We’ve all been there – you see a profile you’re interested in, and you decide to send a rose. But what really happens next? And are there any do’s and don’ts for using the rose feature? Let’s take a closer look.
What happens when you send a rose on Hinge?
So, what happens when you send a rose on Hinge?
First, it’s important to understand the purpose of this feature.
Sending a rose in Hinge isn’t just a simple click-and-send scenario. It’s a tool that allows you to communicate your special interest in someone beyond the typical ‘like’.
Rose on Hinge is like the normal “like” feature on dating apps.
However, Just like the super like on Tinder, it’s a higher version, and usually respected since it costs money.
When you decide to send a rose, it puts you in a different light in the eyes of the receiver, since it’s not often being sent.
Basically, it’s a higher level of interest compared to standard interactions on the platform. This is because of how it works.
Now what happens exactly, when you send a rose?
Well, your profile comes up to the top of their likes and is seen like in the picture below. It’s not ignorable.
Generally, this can be an easy way to stay clear of the competition for someone who pretty much gets consistent likes on the platform since your profile gets highlighted.
The right way to use Rose on Hinge
1. Take your time
Take your time to go through profiles before deciding to send a rose. This is not a feature to be used impulsively or hastily.
You’ll want to spend some time reading through a person’s profile, checking their responses to prompts, viewing their photos, and generally gauging whether you’re genuinely interested in them or not.
A rose sent to a well-considered profile stands a better chance of leading to a meaningful connection. Keep in mind that there’s no undo button; so you can’t unsend when you send.
2. Send them
Now the next step is to actually send the rose. So here’s how you do it:
- Open the Hinge app on your phone.
- Browse through the profiles until you find someone who catches your interest.
- On the profile page, you’ll see a rose icon at the bottom of the screen next to the “like” button.
- If you decide to send a rose to this person, simply tap on the rose icon.
- You’ll be prompted with a confirmation screen asking if you’re sure you want to send the rose. This is because you only get one free rose per week, so you need to use it wisely.
- If you’re sure about your choice, confirm by tapping the “Send” button.
- The rose is then sent to the chosen user. It will appear in their ‘standouts’ section.
3. Don’t Hold up
Sending a rose is only the first step, a way of getting noticed, but it’s not the end game. So, don’t just send a rose and then kick back and wait.
Be prepared to engage in a conversation, to respond to their prompts, and to be authentic in your interaction.
Is it weird sending a rose?
Sending a rose through Hinge is not strange, and neither is it cringe.
Some people may feel that way, but that’s only a percentage of people.
Just like the super-like feature on Tinder, sending roses on Hinge shows you’re interested person more than the average Hinge user. This kind of a boost to their ego, and could make them respond to you, unlike simply sending them a “like”.
It’s also important to keep in mind that it still doesn’t ensure a response or that your match will be immediately interested in you. It’s just a simple method to initiate the discussion and demonstrate your interest. But make sure, it’s worth it.
While the rose can be a powerful tool, it’s not a magic wand. It’s a start, a signal of interest. The rest – the conversations, the connection, and hopefully the chemistry – is still up to you.
And that’s the thrill of online dating, isn’t it? It’s not just about sending roses; it’s about what happens after you send that rose – the connections you form, the relationships you build, and the stories you create along the way.
