What Is Bumble? 5 Things to Know About the Dating App 2023

Updated: February 6, 2023

Like Tinder, the app is based on users swiping right (for yes) or left (for no) as they see profiles and potential matches in their area, but with one key difference: After two heterosexual people match on Bumble, the woman has to message the man first.

1. Women control the conversation.

Once a match is made it’s up to the female to take the lead and make the first move by sending a message—so why the extra rule? Bumble created this feature hoping to inspired women to make the first move, to give them more power on the app, and to solve the problem many dating apps have where women on the app just get bombarded with messages from men.

2. It’s free but has paid features that are extra.

No need to worry, you can look for your future partner free of charge. There is no sign up fee and you only have to worry about paying for features if you want to. If you do decide that paying for extras is the route for you, the app offers things like Bumble Boost, which unlocks the ability to swipe through profiles that have already liked you.

3. It’s not just for heterosexual couples.

Though the app was originally created to break through the traditional heteronormative dating rules, the app no longer requires you to define your sexuality—you simply click that you’re interested in men, women, or both and the app will provide you with profiles accordingly.

4. They have extra verification features.

This feature is a great way to weed out internet bots, by verifying yourself. You take a picture of yourself doing a certain motion, and Bumble adds a check mark to your profile which shows others that you’re the real deal.

5. They also have Bumble BFF/Bumble Bizz.

As a company, Bumble doesn’t want to just focus on dating, so if you aren’t looking to date, but still want to put yourself out there, you can switch into BFF mode. Switching to BFF mode provides you with people of the same sex that Bumble thinks you may want to be friends with.
