Getting into a relationship takes more than just creating an online profile. Hinge, a dating app powered largely by users' Facebook connections, studied 1,000 couples who met on the app in 2015 and got into a relationship within two months of joining Hinge.•Men who met their significant other on the app were 12 percent pickier than the average Hinge user, meaning that they swiped right less often.•Women, on the other hand, were 20 percent less picky.•Couples who met on Hinge carried on an average of 16 conversations with people other than their eventual significant others.Overall, those data points show that users who started relationships were very active on the app.Hinge's average user, who's single and is still using the app, chats with six people in two months — while couples who met through Hinge chatted with almost three times that number.So if you're looking to get into a relationship, think about that. Whether or not you try to do these things, it's more about seeing that it takes time.
