Hinge: Dating & Relationships

Hinge: Dating & Relationships [Lifestyle] App Description & Overview

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.

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.

- 3 improvements to help my dating sanity

1) A “close the flood gates” feature. The problem: 65 guys like my profile in the same week. If I respond to all my matches in real time, I’m tied up in 30 convos and a slave to my phone. If I only talk to a few dudes at a time, I can’t get back to some people for 4-6 weeks. And by then they’re tied up in other convos, deleted the app, in their work busy season, whatever. It’s not conducive to convos and dates. I’d suggest the option to take my profile “off the grid” while I handle a backed up queue of potential matches. Then I can be fully present for the next batch o’ humans, at the very same time they’re also fully present. 2) Upholding your member principles. When someone makes a profile, ask if they’re looking for a relationship before they can move forward. Your brand promise is “the relationship app” - yet I still have to ask every single prospect if they’re only looking for a hook up, and many of them are. Oust them, please. (I speculate those aren’t your paying members anyway, right?) 3) Make premium $9.99 again - or at least put it on sale here and there for active users. It’s a price I’m willing to pay to avoid the annoying lack of filters in the basic version (removing the height filter from basic was low key devastating, thanks for that.) You guys certainly know how expensive dating is, don’t give us single folk another price hurdle! Please? 🙏🏼

- By far the best dating app out there

This app is one of the best dating apps out there! With most other dating apps there is a multitude of fake profiles and scammers that you match with, on hinge that’s not the case! The difference between Hinge and most other apps is that it’s built for people looking for more than just a hookup, it’s a classier dating app. Compared to other apps you get limited likes (without paying ofc) but in all honesty it’s not a bad thing. It makes you more selective and it really calms you down so you don’t isolate yourself from the people around you to matchmake on an app for hours at a time. Also if you run out of likes and you see a profile you really like you can always send the profile to yourself by sharing it, or the profiles will rotate but you might not be able to see them again for a bit. I didn’t get a hit on my profile on the first day using Hinge but the next day I got three and I’m currently talking a lot to one of them. And guys, women will hit you up on this app too, other reviews are misleading. The woman I’m talking to actually commented and liked me. Another thing about this app: it’s easy to use and it really focuses more on getting to know a person by its mixer questions on your profile. This app also looks clean and seamless, it’s by far one of the best dating apps on the App Store! Hopefully I won’t have to use it again but if I ever need to use a dating app again, Hinge is most definitely my number one choice.

- 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 & Effective Service

I have enjoyed using Hinge especially because of the way it structured a profile to be succinct yet still informative enough. The Hinge application development team did a really good job in striking the balance between the two. The one suggestion I would make is just add an element to the profile that allows the man/woman to indicate the type of relationship they are looking for (friends, short-term relationship/dating, or a long-term relationship). Especially for men, it helps us to know the degree of relationship that a woman is looking for before we devote time and energy to communicating with and pursuing them. I have encountered a couple woman now that weren’t really looking for a dating relationship at all, more just friendship. I did not find this out until conversing with either of them at some length and drilling to the bottom of it. With each of them, part of me thought, “Why is she even on a dating app/site when she has no real intention of dating anyone?”. I know Hinge is a more casual dating service, but yet I wish this information would have been more upfront. Even so, both women have still become good friends and I was still encouraged to meet both of them given the higher quality of person they each are. It’s just better to be as honest and upfront as possible from the beginning and allow for this as much as possible.

- Most Compatible? I Don’t Think So

Hinge is, all in all, a good app. It has far fewer bugs and glitches than Tinder. It also has a clean and clever design — removing user bios in favor of questions gives you a better insight into who might be a good match — that makes the app, unlike Tinder or Bumble, fun to use. The process of swiping on someone’s profile like in most dating apps is substituted with a unique way of matching with someone on Hinge — you either press ‘X’ to move on to the next person or send a like on something featured in the person’s profile — and it forces you to put more thought into whose profile you might pass on and whose profile you might “like”. Hinge’s biggest problem seems to be its “Most Compatible” feature. Hinge will occasionally send you the profile of someone that their algorithm believes you will be very compatible with. The “Most Compatible” feature has suggested about 8 or 9 different profiles to me, but each time this has happened, I have been very confused. The profiles of the people the algorithm suggested have always been people that don’t share my interests or aren’t the type of person I am interested in. Hinge’s tagline is “designed to be deleted” and I sincerely believe that Hinge wants that experience for its users. But if Hinge’s algorithm can’t even make a good attempt at finding someone that I might be compatible with, the app will always be installed and I will still be searching for someone I truly like.

- Best app out there, still can’t get a date

To be fair, I’m not really sure what I’d change. This is probably the best dating app on the market if you have a specific type. I was able to use the filters to find a quality pool of people I would have loved to date. The profile customization is also one of the best out there, you get a good sense of the person’s personality as well as conversation starter prompts that they customize themselves to fit what passions/interests they have. Obviously the fatal flaw here, as a guy, is the polar opposite of the common complaint that women have about this app. They get so many messages from dudes that they can’t sort through them, whereas I got maybe five responses back out of the two or three hundred messages I’ve sent out this past year, and literally not a single message ever sent my way. Either I’m ugly/off-putting, which I’m not ruling out, or this app needs to fix this imbalance somehow. What is the point of being able to curate the perfect pool of dates if no one ever responds to their messages? My luck wasn’t any better with Tinder but at least you could quantify who found you attractive and that was a nice self esteem boost.

- Great foundation, needs work

So to begin this review I want to point out that Hinge had the generosity of providing me with a 30 day preferred membership, probably as a welcome to the app. Although they in no way made me write a review, I still feel that doing so is fair to reciprocate their generosity. Like others users have mentioned, I’m somewhat missing the value in paying for a preferred membership, because it only works if others have it, in my case women. Since you can only like a few people at a time and review your queue of matches in a limited manner as a free user, if you get a lot of hits on your profile you’re not going to contact them for a while. That being said, if a preferred member had priority in other’s match queue, it would add much more value. Additionally, the app should work towards making sure women actually respond to you once you’ve made contact, because it’s another big issue. Finally, the number of people who were actually similar in my personality and in my league was dwindled so quickly that now it just feeds me whatever profiles it has lying around, and not even a week into the app I’m out of matchable women. As it stands right now, I certainly wouldn’t spend any money on this experience, but given work it could be a truly revolutionary app as it claims. Since I’m a young guy in a big market I would love to continue providing my feedback and working to improve the app if the developers are interested.

- 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.

- Met my match

I’ve tried all of the dating apps, no joke. I’ve gone out on good dates, bad ones, hookups, flings, you name it. But nothing stuck. One day my roommate told me to download hinge because she found it and on other dating apps we both had we’d tend to match with the same people frequently. I downloaded it with no expectations and honestly no real hopes. A couple weeks of harmless flirting later, I get a message from a guy. Nothing new, nothing surprising but I have an interesting feeling about this one. The conversation is good and he seems genuine but I’m dating around, getting a little serious with someone else so he doesn’t get priority but I don’t want to let go either. The other thing ends and now this guy has my full attention, he asks me out and I like him so I go. He turns out to be the sweetest, most wonderful guy that I have ever met, let alone dated. Turns out we’ve got a decent amount in common and we’ve almost crossed paths before but if it wasn’t for Hinge, I never would’ve met the love of my life. It hasn’t quite been a year yet since we started dating but we’ve talked about our future together traveling, marriage, children and I know without a doubt that he’s the one I want to spend the rest of my life with. Thank you Hinge for introducing me to my best friend. ❤️

- Decent, but puts you “in a box”

Hinge is awesome in theory. The idea of making interactions with people extend beyond a simple “like” is great because it gives people (mainly men) an opportunity to stand out on their first impression. Unfortunately this innovation is stifled by seemingly worse algorithms for matching people and no major incentive to engage female users (see Bumble) into making or maintaining conversations with the overwhelming number of men that are matching/liking/commenting on their profiles. Another issue I find is the forceful “prompting” that seems to beat myself and others into answering uncomfortable/staged questions that may seem like icebreakers on the surface but in reality gives people that all too familiar feeling of introducing themselves to a group of strangers with “3 fun facts about themselves”. I think this unfortunately has the effect of making everybody using this platform seem nervous and uncomfortable instead of fun and date-able. In general, I’ve also found that the people Hinge suggests to me are seemingly way less compatible or similar to me in comparison to other apps. The overall experience somehow always seems like a “diet soda” version of competitor dating apps, which stinks, because I do really like the platform this app has. It sadly just seems to fail in its execution of introducing me to like-minded people. Let’s hope that changes!

- If you’re a guy, do not buy this app and here is why!

The app seems designed so that the guys fill up the women’s inbox with their initial comment and are left in queue until she finally gets around to seeing them. With a queue of only 6 slots visible, the only group that seems the benefit from “purchasing” the full app (allowing mostly to open a fully unlocked queue) would be the women. With which she may see all the men who have left comments on her profile at once. There is almost no point in scrolling through random mens profiles for her, because all the woman needs to do is wait. Systematically when a woman has responded to me personally, it has been after a week, or sometimes two! This isn’t once or twice though. This is every woman. And if I have asked them when they received my message? They had just received it in their queue. They have no way to tell how long a man has been waiting for a reply. It depends on how many other guys have left left comments to her before “you”. In all this app is only a functional dating platform if ALL PROFILES are purchased and all queues are fully unlocked. As for the guy? Don’t buy this app. You will get Nothing for it in return. Donate you money to an animal shelter or something and feed an animal for a day. You’ll get more satisfaction. Actually go rescue a dog and join a dog walking group of young adults. Then you just meet people. You know, like out ancestors used to do.

- Amazing app but I’m having an awful experience

I REALLY want to love this app, but I am getting so frustrated with the set-up that my experience has become negative. I signed up for it this morning and received 50 likes/ comments on my profile throughout the day, each of which lit up my phone. I couldn’t wait to get out of work to check them. However, as soon as I tried to, I found out I’m not able to view all of them unless I spend hours sifting through profiles. The reason being, they force you to view profiles one by one (like swiping) in order to see who already liked yours and then they mix those people in with people who haven’t even viewed your profile yet. I’ve spent over an hour on this app and I still have 35 unseen likes/comments, making me feel frustrated because I can’t spend any more time on this and upset that I’m missing out on meeting people who wrote genuine comments to me. Oh, and the worst part? It’s a money-making scheme. They don’t let you view your likes all in one place, *unless* you pay for a grossly overpriced premium membership of $13 a month. Again, I wanted to love this app because it’s amazing in every other way, but sadly I will be deleting it unless they change something here. The goal should be to make your app enjoyable, not anxiety-inducing.

- Algorithm is horrible and offensive

Well in theory their algorithm should be helpful. They only let you see people who are at your “level of attractiveness” but in actuality it doesn’t work. I means if you’re a person of color or a minority in any way you get sunk to the bottom of the attractiveness pool. I’m a type of person who some deem beautiful and some don’t, like a lot of women. I live in a city that is mostly white people and I do horrible in this app, my options of people to swipe on is almost offensive. My white friends who are the same attractiveness level don’t have that issue. When I go to other cities, I don’t have that issue. I enjoy bumble, where you just see everyone, you at least have a chance of someone finding you. Because of Bumble’s algorithms only unattractive and creepy people see me so tbshs the only likes I get and I often don’t “like” people. This all makes it difficult for people who aren’t “typically” hot. It’s offensive but I’ve found a trick...I delete the app and restart my account every other week. In the beginning I’m able to see all types of people but within a week, I’ve been demoted and only see “my level of attractiveness”. In the first week people who I’m attracted to “like” me and I’m able to “like” and chat with people that I’m attracted to. I guess that’s the world we live in, where algorithms tell you your worth or at least the worth their coders feel you are.

- Depressing honestly...

I don’t know maybe I just haven’t been trying long enough or maybe it’s just the area I live in because Virginia does have horrible people.. but I’ve been trying almost everyday for two months to meet someone and I haven’t gotten a single message let alone a date! This app is not the worst like at least I haven’t ran into nearly as many fakes or prostitutes as I have on other apps but the matchmaking is horrible and the fact that I’m limited to only messaging five people a day without giving you my hard earned money is complete bull.. I’m not gonna pay you a monthly fee to look on my phone everyday and see zero messages. I’m not gonna pay to be depressed and wanna kill myself. Nobody should ever have to pay for that.. I think I’m just gonna give up on dating apps for real.. I’d be better off just asking literally every female I see in public on a date no matter how awkward it is I’d probably have better luck than I do on here.. people who make these types of apps don’t really care about your happiness.. you need to go out into the world and take it for yourself.. the only thing that will happen when using an app like this is you’re going to continually get more and more depressed while the app developers pocket you’re money and say “keep at it! You’ll find someone” yeah, right save your 20 bucks n go to a movie or a bar or somethin you will have better luck

- If you are truly looking for a genuine connection...download this app.

So I rarely write reviews. Like I seriously can't remember the last time I sat down and wrote a review for something. That being said, I met my boyfriend through hinge, and our relationship is u like any other I've been in. I felt especially compelled to write something for the Hinge company. Finding a genuine connection in the time of COVID-19 (the plague, if you will), can be especially difficult, considering you can't meet up with anyone in person. That being said, because we both had put thought and effort into our hinge profiles, my boyfriend and I connected instantaneously, and soon were FaceTiming for hours, getting to know each other. Take time on your profile, and be honest about who and what you're looking for. The app does a pretty great job of finding matches from there. This really is an app that's made to be deleted. Good luck, everyone! Happy dating! P.S. Wash your hands, cough into your elbows, wear a mask in public, stay 6+ feet away from others, and for the love of all that is good...stay home as often as possible. We're all in this nonsense together. Stay safe and keep others safe. ❤️

- Easily the best dating app

If you’re looking to not have your time wasted and if you want to find a genuine connection, hinge is it. They’ve done everything right with the design of the app. Prompts allow you a place to start and get rid of the problem other dating apps have with empty bios. Every like goes directly to the other person and vice versa. There’s no messing around or mental games with “hidden likes” where you have to pay a premium to see who likes you. No dealing with algorithms that throw you to the bottom of the stack if you’re not the most conventionally attractive individual. Filtering by things like religious or political preferences easily deals with the issue of finding people you know you fundamentally won’t be compatible with. In my experience the “most compatible” feature also does a decent job of finding people I might share interests with. In fact, hinge is so successful that the other main dating apps have started to take pages out of its playbook with things like height, lifestyle preferences, and prompts. If your time is valuable or you really care about finding the one, don’t bother with the other apps, stick to hinge.

- Great app, will get better after a few updates.

