Let's get real, no one likes bugs. Don't worry, we've fixed them.


Over 30 million people have signed up for Bumble to start building valuable relationships, finding friends, and making empowered connections.

Creating new connections has never been easier. Bumble is working to lift the stigma of online dating by employing unprecedented standards for respectful behavior. Because of this relentless dedication, millions of people are using Bumble to build valuable relationships every single day.


Bumble is at the forefront of matchmaking technology by providing an app that allows users to foster more than just romantic connections. The industry-leading app empowers users to swipe through potential connections across three different modes:

Bumble: On Bumble, women make the first move. We’ve changed the archaic rules of the dating game so that you can form meaningful relationships in a respectful way.
Bumble BFF: Life is better with friends. Whether you’re new to a city or looking to expand your circle, Bumble BFF is the easiest way to make new friends.
Bumble Bizz: Now we’re in business. Use Bumble Bizz to network, find mentors, and create new career opportunities.

Bumble is the first app of its kind to bring dating, friend-finding, and career-building into a single social networking platform.


At Bumble, women make the first move. In heterosexual matches, the woman has 24 hours to make the first move and the man has 24 hours to respond. In same-sex matches, either person has 24 hours to make the first move, while the other individual has 24 hours to respond, or else, the connection expires. By prompting our users to be bold and make the first move we’ve seen over 3 billion messages sent to date.


“Bumble exists to empower women...” (Fast Company)
“Bumble is just an app: but it’s changing the discussion.” (Wired)
“Bumble offers an alternative that prioritises meaningful connections, with women calling the shots:” (UK Sunday Times)
“Bumble rejects hate speech to make users feel safe on its dating app” (Texas Standard)
“What makes Bumble different from other dating apps...is its focus on giving women all the power. ” (Business Insider)

Worst customer service
Vivitho🙈 on 7/20/2018
If you forget to cancel that subscription, they don’t even care. They stop answering emails and you will have to report fraud to your bank. Don’t even waste your time. The “features” are trash and the app itself is a waste of time. It’s tinder with timers. Trash.
Taking back likes on rewind.
obik88 on 7/20/2018
I really hate that y’all don’t let take my likes back because it would be “rude” what’s it’s even more “rude” is that when the person I didn't want to like matches with me and tries message me, and I unmatch her without saying anything...how do you think she feels then?
Feel Unsafe
JCsAunty on 7/20/2018
There’s an individual on here who does work in my neighborhood and has come onto me in a way that made me highly uncomfortable. He leers at me every time he’s around. I have blocked him on bumble only to see he has popped up since I blocked him about 7 more times!!!!!!! In addition to this, in June I sent a Twitter DM to inquire about the free boost trial. They told me they were having issues with boost and they would manually apply it to my account. I had about 1,000 profiles to scroll through and I had gotten through about 25 and without changing any preferences, while I was in the middle of looking at the bumble Match Queue, my ENTIRE queue disappeared! There were a few accounts I saved to look at better later and hundreds I hadn’t even seen that disappeared in a flash. I wrote them on Twitter and the bumble rep was less than helpful and it got to the point where they were just rude. Later I told them I wanted the boost removed from my account completely but was told they cannot do that. Since the time Boost was manually applied by them it rendered that whole match queue area useless. The trial has expired; it never worked anyway, but now even the blurred out profiles are gone. I’ll have guys who “super like” me that don’t show up in the queue as blurred out profiles. Bumble used to be a good app. The boost thing was just an annoyance but now that I feel unsafe with the block feature not working, I had to write a review and disable my account.
Zero Stars.
Pancakesy on 7/20/2018
I casually used Bumble Date for a few weeks. All of a sudden I could no longer log in. When I asked about it, Bumble told me they were permanently blocking my profile for being in violation of their guidelines, to which they provided a link. I closely perused said guidelines and found myself to be FAR from violating ANY of them. Most were about photograph content, and I wasn’t so much as wearing short pants in any of the images I had uploaded. I inquired of Bumble which guidelines I had violated, and their response was that they did not discuss individual cases for purposes of privacy. What? So you’ll just block my account suddenly, permanently, and irrevocably, and not even hint as to why? For an app that claims to be open-minded and forward-thinking, that is a dangerously unreceptive practice. Bumble’s first E-Mail said (and I quote) “our decision about your profile cannot be changed and no exceptions will be made.” Their second said “all complaints are investigated to their fullest extent, and all decisions are final.” This is pretty toxic policy if an atmosphere of good feeling is what Bumble is trying to foster. I certainly didn’t even use the app or interact directly with enough people thereupon to offend anyone, so I am truly flummoxed about why Bumble booted me. I obviously cannot recommend an app (or any institution) that enacts arbitrary bans and censorship without warning, discussion, or explanation.
No Matches

