If you’re playing matchmaker, simply sign on with Facebook and select two friends.
The potential love birds are set up in a chat — catch being that they can only see the other’s age and gender.
Back when dating websites started, My Single was one of the most popular.
Perhaps because our crippling Britishness leaves us unable to say anything nice about ourselves, but having someone else do some of the dating leg work is pretty appealing.
But that requires you sign your friends up for the app, instead of relying on an existing database of users like Hinge has.
You can also only see users who've been active on Hinge in the last 60 days.
As the company explained in a statement, "The reality is, people aren’t ashamed to admit they use dating apps in this day and age, they aren’t hesitant to talk to their friends about it or even let their friends take control of their app at times." Since Hinge is a service that already relies on your social networks, the company maintains that their users "are comfortable being on the platform and understand that their Facebook friends could learn that they're on Hinge." That may be true on one level.

Unless you want to hook up with a pilot, in which case good for you).
