10 Funny Hinge Video Prompt Ideas That Will Boost Your Dating App Game


While browsing dating apps can sometimes be a fun way to pass the time or get a quick boost from a few cute matches, scrolling through the same profiles filled with ick-worthy selfies or lame bios can age very quickly. Of course, with the sheer number of people using the apps, it can be difficult to create an eye-catching profile to really attract the kind of matches you’re looking for. Writing a great Tinder bio or recording a cute Hinge voice prompt can help, but sometimes an extra boost of creativity is needed. Now, Hinge’s new video prompt feature makes it even easier to stand out.

If you’re not familiar yet, video prompts are a way for daters to show more of their personality via 30-second clips recorded on the app. “Recording in the app makes it easier to create fun videos and encourage authenticity in the moment,” Hinge Moe love and connection expert Ari Brown, LMFT, told Bustle. With the introduction of this feature, the potential you have to flex your funny bone has increased significantly.

In addition to 13 video prompt options, such as “put a finger if” or “can we talk about it”, the 30-second video length gives you plenty of time to give potential matches a taste of your personality. impressive. Showing a hilarious skit or reciting an awesome reference in your music video can be one way to do just that – here are 10 fun video prompt ideas on Hinge to help get your juices flowing.


Quick story time


Using the “Quick story time” video prompt, try to think of the most mortifying story you can remember – the one that will make people cringe with second-hand embarrassment. Then, tell it with spice: create a “storyboard” of visuals to accompany the story and make it 10 times funnier.

You can also start telling a story based on a well-known movie or TV show plot, but making it original and compelling. Then in the last seconds of the video you can say something like “And that’s the plot of [movie/TV show].


I’m A 10, but…

Rather than going down the usual route of self-mockery, boost your self-confidence and list your favorite character traits. After going through the (long) list, you can end with “…so, I guess I’m really an 11.”


The things I own that make sense

Take a page from TikTok and use that prompt to show things in your house or bedroom that really don’t make sense. Whether it’s something broken that you’ve been clinging to for no apparent reason, or something really weird (the “vintage” Easy Bake oven keeping you in a nostalgic stranglehold, anyone?), someone one will totally adore your quirky collections.


something special for me

Easily make your potential matches laugh by using the “something special to me” prompt to show them a mirror — no, literally. Say “here’s something special for me” and hold a mirror up to the camera. If they get the joke, an instant “like” is virtually guaranteed.


Can we talk about

If you feel very passionate about a certain topic, pet peeve, or current moment in pop culture, use the 30-second Hinge video prompt to talk about it. Even if it’s a great niche, whatever the subject you are going to talk about, there is bound to be an echo with somebody. After all, you’re certainly not the only one who’s recently plunged down the rabbit hole of Olivia Wilde’s dressing debacle or hates getting stuck behind slow walkers on the sidewalk.


Put a finger down if

Put a twist on the TikTok trend and use the Hinge video prompt “put a finger down if” to tell an elaborate, wild, and incredible story…a story so incredible it’s actually fake. Make up a crazy story, tell it like you’re about to put your finger down to claim it as your own, then, at the end of the video, just don’t put your finger down and say something like “Yes, me no more!” Golden Comedy.


let me teach you how to

The possibilities are endless with the Hinge “Let Me Teach You How To” video prompt, but if you’re looking to make yours hilarious, choose to “teach” your potential matches how to boil an egg, fold a T-shirt , or write a check – any common-sense task that doesn’t need explaining (at least, hopefully not to most mature adults).


Rate my cut

Anyone can appreciate a cute and thoughtful ensemble, but if you want to use your comic book genius in the “rate my shape” video prompt, consider another route. Show off your Halloween costume, an old work uniform, or even your favorite worn-out pajamas that you can’t seem to part with.


cook with me

Whether you’re a gourmet-level home chef or can barely do a PB&J, you can definitely make the “Cook with Me” video prompt a hilarious profile addition. If you have the time and energy, organize a barefoot countess episode in your 30-second video, with a ridiculously hammy TV personality and voice.

On the other hand, you can choose to go the simple but effective route of making something ridiculously easy, like cereal or instant ramen. As long as you add some personality to it, you’re sure to be irresistible to swipers.


My opinion on…

The “my review of” prompt also leaves plenty of room for creativity, but rather than choosing a product, person, or even a music album you like, try “reviewing” yourself. You can create a PowerPoint presentation about yourself and why someone should date you, and have it scroll through your 30 second video. Watch the matches (and the hilarious responses) unfold.