This app has brought me more success and better conversations than tinder and bumble. If you’re looking for a real relationship I think this is one of the best choices for dating apps. It’s well thought out and let’s you choose from a good choice of prompted questions and examples of answers for your profile. It makes it easier to start a conversation by giving you the ability to like a specific picture or detail about a persons profile. You only get a few likes per day so you have to really choose wisely who gets your likes. This is good for those who are looking for a real connection but probably a downside for those looking for a hookup. I do wish you could get more likes but I guess that’s where the value in a premium membership is. So far I have not come across any bots or fake profiles either. As of now there’s no adds bothering you like on tinder. The messaging is lacking a bit. Its pretty basic. Just back and forth messaging No built in GIF or meme searches. Other than that I love the app and would recommend. I’m assuming these things will be added in the future so I’m not too worried.

- I’m about to delete the app, but not for the reason it’s supposed to be deleted

Overall, the format and style of the app is much better than other dating apps out there, however I wasn’t getting many matches when I first downloaded it. So I fixed up my profile; chose newer, more flattering pictures of myself, utilized the wide range of prompts available within the app, and extended my match distance. Unfortunately, there were not many matches that came to be anything. I travelled a bit, tried the app in other areas while I was there, looking for a sliver of hope, but alas, nothing came to fruition. I eventually had to relocate for work to a much larger, more populated city than the one I had originally used the app in. I was excited to see if my chances of finding someone who would make me want to delete the app, and hoped those chances would be much greater. After a couple of months of a few promising matches, and fewer conversations, I finally came to the only conclusion possible that is leading me to this review and to me potentially deleting the app: If you’re ugly in one city, you’re probably ugly in all the other ones too.

- Good, but could be better.

A very straight forward dating app. Compared to Bumble, it prompts users to look at a profile more without endlessly liking or disliking pictures. The downside to that is you can’t say anything in your bio and can only submit 3 facts or questionnaires that display on your profile. Overall on a basic level mutually liking each other prompts a conversation and it’s easy to connect with people. There is a big catch to the whole thing, however. For free you are only allowed to like 5 pictures a day - not much. As a straight male truly seeking to date, I opted for the upgrade as I’m sure many other men did for $9.99/month. The problem with this is that you get an unlimited amount of ‘likes’ per day, meaning women get their inbox slammed with ‘likes’. When you get a like, you can initiate the conversation so in a nut shell this is just another app where men flood girls inboxes with likes and the girls choose who to start a conversation with. It’s a total shot in the dark and I hope it improves. Also, from a financial standpoint because the scale is so tipped, women likely don’t have to pay as there is no limited on initiating conversations.

- Really impressed

I actually work in software development. What impressed me most about the app is after I met someone using the app, it actually predicted who I met and asked me if I met them right before we met. At first I thought it was creepy, was it following my life? Later, I realized it was because I had stopped using the app, and thats where it’s slogan, design to be deleted, kicked in. It knew based on how I was using the app who I had met. And the best thing it did with this knowledge is it stopped sending me updates from new matches. You have no idea how beneficial this is for a young single guy who is sometimes stuck between trying to sleep around and date seriously. With other dating apps I’ve used in the past, I would literally get matches while on the date with my match. Which is the most embarrassing thing, because then it becomes a question of, will I continue to use the app after I have met someone? Is the person I’m seeing going to continue to use it? If so, then how would this turn into something serious? This gets addressed by the app doing simple things, like helping you not use it when it knows you’ve met someone.

- This is the one

I used this app two different times when I was single. The first time I used it, there were lots of attractive matches and I had some really wonderful conversations. No weirdos or creeps. It was so refreshing from the couple other apps I’d been on and off of over the years. I got off of it because I always get on and off of dating apps, because In the end, I am a full believer in the traditional way of meeting someone and starting a relationship eventually. I didn’t go on any dates my first time using the app, just had some friendly conversations. Months later I was ready to try again, again I had some good conversations. I didn’t go on any dates. Until I finally did. And that man is now my husband! I tell all my friends to use this app. I had a coworker that used this app as well and married the guy she met from this app too. I never thought I’d get married, and I certainly never thought I’d actually meet someone worth while on an app. But hinge helped introduce me to my wonderful, amazing, forever husband. Thank you so much for being different than all the other sleazy apps that are out there now days.

- Lots of Glitches

This app has tons of technical problems. Notifications pop up all the time for when people like your profile, but message notifications don’t show up, so you can miss responses to your messages quite easily. Some matches disappear even before a conversation starts. People are able to hide vital information, such as whether or not they already have children. I live in California but have been matched with people who live in Georgia or Oregon; I’ve set my location to within a radius of, like, 20 miles and I get likes from guys who live 100 miles away or more. It’s a waste of time. And people are still able to like a picture without commenting, waiting for the other person to start the conversation. Waiting for me to do the work, as if that’s going to get my attention. It also doesn’t seem to be learning my preferences all that well and shows me guys who don’t seem to have any common interests or values. I picked Hinge because it touts itself as not just another hookup app, but using it is so frustrating, and requires just as much of a screening process to weed out sleazy guys, who make weird requests and don’t want a real monogamous relationship, that I’ve only gone on a couple dates in several months, all disappointing. I’m pretty close to giving up on the app altogether.

- Two stars

I think the app is worth 3.5 or 4 stars but unfortunately the guys bring the overall experience down to a 2. Guys shouldn’t be allowed to just “like pictures.” It so lazy, why not send a message with works. Also, the app should force each member to answer basic questions and make them viewable. So many guys don’t disclose what they are looking for or if they have kids etc. This takes away from the value of online which is getting some basic information upfront. Also, same experience as other apps - guys respond once or twice and then no further communication. Waste of time. Maybe have a feature to drop your connection automatically if no response in a day - that’s what I do. If you are too busy to communicate then don’t waste my time. If the app can figure out how to make dating more successful and not just being different only be negating the swipe feature, then I can give 5 stars. Maybe put people in strict categories - looking to see what is out there, looking to date slowly, looking for marriage and people can only see people in their category. Also you can’t change your category more than say every 3 months to avoid people taking advantage of just switching. If I made an app, that’s what I would do. Too many people wasting other people’s time

- Missing Some VERY important things

First, it allows you to pick pick your gender out of a pretty comprehensive list of genders, but it’s doesn’t have a place for pronouns...does Hinge seriously still not know why we ask for pronouns and not for someone to state their gender? It’s not that hard lol it’s 2019. Next, it’s really important to my vetting process that I weed out guys who don’t have the same political views as me, but you can’t do that with the free version. Like, if someone is anything but fully supportive of my basic human rights and other people’s rights and policy that supports my wellbeing, then obviously I can’t have a relationship with that person and it becomes such a waste of time to scroll through all these moderates/conservatives. Especially since it’s hard to come across someone who impressed me, me use the app less for sure simply because of the time spent sorting through obvious “no’s”. I think finding someone who cares about my wellbeing as a woman is implied in the app’s mission, so I believe that feature should be free. Anyways, the way guys choose to answer these questions is quite revealing, so that’s very helpful. I have dated a few people off of here.

- App is cheaters paradise

Very disappointing. I think guys on here who are wanting to sneak around behind their SO’s back flock to this app because it’s not as popular as competitors. I’ve used this app of and on for a couple years. I have yet been able to talk to a guy who, upon finding their social media, had a current girlfriend or wife. Other girls have gone through similar experiences with THIS app alone. My friend actually dated someone she found from Hinge for months just to get a Facebook message from his wife of 5 years one day. Another friend dated someone for a whole year just for us to discover he too had a girlfriend of two years. In my own experience, I had a random girl send me a screenshot of MY (now ex) boyfriend’s profile through Instagram. I see a lot of guys on Hinge also on Tinder, their Tinder bios will say looking to hookup, but their Hinge profiles will be very bland, saying the biggest risk they ever took was *this app* 🙄. Guys I’ve found with detailed profiles always seem to be hiding something or someone. If someone is using this app to cheat, or to simply get their nut, their needs to be a report system in place so their account can be disabled. This app sure is designed to be deleted alright, because in my experience it has been nothing but lies and heartbreak for me and my friends.

- Great app, but takes a while to match

Ive been using Hinge on and off for about a year and half now. Only have gotten like 8 matches, and all have been in response to me liking a photo or commenting, which is great, except its one sided. What I mean by this, is that I have NEVER had my profile or any picture of mine liked by a girl, or had a girl comment on a photo of mine and I feel like my profile is pretty darn good. I also have liked a ton of women on the app, but most of them wont/ or never will respond due to either them ignoring the comment or the fact that they never are on the app. So maybe a way to fix that problem, is to do a comb through of all the accounts that dont get used much and suggest to that user, something like “hey, we noticed you havent been using your Hinge account much, would you like us to go ahead and cancel it?” And then provide them options/reasons for why they want to cancel it. Its frustrating knowing that ive liked a picture or commented on a picture of a really cute girl, only to never get a response back again. Its like it goes into a void and never returns. Overall though, i think Hinge is the best dating app out of them all though, because it dives deeper than just the bare minimum.

- Found my partner

A friend had told me about hinge so I decided to give it a try. I was on it every once in awhile but none of the guys caught my eye so I gave up on it. One day after work I had received a notification from the app says someone had matched with me. Hinge lets you know if they think you and them person would be a perfect match, so I wrote back to this guy. We talked for about two weeks before actually meeting up. Then we started dating! Unfortunately that was a month before the Covid outbreak and he lived two hours away from me. We didn’t see each other for about a month until we decided that I’d move down there with him! We’ve been together ever since then. We have a cute little apartment with our new puppy. It’s crazy to see how fast we went in our relationship due to Covid but Hinge definitely helped me find the right one! Girls, if your man isn’t sweet and trying to do the most for you then he is not the one. Thank you Hinge for helping me find the one for me. I couldn’t be happier being with him. Definitely recommend this app to anyone who is looking for a serious relationship.

- Met the LOML

Never thought i’d write a review for an app (never have before). I met the love of my life off this app. I didn’t think that was possible since most dating apps is mostly only good for hook ups. Not this one. I’ve had more success from hinge than any dating app I’ve used. The potential matches are real people who are looking to actually date and potentially move on further with their relationships. I met my now current girlfriend off this app 4 months ago and we’re still going strong! I’ve met her family and she flew to meet mine over winter break. Maybe I’m the lucky one in a million guys who happened to meet the love of his life but my girlfriend and I are exactly the same person. We have inside jokes all the time that I can read her mind because we are so similar (90% of the time I can read her mind). We’re planning to move in together this April when my apartment lease is over. She talks about how she can’t wait for me to marry her some day. That doesn’t scare me at all because I feel the same way. Anyways, If I was to pick one app to use to meet the love of my life it would be this app!

- Best Dating App I’ve Tried

About a month ago, I made the decision to get off dating apps completely. I got so tired of only getting matched with creepers looking for one night stands, but Hinge has been a pleasant surprise. I tried out Hinge a year or so ago, and I couldn’t get the hang of it, so I quit. Once I sat down and really got to understand how to work the app, it was easy! It’s definitely not the rapid fire matching that you have on Tinder or Bumble, but if you’re patient and really develop conversations with your matches, you can really meet some great people! Something I love is the fact that there’s more information on the profile, so you have more to go off of than just how the person looks. Faith is also something that’s really important for me, so I look being able to match with other people who think it’s important too! I haven’t been using Hinge for that long, but after all the recommendations, I’m so happy that I gave it another try. There’s definitely some user experience updates that can be made, but all in all, I’m really happy with Hinge. Would highly recommend this over any other dating app if you’re looking to seriously date!

- Great App, Poor Results

This app works exactly as it should. It takes your preferences, interests and your location and shows other users profiles in your area. No hookups, scammers, bots, etc. This is perfect for people like me who’ve tried looking for a relationship face to face, and it never has worked out. It even gave me a month of premium for FREE just for using it a couple of days. However there’s a problem that makes my experience with this app disappointing. I live in a relatively small town, and not a lot of people use the app. I’ve liked almost everyone who has the same preferences in town and none of them matched with me. I lowered my preferences, tried again, same results. I would be willing to travel an hour/hour and a half to see someone, so I widened my radius, and after liking a lot of my results, got nowhere. With no matches in my town, and no matches in my region, I’m either really unattractive, people aren’t as willing to travel a bit, or there’s just not enough people in my area using the app. Would be great for people living in large cities.

- Needs Real Human Support

It's really frustrating that I'm giving this app one star because I loved it and loved the opportunities it provided me to connect with good people, but their customer support is a complete nightmare! You cannot get a hold of them and all you get is a canned response! Really?! My account was banned because I was switching from my old iPhone to a new one, not aware that this will prevent me from going into my account and eventually get me banned and even worse, people can still view my account on their Hinge while I'm completely out of it! It's the only app I used due to its respectful community and lack of sexual content, which is what I prefer, but this is totally unacceptable! They do not ever review the reason for being banned and not one term of services state logging into your number accidentally on two devices would have you banned. They need to work on their customer support, otherwise Hinge will keep losing customers over time. I am not the first one, I went through a lot of posts who faced the exact same problem. I lost contact with all people I was talking to and I cannot get back because their customer service is completely useless. After all the emails I have sent and even reaching out to them on Twitter with the same canned response. Zero star for their customer support.

- Contacting support is a nightmare.

I downloaded Hinge almost a month ago, signed up, completed my profile so it's 100% complete, and the app won't work. There's some bug that keeps telling me "complete your profile to send likes!", and also says "your profile is 100% complete! You can now send up to 10 likes a day"...but I can't. It won't even show me any matches whatsoever. It won't let me access my preferences because it keeps saying that I need a complete profile, but when I go back to see if there's anything else I need to complete, it says point blank that it's 100% complete! So there's literally nothing I can do. I've tried deleting the app, re-signing up, sending emails to support (which was kind of a nightmare to be honest, because apparently you have to be a premium member to get "personalized support"?) But almost 3 weeks after I sent in my 3rd support request, I finally got a response. They were nice, but just told me to do what I already did and try logging out of fb, uninstalling and re-installing the app, etc. Been there done that..about 5 times. Now I am officially giving up. Maybe they'll fix the bug eventually, but I'm done waiting around until they do. Super bummed, because I have a few friends who really like the app and I was excited to try it and see what it's all about. Oh well.

- Best dating app

I’ve tried bumble, Pof and hinge. And paid for all 3. Hinge by far was the best first. Felt there was more real people on it. Let me tell you why, on bumble I felt most girls were influencers. So they would make an account and show awesome pics. With little people actually looking. On plenty of fish, probably the worst I feel 90% of the people on there are only fan model or some kind on that area. / scammers sending you to another app or site. Can’t say I’ve seen very much success. Next on filtering what you’re looking for. I think bumble does the best in that respect with confirming that it’s person in picture. But hinge doesn’t come to far behind. Pof not even close. On dates I’ve been, hinge gave me best results. I’ve gone on most dates compared to the other two. I feel people are more relaxed idk what’s right word. Lastly I think they take there model very serious app meant to be deleted. If they don’t think so you’ll probably be banned like I was. I’ve said similar things on other platforms but got banned here. But yeah overall best dating app based on my experience

- All Scammers! And No Customer Service. 😡

I will say I talked with several guys in the 2+ weeks I used this app. Unfortunately, I had a creepy vibe with every one of them. They ALL asked to take the conversation to WhatsApp. I had never even heard of WhatsApp until I tried Hinge. I’ve talked to people on Bumble and Match and was never asked to use WhatsApp. I understand WhatsApp is used in foreign countries to get around the internet blocking. 😒That was a red flag with the first guy. Well, actually, the red flags with the first guy came when he said he lived in Texas, but was from Italy and his wife and children were killed in a car accident several years ago. 😳. The second guy’s profile showed he lived in Ft. Worth, but after we started talking, supposedly he was in the Army and stationed in Syria. Seriously?!! I had at least 5 guys ask to go to WhatsApp. And 2 supposedly stationed in Syria. Unfortunately, I paid for 3 months, but it was only about $25. I deleted my profile, canceled my account, and deleted the app entirely. I’m just hoping that none of my personal information has been compromised. Of course, I sent several emails to customer support about all of this, but no one answered. Bumble always replies. Can’t believe people are giving this app great reviews. Have to wonder if they’re fake too. Run away!!!

