You obviously came here to find some the best copy pastable Hinge prompts.
Because I don’t know you, I can’t always give you the best Hinge answers.
Well, the idea of a Hinge profile is that it represents your life.
So it’s possible that you’ve never had ideas that even came close to what you’re about to get.
Like before, I’ve picked the most clever prompts that also apply to the most people.
But if you can’t see something that’s ‘you’, use your favorite as inspiration.
Worst idea I’ve ever had #1:
Celebrating my 18th birthday by going to a nude beach and finding out there’s no one under 60
Worst idea I’ve ever had #2:
Trying to swat a bumble bee as I was driving down the freeway
Worst idea I’ve ever had #3:
Twilight rewrite: Edward and Bella are smoking a blunt. Ed gets the munchies. He eats Bella. The end.
Worst idea I’ve ever had #4:
Playing with my childhood friends next to a manure canal and saying, “Let’s drop big rocks in it.” Who knew rocks splashed that much.
Worst idea I’ve ever had #5:
Using my favorite song as my alarm. Took me 3 songs to figure out.
Worst idea I’ve ever had #6:
Worst idea I’ve ever had #7:
Scratching your eye lid after chopping up a bag of peppers.
Worst idea I’ve ever had #8:
Worst idea I’ve ever had #9:
Pressure washing the deck in the summer. Get thirsty. Too lazy to go into the house. Thought if I pulled the trigger lightly, I’d be okay.
Worst idea I’ve ever had #10:
Putting a spoon in the microwave so I could easily scoop ice cream.
And we’re all susceptible to them, especially when we’re young.
I mean, how fun would it be if your Hinge match and you both had an attic filled with beanie babies? Or if you both rocked a bowl cut when you were kids?
So here come a bunch of common fads from the past 30 years.
Surely there’s something in there that you were guilty of too.

The odds that any of these apply to you are small. But…
…most of these Hinge prompts aren’t only funny. They’re pretty superficial.
Meaning it doesn’t matter too much if it’s true or not.
If you’re going to go with one of these clever prompts, pick one that most closely resembles your personality.
Have you got a super old fashioned grandma? Maybe it’s not too far fetched that she once gave you a bible for Christmas.
Anyway, here come the best Hinge prompts for guys:

As with any prompt, replace [Olive Garden] with your favorite, well-known restaurant.
As good as most of Hinge’s prompts are, there are also some you want to avoid.
While they may work, these bad Hinge prompts can sabotage the success of your profile if you’re not careful.
Here are some of these prompts and the ways they can go wrong:
All I ask is that you…
If used seriously, this prompt shows that you have an incredibly low bar. Not exactly attractive.
Only use this prompt if you have a funny request. Such as, “…that you never look me directly in the eyes.”
Favorite childhood book…
Give me travel tips to…
While this prompt could motivate someone to reach out to you, it’s not likely. The only way I could see this prompt work is if your answer is funny.
For example, if you’re an American visiting Mexico it could be funny to say:
I’ll fall for you if…
Saying that you can develop feelings for a girl based on one or two traits, hobbies or interests makes you seem easy. After all, it’s quite a low bar. Don’t make yourself out to be so easy.
I’ll pick the topic if you start the conversation….
In my eyes, this Hinge prompt serves no purpose than to identify people who are incredibly lazy and self-absorbed.
I’ll pick the first part of the date, you pick the second…
You haven’t even matched her yet and you’re already thinking about the SECOND date? Comes across as a little desperate.
Instead of spoon feeding you the answer, let me guide you to the answer with a question:
Do you think it makes for a good first impression to start talking about all the things that annoy you in life?
Of course not. That’s why you don’t want to use this Hinge prompt, unless your answers are clearly playful and silly.
Qualities I’m looking for in a plus-one wedding date…
This prompt reveals that you’re not interested in someone at all. You’re only interested in finding someone to join you at a wedding.
Something that’s non-negotiable for me is…
Remember what we said about pet peeves? This prompt will make you even seem MORE grumpy and negative. Unless, of course, you come up with a silly answer.
Tattoos I have…
Look, tattoos are cool. I have them too. But they really don’t say that much about a person… hopefully.
If your tattoos are one of your most unique and interesting traits, you’re not living right.
Teach me something about…
You have access to Google, YouTube, and more books to last you a lifetime. Why are you asking someone on a dating app to teach you something?
Three emojis that describe me…
You’re not a child. Well, you might be. But then you’re not allowed to be on dating apps!
Tell me about a time you…
You just met and you’re already too lazy to show some genuine interest? Sheesh. Good luck with dating.
The one thing I’d love to know about you is…
This prompt leads you to reveal to everyone what you find important in a potential partner. Which can get good reactions if you answer something silly.
Genuine answers, however, make you seem like you’re taking Hinge far too seriously.
The one thing you should know about me is…
Unless you go with something funny, this prompt seems like a warning. And you obviously want to make yourself seem as attractive as possible.
The best way to ask me out is by…
I don’t think men ever gravitate toward this Hinge prompt. But just in case you are, don’t even think about it.
This prompt will make you seem arrogant. You not only think you’re worthy of being asked out, but it implies people have clearly asked you out wrongly in the past.
It may also make you seem bossy. If you’re already telling people how to ask you out, what else will you be ordering people to do?
The secret to get to know me is…
Don’t give away how to win you over. That’s like giving someone cheat codes. Besides, how is it a secret when you tell someone?
Try to guess this about me…
One of the worst Hinge prompts for the simple reason that it’s lazy and also a bit self-centered.
You should not go out with me if…
Giving her a list of aversions is not exactly sexy. Yes, it shows you have standards. But more than anything it makes you seem grumpy.
#1: How to edit or change your Hinge prompt
If you want to replace or change the order of your Hinge prompts, all you have to do is this.
From here you can reorder your prompts via drag and drop.
You can change the text of your prompt, just tap your answer to edit the copy.
And lastly, you can delete a prompt by replacing it with a new one.
#2: My Hinge prompt is gone, what happened?!
Hinge updates its app regularly and sometimes removes certain prompts. So it’s possible an update removed the prompt you were using.
