Dating app Hinge has revealed its 10 most popular users in London.

The list, featuring five men and women, is compiled from users with the most 'liked' content on their profile, either a photograph or an answer to a prompt.

Rather than encouraging users to find love at first swipe, Hinge eschews the conventions of its competitors by placing the emphasis on detail, with profiles including information on users's height, political beliefs and drinking habits and choosing matches via simple "like" or "disklike" buttons.

Each user is also compelled to respond to three prompts of their choice, which range from "you should leave a comment if", to "the award I should be nominated for", to "go-to karaoke song".

Hinge's "who is the fairest of them all" data follows in the footsteps of Tinder, who revealed its 30 most right-swiped users in April.

Looking at both sets of data, the commonalities between some users show that certain traits reign supreme in the dating app sphere, such as warm smiles, witty bios and inexplicably glossy hair.

From the petroleum consultant who considers memes an 'art form' to the blogger who is averse to small talk, Hinge's list boasts an eclectic mix of personalities and preferences.

Swot up on some of the most eligible singletons in London below.
