Cuddlr is the app for you.

It’s like Tinder, but for hugs only. The location-based service puts you in contact with like-minded cuddlers in your area to accommodate you both arranging some super cuddley cuddle times.

What’s more, there is a cuddle rating and spooning position preference listed so you’ll never be left with a crap cuddle.


The premise is simple. If you like the look of a cuddler, all you have to do is tap their photo and you will be directed toward them for some “closeness without pressure”.

You can’t chat to them because it might deter you from meeting, say the developers, who encourage users to report ‘inappropriate or awkward’ cuddlers.

The app is only available on iOS now, Android is coming soon. You lucky divils.
