Although not as popular as some industry heavyweights, Hrny surely holds its own when it comes to member quality and helpful features. 

I’ll admit I was skeptical at first when I heard of Hrny, primarily due to the fear of being catfished. But soon after signing up, I realized that the platform is a haven for the open-minded.

My First-Hand Adventure with Hrny is an adult dating network that caters to the needs of people interested in casual dating. I heard about the app from a friend and decided to try it out. Here’s my first-hand experience with Hrny. 

Signing Up 

Hrny allows users to register as a single man, a single woman, or a couple. While I registered as a single man, I appreciated the fact that I could mingle with couples as well.  

After clicking on ‘Next,’ I was redirected to a registration page where I keyed in my age, country, and city. then prompted me to provide my email address and password before completing the registration process. The next step was filling out starter profile details like ‘display name,’ ‘about me,’ ‘tagline,’ ‘hair color,’ ‘eye color,’ and interests, among others. 

I didn’t feel like filling out all my profile details in one go (I never do!); fortunately, allows users to save their details and complete profiles later. In less than 5 minutes, I had my account up and running, which is a lot faster than most sites I’ve registered on. 

Site Layout

Although I loved the straightforward signup process, I found the home page to be a tad confusing at first look. I felt bombarded with photos and buttons, which made it a bit hard to navigate at first. Fortunately, it isn’t too complex once you take a moment, and I was soon cruising the streets of Hrny like a pro. 

I absolutely loved the Find Members feature on the home page, which allowed me to quickly filter profiles based on age and geographical distance. 

Oh, and did I mention that Hrny opens its doors to everyone? Yes, you can choose whether you’re interested in women, couples, or transsexuals. The platform allows you to easily zero in on whatever you’re looking for.

Another top-drawer feature I appreciated is the content rating system, as it allowed me to choose the type of content I wanted to appear on my feed. I chose ‘show everything’, but you can change the content rating to ‘no nudity’ or ‘some nudity’. 

To change the content rating, you’ll need to click on My Account (top right section), choose Profile Settings, and click on Content Level, as indicated below. 

I also loved’s privacy features. As you can see above, I could easily make my profile discreet or inactive with the touch of a button. Such a convenient featured to be able to customize this at any time. 

Member Profiles 

Hrny’s detailed profiles made me warm up to the site, especially due to my fear of being catfished. I could find tons of useful details like a user’s preferences, interests, and location on user profiles, which made it easy to determine my compatibility with other members. 

Other buttons on members’ profiles included ‘message,’ ‘add friend,’ ‘favorite,’ ‘wink,’ ‘notify me,’ ‘tip,’ and ‘private video chat.’

I could also view a user’s status update on the right side of the main profile (which I could like or comment on). These features will make it super easy for you to initiate conversations with members that match your preferences. 

Hrny’s Features

Let’s look at some of Hrny’s stand-out features that make it the ideal wingman. 

Advanced Search Filters

I love that Hrny has a dedicated search button that simplifies the matching process on the app. Some of the search filters I found useful include ‘most popular,’ ‘new faces,’ ‘online now,’ ‘who’s viewed me,’ and ‘members live streaming.’ 

Clicking on the advanced search button allowed me to fine-tune my search using additional filters like sexual preferences, appearance, interests, compatibility, profession, religion, languages, and marital status. 

Member Chat

If you’re like me and love keeping your options open, then you’ll appreciate the Member Chat feature. With this feature, you can participate in group chats, a random video chat, or even a group video chat. 

Some of the rooms I’ve tried out in the group chat include ‘Main Lobby’ and ‘Meet In Person.’ I liked that I could upload photos in the group chat and that members don’t hold back when it comes to flirting. 

One thing I noticed about the group chat is that it’s mostly idle during the heart of the daytime. But the numbers tend to spike in the early evening before peaking at night. 

Status Update

I love a dating site that provides a wide range of communication options. Besides sending messages and flirts on Hrny, members can also update their statuses. While I’m yet to post a status on the site, I’ll admit that I enjoy scrolling through posts and viewing other members’ photos and comments. 

I also loved that I could fine-tune statuses using filters like ‘Everywhere,’ ‘Near Me’, and ‘Friends & Faves.’ Other filters include Timeline (today, this week, this month, 90 days, this year, and All time) as well as the types of statuses (posts, videos, and photos). 

Live Cam

I’m a big fan of live-action, and Hrny doesn’t disappoint in that regard. By simply clicking on the Live Members button (top of the home page), I was able to access live members and live models (broadcasting on partner sites). I’d recommend trying this feature out and tipping your favorite model(s) to start making friends. 

Daily Spotlight

Getting noticed can prove difficult on online dating sites, especially when you’re just getting started. Hrny has a feature dubbed ‘Daily Spotlight’ that allows you to be featured on the homepage for 24 hours. 

It costs 100 credits to be shown to members within your locality and 500 credits to be shown to members across the country. Although I haven’t tried the feature out yet, most of my friends claim it works wonders.


Hrny uses a credit system that requires users to pay to access premium content and features like priority messaging and Daily Spotlight. I purchased 2000 credits for $19.99, but you can get 500 credits for $4.99 if you want to test out the site first. There’s also a 5000 credits for $49.99 package that I plan to switch to as my on-site activity increases. 

Final Verdict: Is Hrny Worth Trying Out? 

Hrny is a great option if you’re in search of a modern dating platform with numerous communication channels. I love that besides sending messages, I can update my status and use video chat to communicate with other members. 

Plus, the advanced search function is a big deal. I’ve set my account in such a way that only nearby profiles appear on my feed, which allows me to interact with people that I can meet with easily. You can set and change your preferences by clicking on the search button at the top of the home screen. 

I also like that Hrny allows users to choose their content rating. I don’t mind NSFW content, but knowing that I can set it to no nudity when not at home gives me peace of mind. 

While I didn’t like the ‘busyness’ of the main feed at first, I got used to it pretty fast. And I’m sure you will too. 

I’d call Hrny a hit, but one that requires a little patience. Chances of getting laid overnight are pretty slim, but you can boost your odds by logging in frequently, updating your profile, and responding to messages without delay.
