How Do You Like a Match in the Standout Tab?

Using Roses on Hinge

Roses on Hinge operate in much the same way that Super Likes do on Tinder. While you can send a Rose to any profile, you should bear in mind that:

  • You can only send a Rose to someone in your Standouts feed to indicate that you’re interested
  • You only receive one free Rose per week (regardless of whether or not you’re a Hinge Subscriber)
  • You can purchase extra Roses within the app (purchasing in bulk makes them slightly cheaper).

Once you’ve sent someone a Rose, your profile will move to the top of their Likes You feed, increasing your chances of capturing the other person’s attention.

Hinge (and we) recommend also sending a comment along with your Rose. Not only is it a great way to break the ice, according to Hinge it could even increase your response rate by up to three times!

To use a Rose when browsing your Standouts feed, simply tap on the Rose icon next to the Heart icon, and watch as your Like blooms into a memorable gesture!

Does Hinge Tell You If You’re on Standouts?

However, if you suddenly start receiving a bunch of Roses and comments, you more than likely have made it onto people’s Standouts feeds!

Keep in mind that the more captivating and genuine your profile appears, the more likely it is to be featured.

Standouts is a free feature, but with only one free Rose a week, you ount, especially if you see more than one person who’s just your type on it!

The issue is that the folks you see on your Standouts feed may never make it onto your Discover feed. So, unless you have really good self control and a sixth sense when it comes to knowing who’s likely to match with you, it could all get a little out of hand.

For many users, the value of Standouts lies in its ability to streamline the process of finding potential matches, as well as saving time by curating a list of profiles that align with their preferences.

If you’re someone who finds the idea of sifting through thousands of profiles daunting, extra Roses could be worth the investment (and, as mentioned, if you buy in bulk, you can get a discount).

However, if you’re content with the experience provided by the app’s standard features and don’t mind a more hands-on approach to finding matches, then the cost of utilizing Standouts might not be as appealing.

Ultimately, the decision to invest in the Standouts feature should be based on your unique preferences, goals, and budget when it comes to online dating.

Personally? We think you’d be better placed using your money to hire a professional photography service , such as The Match Artist, to improve your profile.

Spending on Roses could not only be costly, but also ultimately fruitless, as there’s no guarantee that it’ll lead to anything!

On the other hand, making sure that you have incredible professional photos could mean that you’re the recipient of more Roses than you can shake a stick at!

Final Thoughts

Standouts is more than just a showcase of attractive profiles, it’s a carefully curated list of suggestions that considers various factors. These include location, shared hobbies, and compatibility, all which could help you find a genuine connection with someone who shares your interests and values.

Your profile is your virtual window, door, and threshold to potential matches, so it’s important to make sure that your profile is one that a potential match wouldn’t be able to say no to!