I must be pug fugly
Limited number of users, so Bumble recycled rejected profiles
Jaidido4 on 7/20/2018
Having exhausted the very limited number of profiles that meet my criteria, Bumble brought back all of the profiles I had just rejected. Not cool at all. Waste of my time!!
boomer babe! on 7/20/2018
I've obviously fumbled at bumble!it seems that nobody wants to meet me from this site....I could've spent my money more wisely
Started with a coffee date
kerrydpsjc on 7/20/2018
Hi! 2 years ago today July 20th I went on a coffee date in San Clemente. Easy great conversation ( date was one hour long ) Next week we went on another date and then another a week later. We really enjoy each others company, we laughed allot ( laughing is my love language ) At week 7 and many dates in between I was diagnose with stage three breast cancer that spread into my Lymph nodes. We sat down that night and talked, I expected to tell me that he couldn’t go through this and to be honest I totally understand. However that’s not what happened, he told me he really liked me, tell me nothing about cancer ( neither did I ) He told me he really liked me a lot and wanted to see if this would go anywhere. 6 rounds of chemo, surgery , 33 rounds of radiation. And we are still together and still laughing! October 3rd 2018 we are going to Bermuda with 8 friends and getting married Thank you to my niece for putting me on Bumble Kerry and Randy
Nervous they are still using my profile
Lyft=ThievesandLiars on 7/20/2018
After deleting my account I’ve read multiple stories that ones account may be used as bait or seem active to falsely boost numbers in your area. Hoping that’s not the case, hopefully my friends or co-workers don’t send me any screen shots of my “deleted” profile like I keep reading about.
June1787!! on 7/20/2018
I got a free trial of bumble but found it to be pointless and deleted the phone from my app. Woke up to realize I didn’t actually delete my account my bad- I’ve now paid for a $50 subscription for a company that I won’t ever use- and no refund are allowed. What a joke.
nick_benes on 7/20/2018
This app is bangin’. It’s my first choice amongst the other apps for hookups. The bar is expensive. This app is so worth downloading. It’s literally the best. You’ll love it. Swipe like you wiping the tears away from your lonely drunkenness and download now!
Mostly fake profiles
Qtn55az on 7/20/2018
I tried it for a week... 80% fake profiles (no description on the profile and mostly model type photos). I got NO responses until I decided to cancel on day 6 of a 7 day membership. Then I got here responses! Lol but I messaged them back and no reply from them. Also they just said hi. So I did a second week and NO replies. Towards the end I swiped right on EVERYONE to see if I could get a response and got nothing, lol. Fake Fake Fake profiles!!! Save your money!!
Charged without using TouchID
Ghostedjv on 7/20/2018
Absolutely at a loss at how Bumble authorized my card while my finger was not on TouchID. I was hitting the “cancel” button and next thing I see is “Congrats” and the Amex receipt of $85.00....what the hell?
Bots don’t talk
ΣΠΥΡΙΔΟΝ on 7/20/2018
I was promised that the bots on this app are interactive. Mine seem to not be talking. I would give it 5 stars if they could fix the bots that don’t communicate. Tnks!!!
No Basic Profile Info, Pictures Repeat
JJFlashX on 7/20/2018
Terrible dating App. Not a single bit of required Profile Info. You end up asking Matches basic questions which Matches can’t be bothered with. When you run out of Pictures to swipe, they repeat. And constantly tells you that you have dozens of Matches to push the paid option and pings to tell you to keep swiping because “someone” swiped you. I’m sure that Bots are responding with “Hi” to keep you coming back. Oh..and tracks your Facebook usage. No different than a slot machine in Vegas. Complete Waste of time.
Tech issues made 800+ matches disappear
coco bellicose on 7/20/2018
Paid for a month subscription because it said over 50 people liked me...once I got in the app there were over 800 likes to go through but they only displayed ten at a time. I was slowly going through them when they all disappeared but one. Now it says there is nobody left to look at, as if Its possible to swipe through every man in Phx in 30 minutes. They say no refunds so just use the free version
Great app that delivers
cbryant23 on 7/19/2018
Much better than tinder or happn matched a few people who are really chill
Poor Customer Service
CodyH4048 on 7/19/2018
