Hinge Releases Distraction-Free Dating Guide

Dating app Hinge has released a ‘Distraction-Free Dating’ guide, explaining how singles can have quality time with potential partners. Research by the platform found that 80% of users prefer “phone away” dates.

Developed by Logan Ury, Hinge’s Director of Relationship Science, the guide encourages singles to minimise distractions while trying to form new social connections. It includes dating tips as well as 20 different ideas to help build chemistry on dates. 

The platform found that three out of four daters are more hesitant to open up if the person they’re speaking to is on their phone. 

“Face-to-face quality time helps us build intimacy with others, but figuring out how to get the most out of that time can be tough for daters. This guide will help our community focus on each other and have memorable first dates that lead to meaningful second dates,” said Josh Penny, Hinge’s Director of Social Impact.

The guide is available to all Hinge users worldwide.

“Many Americans, especially young adults, wrestle with the experience of loneliness, which has profound consequences on our health and well-being. We were excited to collaborate on this guide with Hinge and advance how daters across the world build meaningful and authentic connections,” said Jillian Racoosin, Executive Director of the Foundation for Social Connection.
