Bumble - Meet New People
Description
Over 45 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 “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, and that will never change for our main features.

Found the greatest man ever.
by layce96 on 2019/02/17 17:18
I got the app around March 2017 didn’t really have any luck at first met up with a few and if just didn’t work out. Early December 2017 I ended up meeting a guy who turned out to be my best friend and the love of my life. We’ve been together for over a year now. And I love telling people how we met because it shows you can really find love on apps like these. It just takes time and patience and ALOT of swiping.
It’s at best mediocre
by AcidicJoker on 2019/02/17 16:24
I use this and tinder. You meet better people on here but the app is so poorly done. So many times I would scroll down to read bios and see other pics, the picture would mistake it for a swipe. Then I acidentally swipe a perfect girl because of that and I can UNDO THE SWIPE losing her forever. So yea the app is mediocre at best. 😡😡😡
Terrible
by Nofftastic on 2019/02/17 14:06
Wouldn’t let me post a picture of my kids and their dad. Kept saying they were alone in the pic. Didn’t let me post a yoga pic. Didn’t let me post other site info to bio... lame to say the least
Worst
by SxyGermanCpl on 2019/02/17 13:20
Account continuously gets locked because of nudity in face only pics... and other issues. Ridiculous.
Don’t fall for it
by tdigyt on 2019/02/17 11:05
It showed 42 “matches” which are people you would never check that you liked. I have my settings set for 50 miles and there aren’t enough “users” even though they say to expand your parameters. Don’t pay!
Lol
by yeah yeah 21 on 2019/02/17 11:00
Been on for about 2 weeks now and only 1 match. I saw the app and thought why not and it’s not been very good. I’m a good looking guy haven’t had trouble on tinder🤷🏻‍♂️
did i get banned?
by chey01134 on 2019/02/17 09:11
i put in my number and password, and then it just looks like it’s stuck loading. i never got an email or anything saying i’m banned, i don’t know if it’s my phone or something
Nice app
by Unlock filters on 2019/02/17 07:55
I like the functionality of it and the info is good to know. It has a lot of questions and chances to show personality. I have to complain about the colors in messaging. White font with a yellow background makes it hard to read, for me anyway.
So far so good
by mattiejs on 2019/02/17 03:56
No bots, or glitches in matches so far. Only been about an hour or two though 🤷‍♀️
Notifications
by Abbeyroadforever on 2019/02/17 01:53
I can’t get any notifications on my phone about new messages. I’ve been getting stupid notifications about coming back to swipe more of a new connection but I’m missing messages from people. It’s very annoying and counterproductive to trying to get to know someone.
One week is one week! Does Not say weekly for 8. 99
by Creator@72 on 2019/02/17 00:14
I tried the app for one week for 8. 99. That’s what it says for one week 8.99. It does not say weekly. Besides my first week that I initiated. I’ve been charged two additional times. Please do refund the two amounts of 8.99 that Your advertisement does not clarify. Thank you
Why do guys have to swipe?
by TheLurtch on 2019/02/16 18:49
Since the girl has to both like you and be brave enough to send the first message, the best strategy for guys (that is, the most likely strategy to land you a date) is to just machine-gunner style swipe right on everyone and hope for the best. So why not just have guys post their profiles and have girls message whoever they want? It’d basically the same thing but with less bs. And btw who would want to use a platform like that? This app is just a crappy version of a concept that only interests a narrow range of people in the first place. TL/DR: Get Tinder, Coffee Meets Bagel, OkCupid or Hinge instead and save yourself some time.
Found the man of my dreams
by emf.rx on 2019/02/16 18:28
I tried this app against the stigma of meeting people online just to literally find the man of my dreams. He was someone at my college I must have crossed paths with 1000 times but we never met. Thank you bumble!
This app is a ripoff
by ucucvjvj on 2019/02/16 17:58
Literally swipe right on every profile and cannot get a single match.If you want matches you gotta pay.Total rip off.
good but
by Aye 🙊 on 2019/02/16 17:49
this app is good but i don’t like how the girl has to make the first move. some of us girls are shy like myself!!
Never match
by yorchi87 on 2019/02/16 17:22
I never have a match Z I think something is wrong
Bring back liking messages
by Abbtin on 2019/02/16 15:47
Love the new update but being back liking messages!
The ones you swipe left continue to appear
by TextLessHugMore on 2019/02/16 15:05
I waste a lot of time with this app continuing to swipe left on the same profiles again and again and again. The same profiles appear dozens of times. If you swipe left once they should not reappear.
Wrong age
by Balerinagirl on 2019/02/16 13:55
If they get your age wrong there is no way to edit it I am not 67 I am 57 Balerina
Gendered Friendships
by Sphinx8888 on 2019/02/16 13:23
They claim this is the percent use of the platform but that doesn’t excuse the archaic idea that women should only be friends with women and men with men. It’s 2019! Men and women can have hobbies and interests in common and not date! Get with it, Bumble. Or is that where the name came from? Bumbling through the 21st century without a clue?
Fake people
by Darshan Sonagara on 2019/02/16 08:16
Almost same name and people seems fake.
Getting a woman to talk with you.
by W Austin Ta on 2019/02/16 04:05
I’ve had a lot of empty space having to wait for her to initiate the conversation. I wish there was a way to help with that. You get very little exposure for a pay app.
Lots of scammers
by bali-ja on 2019/02/16 03:09
Was on here for a week and talk to 6 girls and all was fake and scammers! Also it’s just a money making app!! Not good trust me!
Doesn’t work
by Bnese2016 on 2019/02/16 02:51
I have paid for this app twice and it has been functional for one week out of five. Lame.
Not enough matches
by glo300* on 2019/02/16 01:09
Not enough matches to even choose from. I will not be renewing.

Bug needs fixing
by noptynj on 2019/02/15 19:42
Constantly would ask to reverify my photo and when it says that it would not post the selected photo to your profile it would do so anyway. While it was reverifying it would take extended periods of time where I would have to close the app and launch it again and then it would ask to reverify again! Very annoying and unproductive.
Very unhappy
by Slly82 on 2019/02/15 16:45
I hate this site. I haven’t received any luck on this site as much as others have been raving about. I had a few reach out, but everything time there is a response the conversation there is always a deletion. On top of that being appalled by the app. There are no clear instructions on how to delete the subscription and now it’s taking money out of my account. This is truly poor service. Even though deleting the app was annoying unable to cancel the subscription is even more frustrating!!! Very bad form indeed!
Updated Policy Is Ridiculous
by Stick with tinder or hinge on 2019/02/15 16:33
Bumble deleted my account because one if my pictures violated their updated policy. I understand that some people don’t hunt, and that’s fine. Swipe the other way. But a lot of people do and showing them that “this is what I enjoy doing and I’m proud of this kill” is a freedom anyone should have. But being half naked in your bathroom mirror taking selfies of your cottage cheese butt is okay.
It’s great.
by Alexiita12 on 2019/02/15 15:56
The app in its totality is great, awesome and everyone is so nice and I’m so glad I joined! But recently something happened that I’m confused about. I matched with a guy, I wrote to him and so did he and not even ten seconds after I was gonna write the match said it expired and we had just matched, I’m not sure if that’s what happens but we had recently matched and then it went away.
No response.
by Breanna_Favela on 2019/02/15 12:53
Emailed bumble abt a problem I was having cus my matches weren’t saving and some account problems. They never responded... talking abt give em a week or so cus no one likes to get ghosted. it’s been a month and still no response. It’s an OK app.
Bias towards straight men & non FB users.
by Milo Rock on 2019/02/15 06:19
Bumble is bias towards straight men and non-Facebook users by allowing certain users more access and freedom based on gender & sexuality. Women & gays are allowed more access and controls and are hold in higher regard towards straight men. Bumble’s only answer to this is that men in the past have sent rude & unwanted messages and by that logic, all men should be treated as if they had sent rude messages. Regardless of Bumble “Extend” feature. Bumble is penalizing straight men right off the bat with that. Society would not allow an app to be created if it put women and gay people in a box and say you can’t do certain things but this other class of people can. So why should it be any different for straight men? All marketing & promotions are geared to women only. On Bumble’s IG “Overheard Bumble”, men are ridiculed & made fun of and on “Bumble Buzz” men are ignored. You can only use Bumble if you have a FB account. FB has lost the confidence of the public in more than one occasion. No one wants to use a a social media app/platform if that company is appearing before Congress. I understand that it’s a safety concern but FB had not been safe in years. By requiring your users to have a FB account is alienating non-Facebook users. At the end of the day, you will be treated differently if you are a straight man and you use this app. Woman however can do no wrong through Bumble’s eyes. Bumble is unwelcoming to straight men & those potential new users. Bumble beware!
Iniciar conversa
by rakellol on 2019/02/15 02:33
Acho que curtir uma pessoa já eh muito. Acho valido permitir que o homem inicie uma conversa e a mulher decida se ira continuar ou não. Muitas conexões se perdem.

