Hinge is available to download on your smartphone on iPhone and Android devices. The dating app focuses on relationships and not just casual hookups. You can see the profile and also know if you have mutual friends. This, in turn, ensures that the profile is safe and you can start a conversation with the person.

This is how the hinge works. You sign up for the dating app and then you get a list of users. Members are categorized based on their age, physical proximity, and gender, based on your specifications. If you like someone and get a positive response from them, you are now a match and can start chatting with each other. To create your Hinge profile, you can import your profile pictures and personal information from Facebook.

Hinge offers its members only a select list of profiles to choose from. This is so that the user doesn’t end up just browsing profiles, but starts engaging in some serious conversations. Matches come in regularly but are comparatively lower than most other online dating sites. The algorithm matches profiles based on your preferences and your tastes so that you get a match that suits your personality and taste.

The site also wants its users to delete their profile on the dating app once they find their match here.
