Bumble: Dating & Friends App for Negative User Reviews

App not letting me loginSo this problem started 3 days ago right before i updated my app my app logs me out of my account on its own and doesn’t let me log back in even after updating the app. I had a few people i was talking to there and had more than 50 likes pending on my profile and suddenly i couldn’t log into my account. So i sent an email to your support, i got no response whatsoever again so i created a new account from scratch, and now i got logged out of my new account on its own!!!!!!! I can’t log in to my previous account which was linked to Facebook and now the new account to which is linked to my apple ID and phone number. Guys you need to help me get my account backkk!!.Version: 5.249.0

Can't Match/Guys Are LazyI'm going to make this short and simple. I've been on this app like five times before, and although I've met some incredible people and had some great times, I say that online dating is risky. It's for people who are lonely for some specific reason and want company, but don't necessarily want to date. That's not the apps fault, but I just want anyone who's reading this to know that if things don't work out it's not you, it's just online dating. Now on to technical issues and the men on there. I've logged on with my Facebook, and I put ton of care into my bio, even putting attractive photos and I haven't matched with anyone. I know how this sounds lol but I honestly think my phone or the app is broken (at least for my profile). I tested this my liking a whole bunch of profiles, even guys I'm not interested in (or dtf guys) and still nothing. It's been three days! Not one like. It's kinda peculiar. When I was on here before, within 24 hours there would be tons of matches, but now it's not working. Also, I think bumble should allow both parties to message first because it's too much pressure on me to always message first and then sometimes get nothing, because the dude believes he has to be chased and sold. It's weird. In conclusion, I'm going to try tinder..Version: 3.2.2

Bumble reviewI’m not liking how I match with someone, message, and hardly any matches message back. I miss notifications of new matches often. They don’t show up sometimes until they’ve disappeared, out of time. Maybe that’s part of the reason others miss messages. Sometimes I’ll get a notification I have a match and when in the app there is none there. Also 24 hours is not long enough to message or respond first. Most people goo on the app at a similar time each day. If I go on at 10pm one day. Have a match straight after. Don’t message because of the late hour. Forget the next day. And then by the time I go on the next day, if I’m later than 10pm, I’ve missed the match. Make it 48hrs please..Version: 5.249.0

Equality - make it a fair dating experience for everyone.In my personal opinion I don’t like the rule of women having to make the first move and message first (honestly, if I knew that beforehand I wouldn’t of joined) but that being said why doesn’t this app use that different technique in a different way? As in the first person who is interested first and likes a profile be the one to start the conversation off and message first. As myself and probably a few other people get frustrated when someone likes you first and usually isn’t the one to start a conversation. I did like the timing feature when you matched, I thought that was a good idea for both parties. As it initiates conversation, rather the downside of being matched and being left ignored or left on read. Also, I found touchscreen really sensitive. As when I was scrolling down a profile it would swipe right and then I wasn’t able to go back, as other dating apps allow..Version: 5.324.1

Claims not fulfilledSays women get the first move but no, we get to see a few (very, VERY few in comparison to other sites) men over a week, but unless they show interest in the woman, there is no way to make contact. Must be designed by men as this IN NO WAY GIVES WOMEN THE FIRST MOVE. Certainly do not waste any money in attempt of a better experience with this app. It’s exactly the same. Waste of time. Totally. Wish I could give a minus rating. It would be minus 5.Version: 3.37.0

Pay, pay, pay to use bumbleI haven’t had much luck with this app, mostly because you have to pay to do most things. Want to leave a comment? Pay. Want to extend a match past 24 hours? Pay. Want to see who likes you? Pay. Want more than 20 likes a day? Pay. Want people to actually see your profile? Pay. Want to use filters for your search? Pay And not a little either, as much as $30 per WEEK. If you don’t respond to your match within 24 hours (you know, if you have any kind of life and aren’t glued to your phone), the match will expire and, you guessed it, you have to pay. You even have to pay just to say “nice smile.” Just way too much to pay with all of the quality free apps out there. Another huge concern if their “right” to take your info and photos and do anything with them that they please, including selling the info/photos. Their opt out option seems full of odd and manipulative legal-ese. EDIT: I’ve deleted this app. It’s terrible. I have a life other than bumble, so I’m done with their “24 hour rule” which, of course, you can PAY to get around this rule they say is “so important.” If it’s so important, why can you pay to defeat it? I’m also deleting because I’m traveling. I’m not looking for a hookup, and I want to keep my location in my hometown. If I want to do that however, guess what? I have to pay. To heck with this terrible greedy company. Take other sucker’s money, you’ll never get any of mine. Hinge, OkCupid, and even Tinder (even TINDER.).Version: 5.335.0

Be careful with “free trial”It’s a good app for expanding your options for dates / friends if used in conjunction with trying to meet people IRL. I found relying solely on bumble will leave you disappointed. Also, the 14 day free trial really isn’t free. You will be charged for 6 months of service. Thankfully I was able to get mine refunded by Apple..Version: 5.136.0

App has strange policiesThey have permanent ban. This is really negative for an app about relationships. Also, it is an app for hookups. Girls should be out of this app if they care about their future..Version: 5.327.0

Worst app even after premiumTinder better then this Even you paid the money for It, you will not get any matches.. just worst app I am telling you!! I paid the premium on tinder and I am having so many matches. Bumble premium is expensive n still you ll not get any matches!! On tinder you’ll get supper likes to get your liked ones attention but there is nothing in here, just a money making app !! If there is option for 0 star I would give the 0 to this dumb bumble..Version: 5.189.0

Needs better featuresI think all dating apps has its pros and cons but what Bumble lacks is putting it behind apps like Tinder (I hate to even compare it to Tinder) and Hinge. For example, Tinder at least has the feature where you can search numbers through your contact list and block them from seeing your profile in the app. I wish Bumble had a similar feature because you do see a lot of the same user profiles in most of the dating apps and I’d like to be able to block someone that I didn’t necessarily connect well with or from having a family member or coworker see my profile. Also the 24 hour match feature where the woman has to message the guy first and wait for him to respond during that time or else the match completely disappear is just not right. I sometimes go days without checking the app because I’m busy with work and life in general or choose to take mental breaks, before logging back on and then finding my “match” has disappeared. I’ve lost many potential matches this way or some that I’ve messaged and they don’t respond with the 24 hours. At least give the woman (who has to message the match” an option to extend that message time so that maybe when the guy logs back on, he has a chance to see the actual message..Version: 5.249.0

Unused or dead profiles.For 11,000 ratings I found a lot of girls profiles are dead or not being used. I found scammers, empty profiles and plain lazy girls who just let your match expire. If admin could fix that I would give bumble 4/5 as the expirery for a match is just silly. Guys should also have the opportunity to message first..Version: 5.197.0

Honest Review About BumbleThrough my 2 year experience with the app, I’d like to give me truthfully and honest opinion about the app. First off I give it a 3 star because this app doesn’t care about weather or not you find someone. At one point it did but now it’s turned into a “pay to play” app, which is unfortunate considering how much bumble pushes and promotes finding “the one” through them. Number 2 bumble has a simple algorithm: we give you a limited amount of swipes, we’ll have 2 “mock” profiles shoot you likes but you won’t get to see them nor be able to like them back. Oh no you ran out of swipes? Well simple pay us for premium and you’ll get all the benefits except the two profiles that liked you won’t text you within the 24 hour period we give them to text you. Now for the rest of the time you have premium you’ll have all the benefits but won’t reap the reward of finding someone. Very simple algorithm to understand and it amazes me how the app will consistently continue to make you believe that you’ll eventually find a match. So inclusion if you are going to spend money on a dating app, go to Tinder; because at least there, they won’t sell you a bunch of lies to keep you on there..Version: 5.299.0

Leaves a sour tasteOk, the notion that women make the first move. It’s novel. Even as a guy I kinda like that - at least I know she might be interested. I do wonder where it leaves non binary people though. But anyway - it’s far too easy to accidentally swipe the wrong way - or you just switch over to use another app for a moment, then when you come back to Bumble it refreshes and you lose the person whose profile you were checking out and maybe liked. It just leaves a sour taste when you’re always frustrated about that kind of thing. I mean I understand they’ve got to make money, but really, please find another way - you want dating to be fun and exciting, not frustrating because you keep losing access to prospective matches due to stupid reasons that you can’t undo..Version: 5.286.0

Bumble deleted my account! Said I was underage!!!!I have been in Bumble happily since 2017, after divorce, had 2 relationships from Bumble, so took a break. Been back on the App a while. Had a coffee date planned for today. Yesterday I go to the App they have ‘banned me for being under age!’ I requested their proof of this. Of course I’m not underage, I have an adult child. They want me to send a copy of my passport or driving licence!!!! Bumble is not a bank, passport office, I don’t send copies of my passport to an App that has no phone number, no human you can talk to. Shocking, I’m not sending a copy of my passport to ‘Bumble’, how do I know who is looking at my personal details or where they are going. So a warning, Bumble will delete and block your account without any proof you have done anything wrong. I’m assuming it’s a bot that has got an algorithm wrong. I emailed and asked for evidence how they reached the conclusion I’m ‘underage’, just kept getting the same generic email back, no evidence how they reached this conclusion. How could I divorce in 2017, have an account and be a ‘child’! I was annoyed now I just think it’s a hilarious story to tell people and warn them against Bumble..Version: 5.355.0

