Introducing Convo Starters: The Easiest Way to Start a Chat with a Match

We know that initiating a conversation time and time again can be tiring — especially when the responsibility lies solely on your shoulders. To help you in that intoxicating moment when you’ve made a match you feel really good about, we’ve introduced Convo Starters.

You can now select one of our suggested first moves right from the match screen. That’s right: All of the ways to get to know someone, none of the time spent scratching your head.

  1. Start swiping on Bumble Date, Bumble BFF, or Bumble Bizz to connect with new people in your area.
  2. Boom! It’s a match. Want to get the conversation flowing right away? See the next step.
  3. From the match screen, tap the blue icon to see 20 of our foolproof first moves. If you’re not a fan of what you see, minimize the screen, and click again to generate 20 new Convo Starters.
  4. Once you’ve chosen a Convo Starter that speaks to you, you can send the line as is or edit it to make it a little more personal.
  5. Want more time before making your first move? You can also use Convo Starters from any match screen. Simply open the chat, select the blue ‘Need a good opener?’ ribbon to see our list of icebreakers again.

If “Hey” and “What’s up?” aren’t getting you anywhere, try our Convo Starters Generator to spark a meaningful, exciting conversation.
