The app is currently in private beta, but if you are in the public eye and don’t want to feel embarrassed about being on a traditional dating site, this app may be perfect for you. This app is all about discretion, which will appeal to anyone who is looking for a no-strings attached relationship. The League is a new app, but in terms of quality apps, this is a great way to find hookups that aren’t sleazy.

    Hookin-Up (www.hookin-Up.com) is a combination of social media, speed dating, and personality profile, all wrapped up in a safe, game setting. Customers notice the displays (3-sided table displays or 2-sided cards), scan the code with their phones, and play for free. They create a profile of interests with just a few clicks, review other players’ profiles, and make anonymous offers to meet up. Players get to consider a few things about another person before meeting face-to-face. The structure of the game makes it easy to engage without awkwardness and to disengage gracefully if sparks don’t fly. It keeps things light, but leaves things open for opportunities.
