Descriptions


Over 21 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 behavior. 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: On Bumble, 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

"Bumble exists to empower women..." (Fast Company)
"Bumble is just an app: but it's changing the discussion." (Wired)
"Bumble offers an alternative that prioritises meaningful connections, with women calling the shots:" (UK Sunday Times)
"Bumble rejects hate speech to make users feel safe on its dating app" (Texas Standard)
"What makes Bumble different from other dating apps...is its focus on giving women all the power. " (Business Insider)

Bumble is free to download and use. However, we also offer an optional subscription package (Bumble Boost) and non-subscription, single and multi-use paid features (BumbleCoins).

    Great app! Had heaps of matches and dates and for once the ladies have to do the thinking on the 1st msg lol. Highly recommended! Way better than tinder! Only issue is it doesn't let me know when i have a msg sometimes, i must log in and see that i have left someone waiting, i presumed they had not msged me when they had? Still 5 stars but this needs fixing! Full Review

    AndThis app is a joke. I was going to subscribe but thought I better try it out first. Glad I did it's a waste of time. Went through the swipes and it's been about 2 days and when I go to look at more it still says I'm all caught up and no others are available. Lame. Sure glad I didn't spend money and I suggest you don't either when you pay for a subscription and can't even use the app for who knows how long. Can we say rip off??? Full Review

    Alot of fake profile's... Simultaneously asking questions on the first message like "what's your favourite movie" if you could be a Teenage ninja mutant turtle which one would you be?... Completely random, I've had the same message 3 times from different women.. Identical! Is anybody real on you're website? And please no patronising replys... they are people or third party's who work for bumble sending the majority of messages on here. #FAKESITE Full Review

    The idea is great. Girls making the first move means they don't get bothered by loads of guys they're not interested in and are more relaxed. The app isn't great though. Often doesn't refresh messages after someone has initiated a conversation so you can't find it. Does the same with matches. I also paid for the boost which didn't actually activate so money down the drain. Full Review

    Bimble fun. I like sliding my finger across the screen. So many pretty faces. I don't think you can match with anyone on this app, but it's fun to look and to touch your phone screen. Sometimes I get grease and gravy on my fingers and my screen gets all messy. But the faces are still beautiful. Full Review

    App works as advertised, but does nothing to clarify the catastrophic disconnect there is between political ideologies and their implementation. Nor does it address the inconsistencies in the Warren or 9/11 commission reports. Very sad. Full Review

    Hate that I set up my matches within 7 miles and I'm getting matched with ladies who live in San Francisco or Los Angeles and I'm in Vegas, it's pointless. Please fix your compatibility or range of matches please Full Review

    I got rid of Facebook 5 years ago (couldn't be happier with that decision), so I can't sign up for the site because a Facebook account is required. Seriously? Verifying identity with a Google account would work just as well yet it isn't offered as an option. Full Review

    I like the idea of the app. How it looks and operates (the UI.) But I can't stand how glitchy it is. It's really amateur programming. Messages sometimes don't show up. New matches or messages sometimes disappear then reappear after awhile. Hire a real programmer and it would be a great app that's better than Tinder. Full Review

    I read about it on a review before. It sounded like a really good concept. I swiped right on about 30 men and got three that right swiped me. Each one messaged me back when I message them. The three men were just looking for hookups and tried two make it sound like they weren't but they were. It takes some time looking at the website to figure out how it works. Full Review

    I liked the app until I was blocked in error. It says for my behaviour but I have never said anything to upset anyone or said anything that could offend anyone. I'm quite happy to show anyone the messages. They were mostly about my love of skiing etc. I assume it's an error or an angry guy when I've not had a chance to reply. Full Review

    Everything work and then suddenly its gone. 100s of swipe rights and no men waiting. Nothing going thru. Just swiping for days with no results. Multiple times delete account and return but same thing happens again!!!!!! Full Review

    3rd day using app and only 1 contact. Today, the 3rd day I did some counting. 3465 swiped right. No responses. Only 14 out of 100 profiles had verified female pictures. Makes you wonder if alot of profiles are real, if so every teacher, nurse and doctor in United Kingdom must use this app. OK, so I know I am not the best looking fish in the sea, but hey, I would have expected more than just 1 contact. Also prices seem a bit steep, especially when nobody responds. Full Review

    Love the concept and would really like to give this service a go, but the facebook only requirement keeps me out. I do not want to be forced to join facebook just to be eligible to be among your users. Even tinder, who was limited to facebook account holders only, caved in eventually and allowed joining with just a phone number. Not all of us use facebook! It should not be synonymous with a digital passport of sorts nor is it the only way to authenticate a person's identity and avoid spam and bots. Full Review

    I had the app on my phone for about an hour. Swiped right on a bunch of people but could not message anyone. It said I had 45 matches in that hour (not that I swiped that many) but to see any of those, I would have to pay. $9 bucks a week to check it out!?!?! I don't think so! Full Review

    App keeps glitching and removing messages even though we've been talking and I've no way of contacting them again. And tells me someone has messaged me but never shows me the message so it expires before I've had the chance. Lost many matches because of this which is annoying. Full Review

    If you intend to use the boost feature, even just for one time, expect reoccurring payments even after you unsubscribe. Then enjoy running the gauntlet of your bank thinking it's fraudulent activity when they retract and charge your account twice in a day. After which, enjoy their complete dismissed response through their help feature with screenshots. Full Review

