PNW, here we come! Hinge is now live in Seattle: http://hinge.co
At Hinge, we want you to actually go out and meet cool people, instead of just endlessly swiping through randoms until your fingers go numb.
During our crusade for making real-life connections, we also made a friend - Uber. They share our belief that the curbside battle for a cab is no way to start a great date.
Starting today, meeting your matches is going to be more simple and seamless than ever. You can now order an Uber directly from your Hinge chat, and arrive to your date in style.
It’s moving season! That means it’s almost time to meet your new neighbors. Making a great first impression is important, because it creates an instant sense of local camaraderie. Plus, if you really nail it, they may even invite you over for a glass of that weird, sweet wine they make in their bathtub, while you listen to Hall & Oates. But let’s not get greedy.
So how will you do it?
Accountants and bankers and brokers, oh my! We took a look at how the top financial institutions stacked up in terms of both their attractiveness and pickiness on Hinge.
From a grand perspective, financiers are considered both significantly more attractive than the average Hinge user… and significantly more picky. When you’re hot, you’re hot, right? Gotta make cuts somewhere.
When we broke it down by company, the most sought-after institution was Goldman Sachs, followed closely by Barclays and UBS. And interestingly enough, while UBS and Goldman were also by far the most selective, Barclays was the only company below average for pickiness.
Is it their streamlined business appearance? The extra pocket change? Impressive number-crunching skills? Or perhaps a combination of the three, but regardless, the people of Hinge have spoken, and you financiers are the hot ticket.
Everyone just loooooves the beach, don’t they? “I’m on vacation!” They chant. “It’s so relaxing!” They coo. “Wait, how did I get here? I was drinking in Northern Virginia last night!” They chortle.
Good for them.
There are others among us who feel the beach is nothing but an obstacle course of foot-blistering abrasion, pinchy sea spiders, stinging blobs, kamikaze boogie boards and tan moms in awkward bikinis. TAN MOMS.
It’s time for the rest of us to conquer the wayward trials of sun, sand, and surf that we face nearly every summer. For most of you, the beach is a vacation. But for others, it’s about survival.
You guys! The battle for a work/life balance is REAL, and it’s been affecting our ability to cultivate our domestic sides. We love having people over, but with our nests struggling as of late, we decided to call on some intellectual experts from St. Ruggles Institute of Social Studies (part of Struggs University) to provide us with recipes for success.
Here are the top ways to polish your social reputation as a domestic god or goddess to a perfect shine, with minimal long-term commitment.
That time we took treadmill desks to the next level.
