Hinge uses the Gale-Shapley algorithm that pairs people “who are likely to mutually like one another”. It measures this based off your engagement and who engages with you, as well as matches you to people with similar preferences.
Does Hinge have a attractiveness algorithm?
Does Hinge Match On Attractiveness? No. Some people have strong filters that they will never see you. Others are too popular that they will not spend enough time on the app to see you unless you are a new profile (and are lucky with your new user boost) or maybe pay for a boost or super boost on Hinge.
How does Hinge determine compatibility?
So how does Hinge determine your most compatible options using the SMP algorithm? Hinge first takes into account the likes you and the general community have sent and received in the past 24 hours from any given point. The algorithm then analyzes members in-app behavior to determine matches.
