you are looking to have as many chances as is technologically possible for a hookup (and why wouldn’t you?) you need to check them out.
Tinder – If you are particularly good looking and under 28 it’s great for a San Bernardino hookup
Tinder is the San Bernardino hookup app that just about every millennial has heard about and tried. It is all over the place with over 50,000,000 users around the world. If you happen to be one of the San Bernardino locals that is very attractive and you want to only hookup with someone under 28, Tinder is going to be a great choice for you. It’s easy to use but you really need to have good pictures to be successful on this San Bernardino hookup site.
For those of us that are honest enough to know we are not going to be on a billboard any time soon, Adult FriendFinder is probably going to work better. Tinder is extremely photo-driven and more and more often the women on the app are only there to get an ego boost from the attention they get from the guys. They can get dozens or even hundreds of messages a day and often don’t respond to any of them. It is basically an automated compliment machine for them.
Tinder has a free trial which is great and getting started is pretty easy. If you are a really good looking fellow or a girl who wants to get a lot of compliments, you are going to have fun.
Grocery stores like Clark’s Nutrition & Natural Foods are great places to meet people for a hookup
At first glance, you might be wondering why we suggest a grocery store as a place to hookup with women in San Bernardino. Fair question! Hear us out on this and you will thank us later.
There are few places where a guy has an easier chance of walking up to a woman and starting a conversation as easily as at the grocery store. This is especially true in the produce aisle where striking up a conversation couldn’t be easier.
If you go between 5 PM and 8 PM most days of the week, you are going to find a ton of single women pushing shopping carts around. It is extremely easy to walk up to a woman who is looking at produce and asking a simple question like “Do you know if these are in season?” to break the ice and get a conversation going. It really doesn’t get any easier.
Guys looking to hookup with older women (and vice versa) are going to love Cougar Life
Men in their 20s and 30s who want to hookup with women in their 30s, 40s, or even older are in a tough position. It can be really hard to tell if a woman is open to hooking up with a younger guy in San Bernardino. The last thing you want is to spend time and money trying to attract a woman who doesn’t even consider you a possibility.
The same is true for women. There is a bit of a social stigma against women dating younger guys (which is crazy since it doesn’t apply to men dating younger women) which makes them less likely to be open with their interest. Fortunately, Cougar Life is a hookup site specifically designed to help younger guys connect with attractive women 30+. No other site is anywhere as good.
In terms of size, Cougar Life has over 7,000,000 members and all the women on the site are interested in dating a younger guy. One of the interesting things about this site is that the guys don’t tend to be quite as attractive as on Tinder or Adult FriendFinder so it can make things a bit easier for more normal guys.
Naturally, they have a free trial so you can check them out without risking anything. If you are a younger guy looking for some fun with a more mature woman, this is a great option.
Our Favorite San Bernardino Hookup Bars & Other Sites
Now that we have covered the best ways to meet people for hookups 24/7 through technology, lets look at the local hookup bars and other spots where hooking up is easiest. This is our list of the five best bars and a few other places that are going to be well worth your time.
San Bernardino’s best hookup bars & clubs
We are fortunate there are several good options around town for finding a quick hookup if you have some skills. If you are still working on that part, you might want to try a hookup app first before venturing out into the wild.
Below are our favorite hookup bars (not in order) for San Bernardino. These are all places where a lot of single people hang out and the alcohol is flowing. They are also open late enough that it’s easy to make a smooth transition from the bar back to your place (or theirs) with a quick Uber ride. These are places that you don’t want to show up too early to as things usually don’t get going till at least 9 or 10.
Some of these you may have already tried and some may be new. All of them are solid places for meeting other singles who are looking for some short-term fun. Give them a shot on a Friday or Saturday night if you want to have the best chances and don’t be afraid to have a drink or two while you are there to loosen up first!
Lesbians list Pink Cupid as their preferred San Bernardino hookup site
Unlike for men, there isn’t one single hookup app option in San Bernardino that gets all the attention. The closest thing there is at the moment is Pink Cupid. If you are a lesbian looking for some quick fun it is worth checking out.
From what we have seen ourselves, and heard from friends, this app is among the most popular apps out there for lesbians and is growing quickly in popularity. We will know more about them in a couple years, but they are worth taking a look at for sure.
Grindr is still the best hookup site for San Bernardino’s gay men
We are probably not telling you anything new here. If you are a local gay man there is a 99.9999% chance that you have heard of Grindr and a 99.999% chance you have already tried it out.
When it comes to the qualities we look for in a hookup app, Grindr nails them all. They have a huge user base and a wide variety of men using it, they have been around for a while, and they offer a free trial. There really isn’t much more to say than that!
There are some other smaller apps that are popping up to try to take Grindr’s crown but we are still a year or two away before they really get big enough to recommend.
The Meek House and other relaxed coffeeshops are surprisingly good places for a San Bernardino hookup
Coffeeshops might not be a traditional hookup spot like a bar or a club but you can definitely find success here. Many of them are open pretty late and are especially popular with single women in the evenings.
We have had a lot of success meeting women between 7 PM and 10 PM in coffee shops and quickly turning that first meeting into a mini-date. Basically, after starting a conversation you ask if they would like to get a quick bite to eat or a drink and head out together. You will be surprised how often one thing leads to another and you end up at your place or theirs that same night.
