Strategies for dating
Whether it's someone you're meeting online or it's someone your friends know, aim to drop the things you know about them and start fresh.

Since it’s relaunch a while back, Hinge has been calling itself the “relationship app.” But is it really so different from Tinder?
• Hinge makes it clear it’s for relationships, not hookups, which puts everybody on the same page. Hinge CEO explains: “It’s like Instagram profiles for dating, and in beta testing, has driven five times the conversations.” • Rather than swiping, you interact with the dater’s profile content directly.The profiles scroll really naturally into photos, videos, and info about the person.When you come across something cool in a profile, you can heart or comment on it to get the conversation moving straight away.I don't want to pick up a saved video game: I'm here to start new." —Orlando O."I always appreciate the offer to split the check, even though I never allow it.If we end up grabbing drinks later and a woman insists on paying, I really like that a lot.
If you're flowing with it and cool, we've got a winner.
