How does it Work?


Millions of people have signed up for Bumble to start building valuable relationships, finding friends, and making empowered connections. Creating new connections has never been easier. Bumble is working to lift the stigma of online dating by employing unprecedented standards for respectful behavior. Because of this relentless dedication, millions of people are using Bumble to build valuable relationships every single day. DATING, FRIENDS & NETWORKING Bumble is at the forefront of matchmaking technology by providing an app that allows users to foster more than just romantic connections. The industry-leading app empowers users to swipe through potential connections across three different modes: - Bumble Date: On Bumble Date, women make the first move. We’ve changed the archaic rules of the dating game so that you can form meaningful relationships in a respectful way. - Bumble BFF: Life is better with friends. Whether you’re new to a city or looking to expand your circle, Bumble BFF is the easiest way to make new friends. - Bumble Bizz: Now we’re in business. Use Bumble Bizz to network, find mentors, and create new career opportunities. Bumble is the first app of its kind to bring dating, friend-finding, and career-building into a single social networking platform. CHANGING THE RULES OF THE GAME At Bumble, women make the first move. In heterosexual matches, the woman has 24 hours to make the first move and the man has 24 hours to respond. In same-sex matches, either person has 24 hours to make the first move, while the other individual has 24 hours to respond, or else, the connection expires. By prompting our users to be bold and make the first move we’ve seen over 3 billion messages sent to date. THE BUZZ IS REAL “Bumble exists to empower women...” (Fast Company) “Bumble is just an app: but it’s changing the discussion.” (Wired) “Bumble offers an alternative that prioritises meaningful connections, with women calling the shots:” (UK Sunday Times) “Bumble rejects hate speech to make users feel safe on its dating app” (Texas Standard) “What makes Bumble different from other dating apps...is its focus on giving women all the power. ” (Business Insider) --- Bumble is free to download and use. However, we also offer optional subscription packages (Bumble Premium and Bumble Boost) and single or multiple-use paid services for which no subscription is required (including Spotlights and SuperSwipes). We offer weekly, monthly, 3 month and 6 month subscriptions giving discounts to the weekly price. The prices may vary per country and are subject to change without notice. Prices are clearly displayed in the app. * Payment will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase. * Your subscription will automatically renew itself, unless auto-renewal is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. * Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. * You can manage your subscriptions and turn off auto-renewal by going to your Account Settings in the iTunes Store. * If offered, if you choose to use our free trial, any unused portion of the free trial period will be forfeited when you purchase a subscription to that publication, where applicable * If you don’t choose to purchase Bumble Boost, you can simply continue using and enjoying Bumble for free.

  • Ok- but with a fundamental flaw


    By 4kidmom
    While it is “empowering” for women to make the first move, this app makes it hard to establish a legitimate relationship. It requires location services to be continually on (this makes me believe Bumble wants to spy on users because it’s not required on other sites) and as a result, you get tons of likes from people who live nowhere near you. I have settings on to match with men within a 90 mile radius, but am inundated with people who are just visiting my city. This is a colossal waste of my time! I don’t want to scroll through hundreds of people who don’t even live in my state and are just looking for a hookup. When I travel, I have to remember to turn off my location so I’m not swarmed with likes from people across the country. This flaw makes Bumble substandard to other sites like Hinge, where a user sets the city he or she lives in and chooses a radius. At least on Hinge I can view matches and have conversations and dates with local people. If Bumble wants to be known as more than a hookup app, this needs to change. I’m not a fan of allowing an app constant access to my location, and the time wasted scrolling through visitors is making me want to delete it very soon. Fix this flaw, Bumble, and women will stick around longer. While some women may be fine with finding hookups, many are not. If this app really wants to empower women then give us the choice to opt out of such nonsense. We’re too busy!
  • No tools for mental health


    By Brooven
    I’ve used the app and had some positive experiences I suppose, but I realized I’m less likely to meet someone in person on this app than on Say, Tinder, or something more laid back. This app has some good profile questions and I like that you can apply filters. But my biggest gripe with this and many other dating apps, is the lack of mental health filters as well. Being able to clarify on your profile where your mental health status is currently. And perhaps some mental health problems you are dealing with long term. Then you’d be able to set a few filters for the level of mental health you are really able to accommodate. The reason being, You start to talk to someone new, and it may seem great at first, but then they hit you with a totally different attitude all the sudden, and tell you their story of mental health. and usually you want to oblige and be kind and be there for them. But this ends up roping you into problems you really don’t need to deal with when you aren’t yet invested in this other persons life. In any case, I would hope they employ a filter system and profile addition that makes it mandatory to state your mental health level. For me personally I’d be looking for someone in the same mental state. Which I would simply describe as (Happy, working, growing).
  • Not bad, but needs work


