You might not have your Dealbreaker enabled for the preferences that you want to be 'hard' preferences (e.g. we never show you anyone outside those preferences.). Unless they're set to 'Dealbreaker', we prioritize people who fit those preferences but also show you others.
To enable a Dealbreaker:
Within the Hinge app, navigate to your Settings tab
Tap the Preference you want to make a Dealbreaker (like Maximum Distance, for example)
Tap on the toggle if you’re an iOS user or the circle if you’re an Android next to Is this a dealbreaker? to make a Preference a Dealbreaker
Tap < to go back, and you should see the word Dealbreaker next to the Preference you edited
The algorithm will then adjust your Discover queue to reflect these specifications.
If the issue persists, please try logging out and logging back in to the app.