- Great app, but ...

Hinge is in my opinion the best dating app I’ve used for the intended aim of actually getting out on dates. There is one major downside though. This is the third time I’ve downloaded the app over the last several years and it’s always the same. You start out approximately 2 weeks or so getting nothing but attractive matches, and then it happens: your profile gets demoted and relegated to what I call the ugly bin. Sorry to be so blunt. Everyone needs love and standards of beauty can be somewhat subjective, I’m not trying to put others down. But this is a repeatable pattern with Hinge and after the two or so weeks ‘honeymoon’ period, the app becomes nothing but a waste of time. At this point some are thinking, perhaps it is I who is not so attractive and this warranted by the algorithmic gods that I be so relegated. Would it were so, but in the honeymoon period I did match with several attractive women, went out on dates with two of them, and am still seeing one (been on our third date as of now). I can’t speak to how the algorithm works, if it happens to everyone, or it’s just me who keeps getting wrongly demoted. At this point I would just say ... enjoy the first couple weeks.

- Nothing but good things!

I’ve had my fair share of experimenting with dating apps (coffee meets bagels, bumble, okcupid) and honestly none of them can rise to the occasion the way Hinge can. One, the interface is simplistic and aesthetically pleasing! Not difficult or gimmicky compared to CMB from my experience. Two, I can echo on the other reviews claiming this is a “classier dating app” - I feel like most of the people I came across want something serious but of course that part is individual and up to your discretion, whatever tickles your fancy. But honestly I have met some quality guys (I’m sure the same for girls!) here, some I consider friends now even when things didn’t work out for the long run. Whichever side of the fence you’re on, I have nothing but good things to say about Hinge and hope you get to experience the same fun and excitement in meeting the right person. PS! Amazon’s critically acclaimed series “Modern Love” has an episode inspired by the love story of the CEO of Hinge! Such a feel good show and a really well written episode honestly 🤗 episode 2 by the way- you’re welcome!!!

- The hinge team is not honest

I loved the app at first. It shows you only profiles that match your personality and people with who you share similar interests. Everything was working great, till one day all the data from my app was deleted including my matches, messages, pictures... when I reached out to the customer service, they said that it was a technical issue and that I can’t recover the data that I lost! So I had to create a whole new profile, and as an apology Team Hinge gave me a free one year preferred membership. Then two weeks later they removed the preferred membership from me, then 3 days after they completely deleted all my account. When I asked for the reason behind this they said that violated the terms and conditions of Hinge. Which was absolutely false because I’ve never had any issue with anyone on the app and I’m always VERY respectful to others. I did ask them to provide an evidence of their claim, and show me when and how I violated the terms, they refused to give me an explanation and stopped responding to my emails. Bottom line of the story is that Team Hinge was not honest with me, and made up a whole story just TO REMOVE THE FREE ONE YEAR MEMBERSHIP THEY HAD TO OFFER ME. Now wouldn’t recommend Hinge to anyone, and asked all my friends and their friends to stop using this app.

- Lacking in basic detail

Hinge claims that it eliminates the swipe culture and helps people find meaningful relationships. This is a wonderful concept and the main reason I downloaded it and purchased a subscription. However, there are major flaws that need to be fixed for it to work. First, many profiles are incomplete and have little to no details about the person. Two, users have the ability to hide major details such as employment status, whether they have kids, whether they smoke, height, and much more! Another thing that is concerning is education is “always hidden” and the user can’t choose to display their level of education. The only way to let others know that you graduated high school or college is to actually name the school, which is problematic for some people. These issues can be dealbreakers for folks and are fundamental questions. Three, there are no questions about what type of relationship the person is seeking. While I’d like to assume that everyone on the app is looking for something committed and monogamous, that’s not always the case. In summary, while the concept of the app is refreshing and very promising, it is lacking in real, authentic detail and feels like I’m navigating in the dark. In contrast to something like Match and Eharmony, it falls short and feels empty.

- Met my boyfriend through Hinge

Put simply, Hinge makes it so much easier to date. You can put as much information as you’d like on your profile, like individual parts of others’ profiles, humanizing the whole “swiping” thing, and you also get to see who liked you! (For a price, but I got a month of premium free.) Since, presumably, most people there are relationship-oriented, not just there for a hookup, you get to narrow your pool to like-minded individuals. You like one part of their profile, or the whole profile itself, say something nice (or nothing at all, depends what type of person you are), and if all goes well, you’ll soon be speaking to your future SO like I did. After trawling through apps like Tinder and Bumble with dates that didn’t last, I sincerely want to thank Hinge’s creators for living up to their promise of creating an app that makes it super easy to date while streamlining, yet humanizing the whole ordeal. I had a blast using the app, and unlike Tinder, it didn’t take me 500 matches (I’m not kidding) to find the “one.”

- Beware of Catfish & dating Scammers

This app has has a recent influx of fake profiles managed by individuals who are living abroad in Asia, the Middle East, and Nigeria. It’s very disappointing. I’m a frequent user and In one week I've matched with at least 3 fake profiles users. Ways you’ll know if the profile is fake? These users are portraying themselves as military men or men who are working for “a top private government agency” overseas. They’ll ask right away.. “how long have you been on this site”... “what are you here for”... “are you single or married”.. and “what do you for a job/living..” this is a dead giveaway! Then they’ll tell you they are overseas on deployment/work or are leaving in a few weeks/days. They’ll immediately want to move outside the app to a chat program like “WhatsApp”..” kicks”... or any other site to continue talking to you and getting familiar. The end goal is getting you to send them money by gift cards or western union. I’ve reported these profiles on the site but they still come up in the search engine and at times are used twice with different names. This app is very practical but the security needs to step up to ensure the users aren’t falling in to these dating scams by allowing these scammers to communicate. I hope it changes for the best.


So first off I would like to say not all experiences are gonna be like mine and I wouldn’t be surprised if this isn’t taken as a real response but I’ll leave it anyway just to give some hope. So I started the dating app scene two years ago and I had gone on many dating apps tinder, bumble, and Pof...all of which led to dates but none were that memorable. However, I randomly saw one profile that was in my area and I had checked her out (and yes this came after searching a good amount of time cause it’s not gonna happen the same day you download the app) but eventually we matched after a week. We then started talking and before you knew it I saw a real connection start to grow, I’ve even gotten to meet the family and have many memorable memories with her and it all was thanks to just being consistently patient and searching, not everyone is gonna have the same experience but I would like to say it is possible to find a genuinely great person as long as you stay true and patient in the online dating world.

- Decent profiles but annoying interactions if you don’t pay for the app

The only thing I like about the app is how the profiles are designed. Cute questions and easy ability to read/display the quick info. However, interacting with people is a nightmare. Everything seems like a numbers game these days anyway since only a fraction of people will like you back and only a fraction of those will even want to talk and it’s just frustratingly limiting to only have 10 likes to use in a day. Furthermore, the notifications on this app are insane. I’ve met one of my matches and I can’t clear the last notification on our conversation even after saying “we met”. As someone in software design I really think this entire app was not designed with actually user behavior in mind, but like this idea that they could change the culture by training their users. Ugh! I don’t want to hide the convo for this match but like I guess I will just to make the notification go away. We switched to text so it just annoys me that it keeps telling me it’s my turn. And having to sift thru profile after profile when I’m liked is so. Annoying. It makes me really not want to respond at all to any of the likes.

- Image and Info Stolen? Scam?

I downloaded this app after looking at multiple high-rated reviews online. After putting in my birthday during the sign-up process, the app suddenly locked me out and wouldn’t allow me to process any further, claiming that I was under the age of 18. I’m 20, and could have sworn that I put in the correct birth date. Figuring I may have made a mistake, I followed the corrective process suggested by the app’s official policy page and submitted a picture of my photo ID, blacking out all personal details except the ones requested. This process is the officially recommended one, as there’s a link at the bottom of the “Sorry, you’re 18” page that takes you directly to a draft email to customer support with detailed instructions on what to do. After repeating this process twice, I not only received no email back, but remained locked from using the service. I eventually deleted the app but now worry that it may have been a scam, and that my image and information could be used for illegal purposes. It’s possibly just a case of oversight or negligence, but I would like to finally hear back from their customer support team about what happened and if my ID was deleted from their servers. For other users, be wary that this can happen

- Hinge will Terminate Your Account with no fair due process

Hinge will remove your profile from their system and will not explain why, only that you violated their terms of service. They will say that they have a fair diverse team that looks at each member before they terminate the account, however they don’t provide any explanation as to why your removed. If someone your communicating with on the app makes a false claim about you, they can report you to hinge, and you can be removed with no fair recourse. The interesting part is that when they do terminate your account, they will still charge you your normal membership fees until you manually cancel the subscription. They don’t want your membership, but they are more than happy to continue taking your money after you have been terminated. My suggestion to men on here is to be prepared that someday you may be terminated as well even though you communicated with women in a respectful manner (I did), and don’t expect any fair process even though Hinge characterizes their termination process as fair. If you look online there are multiple cases of people, men and women being terminated, and many of those probably for no reason.

- Best dating app I’ve used so far!

I’ve been on them all.... tinder, bumble, coffee meets bagel, etc. HINGE is the best ones I’ve used so far! Even though it’s not as fast to get matches such as tinder, knowing that you have to be patient to get some matches usually ends up being worth it for me because my matches end up being people that I’m actually interested in. With the preferences of putting your faith and and ethnicity, I like how it narrows down what you’re looking for and the type of person that you’re seeking. I’ve definitely met some notable people that I’ve gone on dates with or are interested in dating. Compared to other apps that usually target one night stands or hook ups, hinge definitely forces that this is a serious dating app that individuals can use to meet someone that is serious as well. Recommend 10 out of 10!! If there was one thing that I’d want to change it would probably be having as many likes as I can without having to pay for the premium plan but that’s it.

- Do Not Pay!!

I had been using hinge and while some men seemed nice enough I also received many vulgar, inappropriate messages. Many also from men I was suppose to meet but then cancelled when they became inappropriate (degrading language etc) had threatened to “report” me for not meeting them. I then found I was “banned” from hinge for “multiple violations”. I contacted customer support and pushed the issue and what I believed was the reason for it and was simply told again that I was banned and to cancel the subscription I paid for. As I pushed this further I was finally told my profile was “accidentally flagged”. Which is fine however I would have never been told that if I had not continued to push this issue. My profile and all my messages are clean and respectful. I have asked for reimbursement of my subscription as I was not able to use the app after being charged. I have heard of other women having similar issues. Beware of this form of retribution that is being done on apps and then you will not have initial support from the support team. Also not sure if it is a way for them to keep new payments as something similar happened last month when I paid as well. If you decide to use the all Do Not pay for it!

- I met my boyfriend here

Before I tried Hinge, i tried about 2 or three of the other major dating apps out there (Im sure you can figure out which), and I was on and off the apps for about 2 years, and it just never worked for me, but they were addicting. I decided to delete all dating apps, gave myself a break, and one day wanted to try it again, but something I had never tried before. And I tried Hinge. Hinge is more serious. If youre looking to actually find someone to have a meaningful relationship with instead of dating just to date, or hooking up (which is not my thing) , then Hinge is defffff the right fit for that. On my first few matches, I matched with a guy who is now my current boyfriend, and we have been together 5 months so far. He is a great guy, nothing was weird, and Im glad I met him on Hinge. If you want to find a meaningful partner in your life, I think that out of all the dating apps out there, you will likely be able to achieve this better when using Hinge.

- Cute layout. Meh. Another dating app.

The picture prompts and quotes make this app more conducive to conversation. The way you have to scroll down makes it very familiar (Instagram and Facebook). Thus, the app is inviting and maybe that’s why so many people like it. I personally don’t see how it stands out overall. A few things I dislike: A) it shows me people I already said NO to making the experience counterproductive. B) But the most frustrating part when you reach the end of your potential matches and are given the option to go back an review those you said no to. WARNING! Don’t click this because you will end up having to go through dozens of people you’re not interested in with no way to revert this option. I literally fear hitting this on accident and have done it a couple of time to the point that I just wanna delete the app. C) What crazy algorithm do they have? So far every person they’ve suggested as my best match has been not my type at all! Not sure what they base this on but seems completely at random. Try the app but not sure you’d wanna end up paying the $19 a month.

- What I see in other reviews

People complain about being ghosted and then rate the app 3 stars and that it needs to fix this. First, that person needs to change because they clearly aren’t holding interest in the person they are talking to and that person has found interest in someone else. How do we fix this? Maybe implement common questions, tips, etc. on how to converse or even add a side bar for things to talk about. Add the ability for users to add to that sidebar and have the devs filter good from bad. Also if the conversation has not been touched, instead of asking if they met up, add another feature where if they say no, here’s a question or conversation starter to try again with said person. Tutorials help, but this app shouldn’t be “hey we are going to show you HOW to talk to someone” so ignoring this correction above is totally understandable. I think if this feature is put in though, the app will be even more recommended than it is now (I recommend it over any other dating app). I personally love everything you guys do with this app, and though yes I get matched but then get ghosted, I realize my intro to them wasn’t really great. This review is more for the person about to rate this, or view other ratings. Also to appreciate how well this app does compared to other dating apps. Other dating apps are more along the lines of ‘Becky, can I smash?’ While this one allows meaningful connections to be made. 5/5, will continue to recommend.

- Their algorithms are ridiculous.

I live in Chicago, I’m considered a very pretty girl (I can confidently say I’m attractive and take care of myself), I’m successful, and live in the city. I’m not full of myself but I can’t help wondering how in the world do I get those men as my daily “most compatible” match? If I could post pictures without hurting anyone, you would understand. My friends complain about the same; it’s not just the physical appearance, which sorry but this guys are not even a 2, it’s the fact that they’re not near me, and don’t fall under any of my filters (education, physically active, etc.), none. The “Most Compatible” algorithm is allegedly based on the kind of men in the profiles I like...ummm...not even close in any way. It’s depressing. Other than that, I mean, it’s what it is. Not the developers fault that the men in the dating pool follow the Bumble protocol of not making the minimum effort of commenting or anything, they just hit like on a picture or answer, or if they match with me after I’ve liked their profile, they just “invite you to start the conversation” won’t say a thing. Again, the woman is the one that has to do all the work.

