Woman Disgusted After Hinge Recommends Her Own Brother As Her Perfect Dating Match

A Pennsylvania woman was left feeling grossed out after Hinge recommended her own brother as her perfect dating match. Brooke Averick was hanging out with her family in Haverford when she got a notification from the dating app that her matches had been updated. However, she was less than impressed when she saw the person Hinge recommended to her was her own brother.


Thankful for this new batch of emotional distress ūü¶É #GivingThanks #fyp @bertefron

‚ô¨ original sound – Brooke Averick

  1. Brooke showed off her new “match” on TikTok. The hilarious clip saw Brooke reading out the notification from Hinge, saying, “Something I’m thankful for is that my most¬†compatible on Hinge has just been updated. Here he is – super cute, if you ask me… Brooke and Noah, we think you should meet.”
  2. To be fair, they were already spending a lot of time together.” And we agree, we’re already spending Thanksgiving together and it’s going well,” Brooke continued in the video. “Let me show you – here he is. The fact of the matter is, he’s my brother and it’s for that reason we will be suing Hinge.”
  3. At least they had a good sense of humor about it. The end of the video showed Brooke running away from her brother while he leaned in for a kiss. Clearly they saw the hilarious side to the situation even if it was kinda gross.
  4. To be fair, Hinge probably didn’t realize what was going on. The idea that a dating app could identify someone’s family members by name only is pretty silly. They’re likely only looking for proximity and similar interests, so the chances of this happening pretty often are likely high. Oh well, back to the drawing board!
