Our Bumble Review

Bumble is one of the most recent dating sites around. But what it does not have in terms of longevity, it makes up for in terms of professionalism. The founder of the site is a former employee of Tinder and as a result the site is not short of expertise in terms of management. This Bumble review will uncover some of the major features of the website. 

The Concept Of Girl Power

Since the founder of Bumble was a former employee of Tinder, the outlook and feel of the site seem to appear similar to what obtains on Tinder. There is a revolutionary aspect to Bumble though and that is the fact that women wield control of the site. The owner of the site (Whitney Wolfe) is a woman and has ensured she empowers women to be in control on the site. Whenever matches are made, the female member has to contact the male member first after which the male will decide if he is interested or not. This is a cool feature though. This is certainly a bold move as women are used to being chased; well I don’t think the men will complain anyway when being asked out on a date by a female.

Sign Up Process And Features

As expected, the signup process is not cumbersome. It takes a couple of minutes to have your account set up on the platform. A new member can signup with his/her phone number or Facebook account. If you register with your Facebook account then you are spared from the rigors of filling up the details in your profile as your Facebook details can be imported. After you account has been set up, you can start getting matches almost immediately.

It is expected that a dating website should have a search option where you can make searches about potential interests, but this is not the case with Bumble. Users get to see matches based on their preferences as predetermined by them. Hence as long as there are profiles meeting up with the preferences of the member they will continue to receive matches.  The details filled out by users such as age range, sexual preferences and location will determine the number of matches that will come up. Sending messages to profiles that catches your attention is free and there is even a chat room incorporated into the website. Fake profiles once identified can be reported to the administrators. 

Free And Premium Services On Bumble

Even without paying up for a subscription yet, you can still enjoy some services offered on the site. For instance, as a free user, you can have access to profile creation, match suggestions as well as the chat and messaging service. However, you must subscribe to enjoy some of the specialized services such as; extending connections for 24 hours, superswipe, access to people who already swiped right on a profile and rematch with expired connections.

Conclusion - Is Bumble Worth Joining?

The site empowers women by helping them to avoid unwanted attention from male users they may not be interested in. Since women are the ones making the decisions, you can tell they will be a bit vain in their choice (not like the men will be any better though). Hence if you are good looking, you may stand a good chance of matches than an average looking guy. However, this is not to say the site is not worth a look regardless of your looks. 

Are There Any Bumble Alternatives?

If you are looking for a Bumble Alternative you should always check out Tinder and Yamvoo. However, traditional dating sites like Mingle2day and Match also still work quite good. Bumble is the wrong kind of dating site and app if you are just looking for no strings attached fun. In that case you should check out hookup websites like AdultFriendFinder.