- Nice change to online dating, found my boyfriend! But some bugs still

Great potential and a refreshing experience of an app. But there are some bugs that need to be ironed out to help grow the user base. My issue is that messages in chats will randomly disappear so it doesn’t really make sense. But they’ll come up in my notifications all fine so I have to go into the notification centre to see what they actually said. Overall, having the conversation starters part of your profile adds a lot more depth to the person. Ultimately, online dating is online dating and Hinge doesn’t solve all the issues with online dating, but I have made stronger connections through Hinge and was lucky to meet my boyfriend through it.

- Hinge are crooks

Do NOT use hinge. I added hinge on a Mexican phone number while travelling in Mexico, the account never seemed to work properly, when I got back to Australia and attempted to log in using my Australian number I was told I had been banned. I tried multiple times to get answers from their ‘support’ team, but just got replies saying pretty much that can ban whoever they want under their guidelines. However one person said it looked like I had been banned for trying to access under an IP address which was not allowed on Hinge (I had been using a VPN in Mexico to watch Australian streaming services. I explained this and have asked time and again for the ban to be lifted but it just goes ignored. Also I had paid for the product, their only recourse of refund was to take it up with Apple. We all know how easy to it is to get a refund from Apple. Hinge - we will happily take your money and then make sure you can’t use the app. A bunch of crooks. Again, do NOT use, unless you want to be ripped off and treated like garbage.

- Started strong, but now just same as tinder

At first it seems better than tinder because you see a lot of high quality profiles with thoughtful/witty comments. But, three weeks in, all I’m seeing is the same old low resolution sunglasses pics and mirror selfies in messy bedrooms. I’ve put a lot of effort into my profile, the pictures and the comments, and I’m getting less connections than I would on tinder or bumble. I receive about 5-10 likes per day, but there are many days when I don’t find anyone I want to like. Three weeks in and I’m getting close to deleting it - hours and hours of effort and it just doesn’t seem to be working. I’m disappointed, I had high hopes for this app.

- Better than other apps

I just started using Hinge and am finding it so much better than tinder and bumble. I find other apps way too time consuming I don’t mind that you only get 5 matches a day because I don’t want to waste my time endlessly swiping, it’s great that you can really filter out what you’re looking for and there seems to be a lot more interesting people on here. Still see lots of the same people from tinder but it’s a different vibe and worth a try!

- Nice, when/if it works, which it doesn't.

It's a good design, and reasonably well executed. However, it seems to remove someone from the pool/stack without notice and with no recourse to return. I became busy with work for two weeks, and learned upon my return to the app that it thought I'd seen everyone that met my specifications--a status that has not changed despite my attempts to reset, broaden them, etc. Even if this were true at one point, it's hard to believe that no women aged 18-65 joined the app within a 100km radius of Sydney (Australia) in the past 3 months. Prior bug fixes have not resolved this. There is no clear way to seek assistance regarding the matter. Result: the slogan "designed to be deleted" is taking on a different, and less favorable, meaning.

- Virus restrictions have eased in Australia

Hi, I am enjoying the Hinge app, thank you guys for all your hard work. One thing I would like to mention is regarding the coronavirus restrictions in Queensland Australia (and I believe the rest of Australia as well). Restrictions have eased for a while now, and we are able to meet each other and join groups of up to 20 people, and this rule is also easing again on 1 July. So just in regards to your ‘date from home’ ruling in-app, this is not actually the case in Queensland or Australia any more, and it would be appreciated if you lifted this restriction off your app, so there is no problem in meeting matches off the app. Thanking you kindly for your help:) Thank you 🙏

- Paid membership needs work!

Hey Hinge Team, the app had potential when it first came out but now you’re restricting likes, which I thought would be fixed by paying for “preferred membership”. I thought fair enough your team needs to make an income. However now, because of that restriction being put in place, that means less people are able to see my profile and approach me, (even though I paid to be seen more often). May I also suggest we alter the algorithm of seeing the same people again and again (sometimes 3 times in a week). I haven’t changed my mind and now I’m wasting a paid membership on seeing the SAME guys I wasn’t interested in the first place, again. Hopefully the app can regain its original spark, here to have my faith restored guys👍

- Good app until your banned inexplicably

I was recommended this app and used it and met some great people here on Hinge where it does what many of the other apps try to but fail however there is an unfortunate side affect to that, when you sign up you agree that hinge can ban you without warning or explanation and no appeal process at all regardless of the situation so this means you can literally never break the terms and conditions or expected behaviour but if your reported or hi he suspects information is inaccurate then you can and probably will be banned for life with no explanation given and no chance of appeal. Strongly consider this when joining and remember even if you follow the rules it can still happen to you.

- You will be banned for no reason

Don’t use hinge, you can easily report anyone and get them banned for any reason as there is no formal process in hinge, it’s completely broken. I used hinge for barely a few days, a girl was interested in me and I informed her I was not looking for a relationship, every exchange we had was related to our love and compassion for animals whereby there was nothing possibly in violation. After informing her I was not looking for a relationship she blocked me on everything, then false reported me. Hinge has no fair process to filter out reports, they take anything at face value, thereby making false accusations ok when in fact they belittle the real victims in real situations.

- Shouldn’t bringe politics into your app

I don’t appreciate logging onto the Hinge app and being stopped in my tracks to be told I need to take a moment to think about the BLM movement. People are being killed and animals tortured during these riots, and you are inadvertently supporting the cause. In the name of what? Justice? Do not try and tell me what to think or urge me to visit the BLM website. You are segregating race and even GENDER within that message, you’re supporting the defunding of police that for the most part protect the people. You do not get to hinder mine, OR ANYONES free speech. I couldn’t even find a way to contact you directly, but you’re able to tell me how I must behave and what I must think? I strongly urge anyone considering getting this app, to not waste their time. It has a terrible layout and you can barely do anything without paying a subscription. Hinge should be ashamed that they would use a mans death to virtue signal and gain more account holders. I don’t like cancel culture, but I hope you go broke. 🤙🏼

- Puts tinder to shame

I’ve already had more dates and genuine conversations with amazing people in one week that I have with Tinder in entire year! The added information adds more depth of conversation starters and I think the algorithm suggests people you actually have stuff in common with. I just really wish they would fix the common bug about never getting notifications (and yes it’s enabled in settings)

- Useless app that does not work

I downloaded hinge after reading so many rave reviews on it and only to be very disappointed. I had to get verified only for nothing to happen. Then they have the cheek to say pause your profile because I am not being active enough. How can I be active when there is no activity coming from your app from anyone apart from you nagging me repeatedly to verify my account. Just another extremely overhyped subscription based app trying to pretend to be something special when it is clearly not. The only reason your app is designed to be deleted is due to frustration from its users at how useless it is.

- Good when it works — but needs to be updated

2 weeks in and I’m enjoying myself, the people are better on here than on tinder. I really want this app to work out, but there are a few things that need addressing: There is the messaging, the text-box doesn’t accomodate what you’re typing beyond a certain point, so you can’t even read what your saying, and sometimes messages don’t come through. But there’s a bigger issue: I matched with a cool guy, and got a notification of his message, but nothing had come through on the app, which is frustrating, because I can’t message him yet, since the app is acting like we haven’t matched. I really hope that the support team can help me with this issue, and prevent it from happening to others

- As bad as eharmony

I’m a genuinely in shape, decent looking bloke who downloaded this app in good faith from recommendations from my lady friends. Unfortunately I have to swipe NO on 98% of the females on this app. I’m definitely not vain in any sense, but after two weeks I’m having the fattest, ugliest, most desperate girls filling my swipe feed. Genuinely, it makes me feel like a terrible human seeing the state of these people. I feel like I’m swiping on livestock after a good swipe sesh. It’s debilitating to the point where it’s actually depressing swiping through so many people who aren’t a good fit as a match. Hinge needs to place some sort of algorithm in (similar to tinder) that matches you with people based on popularity. It’s a good concept, but how can you advertise a dating app (most of which focus on material factors) but have such a horrendous user experience for people who aren’t so hard on the eyes. As a single guy I’d recommend tinder, bumble and even plenty of fish as a better dating app before this mess

- designed to be deleted due to chat bugs

Have had the app fail to send a message or send a message 2-3 times, or have someone else do the same thing to me. At the core of this app is messaging and it fails at this basic use case as you cannot see if a message is delivered or even if you can trust that is message has been sent, also the duplicate of last message when it surfaces a helpful popup which causes people to inadvertently spam you with the same message or you to someone else.

- Best tool

I have tried quite a few sites and this is my first review. I like that there’s enough decent guys on here but also I really like the idea of liking and inviting to chat!! Well done! This tools helps to have a good look at the person’ profile, have enough time to think about what you like then kinda helps for a quicker connection. I look forward to meeting my match on here.

- Repeated results

Hinge is not a good app, after a couple months using it, it doesn’t show me that it is that good of an app, even with all the advertising on social media sites and al the rest. Just after the first month I think, same girls keep popping up everyday, even with widened search parameter. And so far only one match. A lot of which is just profile with nothing but pictures and or fake profiles. Somehow have to refresh after every twenty results and have a limited likes per day about 10, which is annoying after some time.

- Not receiving notifications for messages

This app is pretty good but lately I have noticed that I am not getting any notifications based upon receiving messages from the person I have matched. This has led to make me believe that they are not receiving notifications that have received a message either. I genuinely this is a bug and please developers fix this bug as quickly as possible

- Quality app for quality match’s

I have been using a couple different apps to try and meet people after a break up late last year. Tinder, Bumble and Hinge. I have matched with a few people on each of them and while I haven’t had a connection with everyone I think the conversations I have had through Hinge have been the best so far. No virus links yet 🤞🏻

- Great work

Beautiful app, stunning design. I would move the x button though to the top right as it’s a pain to find it in the bottom left every time and this way you can quickly move through using your thumb to scroll. Also, it did crash 3 times on me when trying if upload pics. Definitely a bug there. But incredible App guys, now you need to fill it with great men. Good luck with that 🙃

- Overall great but a few issues

The app is good overall but I have serious issues with messages not going through properly at times. I’ll send a message that’s time stamped for that time (so I think all is fine) but when I re-open the app the next day, the message’s time stamp changes to the current day. And I may have missed messages in the meantime.

- Great app! Best on the market !!

I absolutely stand by this app. The quality of the people on this app are great and the conversations are also really good. The science behind the app is also fantastic and the connections and suggestions it makes work well. I highly recommend this application over Bumble and other apps on the market! Highly recommend!!

- Banned for no reason?

I moved overseas but my App Store is still set to Australia. My old account was connected to my old SIM card which I no longer have, so I tried to sign up with my new phone number and kept getting error messages when trying to register by phone or Facebook. Then all of a sudden i try again and it tells me my account has been banned? I have no clue why? I haven’t even been able to sign up yet? I tried contacting customer support about it but they were no help. Really disappointed because I liked the hinge app before. 😞

- Good selection

The guys on here are definitely to a higher standard then what I’ve seen on other apps in every way, better looking, better behaved, polite, and just nicer overall. Have to take off a star though because there’s been a few times when messages haven’t gone through to the other person

- Banned for no reason and no response

Shame this happened because apart from all the fake accounts it isn’t that bad. I was banned randomly from hinge and had not sent any inappropriate messages at all. It happened out of the blue. I requested a review and explanation for this but hinge do not have any appeal process at all. They purely believe any report a girl makes and ban the account instantly without even looking at it. It is heavily biased. Be careful if you’re a man and have paid for this app because you may be banned ignored and have to keep paying If you’re not careful.

- Hinge found my dream girl

Hinge brought back my confidence after a break-up, and allowed me to meet the girl of my dreams. This app can do wonders, the quality of people is much higher and can be much more selective than other dating apps... but don’t make your dating preferences too limited, or you might never meet that lucky person!

- Scrap tinder and bumble

I’m very happy with this app, tinder and bumble used to be good but now it’s clear that all they care about is to make money but it’s way too expensive, only lonely old men would pay that. Hinge is simple and gets results fast and the girls on here aren’t seeking attention like other apps. Anyway have a great weekend everyone and happy hunting :)

- App needs some technical work

I've been using Hinge for 2 weeks now and have already gone on 3 dates, all really great guys. The quality of people is far better than what you would find on Tinder. My only gripe is that the app can get glitchy and resend the same message multiple times, or send them out delayed. Also unsure if there is more to the "we met" option than just hitting yes, as the other persons profile picture comes up underneath that section but I'm unable to scroll down and answer further questions.

- Hinge: designed to be deleted

I get it, I get it. Banned from the app for no reason? Unlikely. Well, it happened to me. I signed up on the 16th of Jan 2020 and uninstalled the app a couple of days on the 18th. I hadn’t messaged a single person. It wasn’t until today, the 24th of July 2020, that I decided to try the service out again, only to find that my account (and all associates logins) was permanently banned. Hinge’s customer support is notoriously vague and unhelpful, so there is no appeals process, let alone a way to find out why. Oh well, Hinge puts it best: an app designed to be deleted.

- Fake profiles galore

This app is mostly a waste of time and money (if you upgrade). Firstly, there’s a disproportionate amount of very attractive female profiles and then when you match with them they’ll send one message and that’s all. They’re either bots or Hinge employees that are paid to create false hope for the user so that they stay subscribed to the app. I’ve met a few real people on it but most of the profiles are fake. I even found a profile of a friend of mine who I know doesn’t even use Hinge so that’s one 100% certified fake! Don’t waste your time on this app.

- Met my soulmate

One in a million chance but it happened, and he’s the man I’m going to love for life. An advice is to never narrow your criteria too much — I ended up scrapping all the filters and met my current partner who did not satisfy any of my initial “stadards”. The most miraculous thing will happen, as long as you’re willing to be open-minded. Thanks Hinge!

- No more endless swiping

I’ve been single and dating on and off for 2 years. After feeling defeated and certain I’d end up living life with 4 cats I decided to sign up to Hinge. Goodbye mindless swiping🙌🏻 Hinge encourages interesting, funny and authentic conversations taking the pressure off “selling yourself” in those generic bios. First date from Hinge I met someone I actually like!!

- Hinge feedback

Great app, much better than the others I’ve used. Women tend to take the app more seriously and it appears a much higher chance for something serious to start. The prompts are a great idea but I’ve noticed a lot of women writing the same garbage and immature stuff in their prompts that has carried over from bumble/tinder

- Premium vs Free Skewed

The app itself is much like the other swipers out there. I can’t say it’s been more or less wholesome, but I do like how clear the layout is, and how easy it is to find info. The one thing I do take exception to is the fact I have to pay to have the right to exclude people who take drugs or smoke. For free, I can filter out particular ethnicities and religions, but I have to be a premium member to keep myself safe. I think that’s ludicrous.

- Creative/Fun App, Poor Messaging Function!!

