What is Bumble?
Bumble is a mobile dating app.
It’s a lot like Tinder — with the swiping left or right to say if you’re interested in someone — with one major twist: for heterosexual daters, only women can send a first message.
(For more differences, see: Bumble vs. Tinder.)
Is Bumble for gay guys and girls? Or just straight people?
The Bumble app works for both gay and straight people.
The difference is in who messages first. Whereas straight men can’t message straight women first, gay men can message each other freely.
In other words, anyone can write first when contacting someone of the same sex.
Are there limitations on who can message who for Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz?
No. Anyone can write first on Bumble BFF (the part of the app for people seeking same-sex friendship) or Bumble Bizz (the professional/business networking section).
How to “win” at dating on Bumble 🐝🍯
The secret is this: it’s not really about you. It’s about your pictures.
An average-looking guy with really flattering pictures can match with anyone he wants, whereas a super-hot guy with bad pics will find himself rejected over and over. It’s really that simple.
Before you waste potential matches, be sure to run your pics through Photofeeler to know how they’re coming across. (Do you look attractive, smart, trustworthy, fun, confident, etc.?)
