HOW DOES BUMBLE WORK FOR GUYS?
Understanding how Bumble works for men is a bit different to other dating sites. On Bumble, only girls can message first as they have ‘First Move’ privileges. This means that when you match, you have to wait for them to message you. So, play it cool.
They then have 24 hours to start a conversation with you, or the match expires forever (unless they’ve paid for the ‘boost membership’, in which case they can extend that 24-hour ‘match timer’ for as long as they like).
Once they do message you (they’ll totally message you), you just need to message her back, and the match is locked in. No more timers – just the time to work your magic.
BUMBLE: HOW IT WORKS FOR NORMAL VS. 'BOOST' MEMBERS
If you’re hitting the dating scene hard, you might want to spend some money to change how Bumble works for you. It’s a paid, monthly subscription like Netflix, and you might not need it – but the option to boost your game is always fun. This advice will sort you out anyway – but we may as well let you know about the differences:
- You can see who’s already interested in you, and who has potentially already swiped on your profile.
- You can rematch with someone if your match with them expires.
- You can extend the ‘match timer’ so that you can wait as long as you want to find that perfect reaction gif or one-liner.
- You get unlimited filters so you can be as picky as you want.
And that’s it. You now know your way around this app like the back of your hand. Which is a good thing because the front of your hand is gonna be busy swiping. And remember, it’s not about the number of people you match with, it’s about matching the right one!
