Dating site where friends recommend
If you want to select dates for a friend, they need to accept your invite to the app first.
The app pulls basic, editable info from your Facebook, but incorporates your friends’ feedback (with your approval) on what makes you so darn special.
But it’s not something that’s been fully implemented in the world of dating apps at this time, beyond features like Tinder’s ability to “recommend” a profile or the sharing options found in other apps.
In those cases, though, the friend making the suggestion doesn’t usually know who it is they’re recommending personally – they just like the profile.
In the “Lifestyle” category on the i OS App Store, Tinder is #2, Bumble is #4 but Hinge is #64, to give you an idea of its traction.
However, the company believed that it would first make more sense to launch matchmaking in its own app, given that Hinge today is known as a dating app.
“We found a lot of people who felt like they missed out on the dating app craze wanted to be able to participate in some way,” he explains.
“A lot of times, people will pull out their friend’s phone and swipe for them on other apps.” This is true, actually.
They’re also generally another single person, given that they had a dating app profile in the first place.
On Hinge Matchmaker, the user would know both parties involved, as it relies on your Facebook connections, and the matchmaker could be either single or involved themselves.
