You’ll find out from this question.  

In addition to giving a a great glimpse into the respondent’s personality, the “Bucket List” prompt is the fourth-least answered, most engaged with question, putting it high on the list of questions Hinge Members should answer to increase their chances of a comment or like.

4. Get my heels to touch the ground in downward facing dog.

Avoid These Words to Stand Out
Sometimes the best way to craft an effective answer is to do what everyone else isn’t. The following words were the most commonly listed amongst all Hinge Members who answered this question:

  • Trip:  Of all the exotic locales around the world, the top of the trip wishlist was surprising: road trip across the United States. 
  • Bali: Blame “Eat Pray Love” for Hinge Members’ top travel destination. New business idea: start an airline that travels only to Bali. You can only buy a ticket if you’re a millennial. 
  • Hot/Air:  Who knew so many Hinge Members were interested in taking hot air balloon rides…? Bizarre, but apparently this retro activity is at the top of many peoples’ bucket lists. First date idea? Hmm…

The takeaway? Lots of people want to travel. Top desired modes of transportation: RV…followed by hot air balloon. #Those DamnMillennials…
