Bumble is a free dating app helping singles find fun, meaningful, and kind connections. It’s the dating app where kindness is sexy, and women come first—always.

Bumble is a free dating app dedicated to helping singles find fun, meaningful, and kind connections. It’s the dating app where kindness is sexy, and where women come first, always. We champion respect and equality, and we don't just welcome, but we celebrate every orientation. So whether you're straight, gay, lesbian, trans, here to find love, here to find fun, here to find friends, or simply dating for the plot–creating new connections has never been easier.

Our community is filled with millions of people across the globe who are ready to chat and meet new people, build genuine and meaningful connections, and maybe find that artsy, museum-loving, Scorpio they've been looking for.

Our matchmaking technology is constantly evolving to create a fun, kind, and most importantly safe experience for you across all of our apps, including:

Bumble Date: Where women make the first move. Women always come first on Bumble, we've rewritten the dating rules so that everyone can form meaningful relationships safely and respectfully.

Bumble For Friends: Life is better with friends. Whether you're new to a city or hoping to expand your circle, Bumble For Friends is an easy way to make new friends.

Bumble Bizz: Yep, you read that correctly. We have Bumble Bizz, too. Use Bumble Bizz to network, find mentors, and create new exciting career opportunities.

We believe a better world for women means a better world for everyone. So, for the most part, women get to make the first move around here. 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. So, don't let them be the one that got away. Send that message ASAP.

Editors’ Choice

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.

Could be great but…

I’d really spend the $200 for a lifetime membership because of its multifaceted approach, but: Dating side: They make fem identities message first- which even though they match with you, 4 times out of 5, they won’t message first. Blame patriarchy if you want, but maybe re-examine this… at least hold those whom match with people and don’t message accountable. Friends: half of it is really people trying to date anyway, but trying to work the side door. But I will say it’s slightly better attuned to friends than not. Business: I barely even look at it. It’s more trying to work around dating, OF/SC promotions, and then some people actually trying to put in work. Just needs more regulation, less sacrifice to get more clicks. The loyalty will pay for itself if someone in the upper floors plays the long game.

Update about a year later: still the same mess. Had a good week, matches with actual people (as best I can tell). But they won’t be penalized for not bothering to talk, but I can’t because Bumble allows this foolery. Of the four dating apps I use off and on right now, Bumble is both the best and worst. Tinder is just a meat market- but I’ve actually met people on it. Boo is good, but small. Many fake accounts. It’s my favorite though. FB is alright, and steadily getting better. Has real potential.

We know that from time to time people can get busy or feel nervous starting a chat and this can be frustrating if you are really interested in the connection! That's why we give our members one free Extend per day in the hopes it will give those who need it a little more time to start the chat. You can learn more here: https://bit.ly/3llOnmI.

Pay, pay, pay to use bumble

I haven’t had much luck with this app, mostly because you have to pay to do most things. Want to leave a comment? Pay. Want to extend a match past 24 hours? Pay. Want to see who likes you? Pay. Want more than 20 likes a day? Pay. Want people to actually see your profile? Pay. Want to use filters for your search? Pay And not a little either, as much as $30 per WEEK. If you don’t respond to your match within 24 hours (you know, if you have any kind of life and aren’t glued to your phone), the match will expire and, you guessed it, you have to pay. You even have to pay just to say “nice smile.” Just way too much to pay with all of the quality free apps out there. Another huge concern if their “right” to take your info and photos and do anything with them that they please, including selling the info/photos. Their opt out option seems full of odd and manipulative legal-ese.

EDIT: I’ve deleted this app. It’s terrible. I have a life other than bumble, so I’m done with their “24 hour rule” which, of course, you can PAY to get around this rule they say is “so important.” If it’s so important, why can you pay to defeat it? I’m also deleting because I’m traveling. I’m not looking for a hookup, and I want to keep my location in my hometown. If I want to do that however, guess what? I have to pay. To heck with this terrible greedy company. Take other sucker’s money, you’ll never get any of mine. Hinge, OkCupid, and even Tinder (even TINDER.)