Randomly blocked after limited use with no explanationUsed the app on and off and have found it easy to use and a good way to meet people. Restarted using the app after a few weeks dating a member that didn’t work out. Was using the app periodically and only having short “small talk” like conversation with a few people. Next minute I was randomly blocked. Asked for a review and received a suspiciously quick “bot” response that didn’t actually respond to the specifics of my email to Support. I am a professional female in my 30s with appropriate photos and profile information. I do not ask people to follow my social media. I don’t sell services or goods. And I certainly don’t talk about anything of a sexual nature. Any issue with my profile or behaviour is clearly vexatious and Bumble Support do not offer a proper review, just copy and paste responses..Version: 5.246.0

Good in way yet...Based on today (12 Jan 2021), bumble’s gimmick / imagery like Hollywood in its many manifestations is selling the idea that the only mixed race dichotomy worth anyone’s time is white and black (usually a sophisticated black man and a white woman, sophistication being the man’s signifier which speaks of class interests etc, interesting how you never see a drab black man, and whiteness in itself, all that is needed some would say, being hers). This is problematic and fairly sinister as these supposed prominent successes (an advertiser’s wet dream really as they are able to sell their product with the implicit Tagline being that their product has managed to quell society’s great ill — racism!) mask structural everyday real inequalities as it bounds us to very limited social parameters ....Apart from that Bumble’s alright I guess!.Version: 5.197.0

Dosent work if you’re an average blokeBumble unfortunately does not work if you haven’t been blessed with good looks. I’ve been on this thing for ages and barely get any matches. I haven even tried the spotlight and super liking people but nothing helps. Changed my profile my picture a hundred times but to no avail. I’m just gonna die alone 😅.Version: 5.120.0

FeedbackJust some feedback from my experience.. I think having only 24 hours to message a match is too short. In my opinion, I think 3 or 4 days would be better. Life is busy and not everyone has the time to be on a dating site 24/7!! And if you want feedback, why do you need a nickname? I’ve tried 4 times and the ‘nickname’ is taken..Version: 3.23.1

It’s okayI don’t use the apps much but during Covid and for travels to meet People I opened it. If you’re looking to meet people and go on dates this is not for you sorry. Better bet would be badoo. Maybe i haven’t had it for long enough but the guys here while they will answer and I had a lot of matches expect the girl to do all the work not just with writing them first but the whole time. Meanwhile from other apps I’ve actually met up with guys and met interesting ones from other countries. While the guys here are attractive and accomplished it doesn’t do much when I already have dates lined up from other apps that have maybe more choices but guys that aren’t as appealing. I refuse to pay to use any of these apps, just wanted to see how it goes. I’m sure there’s great guys on here but they need to realize girls can get lots of messages and offers and they should act fast instead of waiting around for the girl to propose something . I’m old fashioned and like that Guys here don’t say inappropriate things and there are a lot of quality guys. But when you hear the same ones have been on it forever maybe it’s because you guys put zero effort into it. I even put my Instagram account in my profile so guys can contact me there and I’m open to meet and respond to my matches. It makes me wonder why guys even have these apps on their phones.Version: 5.269.0

Deceptive with your matching preferences.Not a bad app. Haven’t gotten any targeted ads yet, and haven’t been smothered with obvious fakes either. I’m giving the lower rating because they have basically put the “Dealbreaker” buttons in your range settings as a placebo. I’ve been trying to go mile-by-mile outward, because there is an entire college just outside of 40 miles away, and my queue will be entirely dominated by people from that college if I don’t restrict my range. What I find happening anyway is I will still see people OUTSIDE that range after I’ve set my range to be a dealbreaker! Even sneakier, I will sometimes find that this setting has been turned off for me, as if they’re trying to pull a fast one on me. In addition, how is it that one day I can swipe through every profile in a specific range, but the next day there’s several less than 10 miles out? Not likely they made their profile day, since that little “new here” bubble appears on their profile. There is clearly some sneaky business going on to restrict your swiping to people who will never see your profile past a certain point, and hold some in reserve so you can swipe on for longer. In the end, however, these practices are less predatory than most of your other options for dating apps. If you’re dead set on picking on, this is probably your best bet..Version: 5.203.0

Used to be Better - New limits kinda killed itI started using this app right around 2016 and had a decent amount of luck on it. I think back then there was a limit of 100 swipes per day or more. What I understand is that while the free version needs to limit the swipes to monetize, the experience as a straight male suffers as a result. It’s not that I think the limit on males is really a problem, but it’s the limit for women that makes the experience worse. Let’s say I pay for premium (I once considered lifetime which I’m not sure is an option anymore?). Sure, I’d get unlimited swipes, but any women using the free version still get 25/day, so this will make the smaller population pickier which just hurts everyone. Idk for sure, but I’m willing to bet the population that pays most are straight men. Maybe consider increasing the free limit for just women to 50+/day? The way I see it, it would create a ripple, men have more potential matches, more incentive to subscribe, and women feel less concerned to only pick 25 per day. From my perspective, I’m never going to subscribe if 2/350 match when it used to be 5/100 or so. Why would I pay to swipe through 100 people a day if it means less than 1 per day match and 1/500 start the conversation?.Version: 5.320.0

Snooze modeThis mode should be used to slow the pace down while you are talking to a few people and not having to worry about new matches talking to you. After swiping and getting matches I went on snooze but still had new matches show up ? Annoying! Also it most definitely should not notify your matches when you come out of snooze !.Version: 5.243.0

Transgender women were bannedRidiculous app. Homophobic to transgender people. Respect LGBT community and we must have the same rights with all other straight people. Worst app ever. When i entered my phone it says please check the number again and when use a different number then it allows me to create an account. In less than 24 hours it logs me out and says please check your number eventhough there is no message saying “account was banned”. This is ridiculous. We are sending people complaints to tribunal to help us banned this app for discriminating transgender. Hope you will settle this conflict and a serious matter. Bye.Version: 5.121.0

Too many notifications.Hey guys- consider either cutting the push notifications wayyyyy down, or letting us have a choice on which we want to receive! All these cheesy notifications are overkill. I’d rather just get notifications 1. When I have a match and 2. When I have a new msg. That’s it. Eliminate the rest! Otherwise fun app.Version: 2.17.0

Hate this appDeceiving in their pricing. I initially signed up for what I thought was a week trial of $9.99 for the week. Turned out it was actually a 6 month subscription for $80 that was automatically paid through my ITunes. When I saw the charge in my checking account I was shocked & tried to cancel but was told it wasn’t possible because of the way I paid. I don’t recall having the option to choose the way I paid, it was like it just automatically pulled from there because that’s what was set up on my phone. I immediately went in to cancel the membership from my phone so it wouldn’t renew in 6 months. I guess it needs to be cancelled while signed into my account from a computer because it ended up automatically renewing at another $80 for 6 months. If I was getting decent matches, it would be ok, but seems like this app isn’t used much by a lot of decent men in my area. When I travel, I get swarmed by hits, but long distance relationships don’t work for me. I also don’t like that they only have 24 hours to respond. So unless you are married to your phone & have nothing else better to do than check this app constantly, those likes are gone to never being even again. Life gets busy & sometimes you just don’t have time or cell/wi-fi coverage to constantly see who wants to connect. I would give this app zero stars, but that wasn’t an option..Version: 5.154.0

EwwwIt’s amazing that you only seem to get matches when you pay or start a new account. Thanks for the games..Version: 5.300.0

Disappointing updateI like Bumble and have had success with it, however I am disappointed in the latest update that removed the two free filters. This was a major thing to help find the type of person I am looking for. I don’t want to use Bumble after this update. I don’t think we should need to pay for two filters. Please change it back..Version: 5.244.0

DescriminationBased on the information shared by people, I can see the founder of this application applied a brief and clear discrimination officially and globally in Apple platform and Apple Store by giving the option to a group of people and restricting other people to send the message etc. this is discrimination and a shame for not bumble but Apple. Introducing the discrimination and the group of people who manage this platform, getting people’s money and without any reason they simply banned subscriber why they promote a lifetime access to their platform. If you banned someone then refund their money! You cannot charge people and banning them for some ridiculous internal decision without even sending them a warning or letting them know the reason at least they understand what they should do and avoiding those behaviour or action in the future. Simply you are against human being right and after people’s money. This is shame for bumble as well as Apple to give them this opportunity to implement discrimination behaviour and facilitating their fraud activity..Version: 5.336.0