Have met cool peeps. But I’m mainly annoyed that they haven’t dissed out the chat functionality!! I either don’t get messages sometimes, or they’re super delayed. Will keep using, but I hope this isn’t a last priority for the team as a way for people to complain and ask for contact details. I prefer messaging within the app until I real comfortable or we make plans. Fix it up!! Cheers x

- Discrimination

A few of these apps through trying to control poor behaviour, don’t clearly separate unmatching someone for no reason vs poor behaviour reasons. The unmatch for no reason is hidden as the bottom choice. When a match incorrectly unmatches you, in choosing any of the reasons, this goes as a black mark against you. Enough of these black marks and your profile will be deleted. This is discrimination, hinge and other apps need to make this clearer, as people are lazy when they unmatch as they’ve decided to move on.

- Member?

I don’t like the element where you can only see one person who has liked your photo. It shows up that 3 or 4 people have liked your photos but you have to be a member to see have access to their profiles which is very annoying. Can we have access to at least 3 peoples profiles and then any number after that you have to become a member to see the rest?

- Great

I met the love of my life on this app, couldn’t be more happy that I gave it a shot. I was lucky to have met her cause I’d almost given up, kept getting suggested people who I definitely would not have matched with...but with her the app said “highly compatible” and I have to agree. Nearly a year later and it’s been magic.

- Constantly pesters you to use it

Unlike other dating apps hinge itself is a needy partner. Constantly pestering you to reply to messages with thumbnail alerts and push notifications. If you’ve read a message but haven’t replied it keeps the notification there until you do. The interface is a little clunky and your ability to describe yourself as you want to is limited by their question/answer profile format. It’s okay, but not great.

- Won’t let me finish profile

The apps seems nice except for the fact that I’ve tried about twenty times now and the app won’t let me upload the required six pictures to my profile meaning I can’t match with anyone. Every time I try to upload the sixth photo it keeps saying ‘error’ after “saving” for a minute. Please fix this because I would really like to use the app

- Is this really a dating app ;)

Hmmm I’m a little bemused by the whole thing. I’ve been having some great chats with some very cute girls and have enjoyed some laughs and banter. It seems that as soon as you ask someone out for a drink they freeze. It’s rather hilarious and I’m just about to find some better ways to spend my time. The app seems to work well and is easy to use. It’s just more to do with how people are and the fact that many people are on here because they’re bored, having nothing better to do and are generally just looking for attention and pen pals. Thanks though. Cheers, Jimmy

- Designed to drag you into paying...

Extremely dishonest app that, after swiping left literally 98% of the time, continues to offer up accounts of the types of people I have no interest in 98% of the time. Clearly a firewall of sorts to rope you into paying to unlock access to profiles of your more athletic, healthy, average person. Months in and this is clearly a ruse. The more you swipe left, the more you see the profiles you’ll be swiping left on.

- Not enough users

To whoever from Australia (mainly Melbourne) wants to use Hinge to find love, there aren’t that many users and profiles to look and review (between ages 20-30). There’s maybe less than 50 profiles? I have been on the app for a month and no one has liked me. You’re better off speed-dating or using the other apps with bigger user base. Hinge is a good idea but it hasn’t taken off. I’d wait a couple of years before coming back on here.

- Banning user

Deleted my account a while ago as there wasn’t much going on. After a year, tried to register again and my number is banned for “violating terms and conditions”. I’m very sure the contents in my profile did not have anything inappropriate, so can only assume that I was banned from deleting and cancelling subscription. Also, there wasn’t any information given or sent to me to tell me what happened.

- Good concept but needs to be refined

Pros: -that either gender can message first -you can engage with specific parts of people’s profiles -profiles have question prompts Cons: -you can just ‘like’ a photo on someone profile. This is such meaningless engagement! Usually someone likes your photo but never even messages you. -matches don’t expire so there is no urgency for people to message you. Overall, I liked the concept of the app however it just doesn’t work very well because most people just ‘like’ your photo and leave it at that. I think you should have to comment rather than like. Conversations starter prompts would be useful to make it even easier for people to reach out. Also, matches should expire to create urgency.

- It works

The app really is designed to be deleted and takes away the guess work surrounding intentionality. I met my soulmate on this app after only a month or so of downloading. The app itself is well designed, encourages personalised questions and works on reciprocity. Honestly it’s a great app.

- The land of the leftovers

I’ll say it, Hinge is where the people who failed to match on Bumble and Tinder end up. It’s the remaining crumbs of a packet of chips. It’s the reduce to clear item at the supermarket. It’s the car sold for the spare parts. To be blunt the site is filled with physically unattractive users, weirdos, cat women, bigots, and awkward people. Don’t get me wrong there are some decent profiles (fake users or abandoned accounts) but it’s only there for an illusion of quality, don’t expect any replies. I said nope to 98 profiles and yes to 2, this is coming from someone who has low standards. It appears Hinge doesn’t remove inactive accounts. I saw a few profiles where the Instagram feed showed the user in a relationship for over a few months. Yet the profile was still being shown. I can’t recommend this app.

- A Decent App

I’ve found most of the men I’ve met on hinge are very broken from prior relationships. I think there needs to be some compulsory categories under ‘what are you looking for? And when did your last relationship end! Also on the wants kids or doesn’t want kids needs to be compulsory with no ‘I don’t know’ option because men dance around this question in every situation they can! Often they will say whatever they think a woman wants to hear. This can be very deceptive...

- Didn’t work for me.

I’ve been on plenty of dating apps, dated some decent guys but I’ve never been so unpopular as I am on this one haha it’s given me a complex because I got 5 matches in the months I was on. 3 that never replied and 2 that just wanted to hook up. Ugh I though it would be better than tinder and bumble.. Turns out, it’s worse for me. I’m definitely no babe but I just never thought I was hideous to the point no guys would match and talk with me.. Deleted it. Hope it works for others apparently I’m too ugly 😂

- Great app

Great app, but there’s still quite a few glitches. Specifically photos not loading on a regular basis. That is quite annoying as I can’t see people’s pictures, and there’s a good chance that sometimes people can’t see my pictures either. Please fix this. So far that’s the only issue that comes to mind. Other than that, well designed app

- Better than all other dating apps!

Thankful for this app as I got to meet my bf through it 😊 we matched in lots of different areas! The quality and aesthetics of this app is definitely better than all other dating apps. Recommend!

- Are you kidding me?!

It was a fantastic app, at least until the recent upgrade makes you pay to see the people who match with you. What’s the point of having a dating app if you have to pay to connect with people? 🙄 I definitely don’t recommend this app.

- It was a great app and then it hid my likes behind a paywall

Jesus, okay. So I really liked this app. Today it locked all my likes behind a paywall. I can’t even see the people who responded to my profile anymore even though I could see them yesterday. I get having neat features for subscribers, I don’t get this. Actually really disappointed and the truth is the app is pretty good otherwise and I’d consider it, except nobody who doesn’t pay is going to stick with it, and considering how many small features like reversing an X you hit in error on someone who liked you and being able to go back when you’re swiping to previous people, I doubt that many people will for basic functionality. Devs: You have a great app here, but locking the people who like us behind a paywall so we can’t even see them? That was a terrible design choice. You just cut our potential matches by like 90%. I hope you fix it, if you do I’ll probably try it again someday.

- dating just isn't for me, but i think the app was well made

features like your best match, dealbreakers and personal preference are innovative and fun. they gotta reduce the prompts or give us the option of writing our own though. what if a dating app gave us an option to link our tweets instead of instagram because our pictures are on our profiles anyway. i deleted it because i hate meeting people online, but it was easy to delete my account and that ease moved me to write a review

- bugs, dropped matches

Brutal bugs. Had every girl that liked me that I responded to disappear. You can’t close the app and come back to a person later to decide either, it seems to make them disappear too. And the same problem with the x as others, way too easy to hit. Seriously rookie UI from an app that’s been around a while and likes to think it competes with the other dating apps.

- App sucks & confusing

After 3-4 likes you have to pay or wait I don’t know how long. Very confusing. Requires too much work.

- Login issues

Have been facing login issues (both fb login and ph login) for past few weeks now. No reply from support. Seems like a lot of people have been facing login issues. Tried downloading the app again, removing all data - still the login just doesn’t work. Stopped working suddenly.

- Archaic

They are 3 countries out of 195 in the world that aren’t using the metric system. United States of America, Myannar and Liberia. Please use use kilometers.

- Pay for 1 month!

Listen to any girl or guy that complains about this app.. if you don’t bother paying for 1 month then what do you expect to get out of this- just go on tinder and be unhappy like you always are or any other dating site. This is coming from a 28 year old living in Canada - there is a lot of great REAL women that are on this app because they are sick of guys not wanting anything serious— so if you use your head just abit.. you spend your money act normal and you shouldn’t have a problem ? This app is great iv met and stayed in contact with multiple women, be normal, use your head. Should be easy

- Banned for no reason?

Downloaded the app a while ago for a week, then deleted, tried redownloading and turns out I’m banned? For...?

- Met my soulmate. Deleted the app!!

Would never have met the love of my life if not for this app!!

- meh

This app is average. Nothing great, nothing terrible. Matches are not very likely. Only about top 20% (decent looking but not hot) are worth pursuing, but, they hardly like you back. I do appreciate those prompts, to promote conversation, BUT, I wish the average non-paying user (which is probably a majority) would be given more free likes for the day. Otherwise, their likes go to the top 20% decent people, and the average people barely get any matches. Also, I wish you could be more specific in the search for bi-racial people. For example, if I’m trying to match with a cute half asian half Italian man, it would be nice to have that search option. Otherwise, the app is not bad because the conversations are thoughtful, BUT, it’s nothing exciting either because the matching probability is very, very, low for the average user. Even if I’m a paid member, this doesn’t increase the chances because the average non paying user is very limited.

- Good in wpg

Good app. Easy to use and free basically .

- Designed to be deleted for sure

Because I can’t even log in. Keep getting an error regardless of which method I choose. I contacted support but they take forever to reply with obvious answers that I already explained I’ve tried. Deleting it.

- Dangerous

Never have I ever thought other dating apps like Tinder, Bumble or even POF were dangerous. It seems like predatory men flock to this app. I went on a date with a man who didn't look anything like his pictures and then proceeded to stalk me for months afterwards, and this wasn't an isolated incident using Hinge as it happened again before I finally deleted the app (yes, Hinge was notified on both occasions and I never received a follow up) If we're talking about technicalities, the radius is a circle and not linear. Meaning if you live near the border of a country you are going to have to sift through people who aren't in the same country as you but within the same radius. I've never written a review for anything but if at least one lady sees this and chooses another dating app then the hassle of using this awful app was worth it. Stay safe out there ladies and choose any dating app BUT Hinge.

- Algorithme or quality members prob?

Is it my algorithme that only display this kind of profile or are all your users overweight? Thought the concept was interesting but tinder brings better users.

- Scam

Before I paid the monthly fee I was seeing all kinds of hot nice looking girls then I pay it switched to all these fat ugly girls and barely any hot ones ,clearly they have a bunch of fake profiles to sucker guys into paying .

- You have to pay to use - don’t bother

If I would have known I had to pay to use this app i wouldn’t have downloaded it. Don’t bother, there are other apps you can use without a fee

- Glitchy app

It has glitches and some conversations got un matched randomly. Some might’ve been genuinely unmatched but seeing how some disappeared yet came back the next day made me doubt the whole app. I asked some of my matches if they unmatched me and they said no but the conversation disappeared on their side too. The whole dropping/unmatching someone mid conversation is an incredibly depressing and painful feeling. There should be a nicer way to end things. So if the algorithm is also messing things up then it makes this app untrustworthy.

- New changes awful

Used to be very good. I guess the owners needed new cars, now everything requires cash. Can’t even edit my own profile. Real shame. Bye.

- My experience

I’m left very confused as to why I was banned after having this app for about a week and doing nothing but have normal conversations with people.

- Scam...

It was a fine app, but somehow I got banned and there’s no appeal system. I did NOTHING offensive and even the one girl I’ve gone on a date with I’m still in contact with. And yes I even bought a subscription. Just use this app free you’ll get banned with no word, not worth your hard earned $ ima just sign up free again and try to clap some quarantine cheeks... f$&@ you hinge

- Horrible experience

Banned me for no reason and they REFUSE to give any answers of why I was banned and do not have customer service. Very bad company praying on youth for info

- Take your time

Good profile requirements, and it requires you and your peers to put in some effort. A low amount of likes per day is good, forcing you to be considerate. A slower dating app for people taking their time to find someone

- Messages do not appear

I get notifications of messages but they don’t appear in my chat thread.

- Banned for no reason less than an hour after downloading.

I downloaded hinge for less than an hour and was banned while looking which of my photos to add. I hadn’t even matched with and messaged anyone and I was kicked out. My pictures are innocent selfies. While looking to find a solution on reddit I found that people just report others at random for the most minor conceived slight. It’s a ‘report before you get reported mentality’ Hinge doesn’t care who they’re banning and people don’t need to have real proof of violations. I can never make another account.

- Designed to be deleted

Exactly because it’s weird, stupid and lame. Worst dating app.

- No customer service and got banned!

Got banned for no reason and have zero customer service. This app is inadequate and poorly designed !

- Banned

I got banned for no obvious reason, i emailed them and their response was the decisions are final.. terrible communication, what i didn't like specifically is that they didn't even look further into it.

- Bans for no reason, no warning, no appeals and after that, no refunds on prepaid services!

I downloaded the app and was enjoying it, I probably hadn’t messaged someone in a 2-3 weeks on the app and I find out that I was banned today. I bought the 6-month premium service. No refund through the Apple store. So basically they do whatever they want with no explanation (they don’t have to use names or scenarios they could just explain the term of service broken or could have provided some type of warning about what/why?) and then to finish all off they will keep your money. It’s a shame cause it’s a good app. Just has poor customer policies and a lazy approach to managing potential unwanted users.

- Blocked for no reason

What a joke. Blocked my number for no reason twice. I want my money back. Won’t give it to me. What a joke. Don’t download this app.

- They banned me for no reason.

I used hinge for years, following all guidelines. Haven’t used it in any malicious manner, yet they banned me for life without warning or ANY reason. I sent them an email and they never got back to me. I’m very disappointed and will not recommend this app to anyone.

- Excellent dating app

Lin this app you actually get matches

- Better then tinder that’s for sure

Better then tinder :)

- Yet another poor app

It’s funny reading these reviews and noticing which are legitimate reviews and which are fake reviews. Considering the fake ones are all cookie cutter copy/paste style reviews. I don’t understand how an app expects people to pay for it when it offers so little appeal. Sure it’s the app designed to delete - because after 5 likes (if that) you cant like anymore. Also I notice how the first 5 likes you get are all really attractive people with little actual info about them. And then after it’s regular looking people that have fully detailed profiles. Also been reading that you have to pay to see matches? If that’s the case this app is getting deleted. I dunno what’s worse? An app where you have to wait for women to message first or this... Extremely disappointed with these dating apps that just wanna juice you for money only to have fake profiles. No thanks. If I don’t pay for porn why would I pay for a date?

