The way we meet people and create relationships, friendships and contacts has been changing over the years. Thanks to social media, we are more connected than ever, making meeting people either very difficult or very easy, depending on the point of view from where we stand. This is where Bumble comes in, a dating app that goes beyond the typical online platform to meet the potential love of your life.

Bumble: Use this App for Dating, Friendships and Networking

Bumble, founded by Whitney Wolfe Hard in 2014, may seem at first glance like a standard dating app, but in reality, it has many more features that set it apart from the rest. Here, not only will you be able to meet your next date by swiping according to your interests, but you will also be able to create new friendships, either online or with someone you meet who is near your location. In addition, you will be able to create professional connections, enabling you to share experiences and learn in the field in which you develop or want to explore.

How does Bumble Work and How can you meet someone?

The mechanics of Bumble are simple and it is designed from a feminine approach, being women who take the first step and take the initiative when it comes to heterosexual relationships. Regarding same-gender relationships or non-binary connections, either person has the possibility to start the conversation. This makes the app a safe and inclusive environment, encouraging everyone to feel comfortable using it.

Bumble’s features:

Let's explore further how the app works when using it for the first time:

Create your profile: you can create your profile as you like, adding photos, a short biography and your interests and preferences, making it as reflective of who you are as possible and showing what you are looking for. 

Browse profiles: when your account is complete, you can start your search for users, which will be based on your set preferences. For example, how far away the person is from you or their gender.

Swipe to make a match: as soon as you find a person you are interested in, you can swipe right to indicate to the app that you are interested. If you swipe left, you can move on to the next person, indicating that the latter was not to your liking. When a person you swiped right also swipes right on your profile, a match is formed!

Verified profiles: a key point within Bumble is that you can verify profiles through photos. This verification process helps to ensure the authenticity of the profiles, providing security to users.

Women take the first step: as mentioned above, one of the distinctive features of this application is that women have the power to initiate the conversation. When a match is formed, they have 24 hours to send a message. Otherwise, the connection disappears and the match is lost.

How to create a meaningful connection

Once the conversation has started, users have the ability to use the app’s features such as emojis and icebreaker questions, as Bumble encourages meaningful conversations that can be interesting to both people.

If the conversation flows over time and both people are interested, they can move on to exchanging their contact information to stay connected outside of the app and strengthen their relationship.

Is it convenient to use this app to meet new people?

The use of Bumble can be useful for those who value control when initiating a date, as well as the security and authenticity of the profiles they meet. However, it is important to note that we must have realistic expectations, and be willing to put in our time and energy to make the process of meeting someone meaningful, and not simply "discard" people from a prejudiced point of view, without even having deepened any topic of conversation.
