RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
I banged one girl off hinge, but otherwise it's totally useless.

I have probably 75-100 matches and the girls straight up do not respond to anything.

I'm using the same profile pics and the same style of openers as Tinder, and a lot of the girls are the same girls on both apps, so I don't know what's up, but the engagement is substantially lower on hinge.

Hopefully they have some clever developers working on this problem, because it's a well done app, good branding, simple to use, and it attracts quality girls. But the social dynamics portion is not yet dialed.

Also, hot 18-22 year olds don't use "dating apps" like hinge. They use tinder because it's "not a dating app."

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
Tried this today since you can login without facebook now. Nothing but fatties and old chicks. Nothing under 30 shown to me so far.

Oh wait here's an under 30, she's fat. Angry

I thought it was funny when one of the fatties put down "fear of whales" as her irrational fear. Laugh

This happened to me recently when I made my newest account (all fat chicks coming up). Once you cycle through them, the better talent starts to appear. This didn't happen when I made my first account ~8 months ago.

Are you in a major city?

Nope, there's barely 250k population here.


You're right though, the matches are much batter now that I'm 25 deep!

Doesn't sound like anybody has gotten any pussy off of it, only matches. This is a waste of time until somebody scores

I did long ago. I didn't realize it was still a functional app until this bump.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
Hinge is the best app in NYC-surprised this thread hasn't gotten more action. I've gotten upwards of 20 bangs off it, I don't really use anything else besides Hinge and Instagram for online lays.

hinge has by far the best quality. For some reason it filters out the uggos, most girls are 7-8 range.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
It’s better than Bumble and it was on its way to pass tinder but it’s recently put unlimited likes behind a paywall. Women won’t pay so it’s probably started it’s decline.

Best app in NYC by a country mile. Bumble has gone downhill tremendously and Tinder has been mediocre for a long time now.

The reason this thread hasn't gotten more action is because Hinge is basically only good in NYC. Tertiary dating apps are extremely city-specific.

I have used it in both SF and Pittsburgh. Way, way worse results for me than Tinder, and worse quality than both Tinder and Bumble.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
Hinge is a good app. Match (same company that owns Tinder) bought it a few months ago. Don't expect the good times to last for much longer.

It is only good (for both volume and attractive level) in popular cities (think NYC, LA, London, etc.) Doesn't have much of a Latin America user base yet

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
My experience on Hinge is that I have matched with more girls then bumble or tinder by far, but the response rate has been very low and the ability to convert those matches to dates is almost zero.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
Hinge is good in NYC. Getting a bunch of matches and dates but nothing better then 7s though. There's also not a ton of profiles but all have to be active based on the amount of responses i get.

Seems Hinge is popular among Jewish American chicks if that's your thing. Many of them are very attractive. Especially the Russian ones.

Tinder is much better for expats, travelers, diversity, etc still but theyre are a bunch of dudes paying to be up top its hard to get matches and a lot of girls aren't responding.

I put myself on Tantan recently just to see how it goes haha

Agreed on low response rate. I think last time I had it I got 15 matches or so in the first week and like... one of them responded. Anyone have ideas on why the response rate is so low compared to Tinder?

@corsega

What are you opening with? My response on Hinge is much higher then Tinder. Hinge gives you much more to go on when you start a convo

@TheBMan

TanTan is Chinese. There are tons of Chinese students and immigrants here who use it in NYC. Along with a few other Asian girls. Got like 8 matches so far but not much luck.

Non-needy assumption opener that begs a question. Same opener style I use on Tinder, to much better results there.

Might have to install Hinge again and see if I face the same issues as before. I ended up deleting/uninstalling because I got into some strange pattern of being shown 11 fatties in a row (literal 3/10 hambeasts), with one hot chick interspersed, and as such, stopped getting any matches at all.

From what I noticed with Hinge, they tend to give you most of the hot girls once you sign up. After that, they stash then in the back so you have to swipe through a bunch of fatties first.

*sigh* the typical app ploy.

Might be worth resetting account every week. I'll install again and see how I do.

edit: they limited it to 10 daily likes again? It used to be 10 likes, then it was unlimited, now it's limited again.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
Well can't speak for anyone else but Hinge with a little bit of daygame has been super effective for me.

Even with the 10 like limit I still get a fair amount of matches every week. I think it helps that I'm tall and girls can filter through height on the app.

I've been on it for about 5-6 weeks now. Took a quick count of everything. 210 matches so far. And out of those I was able to get their number 39 times. Which is 18.5%. I'd say that is way better then anytime I've been on Tinder.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
Hinge in NYC is a goldmine. I don't live in NYC full-time but when I come I can book dates for every night of the week easy. My stock on this app is much higher than it is in L.A. and I get a lot more likes. In NYC, 7 is prob my average but I went on a date with a proper model from the app and she liked me first. Was chatting with a news figure's daughter too but she fell off. A lot of brunette/Jewish girls on the app, which my thing.

For stats, I'm a good-looking well educated black guy. 5' 11". Early 30s. On Tinder, I'm more sexual. On Hinge, I'm witty but to the point. The only problem is that girls my age tend to want something more serious. But 25-28 year old girls I've had a lot of success with.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
This is my experience on Hinge:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ow7u059objazae...e.mp4?dl=0

I get 10-12 bottom of the barrel girls. 3s and 4s out of 10. Then, I get one 8.5-9/10. Then, 10-12 more bottom of the barrel girls.

Repeat ad nauseum. No middle of the road girls. Just the extremes.

This has persisted over many months, despite deleting my profile and recreating it several months later.

Something is fucked with their shuffling algorithm for my account. This can't be chance. I know it's San Francisco, but there's no way it's this bad.