- Banned

I was a paying customer , I was banned and never told for what. There’s no way to contact them only sign in with a phone number. Waste of time . Do not recomendado this app.

- Deletion

This app removed me for saying that I had “Violated terms” when I have been a paid customer since the app came out. I have gone on dates from the app and I have NEVER had an issue with anyone I have met.


I had the app for 2 days and was banned. Due to their terms and conditions they cannot tell you the reason. Anyone can report you for ANY REASON, then boom you’re blocked and you cannot get a refund. Its Robbery!

- Deleted account for no apparent reason

My account was randomly banned and there appears to be no way to get it back, I enjoyed it up untill then :/

- So much better than any dating app

I honestly can’t get over how good this app is

- Quality over quantity

More quality than other dating apps and engaging then just an addicting swiping screen.

- love it

hands down one of the best dating apps out here. these men are all gorgeous PLUS so lovely and respectful, that’s a first. a couple simps on this app but i ain’t complaining. knock on wood i think i met my future hubby

- Junk app

Got logged out can’t log back in. Sent emails and no replies back.

- Hinge is the place for quality dates

When I became single I eventually downloaded Tindy, Hinge and saw a match maker. By far Hinge is out performing the others and introducing me to some fantastic people. Even when it doesn't work out people are friendly. 👍👍

- Permanently banned for nothing

This app allows people to report anybody and if it reaches a certain number, the app bans you for life. Still invites sexual predators though, because for them it’s just a matter of creating a new Facebook account or temporary phone number. For normal guys and gals, you can’t even make a case if you’re not on your best behaviour and tick off the wrong people.

- Cancer

Out of the 350 shordies I saw... maybe 3, and I mean literally 3 girls, were mildly palatable to my eyes. Absolutely insane.. I literally thought it was a prank lmaooooo Don’t get this app if ur looking for anything above a 6/10 mi bruvah

- Banned account with no rhyme or reason

Utterly disappointed in Hinge. Account was banned for absolutely no credible reason. I’ve read the terms and conditions as well as the community standards. Good luck trying to get any support. They have zero customer service.

- Non-existent customer support

I was on this app for a few months, met someone on a different app and then deleted this one. When I inevitably tried to reopen this app I accidentally selected the wrong age and became locked out, tried to contact support on many different occasions with absolutely zero response. It has been about a year and I’m still locked out due to age restrictions (I’m in my 30’s).

- Stupid app banned me

Used this app for a few months. I never message or reply with anything inappropriate even with pickup lines. Most of the time I just say “Whoah” or “Damn” and then next thing I know I’m apparently banned for no reason whatsover. Says I was against their terms of use. Does not make sense at all. No wonder “they’re designed to be deleted” cause this app bans anybody for nothing. Good at first but not worth it if everyone’s just getting banned for nothing inappropriate.

- Not trying to be mean

All my potential matches were heavy girls. Literally went through over 100 profiles and not one even average girl. Had he app not even 48 hours.

- Excellent App Ruined by Social Overflow

Hi. Guy here. Most guys who use tinder and okc like to abuse the swipe mechanics they place into the app. “Just swipe right until you match” showcases a shameless dropping of all standards in the hopes of getting laid, and I honestly don’t blame guys who do that until I realize they could have just worn a well-fitted shirt and gone to the gym once a week. This app is pretty great for removing that mechanic and forcing people to make a real move. That all being said, I’ve hit the X button so many times on this app, I’m pretty close to giving up. One can theorize it is about a social overflow from exhausted tinder and okc users but maybe it’s the other way around; matching but getting ghosted on tinder might be more depressing for people leaving the swipe happy apps than just not getting matched at all. I’m hoping hinge updates the algorithm to try to match people with higher standards towards each because I’ve had more success with other apps and I downloaded tinder, okc, and hinge at the same time.

- Doing justice to “designed to be deleted”

Hinge is honestly the best way to meet someone if you’re looking for a real relationship. I love how there are multiple conversation starters on a profile. My boyfriend and I would’ve never met if it wasn’t for this app and even though we stay in two different cities, it isn’t so bad and we complement each other. It’s definitely much more classier than the other dating apps and I could not be more grateful that I met him and he’s such an important part of my life. Ten minutes into our first date, I knew I wanted to be with him and make things work with him and so did he. Hence we deleted our profiles in the app together, doing justice to the “designed to be deleted” tag line. A big shoutout to hinge for playing this role. It was a little funny how the algorithm didn’t label either one of us as compatible to the other, but I didn’t mind. We’re just really glad that we found each other in this world of endless possibilities.

- Anniversary of our first date

So, let me first say that when I first tried hinge, I wasn’t sure at all. It gave a broad spectrum of locations at first so I was talking to people farther from me then I was even planning to try and be with/deal with. But I chatted and went on a few first dates but nothing really stuck. I really appreciated the check in with the app after the date and such. Then I saw his profile and I was immediately interested because of the extra layers of depth you can get and then when we started talking I still wasn’t sure, but online communication can be easily misunderstood and such so we went on our first date and we’ll I was kinda smitten. We honestly wouldn’t have meet via other dating apps because of this dating radius. He lives almost an hour away from me and well I wasn’t really looking in that direction for anyone anyway and yet here we are. I keep seeing the commercials for the app and we both have told people to give it a try. Because it’s different and it you are looking for depth and such, why not try something that gives you a fighting chance, because when nothing but pictures and a basic one liner are you’re options you don’t really feel motivated. Hinge helped me find someone that I highly doubt I would have found somewhere else. We are a couple months away from our 1 year anniversary but I figured since The anniversary of our first date is coming up, that I’d write a review.

- I Found My Forever

I got this app back in February after moving from Tinder not thinking too much of it(ik this is a late review but I just thought of it). I thought it was just going to be another dating/hookup app. Boy was I wrong. I had only had the app for 2 days before I got so many matches. It took me a bit to sort through them all but there was one girl that stood out to me in particular. We started talking and really hit it off. She only lived 30 minutes away from me and we planned to meet up halfway at a mall. We did some shopping together and hung out for a bit. I got her contact information and we started talking everyday and constantly hanging out before I got the will to ask her out in March. We’ve been dating since then and it has been the best decision of my life. Hinge has been such a life changer for me and made a huge difference in my life. It’s been nine months since and I can’t believe that I found my soulmate through a dating app. Thank you Hinge

- It can work (I was shocked too)

After being on/off dating apps for the last 7 years (primarily for the ego boost when I was feeling lonely) I had never met anyone from an app. I have had several relationships over the years and always wanted to meet someone “authentically”. First of all, I have to give props to Hinge because of all of the apps, I felt that everyone here was more interested in building a relationship rather than a hook up. It was so easy to strike up a conversation based off of the prompts or photos you can respond to. A+!! Anyway, I had hinge for a few months and deleted it because I again, didn’t plan to meet anyone. Downloaded it again in April and really started to get along with someone. After convincing myself to give in and see how thing online dating works actually works, I had an amazing time on my date! Fast forward 2 months and I’m now in a relationship with this guy I met online. As weird as it may feel, just do it. Once you’re in person with this individual you connected with online, it’s no longer an online concept but truly building an authentic relationship. The memories and experiences you make with this person are yours, just because you may not have run into them in person doesn’t discredit the experiences. I truly am so happy and have never been treated as great as I have been by this guy. It can work! You just have to let it and be open to the experience when you’re ready😊

- The algorithm is a mess now

I used to have the app (approx. 1 year ago) and it was extremely effective back then - to the point that I deleted it (congrats on bringing your slogan to real life). I re-downloaded it last week and was finding attractive women for the first few hours, after that it was astonishing how many people were outside of my preferences. There were tons of men (preference is only women), men who became women, and women who were significantly overweight (95%+ women after the first few hours. I mean no disrespect, just being honest). I had the app for the weekend and used it for a few hours each day. I have never ‘X’ so many people on any dating app.... I think after those original few hours of attractive people I may have only liked 4 or 5 people on my feed (one of which who actually turned out to be a cash grab to get me to pay $120 for private Snapchat). I tried adjusting my preferences to be more specific (like only certain ethnicities and made it a deal breaker), but I still continued to find several women outside of my preferences. It feels like this is a paywall to get to buy premium. TLDR; Hinge seems like a mess now and doesn’t actually take your preferences into consideration.

- They’re serious about you wanting to delete this app

Like many others, I had dabbled in Tinder and Bumble, only to drain my battery life faster than my desire to continue incessantly swiping. I was done with dating apps until I decided to give one more a fair shot, because if I’m going to spend time on an app, why not try one that may work? Enter Hinge. Results may vary, but for me personally, I had a match within a few moments of completing my profile, someone I still talk to now. Hinge swipes left on swiping at all, instead having you scroll down each profile and allowing you to “like” either a picture or a prompt they’ve filled out. Those likes are sent to them, and they can decide to either decline or continue a conversation with you. This allows for a much more personal and genuine way to connect with others compared to just a sloppy bio and random pictures. You can add a comment with your “like”, too, further personalizing your matches. This is the first review I’ve ever written on an app, and after how much time I’ve sunk into endlessly swiping with past apps, I thought I could spare a few moments giving my experience here to help others. They genuinely want you to find someone and delete the app like they say they do. I even got a free Preferred Membership, entirely unprompted, because they’re serious about wanting you to find someone. In short, give this app a shot. I’ve been wildly impressed with it so far.

- It’s no better than tinder

Update: after more use I’m annoyed that the algorithm is sexist and racist in that it has put me into a loop of who I am being shown. I’m only being shown East Asian men when I am pansexual and have no preference on looks. Devs, might want to fix that and stop telling me a good match is someone I’ve already said no to 6+ times. Also, in addition to a looking for section, should probably have a sexuality section as well since some people are anti bi- and pan- persons. Profiles are 6 photos and 3 brief (tweet length) random blurbs. It’s somewhat hard to get a sense of a person from that. Plus there’s no spot it indicate what the person it looking for (long term or short term relationship, hookup, friends) and I’m so tired of matching with someone just to immediately get a message “let’s hookup tonight” “I’m only on here for sex” or “Netflix and chill”. Let’s make the intent of people obvious when you limit how much you can use the app in a day. Other than that if you’re hot you’ll get plenty of interaction since this is an appearances first app and personality maybe.

- If someone claims you are a fake profile they will delete your account even after it’s verified.

I was very happy with this app until one day I received a notice that I could not login to my account due to “violations”. I have never posted or said anything inappropriate on this app so I was very confused as to why someone would complain about me. After a random person found my email and said there was a fake account of me (which there wasn’t) I began to realize that maybe someone was upset I didn’t continue a conversation with them and they filed a complaint. I sent in my phone number and a picture of my ID and I was allowed to use the app again. Unfortunately this has now happened a SECOND time and even after sending in information to verify my identity, I am now permanently banned. As Ironic as it sounds, this app does not protect their customers, they will listen to any complaint without properly verifying you and simply dismiss you. The verification process is a joke and clearly even after sending them my ID, my Instagram and phone number, that still is not enough. Be prepared to be labeled a catfish while using this app and HINGE will believe it.

- Just downloaded it but...

I’ve been thinking about dating apps on and off and decided to finally try hinge. All seems good at first, but I really don’t like the fact I can’t edit who I have to see based on height. I’m 5’3 and I wear a lot of high tops. I don’t like to wear heels but if I feel like I have to on a date bc the guy is 6’3, I won’t have much fun. I don’t like to discriminate on height but I really would prefer to have a shorter guy, and the fact I have to pay a monthly membership just to edit that isn’t that great. So far I’ve only gotten one match, and ofc you have to pay for boosters. But I’d rather have this over tinder or any other dating app. So far this is the only one I’ve seen that’s basically free. I haven’t gotten any messages yet so idk if that part is free or not, but I like the fact it’s a “designed to be deleted” dating app. Hopefully I’ll come back and write about my successes, since I am a broke college student and can’t afford to just spend money wherever.

- Banned out of spite because I didn’t get to people right away

I was the nicest, professional guy possible on the app. I also made sure I kept it that way especially out of respect toward my career. I matched with tons of women on Hinge and was loving it. However, my job has very serious hours so I couldn’t answer or engage in conversation right away all the time. I was inexplicably banned because I didn’t move forward with a few matches to dates. Imagine being reported for not wanting to date someone or not being able to converse with them right away lol. If they did this for every time a person did this or didn’t want to continue the convo, Hinge would have zero customers left. Hinge then didn’t even tell me why I was banned and just said their decision was final. Again, all because I wasn’t able to reach every match on there in time. Extremely poor customer service after I was loyal to Hinge for a while. What a disappointment. Customer service was shockingly poor and told me they wouldn’t be answering any emails from me after I inquired about why I was banned and unable to get my profile back, considering I was nothing but professional, kind and genuine.

- Best app out right now

Best dating app I’ve ever used. It doesn’t copy off of Tinder like the other newer dating apps by adding a simple swipe left and right future. It’s set-up in a way so that you can show real interest in a person and let people show real interest in you. I especially like the use of profile images and unique and fun ‘get-to-know-me’profile insights. I feel like this app is a hit. Also because it encourages you to use the call/video-call feature, which can be a fun way to get into dating during this pandemic. Something I hope would improve is if the creators would add a section where you can add more details to your profile without just leaving it to the question/answer sections to build your profile (a regular bio space would do), without that, profiles can seem a bit repetitive and limited- leaving you stuck wondering if you should dislike or like the profile. All in all, thumbs up :)

- Meh

I had high hopes for this app when I first started using it. I love the concept of matching by liking and commenting on someone’s profile, basically starting the conversation right away. That, however can easily be skipped by selecting “match” without writing anything, which basically defeats the purpose of the app and it’s attractiveness among the popular apps out there. It also does this weird thing sometimes, when you are looking at someone’s profile, it may pop a message at the top that says something like: “[your name] and [name of person whose profile you are looking at], we believe you should meet.” AND that “suggestion” is always bologna. In my experience, there’s nothing on their profile that interests me and, very often, the profile only has pictures that don’t show a person. It’s either random or based on a very flawed algorithm. This is all happening in an app that also doesn’t have many people in it, apparently. The company should definitely do more marketing to attract many, MANY more users. I’d also like to be able to filter out guys who don’t live in the same state I live, as I’m not interested in tourists or people visiting for a short while.

- Hinge

I’ve been using Hinge for a week and have loved most it so far! I’ve used bumble and tinder for a loooong time and it’s always filled with guys that say gross things and just want hookups. Also, on tinder especially, there is a huge range of people. I swipe through 50 before finding one I’m interested in. So far I’ve noticed that Hinge narrows your feed down to people that are your “type” or most likely to be interested in based off of interests, looks and activity. Also, they recommend certain people they think would be compatible with you. The profile in general is also great because there are convo starters, random facts about you & pictures. That way you get a sneak peak of a person more than just photos. And easy ways to start a convo! Plus you have a constant notification to respond back, therefore it bugs the person you are trying to talk to so they don’t ghost you and reminds you of who you haven’t responded to.

