Millions of people have signed up for Bumble to start building valuable relationships, finding friends, and making empowered connections. And now, we’ve been named one of Apple’s 2021 Apps of the Year for connection.
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.


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.


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.

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.

More Success Than Other Apps

And that’s not saying much. However, I do enjoy Bumble. Its easy to use and it offers speed dating every Thursday. however, I wish some of the features were more personalized or offered as add-ins. For example I would like the option to pay for bee-line (allows you to see who likes your profile) without having to pay for a full subscription like premium or boost. Other than that, the app itself is fine. The biggest problems you ladies (straight cis-gender) will run into isn’t really the app’s fault. After you match with someone, you’re given 24hrs to message them and they only have 24hrs to respond. A lot of times, guys don’t respond at all. You’ll also run into men who are just looking for hookups, which is typical. The other issue is the never ending one-sided small talk. A lot of these guys can’t hold a conversation or they expect you to do all of the work because bumble requires women to initiate the conversation. If your goal is to land a date in person, it’s going to take some patience, unless of course you’re a super model or something. Overall, its always ideal to meet ppl in person, but I think Bumble is a safe platform to explore your options. Use this as a supplement for your dating routine. Don’t solely rely on Bumble

Really bad app.

When will they figure out how to make swiping work? Literally just scrolling very slowly and suddenly it likes a person. Or often the reason I’m scrolling is someone caught my eye and I want a closer look. Swiped no out of nowhere without swiping no! Horrible. When you’re at the end of a instagram feed and you try swiping to the next page it swipes no. They didn’t think that one through. You have to click the last pic then swipe the no aka left to see the next pics. Literally only Bumble has problems with the most basic part of a dating app that they all offer.

Okay so don’t get me started on the actual purpose of the app; dating. That aspect is imbecilic, girls have to talk and wont. They’ll give out their details and you say so what happened? Oh I don’t check it when I match. Okay but you literally don’t understand the app. Useless app for that. My real complaint is purely as an app. It’s really bad. Name one other app where simply scrolling randomly changes to the next or previous page out of nowhere. It’s frustratingly broken. Even being super cautious. And for years now. If y’all can’t make the app work rewinding swipes should just be available for like/dislike. Like hey somehow we’re the only app that can’t get the basic function of scrolling to work literally the most important part. But we’ll sell you a very expensive bandaid to wrap around the glitch while hiding people to swipe on every 5 people for the day. Yeah weird advertisement guys.
