6 Ways to Get More Matches on Bumble

With over a billion women-led first moves made on our app, we here at HQ know a thing or two about what your profile needs to get more right swipes. If you feel like your match rate could use a lift, here are the top six things you can do to increase your match rate.

Verify your profile

Use Bumble’s photo verification tool to let potential matches know they’re swiping on the real deal. Click the blue check on anyone’s profile and follow the steps to get verified. 

Write a short and punchy bio

Having a bio is definitely better than not having one, but don’t make it too long. Our data shows that a quick, punchy bio is the way to go. Share your interests, what you’re looking for, or a fun fact about yourself! Give your potential matches a hint at your personality and save the details for your chat. 

Add Profile Badges

Utilize Bumble’s profile badges to show potential matches what you’re all about, leaving more room for you to play with the space in your bio. Do you have cats? Are you in grad school? Looking for something serious — or not sure yet? These are easy jumping off points your matches can break the ice with, and they’re available in all three modes when you edit your profile.

Link your education and professional history

Sharing where you work and where you went to school gives potential matches some insight into how you spend your days and lets them know where you’re from. They might have a connection to that school or a friend that works at your company, which will instantly give them something to get the conversational ball rolling.

Integrate your Spotify account

Similar to the bio and work and education history, our Spotify feature allows potential matches to not only get more insight in to who you are; it also allows them to connect with you during the conversation. Maybe they see a band that they love in your Top Artists or they just went to a concert you’d like. Now you two have something in common and are one step closer to a match! 


And last but not least, Bumble’s SuperSwipe feature allows you to let potential matches know that you’re particularly interested in them. You tap the yellow heart at the top right of their bio and boom, they’ve been SuperSwiped! Men who use SuperSwipe are twice as likely to get a match, so this is a guaranteed way to increase your match count!