Feels unsafeI use a few dating apps (Tinder + Hinge as well), and at first I felt like Bumble was the best because I had the option to send a message first, which I liked! Kind of ironic that Bumble actually played out to be the app I feel the most unsafe on. I’ve matched with very sketch people on here. I’m not sure what it is about this app but most of my matches have all had stalker-like tendencies and when I actually met up with one of them in person (because the others were very obvious red flags concerning SAFETY that I wasn’t willing to try), I felt completely unsafe because they had continued to stalk me, create new profiles and try to catfish me, followed me under different instagram accounts etc until I finally decided to change my phone number. I did report one instance to Bumble and was not notified on how it was handled. Mind you, went out with this guy ONCE. I’m still afraid to this day that he is following me somehow. I’ve had A LOT better luck with Hinge specifically, their team is super responsive QUICK and take reports seriously, which makes me feel good! Hinge has been fun and I’ve met great people there! Not sure if it’s because Bumble requires the woman to make the first move…? I think the waiting game culminates into an obsessive kind of behavior, personally. Would not recommend to friends (I tell them stick with Hinge)..Version: 5.246.0

Don’t Use!App forces you to pay just to see who likes you.Version: 5.328.0

JUSTICE FOR LAURENA black woman died after being seen last with her bumble date. This app is obviously not safe for you ladies. It doesn’t care about your safety. Obviously they don’t control the people on there but at least acknowledge and support the investigation..Version: 5.245.1

Expensive… doesn’t seem worth itThe paid options for this app are a bit of a joke; premium is £40/month?!? You only get 5 superswipes/week with premium and you can’t just buy one after- you have to buy at least 2 at £3 each?? Superswipes aren’t even worth it; by my understanding, you appear first when they are scrolling through, but they aren’t notified that you’ve superswiped them?? The app may not be to blame (although it does just seem like a money making scheme) for people not swiping right, but as a guy, you will absolutely not get many likes, even swiping right for hundreds of women (I don’t believe women are vain and aren’t attracted to men based on looks, so the idea of dating apps, especially with minimalistic bios, doesn’t really make sense). My profile isn’t that bad either and I’ve had more success than a lot of my friends. Again, not the app’s fault per se, but I’ve read reviews about women complaining at guy’s not replying to their initial message- how do you think us guys feel?? I hate it when men message loads of girls and I don’t do it personally, but what are meant to do when we get hundreds of ghosted messages? Ladies don’t know how lucky they have it (I know a lot of messages can be unwelcomed but)- it’s ignorant if you don’t know how often a single guy will get rejected in his life..Version: 5.248.0

This app ISN’T free?Im confused. This app is free to install and is free to use. This is a free dating app. However, you have to pay an absurdly large amount just to get with people? So to start talking with people, both of you need to swipe right on one another. If you swipe first, they’ll see and then have to swipe. Im assuming the other has to deal with this if you swipe first, but if your other swipes first, they’ll appear for you, but are blurred and you can’t swipe them. As a matter of fact, you can’t do anything, unless you pay an uncomfortable amount for a subscription. That’s what I don’t like about programs that are free. In the long run, they’re more expensive then a program you’d have to pay for. Please stop saying it’s free when it isn’t..Version: 5.244.0

Not user friendly and confusingNew design is hideous and not user friendly — I don’t see the full photo — because of new design sometimes the person is completely cropped out before you enlarge the photo. You to click through the photos to get to the personal info (I’m using BFF so don’t care what they look like). It now says I run out of potential matches, yet at the left loo corner it shows there are 27 ppl who swiped right...super odd and inconvenient to use.Version: 5.180.0

Pretty badSo this app is actually quite sexist. And because of this guys including myself put down they’re a female to avoid waiting for the girl to reply. 24 hours. We could of matched and kicked it off but she could of been busy and then we both miss out you know? And also because of this there are so many guys so you can’t just swipe right without looking so it takes up a lot of time.Version: 5.290.0

New update of layout not user friendlyGreat app! But the latest update takes longer and is not user friendly with having to take longer to look through a profile. The previous version was great and you can just scroll to the bottom to see the full profile. The current one is off-putting and it’s sad coz I loved using bumble before this current version. Please dismiss this update if possible..Version: 5.182.0

It’s a ScamI’ve few likes but they are not showing it purposely. So, that you will buy subscription. Money hungry. Worst app.Version: 5.329.1

What’s with the time restrictions??Been paying for premium and the only real difference is that I can see who’s swiped right on me first. You can extend the amount of time you have (as a female) to talk to someone you’ve matched with, but you’re still left waiting for a guy to respond within 24hrs. Bit of a laugh really, don’t see the point in the time restrictions at all. Stick with the free version, “additional features” not worth paying for. Pros: FAR less buggy than Tinder.Version: 3.21.0

Don’t waste your time or low your self esteem.Had Bumble and a few other dating apps for multiple years but bumble is the only one where I hardly get any matches. At the start of the year thought might as well try their bumble lifetime premium membership and made no difference, have used spotlight multiple times but doesn’t make a difference. Have had female friends review my dating profile and they said it’s pretty good so nothing wrong with what I’ve uploaded. Would like to add that I’m good/decent looking from what friends/strangers have told me so I doubt it’s looks so it’s got to be bumbles algorithm. Lastly the rare ones that I would match with once a month would chat for a while but would stop after a few messages. You got better chances using anything else..Version: 5.269.0

Decent, But Bios…I find profiles to be slightly better quality than Tinder, although it has dipped in the past year, however people keep advertising their Instagram profiles in their bios. Honestly, this behaviour makes me want to avoid this app because it’s merely attention-seeking..Version: 5.275.0

Not the bestBumble is definitely one of a kind, the fact that the girl has to message first is a fantastic feature. However there are too many negatives sadly to leave a review higher than this, FYI I have been using bumble on and off for over 2 years. I have been a paid member and the benefits of the membership are good but it is way to expensive for what you get. For example you get 5 super likes a week and 1 spotlight, however the spotlight seems to just use itself on its own. The best part about this app is the speed dating feature, amazing idea and really does work.. However… you almost have to buy a spotlight for it to work, it is very slow at matching if you don’t have one. So to counter this I bought a pack of 5 spotlights, come back the following Sunday for the speed dating to find that all my spotlights had been used already, not when I wanted to use them. This is just poor, especially when it’s so expensive to buy them. If they fix these issues and increase the value for money on the subscription side of things, I’d have no problem leaving a 5* review..Version: 5.324.1

New Face No DifferenceNot sure whether this is going to be read or not but I personally feel there’s no difference in what toxic things used to happen on Tinder is happening here too. I’m a person of color with brown skin, and I genuinely feel the factor of racism is still there on people judging on based on color and race. Also I feel girls are pulling the same stunt they used on Tinder with putting their IG link on their bio which is only there to get them followers and likes (keeping guys on their hanging list) and here to just satisfy their ego. With happening 9/10 times, the factor of even using the app lowers down after seeing all this over half a year. Not sure if anything can be done on this but just wanted to share a real story of what’s happening. PS: Hard to believe that girls need over 24hrs to make a move but still fails to do it consistently..Version: 5.255.2

Boring and unfriendlyThe free version is boring it lacks profiles and also if you don’t pay you don’t get view fast. Not better than tinder for sure. Also they have ridiculous rules like selfies on the mirror with shorts are not allowed because they look like underwear (!!!) not only in many cases this is not the case but it seems like an inappropriate extreme rule of censorship. What it annoys the most it’s not only algorithm that censors this things but also the automatic response you get from “the team”. Very disappointing experience so far..Version: 5.261.0

Bot-FriendlySame old, same old. Standard dating app that uses bots to try and get you to subscribe responding to made up profiles..Version: 3.6.0

Don’t dare lose weight while using bumble!Hey everyone, I recently lost 125 pounds and now my Bumble pictures don’t look like my verification picture because, you guessed it, losing 125 pounds makes you look a very different. Apparently the moderators at Bumble can’t understand this very simple fact and their trash customer service is only capable of sending copy pasted generic email responses or flat out banning you. I WAS BANNED FOR LOSING WEIGHT LMAO Use at your own risk. Pierre.Version: 5.170.0

Another scamming dating AppI’m not sure if bumble is struggling financially because of the current global situation but they have taken (like a few other dating apps) to misleading their customers in order to make a buck. I have had a profile set up for a while. I have set my parameters to find a match to being within a few kms of my City. This cuts out a lot of over seas and distant match’s, that imo, are generally a waste of time. Recently they added the ‘boost’ whereas if you pay a premium, you get to match with your secret admirers. Within a couple of days I had a dozen or so matches so I paid for the feature. I checked out my now uncovered list of secret admirers and was shocked to see that not one of them was in my City!! They were scattered across the country and I believe a couple of them were not even in my country! I immediately contacted support (within 5 mins) asking for a refund on the basis that they had been disingenuous and had tricked me into paying for the subscription which is against consumer law in my country. They declined to refund me because I had agreed to the terms and conditions. Luckily, Apple agree to abide by consumer laws of my Country and have refunded me. Bumble have been disingenuous and unscrupulous in their transaction with me and I would strongly recommend that people use one of the many dating apps that conduct business ethically. I gave them 1 star as I could not give them 0!.Version: 5.161.1

Worst Dating App Ever! Waste of money!The most boring app ever! Scam in a sense. No worth what so ever. 0 stars!.Version: 5.277.0

