Signing up for an account on Hinge is considerably longer than most dating apps. This is because Hinge was made to match people looking for serious relationships.
The process is a per-page procedure. After choosing whether to sign up using your Facebook account or mobile number, you must provide a valid email address.
Though no email verification is required, if you choose to sign up using your mobile number, you must provide the code that will be sent to it.
Afterwards, the process includes filling out the different sections of your profile, which are as follows:
This section asks you to provide your basic information. First, you need to pin your exact location on the map. It has to be your neighbourhood, not just your country or state. You can choose to use your phone’s GPS to determine your current location or manually enter where you are located.
Next, you need to enter your gender and gender preference. If you are bisexual, there is an option that profiles of both men and women will be recommended to you.
You also need to disclose your height, ethnicity, work, education, religion, if you have kids, and hometown. You can choose which of this information will show up on your profile.
After providing some basic personal information, the sign-up process will now ask you questions about your perspective on somewhat controversial topics. Such matters are your political views, drinking, smoking, marijuana, and drugs.
Again, you have the liberty to choose which of your answers will show up on your profile.
The last step of the sign-up process is uploading photos that will show up on your profile. You won’t be able to proceed to the next step if you fail to upload six photos.
The site will automatically get your six most recent profile photos if you import photos from your Facebook account. If you choose to delete one of them, it is mandatory to replace it with a different one.
Another part of this step is choosing at least one writing prompt to answer. These prompts are questions you need to answer or incomplete sentences you need to finish. Your answers will show up on your profile.
Providing all the information Hinge asks for and creatively answering the writing prompts can help your profile stand out from others. The details found on your profile are essential to getting more likes and finding real matches.
