A huge part of your Hinge dating success is determined by your prompts.

What are Hinge prompts?

Hinge prompts are the best way to fill in the gaps about the story of your personality. Although pictures can say a lot about you, it’s hard to delve into much detail.

That’s exactly where Hinge prompts shine.

Is your Hinge profile not doing justice to your love for The Beatles, the smell of fresh-cut grass, or 19th-century Russian literature? Then your Hinge prompts are your best wingman.

Why are Hinge prompts important?

Hinge prompts are great at two things:

  1. Describing yourself more accurately. Your photos will leave a lot of questions about your personality unanswered.
  2. Hinting at your intentions. Whether that’s to keep it casual, have an open-ended good time, or find love.

Since almost everyone on Hinge is looking for something specific, it’s crucial to advertise who you are and what you’re after.

It’ll repel the peoplewho don’t want the same, and attract the ones who do! But be careful. How you say it is just as important as what you say.

Do you just want to hook up? It’s best to avoid the word S-E-X and suggest doing a playful activity. For instance, “Someone who can beat me at Mario Kart.” Everyone knows that you’re not on a dating app to look for a video game buddy.

Do you want to date someone? Then it’s best to suggest that you want to keep seeing them regularly, such as, “Someone who replaces the toilet roll when she uses up the last one.”

In other words, subtext is hugely important when creating Hinge prompt answers.

The most important thing to remember

Never forget that Hinge prompts are a tool to help describe yourself. Since you’re a complex, multifaceted person, you want to keep your answers balanced.

Every Hinge prompt answer should ideally tell a different side of yourself.

So just because you’re funny doesn’t mean you want to turn every one of your answers into a joke. And just because you’re looking for a partner, doesn’t mean you can only be serious.

Your aim is to tell a complete story of who you are.

Best Hinge prompts and how to answer

1. Dating me is like…

The best answers to this prompt typically describe a feeling.

What you can answer:

  • Finding an extra chicken nugget in your McDonalds.
  • Waking up and discovering you have another 3 hours of sleep before you have to get up.
  • Coming home from work and remembering you have leftover pizza.
  • Biting into an oatmeal raisin cookie and realizing it’s chocolate chip and then realizing two hours later it was also an edible.
  • When you find out the song you’ve been skipping for the past week is actually fire.
  • Having a headache and an orgasm at the same time.
  • Smoking weed in public… sure, people will look at you funny but deep down they want to hit it too.

2. I want someone who…

Not everyone has a clear picture of what they want. But they’re typically good at recognizing what they don’t want.

Help them make up their mind.

What you can answer:

  • Can get in line at Starbucks and have their order ready when they reach the barista.
  • Doesn’t throw me through a window if I read every plaque in a museum.
  • Looks at me the same way I look at chocolate cake.
  • Can laugh with me during a comedy show and cry with me during a sad movie.
  • Will dance with me in the living room, even if there’s no music playing.

3. A shower thought I recently had…

A wonderful Hinge prompt because it’s a great way to show off your personality. Are you quirky? Funny? Superrr clever?

What you can answer:

  • Randomly hearing your favorite song on the radio is more satisfying than playing it directly from your music app.
  • Does calling a button up shirt instead of a button down shirt make me an optimist?
  • “Go to bed, you’ll feel better in the morning” is the human version of “Did you turn it off and turn it back on again?”
  • Theme parks can snap a crystal clear picture of you on a roller coaster at 70 mph, but bank cameras can’t get a clear shot of a robber standing still.
  • If my calculator had a history, it would be more embarrassing than my browser history.
  • Tall people are expected to use their reach to help shorter people, but if a tall person were to ask a short person to hand them something they dropped on the floor it’d be insulting.
  • What if I am the main character in The Truman Show but I can’t ever find out because everyone I meet is an actor with scripted answers to keep me ignorant?
  • If I get up 10 minutes earlier than usual, I treat it like 2 extra hours and end up late for work.
  • If someone offered to pay for my food and rent for the next 18 years, I’d do anything they asked of me. But I complained every time I took the trash out while living at my parent’s house.
  • If you think about it… Aliens invaded the Moon on July 20th, 1969.
  • Tobacco companies kill their best customers and condom companies kill their future customers.
  • People who are good looking but have terrible personalities are basically real life click baits.
  • If centaurs are real, the bottom part would start walking around immediately after being born, while the top part would be all floppy for the first two years

4. My most irrational fear…

One of my favorite prompts of all, because it’s a great opportunity to make someone laugh and be vulnerable.

I know what you might be thinking. Is it good to admit you have flaws and weaknesses?

Yes! Not only because it makes you human. But because it shows that you accept your imperfections in all their glory. That’s an act of confidence And confidence is sexy.