Accidentally signed up for a trial, which they make incredibly quick and easy to do, and did not cancel and then removed app. On the day of the charge I saw they had removed $49.99 from my account. I messaged them to tell them of the issue and they refused to work with me or refund/cancel my subscription despite having messaged immediately. yes not removing the subscription was my fault, but the company failed to understand the situation. They make it incredibly easy to sign up for the trial and profit off those who fail to unsubscribe instead of making a product which people actually want to pay to use. SAD!
Darius2018night on 7/19/2018
It might not be fair to give stars to a dating app, because it might be successful in some area but not somewhere else. However, I think many of profiles are already found their matches or given up of swiping. The app constantly wants you to pay when there is no more people in 60 miles. Come on! Just disappointed and will delete the app soon. Don’t waste your time and just go to a bar, at least you’re not alone there or can see a few alive people.
Good in theory
Emkat53 on 7/19/2018
I like the idea behind this app but there’s just not much diversity. 90% white guys that are either personal trainers or financial analysts. I speculate that some of these profiles are fake placeholders. Height should be a required field, it’d save a lot of time!
Bumble doesn’t care.
HawaiianKong on 7/19/2018
Complain all you want about inactive profiles, girls just looking for IG followers, or any other legit issue — they’ll just direct you to message them on facebook and then give you a canned response that doesn’t help you. I have gotten dates though, so I guess I’m doing better than the 1-star reviewers.
beep boop beep 777 on 7/19/2018
Most of the women on here have no idea that they have to initiate the conversation... it says it right in their profile... “ if you have any questions just hit me up” so definitely a fail on bumbles part. Great job guys, thanks for the waste of money 👍🏻
montel585 on 7/19/2018
I don’t understand how there’s no super like. Some improvements need to be made. We’re trying to connect with people. Make that easier on us
Nobody Responds
Devinocd on 7/19/2018
Ive had about 12 matches on here in a row and every time it is the same story. The 24 hour period goes by with no response and the match is gone. Havent even had a conversation with anyone. I dont get it. Either 24 hours isnt long enough for them to respond, they are swiping right on every profile then select from their matches who to talk to, they randomly change their mind and dont want to send me a message after they swipe right, or they are accidently swiping right on me (but 12 times in a row seems unlikely). Im really confused...
Don’t use this app! They scam you for your money
review of tinder i mean bumble on 7/19/2018
I was charged for a 3 month membership that I never signed up for. It happened when I agreed to a two week trial. I am hoping I get my money back! I’ve sent an email to support but have yet to hear anything. I wouldn’t pay for the Bumble Boost primarily because I’m always “out of people” unless I change my radius to 50 plus miles away. I live in a relatively large urban area and I rarely-never match with anyone I’m interested in. That doesn’t make me feel like I’m taking the lead... 4 emails sent to customer support and no response regarding the charge for 3 months that I did not authorize! Crappy service.
Not getting monies worth and no matches
russiablonde on 7/19/2018
Never matches me with the people I want... even when I pay and use the super swipe
Great dating app
jamesdcranmer on 7/19/2018
Dru$$o on 7/19/2018
No one response
Please put ethnicity
koryb29 on 7/19/2018
I can’t stand that you can’t put you’re ethnicity. Please fix that.
NancyJMalik on 7/19/2018
In theory this could be a really great idea. It empowers women to make the first move. However they are not going in blindly because the man has already swiped right and you know that he is interested. Unfortunately it seems that the vast majority of people that are on here have not paid. Therefore they cannot see that you also like them and they cannot read your email or respond. Seems kind of silly. People have nothing to do but swipe their finger left and right all day? Obviously the people on here are not serious just like everywhere.
Angelocookie on 7/19/2018
Much better than tinder I will say for sure 👌
Annoyed012 on 7/19/2018
Going on three weeks now where it still won’t show me my matches (perpetually have 3) and the app isn’t sending notifications of messages even though notifications are on.
No ones on here?
EA3killa on 7/19/2018
You should remove the ppl who haven’t been on in weeks from the swiping part to increase matches
I think
Deavonte jirece Tay morris on 7/19/2018
