More than six million people live in Maryland and almost one-third of adults are single. Plus, there are still a few good options for singles to make friends and find hookups in Maryland. You just need to know where. And that's what brought you here.
We invested our time and money to search for the absolute best places to find hookups in Maryland and its major cities. You just need to wear your confidence and some nice clothes and try some of these places yourself.
Our Favorite Place to Find Hookups in Maryland
We already have a detailed guide on where to meet women in Baltimore make sure you check it. But, before we tackle each city specifically, let's share our absolute best place to find hookups in Maryland...
Shopping centers are great for meeting Maryland women during the day
Trying to approach a hot woman in a nightclub is a nightmare for the average dude. First off, she has all eyes focused on her and a bunch of guys offering her free drinks. Second, she's surrounded by her friends, which can make the guy's job even harder if he doesn't know how to handle groups of women.
This isn't the case in malls.
She's mostly alone, she has little or no makeup on, and she isn't followed by a bunch of thirsty dudes.
And you just need to introduce yourself and stay in the conversation for a couple of minutes. There's no losing when you approach a woman in a public place. You either win or learn until you become a conversation master. You just need to time your approach, act confident, and come up with something to say (nothing sleazy!).
AFF continues to be the best Maryland hookup app (try it free here)
There just isn’t an easier way to meet women looking for hookups than AFF (which also has a great free trial). With a state as large as Maryland you need to be on at least one hookup app if you want to get good results regardless of where you live (they work in the city as well as the country). We’ve tried and tested over 100 different options in our review of the best hookup apps and AFF has consistently been #1 for most guys.
What makes AFF so good is they are 100% focused on more casual relationships. Tinder used to be great for a lot of guys but now it’s pretty much just another relationship app. AFF still only attracts women that are looking for something without any attachments. With over 60 million active members there is a good chance it will work for you too. Check out their free trial and see for yourself.
Tinder works wonders if your profile is on point
When it comes to hookups, who hasn't used Tinder at least once? It might just be one of the most popular hookup apps in the world. But along with its popularity comes its biggest caveat: competition. Lots of guys are on Tinder and the hot ones usually get the most matches. After all, if a woman is browsing through a hundred guys a day, she'll only swipe right on the ones she finds most attractive, right?
One thing you can do about this is to make sure your profile is polished: great photos, a good bio, and a ton of texting skills. Matches come easy when women become interested in you based on your profile. So work on that first before you use Tinder to find hookups in Maryland.
Where to Find a Hookup in Columbia
I'm not going to lie, making friends and finding hookups in Columbia is a bit hard. Even though there are plenty of single adults in Maryland (28.2%) and the state's average age of the first marriage is fairly high (30.3 and 28.7 years for men and women respectively), many still complain about the shallow dating pool outside Baltimore. Still, we found a few spots where women hang out:
- Wings Sports Cafe - 8406 Washington Blvd
- Coreworks Fitness Pilates and Yoga in Columbia - 9160 Rumsey Rd
- The Mall in Columbia - 10300 Little Patuxent Pkwy

Where to Find a Hookup in Waldorf
Waldorf or Beantown is Maryland's fourth-largest city with close to 80,000 residents. Just to imagine how small Waldorf's community is, it's less than one-seventh of Baltimore's population.

In fact, Silver Spring is Maryland's second-best suburb for young professionals partially because of its fairly good nightlife and dating scene. It's also less than 20 minutes away from Washington DC which has a lot of perks if you own a car or use dating apps.

Where to Find a Hookup in Frederick
Frederick is on the Virginia side of Maryland as opposed to the Washington DC side. It's quite a bit more isolated than the other cities on our list, which makes finding hookups more challenging. On the bright side, Hood College is a major party school in Maryland. So if you're looking for a college fling, nearby bars are perfect. But if you're not into the college party scene, here's where you can go:
