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 behaviour. Because of this relentless dedication, millions of people are using Bumble to build valuable relationships every single day.
DATE, MEET FRIENDS, NETWORK
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 billions of messages sent to date.
THE BUZZ IS REAL

“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)

Ratings and Reviews
Matchmaking app Bumble flips traditional social norms. Here, women make the first move. Some 50 million people have used it to not only find a date but also make friends and conduct business. If you don’t start chatting within 24 hours, the match disappears—encouraging you to actually talk to people.
“I’ll never meet my husband on a dating app…”
Like many others in there 20-something’s I was looking to settle down with someone serious. Unfortunately, my desire for a lasting relationship came during the peak of the pandemic where I was unable to really go out and seek that connection. Bumble allowed to connect with potential matches and allowed me to “get back out there” without having to REALLY get back out there.
The app itself is really easy to use and I appreciate Bumble making it so that potential major deal breakers are listed directly on the person’s profile (e.g., wants kids, education level, job title, etc.). The only thing I didn’t really like about the app (hence why I rated it 4/5 stars) was that women (because the woman messages first) only had 24 hours to start a conversation with a potential match and the match only had 24 hours to respond. This can be extremely limiting as not everyone uses the app everyday and doesn’t provide flexibility for those who are really busy during the week and may not be able to make checking the app a #1 priority.
Connecting with others through any dating app is a process and requires a lot of patience. I met my fair share of problematic matches, but isn’t that what dating is for? With all else being said, I am pleased with my experience with Bumble. I was one of lucky ones to have been connected with my now fiancé, who was as willing to work at a lasting relationship as I was.
Customer Service Fail
This is my second account with Bumble. The first one I had to cancel because I simply tried to verify my account by taking a picture (which seems like the only way to do so) and could not do so. I literally took several photos in the same spots in my house and the app basically told me I’m not me. The app then locked me out and forced and when I contacted customer service for assistance they suddenly could not find an account for me. So stupidly I started another profile, with some of the same pictures and definitely the same information. So I decided to try and verify my account yet again….and yet again it will not allow me to verify. I have contacted customer service and have received a basic email with no information that is of use to me. I am now locked out of my account and will likely close my account. This app is really not that user friendly and it makes it impossible to receive any helpful customer service to solve a simple problem. I recognize that verified accounts add another layer of security (which is why I wanted to verify mine) but this is too much trouble! Oh and I’ve yet to find anyone who isn’t trying to sell something, have me follow them on another site or who isn’t really married to someone I may know!
