Hinge dating app traditionally used one primary feed to show profiles to people on the app (commonly known as discover). This feed allowed anyone to like and/or comment on anyone’s profile without a match or mutual like needed for it to send through.

However, Hinge is known to monetize users like no other ever since the acquisition and in an effort to create more revenue streams they created a new paid product called Hinge roses.

Hinge roses were the equivalent of a Tinder Super Like or Bumble Super Swipe in hopes of getting users to think they can stand out from the masses. Shortly thereafter, Hinge then decided to ramp up its efforts by dedicating a new feed of profiles in which only roses (paid) can be sent to users.

Who Are Hinge Standouts? Hinge Standout Meaning? How To Like Hinge Standouts

Hinge’s new feed is called ‘Standouts’ which is separate from the feed that one typically sees on Discover. The definition is rather vague but it is described as a combination of people who are ‘getting the most attention’ and based on previous likes and matches.

The only way to communicate with Hinge Standouts is with sending a rose (comment optional).

Do Hinge Standouts Appear In Normal Feed? Will Standouts Appear In Discover?

There is a lot of confusion around this but typically the Standouts on Hinge do not appear in Discover however, standouts are refreshed every 24 hours so someone who is in Standouts 1 day may not appear the next day and assumedly is thrown back into the normal queue.

With that said, said standout will have received many roses on one day and may get so overwhelmed that they may not see regular likes and comments, as roses elevate a users’ visibility to said profile (priority queue).

Are Hinge Standouts Active? Does Hinge Show Inactive In Standouts?

Unfortunately, you can’t assume profiles on Hinge are active and similarly, can’t assume Hinge Standouts are active as well.

One theory is that Hinge uses inactive, popular profiles to get users to come back to the app or that Hinge uses these profiles to bait users to spend money on roses.

One should not assume Hinge Standouts are inactive because they have not replied to them – by definition, these users are getting bombarded by other users on a single day (perhaps close to their subscription ending?)

Are Hinge Standouts Mutual? If Someone Is In My Standouts Am I In Theirs?

Not necessarily. Hinge Standouts refresh daily, so it’s highly unlikely that both you and said profile are mutual standouts for each other.

Similarly, given their popularity and priority queue of users sending them roses, it’s possibly you will have a harder time being seen, noticed than other non-standout users on Hinge.

Hinge Standouts vs Hinge Most Compatible – Hinge Standout Algorithm

Hinge Standouts are a curated feed of users based on aggregate data factors whereas Hinge Most Compatible (in theory) are based on factors more closely tied to your likes, preferences etc.

It’s possible that users in Standouts may appear in Most Compatible but don’t wait. Anyone who is high in demand likely will not be on the app for much time as they will find someone quickly or get overwhelmed by unwanted attention and too many likes/comments from people they are not interested in.

If you are not getting interesting, attractive suggestions in Hinge Most Compatible, it might be your preferences, lifestyle choices, appearance, or swiping etiquette (swiping outside your league too much).

Hinge Rose Jail – Hinge Rose Jail Theory, Hinge Rose Jail Meaning

Hinge rose jail is the idea that users are required to send roses (pay money) in order for users to send likes to attractive people (usually behind standouts). Yes, dating apps have an incentive to withhold attractive profiles to get people to pay money but that is not needed.

Standouts appear in a regular feed if you:

-are patient

-have corresponding attributes that align with others preferences

-don’t volume swipe right / tap heart

-send comments with likes; send good comments with likes; send unique comments with likes

-are not only swiping right/tapping heart on people mostly out of your league

-do not re-create profiles/try to game the system

-do not use fake photos, use model photos to boost attractiveness, switch locations/orientation to get more likes to boost attractiveness

If you do try to game the system, Hinge may shadowban you.
