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 first dates lead to second dates, 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.
THE BUZZ ABOUT HINGE
“Hinge’s CEO says a good dating app relies on vulnerability, not algorithms.” - Washington Post
"Hinge is the first dating app to actually measure real-world success" - TechCrunch
“A great option for those fed up with temporary love.” -TheNextWeb
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, set advanced preferences, or access Hinge Experts can upgrade to a Preferred Membership.

Ratings and Reviews
Hinge Changed My Life
Never thought I would say an app has changed my life, but Hinge has. I spent the past few years before using Hinge dating friends of friends (which can have terrible consequences if it doesn’t work out), people I met on Tinder (who were more often than not bad fits), or just not dating at all. In the years since my last long-term relationship, my love life has been an emotional roller coaster with some exciting, but short-lived highs and some lonely, confusing lows.
At a certain point, I began to feel like I didn’t have any control over my ability to connect with and date other people. Things didn’t change immediately when I started using Hinge and I’m not saying that every Hinge relationship is going to work out. (I actually dated someone I met on Hinge for a few months, but we ended up deciding it was a bad match.)
The thing that changed though is that I pretty quickly felt like I had that control over my dating life back. People who were obviously bad matches or potentially good matches became a lot easier to identify and, in the case of the potentially good matches, start a conversation with. I can happily say that I’m in a relationship with a wonderful guy now who Hinge introduced me to. I feel more confident in our relationship than in any other I’ve had in the past, but even if it doesn’t work out, I feel confident in myself and my ability to find someone great because of all the things Hinge empowers me to do. 💕
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.
Great app! Just be patient with matches. It will happen eventually.
I started using this app last summer. Met an great person and dated for 6 mo. Like other relationships the more you can learn the more you like or don’t. For me the latter. But I’m optimistic. Always am. Just got back on. Put up some great photos I had paid to take and got great responses from some hotties. LISTEN EVERYONE! ITS ALL ABOUT THE PHOTOS! This isn’t rocket science.
I like the fact that you only get 10 likes a day. That’s keeps life manageable and I have better things to do then be on this app all evening anyway. The late notifications are a little annoying but so what. They’ll get fixed.
I found that Tinder and Match have too much rifraf you need to filter way too much. That's a waste of my time. Bumble is also pretty good. So far Bumble hasn’t appealed to the mega masses. When it does it will be a waste of time like Tinder and Match. But for now Hinge doesn’t have mass appeal but use that to your advantage. It’s better to have less people and appeal to public less because these people will have higher quality ppl then on the apps used by the mass public. In an age of instant gratification, you actually need to go against the grain and delay your gratification a bit. The right person will show up at the right time. Be positive about it and it will happen.