The Worst appIve been using it for quite a while, but they banned my account without warning or explanation. I’m positive I did not violate any community guide lines. While I was using it I would often be spammed with various notifications trying to convince me to purchase their premium subscription..Version: 5.330.0

Good, but dark patterns are not coolPersonally, I’m enjoying the app and I really love that you’ve added video chat. Presumably you did that in response to COVID, but it should have always been a feature. Please always keep it. It’s a fantastic way to get a “first look” at someone before you commit to making the effort to dress up nicely and go out. The reason for my 3-star review is the dark patterns you employ to trick people into buying a subscription when they join. I told 3 friends how great, and free, Bumble is. All 3 of them ended up feeling disappointed and ripped off after stumbling into a subscription and then not being able to find more than ~6 matches. One friend had to expand her search to ALL OF AUSTRALIA to get any matches! She has written to you requesting a refund and I really hope you oblige..Version: 5.182.0

Fake dating siteThis site is 99% bots and old unused profiles. The app makers are scammers, just tricking people out of their money. Its all blatantly obvious within an hour on the app. App is made to scam people with very low IQ’s. Just delete this trash..Version: 5.315.0

SusI don’t know what it is about Bumble- if it’s the fact that women start the conversation, causing them to use it less, or a lack of use relative to other dating apps, or the algorithm for non-paying users- but in the month I have had it I haven’t had a single match. And I’m not saying this as a bummed out nerd who is taking their lack of female attention out on the app itself; I use just about every other dating platform and get consistent likes/matches. It makes me think that users who don’t pay suffer when it comes to views, but I’m not willing to pay the INSANE amount of money they are asking to test that theory. They could easily offer a lower tier of premium with the use of ad revenue, rather than banking that users will pay the exorbitant amount of money required to get your profile out there - and that goes for all dating apps. This no doubt causes users to lose faith in the app, or the process in general, and it’s not a sustainable business model. It’s a bummer, too, I honestly like the idea of women starting the conversation and I’m sure it’s a welcome breath of fresh air for them, not constantly being bombarded by creepy dudes all day long. I also like the profile structure (apart from the MEGA cheesy prompt selection). Maybe one day I’ll try paying for a month to see if that makes a difference, but for the time being, Hinge and Tinder seem to be working 🤷🏻‍♂️.Version: 5.282.0

Poor user supportI’ve been a user of this app for years. I made very little matches, not due to lack of appeal but because it would run out of people every day after showing me about 8 profiles. This is even after setting my distance to 100km+ and having a 10 year age range. However, despite not being able to make connections and have conversations with other profiles due to these limitations, my account was permanently blocked “due to multiple reports”. I reached out to support for a review and some clarity on which guidelines I supposedly broke but my account remained blocked and my questions were left unanswered multiple times. I am disgusted by your poor user support and unfair account moderation when I would see multiple profiles promoting their drug dealing or with nude pics daily. It’s hard enough to use dating apps as a gay man but to be blocked from one of the biggest ones for unknown reasons is insane and displays very poor use of user moderation and the support I received was nothing if not unhelpful and lazy. There is no way that I would encourage others to use Bumble from now on after this experience. Do better Bumble..Version: 5.322.0

New update not an improvementReally wish I hadn’t updated my app. It takes ages to load now. So long, in fact, that often times I don’t bother using it at all. I also am not a fan of the new ways to look through a persons profile. The photos sometimes stay blurry and it’s just awkward going from photo to blurb to photo to blurb, blurb, blurb. I felt the scrolling was a better function. Really hoping there is an update soon, will likely delete the app otherwise. Unrelated to the new functionality the app was a decent way to meet decent people (when I didn’t run out of people to match)..Version: 5.177.0

Additional services have ridiculous pricingI’m a premium user with a monthly subscription. Y But I must say the strategy used to bait the users to spend more on additional features doesn’t seem very ethical. Price for additional services is just absurd! $10 per compliment? And based on that you all have made discounts to draw users to buy 30 for $70! Plus the spotlight is just a joke too. The auto spotlight kicks in at odd times when there’s no much users using the app, and it gets wasted. Might need to review that algorithm! I’ve turned this feature off! When it comes to speed dating, although I’m a premium user I never get a chat! And it seems apparent that this is done on purpose as it keeps prompting me to buy additional spotlights! Come on? Why do this to a premium user? Plus the recent feature of adding a question you all included into the profile. What’s the point of having it if a user still need to buy compliments to answer it?? You all need to review these additional features and be much more reasonable and fair with the offers and pricing. At least provide users some amount of compliments per week similar to how you all give spotlights and super swipes!.Version: 5.328.0

Shocking, so money orientated it’s blatantly obviousHave tried Bumble many times but like a lot of other dating apps come away very disappointed due to the obvious fact you aren’t going to get the opportunity to match with anyone unless you pay for their upgraded services. As an example I tried their speed dating which runs from 7pm-8pm. I managed to speak to two people in a whole hour for 3 mins a time, the rest of the time I was prompted to upgrade to spotlight which is obviously a paid service. Everything on this site points to the fact you aren’t going be successful or probably even shown unless you sign up and pay for their additional services, which doesn’t even guarantee any further success. I’d advise against these dating apps if you are genuinely looking to meet someone unless you want to pay for the additional services where you might have improved luck. Just reading the other apps mirrors what I have said and I just wish I’d read them before going so not to waste my time..Version: 5.334.0

Not really worth your timeAs a guy, was really good when it first launched. But since then, I’d say over 80% of the profiles are fake and/or promoting the exact same OF page, and many with the same pics. Please clean up those fake profiles and make it much harder for them to start accounts. Also, too many people collecting likes and not actually talking. Perhaps make it so that if you match, and respond to the first message and start a conversation, and if they don’t respond within a certain time frame, it’s automatically unmatched and it reduces the amount of right swipes you get for the following week..Version: 5.317.0

HelpThis event happened over a year ago and I’ve yet to receive any response or for of communication from anyone from the Bumble team. I matched with this girl and from the beginning I should’ve seen the red flags. We met up to hang out then insisted I go back to her place. I was hesitant to do it but I wasn’t expecting anything bad to happen. After a few drinks we were sitting on the couch and she started touching me. I wasn’t comfortable with the way this was happening so I told her to stop. Needless to say she didn’t. She just kept touching me. I must’ve offended her because she insulted me and said I must not like girls if I didn’t consent, then proceeded to grab me. I’m a large man so I was able to get her away and left. I went to report her in the app but it seems she had gotten to me first. I couldn’t even go to the police if I wanted to because I had no way of getting her name or info because bumble banned my profile and any new ones I try to create. I’ve sent countless emails to them hoping to get unbanned or at least the information from the girl. I even attached as much evidence as I could to support my claims, but haven’t hear a single word. All I want is to make sure this doesn’t happen to other men or people in general. Seems like the team at bumble isn’t very worried about the safety of their users. At this point I don’t want to make another profile I just want help..Version: 5.269.0

High volume, low funI like the interface and the chat options. That's about it. I use the service because everyone else is here. What I dislike the most is how the chat history disappears when the connection is unmatched. If someone actually wanted to be an adult and end the convo maturely it'll all be for nothing because the other person will never see the last message. Bumble makes everyone ghosters. What if someone wanted to say, "hey I'm getting off here text me at ......" then unmatches everyone cause they don't know what happens on the other end... we'd never know! Second, also in the realm of ghosting, I dislike the 24 hour response window. I'm trying to match with quality men and I don't expect any to log in and respond everyday on a dating app. That means the most valuable matches are risked being lost; forever. These things make the experience very disappointing. Then there are other nuances like auto sending a gif. Or not being able to swipe back to the chat list (instead it initiated the reply function, so annoying). And alerting the other party of you playing the question game... Real smooth Bumble. Please get rid of the timer and deleting the full chat history. If anything change to a fun response if someone responds in the first 24 hours and only removing the chat typing box after an unmatch..Version: 5.247.0

Bad experience so far :(Hi I was really liking this app at first and I was even thinking about purchasing some of the things on the app but then not even two days from starting up my account I get blocked and it’s saying I was reported for promoting my social medias when I don’t have any even linked to my account I’ve read through all of the terms and conditions and I’m very sad that this can just happen for no reason I really want this fixed so that I can use the app and know that I’m not gonna get kicked off for no reason now I’m scared make a purchase with you guys because what if I do it and then get blocked when I have not done anything wrong my account is appropriate nothing harmful to others and the fact that I see a bunch of people doing drugs when I was sliding through my swipes and that’s bad behavior being allowed and I’m getting blocked for no reason I’m very mad about it I just really want my account back and an answer to why people are allowed to make false reports ruining other peoples experiences. please get back to me I just really wanna answer to why this can happen and why it’s happening to me i’m writing this as a review because it’s not allowing me to email you guys. even if I was to give my social media to one of my matches it’s my choice and normal to talk to someone outside of your app once you meet I’m not just putting it openly on my account..Version: 5.278.1

