RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
Lot of forum members mention, in this thread as well as others, that Hinge has been the best app so far. For me its been quite the opposite.

Even though I use this app way less than Tinder or Bumble, I have not got any match on this. And I get some positive results on Tinder(mostly boost) and few times on Bumble. Also some matches in other apps.My quality of matches varies a lot.

I don't know what's wrong on Hinge. I have put 6 top 10-20% photofeeler( 10 votes rated) pics. These same pics have got me matches on Tinder/Bumble/CoffeeandBagels/Happn/OkCupid.

The pics are as follows: I have a nightclub pic with a Dos xx in hand, a suit pic, a pic in tracks and aviators as if I am about to go on a trek, a smiling selfie with a sports jacket, a chill pic infront of a famous mural wall and a mountaineering pic outside of final camp before summit. I think the profile seems chill.

I tried to make the writing part funny or at least try to capture attention:

A life goal of mine : 'To sit on a Whale's back'

The backstory to one of my pictures is: 'I climbed 6200 mts to run away from a mountain wolf. Serious.' (referring to the mountaineering pic)

Let's debate this topic: 'Chicken or Egg. I eat former more than the later'

Whenever I send girls the 'like' message on Hinge, I message them related to what they have on their profile and make it sound unique or somewhat funny. I also end the message with some sort of 'get to know each other over so and so'(usually some common stuff which they have mentioned on their profile).

Yet no responses. I have no idea what I might be doing wrong.

I am 34, but 27 in the app. I look young. I am 5'7 but height mentioned is 5'9. In the pics I am fit. My ethnicity is North Indian and I look like a mix of Bollywood actors Sharukh Khan and Salman Khan.I say this because lot of people including ladies have told me the same. Lot of times girls also think from my app pics that I am Hispanic/Arab/Persian.
My location is Houston.

Literally every guy saying this is in New York City.

It's all about location.

Yes been testing it in nyc, hinge is a goldmine in nyc. Much better results than tinder and bumble.

The only thing that came close to this for me was when CMB had that video option. That was a freaking goldmine like no other.

Tinder and Bumble are nearly dead in NYC (lots of matches, but many go nowhere). I downloaded Hinge in 2018 and it has been fantastic. Tons of matches and bangs.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
I'm not managing jack shit on Hinge and that's saying a lot. Even Tinder and Bumble do more for me despite the fact that it's (((current year))).

I can't finger the root cause of this problem but I'm legitimately perplexed. Women don't give me any love on there. Maybe my profile isn't optimized for Hinge?

Anyway, I started sending offensive messages to women (I mean cocky offensive), and that raised the response rate from 0 percent up to 30 percent... What am I missing here?

Cors, I live in a small town of approx. 100,000-250,000 people. And I've got nothing at all on Hinge in terms of matches, although women appear to be on it in my town.

edit: I have the impression that there is something very nefarious about these algorithms that all these sites use....

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
I downloaded Hinge last Monday. So far one week in I'm seeing great results. Much better than Bumble or Tinder. I'm in a small city in Southwestern Ontario.

I used my maximum 10 likes each day on Monday and Tuesday. I think on Thursday I liked a few more profiles. Over the week I had 6 girls like my profile.

I ended up with 11 matches: 9 that I liked first and 2 out of the 6 girls that liked my profile first.

3 never responded to my initial message. I stopped responding in 3 conversations. I set up 3 dates. The last 2 I'm still messaging on the app.

I ended up cancelling one of the dates as I had double booked Friday night and the first date was running late. I'll have to send a restart text today to see if I can get her out this week. Both dates went well but I was unable to close (some serious LMR with the second one). I'll be setting up second dates with both.

I got something like 3-5 results this past week. Profile has yet to be optimized. Most don't respond to whatever message I send... Putting the app onto the backburner until I get time to improve my pics.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
Picked up my first notch from Hinge today. As I mentioned earlier I first downloaded the app a couple Mondays ago. I swiped/liked hard the first couple days but since then I've been very picky and liked maybe 4 girls every couple days or so.

I'm getting enough matches that I'm ejecting from conversations because the girls aren't interesting enough + there are other leads on the go. I could probably do a better a job of pushing weak leads but I'm not a fan of supplicating to girls I've never met.

Way better results than anything on bumble/tinder

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
I could swear this app pays hot chicks to just go on the thing and match with a bunch of guys. I get a fuckton of matches on here of a caliber I seldom get on any other app, but they almost never put any effort into messaging or seem remotely interested in meeting. Anyone else having a similar experience?

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
Well remember that the better looking girls are getting flooded with matches. If I get 50 matches per month then your average hot girl will get 500.

If you are in a big city you can still get very good results on this app, but don’t expect to get all of the 8s that you match with on dates, a lot of them won’t even respond to your initial message

Ok I seem to have run through all of the real girls and now it is nothing but fake profiles of extremely hot girls who say they only want a relationship and all of them live in a far off town. The app is good in general in nyc but there is a small number of real girls and thousands of fake profiles

Can confirm now, used to kill it on bumble a few years ago, same with Tinder.

I have only had 2 matches since arriving in NYC while having 50 or so in a few months in the much smaller city I moved from.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
I had a lot of matches on Hinge late summer/early fall last year but very few responses. Deleted my profile for a month, then just went back with a new profile and paid $20 for 3 months premium and I'm getting nothing. Not sure if the herd has moved on to the next app or what but its completely different for me.

Hinge is a fucking god send in New York. I literally can’t do any better IRL. I had damn good results on tinder but Hinge makes me feel like a god damn Lothario. Hinge does have its fair share of average Annie’s but boy does the good outweigh the bad.

All these dating apps and sites are for regular guys who are not aware of game and unable to cold approach.

Not a single guy in the PUA community has ever provided actual evidence that the girls he fucked from dating sites are both

1) Younger and 2) hotter

A jacked and muscular guy banging HB7s is not game. It him using his looks to get laid.

Hinge must be only good in a few big cities.
I tried it a few years ago but then they shut down the app and stopped updating it for almost a year.
Then they relaunched the app 1 year ago and it seems to be more of a relationship app now.

Have you tried "The League" for successful people?
Not sure if that will ever grow much sinc it just seems to be for beta bucks.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
Interesting, I didn't know that it was supposed to help link you with fb acquaintances. I am in a new city, and the app is much better than tinder because you can comment on a picture or 'conversation topic' before matching, so it's more 'cold-approachesque', and allows you to make an impression based on your personality and opener instead of just your looks.

Obviously, you need to look good on any of these apps, but you can drop some initial game without matching at all.

RE: Hinge App - Better Than Tinder?
An addendum to my observations above: it's more relationship based, and the girls on there are actually hitting me up for dates, as opposed to the other way around. I will be going for a drink with one of my matches tonight, will report back the quality irl.