What you can answer:

  • Becoming pregnant.
  • Swimming in outdoor swimming pools. I always think a helicopter might fly over and drop down sharks.
  • Swallowing orange seeds. I don’t want a plant to sprout from my belly.
  • For some reason I was convinced that if I ever lost my parents in a store, I’d become an orphan.
  • Giant sea spiders. Can’t believe so many still go into the sea even after they see their spidery arms wriggling in the waves.
  • Dark basements. I KNOW that the second I turn off the light a murderer will appear behind me.
  • Cantaloupes. I don’t care what you say, they’re dried up brains.
  • Swamps and quicksand. The Never Ending Story scene with Artax scarred me for life.
  • Having a genie grant me a wish and me saying I want a body like Ryan Gosling. POOF. Suddenly Ryan and I switch bodies. I’m now a socially awkward celebrity.
  • Having a room of people sing happy birthday to me.
  • Having the girl I’m dating walk up to me and go, “Notice anything new about me?”

5. My biggest date fail…

Going on dates is always exciting because you don’t know what you’ll get. Sometimes it’s great. Often it’s okay. Other times it’s a disaster.

While disasters usually don’t feel good at the time, they almost always make for a great story later. Talking about your biggest date failure will make you relatable.

What you can answer:

  • She kissed me and said she was 100% sure she was gay.
  • Had a fun time with a girl and we ended up kissing. I felt something in my mouth. It was her tooth. It was a fake.
  • Bumped into my high school crush 6 years after graduation. We went to a bar. After she had her 3rd wine she told me she loved me.
  • We had a good time so I invited her over to my place. She opened up my mail.
  • I once went out with a girl who spent the first 30 minutes of the date going into intense detail about the root canal she had.
  • Date went well. Brought her home and went for the kiss, I tripped and headbutted her in the nose.
  • We were eating ice cream and it was getting pretty dark. Told her she spilled some on her chin. Found out it was a pimple.
  • I was skateboarding to my date. I see her. Wave. Lose balance and fall while my board shoots into traffic.
  • Accidental mega loud fart.

6. Worst idea I’ve ever had…

A great excuse to poke a little fun of yourself. Do keep in mind that a Hinge profile should represent your life. So try to think back to one of your own experiences and use that.

What you can answer:

  • Celebrating my 18th birthday by going to a nude beach and finding out there’s no one under 60.
  • Trying to swat a bumble bee as I was driving down the freeway
  • Twilight rewrite: Edward and Bella are smoking a blunt. Ed gets the munchies. He eats Bella. The end.
  • Playing with my childhood friends next to a manure canal and saying, “Let’s drop big rocks in it.” Who knew rocks splashed that much.
  • Using my favorite song as my alarm. Took me 3 songs to figure out.
  • Cleaning hair out of my razor with my finger.
  • Scratching my eyelid after chopping up a bag of peppers.
  • Sticking my pinkie finger into the automatic pencil sharpener as a kid.
  • Pressure washing the deck in the summer. Get thirsty. Too lazy to go into the house. Thought if I pulled the trigger lightly, I’d be okay.
  • Putting a spoon in the microwave so I could easily scoop ice cream.

7. Worst fad I participated in…

Fads come and go. And we’re all susceptible to them, especially when we’re young.

The best part?

It’s great bonding material.

I mean, how fun would it be if your Hinge match and you both had an attic filled with beanie babies? Or if you both rocked a bowl cut when you were kids?

So here come a bunch of common fads from the past 30 years. Surely there’s something in there that you were guilty of too.

What you can answer:

  • Owning a wardrobe of clothes covered in flames.
  • Clunky skateboarding shoes with untied laces. It was like wearing flip flops.
  • A 9 inch ‘rat tail’ dangling from the back of my skull
  • Wearing a thumb ring.
  • Gaucho pants and Crocs with socks.
  • Jnco jeans.
  • Saying ‘epic fail’
  • Wristbands. So many rubber wristbands…
  • Planking. ‘Nuff said.
  • Saggy pants that showed the top of my boxers, on purpose.

8. Weirdest gift I’ve given or received…

One of the best clickbait prompts. It’s very good at triggering a response from new Hinge matches.

My examples are pretty out there. So the odds that they’ll apply to you are small. But, they’re also pretty superficial. Meaning it doesn’t matter too much if it’s true or not.

So if your Hinge match asks, you can always be honest and say it’s a story from your internet friend, Louis Farfields.

