Are you tired of dating websites that pair you with a stranger, only to find out that you and your match have nothing in common?
If so, it’s time to check out Hinge, a free social discovery app that helps you meet new people through friends.
Instead of mindlessly swiping through the faces of complete strangers like on dating sites such as Tinder, Hinge is about quality over quantity. The app launching in Houston today, is changing the way people meet by using your Facebook connections to find you people with whom you'll share things in common.
With Hinge you can find out where your match works, went to school and which friends you have in common.
Not only that, but the app is known for listing personal details that matter on each individual's profile, something lacking from most dating apps. With Hinge you can find out where your match works, went to school and which friends you have in common. Since every match is related to your existing friends, you can put more trust in each of Hinge's selections and mingle without the anxiety that comes with meeting someone for the first time.
Using Hinge, you can receive up to 20 potential connections every day, each curated from your social network. If you and your match are interested in meeting, the app makes it easy for you to get to know one another by providing an introduction which includes your shared interests and even recommended meeting spots.
