Bumble is currently the second most popular dating app. Unlike Tinder which is geared towards hookups, Bumble is more focused on building relationships.
Bumble has two additional modes, BFF and Bizz, but we will not be going over them in this article.
HOW IT WORKS
Users build out a profile by adding pictures, verifying their identity, filling out a bio, and answering a few questions.
Once this is done, they can swipe right or left on profiles they are shown.
If both users end up swiping right, there is a match.
Once the match happens, the conversation is started in the messaging tab. The girl has 24 hours to initiate the conversation. If she doesnt message him, the match expires.
Bumble offers a few upgrades for users that want to pay. You have spotlight, superswipe, and boost.
Your profile goes to the top of the deck for all the active users in an area.
Just like a superlike, this gets you to the top of the deck and lets the girl know what you’ve superswiped them
This is a paid option where you can extend matches, restore expired matches, and see who liked you in the beeline.
The closest alternatives to Bumble are Tinder & Okcupid. Both have their pros and cons. If you are serious about online dating, I highly recommend that you download all 3 apps.
