With such a busy lifestyle, finding a hookup in Massachusetts can be a bit difficult. Make no mistake, the Bay State has its fair share of singles (7.1 million residents and almost one-third of its adults are singles), but the way our visual, Instagram generation operates requires a lot of research to find the perfect partner.
To me, it's all about how and where: how to be the best version of yourself and where to look for attractive women in Massachusetts, and anywhere in the world. We already covered the "how" question in numerous posts. And as for "where" to find hookups in Massachusetts, we dug as deep as we could to search the state for the best possible places to meet attractive women.
We've already covered where you can find hookups in Boston. So here's our guide on where to meet women in five of the biggest cities in Massachusetts: Worcester, Springfield, Cambridge, Lowell, and Brockton.
Our Favorite Places to Find Hookups in Massachusetts
Before we start, let's first check one more place that we think is going to be the absolute go-to place for finding hookups in Massachusetts, and it's...
Shopping centers: the hangout of some of the hottest women in Massachusetts
Attracting beautiful women is a numbers game. And any public place, like cafes, bars, and - as in this example - a busy shopping center will be your playground.
Massachusetts, like all big states, has its fair share of malls and retail stores. Natick Mall, Burlington Mall and The Shops at Chestnut Hill are just a few examples. Almost every major city has one giant center where everyone shops, especially unprepared attractive women who don't expect you to have the guts to approach them in broad daylight, and who'd also willingly give you their number if you stay relaxed and unfazed.
You might've expected me to list a cool bar or nightclub here, but I do believe in the power of the cold approach. You just need to stick to it for a while. The least it will do to you - which is HUGE - is make you immune to rejection.
AFF continues to be the best Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts 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.
If you're young and hot, Tinder works wonders
Tinder remains one of the biggest dating apps out there. While it used to be popular for finding quick and easy hookups (it still kind of is), it has recently become more of an app for finding relationships. Don't get me wrong, though, lots of people are still on Tinder to hook up, so it's still worth a shot.
One thing you need to keep in mind about Tinder is that it's very looks-based. Users want to swipe right on only the hottest potential matches. So if your photos aren't up to par, better start taking new photos for your Tinder profile. While you don't need to be drop-dead gorgeous to find hookups on Tinder, it still helps to have an appealing profile. So make sure you work on that!
Where to find a Hookup in Worcester
Worcester, or the Heart of the Commonwealth, is Massachusetts' second largest city next to Boston with almost 200,000 residents. The first thing you'll notice about Worcester is that it has many schools. To a single guy, this means lots of young, fun-loving singles to date from. There isn't much to do in Worcester during the night other than checking their one decent nightclub and a handful of cool sports bars. That doesn't mean they're not teeming with women looking to hook up on the right evenings.

- Free Play Bar Arcade - 25 Union St
- Michael's Cigar Bar - 1 Exchange St
- Whiskey On Water - 97 Water St
- Crunch Fitness - 40 Millbrook St/877 Grafton St
Where to Find a Hookup in Springfield
Hoop City is the third-largest city in Massachusetts. Unlike Worcester, it has a good nightlife with lots of things to do during the night. The city has a life of its own, despite being more than an hour away from Boston, mainly because of its educational importance.
The city is dubbed, "the knowledge corridor" because of the many schools and institutions it has that serve over 50k young singles. This translates into more than 100 cool bars and nightclubs serving a relatively small range of singles which, for a single like you, means a lot of dating opportunities up for grabs.

- The Zone - 80 Worthington St

- Esporta Fitness - 2501 Wabash Ave

Where to Find a Hookup in Cambridge
Cambridge is the state's third-largest city and home of the great, Harvard University. The city has more than 500 bars, restaurants, and cafes with solid menus and great seatings that serve a wide range of uni singles and a wide range of tastes.
Also, consider getting a car if you plan to stay in Cambridge for a while. Being located across from Boston (both sandwiching Charles River), you can also enjoy the big city vibes with an 18-minute ride. The added perk is expanding your Tinder search as well.

Where to Find a Hookup in Lowell
Lowell or The Mill City is the fourth city on our list. With close to 100k residents, it's the state's fourth-largest city which is almost 30 minutes from Boston. It's one of the most diverse cities in Massachusetts and its festivals attract thousands of tourists all year long from all parts of the states. There are a few cool places here that the ladies like - and so will you - but what really stands out is the food selection.
There are so many options here that will satisfy your appetite, and even though, they are quite tasty, they won't cost much compared to what you can get in Cambridge or downtown Boston.

- Showcase Cinema de Lux Lowell - 32 Reiss Ave

Where to Find a Hookup in Brockton
If you've ever heard of Rocky Marciano, the hardest hitter in boxing history, he was from Brockton, and one of the reasons it was dubbed The City of Champions. Located south of Boston, Brockton is Massachusetts' fifth-largest city and one of the best places to live in the country.
Brockton is also quite diverse, and the school system here is good enough to attract thousands of students and families on a yearly basis. The city's nightlife isn't that exciting, but some say the city will be improving a lot over the next five years, so let's see.
