True love isn’t for everyone, which is why we have put together our FuckNow.com review. The internet is overrun with dating and hookup sites catering to increasingly more specific populations. There are sites for meeting women who are curvy, married, or decades older; whatever you’re into. These sites help you skip the hassle of meeting a woman at a bar, work, or somewhere else. You browse the profiles and send a message. Simple, right?
Well, not to sound like your mother, but not everyone on the internet is your friend. There are plenty of terrible sites out there. Far too many are simply scams using fake profiles, fake messages, and fake photos. These sites want your money and personal information, in return for little else.
You need to be careful with where you spend your time and that’s where we come in. This is our process for reviewing FuckNow:
It pays to research dating sites before you sign up. And that’s exactly why we’re here. We review the hookup sites that actually work to let you know which sites are legit, and which you’d be better off avoiding. In this FuckNow review, we’ll give you the lowdown on a site that promises authentic, no-hassle hookups. Could it really be so easy?
Fewer and fewer people are getting into committed relationships these days, and fewer people are settling down into marriage than ever before. Time Magazine estimated that 25% of Millennials will never marry. That is a very different trend from what America saw in the 1950s.
Times are changing, and with them, how people live their lives. We’re freer than ever before to have multiple partners or no romantic partners at all. A fling or one-night stand is no longer something to be ashamed of, the walk of shame a relic of the past.
FuckNow.com is one tool of many but how well does it work compared to the most reliable option we’ve found for finding casual relationships AFF?
Our team rates each site objectively based on many hours of independent research, the features each site offers, and how it compares with other sites. The ratings are the opinion of our editors and their extensive experience.

We went into our review of Fuck Now with an open mind hoping to find another great site that could compete with the results we’ve seen with AFF. Unfortunately, it became clear very quickly that wasn’t to be the case.
There was a lot we didn’t like about the site but the main issues we had were:
We don’t want to be mean but the women we found on this site were not what we were looking for. At all.
From what we could tell there were two types of profiles: suspiciously good looking and very unattractive. There really wasn’t a lot of middle ground. We’ve found much more attractive women on other sites that are easier to meet.
As soon as we signed up we started getting fake notifications that people wanted to see our pictures or wanted to chat. That just doesn’t happen on a legit site if your profile is blank.
Any time you start getting messages before there is anything for women to read you know they are automated. Legit sites don’t have to use automated messages to get you to signup or pay for a full membership.
Ultimately, there are way better options for you if you actually want to meet up with women offline. There is no reason at all that you should spend any time on Fuck Now in our experience. Full details below of what we found.
With a name like FuckNow, subtly is obviously not going to be a priority. Upon arriving at FuckNow.com, I was greeted by a strawberry blonde hottie pulling at her shirt as if she were ready to disrobe. The site had a sleek, yellow and silver logo at the top of the page, and some tantalizing text: “Warning: you may find pics of someone you may know.”
The landing page photo was a bit low-res, but overall, it conveyed exactly what the website was all about: no-strings-attached sex. I created my account.
The next page aimed to impress. It said in large text at the top that they were “Committed to Authenticity.” The page went on to say, “We don’t create fake accounts,” and that “We never sell your info to third-parties” and “never spam you.” Those are the kinds of assurances I expect from a dating site.
Most hookup sites are far from authentic and will use every underhanded internet trick to get hold of their users’ money. That FuckNow acknowledged this reality encouraged me, but I would only know if they were being honest once I had seen the full site.
While the name gets right to the point, FuckNow just doesn’t deliver for guys. Instead, you should be spending your time with one of the few legit hookup apps that actually deliver, AFF.
After trying out every single hookup app with downloading there are a few key things that really stick out with AFF:
They have over 60 million members on a site that are totally focused on finding people to hook up with. By comparison, Tinder has around 50 million members and a huge number of women are either looking for normal dates or just want attention from guys. Fucknow.com has so few members it isn’t even worth mentioning in the same conversation.
AFF is also much more beneficial for more normal guys because women don’t decide on a guy 100% because of his first headshot. The profiles are much more expansive and allow a guy to demonstrate all of his best attributes which really helps.