Low use
by bjfjddfkkllsssssjknftg on 2019/02/14 23:02
I don’t think many actually use this . A lot of profiles but most look fake or very old/inactive
It’s got so much potential
by Wgzaz27 on 2019/02/14 22:56
It’s a good concept. But the coins are overpriced and there’s no way to promote your profile. On other apps they have a “Boost” which you pay like $2 for and it boosts you for a certain amount of time and more people see you which leads to more matches. It’s not fun only getting one like per month, compared to 20-30 likes a month on other apps.
Fauxmble
by TheGame007 on 2019/02/14 20:35
Nothing but fakes and bots. If you spend money on this app you might as well burn your money because all this app does it rip you off
Love this program!
by Darry and Sherly on 2019/02/14 20:18
I really like being the one to initiate conversation!!!
A great site for all ages.

A great site that gives just enough information on people to help make more educated choices.
I met my love on here
by Hollahollagimme2dolla on 2019/02/14 18:59
I redownloaded the app today to go back into my messages to take a screenshot of the very first time my girlfriend and I said hello, on Valentine’s Day. But for some reason it’s like you can’t just login with an existing account...?
Love bumble but
by Sashalious on 2019/02/14 18:15
Location is broken, some locations completely gone others only show city even though I can see a profile updated
Good app, selective matching algorithm.
by SerenaB4 on 2019/02/14 18:10
Love the app, although the matching algorithm is disappointing, I’d like the chance to message people I’m really interested in.
Glitchy
by Marynunzi on 2019/02/14 16:29
Consistently does not load & notifications for messages show up ~20 mins later.
Great service
by Kiki715 on 2019/02/14 15:22
When my sister first told me about Bumble early in 2016, I was hesitant and skeptical thinking "another stupid Tinder app" but what sold me was that ladies make the first move, eliminating dozens and dozens of repulsive emails, which saves a lot of time. I also like the time limit that got me moving faster to message someone I'm interested in (although I learned the time limit doesn't really make them go away forever, at least not when I was using it). No more unwanted disgusting & creepy messages!! Within a week I started talking to a guy I was interested in and we hit it off right away. I’ve had some not so happy endings in the past, as many of us have, and this man I met through Bumble is literally the man of my dreams!! We’ve been married just under a year and we are so happy and in love!! :) :) I'm very grateful I decided to give this app a chance or I may not have ever met this amazing man! I also recommended Bumble to a friend who has found someone she is very happy with and is getting married within the next year! I hope Bumble has continued to be as great as it was back in 2016!! Thank you BUMBLE!!!! <3 <3
Alex Williamson
by Danny Saiz on 2019/02/14 14:16
I’m just here to say that Alex Williamson looks like a mix between a young Sigourney Weaver and Daisy Ridley. I know. Unsolicited opinion. But this is my curse. I see people’s celebrity parents. They don’t know they look famous.

Amazing App, met my fiancé on here
by BrittanyBAE13 on 2019/02/14 12:45
So lemme start with every guy on here getting mad because they don’t get matches so they low score this app; they have tips on how to get matches. You can’t today simply just put blurry pictures of yourself from parties and think you’ll get swipes. Try actually using the bio and don’t just link your other social platforms on it. Now that, that is said, I am a female and have a great time with this app. It’s great that we have to talk within 24 hours because on other dating apps I hate seeing a match and never talking to them because neither one of us wants to message first. Plus I feel like their are hotter guys on this app and more guys who at least wanna go on dates and try the whole relationship thing. just wanted to add, the man i met i on here is now my fiancé and we’re getting married in June:)
Stop keeping matches locked
by Faah Q on 2019/02/14 10:45
Let people match for free it’s stupid you have to pay Tinder is better free super likes on tinder at least

I found my boo boo on this app. Thank you so much, Bumble. And thank you for your backtrack feature!!! Nearly skipped on my baby. I am so grateful for your app.
Pretty buggy
by wintermint89 on 2019/02/14 05:15
There’s a number of annoying bugs that have been around for months: hours left not calculating accurately in all places, backtrack completely not working, app freezing up. The backtrack one is really frustrating because swiping is far more sensitive than other apps. Other than those annoyances it’s a pretty good community for dating. The networking side is a cool idea
Like any other, but encourages bad sentiments
by HarlequinDomination on 2019/02/14 02:25
The prompts they give you are aimed at the specific mentality they advertise for- withdrawn and opinionated. The profile is laid out in an itemized fashion like an o-miai, but without the convenient arranged meeting after a match. The questions they give you to express yourself are geared towards individuals who want to say something without saying anything. Example: Beaches or mountains? At first blush one might think these profile-filler things would do a lot of work for you, but for anybody looking for a casual interaction it’s too pedantic and for those looking for something serious it’s pure frippery. You should not try this app unless you want to meet people trying to come out of their shell through it. All but the very young has been either up their own [business] or loaded down with stuff a habitual tech user wouldn’t be capable of handling. Perhaps your personal mileage might differ- I hope as much- but don’t expect your next life partner to come from this. At best, a new drinking partner. Try the free trial thing right off the bat. If it doesn’t work out, just try striking up conversation with strangers irl. You’ll have better conversations on average, regardless of where it goes.

What’s the point?
by faithbm on 2019/02/13 20:16
I’ve matched with quite a few guys and messaged the ones I was interested in. I’ve only had 3 responses but they stopped talking. Or I message them and I haven’t gotten a reply back. It’s like how is it worth it if nobody see or responds to the message. Plus it’s not too diverse in my area I guess. I keep seeing a lot of guys that are basically the same.
Before the update and seconds after it won’t open
by Wlou2015 on 2019/02/13 18:13
What kind of update was that the app still doesn’t open just stares at the yellow splash screen is that all the app is now is a big fancy yellow splash screen that’s all it is apparently to me

Best Dating app ever!

Definitely the best dating app! Thanks Bumble!!!
Many inactive profiles
by Jabrosckiz on 2019/02/13 02:08
Bumble has a huge amount of inactive profiles to pad their numbers. I’ve even see a friend who has been out of the county for over.

It actually works lol
Confusing
by Hi35893 on 2019/02/12 20:56
Coming to the app cold I found the lack of explanation for how it worked a challenge. I missed connections because it did not tell males how the process worked. I also found very few women near me. Perhaps women have better experiences since it was designed for them. I doubt I will find a match even now somewhat understanding how to respond.
I’m truly blessed
by the bussy on 2019/02/12 17:44
This app is amazing, compared to tinder to tinder it’s godlike. The features that this app offers is consistent and helpful. I truly appreciate the developers (Gods) for this blessing.
It’s a joke.
by nsnmytt on 2019/02/12 17:27
They are discriminate against certain lifestyles by filtering what they let you post. Just go back to tinder, where they let you express who you really are.
Fraudulent accounts and charges.
by jon5232 on 2019/02/12 15:38
Fraudulent company. I was charged without consent. Accounts are fake. Spent 3 days dealing with the company. Their response was not even to look into the case just say nothing is refundable. Beware.
Purely for Technological Issues
by WhatWouldKatyDo on 2019/02/12 14:59
I’ve never had an app open and close or glitch so often. Currently have matches that say they have 19 hours left to message back but when you open a profile, it says 15- kicker? I know there’s only about 2 hours left. Who ever works out the bugs needs to do so ASAP. I’ve had multiple matches disappear (I know this for a fact as one of them found me on Instagram and asked what happened). When I emailed Bumble support to relay that info, I was pretty much brushed aside by them saying nothing was wrong on their end. I love the idea behind Bumble but until they get better programmers and work out these issues, I don’t see the point in using an app that has connections regularly disappear or is difficult to use due to the glitches.
Needs more people of color
by smaiwmmd on 2019/02/12 14:57
That’s not the app’s fault per se. But at the same time, not everyone wants an interracial relationship. If I want to meet a black man specifically, I should be able to do so. Maybe allow filtering? These types of apps already ask you for your race/ethnicity, so why shouldn’t be be able to filter on it to only show races we're interested in dating.
Update: fixed lots of technical problems
by Kenny Winfield on 2019/02/12 12:34
Not perfect but they finally seem to have fixed the infinite loading screen bug.
Catfished from someone on Bumble
by LalalaPOOF on 2019/02/12 07:01
The “Verified” section clearly doesn’t work because I was romances by someone using a fake name and profile on this app. They used a service members photos and after I found the real hero, using Facebook, I outed my so called “flame”. He admitted to being a catfish and said that he was in Nigeria. Be careful out there!
Things I wished I knew before I signed up for 3 months
by Already38 on 2019/02/12 06:22
There is a free version. Of course it’s limited but gives you a better idea of how it works. The filter doesn’t always apply. You get repetitive people so the idea is that you might change your mind even though you have already connected and realize you are not a suitable match for each other. You can’t filter out paid members only.
Complete waste of time.
by ddjjaaggwydt on 2019/02/12 05:35

