Many frustrated singletons reported being unable to access Hinge, the popular dating app.
The issues began on Wednesday morning and peaked at around 10 am, according to outage monitoring website Downdetector.com.
Downdetector tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform.
Over 700 people had reported issues with the app, while the number of reports went down around 1 pm.
‘We’ll be right back. Something went wrong and we’re working on fetching solutions. Check back soon.’ said an error message when users tried to open the app.
‘It’s International Women’s Day and Hinge is down, what are you trying to tell us, universe?’ tweeted one user.
Others were frustrated about being cut off from potential dates they hadn’t exchanged numbers with yet.
Itâs International Womenâs Day and Hinge is down, what are you trying to tell us, universe?
Hinge confirmed to Metro.co.uk that the outage was due to ‘routine maintenance’ on the app for a short period of time.
The shutdown coincided with later in the day for US users so many singles were left without a way to contact their dates on Tuesday night.
UK singles were better off, unless swiping on a Wednesday morning at work, is something you like doing.
Still, if you were worried why your Hinge crush hasn’t texted you all day, it’s likely they’re not ghosting you…yet.
A moment of silence for all the people using the @hinge app to geographically locate their dates tonight because they havenât exchanged numbers, who are now probably sitting in the gutter or alone at a bar feeling stood up and lost #hinge #hingedown pic.twitter.com/KYtN2MTErB
