Hinge is the dating app for people who want to get off of dating apps. With profiles that show your personality through text, photos, video, and voice, you have unique conversations that lead to great dates. And it’s working. Currently, people on Hinge go on a date every three seconds. Additionally, in 2022, we were the fastest-growing dating app in the US, UK, and Canada.

When it comes to online dating, people 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. Here’s how:

* 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, as well as information like religion, height, politics, dating intentions, relationship type, and much more.

* We make it easy to start a conversation. Every match begins by someone liking or commenting on a specific part of your profile.

* We want you to feel confident about meeting people in person. Selfie Verification makes it easier for daters on Hinge to ensure that they are who they say they are.

* 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 everyone who likes them or send unlimited likes can upgrade to Hinge+. To access additional features, including enhanced recommendations and priority likes, we offer HingeX.

Daunted by having to fill out a dating app profile? Hinge helps you showcase your best self with conversation prompts (think “Two truths and a lie” or “Let’s debate this topic”) that create fun and flirty ways to engage.

Absolutely amazing

When I searched for an app that was simple to use and highly rated, Hinge is the one that came up that intrigued me. I got on it and I liked the customization it had to one’s profile to be as transparent as possible. Using the actual app is very easy too and it got me to go on dates with 2 people. The first was alright at first, then I saw that our conversations turned very sour as she talked about her trauma with her family the entire time. Not a good first look, so we eventually unmatched. I left hinge and after a month I got back on it just to see. There in my likes, I found my current boyfriend.

We chatted the first day I returned his like with a ‘hi’ and by the next day, we began chatting on WhatsApp. After 5 days of talking, we met up and we hit it off insanely well. We’re so similar in the core aspects and have enough differences where we’re always learning about each other. After about 2-3 weeks, we began officially dating (and deleted hinge off our phones!) and now it’s been 7 months. I genuinely want to marry this man and he does too. Hinge helped me find my soulmate that was more near me than I expected. One I would have never met on my own, out and about, as neither of us like going out as much. I am truly grateful for this app as it has given me the best relationship I have ever been on. Genuinely give it a try and DON’T GIVE UP. You may find your soulmate too

Pretty sure I met The One on here

This is, by far, the class of all the available dating apps. That doesn’t mean it’s going to provide a fairy tail opportunity, or even a fun one, but the way profiles are designed and integrated into the brief response sections makes this a much better option than Tinder, and even Bumble.

As others have mentioned in their reviews, squelching the ability to like photos without leaving a substantive comment should be the default. That’s simply too much like Tinder/Facebook and doesn’t really provide anything meaningful for the app. It definitely promotes the type of “drive-by” behavior that’s a scourge on Tinder. Leaving a comment requires forethought about what to say, what kind of tone you want to convey, and engaging with another user’s profile. You’re also much more likely to respond to folks who leave commentary, even if you don’t plan on going on a date, and that’s a very healthy approach compared to other apps.

As always, your mileage may vary. If you live in a small place you’re likely going to need to increase the radius, or maybe even take a step toward looking to move somewhere bigger in the future. There is still ghosting, likely related to the feature I mentioned above, but that’s just part of the process. For me, I was fortunate enough to find someone after a few months on Hinge that had me deleting the whole panoply of apps.