Location Broken
by RJG179 on 2019/02/12 03:53
The location function is totally broken, at least in western PA it is. I think that it’s going off of post office naming or something, but unless you are in Pittsburgh proper the app comes up with all sorts of seemingly made-up town names. I get lumped in with a town that’s not at all accurate for me, which is a bit of a pain.
Constructive criticism...
by mnschmitz on 2019/02/12 03:36
Bumble, PLEASE give the option to allow guys to chat first. Like some kind of additional on/off private feature. I understand the reasoning behind girls talk first but why not allow the flexibility for those who HATE talking first??? After all, it takes TWO to tango and would boost your sales. Secondly, the distance feature needs an upgrade. I have selected within 10 miles on my filter but still my profile goes out to men 60 miles away who come up on my recent likes. The filter should work both ways if I want to extend the distance I should be able to. Also I should be able to turn off my direct location and have it just say, 14 miles away not 14 miles away in Stephens city, Virginia.” Lastly, living close to the city with 2 international airports nearby, +50% of the men who swipe on me are traveling. It’s such a waste of my time when I’m looking for a relationship with someone who is local. Most users don’t update their profile that they are traveling and only in town for 2 days. How can you improve this??
Too many travelers
by Poljfggbhjjg on 2019/02/12 03:09
OHare is within my 20 miles and the app should default to your original location with a setting to change if you want.
Hook ups
by lorpup on 2019/02/12 02:57
I do not want to be asked if I will have a one night stand or just a hook up or a sugar mama...,all Of this just makes me so uneasy. And nervous... Also there are men That just want sex even tho they are married... I’m just plain tired of all This crap!!!!

I’ve been using it for a while and I don’t match with people that much but I’m fine with that I wish I could get more but it’s not Really the problem. The problem for me is when I do get a match they don’t message me even know they have to first to start the conversation or they do message me then they leave after a day or two of talking and just unmatch or don’t respond anymore. It just makes me feel like it doesn’t work like I know it works for a lot of other people but to me nothing ever works out and it just really adds on more depressed feelings. So if people say your “ugly” or just don’t like you for some reason you probably won’t do good on this app unfortunately.
No Matches unless you pay

Used to be a half decent app.
Nothing Special
by Trantrum on 2019/02/11 23:43
There’s not too much to say. A number of fickle connections. But one shouldn’t have high hope from the site.
User friendly and super helpful!
by PaigeIverson on 2019/02/11 23:09
I’ve been in a relationship since before dating apps were a thing, so I’ve always been intrigued with these things. I downloaded this last night after watching my friend using it for dating and finding out that you can use it to make friends too...I’ve met three people so far who seem like we share a lot in common with. To summarize, this app will help you find what you’re looking for and pretty quickly. I’m grateful there are other aspects to the app besides dating 🙂
Great meet up app!!!!

Stumble thru bumble
by taxauthority on 2019/02/11 21:15
I am stumbling through this bumble app. I watched every YouTube video I could find on YouTube in the hopes it would explain to me the specifics of how it works I got some general ideas but not very specific guidance
Great at first but then completely broke
by CGirlRocks02 on 2019/02/11 19:45
The app was great at first but then all the sudden it deleted my account and said that my phone number or password was invalid. I really don’t want to have to create a new account because I really liked one of the people I was talking to and now I can’t get back to my account.
Bug deletes account
by RadMan2488 on 2019/02/11 17:35
No contact from customer service regarding a bug that deleted account. Enough said.
Good app for dating or hook ups
by katejaneparker on 2019/02/11 16:57
My roomate uses bumble for the weekly hookups but I’ve had decent success with actual dating! It’s easy to use and all of the functions are free unlike some other apps. You can buy super likes or to see you likes you but you don’t ~need~ it. I got the free trial and it was a lot nicer to see though. Four out of five ONLY bc the recent update took away gifs in the conversation and literally everyone wants them back sooo bumble if you’re reading this ;)
Works for the first day, but appears to be a pay-to-play
by Sean-Heller on 2019/02/11 15:57
When I first set up the app, I got two matches and one of them messaged me. So, not a bad start. However, after day 1 I got absolutely no traction. I’m not sure how the algorithm works, but I’ve been careful to be selective in my swiping and actually take time in crafting my profile. I’m photogenic enough to make the cut, so unless I’m competing against Ryan Gosling or something, it appears that you have to pay to really make use of the benefits.
Why I find Bumble to be a joke and why it’s my least favorite app for dating and matchmaking
by DashingJohn on 2019/02/11 13:20
Bumble is a joke, only 24 hour period with an option to extend only once for 24 hours. I basically had 3 matches 3 days in a row all get deleted because of this format. Guys should have the option to make the first move if it gets to be the last 10 hours(like a 2 minute warning), if a female hasn’t made an attempt to make a move, in order to save the match as a last-ditch effort. This is why I have had the least success with bumble compared to other dating apps. Another reason why I hate bumble, why it’s at the bottom of my list of dating match making app, and why I don’t recommend it. Women love it when guys show interest in a first move.
Save your money!
by WillyDIndpls on 2019/02/11 12:41
I set up a reasonable profile, plenty of pictures, and even maxes out the bio. I paid for the boost and paid for spotlight. I live in a big city and usually get at least one “like” on Tinder every time I boost there. Through Bumble I have gotten almost NO matches in spite of swiping on hundreds upon hundreds of women. I paid for the thirty tokens and was spotlighted FIFTEEN times- yet nothing. What an absolute waste of money! No matches at all? What a scam!
Broken Application
by pajama_mane on 2019/02/11 08:40
Permanently can’t get in, been trying for months. I think either an app-breaking bug or i was banned (although i have broken 0 terms of service and am 18+)
Bumble
by Pedro lupe on 2019/02/11 05:52
I personally have not a had success with Bumble. I receive a very low amount of matches and am very displeased with it.
Bait and switch app
by frozenmnpeep on 2019/02/11 04:38
I setup my account 2 days ago. Tonight it showed 10 people as matches. Of course you can’t see the profiles until you pay Bumble subscription. Once I paid for a week magically 7 of the matches disappeared and I still can’t see the remaining three profiles. Buyer beware. Had to give it 1 star to submit a review, really no stars.
Having a issue.
by Agnt Pathos on 2019/02/11 04:19
UPDATE: So I received an email from bumble saying that I was banned because of multiple reports that I was harassing women. What in the world are you guys talking about? I’m lucky to get a match once a week let alone they actually message so that we could stay matched. And not once have I used any foul language in the context of harassing someone. Please bumble. I’m sure you guys have the chat logs saved on your servers. You can see my innocence. I really did like you’re app. One of the better free dating apps. Please give my case a review. Thank you. So I’ve had this app for years now and everything has been fine. Till now. I open bumble and I’m logged out and it wants me to log in. I try to. I log in with the Facebook app which I have done before but when I go from the Facebook app back to bumble I just go back to the log in screen. Please help. And now when I press the log in button nothing happens. Doesn’t even try to open Facebook. And I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling both apps.

