It also says that if we both “favorite each other, we’ll be introduced by hinge via email.” The email goes on to give me a few tips to get the most out of the app, including using it every day, being myself, and letting more people know about Hinge. In order to join, you have to have at least one Facebook friend who is already using the app.
So if you don’t, you have to reach out to your single friends to encourage them to sign up with you (but then they would need to know someone on Hinge).
The app is easy to download and there is no real profile creation, including choosing photos and expressing your interests.
Hinge does all of that for you, based on what you say on your Facebook page.
Also, it doesn’t take into account your relationship status – I guess assuming if you join you are single.
My Facebook page states that I’m married, but I was able to join and be matched.
The app intends this to help you choose more wisely, and maybe help you give someone a chance who you might not have considered on other dating apps.
Because Hinge wants to avoid being lumped into the Tinder category, it does put restrictions on matches.
The Hinge website touts the fact that you don’t meet “randos” thanks to its Facebook friends-based approach.
And there’s full disclosure so you can’t cheat the system.
In fact, the app can boast a roughly 50% man-to-woman ratio, something unique in the online dating world where men seem to dominate.
Also, the average age range of Hinge users skew older – 23 to 36, and 99% are college-educated.
This is great for verifying you’re a real person and for cutting down on the time it takes to create a profile, but it takes away an element of creativity that is important in the online dating process.
