Despite what Reddit may tell you, finding good hookups in Tennessee isn't a matter of pure luck. Many surveys and studies that monitor the singles' life across the country put Tennessee in the upper half of the best places for singles to live.
Population-wise, it's the 16th biggest state (almost 7 million residents), and it has one of the highest rates of single-person households in the country (28.7%). Sure, it's not California, New York or Texas, but you can still hook up with plenty of Tennessee singles with some effort. After all, even if these Southern ladies seem demure and sweet, many of them are also looking for casual fun.
In the past, we've covered the best places to find hookups in Nashville and hookups in Memphis. So in this list, we'll cover the hookup hotspots in other big cities in the state.
Our Favorite Place to Find Hookups in Tennessee
If you're busy and/or don't want to read a lengthy dating guide just to figure out where to go to meet singles, don't worry. We got you covered. Before revealing Tennessee's hidden gems, we decided to kick this post off with the best spot in Tennessee where we know for sure that singles hang out.
Malls are great for meeting cute Tennessee girls
Shopping is what people do when they feel lonely and don't know where to go. It's like a quick fix that girls use to kill time, feel better, and look better. On the other hand, a mall, for a man who wants to find hookups in Tennessee or anywhere, is a real babe magnet.
Unlike in bars, women are less guarded in malls. They don't expect to be approached by guys - at least not as much as in crowded bars - and they are less cockier and much friendlier towards strange guys approaching them. You just need to demonstrate desirable traits like confident body language to get their attention. And this comes from approaching a lot of women without caring about getting rejected.
Tennessee has a few good malls worth visiting. RiverGate Mall in Goodlettsville and Stones River Town Centre in Murfreesboro are just some of the best ones to check out. You can also check out some of the malls near your city. Three months from now you'll be thanking me for the tip, and thanking yourself for the effort.
AFF continues to be the best Tennessee 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 Tennessee 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’s worth a shot if you’re good-looking
If you're single, there's no way you haven't heard of Tinder. More and more women rely on online dating to find hookups, and Tinder is often their first option. With so many women in Tennessee using Tinder, you're sure to meet at least one person who's down for a night of fun.
Just keep in mind that Tinder is very looks-oriented. You'll do well on the app if you have at least 4 great photos. A bio helps, too. However, since most women tend to swipe right on guys who are in the top 10% of looks, the competition is fierce. Still, Tinder is worth a shot since there are so many people using the app.
