Hinge has an uphill battle in competing with Tinder, which has a huge user base and was seeing 400 million swipes a day plus 4 million matches per day in November.
As one of the first dating sites in the niche, Asian Dating is one of the largest and most trusted sites around.
Eventually, Hinge plans to monetize by selling premium services that enhance users’ experiences.
Those might include getting more matches, being able to select someone you want to keep appearing in front of, or being able to tell if someone read your message.
Since 2000, thousands of happy men and women have met their soul mates on Asian Dating and have shared their stories with us. For a fun, safe and uniquely Asian dating experience, join free today.
