What Works Best on Dating Apps: Shannon’s Hinge Profile
Hi, I’m Shannon. I’m the Assistant Producer on The Andie Summers Show. Out of Andie Summers, Jeff Kurkjian, Donnie, and myself, I’m the only member of the show who isn’t married. I’m also not currently dating anyone and heading to the dating apps.
I’ve been on the apps before and experimented with different photos and prompts. Now, I’m trying to figure out what works best. I’m not looking for more matches. Instead, I’m looking for the right matches. I find myself responding to people who comment and begin a conversation with me over just liking a photo and leaving the rest up to me. As I always say, quality over quantity. How do I achieve that?
Let’s Make It A Competition
I went to the people who know me best, Andie, Jeff & Donnie from The Andie Summers Show. I asked them for their help in choosing the best photos of me and writing the prompts they think will get me the right matches. How did I convince them to participate in this? Let’s turn it into a competition. Each week, a member of The Andie Summers Show will “take over” my profile.
What Is Hinge?
Let’s start with my profile. Below, you’ll find the layout of the dating app Hinge. To complete your profile, you must include 6 photos and 3 prompts of your choosing. Other users can then like or comment on specific photos or prompts. Unlike Bumble or Tinder, you cannot just “like” the whole profile. Once someone likes or comments on something specific from my profile, I get a notification for a new like. From there, I have the option to respond or reject that person based on their profile.
