Bumble Review — Is Bumble Also Good For GUYS?
Maybe you’re not sure about Bumble? Or you want to try something a little more mainstream? Are you a female who doesn’t want the burden of having to always make the first move? Are you a man who wants to be able to reach out to the women you’re interested in?
If you are a single woman, we have no doubt you’ve heard of bumble. It is the platform that is focused on shifting the antiquated dynamics of dating and handing the power of choice back to women. The main way this is done is by changing the communication rules so that the woman must like a profile before the profile owner can message them and also be the one to initiate (and unlock) the conversation).
The quality of singles at Bumble are pretty great when compared to similar, swiping-style apps. This is partially because men who want to send unsolicited messages tend to steer clear of the app, but also because there seems to be a healthy level of safety moderation to prevent scammers from joining.
Bumble follows a swipe-style matchmaking process. Users swipe to indicate interest in other members. When there is a mutual match, both members are notified! This is where things get different, though. Instead of immediately opening up a conversation, Bumble gives the woman 24 hours to initiate a conversation. If she doesn’t send anything in that time frame, the match goes away and no one can send a message unless they match again. The men are NOT able to initiate the conversation.
The Bumble app was designed with women in mind. So, for the most part, yes, the Bumble dating app is good for women. The one caveat, though, is that if you’re a woman who doesn’t want the onus of always having to be the one to make the first move and send the first message, it might not be a great fit. It ultimately depends on your preferences.