Get tinder this app is dumbThis app is a ghost town, you run out of people to swipe in a couple minutes and if you manage to match with someone they live miles away. If you get a couple matches the girl has to message first and if your lucky enough to actually to get a message it is just “hey” every single time. LAME.Version: 5.318.0

Disappointed & Let downI’ve set my profile up verified & even put my best pics up there. Even went down to read advice on bumble reviews online on how to make your profile stand out. I swipe right & left equal amount of times and had only 2 matches in who have not responded and eventually went all the way til it said that’s everyone change your filters or comeback later. I changed my filters still the same and even came back later no change. I feel let down & that my profile is not shown across much even spotlight too if it was a success show us who viewed your profile. If I find love. I will eventually change my mind give it more stars..Version: 5.252.0

Waste of moneyI randomly get push notifications saying I have a match, but no match. Or the latest saying I won’t be shown to women looking through the app. Unsure why you’d ever want to notify me of this. I’ve paid for this app for about a year and had 0 success. Any like I give to a girl is wasted because they don’t see my profile. After months of receiving no likes or matches, I messaged them. There was no help, and instead I was told I’m stupid and wrong. Very off brand for Bumble, and very off putting in general. Then a few weeks later I had 100s of people who had liked me all in matter of hours. - I’m on other apps, I receive likes and matches so I knew something was wrong and then bam it was fixed. I still don’t receive any forward matches though - if someone likes me, I can match with them - but if I like them, I’ll never see them because they don’t see me. This app is a sham and unethical. Stop messing with algorithms and make it simple - you like someone, they see you automatically. I’m confident when my subscription runs out I’ll be treated normally by their software but once you pay them they want you to keep paying them - being in a relationship is a fast way to stop those payments. It’s in their biz interest to have paying customers receive no likes. Honestly Apple and google shouldn’t distribute this app if that’s true, they’re unethical and don’t practice what they preach..Version: 3.2.0

Not good for men with standards!If you’re an extremely gorgeous guy and I mean the 1% percent and you have zero standards and you want to meet girls that look more like -10. This app is perfect for you!.Version: 5.317.0

Most biased out of all dating appsTerribly disappointed after being a user for many years, in all my years on the app never had anything reported against me as i’ve been a regular stick to the guidelines person but suddenly out of nowhere after so many years someone decided they’d like to submit a false and unjustified report and bumble over here took none of the many years of good history and good data into account when reviewing the report. on whatever premise they like to think is just fine, they proceeded with a permanent block without even providing any proof, evidence or even the slightest reasoning as to why. so after many years of being a peacefully co-existing user in the platform’s community i’m suddenly booted without any clarifying whatsoever despite having done nothing wrong and the user who thought it would be a good idea to submit a fake and unjust report carries on having access to the platform with no consequence. the only unfair & biased dating app experience to date. perhaps review your security processes because you’ll end up burning a lot of decent users out there that would’ve stood up for your good point of difference as a dating app but now never can say so in the community because of your highly unbiased review processes. well done bumble..Version: 5.338.0

Remove the still interested/ archive push notification featureUsed to be a good app until they added this “still into this person” mid chat and if you hit continue you have to wait 24 hours for them to hit the still interested button even after you’ve both matched and have been talking. It ruins conversations and is just stupid 😂.Version: 5.140.0

So slowDecided to download the app and I l i t e r a l l y cannot get past the second loading screen. In fact, it’s a miracle if I get to the second loading screen a second time. I went as far as deleting, redownloading, restarting my phone, and it’s still so slow. I haven’t even gotten to the part where I get to set up my profile because that’s how slow it is..Version: 5.191.0

The worst dating app I’ve ever used.I find it very odd that every guy I’ve matched has either never talked or we start talking and I suddenly never hear back from them again. I’ve only exchanged numbers with two guys on this app and one suddenly disappears after we talked all night and he agreed to take me surfing and the other guy stops talking. All the guys I’ve matched with stop talking mid conversation this has happened 100 percent of the time. I’ve had at least 12+ matches and have been using this app for about a week, I’d say I’m a very attractive woman and have never had problems getting a date so I find it odd that this has happened every single time. The Bumble Bff does this as well but not as badly so I’ve stopped using the dating side of Bumble as it’s super suspect and I haven’t had any success with any of the guys I’ve matched with. I also think their are quite a few fake profiles as well but seeing all the bad reviews I’m starting to believe this app is just trying to get you to spend money as it takes so many swipes just to see whose liked you. Mine said I had 50+ likes and it stayed that way because Bumble won’t reveal even one of them for a very long time unless you pay for an upgrade. I find it odd that I can’t match with any rally handsome guys on the app but when I go out I attract good looking guys all the time. Anyways I just wanted everyone to know my experience. It’s not you, it’s this app..Version: 3.8.0

UnfairHave used this app near 3 years , got a match went on a date didn’t workout and then my acc got banned, email them back to back cause I like the app and just telling me we have received several complaints !! There is no live person or number to talk to and this just send you automated emails. Good app terrible and cruel customer service who banned you for no reason and would never listen and keep telling you that you did breach the guideline.Version: 5.203.0

Banned for no reasonI used Bumble for a long time, never had any problems. As far as I know, I followed all the rules. Out of the blue I got banned with no warning or explanation or anyway to get any recourse. That was after I paid for the premium service and I got no refund. Avoid this app. They ban people for no reason, or likely based on the lies of people you reject. Don’t waste your money. I tried emailing them several times for an explanation and got nothing. Terrible customer service. Their terms of service say that you are not entitled to a refund if you break their rules. I did not break any of their rules and yet I was canceled without a refund. Until they can figure out how to circumvent bans based on revenge reports, or false reports I would advise everyone to avoid this app. They say that they don’t ban people arbitrarily, but based on my experience and what I’ve read from other people, they ban people over flimsy or even fabricated reports. Anyone can literally submit a report accusing someone of bad offline behavior. Bumble makes no effort to verify or follow up, they just ban. It’s a joke. The policy should be that if you get banned without a warning then you get your money back. Otherwise it’s just a scam; they take your money but can decide to deny you their service without a refund for any reason they decide. Thats practically fraud..Version: 5.328.0

Okay app. Gotten more costly for less though.I rejoined this week and have to say, The new updates are terrible! The layout, what the even.. As for the paid features, they’re now a total rip off from the old days.. no 3 free shake ya phone and rewind your mistake of swiping right anymore.. you have to pay for it. It’s disappointing to see the app try to be more like tinder... Also it’s so annoying that some guys match and don’t reply, no matter what type of greeting they get. It’s no wonder women stop making effort with their messages and give a basic ‘hi’ when many of their matches don’t even bother replying in the first place... must just be an ego boost for many. This is coming from girlfriends who use the app too.. while I like that I don’t get harassed with disgusting messages, Unlike tinder, it’s off putting to always have to message first and put in effort to what I say and get nothing back lol DONT MATCH IF YOU'RE NOT INTERESTED..Version: 5.179.0

Worst app ever.This app are the biggest scam I ever seeing before. This app supposed to make people meet and build a relationship. But if they do then people they will stop using it so they go out of business. I’ve been member on and off for long time now every timeI have some people who like my profile they make me pay to show me their profile. Because they want money from you and it’s against their agenda to make you have a relationships . DONT USE IT. I will delete my account I am asking to delete my data and pictures. I will never use this app again..Version: 5.329.1

Tu me niase !The app doesn’t care about guys ! Girls are aloud to put almost naked pictures but a guy cant post a pic without a shirt !.Version: 5.311.0

Feels weirdI’ve been using this app for a week now and it feels weird and the people seem weird. I’ve matched with at least 7 women to which 3 of em never texted me. Idk y this app has the whole “women text first thing” but it somewhat seems like a missed opportunity for the guy. It’s unfair when a women matched with you, but never text simply because women don’t do that all the time. Idk if it’s for empowerment, but normally women don’t text first. Also the women I’ve matched with all seem exactly the same. Idk if it’s just coincidental but they are all are boring and answer like days later. It’s somewhat confusing, considering they matched me and liked my photos. Last but not least, I’ve encountered women who for some reason delete their accounts.... only to make another one with a different name and different pictures? I can tell it’s the same women because “Duh it’s obvious” but it’s creepy and makes me wonder who tf I’m talking to. This app is good because it’s more freedom unlike tinder, I actually feel like I can talk to ppl on here. But it suffers from the same thing tinder does. It’s just the gratification u can possibly talk to these women. It’s not guaranteed or anything. Again this app isn’t bad, surly better set up then tinder but, just awkward and boring at times. Maybe because I’m in Japan idk..Version: 5.136.0

Don’t waste your timeYou have to wait 24hrs for free swipes but then you get about 5-6 before they run out! What’s the point even. There’s also 0 point in paying, 0 features that make any difference to men.Version: 5.294.0

SCAMMERS!I am absolutely fuming!! I have just been notified that I have been charged $73 for a subscription I never signed up for! When i messaged to confront them about it so the issue could be resolved it kept saying there was an error so I couldn’t message them. This is disgusting as people work hard for their money and that was all I had and they took it without my permission for something I never signed up to!!!.Version: 5.152.0

