THE BUZZ IS REAL

“Bumble is swiping the weirdness out of online dating.” - Fast Company
CHANGING THE RULES OF THE GAME
Finding relationships online isn’t embarrassing anymore. Bumble has lifted the stigma of online dating by employing robust reporting and setting unprecedented standards for respectful behavior.
The app has also successfully shaken up traditional gender roles in heteronormative dating. On Bumble, ladies always talk first. Bumble is also the first of its kind to bring friend-finding to social networking. Now you can swipe through potential dates and friends on the same platform.
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 and 24 hours to respond or the connection expires. Prompting conversation has lead Bumble to the highest post-match chat rate in the industry.

App needs to be redesigned
This apps keep crashing, takes forever to load, and I am constantly having to restart my phone to have the app work.
Also, I hate how the "queue/messages" section is set up. I hate how the queue is never in order (yellow and greens are all mixed matched) and I HATE how small the images are of matches and people who liked me, and I hate how even when I click on the bubble to see the potential person - it opens up to write a message and not their profile - so I am constantly squinting, clicking their image, being taken to messages, and then having to click again to see their profile.. than repeat to the next person, and the next, and the next, and the next (you see how redundant and inconvenient that is?)
The app should be rearranged in that section, maybe even separate messages and queue of matches. Not everyone who likes me will be messaged, and vice versa - let's separate who I'm talking to/interested in with those who are queued!
Your intention matters.
If you're honest, kind, caring, and open to meeting new people you may have never crossed paths with, you should use Bumble.
I met my current boyfriend on the app. I had been on the app for a few months, went on some bad dates, but laughed it off and just kept my eyes open on the app. My best friend actually matched my current boyfriend and I, so my recommendation is match for yourself the way your best friend would. Act like your bff is standing over your shoulder. Be smart, be kind, be YOU and enjoy the ride.
You'll meet a lot of people in life if you get out there. Challenge yourself not to shut yourself off because of one bad experience. You deserve love and friendship! Go find it!
Awful; bad business practices
First, beware of purchasing a subscription. Bumble DOES NOT send you an email notice about your automatic renewal. Today I was stunned to see a receipt from Apple in my inbox for $27 for Bumble. I contacted Bumble support and they basically said too bad and we cannot refund you. Terrible business practice.
Now, on to how horrible this app is:
I live in NYC, the most populous city in the world, and I can count on 1 hand the number of responses I received using this excuse for an app. Once as I was swiping, I saw my friend's profile which surprised me since I knew she had been going steady with a guy for more than 6 months (they did not meet on Bumble btw). I asked her about it and she said she had not opened her Bumble app for a long while. Yet despite this long inactivity, it was still showing her profile. I actually got the sense that the majority of profiles are inactive and some probably outside my specified distance range. Plus, it seemed as though the most attractive girls (those who guys were likely swiping right on the most) were put at the very top of my queue to "pique my interest."
Please heed my warning and DO NOT download or purchase this app. I've had more success with OkCupid and Tinder. I recommend those instead. More people use them anyway, so you're more likely to get a match.