Found My Forever
by ssmith161 on 2018/12/31 05:07
I absolutely love Bumble! I now no longer have a need for it but I just want to say it works! After ending a very terrible marriage I often wondered if I was destined to be alone forever. I never thought I would find someone who would want to date me especially with having 4 children. However after some encouragement from friends I took a chance to meet some new people, at first was not even looking for a relationship just looking to meet some men from other areas maybe go on a date or two, nothing to serious. Within a few days time and a handful of conversations with other potentials, I initially didn’t know where using this app was heading. I met quite a few people that just weren’t for me, but then I met my soulmate! He and I hit it off instantly we both knew there was something special going on. Wishing 5 days of meeting we met for our first date and now here we are 6 months later. We are head over heels in love with each other. We now live together in a beautiful home and he just recently proposed! So now I have a fiancé & we are to be married next year! We are so happy and we are both so grateful for your app! I never would have met him if not for Bumble! My fiancé and I use the app now only to send each other messages on our monthly anniversary’s! I encourage everyone to give Bumble a chance!
Just A Couple Of Suggestions
by Tatiana Perry's Computer on 2018/10/12 01:03
I like the new features that have been added. When guys show what they’re looking for it’s easy for me to easily swipe left if they say they just want something casual. However, I find it annoying when there are still guys that come up in my match queue and they don’t want a relationship. I know it’s out of the app designer’s control that guys are too lazy to actually see what girls are looking for, but I wish it was more obvious like putting a big ol’ stamp on someone’s profile lol. Just a joke...unless you can do it. In the past I tried to put a picture of myself holding a small note that says I’m not interested in hookups to make it more obvious for the guys, but according to Bumble that’s not appropriate because they “can’t see me”. I find that annoying as there are some guys I’ve seen only use memes on their profile or wear sunglasses and/or hats in all of their photos. I don’t mind the hats...but the sunglasses, at least in my opinion, can hide one’s identity. I want to see a guy’s full face. Is it possible to put a limit on how many photos are posted wearing sunglasses or maybe just ban them? Oh and it’d be great to have the option to find guy friends as well on Bumble BFF. I also noticed there’s a character limit to the messages I try to send. Is it possible to have unlimited characters or be like Twitter and show when I’ve typed too much?
Do NOT pay for this app!
by bumble scam on 2018/10/16 11:32
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!!!!
Feel Unsafe
by JCsAunty on 2018/07/21 00:55
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.
The worst dating app I’ve ever used.
by Gale22 on 2018/11/09 17:53
I find it very odd that every guy I’ve matched has either never talked or we start talking and I suddenly never hear back from them again. I’ve only exchanged numbers with two guys on this app and one suddenly disappears after we talked all night and he agreed to take me surfing and the other guy stops talking. All the guys I’ve matched with stop talking mid conversation this has happened 100 percent of the time. I’ve had at least 12+ matches and have been using this app for about a week, I’d say I’m a very attractive woman and have never had problems getting a date so I find it odd that this has happened every single time. The Bumble Bff does this as well but not as badly so I’ve stopped using the dating side of Bumble as it’s super suspect and I haven’t had any success with any of the guys I’ve matched with. I also think their are quite a few fake profiles as well but seeing all the bad reviews I’m starting to believe this app is just trying to get you to spend money as it takes so many swipes just to see whose liked you. Mine said I had 50+ likes and it stayed that way because Bumble won’t reveal even one of them for a very long time unless you pay for an upgrade. I find it odd that I can’t match with any rally handsome guys on the app but when I go out I attract good looking guys all the time. Anyways I just wanted everyone to know my experience. It’s not you, it’s this app.
Great Concept, Great App!
by 3.1415926542 on 2018/05/17 00:59
First of all, how great is it that you can now find a date, friends, and a business partner all in one app?! I can’t speak from a guy’s perspective, but having had this app for almost 2 years, I can say that it’s an absolute game changer. I love the concept that ladies get the first move, which as an introvert, I have come to appreciate; It has taught me to be brave and creative when starting conversations with strangers lol. It seems like most people on here are genuine, although I do wish there was just a bit more diversity. I love the time limit concept on the matches, it’s quite ingenious. It creates a sense of urgency which is great but also has its cons. The app itself is smooth and very user friendly, plus the no limits on swiping is just the icing on the cake. If you don’t have a paid subscription however, which allows you to see everyone that swiped right on you (amongst other great perks I’m sure), it can be easy to waste a lot of time on the app just swiping. They also notify users with cute little positive messages and tips every so often and I love it. I haven’t had any major problems with the app, but I have met some pretty cool people, so don’t sleep on bumble ya’ll 💯
Bumble Isn’t For Dating - And Neither Are Any “Dating” Apps
by EeveesLife on 2019/01/12 18:28
I’ve been in and out of the dating app scene for a while now. I’ve been back and forth with Bumble the most, I’d say about 10 times or more I’ve rejoined the app with the hope of finding someone special. And through several encounters and matches, I’ve drawn the conclusion that finding the love of your life is 99.8% unlikely through these kinds of apps. Why? Because it is unfortunately extremely common for men and women to lie about their intentions to get what they want from you, then to disappear or shift attitudes out of nowhere if you don’t. Even on this app with having stated my intentions (long term dating, no hookups and no games), I’ve only encountered people that want to be FWBs or just have a sexual encounter then disappear. And I’ve matched with literally hundreds of people. So, you might be able to imagine my frustration that every one of these matches wound up having a similar end game. People on these apps will pretend to be well-rounded, kind, sincere, and romantic, but when push comes to shove, they’re lazy, uninteresting, crude and perverted. I’ve been met with nothing but disappointments on this app, even after having paid for a membership to see if that might help my pursuit of romance at all. But it just left a hole in my bank account. I’ve never been more discouraged about dating in my life til this app. I’ll stick to seeking someone out in person from now on.
Waste of money
by Wontletmeputanythinginhere on 2018/09/18 22:21
I randomly get push notifications saying I have a match, but no match. Or the latest saying I won’t be shown to women looking through the app. Unsure why you’d ever want to notify me of this. I’ve paid for this app for about a year and had 0 success. Any like I give to a girl is wasted because they don’t see my profile. After months of receiving no likes or matches, I messaged them. There was no help, and instead I was told I’m stupid and wrong. Very off brand for Bumble, and very off putting in general. Then a few weeks later I had 100s of people who had liked me all in matter of hours. - I’m on other apps, I receive likes and matches so I knew something was wrong and then bam it was fixed. I still don’t receive any forward matches though - if someone likes me, I can match with them - but if I like them, I’ll never see them because they don’t see me. This app is a sham and unethical. Stop messing with algorithms and make it simple - you like someone, they see you automatically. I’m confident when my subscription runs out I’ll be treated normally by their software but once you pay them they want you to keep paying them - being in a relationship is a fast way to stop those payments. It’s in their biz interest to have paying customers receive no likes. Honestly Apple and google shouldn’t distribute this app if that’s true, they’re unethical and don’t practice what they preach.
Can't Match/Guys Are Lazy
by AbbySoSo on 2018/09/30 04:16
I'm going to make this short and simple. I've been on this app like five times before, and although I've met some incredible people and had some great times, I say that online dating is risky. It's for people who are lonely for some specific reason and want company, but don't necessarily want to date. That's not the apps fault, but I just want anyone who's reading this to know that if things don't work out it's not you, it's just online dating. Now on to technical issues and the men on there. I've logged on with my Facebook, and I put ton of care into my bio, even putting attractive photos and I haven't matched with anyone. I know how this sounds lol but I honestly think my phone or the app is broken (at least for my profile). I tested this my liking a whole bunch of profiles, even guys I'm not interested in (or dtf guys) and still nothing. It's been three days! Not one like. It's kinda peculiar. When I was on here before, within 24 hours there would be tons of matches, but now it's not working. Also, I think bumble should allow both parties to message first because it's too much pressure on me to always message first and then sometimes get nothing, because the dude believes he has to be chased and sold. It's weird. In conclusion, I'm going to try tinder.
Do not waste your money
by Oanhster on 2018/08/19 22:59
Bumble is the worst dating app I have ever used, period. I have used most of the other ones, and have found much more success on practically every other site. Bumble ropes you in with the idea that it is a feminist dating app, but whether by design or not, this really only benefits the guys. Even then, I have come across several reviews from men online stating that they are not having much success with the app either, so I am assuming it only really benefits very attractive guys. As a woman who has not had any issues meeting men on on other dating sites, my biggest problem with this app is that it makes men lazy. The guys who are actually having women message them first don’t put in any effort in conversations, and It’s like the men on this site literally do not know how to hold a conversation and expect the woman to do all the work. Just because the woman is expected to send the first message, does not mean that you should simply forget how to talk like a normal human being. I am also suspicious that many of the attractive men and attractive women on this site, a lot of the profiles are fake profiles. I’ve done some searches of reviews, and this seems to be the general consensus that many people believe. Don’t waste your money and find another dating app; there are plenty out there that will help you successfully meet more people without being so frustrating and irritating to use.
Only Allowed to Make Friends w/same Gender
by Clay Carveth Dain on 2019/01/05 13:04
I used to have this app to try and look for a date, but after getting a boyfriend (not through Bumble) I decided to look for friends to match with instead. To my disappointment, you can apparently only match with friends of the same gender. I am male, but I identify as agender (meaning I just don’t really feel a connection to the concept of gender). This meant that it just kept suggesting me regular men who were typically straight. Now I don’t hate straight men, but I have so much more in common with women, trans people, and non-binary folks, not to mention men are statistically significantly more violent towards people like me, especially in a conservative state like mine. I have emailed Bumble about it because I was confused as to why no women were showing up, and they basically said they had no intention of changing it. Assuming that males can only be friends with other males and females can only be friends with other females is incredible heteronormative and sexist. I liked everything else about the app, but couldn’t even use it because I had no friends to match with. It would really be as simple as just adding the option to choose which genders show up in the friends part. I mean, you can match with both men and women when looking for relationships, but not friends? That hardly makes sense.
Better than the other apps but...
by SistaSista44 on 2018/10/26 10:31
I’ve been on this app for awhile now sadly and I like the way it has evolved in regards to making the actual profile but it’s still the same problems from before. You can’t block people in general unless it’s something specific like stolen photo or if they made you feel uncomfortable. It would be great if you could block anytime because I’ve been seeing the same people that have maybe never responded or I don’t want to match with but they keep showing up in my boost. It’s really annoying. It would also be great if there was a way to filter guys by their choices in their profile. For example only seeing guys that want a relationship or don’t drink. It would make it easier for people to find the right match for them instead of wasting time swiping through unfinished profiles or guys that just want something causal. Another issue I have is the radius for the boost. I’ve been traveling a bit and I’m getting guys from PA, LA, DE when I live in DC. Its really exhausting having to check what states these guys live in when my radius is max 10 miles. I know the developers or whoever don’t want people to be close minded and all but I would rather not have a long distance relationship and would only like to meet local people!
Diversity & Interracial Dating Nonexistent
by raylie_rae on 2018/10/16 19:02
I think there should be a place that shows what ethnicity guys are interested in. I only say that because I am a black woman and there’s mostly white guys on here. And most white guys (especially in the South where I live) aren’t interested in talking to, let alone dating a black woman. It would be very helpful to have a “Who I’m looking for” feature on the guys’ profile. That way black women like myself are not having to guess on whether a guy would like me or not because of the color of my skin. (I found myself trying to see if a guy had black friends based upon his profile pictures or if he listened to black artists just to make a guess on whether he would even like me). My experience on Bumble made me feel undesirable & like I wasn’t even meant to be on here in the first place. And if that’s truly the case, I think it should be clarified in the App Store that this app is only for white people (I don’t mean to be cynical. I’m just being honest 🤷🏽‍♀️) I swiped right on a lot of white guys on here and none of them swiped right on me. The only person who did swipe right on me was the only black guy that I seen on here. Imagine that! I just think it would be easier to know beforehand if I had a chance of a guy outside my race liking me instead of just performing endless swipes on guys who wasn’t going to like me in the first place just because I am black.
Features broken. Not woman friendly.
by Nicknamegirl1000 on 2018/04/25 14:17
Their "block" feature is broken. I blocked my co-worker (so awkward) then a few swipes later he popped up again. This happened with different people mind you. This isn't a very 'woman friendly' app after all. Also if men can extend 24 hours why can't women if a guy doesn't respond? I used to love this app for dating but with the block feature broken it's terrible and false advertising. Blocking doesn’t work and women can’t extend a match once you say hi. Bumble has responded and it’s bologna. Their block feature is broken as this has happened repeatedly (no they didn’t make new profiles this happens all the time in the same week I block every guy I see that I know and lo and behold he pops back up) and I as a woman can’t extend once I say hi and they don’t check their phone within 24 hours. Maybe I want to extend and am powerless to do so. I get way more matches on tinder and okcupid something about bumbles algorithm isn’t set up for successful matching and I’m a paying member. Their super swipe is a complete waste too. The person never sees it! I was super swiped by a guy and because I paid I could see him up top in green with a heart. I waited for a week of swiping to see if he’d show up as a match and he never did. Now I feel foolish for wasting the $2 on guys who never even saw me. You’d think it would push the match to the front of the line.
New Match Queue Feature
by trkgrl1100 on 2018/08/27 02:37
