What is special dating
You can sign up with Facebook and import data from there, or you can use your phone number.
The app guides you through the process to create your profile.
You can also hide certain aspects from your profile if you like.
All of this improves Hinge’s formula—their aim is not to find people who like the exact same things, but pair you off based on related interests. It’s free, though does have an optional paid subscription service.
The company found that only one in 500 Hinge swipes led to a phone number exchange and they wanted to change that.
Thus they pivoted in 2015, rebranding as an app for people after relationships and “meaningful connections” rather than people only looking only for friends Creating a profile on Hinge is about more than just your photos.
If you share your phone number with a match, Hinge will follow up a few days later and ask if you went on a date and whether you’d meet them again.
The data will be used to improve any future matches to try and pair you with similar people.
