Bumble is an app to find a date or the ultimate love that is eating a lot of ground Tinder, and there are reasons for this. Although the popular application has many good things, this app has certain aspects that make it different and that is dazzling many people. Among them, one of the most outstanding is that it is not only to know love or casual relationships, although you will discover them all now.
We tell you what Bumble is, how it works and what makes it so different and so similar to Tinder so that you can choose which one is the most suitable for you. The two have many similarities, and that is that they will need your location to show you possible matches in your area. Once you confirm it, you can start meeting people. Just like on Tinder, having multiple photos will increase your chances of success, so upload as many as you can and choose good photos on your mobile.
Getting started on Bumble
If you have just installed it, it will ask you to upload some photos and indicate certain information to start meeting people for whatever you want. If you haven’t done it yet, you can do it in your mobile app store in no time.
Check everything well because there is data, such as your name or date of birth, that you will not be able to change later. Complete everything to start meeting people. One of the things that attracts the most attention at first is that it allows you to show more accurate data about your gender, in which you can put if you are female, male or non-binary and specify this information even more. You can choose whether or not to show your gender.
You will have options for choose the mode you want, between finding someone special, making new friends or looking for professional contacts. Be careful what you choose because your profile will only be shown to people who are in the same mode. You will also have to choose Who do you want to know, or indicate that you don’t care. On Tinder, on the other hand, all the nearby profiles that meet your age and gender requirements will appear. Decide what you want to find to make it easier for you to find it. If you answer the entire initial questionnaire honestly, it will be easier for you to meet people who fit what you are looking for. State your interests and get ready to meet new people.
One of the keys to Bumble is that messages must be more immediate and interest prevails over other things. That’s why, you only have 24 hours to make contact after the match with other people. When 24 hours pass without either party exchanging the message, the match expires. Thus, you will avoid wasting time with people who match you, but then do not answer or pass everything. And since women send the first message, except in contacts where there are only men, drooling or unwanted messages will be avoided to a greater extent
The way to interact is very simple, since they will appear pictures of people who fit with what you are looking for. That is, they are looking for the same thing as you and match your search criteria. If you make the gesture of lowering the screen, you will be able to see more information beyond the photo. Depending on which side you swipe, you will indicate that you like or dislike the person to match. Go passing photos and choosing people until you match. You can also send reactions and access premium options.
The best and worst of each app
If you have already tried both applications, you will easily discover their differences, but if not, we will tell you about the best and worst of each of them so that you can choose the one you like best. You can also try both.
