The Art of Recognizing Green Flags on Hinge

In the last blog, we talked about red flags… but knowing how to spot green flags is just as important!

Let’s get into all the green flags I look for on Hinge.

Online dating can sometimes feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. But don’t be deterred! There are SO many positive signs to look for as you’re navigating the sea of profiles on Hinge. Today, we’re going to unravel the mystery of spotting “green flags” on Hinge and offer some nuggets of wisdom on how to shine as a potential green flag to others. Let’s jump right in to help you have the greenest, most fruitful online dating experience on Hinge!

1. Engaging and Insightful Prompts:

Hinge’s prompts give you a chance to display your character and passions. Be on the lookout for green flags in profiles where individuals have selected prompts that strike a chord with you. I always advise keeping an eye out for prompts that invite a conversation, signifying the person’s readiness to engage and connect on a deeper level.

2. Positive Photos and Energy:

A picture is worth a thousand words, and positive vibes shine through. Green flags on Hinge consist of photos that radiate warmth, joy, and authenticity. Watch for genuine smiles, intriguing activities, and common interests. Remember, visual hints can provide a wealth of information about a person’s personality and the potential for a meaningful connection.

3. Respectful and Thoughtful Communication:

As you chat with your matches on Hinge, pay attention to how the converse. Green flags entail respectful and thoughtful messages that display a genuine interest and effort to understand you better. This may be the biggest green flag of all: look for people who are asking you questions!! It shows they’re friendly, genuinely interested in keeping the conversation going and getting to know you better, and that they’re going to be a fun companion on a date (not one of those duds who can only talk about themselves!).

4. Matching Relationship Goals:

For those of you who are looking for a genuine relationship, a pivotal green flag on Hinge is finding a person whose relationship goals align with yours. Take note of people who respond quickly and earnestly, aren’t afraid to be open and even a little vulnerable, and seem to share your values. People who play games or don’t ask questions or make you feel anything less than heard and understood aren’t the ones who are looking for something long-term.

Spotting green flags on Hinge—and avoiding the people who don’t display them—is going to help you (dare I say it?) actually love online dating.

It really is possible!

By being mindful of authentic profiles, engaging prompts, positive energy, respectful communication, and matching relationship goals, you can traverse the Hinge terrain with confidence and self-assuredness.

And remember: the art of spotting green flags is reciprocal. Ensure that you project yourself as a potential green flag by curating an honest profile, engaging in kind, thoughtful, and fun conversations, and expressing your true intentions.

With these insights and a dating expert like yours truly by your side, you’re going to meet someone on Hinge who’s worthy of dating someone as awesome as YOU.

Happy dating,