    Published date: January 20, 2018

    This is an update to a previous review. I gave this site a 1 star originally because it didn't seem worthwhile and the 'subscription' didn't seem to do anything. Since then it seems like there are some issues that have been addressed which has resulted in a car of promising matches. I still can't give it any more than 3 stars yet as I still don't see any upsides to subscriptions, plus it seems like it wasn't until I complained publicly that I even started getting matches. Room for improvement, room to get a better rating. Full Review

    Matches and conversations disappear which is really disappointing even after extending the 24hours. Had a notification of a new message after a match, started a nice chat, her third reply and it wouldn't open and everything had gone. Poor Full Review

    Paid to boost as it said i had 2 likes to view but nothing there when i upgraded straight after. In addition have found few matches and silent people compared to tinder. Not recommended. Full Review

    App attempts to socially engineer the dating scene. Was great once, now sucks. Stick with Tinder unless you want to swipe on fake or outdated profiles all day. Full Review

    Jared Bawden Published date: January 12, 2018

    Likes disappear before you can find them. At one stage I had 12 likes and I kept an eye on if any of them were lost as a result of me swiping left, but none were. I spent ages trying to find them but despite my efforts they all expired. This is a joke, why should likes expire? You're fire breathing rival doesn't do this. Full Review

    WI Gutie Published date: January 12, 2018

    When I first got this app several months back, despite not being the most attractive guy out there, I had semi-regular matches and seemed to be a good app. Since removing all dating apps and coming back.... nothing. Not only is the app now a rampant data hog now, I also totally buy into the claim of many claiming bumble is shadowbanning for people who delete the app. A female friend cleared out a 10 mile radius within each other while hanging out in a subruban/rural municipality. I never appeared. I never had an image removed, never was reported and always had a polite, respectable profile. Shame on you bumble as a formerly subscribed customer. I'm removing this app for good if you dont stop this nonsense. You are literally denying people meaningful connections in how you run this app. Full Review

    Great layout. User-friendly. Would like to have more space in the about me section. Would like more people to swipe on. Sometimes I get a notification saying "the hive is busy", but then there is only one person to swipe on. Full Review

    Lupo Cordero Published date: January 15, 2018

    UPDATE AFTER +6 months: Don't waste your time, this app sucks big-time. I barely get one match a month, if lucky, and then women don't write and in 24h the match is gone. Don't even consider the paid option. Get tinder instead. OLD REVIEW: I like the app in general. I dislike that it does not let you restrict the area of search to your city but rather starts displaying people 500km away when you run out of people in your proximity. Full Review

    Greg G Published date: January 18, 2018

    They STILL dont listen to customers. #1 complaint is STILL 24 hours to respond is not enough time. This complaint comes from men AND women! They dont tell women they must initiate first contact. It looks good on the surface, but typical. "Bait and Switch" app. Stacks the deck at the beginning and then will say someone is interested in you, but you have to pay some fee to find out who it is. Just another date site preying on vulnerable people. Should suspend or delete profiles inactive over 30 days to eliminate wasted time. -------- cute theory of women asking men, but we'd die out as a species if this held true. Look at the responses from every guy on this site. All say the same thing and still Bumble doesnt listen. This is nothing more than a game at this point. Full Review

    Craig Wright Published date: January 13, 2018

    Paid for the bumble boost, no visible difference to any display despite on their website stating 'instant access to your admirers'. true I might not be getting any likes but it states you can rematch with previous matches, which you can't. No instructions on how any of this works or how to access any of it and I'm still waiting for a reply to my email asking for help its been a week already... feel like I've wasted my money.

    I like the simplicity and concept, but the messaging aspect is super glitchy. I'll get notifications of a message response and then the app won't load so I have to wait for everything to decide to work properly. Full Review

    Paid for a coin to super swipe. Took my money, said it worked. After swiping a few other people the person I paid to super swipe shows up again. Like it never happened. Had to purchase a 2nd coin to do it again. Makes me wonder about the actual swiping and matching system and how legit it is. Full Review

    Really enjoy using this app. Although you have to wait for a female user to message you first before you can contact them, it's different and fun to use. I am having some mild luck with this app and would definitely recommend to everyone👍👌💯 Full Review

    Nice until I was blocked for no reason. Customer service on this site takes weeks to respond, even then, there are no real answers. Download, and have fun. Just don't be surprised when the app stops working and nobody cares to help you solve the issue. Full Review

    Rebecca N Published date: January 20, 2018

    The notification doesn't make any sound, which makes notifications useless. There are a lot of inactive people that are shown through the app. I paid 7.99/month for the bumble boost on December now the price is 24.99/month. So not worth that price. Vina is way better you find friends. Full Review

    Its a great app in principle, i like the thought of women starting the conversations, the only flaw is 90% of women want the guys to start things off. Had a few matches all have come from any of them. Full Review

    Michael Boiko Published date: January 13, 2018

    I have had some matches on this, but for the most part I believe it's a lot of fake profiles. Had great success on all other apps like it but for some reason can never get this one going? Fishy. And I strongly disagree with this "discipline" the developers give out for people who wish to delete and recreate their accounts. You shouldn't punish someone who improved their profile and wants to give it another go around, all that makes me want to do is delete the app. Full Review