It could be better more interracial people better advertisement and not the 24 hour chat thing and then also make sure you have the people who r near us more then the ones who r not near us make it more fun to where everyone will start downloading it
rob(redstar) on 7/18/2018
Seems cool
I can’t see any of my matches
Marquessa11111 on 7/18/2018
I have 22 matches for BFF and I have to pay to see them or talk to them? Is this a joke?
Jules McPrayer on 7/18/2018
So far, a waste of time for the $ spend. I need filters for race and education level.
Yet another waste of time.
Goldboy25 on 7/18/2018
So I’ve on/off used this app for about a year and a half. I’ve never once had conversation with someone that lasted long enough to exchange numbers or even go on a date. Hell, as a man on this it’s rare as hell to even get a match unless you truly lower your standards and just swipe right on every profile. The ‘Bumble Boost’ is a scam and I sure wish I could get my money back. It does absolutely nothing to help you get matches or even help you stand out. The only feature it does is allow you to see who swiped right on your profile. I recently had moved to a whole new state and decided to purchase a three month subscription, in hopes to meet local people or maybe go on dates. I actively used it every day/every other day in hopes that the more I use it, the better chances of getting a match or something... I swiped right on at least well over a hundred profiles in those three months... I got four matches. Two of which were accidental right swipes, the other two never even messaged me. Four matches in three months, I used the app regularly and I truly don’t have any type of high standards and I’m not an ugly dude. A week after my subscription to Bumble Boost ends, all the sudden now I have people right swiping me in my ‘queue’ or whatever it is that I can’t see unless I buy Boost, smh. The fact that Boost doesn’t even give you free BumbleCoins daily, something even like 2 free BumbleCoins a day or something would be nice. I have literally purchased EXTRA BumbleCoins on top of my subscription and never got matches. So now I’ve probably spent a little closer to $100 on an app that hasn’t even produced one date in over a year. Waste of time.
yankeesfanlaura on 7/18/2018
The same dudes here are the same dudes on tinder.
It isn’t 17+
lonely teen :( on 7/18/2018
It’s 18+. Big disappointment
Haven’t had a match
Majorpain100 on 7/18/2018
I don’t think this app is working correctly. I haven’t had one match. When I click to see if there is a match it shows someone the disappears real quick.
Good App
jz125ds on 7/18/2018
Dont contact bumble, they wont reply
Milleratti on 7/18/2018
My account frozen, jammed and was stuck. It wanted me to upload a profile picture, so I did. It would never get out of that setting and wouldnt let me move forward with the process. I uploaded several times. Emailed technical because you cant call them, they dont provide a phone number. Days went by. Emailed 3 times with no response. Not very pleasant experience when it is time sensitive on match ups. Deleted the app and moving on to another. No help from them!
In active or non existent users
CaptRe on 7/18/2018
The app shows in-active users or users who no longer or never existed. I am friends with several of the alleged users that bumble claimed, and these people have been inactive for years or never were active. I smell something fishy. I do like the way the app works but the validity of users is in question!!!
Why ??
Omega1don on 7/18/2018
Nobody has text me yet 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️
Notification setting doesn’t work
amandys_101 on 7/17/2018
The app was great. Only issue I had was that I would never get notified when I had a new message even though my notification was on.
ecc5036 on 7/17/2018
This app is more stressful than anything. I’m a super busy person and 24 hours to message/respond is just not enough time. 48 would be wonderful. I lose so many matches because of the time constraints and my schedule balancing two jobs.
Horrible Customer Service
SummerLiving81 on 7/17/2018
Worst customer service ever. Their app charged my card without authorization and refuse to refund my money. Will never use this service again. There are plenty of other dating apps out there that do the same thing! Don’t use if you want to be ripped off!
Be careful ladies
MarieX09 on 7/17/2018
There is a 29 year old male(Connor)on this site who claims to be a medical resident from Ft. Worth,TX. He says he is looking for a friend with benefits but he only wants benefits. He will manipulate you and then lure you to a park for his own pleasure. He then un-matches you right after. Then on to his next victim.
Awesome! Mind blowingly easy! Love it
