Hello Guys. I wanted to learn more about the experience you guys get on Hinge as a co-ed. How do you decide when to ask someone out? Are girls more likely to initiate convo? Thanks for your help!
How Does Hinge Work? A Beginner’s Guide
Does the girl start the convo on Hinge?
- No, Hinge is different than all of the other dating apps.
- While most apps, like Tinder and Bumble, only allow women to initiate messaging,
- Hinge lets you do both. So either you or the girl can start the first conversation with each other.

Guys can start convo
No more waiting for the girl to message you! With Hinge’s new feature, it’s now the dude’s turn to be proactive and start the convo.
Hinge a dating app and a matchmaking service
Hinge is a dating app, but it also works like a matchmaking service. Hinge matches you with people based on your social network and interests, so it’s more real-world than Tinder or other swiping apps. It also helps you avoid getting catfished because the profiles are based on real people from Facebook.
The Hinge algorithm
The Hinge algorithm is designed to show you people who are really close matches. Hinge shows you someone based on your profile, their profile and things we know about you both as a couple (like music and favorite places). This can make it easier to meet someone since they’re more likely to be a good match for you.
When someone likes you on Hinge
Keeping it casual and easy is the best way to handle when someone likes you on Hinge. You can either decide to casually like back, or play hard to get by not liking them back for a few days (until they give up!)
Hinge was built for women by women
It’s easy to use and you’ll quickly find people that share your interests. Hinge was built for women by women, and one of its core missions is to help women find a meaningful relationship. You’ll get matched with others who are single and interested in dating.
Get more likes on Hinge
On Hinge you can ‘like’ people who you think are interesting, or who might be a good match for you. The more likes you get, the bigger your chance of meeting someone special!
The difference between Hinge and Bumble
The main difference between Hinge and Bumble is the kind of interface each one employs. Hinge offers a set of questions that let you learn about potential matches before reaching out, while Bumble allows women to make the first move.
The first message on Hinge
A good first message on Hinge is a simple “Hey! This is me…”, but it can be pretty daunting if you’re not sure what to say. When we polled hundreds of people, the most popular reply was: “Is this thing on?” Which, while cheeky and cute, could also come off as impersonal.