I guess they added a feature for the Bumble Boost Match Queue, that keeps people in the queue that swiped on you and then left town, or keeps people in your queue who swiped on you when you were out of town. Since they rolled out this new feature, over half of the guys in my match queue are super far away from me. I have my search radius set to 50 miles away. I’m getting guys in my queue who are 100+ miles away. I live in Oklahoma and I have guys still in my queue from FLORIDA that I assume are there from my vacation back in JUNE. I also have guys from Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, and have gotten several from Texas and Colorado. This feature is AWFUL. If other people want to set their search radius for super far away, fine. But if mine is set to 50 miles, I don’t want to see ANYONE outside that radius! Even if I was in the same town as they were for a short period of time, and even if they swiped on me. If I had wanted to see who was available while I was in Florida, I would have opened the app to look. But I wasn’t interested in guys halfway across the country then, and I’m not interested in them now. It’s been an absolute chore to try and weed through them, but it never seems to end and honestly, I’m exhausted! I hope they fine tune this feature or give us an option to turn it off.
Block Feature Doesn’t Work; Horrible Customer Service
by Heathbar-13 on 2018/08/02 16:09
I’ve reached out multiple times to Bumble, and I’ve never received a response. I’ve even sent them screenshots (since I can’t send screen recordings) that prove their Block feature does not work. I can Block someone, then see that same person within a week. Actually, I blocked someone last night, and this morning, guess what... there they were in my search again! The Block feature isn’t for paying members only, but guess what, I AM a paying member. So I can see these people I’ve blocked in my Bee-line AND in my search. Obviously you’re not treated any better or with anymore priority if you’re a PAYING member. So poor customer service is going to be equally distributed between non-paying and paying members. Notifications come through sometimes, sometimes I just have to go into the app to see the message. Location feature isn’t accurate either, and conflicting at times. I can have someone “4 miles away” in DFW, but they’re listed as also being at a Florida airport. That’s literally impossible. Bumble did a whole campaign against guns being displayed in pictures, but they could care less about bloodied hunted and fished animals in pictures. No blood=bad, Blood=good. Tell me how that makes sense. 😒
Tinder for lazy men
by ChiHikerGirl on 2018/07/03 14:58
I love that Bumble is supposed to be female driven and has the policies of no tolerance to inappropriate behavior. But in practice, I’ve had far more luck making genuine connections on other apps. It seems like men swipe right on everyone but then decide if they’re actually going to respond if you reach out. The response rate even though we’ve matched is really low and the conversations even when I’ve tried to drive them are lackluster. I’m still seeing just as many profiles that indicate they want a hookup or nothing serious. Not something the app is responsible for, just an observation that the promise of putting women in control doesn’t seem to solve some of the problems of lazy men. The 24 hour time limit is also, while well-intentioned, frustrating without a hold button. I like to go backpacking, which is an activity that takes me off the grid. But if I match during that time I either have to pay for a redo or let a match go by. It doesn’t seem to value busy people. A feature that would let you put your profile into “away” mode seems like it could be really useful in helping to let busy, interesting people meet one another without looking disinterested.
No matches
by headbusta36 on 2019/01/20 05:21
I’ve subscribed to this app a few times in the past, and I keep seeing a pop-up that says subscribe to see people who already like you. In my opinion Bumble is better than the other useless dating apps, but there’s a huge flaw. I NEVER HAVE ANY MATCHES!!! I’ve unsubscribed before in the past because the app said I had matches and when I clicked on them; nothing was there. Kept it for a few days after then unsubscribes. Downloaded again a few months later to see if it might actually work this time and show me people that’ve actually swiped on me. Low and behold “You have matches” popped up, I clicked on matches, and NO MATCHES again. At this point I’m just wasting my money subscribing, because without the subscription obviously you can’t see who liked you, or anything. Well you can’t see your matches when you subscribe either. What’s the point of having the thing if I’m just swiping with no results. Bumble Support before you reply back, yes I have the latest IPhone software and app update, deleted the app and downloaded again. If it’s a programming problem then it should be an easy fix; if not, then people are losing their money because y’all have everyone subscribed to see matches and everything else with a subscription just to turn around and get nothing in return.
Worst dating app ever
by desdemon6 on 2018/10/03 15:21
Like other users, I have to say this is the worst dating app/site I have ever used. Even though men are swiping right on you, if you message them almost none of them ever respond. And if they do, it’s usually just one word answers and then they unmatch you. I think this concept is flawed. Men don’t seem to like having a woman message them first, even though that’s the concept of the site they signed up for. And if you do, which you would think was flattering that someone wants to get to know them, they act like you’re some crazy person bothering them. I think men see this as revenge for all the other sites where they get ignored by women, because I’ve seen several profiles that say, “Come up with something better than ‘Hi’ or ‘How are you?’” or “Must be over a 7” or “$100 to any woman who can write a profile without saying ‘travel’, ‘wanderlust’ or ‘no hookups’”. I have been using it for months and have not come across any men who actually want to meet someone, I think they just use it as a swiping game to see how many matches they can get, but if you actually try to contact them, they ignore you. I think the only way to make this app come even close to the already low success rate of other apps/sites is to just let men contact women.
New Changes Take Away User Control
by AngelaLDi on 2018/10/08 14:54
I took a break from Bumble earlier this year and last night I signed in and reactivated my profile. First, before expressing what REALLY bothered me about the new update, I want to say I was disappointed in the new layout as I think men prefer something less fussy and less complicated, so the theatrics of the new layout could be a turn off or have them engaging less. Heck, even I think it’s overkill! But what REALLY disappointed me was that the developers took away two key features: shaking to undo a left swipe AND - MORE IMPORTANTLY - the ability to block any profile without reasons of abuse or harassment. If I see an ex-boyfriend, his brother/other relative, his best friend OR I see my neighbor, co-worker - really ANYONE that I just don’t want knowing my business or that I am trying to date...well, I should be able to block profiles for any reason. While abuse/harassment is of paramount concern SO IS PRIVACY. And I don’t want/need the guy I dated last Summer and it just didn’t work out, to know I’m back in the dating game. It was a great feature (along with the ability to undo a left swipe) and it’s the change of these two features that made me immediately hide my profile and say, ‘No thanks, Bumble’.
I don’t normally review apps, but...
by Brookecory on 2018/11/29 02:02
I do have a few things to say about Bumble. First, I love that it’s so female driven. I’ve done a lot of dating apps (and still do!), yet Bumble is by far my favorite. It helps me work up the courage to approach the guy for a change. More than half the time they don’t answer, but I can’t do anything about that. That being said, I’d like to comment on some new features I noticed and give some feedback. I love that you can add like quirks about yourself ie. perfect first date, two truths and a lie, etc. I also love that you can now see what people are looking for, religious preferences, if they want children and the like. What I think would be cool to see is if you could filter people based off these features. I’m currently looking for someone who wants a relationship, but has no interest in having kids in the future and I find that it’s a pain to have to sort through all the people who aren’t looking for the same. It makes the dating process even more of a pain. Just a thought. Everything else about the app is great and hopefully I’ll eventually find someone on it!
Sneaky Bumble pushing their Premium Service
by NBCloper on 2018/11/29 21:21
TLDR: burying profiles of those who like you so you spend money on their “see who liked you” service So I’ve been a long time user and recently noticed something that didn’t sit too well. Bumble usually does a pretty good job of letting you know when you’re liked, but recently I noticed they have been giving accounts that “like you” but no matter how much you swipe.. you’ll never see them. At first I was confused after hitting the “no more people around you” message and bumble was still saying someone liked you. Then I realized almost every third card or swipe I got was an ad promoting their premium service and the ability to “see who likes you”. That’s when I realized they’re just putting either a fake picture in the “people who like you” box, or their burying an actual person who does like you in order for your curiosity or frustration to push you into buying their premium. I get it bumble, a premium service is a good idea for some. But this somehow feels underhanded or sneaky to me and I’m not a fan. Definitely still going to use the app lol but not as enthusiastically as before
Either I’m Undesirable or this app is Rigged
by Beau Stine on 2018/11/06 15:50
I’ve been on this app on and off for a short while. I consider myself a decent looking guy, at least a 7 on a rating scale looks wise, I work hard to develop good qualities that I would like to see in myself that would make a woman happy and investing there time in me worth while. But I’ve found that I very rarely get any matches on this app, and when I do it’s almost always after I’ve uncaringly swiped right for 5-10 minutes consecutively, just to see if this app really does work lol, and then I end up matching with women I don’t really like... I am 5’5”, so I don’t know if that has a huge part in my lack of success, but I can’t help but feel that dating apps these days are favoring those who invest in the upgraded version of the app. Which makes sense on a business stand point, but makes me feel that these apps are just a wast of time... and I just don’t feel like throwing $15 away to “potentially” find a decent woman based off some algorithmic process that is out of my control. Perhaps the old fashion way of just approaching women at group activities, through friend hangouts, and random encounters is the better way to go?
Option to opt out of sending the first message?
by HugeAssWall on 2018/09/06 05:12
I’ve had this app for a few days now and so far I love it! I’m finding that the general population of men on this app are actually a lot more frequently guys that I would actually go out with than men on tinder! I also really love that matches disappear after 24 hours if a conversation isn’t started. It actually makes you engage with other users and helps keep my match feed clean and updated! My biggest request though is that I think it would be really useful to have the option to opt out of the “women have to send the first message” thing. I get it, it’s a great idea, but sometimes I get so busy or I just can’t think of anything interesting enough to say (I don’t want to use a generic “hey”) and my match disappears! I end up feeling like I potentially missed out on a really great guy or wondering if they had anything interesting they would have said to me first. Just a suggestion, but I think the ability to opt out would be a great feature! Otherwise I totally love this app! MUCH more worth your time than Tinder.
Waste of Time
by dieockfofjen on 2019/01/01 20:53
Bumble will ban users for no reason and no explanation at all. The ban is permanent. Women can also do no wrong on this app. The obvious prostitutes and women with engagement rings on their fingers don’t get banned, but a picture of The Beatles at Tittenhurst Park will get you banned for life, which is the case of me. I had other pictures of course. Even when I was on the app I couldn’t stand it. I did not have an issue as far as matching with people. When you first download this app you be matched pretty quickly with about 10 people to start assuming you’re a normal person. I truly believe these are test accounts just to get your confidence up. After that, matches are hard to come by. And they’re hard to come by because any woman who is REMOTELY ATTRACTIVE will be matched with 100+ guys in less than 20 seconds. This is absolutely true. Pretty soon it’s in the thousands and these women will not scroll through the waiting list to find you. Don’t blame them. Women have 24 hours to respond to a march. I’ve matched with a decent amount of people. I’ve never had someone actually send a message. Women rarely approach guys in person or initiate a conversation to strangers in person. What makes Bumble think they’ll do it on an app?
24 hour rule is outdated.
by Jpress4 on 2018/12/18 15:38
Bumble does what it can to bring quality to dating via online. I think some improvements could be made with the 24 hour response rule. This just is simply too short of a window. Bumble promotes the app as a woman empowered app where we should go out in the world and be the baddest Bees we can be! Yet, we’re supposed to be tied to our phone waiting for that match to come in and then message within 24 hours. I feel this goes against what Bumble preaches. Sometimes I’m a busy bee taking on the world at work and don’t have time to message someone within 24hours and the same for the bumble guys. I think not sitting on a match forever is right on but I suggest a “3-day rule” for initial responses. Give people time to have balance with dating and other life responsibilities. The app says if a match expires you can have a chance to match again but why would I swipe again on a person that either ignored me or ran out of time the first time? That basically makes women continue to throw themselves at men... just saying.
Almost perfect
by wb1992forever on 2018/08/16 14:52
I really like this app. It’s got a tinder feel to it with all of the left and right swiping, but I feel like I run across better quality people (for the most part anyway, let’s be real here lol), and not everyone is wanting just a hookup. I also love the fact that I have to be the one to initiate the conversation. No more being bombarded with unwanted or creepy messages 😂. I didn’t like this feature at first, but now I’ve come to appreciate it. One of the major downfalls is even though I said yes to getting notified of new messages, I only get notified about 70% of the time. And other people I’ve talked to have had the same issue. On top of that, there’s not time stamp on the messages, so you have no idea how long a message has been sitting in your inbox if/when you don’t get notified and run across it. And then one improvement to the profile that I’d love to see, is an area to put what you’re really there for. A relationship? Hookup? Friends? A serious relationship? Dating? It helps weed out what you don’t want faster.
In short...pointless
by It crashes every 5 seconds on 2018/08/09 12:02
As a guy, I don’t mind, and actually support the idea of women being the ones to decide whether a conversation occurs or not. I know how annoying a lot of guys can be on this sort of app. The only thing is, if a guy is even slightly picky about who he wants to talk to, the chances of them finding and choosing you as well are infinitesimally small. First, because you might simply be a long way through their list of matches. Second, you might just not be their type. Third, profiles hardly fit enough information to really know who you’re talking to. Then last, because the given person may not even be active, and there’s no way to know when or if they have been. This leads to a lot of guys just right-swiping everyone, which is more an abuse of the app than anything else. So if this app is ever going to become practical, (it really isn’t now) it needs to incorporate some information into the match-finding process, (putting more likely matches in their according positions) and either indicate when someone has been active, or add a filter of some sort to push back profiles that haven’t been active for a while.
Do not waste your time
by dropnurtop on 2018/07/12 22:42
Good thing I only paid for one week. Read some of the reviews. “I’ve been using this app for a couple years and I love the way it puts the women in control making the first move”. I didn’t read any thing about meeting actually someone and forming a relationship. Most of the people on here I would have to say are real. But as far as anybody getting any notifications that would ruin the developers game. Cause if they actually notified all the beautiful women every time somebody swiped to right meaning yes eventually and sooner than later she would be gone. You don’t hear anybody talking about how they met the love of their life on here. Or even anything being mentioned how anybody has met people that they are now great friends. I would get notifications saying someone is interested in you. Hurry up and start searching your next swipe could be a match. Common.... really. Then if that’s not bad enough I extended the distance to the max which is 100 miles and I ran out of searches. I have no idea how they have a 4.1 out 5 rating. And 24 hours is not long enough for a person to respond. These days people are very busy. And do not take the time to open this app every single day.
