Bumble - Meet New People



    Bumble - Meet New People's review

    Published: 2015-08-18, by .

    Tinder alternative hookup app that lets women make the first move

    • Great design
    • Shifts balance of power
    • Open to various sexualities
    • Familiar card-swiping UI
    • Pool is small outside of major US cities

    "Hellooooo there hot stuff"


    Bumble is a Tinder alternative with a focus on putting the power back in the hands of the ladies. Meet and date new people near you using the now-familiar swipe left for no, right for yes mechanism - if it's a mutual match, then you'll both be notified and connected to start chatting. The big difference: only women can make the first move (and you're connected to Facebook to make sure you're actually female). It lets ladies set the tone for the conversation, which can potentially make a big difference in what happens next.


    Bumble is super well designed with a clean, clear interface. The swiping mechanism is a classic by now. All your conversations are neatly organized for you to interact with potential hotties near you. Women seeking women for friends or otherwise are also more than welcome. You can filter by age, gender, and distance.


    Like usual with these dating apps, there's just not too big of a pool here yet. If you're in a major US city, you may have better luck than I did here in Barcelona.

    Over 30 million people have signed up for Bumble to start building valuable relationships, finding friends, and making empowered connections.

    Creating new connections has never been easier. Bumble is working to lift the stigma of online dating by employing unprecedented standards for respectful behavior. Because of this relentless dedication, millions of people are using Bumble to build valuable relationships every single day.


    Bumble is at the forefront of matchmaking technology by providing an app that allows users to foster more than just romantic connections. The industry-leading app empowers users to swipe through potential connections across three different modes:

    Bumble: On Bumble, women make the first move. We’ve changed the archaic rules of the dating game so that you can form meaningful relationships in a respectful way.
    Bumble BFF: Life is better with friends. Whether you’re new to a city or looking to expand your circle, Bumble BFF is the easiest way to make new friends.
    Bumble Bizz: Now we’re in business. Use Bumble Bizz to network, find mentors, and create new career opportunities.

    Bumble is the first app of its kind to bring dating, friend-finding, and career-building into a single social networking platform.


    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.
