One TikToker says a man she matched on Hinge sent her a two-page essay containing references to convince her to date him.
Paige Thoma (@paigehyness) posted a TikTok of their conversation with their Hinge match on June 3rd. In it, he says he’ll do his best to “change her mind about men,” and she tells him she’d like a summary of his “tactics.” He then asks her how many pages she would like, and Thoma says two pages with “at least” three “fixed clues”.
The TikToker then shows a screenshot of an email she received from the Hinge match with a Microsoft Word document attached.
“Thanks for the extension, here’s the work,” wrote Thomas Hinge-Match in his email. He called the document “LATE ASsignment”.
As of Tuesday, Thomas Video had nearly 370,000 views.

In a follow-up video, Thoma said that the report of her Hinge match was “very original and very fun to read” and that he sent her the report within two hours after she requested it on Hinge.
“I gave him a 2 and gave him my phone number,” says Thoma in her second TikTok about the Hinge match, in which she shares part of the report. In the essay, her Hinge match talks about his past relationships and what he’s currently looking for on the dating app.
Thoma also said his grammar could have been better, and the videos’ commentators agreed.
“The punctuation is absent but we love the dedication,” commented @thale254.
“Not the center alignment though,” wrote @0xymoronic.
“Needs punctuation, but definitely had a good catch,” commented @jaelyncleveland.
Other commenters suggested that Thoma edit the report of their Hinge match and send it back to him.
In a TikTok message to the Daily Dot, Thoma said she talks to the man all the time and doesn’t think he knows about the video she made of him. The couple has a date next week.
