Cliche Dating Profiles: The Most Commonly, Boring, Basic, Overly Used, Repetitive Answers, Overused Responses Found On Hinge by Girls, Guys. Hinge Bingo, Hinge Profile Tips

If you have been on Hinge long enough the answers should look very familiar to you. Although photos are the most important items on your dating profile (most people would agree 80-90+% of your dating success is driven by photos), prompts should not be overlooked. Even if you avoid these cringeworthy photos on your profile, a bad or lazy prompt can hurt your chances upon further review after matching.

Online Dating Profile Faux Pas: Bad Dating Profiles, Cliche Dating Profile Lines

A bad prompt choice and/or corresponding answer can signal you are not that serious, lack creativity or are just trying to play it safe. Prompts should provide the platform to let your individuality shine – it is what can separate you from the masses. Using examples, stories, anecdotes, self-deprecating humor, an intro to a humble-brag or using a prompt to discuss something not easy to bring up organically are the best ways to utilize prompts on your profile. 

A good prompt and answer is also helpful with respect to messaging. It makes it more inviting to start a conversation and makes it easier to reply to messages. Photos by themselves don’t always have good backgrounds, environments, details to help guide conversations. If that is the case with your photos, be sure you nail down the prompts to make up for challenging photos that make it hard to initiate a conversation.