- Used to be a great app

I’ve been on and off this app for about a year now, this app used to great and I preferred it over any other dating app. There is so much potential on this app and great people but now... the other reviews are correct. I just downloaded the app again yesterday and just made a new account, not even a whole 24 hours later my account gets deleted and it seems I’m banned!! I was literally in the middle of writing a reply to a great guy I started talking to when the app suddenly closed! No big deal I thought at first, I tried logging back in and apparently my new account is not found. I’m assuming that means my account was deleted I wait a little bit and decided to make another account and hopefully find the guy I was in the middle of talking to, and now I can’t even make account!! It really does seem like I’ve been banned from the app and I have no idea why! I’m very disappointed with this app and that makes me so sad because this was once my favorite dating app. I hope Hinge gets their stuff together again and fixes this issue of deleting and banning people for no reason.

- No transparency regarding bans

I use hinge by far the least frequently amongst dating apps (Tinder, Bumble) and logged in this week to find by surprise I had been banned. When I inquired as to why i was banned I was informed that the decision was final and it was due to violating the TOS with no details. I have had one interaction in Hinge in the past several months, in which case I said “hello again” to someone I had previously matched with. That was a few weeks before I tried logging in again and with no other recent interactions I cannot imagine what ese could have led to the ban. There appears to be no actual vetting process regarding banning as to whether reports are real or false, and there is zero transparency regarding why you have been banned. I have never had the slightest similar issue with Bumble or Tinder and have interacted with dozens more interactions. Furthermore upon looking into this, I am definitely not alone. Dozens of users on reddit have reported the same thing with identical responses from the nonexistent customer service, both men and women. Hinge clearly needs to iron out their suspension/banning process or provide temporary suspensions while looking into the reality of the issues.

- No customer service and broken app

[UPDATE] Fake app. Even after bug fixes update and two weeks of being ignored by customer service about the issues meant below, nothing has changed. Do not support this app. Would’ve given this app a 4 or 5. It’s beautiful, the design is great and it’s interactive in a way more meaningful than a quick swipe left or right. However, despite getting push notifications of messages and matches the chat portion of the app does not show sent or received messages. It took three days for customer support to respond and they said “update it” although there was no update in the iOS store and I had said in the open ticket email that I had tried a fresh install multiple times. In the email I was promised they would get back to me “very soon,” even taking the time to make very bold. Two days later they seem to just be ignoring me, seeing as how I’ve yet to receive a single actual help message from them. This is an affront to calling it customer support and some of the worst experience I’ve had with a product that unfortunately I was excited to use, and according to my unusable matches I would’ve had success using

- Raleigh NC

I’m bored as hell cause of the Rona so now I find myself writing a Hinge review. Lord help me. I don’t understand the consistent hate on the recent review section. The app is dope and there’s hella beautiful women. I don’t know if they’re fake yet because I work a lot and my occupation isn’t affected by Rona right now so when I decide to hit them up maybe my opinion will change. Nonetheless, it’s not a “Christian Mingle” app named Hinge. There are baddies on there & I’m pretty sure not all of them want some tea and crackers. Definitely recommend to anyone trying to switch it up from Tinder or whatever else you use. Also... why are people asking for money back? I haven’t paid anything. I think you get like 7 likes a day which is enough because probably my favorite thing on the app is the fact you can send a like and then the woman “invites you to chat with them”. Hell, they might even hit you up first. Pretty dope & a good balance of “gender roles”.

- Honestly it works

Let me start out by saying I absolutely hated online dating and had tried a few other dating apps, with not a lot of success, and I didn’t like the format of those apps. When I first saw this one I thought huh app that’s meant to be deleted that’s clever. And initially only downloaded because of the catchy slogan. However, that sooner changed, and I opened the app and started my profile making which was super easy and fun to do! And way less stressful than any of the other apps I’ve used. Answer a few questions about myself, upload a few photos - boom done. The questions are what set it apart from other apps, because if a conversation hit a low with a person I always had the questions to go back to and ask them about. I had actual conversation with people instead of the usual “hey, you’re cute” “thanks” “yup” conversations I had. I only went out with two different people. And I’m actually now engaged to the man I went out with on the first date! He is the most amazing, sweet, kind man I’ve ever met. I don’t know maybe we just got lucky we both had profiles but I’m sure glad I downloaded this app. ❤️ There were issues with messaging/ notifications about not seeing them, and I would have to double check and see if the person actually messaged. But that was the only problem I really had with the app, and it didn’t bother me too much.

- Bad filters, racism, fake profiles, bad design

Updating: There are now only two filters you can use without paying, and one is a filter by ethnicity which—despite the canned PR text they use to reply about this—can be used for indulging racism. So, it’s free to be racist on Hinge, but if you want to filter by politics or smoking or whatever, they want cash first. (They also have a canned eyeroll-worthy script that totally fails to address this.) This is all super creepy, and I’ll never give them money. Not sure if Hinge is generating these or just profiting from strategically overlooking them, but this app has been flooded with fake profiles lately. If you have an eye for patterns and language choice, you can tell. I resent it; it feels like testing to see how we react without our consent (and getting bad data from it anyway) and utterly wasting our time. One of few precious advantages of this app was fewer fakes than other apps. And despite the app’s carefully chosen and totally misleading marketing tagline, it seems designed to get users to spend more time on it, or spend money to have any meaningful use of filters. You’re already profiting off our data; this is all just greedy.

- Mad

Why I still got this if it’s meant to be deleted?!The men in my area treat this app like bumble...I text first and get no response. It’s disappointing, because the quality of people on this is app is way better than tinder, but unfortunately almost everyone on here STILL just wants to hook up...that’s it. Hinge does the worst job of finding compatible people for you. I’m looking for a relationship, yet you’ve referred me to a dude that has “I would never bring you home to meet my parents” as his prompt. Something needs to be done about the algorithms because they’re NOT accurate. Suggestion, make this app a little bit more strict on who can join in regards to actual people that are interested in dating and relationships. There are too many idiots on these dating apps that only want sex and it’s a shame because there are apps available, that are solely for the purpose. Leave the bloody dating apps for people that actually want to DATE. Hinge was my last hope, but at this point it’s proving to not be worth it. Practice what you preach...if it’s meant to be deleted, give us quality suggestions of people that are actually serious on this app.

- Hinge is limited

It lacks the ability to truly write a profile worth reading. It’s so limited users cannot detail much outside of physical appearance to others. Many of the questions I answered and would prefer to be visible remain private and I cannot change this in settings as there is no option to do so. In 1 month I have been contacted by multiple users from another country with fake profiles. Another man said he was 54 and told me he was actually only 24 when we emailed which was outside of range of my restricted settings. Additionally the restricted settings do not work as I keep seeing profiles from people all over the US and world when I am looking to meet someone within 20 miles. This is frustrating and I feel a complete waste of money and my time. So far, I have not been impressed with Hinge at all and I don’t feel safe using it as the fake profile users are able to access photos which puts me at risk for them to use facial recognition and potentially access my facebook or linked in acct’s with personal information. It doesn’t appear to be a place I will ever be able to find any kind of real relationship.

- Could be better

Don’t get me wrong. This is by far my favorite dating app. The platform allows for far more matches than any other dating app I’ve tried. I’ve been on more dates with this app than any other app combined. The subscription is well worth it. My one complaint is the sheer number of fake profiles and scammers. There needs to be a better screening system in place. Once you’ve basically reached the end of everyone in your radius, you are really only left with the new profiles created each day. Half of those are usually some type of scam. They are pretty easy to spot since it’s usually a very attractive girl with the same broken English answers as every other fake profile. There needs to be better means for authentication. Lastly it would be amazing if they could develop a software for removing all the stupid snapchat filters on every single profile. Filtered pictures are the absolute bane of the online dating world.

- 99% sure I met The One on Hinge

First off, I do not write reviews. But this app deserves it. Within 12 hours of downloading Hinge, I matched with a girl who attended a college near mine. Hinge apparently matches you based on similar characteristics. For some context, I have had Tinder and Bumble for years, but would always match and never meet up or end up being incompatible with the few dates I did end up going on. This app makes it much easier to start a conversation and match with the right people. We met up the next day for our first date, and we absolutely hit it off. I knew immediately that I found someone special. We ended up having 5 dates the first 7 days! Who knows, maybe it will work out in the end or maybe it won’t, but this app helped me find someone I care deeply about who has changed my life, and I am so grateful for that. Thank you Hinge, you made the hours and hours on online dating apps worth it.

- I deleted the app!

So first I’d like to say I’ve tried almost all the online dating places and dating apps. It’s a war out there and for the past seven years I dated on and off using online dating or dating apps but the relationships always turned sour and I would have to reinstall all my apps. It was always the same until I downloaded Hinge! I talked to a few different people but only met one. And I only met one because he seems to maybe be the one! We’ve been together for almost 8 months and are moving in together and this is by far the most healthy honest relationship I have ever been in and he says the same. If you’re serious about dating not just hooking up and playing the field this app is for you! And just like all dating in real life or online you do have to put yourself out there. So message that guy reply to that girl you never know they might just be the one that get you to delete this app 😉

- A broken Hinge

I was an active member of this app for a little over a year. I enjoyed being on it and thought it was more unique than the other hive dating apps you find. Last week, I was kicked off of the app and not allowed to sign back in. After speaking with support, I was informed that my account was terminated due to violations of the terms and conditions..? I was not informed regarding any such thing before hand, and was blind-sided by this. I was offered no evidence on their claim and was left feeling guilty over such statements that weren’t supported. In my correspondence, my requests were ignored and I was told they would no longer look into the matter regarding these claims made against me. It’s clear that Hinge support cares little about their users, so I would strongly recommend you consider over dating apps! Many new ones out now offer the same if not better platform, and I would try your luck there!

- Sad and Pathetic...

I’ve been on this app for about a week, and haven’t heard back from anyone I’ve messaged. And I paid for the subscription. I also wrote meaningful, creative messages pertaining to people’s profiles. I probably messaged over fifty people. Yet, I haven’t heard or seen any messages back. I also messaged my ‘most compatible’ person, but it’s all crickets. I am disappointed to say the least. It feels as if something nefarious is at play here. For an app that claims it’s ’meant to be deleted’ they sure seem to love that recurring subscription. I’m dissatisfied and upset to say the least. I understand that most people I message won’t get back to me, but to not have a single message back? It’s seems super suspicious to me. I like the concept of Hinge, but with this experience I just don’t know. I definitely would like a refund, if possible. I’m seriously debating deleting this app and never using it again. I might also actively advise friends and family against using this app. Again, I’m just suspicious of why I haven’t seen any messages or any likes. I’m not trying to be conceited. I expect this type of experience from Tinder, but not Hinge.

- Found the love of my life on here

I have been single for 4 years and tried many dating apps but I haven’t been able to match with anyone. Then I found this app and decided to try it out. Tbh if this app didn’t work, I would have lived my life a single man. So anyway, I tried it out and within a day of sending likes, I found a woman that I was immediately attracted to. I was so surprised that she answered back because no one else would. So we chatted for a “little while” and she ended up giving me her number without me asking her first. Then we iMessage each other and start to FaceTime each other as well and after a couple days, we fell for each other. Then we met in person and I asked her to be my gf...and she said yes right away. I rated it 5 stars because this app allowed me to be with the love of my life which I thought I would never find. This truly was the app that was meant to be deleted. Thank u, Hinge, Inc.


It’s unfortunate that I have to write this review since I was really enjoying the hinge app! On multiple occasions I have been locked out of the app for days at a time unable to login via Facebook or any other method, which is not ideal when you’re actively messaging people. Most recently I was locked out and finally able to log back in after a day or so. Once I got back into the app, I apologized to the people I matched with and let them know I’m not someone to intentionally ignore people for days at a time. Fortunately for me, some of the conversations started again but then.. BAM tragedy struck again and the app logged me out. Only this time when I attempted to log back in, the app requested that I fill out all of my preferences and general information again. So I guess my previous matches are lost to the great hinge abyss...😕 I reached out to support to no avail. I even read through some reviews and added “review” to the subject line when reaching out to hinge support again m, but no luck. Hope the get this figured out and in the meantime I will be recreating my profile.

- Worst dating app I’ve tried.

Don’t be fooled by the hype. This app does have great features and a slick look. But good luck find ANY interaction on it. I made the mistake of paying for the extra features and got absolutely nothing out of it. In the end, I’ve had far better luck on other dating apps without spending a dime. Don’t waste your time or money here. This app DOES NOT WORK. UPDATE: It’s clear this app is either totally broken or a flat out SCAM. A month on this app and NOT ONE like, message or ANY type of interaction. And keep in mind that I paid for the extra features. (And yes, my profile is full of photos and I filled everything out. I’ve also sent many likes with comments/questions. I may be an undesirable person, 😂 BUT, I get plenty of interaction on other apps) Hinge “conveniently” doesn’t handle refunds. And of course Apple refused to give me a refund, via their useless automatic refund request process. So, ⚠️BEWARE⚠️ Do not pay for the upgraded features, it’s not worth it and you will not be able to get that money back. Again, this app is totally broken or is an outright scam. “Designed to be deleted” is the perfect slogan for this garbage.

- Wow. So different from the others

I was getting really exhausted from dating apps, then I downloaded Hinge. I feel like this app brings the getting to know someone stage to another level. They give you a bunch of questions to answer and they highlight pictures AND your personality (by making people scroll through the pictures and your answers side by side). What a simple concept and yet no other dating app has been able to capture that. I also love the idea that you’re not allowed to just “swipe”, you have to actually like something on that persons page (although I would change that to mandatory like and comment on the thing that you liked - that’s where the real conversation happens); I noticed that I won’t even accept someone who just “likes” something any more, they have to say something about why they liked it. Gives it way more depth and it’s more personal :) thanks Hinge!!

- Best dating app for people in their late 20s and 30s

Are you tired of combing through “profiles” with so little key information on them on Tinder just to realize the guy you swiped on is a smoker and a foot shorter than you? Or getting bombarded with dms on Match from ppl that don’t even meet my search criteria (Yea I’m talking about you thirsty divorced 45 year old dads)? Who wants to pay a hundred bucks to become a member of an elitist dating app like The League with only a handful of actual members on it? The Hidge app is user friendly and stands out from the pack in a few simple, but critical ways. The 3 questions you answer on your profile gives just enough of a preview of someone’s personality, priorities, and humor. Added with a handful of pics, and basic info on lifestyle/demographics makes this one of the easiest apps to find some one compatible that is just outside your friend circle. So thank you Hinge for existing!

