How Does Bumble Work? A Beginner’s Guide
3. Test your pics on Photofeeler to find your best
I’ll just say it: most straight men are horrible at picking photos of themselves. This is good news for you, however, because fixing this mistake will put you ahead of the competition.
Fixing your pictures can easily make the difference between getting 0 matches vs. more matches than you can handle.
So before you waste potential matches on Bumble, be sure to run yours through women your age on Photofeeler.
Photofeeler tells you exactly how you’re coming across in pics (do you look attractive, smart, trustworthy, fun, confident, etc.?) You can even get specific written feedback.
Go to Photofeeler.com now and give it a try!

Bumble is completely free to download. There are paid options we will address soon. I recommend you get a feel for the free version before you consider paying for any extras.
Once you download the app you will be prompted to connect either your Facebook account or your phone number.
Connecting your Facebook is quicker as it will auto-fill your name, age and some photos (which you can change).

Bumble isn’t strictly used for dating, with the introduction of Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz. These are in-app features used to find friends and network respectively.
There isn’t all that much difference when it comes to BFF, just that you’re looking for a friend instead! Swiping, matching and Bumble’s algorithm will work much the same, only now you are scrolling through people who have also opted to try and find a friend.
Bumble BFF might sound a little awkward to some, but according to some Bumble users I recently spoke to, it actually works in the ways of finding a buddy.
Bumble BFF works by entering the Bumble settings and selecting ‘choose mode’. Your mode will most likely still be set to ‘date’, but you can change to ‘bff’ or ‘bizz’.
Once you select ‘bff’ you can now switch off (or leave on) ‘date’ if you would prefer to not have your profile shown to others looking for a date.
Bumble Bizz works much the same as Bumble Date and Bumble BFF. The only difference is that you’re looking for a mentor or networking opportunity.
Like Bumble BFF, you can opt to just be shown to others looking for on Bumble Bizz, and be excluded from Bumble Date.
So if you’re someone who wants to network in your area, what do you have to lose?
