Tinder dating site no facebook
This is another reason Tinder is popular with women: It lets them be just as shallow about online dating as men traditionally have been.Like Snapchat, Tinder has a reputation for being all about sexting – which is quickly disproven by using it.
If you like the look of someone, all you need to do is swipe right on your smartphone (or left if you’re not interested) to get matching.
Whether on purpose or not, Hinge has eliminated one of the downsides of online dating, that sense that, in a bottomless ocean, there is always a better, prettier fish to be found. Your only pictures are your Facebook profile pictures.
Still, this reporter has not yet met anyone who has ever gone on a Hinge date. The first has to do with the social minefield that comes from a dating pool only made up of one’s friends-of-friends. Your only interests are the Facebook pages you Like.
Hinge, which borrows most of its interface from Tinder, takes this one step further – you can see people with whom you share a mutual friend.
Another difference: Instead of an infinite stream of users, you only get a certain number per day. If someone is theoretically close to you in a network of friends and you haven’t met them yet, there might be a good reason why.
Once you’ve swiped through them all, you’ve got to wait another 24 hours for the next batch. The second has to do with Hinge’s profile – or lack thereof.
