This Doublelist review reveals whether this sexy version of Craigslist is any good for finding dates, hookups or casual relationships. It’s a simple website, which allows you to post adverts just like Craigslist. However, these adverts should be centered around meeting singles in your local area. It’s free to use, so there’s nothing to lose.
Still, in this review, I will reveal how easy it is to find someone great to hook up with. Read on to learn exactly what to expect when you create an account at Doublelist.com.
Read on to discover how easy this website is to use, how many women responded to us and how interested they were in meeting up.
Let’s begin this Doublelist review with a basic summary of my experience using the website. Below, I have rated Doublelist out of 10 for the most important aspects of an online dating website.
To create some additional context, these ratings are compared to AFF, which we rate as one of the very best online websites for arranging spontaneous hook-ups, no matter what part of the world you’re in.

There are a lot of improvements that can be made to this website. Honestly, there are a lot of traditional online dating websites that are more effective for finding a partner. However, it’s not as hopelessly terrible as it looks! I guess that’s why they say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. We wouldn’t recommend that guys use this first but it isn’t awful.
Here are the most important things you need to know about Doublelist.com:
The main dashboard shows you a range of categories based on your gender and who you’re looking for. They’re split into “Connect Now” and “Let’s date.”
The Let’s Date category only had 20 posts. They were all from women around the Columbus area, but there was no indication as to when they were posted. These adverts could potentially be several years old.
If I had to guess, I’d say these were all legitimate adverts from real people. My main reason for this prediction is that some of the messages were either too detailed or too unappealing to be fake. I messaged all of them.
The Connect Now category had a lot more messages, mostly also from women seeking dates. These messages were a lot more forward. Honestly, they look a lot more spammy and fake. I replied to 30 of these adverts.
There is no option to create a profile on Doublelist, so you’ll need to make sure your message contains everything you want the other person to know about you. If you want them to see a picture of you, you’ll have to attach it in your message.
Your message will land in their email inbox, and they’ll receive your email address when this happens. This is potentially a good thing. It means they’re likely to see your message, even if they haven’t logged into Doublelist in months.
However, you should make sure you’re using an email address that you’re happy for Doublelist members to be able to access.
Within 24 hours of sending my replies to 50 Doublelist adverts, I received two responses.
I went on to ask for pictures and/or alternative contact details from both of them – and one older larger woman got straight back to me with a series of nudes. I sent an email attempting to arrange a meet-up, but have yet to receive a response.
There’s no reason to persevere with DoubleList. There are better websites out there. If you’re looking for a quick and easy hookup, there’s nothing better than AFF.
AFF website launched in the early 2000s. But, unlike DoubleList, it’s not designed that way. Also, unlike Doublelist, it has a huge active user base of horny women looking for casual sex.
You should be able to find a suitable partner with ease. Plus, it shouldn’t be too much of a hassle to meet up. Most AFF members are as keen to get down to business as you are.
Best of all, it’s currently running a free trial. So, what are you waiting for? Stay away from DoubleList and give AFF a spin now!
Below are the main advantages and disadvantages of using DoubleList.
There are no profiles on DoubleList. Below are some of the messages I received with pictures attached. There were mostly adverts from members from age 30-50.
There are no images apart from those attached to adverts. It’s literally just text and links. Its design mirrors Craigslist, but it’s a lot worse.
There are a few text ads for dodgy porn websites at the top of the category pages.
The URL is www.doublelist.com.
Click “Login here” on the home page. On the next page, enter your email address and password.
There is no search option on Doublelist. You’ll need to find adverts by searching through the categories manually.
There’s a box at the bottom of each advert. Type your message then click the “Send message” button below it.

Click Settings in the main navigation, then on the next page, click “Deactivate Account.”
When you deactivate your account, all your adverts will be deleted. You won’t be able to make a new account with the same email address in the future.
It’s completely free to use.
I received two emails, including one with pictures. This suggests it’s a legitimate website.
This is a free website, and I didn’t come across any obvious scams on the website. As always though, you should keep your wits about you.
