I connected with many people; however, no one responded to any communication. I felt like people only "collected" matches, no one was serious about actually meeting. Much better dating apps available out there, like Bumble or Tinder!
Hinge is saying it's now a "relationship" app and changed its format to reduce mindless swiping. I tried it briefly but decided to take a break from the dating apps all together. I will give it another shot when I start online dating again.
