Hinges Review: Should You Try This Dating App? We checked it
Maybe not quite As serious as Match.com is, Hinge is still aimed at people who want to put some serious effort into their dating life. The app has a long list of prompts to build your profile, and those you meet can interact with each other’s photos, videos or quick replies to start a conversation. When creating your profile, you can answer questions using text or audio, which adds another level of depth compared to other apps that are mostly photo-based.
As for filters and settings, you’ll be able to set location, age, and gender options with a free Hinge membership, but you’ll need to pay for a premium service to get more specific options like height, political views, and whether or not they smoke. eat With a free membership, you will still be able to display your basic information (sexuality, gender, occupation, education, religious beliefs, hometown, dating intentions, political affiliations, etc.) and view information from other users.
On a perk worth mentioning: Some dating apps charge for finding places outside of your home base, but Hinge doesn’t. This means that if you are traveling or planning to move to a new city, you can change your location in the app to view people in that particular area. A new city can open up opportunities to encourage you to change or expand your life—just make sure you’re open and honest with the people you talk to about where you live and what your intentions are.