What you can answer:

  • I was 4 years old when my aunt last saw me. She sent me a birthday gift when I was 13. A kid-sized Spiderman tee.
  • A hyper realistic ear with a Van Gogh b-day card that said, “I’ll always be ear to listen.” Weird but sweet.
  • At my 11th birthday party a kid gave me a box with a bow around it. Inside I found a biology report on frogs. It was marked and got a B.
  • A girl once gave me a half-burnt candle.
  • My grandma once gave me beard oil and a comb. I was 11.
  • My very religious aunt gave me a bible and a jumbo sized jar of pickles.
  • My dad handed me the keys of his car and told me to open the trunk. I popped it open and saw a 4-foot gator.
  • A letter from my grandma that said since I stopped going to church I should pray to God every day so I don’t go to hell.
  • A piece of string to play with my cat. I don’t own a cat.
  • My grandpa got me half of a pool cue. My younger brother got the other half. We didn’t have a pool table.

9. On my bucket list…

Another Hinge prompt that provides insight into your values and what you find important in life.

What you can answer:

  • Crash a stranger’s wedding and stand up when the priest says, “Let him speak now or forever hold his peace.”
  • Have sex in a church confessional booth.
  • Play a dead body on a crime show.
  • Throw the first pitch at a White Sox game.
  • Save a kitten stuck in a tree so I can die a hero.
  • Have an excuse to get so angry that I can justifiably flip a table.
  • Become fluent in another language.
  • Cheat at a marathon.
  • Say “Why did you get it so big?” in front of Steve Carell so he can answer with “That’s what she said”
  • Pretend to be someone else at a Starbucks and walk off with a stranger’s coffee

10. Facts about me that surprises people…

A Hinge prompt that’s great at making someone text you first. At least, if you use the right kind of clickbait.

What you can answer…

  • I’ve got 2 older siblings who I’ve never met.
  • I don’t like watching sports.
  • I swallow pills without water.
  • I prefer my steak well done.
  • I know all the words to the Pokerap song.
  • I can’t snap my fingers.
  • I can’t stand raisins.
  • I play the Ukulele when I’m upset.
  • I used to be homeless.
  • I have a spooky skeleton under my skin.
  • I was once involved in a bank robbery.

11. I’m the type of guy who…

Quirks of yours that don’t make for good photos DO make for a good Hinge prompt.

What you can answer:

  • Will always bring you a snack even if you said you didn’t want one.
  • Can cook you anything as long as it’s spaghetti.
  • Sometimes runs into stuff on accident.
  • Will spend Saturday afternoons trying to fall asleep or trying to stay awake.
  • You can always find near a taco stand.
  • Can convince you to delete this app forever after just one date.
  • Can binge an entire season of (your favorite known show) with no shame.
  • Will start a New Year’s resolution and actually do it (crazy I know).
  • Will debate you on any subject even though I have no proof but my own experience.
  • Says ‘I’ll calc-u-later’ as a goodbye.

12. My mantra is…

You can’t make a photo of your outlooks on life. If you have a good one, it might be a good idea to turn it into a Hinge prompt.

What you can answer:

  • Behind every woman is a woman rolling her eyes.
  • Don’t take life too seriously, you won’t get out alive.
  • Great is good enough.
  • Humanity is trash, individuals are nice.
  • Being enthusiastic is worth 25 IQ points.

13. I bet you can’t…

This is a Hinge prompt that challenges your potential love interest. Why is that good? Because it demonstrates confidence and creates a playful rivalry.

Both are good for seducing someone.

Don’t think you have to stick to my examples. Think of your own skills and make a prompt out of that.

What you can answer:

  • Beat me at Jenga (or any other board/video game)
  • Come up with something better to do this Friday than rollerblade through the park with yours truly.
  • Refuse a second date with me.
  • Make better pancakes than me.
  • Ever look at a man the same way after meeting me.
  • Beat me at a staring contest.

14. We’ll get along if…

Here’s your chance to show what you’re looking for on Hinge in a playful way.

The more meaningful and sincere your answer to your Hinge prompt, the more serious your desire for a partner will seem.

What you can answer:

  • You give me your winning lottery numbers.
  • You like my most favorite book of all time.
  • You appreciate the small things. So… guppies.
  • You prefer to skip the escalator and take the stairs.
  • You can enjoy a water balloon fight in public.
  • You have your shit together like a Lego set.
  • You’re the right combination of cocky and humble.
  • You know my Olive Garden order by heart.

15. The one thing I’d love to know about you is…

This prompt lets you reveal what you find important in a potential partner. So it’s very direct. But depending on your answer, you can show whether you’re looking to date seriously or casually.

  • What would you do with your day if your boss gave you the day off.
  • The 3 things that need to happen for you to have a good day.
  • Title of the book that you think everyone should read.

Prompts you should only use jokingly

As good as most of Hinge’s prompts are, there are also some you want to avoid.

While they may work, these bad Hinge prompts can sabotage the success of your profile if you’re not careful.