Idea great but constant technical issuesLove the idea and dating behind the the app, but I’m having constant issues when logging on. When I first joined I would have to delete the app of my phone and re download it. Now I just can’t log in at all. Very frustrating. I’m glad I cancelled my premium membership..Version: 5.187.0

Average.It seems like it’s a user-friendly and well presented app. Though, as soon as I signed up for the boost free-trial, it appears that nothing changed in what I was able to access. There was no ability to see who had swiped right in a section that seemed like it wasn’t even there, even after reading the FAQ section, it was describing something that isn’t in the app that I could find. You can also tell that the app withholds matches so you can’t access them all at the one time... making you come back the next day. This isn’t exactly trying to find you a match, just making you stick around and hoping you’ll open your wallets for extra features. I kinda figured online dating wasn’t going to be for me. Best of luck to the rest of you. 💕.Version: 5.176.0

Takes too long to get a mutual match and a paywallI joined bumble only a couple weeks ago and had 4 maybe 5 liked by others, but they weren’t mutual so I never saw who they were. I shouldn’t have to pay money just to meet someone. I get that bumble is being the middle man in the possible relationship but that’s what gets me. It’s a “possible” relationship. I don’t know if it’ll work out or not why should I pay 40 dollars just to see someone’s profile that may or may not be close to me at all! It’s a joke and a scam. If you wanted to help people meet other people why make them pay for it? Why couldn’t you just put ads in from sponsors like you do for push notifications? That gives you money doesn’t it? Or an actual 10 second ad after so many skips then give the option for a one time purchase to stop the ads. I don’t see why I need to pay what was it 20-40 dollars for a week!?! Absolutely ridiculous what a waste of time. If you read to this point believe me it’s just like every other dating app asking for money to see someone. It’s disappointing. Oh and there’s bots as well so you if you choose to subscribe to them you may be losing money to talk to someone trying to scam you. I would go back to bumble if the paywall wasn’t there or if it was a one time purchase. So to the bumble team, Ik you won’t, but as a friendly suggestion take that into consideration and good luck..Version: 5.274.0

Kicked off with no explanationI am a school teacher. I never disrespected anyone, never rude... and I never violated any policies or community guidelines. I was kicked off bumble without explanation and my attempts to ask for clarification or what exactly I did wrong were totally ignored. After using bumble for several years, that's how you treat a customer? If you search, there are many stories like mine of people being banned with no explanation of what they did wrong . What kind of garbage is that? If people do something wrong, show proof! Tell them what they allegedly did ! Like I said, I did nothing to justify getting banned. That's unfair, unjust and unethical. Very unprofessional..and before you answer saying you investigate things thoroughly... you don't. You would have found I did nothing wrong.... and if your excuse is protecting accusers ... you don't have to reveal them... you can still tell people what community guidelines they have supposedly violated without revealing who accused them. Also investigating presupposes you talk to both sides... like police do when they investigate... and no one from bumble contacted me or asked me anything. PS Why has bumble not responded to my review? Probably because they have no justification..Version: 5.298.0

Your app sucksYou shouldn’t have to take 18 pictures to verify your profile one picture should be good and you shouldn’t have to do the exact pose and no I do not recommend this app it tinder is better.Version: 5.327.0

Inconsistent response from matchesI’ve had this app for around a month and as a woman I initially really liked the idea of messaging guys I’m genuinely interested in rather than endless messages from guys I haven’t actually matched with on other apps.. it worked great and managed to get a couple of dates, however in the last 2 weeks I’ve visited the app pretty much daily and messaged a good number of guys with absolutely no response from a single one of them, they’ve all timed out despite matching me. It could well just be me, but this rarely happened before which leads me to think from such a big jump in interest and activity to absolutely nothing at all that my account has suffered technically or I’m being restricted or limited because I haven’t yet paid any money for a premium subscription or a boost etc.. too much of a coincidence? Also, I can never seem to load the app with WiFi turned on, I physically have to turn off WiFi and use my mobile data which can be frustrating. The location is also a little too accurate for my liking, for anyone that lives in a small town or village it can be a bit daunting considering there are some horrible people out there! Started out with a great impression and now I’ve ended up completely ignoring the app and will be trying another site🤷🏼‍♀️.Version: 5.183.0

Anti women sexist rules of deleting accountsMy account has been deleted several times no doubt because I spoke my mind against sexist men. Bumble has many men on here who are from other countries and are tourists or on business in Dublin Ireland. I tell these men that I’m not a tour guide or here for hookups and that I’m here for a meaningful relationship. Yet I’ve no doubt these men take offence to that, report my account and I get deleted. Therefore bumble is totally sexist and not so different to Tinder in that you do not protect when women are standing up for themselves and you delete us from your platform because some man was not happy with us not rejecting him. There is no reason given when a person is deleted and there should be an exact reason or at least option to return if it was minor. Do you think it’s right to ban women for life from bumble? Why not give the option to regain my account ? Also I have made a formal complaint that you rely on Facebook to have an account and again a crazy ex boyfriend of mine got my Facebook account disabled. Should I be banned from online dating because I don’t have a Facebook. I cannot stress enough how anti women bumble is because you do not allow women to stand up for themselves against the Harvey Weinstein’s of the world - we are seen as rude if we do.Version: 5.133.0

FAKE FAKE FAKEI have been using this platform for five years to this day!! And did I meet a compatible guys? Nope! Im pretty open minded it, but the ones that do swipe don’t talk, the ones that do talk, disappear or unmatch you and the ones that you do meet are fake or just after a good time! They don’t even let you put a review and continue to delete it! They have created fake profiles to make women believe there are genuine guys on the app! They just want to take your money! The block you because you speak up !! Pretend there are complaints made against you, when you had over 50+swipes and only had one person in you mr chat list! How can that be possible You keep putting reviews and they keep deleting them !! Joke Beware women!!! Men take screenshot of your profiles and upload them on social media group pages where men discuss and humiliate you.Version: 5.334.0

Plays mind games with you to get you to payThis app is honestly horrific for your mental health, and I do not recommend using it unless you’re capable of remaining remarkably detached. Bumble makes no money from ads, so to make money, it taunts you into feeling the only way to get matches is to pay. You might flick through dozens of people who you don’t think you’ll click with, but as SOON as you run out of likes somebody you think would be fantastic shows up. “Oh no, if only I had more likes right now,” they want you to think. You may be online for an hour, and not receive any likes, but as SOON as you run out of likes, the app will tell you “oh, somebody just liked you!!! If only you had more likes so you could match them!” The speed dating minigame is a joke, just getting to wait in front of the screen as it tells you “we’re looking for somebody… but you could pay to find somebody sooner!” The algorithm is NOT designed to let you match to people, at least not in any easy or stress free way. It is designed to get you to pay money. To do so, it will make you feel lonely, desperate, and just out of reach of people who might be perfect for you. If you engage, I strongly advise you do so in a disconnected way, and keep these facts in mind. Do not give in and pay the company money, they do not deserve it if they can’t offer a functional and non-toxic free service.Version: 5.329.0

A thoroughly miserable, exploitative experience for menI'd say half the profiles are zombie accoumts of women who have zero intention of dating you and just want to add followers to their Instagram accounts or promote their businesses. I know this because I came across three profiles of friends who I know for a fact are not available. And how do you know your profile is being shown to people? You have no way of knowing. There is zero transparency. So there you are, right-swiping hundreds of lovelies with hopes high and fingers crossed, and you'll never know if tney even saw you. What the app is exceptionally good at is extracting money from you in a series of scammy, unverifiable gimmicks that prey on your vulnerabilities. "Boost" your profile for $2-4 to be seen by more people for 30 whole minutes! What, are you saying you weren't showing my profile before?! "Super-swipe" at $1-3 a pop so she may or may not take notice of you! Their exploitation of human weaknesses at our moments of greatest vulnerability - e.g loneliness and rejection - is masterful and deeply sinister. Finally, gentlemen (and ladies), remember that all these dating apps only make money while you're still on them. So their incentive to make more money is fundamentally misaligned with yours, which is to find a decent match so you can leave the app. Go meet real people through real friends, and save yourself a crapton of money, headache and heartache. Bumble is not your friend..Version: 5.168.0

Terrible I got blocked on the first day wasn’t even a full 24 hoursThis is a terrible app . I only had it for 1 day and they blocked me immediately for no reason. The reason it was it because they said I was doing inappropriate selling which is not true. I barely even had the app for a full day before they block me. I emailed them to try to get in contact with support so they can try to verify that wasn’t true . I asked them to show proof of that or if they can actually verify the information that they received and they didn’t have any verification of that . They still wouldn’t allow me to get the account back and they sent mea email saying they would no longer respond to any further emails .I honestly wanna sue this app because the fact that you guys blocked me for a reason that’s not true and I only had that count for less than a full day doesn’t make sense. And then you they don’t know how to properly communicate. if anybody wants to good app to use go on tinder I had the app for seven years never any problems. They won’t block you on the first day you made the account for a false reason . And if they were to you can actually contact their support team and they will figure it out because they have a good verification system instead of them just telling you that they can no longer respond without any actual evidence..Version: 5.298.0

