What is Bumble?

Why Bumble was created

Bumble is a platform for connection -- not just for those looking for their honey on Date mode, but those seeking new friendships on Bumble BFF, or looking for a new business mentor on Bumble Bizz too. Bumble is a great way to find the people in your area that may just bring the energy you’re looking for!

Bumble was designed to challenge outdated heterosexual dating norms. We empower women to make the first move by giving them the ability to control the conversation. 

Beyond women making the first move, Bumble is a platform to empower all users to create safe and healthy connections. We encourage integrity, kindness, equality, confidence, and respect during all stages of any relationship — whether online or offline. 

How it works

 In heterosexual matches on Bumble, women are required to make the first move. Once a match is established, the woman will have 24 hours to make the first move, or the connection expires.

In same-gender matches, either person has the power to make the first move. Then, the other person has 24 hours to respond, or the connection expires.

We have some fun features which allow you to extend time on a match you are really interested in or rematch with an expired connection. Check them out!
