Hinge is Better Than Tinder, Apparently – Here’s Why…

Hinge first appeared in 2012. Back then, it was very similar to Tinder and other dating applications for iPhone and Android. It connected via Facebook caribbean cupid and then proceeded to mine your Facebook friends’ connections for potential matches. The idea here was simple, if slightly misguided: if you’re friends with someone, maybe that friend’s friend might like to date you.

This was how Hinge functioned for a while. But then it completely changed its approach to online dating. The company that owns Hinge even changed its slogan to “designed to be deleted” – such was its confidence that it’d find its users long-lasting matches. Hinge also changed its setup procedure too; it now focuses on questions – like eHarmony – to get to know your better. After you’ve done this, the algorithm will present you with some options.

Hinge Works COMPLETELY Differently To Tinder

On Tinder, you swipe left and right on potential matches. This is kind of Tinder’s whole deal. You used to do this on Hinge too, but then Hinge changed the way it works. It now works kind of like Instagram, so you can comment on and like other peoples’ content on the platform – this is how you get on their radar.

Finding potential dates is different too. Rather than arbitrarily swiping left and right on profiles, as you do on Tinder, with Hinge you’re scrolling through user-generated content – updates from other Hinge users. If you comment on a post or like a post, the creator gets a notification and can then check out your profile and drop you a message.

This is the main fundamental difference between Hinge and Tinder, and it is a big one too. It means you can potentially connect with anyone and, unlike Tinder, it doesn’t require that they have already swiped right on you. If you can find someone on Hinge, you can potentially connect with them.
