Tell me what you watch on TV, and… we’ll tell you how to find love.

Hinge, the dating app designed to be quickly deleted, has leaked some tips for binge-watching lovers.

Based on the character you identify with the most, among Pacey from Dawson’s Creek, Emily in Paris, and Izzie from Grey’s Anatomy, Logan Ury, Director of Relationship Science at Hinge, shared some tips on how to find love (using dating apps or not).

How to Find Love? It Depends on Who You Identify With


You Identify with Pacey from Dawson’s Creek

Charisma is your strength. Exuberant and always ready with a joke on every occasion.

No matter what others say, you don’t stop in the face of difficulties. Undoubtedly, your conquest weapon is a charm, like Pacey Witter.

If you’re like this, you probably make a bigger impact in person than in chat. Address the issue with a voice or video message, telling something funny.

Logan Ury explains: “Hearing someone’s voice connects us with that person on a level that cannot be achieved with a photo or text. Hinge Labs’ research shows that the best way to assess compatibility is through live interaction.”

Similarly, voice messages on your profile and Hinge’s video prompts can help to showcase your personality. More than half of the app’s users have stated that observing the other person’s behaviours is the most interesting aspect when watching a potential partner’s video. Among the specific prompts for the most popular videos to start a conversation on the app, phrases like “Greetings from me and my pet” and “I’m a 10 but” stand out.


You’re like Emily Cooper when it Comes to Love

You have a thousand commitments, and your life moves at the frenetic pace of the metropolis you live in.

Not only that, but you have a packed social agenda, whether it’s events or hanging out with friends.

In short, a bit like Emily Cooper, you’re advancing in your career, and at work, you’re great at strategizing, but when it comes to finding a partner, you’re at a loss.

After all, building meaningful connections takes time, and a romantic date is definitely not the time to be in a hurry.

Help your dates understand who they’re dealing with, give them an idea of what it would be like to go out with you. By openly telling them who you are and what makes you happy you’ll give a true lasting impression.

“Sharing your quirks or personal tastes can help create a vivid picture of who you are and help the other person imagine what a relationship with you would be like” – regardless of the time you have available right now.


You’re Like Izzie from Grey’s Anatomy

You believe that showing your vulnerability is not a sign of weakness; on the contrary, it’s a strength.

Furthermore, you appreciate honesty and are the ultimate romantic.

It’s not new to you to communicate what you truly feel, and your alter ego is Izzie Stevens. Showing your sensitivity can help potential partners understand what makes you unique from the start.

Logan Ury explains: “Talking about emotional well-being used to evoke a reaction similar to ‘oh no,’ today it’s instead seen as a ‘must’ even on a date. People are starting to work on themselves and want to be with someone who does the same. Prompts related to ‘self-care’ help demonstrate that you prioritize your emotional well-being and that you’re ready to establish a deeper and more authentic connection.”

On Hinge, leverage prompts to discuss the importance you place on taking care of yourself. Among these are phrases like “The last entry in my diary is about” and “I feel supported when.” These suggestions encourage users to show their vulnerability and open up about their emotions.
