Over 50 million 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 over 3 billion messages sent to date.
THE BUZZ IS REAL

“What makes Bumble different from other dating apps...is its focus on giving women all the power. ” (Business Insider)

Ratings and Reviews
Great app for those looking for something serious
I completely loved this app. I haven’t ever used dating apps and about a year ago I decided to give them a try. I did some research and decided to try Bumble first as I was looking for something serious. The app is really easy to use, I just wished the chat window was a bit more interactive and allowed to delete messages (lol), but again the purpose of this app is just to use it as a first step and continue chatting/texting out of it once you think you have a match. As a woman, is nice to be able to take the first step to initiate the conversation. I had 3 dates with really nice guys before finding my current boyfriend (we’ll soon be celebrating our first anniversary!), so we are both very happy we found each other with this app. The only thing I would recommend them to change is to allow choosing pictures from your phone instead of Facebook. I met one guy who had old photos on Facebook because he just didn’t interact with it a lot, so when we met in person he looked a bit different. Overall it was a good app, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for something serious, guys here were really nice, some really well educated, and a couple were absolute gentleman.
Do NOT pay for this app!
I used to enjoy bumble, but then, like most software people, they have to tinker with it and think they’re making it better and they made it much worse. I even wrote a letter asking why they did what they did. Here is why you should NOT PAY. They used to have a mileage feature on the site, which made sense. Lots of us don’t want to date somebody more than a certain distance away. They removed the mileage feature and offered some ridiculous explanation of “oh we want to make sure that anyone in the world who wants to see you blah blah blah”. (It was such a stupid explanation whatever it was). Well, I drove from DC to Connecticut and back. When I got back to DC, sure it’s swell to have women interested, but they were up and down the eastern seaboard. Before, with the mileage feature, anyone outside whatever mileage I had set, just went away. NOW, because of their awful software, I have to click on EVERY one of them to see if they are local or not? Are you kidding? “Oh look, someone in RI (delete), oh here is NY (delete), oh another one in RI (delete), wait, one in VA! Oops MA (delete)” shoot me now!
So what I figured out (and they will figure out how to counter what I figured out and then I will delete the app) and the reason you don’t pay is now ALL the ones interested just stay in ONE little green circle and you don’t have to deal with it. If you pay, they ALL show up in an endless stream of green circles and never disappear. Do not pay!!!!

Hi there! Our team would love the opportunity to improve your experience and address any issues you're experiencing. Please contact us directly via Facebook (@bumbleapp) or Twitter (@bumble). We're here for you!
There’s an individual on here who does work in my neighborhood and has come onto me in a way that made me highly uncomfortable. He leers at me every time he’s around. I have blocked him on bumble only to see he has popped up since I blocked him about 7 more times!!!!!!!
In addition to this, in June I sent a Twitter DM to inquire about the free boost trial. They told me they were having issues with boost and they would manually apply it to my account. I had about 1,000 profiles to scroll through and I had gotten through about 25 and without changing any preferences, while I was in the middle of looking at the bumble Match Queue, my ENTIRE queue disappeared! There were a few accounts I saved to look at better later and hundreds I hadn’t even seen that disappeared in a flash. I wrote them on Twitter and the bumble rep was less than helpful and it got to the point where they were just rude. Later I told them I wanted the boost removed from my account completely but was told they cannot do that.
Since the time Boost was manually applied by them it rendered that whole match queue area useless. The trial has expired; it never worked anyway, but now even the blurred out profiles are gone. I’ll have guys who “super like” me that don’t show up in the queue as blurred out profiles.
Bumble used to be a good app. The boost thing was just an annoyance but now that I feel unsafe with the block feature not working, I had to write a review and disable my account.
