Some of the best reviews are associated with the site's free app (which does include in-app purchase options), Cupid Dating.
Cupid Dating is a local matchmaker that allows instant chatting.
Once you have an account, Stranger Meetup will also keep track of your recent chat partners, so even if you forget to add a friend as you're leaving the conversation, you can still contact the person again later.
Scam Adviser gave this site a 93 percent trust score, and AVGThreat Labs marked it as safe with regards to scams, phishing or viruses, but of course, always exercise caution when chatting with complete strangers.
The chat room is one of the slower ones, with few members present at any one time, but that could be the perfect situation for striking up a meaningful conversation with someone new.
The challenge could be running across the right person at the right time since the chat room option tends to be quieter than one might expect on a site with so many users.
This site shouldn't be confused with the matchmaking site, Ok Cupid.
There's no logging in or registration required for chats like this, and a chat is a single click away once you're on the main page. The idea behind this site is to be able to remain anonymous and have a judgment-free conversation with a stranger.
The site notes that because there is no software to download, it's perfect for those who are on older computers that may not run as quickly. However, if you want to set up a profile, you can give yourself a name other than "Stranger," see others' screen names and even request a photo of someone you meet.
