After all, real life is where more than 75% of the world's kissing takes place.
Just how do you get a young lady (or gentleman) to take a chance on you, anyway?
Even with the pressures of the first date, overcoming small talk, and sorting through the endless sea of noncompatible matches, dating should be a fun experience.
The best way to attract somebody that you truly dig is by showing your true colors upfront.
Get to know the person: recently ran a brilliant data-backed piece that outlines the pickup lines with the highest success rates.
Meaning, there really is a science to the pickup line, and much of the process is, get this, actually trying to get to know someone.
The app, which raised a $12 million Series A round of funding last year, conducted a month-long study, analyzing data from its users.
"Every day, the Hinge team is asked if we know the secret to starting a great conversation that will actually lead somewhere," Karen Fein, Hinge's vice president of marketing, says. Since it's our mission to help users move beyond the swipe, to connect over something interesting and to ultimately meet up — we decided to find out." Here are some of Hinge's findings.
While these messages don't seem like direct pickup lines, they open the door for flirty or deeper conversation. Use direct, upfront questions: Until very recently it was almost expected for men to start the conversation, but with the evolution of dating, many women now feel comfortable taking the reins.
It's clear that men and women think differently, which also means they respond to inquiries differently.
If you're trying to chat up someone who is 24 to 28, Hinge says to start a conversation based around lifestyle or activities, so ask about brunch preferences or what the person likes to do on a Sunday.