    By TDROID$$!!!
    This app is good for meeting new people, however, it’s kinda unfair to use. What I mean by this is that if you end up liking someone or someone (or that person) likes you, in order for you to see who that is or for it to be an official match, you must pay $18 just to see who they are that liked you, which is really unnecessary and expensive if all you’re trying to do is meet someone, and god forbid it’s someone you don’t find interesting or doesn’t match your personality, then you’d end up just blowing $18 for no reason when the whole point was just to meet someone YOU thought was perfect for you. And on top of that, the women have to make the first move (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing), but some don’t make a move at all after matching (from what I experienced). So it then makes it unclear as to whether they even meant to do that in the first place or not, and since I (a male) can’t say anything first, I’m just left in the dark as to why I haven’t heard from anyone cause I can’t say anything to confirm if she’s willing to meet. Im not trying to complain or say it’s a bad app or anything cause it actually does what it’s supposed to do, but I’m just pointing out the flaws of paying an expensive price just to see who swiped you and whether it was worth the money or not and also pointing out the communication issues between people.
  • Great app for those looking for something serious


    By Ger R.
    I completely loved this app. I haven’t ever used dating apps and about a year ago I decided to give them a try. I did some research and decided to try Bumble first as I was looking for something serious. The app is really easy to use, I just wished the chat window was a bit more interactive and allowed to delete messages (lol), but again the purpose of this app is just to use it as a first step and continue chatting/texting out of it once you think you have a match. As a woman, is nice to be able to take the first step to initiate the conversation. I had 3 dates with really nice guys before finding my current boyfriend (we’ll soon be celebrating our first anniversary!), so we are both very happy we found each other with this app. The only thing I would recommend them to change is to allow choosing pictures from your phone instead of Facebook. I met one guy who had old photos on Facebook because he just didn’t interact with it a lot, so when we met in person he looked a bit different. Overall it was a good app, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for something serious, guys here were really nice, some really well educated, and a couple were absolute gentleman.
  • Deceptive with your matching preferences.


    By Sebastian Evridge Pope
    Not a bad app. Haven’t gotten any targeted ads yet, and haven’t been smothered with obvious fakes either. I’m giving the lower rating because they have basically put the “Dealbreaker” buttons in your range settings as a placebo. I’ve been trying to go mile-by-mile outward, because there is an entire college just outside of 40 miles away, and my queue will be entirely dominated by people from that college if I don’t restrict my range. What I find happening anyway is I will still see people OUTSIDE that range after I’ve set my range to be a dealbreaker! Even sneakier, I will sometimes find that this setting has been turned off for me, as if they’re trying to pull a fast one on me. In addition, how is it that one day I can swipe through every profile in a specific range, but the next day there’s several less than 10 miles out? Not likely they made their profile day, since that little “new here” bubble appears on their profile. There is clearly some sneaky business going on to restrict your swiping to people who will never see your profile past a certain point, and hold some in reserve so you can swipe on for longer. In the end, however, these practices are less predatory than most of your other options for dating apps. If you’re dead set on picking on, this is probably your best bet.
  • Ladies message first is not working!!! #CHANGE


    By erica the rose
    I tried bumble several times and I am finding a pattern. A lot of men on here are using bumble to gather women to hook-up with. They upload great pics and profiles and sit back and watch the messages pour in from women because we are the only one who can initiate contact ... So, the good looking guys just sit back and have their choice of woman to prey on for sexual encounters. So very little men on here actually want relationships. Oh and if half don’t reply to your message ladies it’s because their working through the 100s of messages from all us other ladies ....BUMBLE makes men lazy and their being spoiled rotten with attention cause we are ALL knocking at their doors... CONCEPT was empowering at first but has backfired... a lot of men has used this only to their advantage! There are a very small percentage of actually guys navigating with hearts looking for a relationship but I think that’s in any dating app BUT bumble has become the go to for decent looking guys to have their pick of women to get laid ... bumble has made it easy for them too! PLEASE change the women message first thing to a feature on whether a woman wants to accept a message from a guy ... make both sexes message.... EMPOWER the women again with a FEATURE that women can use to chose to unlock or view the message from the guy!!!! BUMBLE I had hope in you! Change up the feature ! It’s only benefiting the dudes now believe me !!!
  • Feel Unsafe


