Bumble is unique in that it requires women to make the first move! The goal is shake up outdated gender norms which can only be a good thing. Like any good relationship, Bumble prioritises kindness and respect - they want to create a safe online community where users can build new relationships.

How Does Bumble Work?

Like with most dating apps, you connect with a potential match by 'liking' each other's profile by swiping right. Once a match is made, women have 24hrs to reply.


This is designed to encourage interactions between users. It effectively reduces the amount of time spent procrastinating. It also encourages you to go with your gut instincts. If you are happy that you matched with a certain someone, then the sooner you send a message the better!

Interestingly, Bumble also has a BFF feature, for making friends, which is an added bonus. Once you have found a partner, you can return to the app and increase your social circle.

Key Features

  • Women make the first move
  • The app rewards 'good' behaviour (ie. Not swiping right for each photo)
  • No limit to the amount of likes or matches
  • BFF feature for making friends


Is it Safe?

Like with anything online, you cannot guarantee that it is 100% safe. You can however take steps to insure that if you meet up with someone you take the necessary precautions.
  • It is recommended that you are careful with the amount of personal data that you share with a match (ie. Bank Account).
  • Meet in a public place
  • Consider downloading one of the personal safety apps mentioned here, to make sure friends and family are aware of where you are going and who your are meeting.

Other Systems

Bumble is also available on iOS here and a web version exists here.

This is how I met my boyfriend. A nicer alternative to some other dating apps out there that gives the ladies more control :)
