Having Trouble With Your Pick Up Lines?

“drop the best pick up lines you cant come up with”

Chances are, if you are reading this, you are contemplating on downloading Bumble or Tinder. Both apps are great tools for online dating and have their pros and cons. In this guide I will be shining a light upon the similarities and differences between them.

SIMILARITIES

Let’s take a look at the similarities between the two apps.

PICTURE BASED PROFILES

Still the major reason why someone swipes right or left, Tinder & Bumble use heavy picture based profiles. In fact many users don’t even look at the bios of individuals when they swipe right or left.

SPOTIFY SHOWCASE

While this doesn’t make a huge factor on someone’s swiping, both apps allow for users to showcase up to 10 of their favorite artists. Tinder in addition allows for users to be able to choose an anthem where as Bumble allows for a go to karaoke song.

INSTAGRAM SHOWCASE

Both Tinder and Bumble allow for users to connect their instagram accounts. This allows individuals to have even more pictures on their profile and help further show that they are not a catfish. 

CREATING AN ACCOUNT

With both platforms, users can create an account with either a phone number or Facebook account.

RIGHT VS. LEFT SWIPE

Both employ a system where users swipe right and left on profiles. If you are attracted to someone, swipe right if not, swipe left. Pretty straight forward

UNDO LAST LEFT SWIPE

Both have the options to undo an accidental left swipe. On Bumble, users shake their phones. On Tinder, you press a button. With Bumble, you have 3 opportunities every day. On Tinder, this is a paid featured.

SUPER LIKES & SWIPES

Tinder allows you to have one super like each day. Paid users can have up to 5. On Bumble, you have to purchase each Super Swipe.

BOOSTS

In both apps, new profiles tend to get a noob boost. This allows for users to get more initial matches and for the apps to collect data on a profile. Once a profile has been established for a while, users have the option to purchase a one off boost.

WORK & EDUCATION

Tinder and Bumble allow users to showcase where they went to school & where they currently work.

DISTANCE FILTERING

Both allow users to filter individual profiles based on the distance from a user. This can be anywhere from 1 to 99 miles.

BIO

The last similarity between the apps is the bio. This is the 2nd most important aspect of a profile. This allows you to add more information that isn’t showcased in a profile. It’s a great way to add your height, hobbies, and interests.

SEE WHO LIKES YOU

Both apps have additional paid features where you can see the users who have already swiped right on your profile. On Bumble this is boost while on Tinder this is Gold.

DIFFERENCES

While there is a lot of similarities between the apps, there are quite a lot of differences.

VIEWING A PROFILE

When viewing a profile on Tinder, users either tap left or right to see the next or previous pictures. On Bumble, users swipe up and down.

PROFILE PROMPTS

To showcase even more information, Bumble allows users to fill out profile prompts. These prompts include questions like:

My dream dinner guest is…..

Beach or mountains…..

If you could teleport to anywhere this weekend it would be….

This feature is currently not available on Tinder.

AMOUNT OF PROFILE PICTURES

Tinder currently allows users to have 9 pictures while Bumble limits users to 6.

VERIFICATION

Bumble has in place a verification system to stop catfishing. To do this, a user must take a picture with a certain hand gesture. Once this is sent in, the profile gets a checkmark that shows its been verified.

AMOUNT OF RIGHT SWIPES

Tinder currently limits users to 100 right swipes each day. On the other hand, Bumble has unlimited right swipes.

TOP PICKS

This is a Tinder exclusive feature. Tinder shows individuals a selection of top picks each day. These show users who closely align your swiping habits. Each user gets 1 free top pick per day, while paid users have the option to like more. 

MESSAGING

Tinder allows for the guy or girl to message first. On Bumble, only girls are allowed to start the conversation.

EXPIRING MATCHES

Unlike Tinder, on Bumble matches expire. This happens when either the girl doesn’t initiate the conversation within 24 hours of a match or when the guy doesn’t respond to the first message within 24 hours.

EXTENDING MATCHES

If you like someone and want to have an additional 24 hours, you can extend the match. Each user has 1 available to use daily. Paid users have unlimited extends.

REMATCH

If your match expires, you have the option to rematch

ADDITIONAL PROFILE INFORMATION

Bumble allows users to add more information to their profile such as height, exercise, and education level. The full list is below:

  • Height
  • Exercise
  • Education Level
  • Drinking
  • Smoking
  • Pets
  • Looking For
  • Kids
  • Star Sign
  • Politics
  • Religion

FILTERS

On Bumble, you can filter potential matches based on the profile information provided above. This is a great way to cut out individuals if they don’t fit into your type.

AMOUNT OF USERS

Tinder vastly outnumbers the amount of users Bumble has. While Bumble continues to slowly increase its market share, Tinder is currently king. Tinder has approximately double the amount of users as Tinder. 

DEMOGRAPHICS OF USERS

Bumble has a much higher percentage of girls on the platform(46%) compared to Tinder(38%). While they are still the minority, it’s much closer to 50-50.

CULTURE

There is currently a cultural belief that Tinder is more of a hookup app while Bumble is more of a relationship app. While this is mainly true, users can date or hookup on both apps.

PASSPORT

This paid Tinder exclusive feature, Passport allows users to swipe in other locations. This is perfect for someone who is going on vacation to get matches before they arrive. You can get matches and set up dates from another country or state.

FINAL THOUGHTS

If you are getting into online dating, I would recommend that you download both apps. Some users are exclusively on one app, so having a profile on both will lead to more opportunities. Don’t limit yourself to one platform.
