If no one says something within the first 24 hours, the connection disappears forever!Making the first move has always been a massive pain in our gay asses, and a ticking clock might be just what queer girls need to swallow their shyness and just say “Hey!Setting up my HER profile took less than five minutes; I just signed in with Facebook, selected a couple pictures from my various social media feeds and filled out my stats.I like that Facebook is required to sign up for HER because it helps keep out pathetic men who get off by pretending to be lesbians on the internet.Then again, HER’s minimalist profile reflects the modern trend in online dating towards less chatty profiles that encourage users to interact rather than creep.On the “Meet” tab, I browsed the profiles of fetching young lesbians in my immediate vicinity.”My pleasant if unremarkable experience with Bumble was slightly marred when I read this ludicrous passage in ’s fawning interview of Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe.“Users swipe left (or ‘no’) and right (or ‘yes’) on profiles of potential partners. But on Bumble—unlike Tinder or Ok Cupid—only the women can begin a conversation…Perhaps still more impressive: the ratio of women to men using the app, which is just about even—uncommon for this sector.
This lets Hinge users quickly cobble together a taste profile.
I’m a big fan of Hinge’s latest innovation, a gloriously simple tweak that weeds cheaters out of the matchmaking app pool.
Hinge now syncs relationship status from users Facebook pages.
Hinge provides users with a small batch every day, along with each match’s job, pictures, and connection to you.
One aspect of Hinge I loved and found super simple and helpful was profile customization.
