When it comes to hooking up, these Bakersfield hookup hotspots gave locals and tourists the most success this past year. Obviously, being able to meet someone all day, every day is perfect.

Between the beer gardens and the arcade, the bowling and the billiards, the ropes course and laser tag, the karaoke and the full bar, BLVD has it all. You are guaranteed to have fun. With so much to do, BLVD is one of our city's best hookup bars.
This is the type of place to hit up by yourself and ask someone to join you in a game of pool or crash a group laser tag game. If you’re not up for anything physical, settle in for some karaoke or watch the game. No matter what your mood, BLVD likely has something for you. Come by after 9 p.m. when it becomes an over-21 hotspot where you can get laid in Bakersfield.
You joined Tinder and found that you didn’t get much attention. Or maybe the women were flirting with you but weren’t interested in hooking up. Adult FriendFinder is a better alternative. It’s geared more towards the more average-looking person (most of us), rather than the model types on Tinder. And it remains one of the only options that specifically helps you hook up rather than date.
If you haven’t checked out Adult FriendFinder it is definitely worth the 5-10 minutes it takes to get up and running. We have tried out a LOT of different online options and this is the one that we have seen give guys the best results time and time again. When you have tens of millions of users who are all looking for some fun in the bedroom you are going to get a lot of happy people.
Adult FriendFinder is also geared towards a slightly older crowd. While Tinder is best for those aged 18-28, AFF works better for those of us who are over 30. Of course, younger folks also find hookups on AFF, but most people would choose AFF if they had to choose just one platform. This ability to match youngsters, older singles, model types and average Joes and Janes make AFF one of the best Bakersfield hookup options.
Adult FriendFinder has also consistently made our list of the best hookup options online. They have been around for more than a decade and have over 90 million active users. If this isn’t motivation enough to try AFF, we don’t know what is!

Yes, Tinder is one of the most popular dating platforms out there. No surprise there because it really works! However, it has a few drawbacks. First of all, attractive girls on Tinder get tons of matches. So even if she swiped right on you, you better have a great opening message or she’ll unmatch you!
Secondly, the swiping process doesn’t help average-looking guys at all. When a girls has to decide whether she’ll swipe left or right on you, she almost exclusively sees your profile pic, which has to be impressive if you want her to swipe right. Even if you’re incredibly hot, your photos better reflect that! Seems like a lot of work, for sure. But Tinder is still popular, and it’s still worth a shot since it’s free.
