Is this only available in the US? Can't find it on either App Store or Play Store.

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?

As posted elsewhere in the thread, Hinge is very location-dependent.

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.