    By JCsAunty
    There’s an individual on here who does work in my neighborhood and has come onto me in a way that made me highly uncomfortable. He leers at me every time he’s around. I have blocked him on bumble only to see he has popped up since I blocked him about 7 more times!!!!!!! In addition to this, in June I sent a Twitter DM to inquire about the free boost trial. They told me they were having issues with boost and they would manually apply it to my account. I had about 1,000 profiles to scroll through and I had gotten through about 25 and without changing any preferences, while I was in the middle of looking at the bumble Match Queue, my ENTIRE queue disappeared! There were a few accounts I saved to look at better later and hundreds I hadn’t even seen that disappeared in a flash. I wrote them on Twitter and the bumble rep was less than helpful and it got to the point where they were just rude. Later I told them I wanted the boost removed from my account completely but was told they cannot do that. Since the time Boost was manually applied by them it rendered that whole match queue area useless. The trial has expired; it never worked anyway, but now even the blurred out profiles are gone. I’ll have guys who “super like” me that don’t show up in the queue as blurred out profiles. Bumble used to be a good app. The boost thing was just an annoyance but now that I feel unsafe with the block feature not working, I had to write a review and disable my account.
  • Reasonable Expectations


    By Pappuli
    I have been on Bumble since June 2019 and have experienced the tragedies and triumphs and everything in between. As with anything, if your expectation is immediate gratification you will be disappointed. If you are serious, patient, create an attractive profile and above all else, are honest you will make connections. These connections can lead to great conversations and much more. After that, it’s up to chemistry and no app has that. I have made connection and I waited for the conversation to start and the clock ran out. I have made connection and had second thoughts and let the clock run out. I have also met some amazing people and built lasting relationships. Bumble to me seems safe, exudes quality with the look of the app, the simplicity of use and the opportunity to add additional services for a price. I have done that once but really isn’t necessary. It is also very easy to update your profile as you learn what seems to be working and maybe what isn’t. With patience you will connect. Maybe not everyone you swiped right, but likely the right ones. Two tips, be HONEST...about everything including your age, and second, use the extended clock strategically, it can pay dividends. Bumble isn’t perfect but no dating app is. Happy Bumbling
  • Could Be Better


    By sorrow567mrstealyogirl515
    I think this app is really cool, it stands out from other dating apps and makes the “left swipe, right swipe” experience seem fresh. I think however what strikes me as the weakest point of this app is how the matches work. I was out of state and I got a right swipe but I didn’t find the match before I returned home so I was stuck with this like, with no way to find out who it is. I think even an easy way to fix this is just to put the person in the rotation of people I’m swiping on even if they’re out of state so that I can still connect with them or at least let me delete the match. (And this would only be if they’ve already swiped right on you first) Also something that stood out about this app was that it gave you three rewinds and there were on a timer and that was cool and now rewinding is a paid feature which I think is a terrible move on the developers part I could just get on tinder to not talk to my matches there’s nothing special about this app anymore accept that the girl goes first which I wish I still had the option to message first not just a single 24 hour extension but that is a discussion for another time
  • Bad Customer Service


    By MadMig17
    I was swiping on Bumble when a notification to be in the spotlight popped up on my phone. Not realizing it, I accidentally clicked on the package and tried to exit out. It was then that the payment screen came up and when I was trying to click the button to exit, it quickly accepted my fingerprint for payment. I quickly notified Bumble and got a generic response from “Mike” from the “Bumble Feedback Team” saying sorry it’s in the terms that we can’t refund your purchase. I emailed him back that I’m trying to pay for school and was recently laid off and I could really use the money. He quickly got back to me with the SAME EXACT generic email saying sorry it’s in the terms. It’s obvious that he doesn’t care and so I emailed him. I understand, but accidents happen. Please make the exception. He hasn’t emailed me back. Bumble is this how you train your employees? You pay them to send generic, careless emails to your users? You write in your email to please provide us with feedback as we’re always looking to improve. How about you go the extra mile with your customer service and show that you actually care about the service you are providing to the users and not just money grabbing. Keep employees like “Mike” from the “Bumble Feedback Team”! It’s clear he doesn’t have pride in the company he works for and the job that he does for you. Judging by the way you handle your customers, I can understand why.
