HINGE, DESIGNED TO BE DELETED
Hinge is the dating app for people who want to get off dating apps. And it’s working. Currently, 3 out of 4 times Hinge members want to go on a second date, we’re the #1 mobile-first dating app mentioned in the New York Times wedding section, and we’re the fastest growing dating app in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.
HOW WE GET YOU OFF HINGE
In today’s digital world, singles are so busy matching that they’re not actually connecting, in person, where it counts. Hinge is on a mission to change that. So we built an app that’s designed to be deleted.
* We quickly learn your type. You’ll only be introduced to the best people for you.
* We give you a sense of someone’s personality. You’ll get to know potential dates through their unique answers to prompts, and personal information like religion, height, and politics.
* We make it easy to start a conversation. Every match begins by someone liking or commenting on a specific part of your profile.
* We ask how your dates are going. After exchanging phone numbers with a Match, we’ll follow up to hear how your date went so we can make better recommendations in the future.
The app is free to use. Members looking to see who likes them or to set advanced preferences can upgrade to a Preferred Membership.

Ratings and Reviews
Better than some
This app is definitely better than others out there if you’re looking for a real connection rather than a one nighter (although that doesn’t stop the one nighters/sexters from trying their luck anyway)
Negative about this (and probably all the others to be fair) is that they kinda trick you in the beginning with lots of good looking people who match with you but never talk, I’ve realised these are more than likely bots/fake profiles created to make the app look more desirable.
Also the key is patience with this one, my matches are few and far between compared to tinder or bumble where I’m matching about 80% of the time, perhaps this is because they don’t show your profile to everyone at once or maybe people are just less active on here. You also can’t see everyone who’s liked you at once, you have to go though them one by one and decide if you like them or not then you must use one of your limited likes to match with them.
Conclusion, it’s a slow burner but still better than other apps and filters out Some of the “can’t be bothered, just want to sexters”
Highly recommended 🥰
So… I first ever started online dating in 2015 and was on and off some of the main apps for several years (Bumble, Happn and Tinder). Overall it wasn’t a smooth journey and finding a true match wasn’t easy to come by. After some time away from online dating and when I felt ready, I decided to try Hinge at the very start of 2021 and instantly liked the layout, the way you can create your profile and add a little quirkiness to it. I was quite picky who I got chatting to because I wanted to find someone who felt right for me and me for them. I only spoke to a few people on Hinge, but they appeared to be more genuine compared to people I had spoken to (and met) on other dating apps in the past. By spring of 2021 I had deleted my Hinge account because I met someone very special on there who is now my boyfriend. We’ve known each other over a year, we are extremely happy and moved in together at the start of 2022. I recommend this dating app to someone who is looking for a serious relationship but I can understand that not everyone’s experience of using Hinge has been a positive one. Dating in general isn’t black and white, even more so during the pandemic began. Lastly, I have never left a review for dating apps before and have been in longterm relationships that began from meeting people online, but I found this particular app to be the most positive dating experience and enjoyed using the app itself. Happy dating 💕
Dating app with a sense of humour
Alright, admittedly I've only had the app for a few days and not yet been on a date (who needs love, anyway? 🙄), but the layout of the profiles is such that you have to answer three (out of possibly 60, or something) questions, and honestly? Worth downloading just for people's answers. I'm having such a blast giggling at everyone's answers that I'm just scrolling through profiles to have myself a good time totally forgetting the whole point I downloaded it.
Was upgraded to a 30 day free preferred account where you can add in 'deal breakers' like height/age/ethnicity/location restrictions, or just simply highlight preferences so you'll see more of the profiles that match, otherwise you're stuck with scrolling through totally random people near you - can definitely see the benefit to the paid version, but currently speaking to someone I matched with before the preferred account became active, so may never have been needed in the first place. So far so good, and it's nice not having to compress your own complex self into a paragraph or 2 - this is much more like dating before technology got involved!
