What Are The Best Hinge Questions To Answer?

The best Hinge questions to answer allow you to share details that will make her mentally file you under “great catch” and inspire opening lines so it’s easy to send you a message. These are 9 great options:

  1. Believe it or not, I…
  2. Best travel story
  3. I geek out on…
  4. This year, I really want to
  5. Typical Sunday
  6. My simple pleasures
  7. I’m a regular at
  8. Two truths & a lie
  9. I know the best spot in town for…

Those particular questions give you an opportunity to share an interest, a goal or a personality trait in a way that inspires a connection.

But once you know what makes an answer attractive, you can make just about any of the 80+ prompts work.

PRO TIP: Change Up Your Hinge Answers Periodically It’s a good idea to freshen up your profile every so often since dating apps usually reward active, thoughtful users with more exposure. Changing your profile answers is a perfect way to give yourself a little boost.

Think Of Hinge Questions As Message Bait

Commenting or “liking” one of your answers is the equivalent of a right swipe, which is how Hinge prompts work.

Starting a conversation is the ultimate goal.

The 150-character limit doesn’t give you much space to play with, so bait the hook with an enticing snippet of information that subtly conveys an attractive trait about you.

Good Hinge Answer Example #1:
Good Hinge question example

Doctor is an attractive occupation, so even though the app displays what you do in the personal details section, it won’t hurt to ensure she doesn’t miss it.

Mentioning the guitar shows you’ve got a creative side, and have the dedication to learn how to play an instrument.

Now she’s got two easy and interesting things to ask you about – what sort of doctor you are, and what type of music you play.

Compare that good Hinge profile example with an answer like this, that focuses on something negative:

Cringeworthy Hinge answer

Not nearly as compelling, right?

With so few words in each one, each one makes quite an impact on her overall impression as she reads it.

Steer away from clichés she's seen a million times, or words that generally don't have attractive associations.

Funny Answers To Hinge Questions

Humor is a great angle to take in dating profiles because girls are naturally drawn to witty guys. And if you can make her smile, you’ve already formed an emotional bond of sorts.

But because of its subjectivity, make sure what you think is funny she’ll think is funny.

bad Hinge prompt example

On “serious” apps like Hinge where she's probably looking for a long-term relationship, crass humor probably isn’t going to fly.

If you have any reservations, either ask one of your female friends for her opinion, or go with something else.

This Hinge answer example calls attention to an attractive career in a humorous – and subtle – way.

Survey Says The Best Hinge Question To Answer Is…

The Hinge app team analyzed data for London users, and discovered the best prompt to answer was “I know the best spot in town for…” because it led to the most dates.

Odds are excellent it will work just as well in other locations, so consider making it one of your three choices if it's on the menu of currently available prompts.

Another great Hinge prompt to choose is “Most spontaneous thing I’ve done…”

Per the app’s internal data, it’s 61% more likely to get a comment or a “like”!

Simply choose something you enjoy that would also make a great first date activity, say craft cocktails, a glass of wine, or tapas – and mention it in a way that makes her want to experience it with you, like this…

A Common Hinge Profile Mistake (That Could Be Costing You Likes)

Hinge profiles are short – it takes less than a minute to scroll through it from start to finish.

Negativity tends to stand out like a sore thumb, and that doesn’t do her first impression of you any favors.

Instead, try to always frame your answers in a positive way.

For instance, if you can’t cook, mention it in a playful (and positive) context:

Good Hinge Answer Example #8:

Remember, she doesn’t know anything about what sort of person you are. All she’s got to go on is your photos and how you answer each Hinge question.

So why hand her a reason to tap that X?

Here are some real examples from guys who are taking up precious profile real estate with Hinge answers that aren’t exactly checking items off her “must have” list. 

Check out what she’s likely thinking when she reads them:

See how important it is to keep everything positive by highlighting only attractive qualities?

Some of the Hinge questions are inherently negative. It’s generally best to either give those answers a positive spin, like this…

Good Hinge Answer Example #9:

Or avoid those types of prompts entirely.

For instance, would you care about the pet peeves of a total stranger, much less have a conversation about them? Neither does she.

Besides, taking up one third of your profile to let her know what bugs you tends to sound a little whiny. Not a great look when it comes to dating…

coworkers prompt example

Here’s one of the problems with this particular Hinge question – when you read the example above, did you automatically think of the last time a coworker did that to you? 

And you probably felt at least a flash of irritation, right?

So when she reads your answer and feels that same flash – she’s likely going to subconsciously associate feeling irritated with your profile

Definitely not the foot you want to start off on.