Bugs
by ThAdEa82 on 2018/12/11 12:22
Some profiles never come up and get stuck. Once this happens, you won’t get any matches for a long while defeating the purpose. Update 8/15. Someone that the app says is interested never comes up to be able to match. Bugs still not fixed. Don’t hold up my matches if you’re going to give them 24 hours to respond. It’s not my fault some people sit on a connection. Now on the misandrist attacks on here. A lot of women on a lot of dating sites can’t hold a conversation. One could say it makes them lazy as well having thousands of guys to choose from. Not too fun having the tables turned is it? Also for the one saying guys respond only after a connection is made...guess what, they don’t know who is liking them plus there are tons of fake profiles. When they do see who is liking them after swiping right a million times, more likely that not, it’s someone looking for someone exceedingly out of their league. Go figure. 12/10. Never fixed issue where you can’t remove a person that likes you that lives over 100 miles away that you can not see which takes away from the 3 people you get when they decide to make you profile visible to others for them to swipe.
Bumble🐝
by MakennaSwaggy on 2018/10/31 01:42
I’ve been using bumble for a while now and I love it because I feel like it’s less for hook-ups and more for actually meeting people and getting to know them. But, I do have some friends who enjoy it so I decided to download it today and give it a try. A few hours later I saw an error message and found out that I was banned. This confused me because I did not have any nudity, hate, violence, etc. In fact, I actually had written “no hookups” in my bio because I’m not like that. With that being said, I wold recommend getting bumble over tinder any day. I love bumble for MANY reasons: 1) they don’t ban you for no reason without telling you why 2) the customer support is great and helpful 3) I’ve actually met a lot of cool people and made some really good friends! 4) I’m glad there are different modes. I like being able to switch between bumble date and bumble bff. My friend Kayla and I met on bumble and went out a couple times and now we’re like best friends.
User friendly but not great and don’t pay for upgraded features
by Kim153716 on 2018/09/30 06:58
Almost every negative review is correct. I paid (mainly out of curiosity) to see who had already swiped right since there were so many. I reached out to some to which I usually got no response. I started to get suspicious when I’d see new matches appear in real time so I’d contact them right away, sometimes just asking “Are you real” since they literally just “alleged” swiped right and when I automatically messaged them, I got no response. If you pay, test it, you’ll see. It seems as though Bumble “entices” you by telling you you have a million awaiting matches so pay and when you do, almost none are real (or don’t respond). The odds of that happening are very high, way too high for there not to be something going on with Bumble behind the scenes. If you want to play around, as I said, it is user friendly and the recent upgrades that allow you to put height, political affiliations etc. is long overdue, but if you pay for upgrades, don’t expect much. Lastly, I agree that you should be be allowed to be on the app without a written profile.
Months later still haven’t met anyone
by ecwhitman on 2018/05/27 22:36
But that’s mostly due to the fact that apparently all of the girls in my city just want to get drunk, and that’s not my cup of tea. I’m not blaming BumbleBFF for uninteresting people. I think my biggest problem with the app is that your matches expire so quickly. My schedule is all over the place, and I often miss out on matches because I didn’t have time to check it for a couple of days. I don’t see how that feature is necessary. Another issue is the fact that there doesn’t seem to be anyone checking the profiles to remove/temporarily disable users that have been inactive for a very long time or have straight-up lied on their profile. I’ve seen several that have an age listed, but in their bio blatantly claim that the age is a lie & they are much younger than they say they are. Maybe, there should also be a reminder that pops up when people use the app in a new physical location to update their bio because I see a TON of profiles where the bio says, “Just moved to (insert place 2,000 miles away) and looking for new friends,” but the profile says they’re only like 7 miles away.
False advertising
by Flower ball on 2018/09/23 23:24
I redownloaded the app a while ago and after every few swipes there was an ad for a “free trial” for bumble boost. It was annoying to constantly have it pop up so I figured I’d give it a try. Come to find out that I was automatically charged for a 3 month subscription. It should have clearly been stated that I was not eligible for the free trial (bc apparently I had tried it years ago even though I don’t remember) but instead they just automatically charge you. This is false advertising!!! I realized this one hour into it and tried to email bumble and cancel and this is what bumble responded with “The reason this instant charge happened was because Apple deemed you not eligible for a trial, possibly because you have already had one previously for Bumble under a different account. In this case it is Apple that chooses to charge you immediately and that's unfortunately out of our control.” I asked if they couldn’t cancel it entirely to at least switch me to a one month subscription but they said no. How did they decide to sign me up for the 3 month versus at least a 1 month trial?? This is very misleading and deceptive. So shady and money hungry.
Excludes Trans People
by ___brolin___ on 2019/01/28 02:03
I’d love to give it more than 1 star, but I am forced to give it only 1 based on what I am about to say. I am a female-born NCAA athlete in a women’s sport who first used Bumble Dating in 2017 and made my profile under the gender option of “Woman” and used it for a bit. I recently downloaded Bumble again for the BFF mode. Being “out” as a trans athlete has been risky but I wanted to change my gender to male because that is how I have always identified and I now feel more comfortable being out. You’d think, okay, that should be easy enough. Nope. My profile has been “photo-verified” for the previous gender of “woman”, so I have to contact support in order to change it now. Besides the fact that it’s VERY exclusive to trans people, who may identify as non-binary or something outside the man/woman binary, it’s ridiculously dumb. I should be able to change my gender to match how I identify without the hassle of contacting support. This app should be more inclusive for those who may have atypical life experiences and who aren’t just “men” or “women”. Unless there was some sort of adjustment for that, I will always see this as a 1 star app and I’ll make it known that I believe it to be unfair.
🛑STAY🚫AWAY🛑
by Art739195762829000000 on 2019/01/24 21:48
0 stars. So I’ve been using the app for about 2 weeks and after that I got blocked. Not really sure why or how. This app isn’t really all that great for a major fact that you could potentially be swiping on bots. Another deterrent I came across are transgenders... I’m just not into that. After a while I started to become offended being that my gender preference is female, I’m simply not swiping right on a male that thinks they are a female... who wouldn’t get offended? Does anyone understand me? BUT bumble thought otherwise. So I keep swiping testing my luck. I get a match with someone I’ve matched before with; to only unmatched and or blocked/reported. I would get a match notification to find out the person either unmatched and or blocked/reported me. Today I found out that if you get unmatched enough you get blocked... Another thing is, the matches don’t seem to say anything at all. Some matches message and then?! nothing!!! 😂🤷🏽‍♂️ I send a message after they do, BOOM unmatched and or block/report. 🤦🏽‍♂️ The women are not all that friendly on the app. This app is a tremendous void. Bumble what do we do?🤷🏽‍♂️ What do you recommend? 🤷🏽‍♂️ Can you unblock my account? 🤷🏽‍♂️
Used to love paid version
by samdig1 on 2018/09/11 20:55
I used to really like the “beeline” feature on the paid version of this app. Beeline basically shows you people who have already swiped right on you. Used to be great because it wouldn’t show people outside of your search radius. Now, if you have beeline, it just shows you everyone who’s ever swiped right on you regardless of your location. I have people on my beeline who live in other states and the majority of them live way too far for me to want to invest in talking to them and meeting them. The worst part is beeline doesn’t even organize your bees in geographical order so I have to basically sift through bees until I find one that I am also interested in who also lives close enough to me to invest some time in. When I wrote bumble about this they told me this was helping people find better dates. For someone like me who works a lot and doesn’t have a lot of free time, I’d much prefer to be able to set a radius on potential matches. At least organize bees in geographical order! I definitely won’t be renewing my subscription unless something is done about this.
Paid for it and don’t get the features...
by hrh1013 on 2018/05/24 20:57
I’m not one to write reviews, but I’ve been disappointed by the fact that I paid for the app in order to be able to “beeline” to the guys who’ve swiped right to get them at the front of the queue. However, I’ve noticed that when I’ve had several guys in the queue with the green circle around them, they’ll all disappear out of nowhere, and several times when I’ve pushed “not interested” in one guy who’s swiped right, it’ll make all of the green circled guys go away (before I even got to look at their profiles, and they were all from the same city...not all traveling out of the city at the exact same time). I downloaded Hinge 3 or 4 days ago and already have so many more matches and likes than Bumble, and what finally made me write this review is that a guy messaged me that he had swiped right on me on Bumble (only to go into Bumble to prove my theory that the beeline doesn’t work properly). Not sure what’s going on with the Bumble app, but have been highly disappointed that I paid for it and don’t get the benefits that come with paying for it. :(
Great dating app but needs improvement
by Bseal29 on 2019/01/29 07:00
So far Bumble is the best dating app Ive used. Ive met a lot of real women and had a lot of great dates. However, my biggest complaint is that you cant set a permanent city where you live. Which is so frustrating because I travel a lot for work as well as go to a lot of sporting events, concerts, and conferences in various cities. And each time I do so, I match with a TON of women from those cities where Im visiting then when I get home, they're like wait you don't live here?! (in the city where we match) and Im like no I live such and such place and they're like I don't want a long distance relationship (even though Im always less than 3 hours away from where they live) and they say I deceived them or wasn't honest about where I live. And Im like, no the app stalked me and said my current city was Orlando or wherever I was that day, but I really live in Ft Meyers sorry about that. So it would be helpful if you allowed us to set our home city instead of changing it every time we get in our car and go somewhere. Thanks!
Great for women! Not for men!
by Your Mom™ on 2018/12/31 18:04
This app is a fantastic idea, it kind of lowers my self-esteem a bit. Not the app’s fault. Which is exactly why it’s self esteem lowering. I dated a lot in high school, and I was excited to try out this app. Once I got online, I carefully analyzed every profile and swiped left or right based on compatibility. “Oh this girl smokes? No thank you.” “Aww! Look at that girl’s dog! Swipe” “I like this girl’s idea of a good date. Let’s see if we match.” 3 days into the app. I started swiping right on everyone. I ended up getting 3 matches. 1-My friend who told me to get the app. 2-A girl who called me a manwhore 3 years ago in high school. And 3-A crazy girl that I rejected my junior year 4 years ago. So people I knew matched with me. It makes me wonder if i’m not attractive enough. My friend who is a girl told me “Oh I got 40 matches in one day” is kind of discouraging. Yes- guys are a lot thirstier than girls- but...It seems like girls use this mainly to see how many matches they can get. It doesn’t help that there are so many creepy guys on here though. The app just isn’t for me. It’s very hard to be a guy nowadays on dating apps.
Bee #1 & Bring Giphy Back!!
by MeowoeM TM on 2018/12/08 15:05
Too all YOU reviewers beeing negative nancies: Sadly, I loved this app way more when they had gifs BECAUSE it actually showed a sense of humor and light heartedness when words fell short with miscommunication. (Why I only gave a 3 star rating) However, it’s challenged me to try new ways to look more appealing in text. Words are definitely powerful. Also, if you know exactly the personality type of man / woman you want, then put yourself in their shoes and think about what they want to see not what YOU want to show them. If you can figure out this you’ll have more matches than ever! I believe in keeping things simple. Paying for the package or not. There’s ways to allure that person. Just get into their mind... half of the time it’s right there in your face on their actual profile... study these things... happy swiping! And quit blaming the app for people that don’t even deserve your attention anyway.. there’s probably a good reason you don’t match and bee thankful sometime it’s just meant to bee that way. :-)
Waste of Time
by gml769 on 2018/08/03 02:50
I deleted my profile after about a month when suddenly I was flooded with profiles of very undesirable men. It is very hard to match with people and when you do almost 100% of the time the conversations never go anywhere and people don’t respond. I really don’t get what the point is but then again I guess this is just another hook up app. There really seems to be no true real answer for those of us looking to find committed relationships and not hook up with people. It really should not be allowed for people to be on here with no written profile - all they do is have their name, age, and a photo. You shouldn’t be allowed to be on the app if you’re not going to make a profile and at least put some effort into it. There’s very little barrier to entry on this app so it’s very easy for people to join and be a part of it without having to fill out anything. Hence tons of people you will waste time swiping through and never really finding what you’re looking for, most likely. If you’re looking for Friday night versus forever, then this app is for you.
App suddenly bugged out
by JoanOfSparks on 2018/12/04 01:18
I was having some issues with the Bumble app loading today so I did a quick “restart” by deleting the app and then re-downloading it. Just deleted the app, NOT my profile. Tried to log back in. At first I didn’t remember my password so I used the text option for recovery. Tried 3 times and none of the numbers I was texted work. Tried the phone call recovery. Same result. When I thought I recalled my password, The app took my # and PW but has completely blank pages that won’t load. I can’t tell if my profile has been deleted or if just nothing will load (not the profile, not other profiles, not even settings!). This bug came out of nowhere and is immensely frustrating. Not happy that the password recovery protocols are not working at all. Update: this did clear up after a few hours. No idea what the issue was. Now that the app is functional again, some stars returned. But seems a concerning bug.
Great Concept...But...
by Jewelsandjemsbyjen on 2018/07/09 22:44
So I really liked the concept of being able to message someone if there was a match and not having to receive tons of unsolicited and sleazy messages from random “men”. I’ve had the app for a couple months now and figured I just wasn’t matching with anyone because I have received absolutely no notifications whatsoever. Even in the app there is no notification marker on the chat bubble icon. Yesterday I happened to make a match. I sent a message to my match to get a conversation started. A couple hours later I checked the app again and tapped on the chat bubble icon. It had no record of a message sent to my match from earlier AND was showing two matches that I had missed out on because 24 hours had passed. Then, Bumble wants a ridiculous amount of money to rematch. I think this is completely wrong and unfair to want to charge for a rematch when there was never even any notification of the matches in the first place. I’m ok with the 24 hour window, but only if notifications would actually be sent. But at this point I am extremely disappointed with this app.
Meh

