Editors’ Notes

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.

Found love in 4 hours

Having lost my wife of 16 years to cancer early last year and now being a single parent to four daughters I struggled to think how I would meet someone new. Who wants to get with a widower with 4 kids I thought. 21st century dating seemed so scary, I was adamant I would not try dating sites but after a few attempts at real life dating not going so well and with friends and family constantly telling me to try online I finally plucked up the courage. I liked the idea of the woman having to make the first move so chose to join Bumble.

The sign up process was really simple and before I know it I was all set up. I spent a few minutes swiping and getting used to how it all works then 4 hours later I got a match. We got talking the next day and just instantly had a connection. We met up for a date shortly after and things have just gone from strength to strength since. We’re now in a relationship and I can honestly say that signing up to Bumble and being matched with her is the best thing to happen to me for ages. So for anyone nervous about giving online dating a go, just get yourself out there, you might get lucky like I did and meet the girl of your dreams. Thank you Bumble for helping me find love again when I’ve spent most of the last couple of years thinking there was no chance of that happening.

Flawed App

When is this app going to ban women from starting a conversation with “Hi” “Hey” or “Hello”? I am so frustrated, I’ve had about 30 matches this month and about 95% started the conversation with “Hey”. WHY?! If their profile is boring (which it is most of the time from my personal experience i.e no prompts, no bio etc) and there is nothing to speak about, the conversation is difficult to get going! Why do they do this!? I have prompts on my profile, my pictures are somewhat intriguing & I have a bio, BUT THEY INSIST ON BEING BLAND AND BORING! They hate it when guys message them with a boring “Hi” on Tinder but they do the exact same to men?!! This app is so flawed because the whole idea is for women to start the conversations but if they’re just going to say “Hi” then that is not a convo starter and you might as well use Tinder as there is 0 difference as to who starts the convo if it starts with such a bland opening and they expect the guy to carry the beginning of the conversation. Most women are terrible when it comes to making the first move in the dating game, so why doesn’t the app support them by suggesting/forcing them to choose a good starting conversation prompt!? I’m so freaking frustrated OMG PLEASE BAN WOMEN FROM SAYING “Hey” 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