Here are some of these prompts and the ways they can go wrong:

All I ask is that you…

If used seriously, this prompt shows that you have an incredibly low bar. Not exactly attractive.

Only use this prompt if you have a funny request. Such as, “…that you never look me directly in the eyes.”

Favorite childhood book…

Are you trying to set up your 7-year-old cousin?

Give me travel tips to…

Nobody installed Hinge to be someone’s travel guide.

While this prompt could motivate someone to reach out to you, it’s not likely. The only way I could see this prompt work is if your answer is funny.

For example, if you’re an American visiting Mexico it could be funny to say:

“The best place to climb over the US wall.”

I’ll fall for you if…

Saying that you can develop feelings for a girl based on one or two traits, hobbies or interests makes you seem easy. After all, it’s quite a low bar. Don’t make yourself out to be so easily won over.

I’ll pick the topic if you start the conversation….

In my eyes, this Hinge prompt serves no purpose other than to identify people who are incredibly lazy and a little self-absorbed.

I’ll pick the first part of the date, you pick the second…

You haven’t even matched her yet and you’re already thinking about the SECOND date? That seems like you’re getting ahead of the facts.

Pet peeves…

When making your first impression, it’s rarely good to talk about all the things you dislike.When used jokingly, however, this prompt can still be a good addition to your profile.

Qualities I’m looking for in a plus-one wedding date…

This prompt reveals that you’re not interested in someone at all. You’re only interested in finding someone to join you at a wedding. Not exactly flattering.

Something that’s non-negotiable for me is…

Remember what we said about pet peeves? This prompt will make you even seem MORE grumpy and negative. Unless, of course, you come up with a silly answer.

Tattoos I have…

Look, tattoos are cool. I have them too. But they really don’t reveal that much about your personality.

If your tattoos are one of your most unique and interesting traits, you’re not living right.

Teach me something about…

You have access to Google, YouTube, and more books to last you a lifetime. Why are you asking someone on a dating app to teach you something?

It’s strange. And kinda lazy.

Three emojis that describe me…

You’re not a child. Well, you might be. But then you’re not allowed to be on dating apps!

The best way to ask me out is by…

I don’t think men ever gravitate toward this Hinge prompt. But just in case you are, skip it.

This prompt is likely to make you seem arrogant. You not only think you’re worthy of being asked out, but it implies people have clearly asked you out wrongly in the past.

It may also make you seem bossy. If you’re already telling people how to ask you out, what else will you be ordering people to do?

The secret to get to know me is…

Don’t give away how to win you over. That’s like giving someone cheat codes. Besides, how is it a secret when you tell someone?

Try to guess this about me…

One of the worst Hinge prompts for the simple reason that it’s lazy and also a bit self-centered.

You should not go out with me if…

Giving her a list of aversions is not exactly sexy. Yes, it shows you have standards. But more than anything it makes you seem a little grumpy.

How to write a good Hinge prompt answer?

These are the 5 elements of the best Hinge prompt answers:

  • Keep it positive. No one wants to date a grump, so try to stay a little upbeat.
  • Write about details. People are more alike than different, so try to describe yourself as specifically as possible to stand out.
  • Be playful. There are few things more attractive than someone who knows how to have a good time.
  • Stay true to yourself. Ultimately, you want to be liked for who you are. So do your best to come up with your own material.
  • Don’t try too hard. The most attractive people are those who don’t feel compelled to impress others. Being yourself should be enough.

Hinge frequently asked questions

How to edit or change your Hinge prompt

If you want to replace or change the order of your Hinge prompts, all you have to do is this:

  • Open up Hinge and tap Settings
  • Tap the pencil icon to open the profile editor

From here you can reorder your prompts via drag and drop.

You can change the text of your prompt, just tap your answer to edit the copy.

And lastly, you can delete a prompt by replacing it with a new one.

My Hinge prompt is gone, what happened?!

Hinge updates its app regularly and sometimes removes certain prompts. So it’s possible an update removed the prompt you were using.

How do I answer more than three questions on my profile?

As of writing, you can have a maximum of THREE prompts at a time.

But you can change those prompts as often as you’d like. Scroll up to question #1 to find out how.

Is it better to like a profile or leave a comment?

A question I often get asked by my students of the TextGod Mentoring Program.

And the answer is not a simple matter of better or worse.

It depends on you.

Are you okay or better at texting?

Then I definitely recommend leaving a comment, because if you write her a fun text, it gives her another reason to like you.

But the opposite is also true.

Do you leave a bad comment that rubs her the wrong way? She suddenly has a reason to ignore you, even if she likes the rest of your profile.

So if you’re a little green behind the ears, leaving a comment may not always work out for you.

That said…

I STILL recommend you start leaving comments, even if your texting skills aren’t on point.

The quicker you learn, the better.
