Unlike many popular dating apps today, Hinge boasts an interesting format in which its users have the ability to answer a variety of premade prompts, alleviating some of the pressure of having to come up with a unique or clever bio. Simply pick three prompts (and a voice prompt, if you're comfortable), and answer the questions to the best of your ability. Since these prompts are premade and everyone can answer them, it can sometimes feel hard to stand out on Hinge. If you're struggling with answering Hinge's prompts, look no further than list of potential answers that will keep your profile exciting and eye-catching!