- Best Dating App For Me

This is probably one of the few daring apps that work for me. I am not extremely good looking but I am also not ugly. I am just like an every day normal looking guy. But I am very charismatic, funny and friendly. This is one of the few apps that allow me to message someone and add a bit of wit/charisma to my comments rather then relying on how good looking I look in my photo. This is my second time downloading the app. When i first downloaded the app it was really early which meant there were few users in my area. Now that it had gained more traction there are a lot of users. I have gained many matches in the one week of re-downloading it and have landed 2 dates so far. The way the app is designed it gives a peak into someone’s personality and makes you really interact with someone. It is well designed. I don’t give out 5 stars but this app is close to almost getting 5 stars.

- Absolute garbage and shady business practices

Here’s the email I sent to Hinge which sums up this review. And there should be less than one star: I downloaded the Hinge app, and a few days later signed up and paid for a subscription, I was charged and then BLOCKED on the app. No matter what I do, it does not recognize me. I tried re-installing, nothing works. I requested a refund through Apple. And yet, I still receive emails saying I matched with someone. I have read this has happened to other people. So, what is your explanation that you would charge me and then immediately block me but still send me emails saying I’ve matched with someone? What kind of shady business practice is that? I want to be removed completely from your app and emails. There should be absolutely no trace of my email address: (not showing here). I don’t care if I’ve been banned, but you continuing to send me emails saying I matched with someone is ludicrous. I’m going to start trashing your company and business practices on every website and App Store I can think of until I hear a satisfactory answer for you, which I know will never happen.

- Not a fan.

I started this app about 7-8 months ago & i had two decent dates (2 different men). We ended up not having similar beliefs & goals etc. so mutually & politely stopped dating (1st guy). The second guy had 2 kids with two different women and he kept mentioning that he wanted me to have his third child. I had to stop talking to him because there ended up being more red flags. My biggest issue w/ this app was that the guys on here seemed to be immature. It’s hard to gauge which apps are for people looking for substantial relationships or if the guys just want to hook up. it just didn’t seem like the guys wanted to meet up towards the end of me using this app. maybe they were lazy, idk. also, I live in NJ & the majority of the guys who would show up were NYers... which is an inconvenience (for both people) when they don’t have a car or expect you to go out there to meet them. (Tolls to enter through the tunnels are ~$15 plus gas and possibly parking garages etc) i wish there was a way to filter just NJ men or whatever. Yeah, the app wasn’t very different that Bumble. And Bumble was a dud.

- Everything I’ve ever wanted in a dating app.

For a long time, I’ve felt punished by the black-box algorithms on Tinder and Bumble. Was I not attractive enough? Did I not shell out enough money? Did someone block me? Why was I only getting a handful of matches in a month? Hinge just feels real. It doesn’t feel like you’re fighting tooth and nail for attention, it feels like starting a conversation with a friend. People on Hinge feel like actual people rather than just caricatures of people defined by a single vague tag line. The conversations I have on here are always much more authentic. I’ve even used the video chat feature a couple times which has been really fun. My only note to the devs is that I’ve run into a minor bug that prevents the text box from expanding with longer messages, so I’ve had to copy and paste some messages from Notes back into the app and then send. Otherwise, 10/10!

- Fake Profiles! Beware!!

Omg, the site has potential to be good if they would have a better way of vetting profiles! In less than a week and never in my online dating experience, have I experienced fake profiles! Ok, I’ve heard of men being scammed but it almost happened to me with 4 profiles in less than a week! Beware if they ask you to get Google Hangouts! That’s when I learned of the fake profiles, from reading the reviews. I also didn’t like the fact, I couldn’t delete my pictures before deleting my profile! It kept asking me “from location do I want to replace the pic”. I should be able to delete my pics. Who knows if the pics are being posted/used for the fake profiles??? Please advise!!! I do not give permission for my pics to be used for any advertisement or false advertisement whatsoever related to this or any other site! I don’t want them or any information used without my permission! It’s truly sad that one can be trying to find a partner with good intentions and someone in a third world country can use it to scam or attempt to scam innocent good people!! Please advise and have better security measures!

- Love the app. One issue

I’ve been using the app for a few months and I love a lot of features about it. I like being able to instigate a conversation without an initial app, I like being able to see who’s interested in you on the free version. I like the layout etc. The annoying issue I have is the location identification on profiles. In a big city with a small radius for searches, the neighborhood location probably works great. I live in Utah. There are a few decent sized cities in a chain from north to south and a ton of smaller towns packed between the cities. So when the location identifier says my match lives in “Downtown,” that could be any number of the cities I mentioned. Or it will give a random neighborhood name for a city and I have no idea if that’s down the street or fifty miles away. Maybe keep the neighborhood name but add the city as well? Some kind of solution would be nice Thanks

- Got so BUGGY I cannot use

This app was actually my favorite of all the dating apps. Had some meaningful conversations and connections using it. HOWEVER, during the past few weeks the app is not loading the messages I receive! I can see notifications on my home screen when I get them, but the chats do not update inside the app. This has become a frustrating issue as I cannot even use the app anymore. How do you respond if you cannot see the messages you get?! It says “failed to load messages, tap to retry” in red inside some chats, yet that feature does not fix anything. Have tried all the steps suggested on the support pages: log out and back in, delete app and download again. Did NOT work! My phone is also the latest iphone with up to date software so the issue is clearly the app. Then I wrote a message to Hinge customer service explaining everything including what I tried, yet they only sent me an automated reply suggesting the same things on their support FAQ that I already told them I tried multiple times! Really upset about how this app has taken such a turn for the worse.

- Best Dating App

Don’t waste your time with any other app. I used it for a month and found an amazing person. I deleted the app. The app is easy to use and it asks a few, but very important questions about preferences. It was so important to me to find a man that didn’t smoke or do drugs and the app allowed me to filter men who didn’t match this preference. Overall, I went on dates with 2 different men. The second guy I went on a date with was the one :) You will have to spend a lot of time on the app, but it’s totally worth it. Be patient. Also, it’s really important to have good pictures. Do some homework online and find out what’s a good picture. Elite daily has a great article about what the best hinge pictures are and it’s based on Hinge data. Find the article. If you have degree and a job make sure you state it. It’s okay if you are student, but indicate it. Trust me, it’s important. To the developers: great app, but work on the Most Compatible feature. I’m a Master’s educated woman who turned down everyone who indicated drug use. I assure you a 4/20 friendly pizza driver is not my Most Compatible. *To everyone else reading this review. The Most Compatible feature is just the app sending one person they think you will match well with. It won’t affect your app experience if the person isn’t a good match since there are a lot of options.

- The End of Beginnings

Usually this is the beginning of the end A man that I may be fond of begins to love me, and it becomes clear to me that I don’t love him back His affection makes me feeling like I’m drowning I begin to distance myself And he can tell This makes him sad I care I try to give him a shot I worry he will miss the mark But I give him the benefit of the doubt anyway & time passes I feel guilty for letting it go that far This was my previous story BUT no longer. Because now I’ve reached the end of beginnings A man I was initially skeptical of only because I met him on a dating site began loving me two months in I deleted the app the first time after we matched. I only said a few words because of my level of comfort I felt so silly for using a dating app, I could simply go out and meet someone naturally... But then I made a profile again and coincidentally... we matched AGAIN And it instantly became clear that I love this man back His affection makes me feel like no other I begin to move in closer And he can see That makes me happy I’m motivated to be the best partner I can be, because we are now a team I know this will work. So I’ll give my all Knowing time will pass And we will grow stronger I feel excited for how far we will go Because this is simply... My final story. The end of beginnings. Thank you Hinge

- One small bug fix would mean 5 stars

I love the design of the app, and it’s clearly superior to any alternative I’ve used. Most of the other complaints about the app relate to business-case decisions that Hinge has made to try to optimize for certain things in its dating market. My only real issue is that hinge doesn’t save the profile I’m on when I toggle to using another app. Sometimes someone will post their Instagram handle, and then I’ll go to look at their Instagram feed, but when I toggle back, they’ve been replaced by someone else. I can’t think of any design benefit to this change, and I do find it annoying. At other times, I see a profile I like and I want to compose a thoughtful comment, but if I have to take a phone call or do something at work, I lose the chance. It makes me feel like I’m rushed to respond to someone I find compelling, which I don’t like in an app that is otherwise geared towards the contemplative.

- It’s ok, needs to let me use options!

I like this app, it seems to be more mature than Tinder. I like that you can see pictures of the actual person, and it lets you say whether or not you smoke or drink, but it won’t let you filter the people being shown to you unless you buy premium! I’m not a smoker and will never be one, nor will I ever go out with one. I don’t want to have to pay $13 for a month of premium just to see people I might match with because they don’t smoke. Another gripe I would have is to make a part for a bio, they give you 3 prompts to answer in your own words but the answers are limited to 150 characters and are kind of vague. Lastly, I would suggest that the app doesn’t force you to have 6 photos or connect to Facebook. It’s good to connect and verify that someone is a real person, but I keep my Facebook private and it goes just a little too personal for my taste. I usually keep 3-4 pictures of myself on dating apps like these, and forcing me to have 6 is a lot.

- Far better than anything else you’ll find on the App Store

Let me start off by saying how jaded I am with dating apps and dating in general it’s been a complete chore to me if anything and many other apps are very poorly designed and clearly put making money over quality and happiness of users. Tinder was always a complete pain to use everyone on the app never wanted to talk for more than a few messages and they most certainly would never want to meet in person maybe it’s just a different crowd but Hinge is so much better my cousin literally met his sole mate on this app and just about every woman I’ve matched with on hinge has been very cool and very nice to talk to seriously if no one else will tell you I will. Delete tinder and any other app this app is so much better. Also I know it seems like I’m being paid to say this but my experience has been nothing but good.

- Good app, bad customer service and security

I liked the design of this app much better than its competitors, and overall had better luck with matching with decent people that I had good conversation with. Based on that, I’d give it 5 stars. However, I submitted two reports against an individual I matched with who began harassing me via text message, even using other phone numbers and apps in an attempt to contact me after I blocked his main number, before we even had a first date. I expressed my concern that this person could still be on Hinge or sign up again at a later date had he already deleted his account, because his behavior was inexcusable and made me extremely uncomfortable and unsafe. After going several days without so much as an acknowledgement that my report had been received and they’d look into it, I decided to delete the app. I was lucky to have some good experiences, but this one was bad enough to make me question staying loyal to a company that doesn’t make me feel like they value their users’ privacy and security.

- 5/5

I never leave reviews. But I think this app deserves one. I’ve been an on and off dating app user for a handful of years and I can say I have been pleasantly surprised with the layout and concept of this app. Took me a second to figure out. But I absolutely love the questions and topics you get to choose. It opens the door RIGHT up for easy conversation. And you get to know a little bit about their personality and what they like right off the bat without having to wait an agonizing couple days of 20 questions. And I love that you get to pick what you “like” on their page. And also that you get to know what they like as well. Tells even more about them/you. I could go on but that’s what I love most. Keep up the great work by making this so user friendly and such a good outlet to meet quality people looking for mostly the same thing. Bringing people together, love it. Thank you.

- Used to Be Great

Hinge used to be the best dating app on the App Store. Recently, however, it seems like at least 5 to 10 times a day, I’m seeing profiles put together for escorts (that are also very likely bots). All of their responses to the Hinge profile prompts reference snapchat accounts and have obscene, sexual language. Worse, the responses are all the same (and contain obscene words), so it would be very easy for Hinge to codify rules and program these profiles out of the platform, but they haven’t, and this has been going on for weeks, despite reporting every profile I see like this. The profiles are also filled with either sexually suggestive or outright NSFW photographs. I’m a male that is interested in dating females, so I’m not sure if females looking for males to date on the platform are seeing similar profiles created for that particular audience, but it is becoming on my end of the platform. It’s a shame Hinge has let themselves fall victim to this and are doing nothing about it, because even as big a cesspool as Tinder is, and while it is filled with bots and scammers it doesn’t have this issue with obscene profiles.

- The only dating app worth using

Edit 3: Thanks for adding the Pause feature! 5 stars Edit 2: issue in edit 1 was apparently due to a visibility bug, which they've now resolved for me. There were also some major display issues a few versions ago. There needs to be thorough and proper testing before a release so the bugs are ironed out, please! 4 stars Edit: Whoa what's this, this app apparently has a "newbie boost" akin to Tinder and Bumble? The differences being it lasts for a few weeks but afterwards there's no way to return to it? I'll confirm with customer support but meanwhile I'll have to shave off 2 stars until I can verify Hinge hasn't resorted to this. 3 stars Original review: Hinge, with its smart design, intuitively solves many issues that plague other apps. The liking system provides both profile insight and convo starters. The turns system and persistent badge notifications when it's your turn ensures convos don't die out quickly. The algorithm seems smarter than the norm, and fairer, too, as visibility seems sufficient without paying, and match rate and quality don't seem to wane following registration. Overall this is a much higher-quality app than other apps of this category I've seen, and if it avoids stooping to the low level of Tinder and Bumble, Hinge will see success for a long time to come. Impressed. 5 stars

- Decent app, can’t update profile pic

Been on several dating apps and this is BY FAR the best free one out there. The quality so far is much better than everything else I’ve experienced. Certainly less crappy guys to sift through, although I have to say, the 2 or 3 I’ve talked to offline have all been SO flaky, which I thought was a weird consistency. The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because it won’t let you update your profile pictures. I connected mine to Facebook, and when I updated my Facebook profile pic, not only did it not update on the Hinge app, it didn’t even update when I disconnected and reconnected my Facebook 20 times. AND to top it off, I reached out to their “support center” twice, and no one ever got back to me. It’s super irritating because I can’t even add the photo manually that I want either. I want accurate photos and me with my long hair is no longer accurate... please fix this!

- Beware of SCAMMERS!!!

I’m REALLY disappointed with the functionality of this app. Despite my discovery mileage being set to max 80 miles, and selecting “deal breaker”, I’m still shown profiles of men that turn out to live thousands of miles away. The big red flag is that these men can somehow select their location as being local to me, and I only find out they are far away after having to interrogate them. Isn’t one’s location in apps like these based on gps?? I end up having to play “detective” with these fakes. Oh and they often have elaborate... like they are originally from Germany, but grew up and now lives in Minneapolis and are currently working on a job in Cape Town South Africa but will be back in the states at the end of the month and would like to meet if things work out between us (LOL!!). Also, they want to talk offline way too soon, one guy even asked me for my address, he wanted to send me a gift...Um, NO, too CREEPY!!! I sent several glitch complaints to Hinge but they make it laborious to follow up, having to fill out a form etc.. I’m FED UP and deleting this app, it’s too much work to figure out who is real!!

@EsoTherapist In Europe, Tinder is more for normal dating and relationships too because other apps like hinge bumble etc are little known there. So most singles congregate on tinder or okc, tinder is the most popular. But in North America, I think Tinder has pretty sleasy dudes.

Timotheus Lockhart

@okcupid @hinge @Tinder @BagelMeets @PlentyOfFish @bumble These apps on your cell phone are all shortcut relationships apps that mostly lead to hookups or toxic relationships. They make people believe in searching in a false reality of love. Simple Dating Apps truly don’t work.