We could talk about AFF for hours but you are better of just checking out their free trial and seeing for yourself.
After that promising start, my arrival at the main page turned into an immediate letdown. The general layout and style of the site looked less than professional. There was an overwhelming deluge of menu options, pictures and notifications. It felt like the type of site that comes up in a popup window.
Furthering that impression, most of the featured profile pictures on the site’s main page were decidedly explicit. Again, I know what kind of site I’m looking at, and I’m not bothered by a healthy dose of nudity, but these shots were hardcore. As in, they looked like rejects from a bad porno shoot.
Visitors come to FuckNow.com for hookups, so the material is bound to be seductive. But when a site bombards me with adult content, I’m immediately suspicious. Far too often, these fully nude profile photos have been stolen from other sites to create fake profiles.
Besides, if the point is to help you meet women in real life, that directness will likely be a deterrent. There is something to be said for the art of teasing.
Already leery of what FuckNow had to offer, I started receiving a flood of messages from random, beautiful women. These messages popped up in little boxes on the bottom of my screen, but I couldn’t read any of them. The boxes informed me, “Only premium members can contact” those women. It also warned me that the messages would soon expire. I was getting the hard sale.
Whether you’re online or in the real world, initiating conversations with beautiful women is rarely easy. You can send a clever or respectful message and even then it will likely be ignored. It can take days to make contact, and you may never get a woman to message you first.
The fact that I received five messages within five minutes of logging on to FuckNow.com, when I didn’t even have a profile picture, was ridiculous. Legitimate dating sites don’t work that way.
If that wasn’t all shady enough, FuckNow.com was covered with tons of third-party links. On their homepage, they had links to “Premium Live Cams” and “Live Girls”. I followed the first of the links and arrived at a totally different site named “Cam Soda”. This was not a professional looking site at all. I fled that page immediately.
Legit dating sites aren’t interested in sending you to other sites. That’s a terrible business model. If a site isn’t invested in helping you meet a real person in the real world, it has no business even pretending to be a dating site. Seeing all of these external links on FuckNow was a big turn off.
FuckNow.com is only free in the most technical of senses. As I mentioned above, I wasn’t even able to read the messages that I was getting from these women without a “premium” account. I reviewed the premium account options and found them all to be pretty expensive.
Unless you’re satisfied sitting around, looking at thumbnail profile pictures and getting messages that you can’t even view, you’re going to have to pay.
Plenty of legit dating sites charge money for their services. That’s not unreasonable. But these sites don’t claim to be free and then hit you with a surprise charge for every basic function. A good site lets you know the fees up front. FuckNow.com was failing to deliver on their original promise: authenticity.
As discussed above, FuckNow comes out of the gate promising that they don’t use fake profiles. Even on their Terms and Conditions page, they say, “No Service Created Profiles.” Yet, given everything I had seen in my perusal, from the explicit profile pictures to the unreadable messages, I had serious doubts. Something wasn’t right with this site.
My doubts led me to a telling paragraph in the fine print:
“The Site may cause pop-ups to display as a system notification on your screen while you are viewing the Site. These system notifications may or may not indicate they have been initiated by the Site and may provide you with limited information about other members of the Site and/or such member’s activity on the Site.”
So, while FuckNow may not have “service created profiles,” they can send messages from profiles, without those users’ permission. That’s pushing up pretty close to the boundary of fake.
Then I found this interesting clause in the site’s fine print: “When you create a profile with Fucknow.com, your profile will be shared with other dating and ‘hook-up’ websites which contain members of the Site.”
Why is FuckNow.com sharing my profile with other sites? Obviously, they were working with a network of so-called “dating” sites to create the illusion that they had a lot of active members. Their promises meant nothing.
FuckNow.com may be able to technically claim they don’t create accounts, but they still use pretty much every other low-down trick in the book. The site sends fake messages, shares your profile information with other sites and third-parties, and they don’t allow even the most basic of website functionality without a paid membership.
If there’s anything positive I can say about this site, it’s that they help exemplify all the things I don’t want to experience on a dating or hookup site. There are so many better hookup apps and sites online, so don’t waste your time or money on FuckNow.com.