BFF mode gender restrictedWas really interested in the BFF mode of Bumble as I’m a little socially isolated and don’t feel up to dating. However as a man the app will only allow me to see and match with other men, which is a real bummer. I’m a gay trans man and have mostly only had female friends, and I find cishet men pretty intimidating. No idea what nonbinary people are meant to do - are they only allowed to be friends with other enbies? It really feels like this app was made with only straight cis people in mind, at least from my limited experience of it. Nice of you to give me a million words to describe my identity with, but if you can’t actually accomodate the way LGBT+ people socialise and live their lives, it’s not worth all that much..Version: 5.282.0

Don’t pay for subscriptionI’ve paid for the premium version, but it’s *definitely* not worth the money. Firstly, it doesn’t make any difference whatsoever to the number of matches that you get - if you’d like more matches, work on your profile. Secondly, you don’t get what you pay for - for example you’re supposed to get 1 spotlight and 5 SuperSwipes per week, but I don’t seem to get these and certainly they are not cumulative (this information is nowhere). I’ve contacted the support team to enquire, but so far (2 weeks later!) they don’t seem to care. If they see this review, I’m sure they will respond immediately. My advice to everyone out there: these people survive and can provide this dodgy service because of the subscriptions. If we stopped paying them money and use only the free version, they would certainly reconsider their practices and their app. And please don’t say “contact our support team” I’ve already done this - get your act together! Unless you are happy to refund the subscription (I certainly didn’t get what I paid for) there’s nothing to talk about. Poor service....Version: 5.226.0

User-friendly and safeWho likes dating apps? Not me, because it feels like I’m shopping for a person and putting myself on a market (which is really what dating apps are for, obviously). However, with the free version, you can send messages to matches (they have 24 hours to respond) and you have unlimited messages once you match. In addition, Bumble adapts. I actually like that they changed it to only allowing you to view/like a few people at a time — it helps keep you logging in, so you maybe won’t miss messages with/from matches. A downside to this change, though, is that I always have, like, 50 likes (most of them I won’t like back because we’re clearly incompatible in some way), and it’s going to take longer to make matches with those likes. But, anything good takes time… so, I guess that makes sense. Bumble is doing alright — with BFF (helpful when you’ve moved to a new state!) and with Date. If I’m going to pay for a dating app, I wouldn’t mind paying them to upgrade (versus others so far tried that like to limit everything you do until you pay for it, and limit to extreme lengths). If a free version says a lot about an app (which is generally true), the free version of this one is effective and user-friendly..Version: 5.298.0

Change colour of background pleaseHello Bumble admin, Please please change the recent colour change of text messages coming in! I honestly can hardly read them when the text is white in a caramel background!! Also, suggest regular trial offers of a weekend/24 free trial period of what is in offer if I pay... so many sites offer not much difference and I’m not willing to pay to them all till I know what I get fir my money. Let us try and see please..Version: 5.132.0

Waste of time✋I’m on bumble every day! I swipe right on everyone.... I get zero matches 😂 and if I’m lucky to get one match every 6 months they don’t talk✋ you need a revamp make it more worth it for woman to join bumble.Version: 3.13.0

Gender settings are nice, but a bit weird.This app is overall okay. I like that they have a lot of options on things you can add to your profile, but their monthly price is really high. $40 for basically one month, and $20 for a week, just so you can see people who have swiped on you or even to just filter things such as height preference. But what really gets me here, is the way they handle gender identity and how they categorize it. I’m a trans male, who’s interested in women, and I’ve had no problems in my past with dating women. But if I change my gender identity to “trans man” on this app and set my preference as “women” my feed is changed to nothing but other women who are interested in women, or people looking for “poly” relationships. I don’t think I’m quite what lesbians are looking for bumble? But once I set my gender back to “male” I’m brought back to women who are interested in men. So I have no choice but to just put “male” and then that I’m “trans” in my bio. So maybe something needs to be changed about that? Why should I feel that I’m less of a man on this app? I get that you try and pair “lgbtq+” with others in that same category, but make it make sense. If I say I’m “straight” I should only be seeing what my preference is. If others choose to not like me because I’m trans, let them make that decision..Version: 5.256.0

Fakes + Useless CS = Not Worth ItPrevious review seems to have gone … disappointing when you only get to read one side of the story. Bumble presents it’s fair share of fake profiles to the (male) user. Bg this I mean large numbers of Chinese girls that are ‘within 10k’ … they’re not. Plus people seeking insta likes and then direction to a card scam. Disappointing. Especially when reporting them leads to nothing. Bug I can of course ignore these things if I’m wise to them. What was most annoying was being locked out and trying to get back in over the following week … to no avail. Turns out id been blocked … no communication to this effect, found out by starting to register on a different phone. But in the week I’d contacted bumble on Twitter, Facebook and by email. None of which received a response. Bumble replied to the previous (missing) review asking me to contact customer services - all sounding apologetic, nice, helpful. Well I did this and not a word of response at all. My crime? I posted a pic of me clay shooting. Could have been football or fishing or dog walking … but in the absence of any abuse or anything dodgy … that’s all it was. No communication to say ‘we’ve done this…’ So no bumble, you’re not helpful or great … read recent reviews! *Edit* As requested by developer response - contacted on Twitter, Facebook and email. I’ve also requested my data. No response. Same as the past attempts! Fake users and fake customer service promises. Scam.Version: 5.228.0

Really bad app.When will they figure out how to make swiping work? Literally just scrolling very slowly and suddenly it likes a person. Or often the reason I’m scrolling is someone caught my eye and I want a closer look. Swiped no out of nowhere without swiping no! Horrible. When you’re at the end of a instagram feed and you try swiping to the next page it swipes no. They didn’t think that one through. You have to click the last pic then swipe the no aka left to see the next pics. Literally only Bumble has problems with the most basic part of a dating app that they all offer. Okay so don’t get me started on the actual purpose of the app; dating. That aspect is imbecilic, girls have to talk and wont. They’ll give out their details and you say so what happened? Oh I don’t check it when I match. Okay but you literally don’t understand the app. Useless app for that. My real complaint is purely as an app. It’s really bad. Name one other app where simply scrolling randomly changes to the next or previous page out of nowhere. It’s frustratingly broken. Even being super cautious. And for years now. If y’all can’t make the app work rewinding swipes should just be available for like/dislike. Like hey somehow we’re the only app that can’t get the basic function of scrolling to work literally the most important part. But we’ll sell you a very expensive bandaid to wrap around the glitch while hiding people to swipe on every 5 people for the day. Yeah weird advertisement guys..Version: 5.326.0

Total RubbishIf you read Bumble’s response to the reviews you will understand why this app has so many 1-Star reviews, and is known for being a joke. The founder of Bumble grew up in a problematic family where her father abused her mother (therefore developing psychological issues and traumas), then she worked in Tinder and stole their ideas, mixed the Tinder and her hatred of men and created Bumble. This means Bumble is to attract damaged women and feminists so they get the delusion that they are in charge by messaging guys first. What an absurd idea. If in a normal dating app where normal women were, a woman swiped right on a guy she would wanted to chat to him (otherwise why swiping right?!). Swiping right and then not wanting to chat is utter stupid. Regardless of these idiotic rules, women in bumble are all on Hinge, another cringy dating app, too. Instead of spending a year of your life swiping, go out and meet someone nice in person and make great friends along the way too..Version: 5.326.0

Website woesI’m really disappointed with this website. Unless you pay a subscription it’s slim pickings and men who are pictured aren’t suitable. It should be possible to access the men who like me without paying a subscription fee. It’s not a user friendly website Regards Cathy.Version: 5.357.1

Not safeThis app is garbage. As with any dating app the priority is not to help you find a connection it’s to keep you swiping. The difference with bumble is that it prides itself on women’s safety. That’s fundamentally not true, after a bad date experience I blocked someone, the app showed me this same man 3 times a day for three months, I blocked, I reported, I contacted them multiple times, only once did they reply where the gaslit me and said I should report someone errr I did?! And that they can’t stop users creating a new profile well there’s no way this man was creating the exact same profile multiple times in the space of 30 minutes. The app is predominantly in my experience filled with incels, married men and couples wanting a threesome as well as an inordinate amount of men who send dick pics. Again doesn’t matter if you report bumble does nothing. I’d suggest swerving this for your own safety. Update - was asked to get in touch via their Twitter, did that twice and was ignored just as I was ignored when I emailed their cs everyday to report dick pics/hate speech/incels.Version: 5.314.0