Lately the same people keep popping up multiple times when I’ve already swiped left on them. At first I believed Bumble’s explanation that they had a new account. Apparently I have two accounts and can’t log in to it to shut it down. But in the past month it’s happening very frequently. I often have guys disappear after I’ve matched with them but before I can message. A handful and you think ok they changed their mind or just swiped on all the women for an ego boost. But when it happens a dozen+ times in a week, it makes you go hmmm. Honestly it’s like there are a ton of glitches and they just don’t want to admit it. The new feature where Boost members see all people who’ve swiped them, even if they are 3000 miles away, makes paying for that service a waste of money. I’ve contacted Bumble help 4x and keep getting a canned response that doesn’t quite address my questions. I’m done asking them to have a thinking human respond. Loved the woman empowerment aspect but I’ve had men say terrible things then rush to block me before I could report them. Fail

Compare to tinder, this is a lot more better in my opinion. There are legit guys here & I have more matches compare to tinder. It also has a face detector to let you know you’re same person in the picture lol. The only issue I have in distance range in the filter. The app follows your location & that’s the problem. In my situation: I filter my distance to be 20 miles or less. Let say a person lives way more than that. Once that person starting moving (mostly driving to working, hanging out etc.) they have to drive to a certain distance, maybe near you. You will get people that don’t live in that area, will be part of your filter. I have a few matches that I thought they’re a good distance range turns out to be way farther than what I can travel. (I don’t like to drive very far). As a suggestion: maybe just type what city/town you live (Belair, Towson, Annapolis) & don’t have to put the location on.
Just one thought...

