More About Bumble

It is one of the best dating services right now. Similar to Tinder, you and your partner have to swiper each other to have a match. It was created by a co-creator of Bumble, giving more power to women. It helps women to avoid unnecessary requests and overwhelming messages.

Let’s Talk About Membership Base

The membership base of Bumble is equal. It contains about 55% men, and the rest are women. Usually, the demographics remain equal on this dating app. This platform is not only to date but can also be used for networking or to find friends. You may have a Bumble BFF or a Bumble bizz. It started in the US but has spread worldwide now.
It is available once you have a smartphone supporting iOS or Android and when you have a good internet connection. If you are a woman and don’t want strangeness in your inbox, we suggest you try Bumble.

Does the Bumble App Exist?

Yes, of course, the Bumble app exists. It was first available as an app for iOS. The app was created by Whitney Wolfe herd as a feminist dating service. She was the co-founder of Tinder. Due to the growing issues with women getting too many spam messages, Bumble was created. On this app, only women can send the message first.
It serves as a pillar for empowerment, and it lets women be selective. It was started in Dec 2014 and has grown to be one of the biggest dating platforms to be used. There is a dating website, too, for Bumble.

How are the Bumble Special Features?

Bumble is known for its safety and women messaging the first feature. Apart from that, you can also find friends or business friends from Bumble. This is becoming more of a networking site rather than a dating site. With the pandemic still swerving around the corner, cool virtual dating options are available.

Let’s Talk About Safety

Bumble has one of the strongest teams of security checks to avoid fake profiles from being uploaded. They have excellent privacy controls where you can block someone or decide who can see your profile and who cannot. Also, the fact that women get to make the first move adds the extra security that was always needed.

Our Experience on Bumble

How was our experience on Bumble? Well, I am amazed at how much it has to offer more than just dating. Here is a break-up of how we felt at each step:

Sign up Process

Sign up Process
You may sign up by using your Facebook account. But if you don't want Facebook to sneak up on your dating interests, use your phone number to sign up. Verification is through the confirmation code that you receive by SMS on your phone. If you use Facebook, Bumble will use your age, name, gender, and photos automatically. If not, you will have to upload them manually. Make sure your picture is clear, and refrain from uploading random selfies. Bumble wants you to upload more than 1 photo from the beginning, even before the basic information.

Profile Creation

It is important to know that you don’t have much space to write about yourself coming to profile creation. You have about 300 characters altogether. You may try to tell more through the pictures that you upload. Pictures at work, pictures with your dancing shoes, or others that depict something special about you can work better than words. The information they need is your name, age, and sex, and what you identify yourself as. You can complete your dating profile by answering a few questions like who is your dream dinner guest, equality to me means, and my most recent acts of kindness are.

Searching and Matchmaking

Once you are done signing up and creating a dating profile, the magic starts. If you are a woman, you get to look through a series of guys and swipe right or left. There is a super swipe, too, which tells the other person that you are super interested. If the two of you swiped right, you match, but the woman gets to send a message first. Also, you may choose to start a networking account or a friend's account instead of dating. If you are homosexual, anyone can send the message first.

Contacting Other Members

How to contact other people? If you are a man and want to contact a woman, you have to wait for a message. If a woman is interested and you guys are a match, you need to wait for her to send a message first. If you a gay guy, you can make the first move. Whether it's dating or business, you have to wait for the woman to make her first move.
On the other hand, Women can contact the people they have matched with at any time. Also, you have 24 hours to text another person after you have matched.
Review Conclusion
In conclusion, we can say that this is one of the greatest platforms to date. You can use it for creating friendships and memories. As woman, you would love this app, given the level of control and security. As men, you can enjoy the attention you are getting. The usability is absolute gold for both the app and the web. The profiles are amazing but a tad short, and the members are awesome. The number of fake dating profiles reported been minimal, and the teams are continuously working to keep them a mile away.


How many messages can I send?

As a woman, you can send as many messages as you want to the matches. As a man, you can only respond to the messages you have got.

How long does it take to approve my profile?

No approval is required since there are no ID checks. With your phone number confirmation, your account is created within a second.

Is Bumble safe?

Yes, it is safe due to the data encryption and photo scrutiny. You can also report any suspicious activity or fake dating profile, and immediate action will be taken.
