It’s like Tinder without the lust. This is the perfect phone app for someone who loves hugs and is also comfortable with being completely creepy. The app is called Cuddlr and it’s designed to give people who yearn for human contact a safe, sex-free alternative.

Imagine if you’re laying in your bed and you think, “Man, it sure is cold in this bed of mine. I wish someone would come hog my covers and warm things up for me. Oh, and keep the hanky-panky stuff to themselves.” Well now you can have exactly that.

This Cuddlr app will help set you up with someone looking to just spoon and cuddle. Not ready for an encounter as strange as a cuddle? Well you can set up a meeting for a hug too.

“It is possible to report someone who cuddles inappropriately, and we encourage first-time pairs to do their cuddling in a public place.” - Cuddlr's creator, Charlie Williams/ independent.co.uk

Public cuddles are the least creepy. Everyone knows that and everyone can learn a lot from a good cuddle. Note to anyone who ever meets me: I prefer little spoon.
