Porn is great but sometimes it’s not an adequate substitute for real sex or a relationship…though hopefully it will someday…
While we wait for that glorious day where watching porn has completely replaced real sex and relationships, I’d like to tell you about a new free dating app that will help you meet local singles. The dating app is called Hinge and its combined the best of Tinder and OkCupid to help you meet and date babes in your area!
Hinge connects you to other users who are friends with your Facebook friends in your area. This immediately lowers your chances of being matched with a total weirdo. Of course, there’s always a possibility of being matched with a weirdo but at least one of your Facebook friends can vouch for them.
Every day at noon, you’ll be given a batch of 5 potential partners that you can either LIKE or NOPE just like Tinder. And just like Tinder, when two users LIKE each other, you’ll get connected and you can start chatting.
Though Hinge uses Tinder’s “Hot or Not” system, it’s been improved by thanks to a customizable profile within the app rather than just taking your Facebook likes. By choosing your interests in Hinge, their matching algorithm can match you better with other singles with similar interests in sensibilities. When you’re matched, you’ll even receive a message that highlights your similarities so you’ll have an easier time introducing yourself.
Justin McLeod, co-founder of the app, told Business Insider that Hinge‘s matching algorithm is what sets it apart from all other internet dating services. “Our new data scientist used to work for the CIA, catching bad guys,” McLeod says, “And now he’s working on this new algorithm. It’s a new world.”
Hm…given all the recent news stories about spy agencies collecting data on regular citizens, I wouldn’t advertise the fact that the guy making Hinge‘s matching algorithm used to be a spy. But that’s just me.
Other than the fact that Hinge might be a secret CIA trap to blackmail single people trying to find love in the United States, it really is the most exciting new way to date local singles. Sadly, if you don’t live in New York City, San Francisco, Boston, Washington DC, Philadelphia or Chicago, you won’t be able to try Hinge yet as it is only available in those cities at the moment.
I spoke to Hinge‘s Community Manager and she promised that they are working on expanding internationally. To stay up to date on Hinge‘s expansion, just visit Hinge.co and subscribe to their newsletter.
But if you live in New York City, San Francisco, Boston, Washington DC, Philadelphia or Chicago, get Hinge right now for your iPhone or Android phone. It’s free, so why not find someone you might really like right now!