I love this app. I love how it is set up to be so friendly and I appreciate the app makers so much for their intentions. I just have one minor criticism. I understand where you’re coming from with the “only women can make the first move” rule. And I’m sure a lot of people love that idea. But for me personally, it’s a problem. Because of certain anxieties, I have a problem with being the first one to send a message. I like to know that there are guys out there who want to take the time to reach out to me. If the dude gets to be too much, all I have to do is block him. I just think that the app would be a much better experience if everyone got the opportunity to message first, no matter the gender. If you’re worried about guys being jerks to women, just make it easier to block people. That is all, over all I do really love this app and will continue to use it.
Becoming impossible to use

Last several times I've left town my bumble crashes and all of my new local mates disappear. I guess I have to start pressing the match button immediately so I don't lose contact. Very disappointing as I was wait until I have time to communicate like most others. I am paying to have my matches shown and other people are paying to be shown. Either fix it or give people refunds. I'm cancelling my pay service if the app is not repaired in the next few days. This has been going on at least 2 weeks. Honorable companies would already be giving credit. *on a side note I’ve discovered that you may get hundreds of likes but you’re lucky if one in 5 responds. I think a lot of men on this app just use it to look at people or like them and then don’t follow up. It’s frustrating to send so many messages without a response. A good idea would be to have a section where people decide if the want a long term/short term/just dating relationship. Also I’m getting contacted by swingers which is repulsive, this app is starting to turn into tinder too.
Very disappointed

This use to be my favorite dating app, but I had a malfunction with my app. It hasn’t been the first time, but I never complained. I’ve had it for a few years now. I have paid for bumble boost and consider myself a good customer. Well I emailed the company about my app not working. I had deleted the app itself a few times praying that my conversations were saved. I still had no luck . The company asked for my information to my account. I just got an email back saying that they have decided to permanently delete my profile because of complaints and being mean to others? First off, do better research because You have the wrong person. Also, I’ve talked to some strange people and I’m pretty confident they would violate many more guidelines than myself. I think I’m just more disappointed because they have the wrong impression of me and I’ve been nothing but a loyal customer. So to get permanently deleted makes no sense especially when I’ve been spending my own money. So now I’ve lost good conversations I had with some cool people due to false accusations.