“Empowering women” that sucksI couldn’t stay without knowing how bad my profile was, i saw so many people saying girls have more chances in this app, i actually got depressed cuz of the low amount of likes i was getting per month (less than 10) I had to knew how true that was, so i went on a friend of mine’s ig profile (she’s a 7/10 tho) i took her pictures and made a SUPER SIMPLE profile on Bumble as a woman(with her permission btw), i made that 20 MINUTES AGO and I’m having +400 LIKES Must said that after 2 minutes swiping got a 24hrs UNLIMITED likes FOR FREE….. while you make boys pay for EVERYTHING “Empowering women” that is not empowering women dude, that’s giving undeserved privileges to literally every girl, you don’t even try to make them earn it while you don’t actually give us chances This is so disappointing Bumble, you let me down so bad, this app wasn’t made to date, THIS APP WAS MADE TO BRING MAN INTO DEPRESSION AND INSECURITIES To any brothers reading this: DONT DOWNLOAD THIS APP, WE ALL DESERVE BETTER THAN WHAT BUMBLE GIVES US.Version: 5.298.0

Kicked me outI had an account for 3 or 4 days, going perfectly until I woke up this morning and my accounts not there. It’s telling me to make a new one which I try do and when it gets to the end it says sorry you’re not 18- which I am and it worked on my first account. I can’t even contact support about it because they seem to have some rando email address for me.Version: 5.255.2

Canada East CoastSure Bumble is great in other parts of North America but in East Coast Canada , Halifax , Nova Scotia specifically don’t waste your time, just very few users and as a guy having to pay to message proactively only to realize there is little use in the region was a waste of $40.Version: 5.320.0

InaccessibleI like the concept of this app and was interested in trying it out. Sadly I got as far as downloding and registering only to find out it is not user friendly to the blind. I use Apple IPhonevoice over and this app is not compatible with the feature. Now have to try deregistering and uninstalling in order to go find another app. Suggest a conversation with Apple to make it accessible. Thanks and no please do not suggest I go on a dating app for the disabled..Version: 2.24.0

Gone Downhill Over the YearsI’ve been on and off Bumble for a few years now and it has really gone downhill over the years. First things first, Premium has gone up in price. I remember premium was like $20 a month or so, then it went to $30, $35, to now $50!!! It is way too overpriced and not really that beneficial, why would I want to pay $50 just to see who likes me only for them to to not talk to me, or they’re 50 miles away when I have my preference to 20 miles!! Also they say that premium profiles get shown more but I highly doubt it because I’m usually on the app everyday swiping, and have maybe only gotten one like within the span of about every two weeks!! Premium is not worth the $50, especially since it seems like a lot of women are only using the app to promote their Instagram/Onlyfans. I don’t think this is Bumble’s fault at all, but I can’t justify spending $50 just be targeted by someone who’s not looking for a relationship, and only looking for my credit card number. I think this is my last time using Bumble. It stinks because I have been successful in the past with matches and going on dates, but it seems that this app is just getting greedy and getting ruined by opportunists. If you want to go on dates and actually find something meaningful, go on Hinge or Coffee Meets Bagel, I’ve had better luck recently on those apps. Or, if you want to skip the hassle, just pay for eHarmony/Match..Version: 5.291.0

Could there be a messaging bug?I’m wondering whether there could be a bug in the messaging functionality? I’ve encountered a couple of situations where my match doesn’t respond to one of my messages and then, about a week later, they unmatch me. While the first reason one might think of that explains this is that I’ve said something that wasn’t appreciated, which I’m confident is not the case, or they’ve simply lost interest and moved on, which I hope isn’t the case. In either case, why would my match wait about a week before unmatching me, it’s almost as if they were waiting for something e.g. a reply from me? My most recent such experience was only two messages after the match, one message each within the first 24 hours of matching, and we were deciding on where to meet. I had suggested a location that I thought was convenient for my match as it was located in the same suburb that Bumble indicated she was located. I kept checking for messages in Bumble every couple of days for the week that followed in case the push notification related to her reply wasn’t received by my phone but she never replied and, about a week after I had replied, we were no longer matched. I wonder if she never received my reply or whether I never received her reply..Version: 3.27.1

Sexism at its finestProbably The most sexist dating or friend finding app available. If an app was open this way but in reverse for males having the all the power we would hear nothing but complaints and if not lawsuits. It is disgusting that in this modern day this sort of sexism is acceptable. No doubt a number of people will make the return comment of if you don’t like it then leave it well that goes the same in reverse for you but women that are complaining. Seems if you have it your way you’re happy Yes this is exactly what sexism is..Version: 3.29.0

Utter disgrace of an app and discounted now! Joke!Still using my old account even when I deleted it!!! I found this out from a friend who had joined and who told why questioned why I had multiple accounts. I said I didn’t I deleted it. My friend even showed me my delete account. I deleted that account 2 years ago. Bumble your a disgrace This app is becoming more and more deceptive to cheat you out of handing over your cash. Conversation I’ve had on her are very repetitive and give you a sense of sole-less feeling. It felt almost automated as if you was talking to a chat bot and not a really person. It would not surprise me that Bumble would do such a thing to impersonate a really human from a fake or deleted account. It needs regulation and monitoring to prove your human and that your data is not deceitfully used after you think you have deleted your account. Prove accounts are real Prove you delete accounts and data. No backups! Prove you don’t use Ai chat bots. Police fake/bot accounts and remove them Take a reality check Bumble are you real or are you fake I’m losing all trust in the internet. It’s becoming profit and lies. A manipulation of reality and a very dangerous, deceitful place for con artists to manifest and become total grotesque. Sad really.Version: 5.319.0

BUMBLE IS USELESSHad downloaded this app for the second time and this time i bought a week of this premium and literally only saw 1 person match. Im convinced 99% of people are bot / inactive accounts. Nobody uses this anymore. Negative stars if I could..Version: 5.329.0

Money grabbing appOnce you pay premium as well the amount criteria is very disappointing. And after the premium period is finished it shows you all the like that you received and in order to view those like buy premium again. I can not see any likes on my account and this makes me frustrated because I question my own ability to present myself.Version: 5.322.0

Dreadful customer serviceI subscribed to Boost because it was advertised as having unlimited backtracks on left swipes. Due to cognitive issues caused by chronic illness I frequently swipe the wrong way and want the option to undo them. Last week though I stopped being able to consistently backtrack, the backtrack arrow would just disappear at some point, whether after 1 backtrack, or 9. Clearly there was a fault. I contacted customer service and the first person to reply acknowledged this was a problem. The next people however are telling me that there isn’t an option to backtrack on left swipes! Except this is specifically sold as an option on both subscription options. The replies to my emails are so inconsistent, they seem to know nothing about their own app, or what they offer with their subscriptions, and the certainly aren’t reading the whole email thread. I’m getting absolutely nowhere and it reflects so badly on Bumble as a whole. It’s my favourite of the three dating apps I use, but I can’t see me wanting to keep it for much longer. This is the second time I’ve had to contact customer service and it was the same the first time, inconsistent replies that made me wonder if they even knew what Bumble was..Version: 5.235.0

Disappointing app literally stole my moneyI have been on Bumble for a long time as a premium account holder often times not even checking it for months but happy to have the roughly 13 dollars deducted from my account monthly. Upon reviewing invoices I noticed that the subscription price has increased on multiple occasions with no notification other than a direct debit (which is not really notifying me on the apps part) nor have I gone for a more expensive package or consented to being charged more. It went up to $33 and for the last 3-4 months has very sneakily charged me nearly 50 dollars!?! This is absolutely wrong and for a app that does so little to put you in contact with people, even when you are on premium. Disappointed is a understatement I am very angry and feel robbed. I doubt the developers will do anything to set this right but I advise people, steer well clear of this app. They are only tax collectors and have no interest helping you make connections. Developers you SHOULD be refunding me a few hundred dollars. You HAVE at least in my opinion conducted business illegally. DO NOT DOWNLOAD BUMBLE 1/10 beyond disappointed..Version: 5.232.0

Good ... but 24 hr expiring matches?!This was the first dating app I tried, as I liked the idea of a woman messaging first. I’m quite happy starting a convo, but I felt this might be a good platform to find the kind of confident, smart woman I am attracted to. After a year, I’m not certain that this holds up: most of the women using Bumble seem to have a profile on one of the other platforms anyway and I have had fewer matches turning into a conversation (let alone a date!) via Bumble compared with other apps. Generally, Bumble is easy to use and it works extremely smoothly (more so than rivals) and this would be a four-star review, but the 24 hr limit for each new match before someone speaks is really silly. Surely we’re all grown up enough to send a polite decline message (or at worst just delete manually) and don’t need Bumble to do it for us? If anything, I think this feature encourages people to treat others as disposable, more so than Tinder et al, just because you don’t have to go to the trouble of deleting an ill-considered match yourself and feeling bad for doing it ... just wait out the clock and the app does the dirty work. Also, I’ve been on lovely dates with women who didn’t get round to messaging me on Tinder or Hinge within 24 hours. Please ditch this feature, Bumble..Version: 5.182.0

Avoid this app.It’s a pay wall app. Swiping is free, everything else must be paid for. Yeah, the “support team” auto response, right?.Version: 5.245.1

Bumble BanSo Bumble definitely shadowbans or at least outright blocks you. I had Bumble for about 2 years straight. One of the women I met off there ended up stalking me and I deleted the account out of fear she would create fake profiles and try to monitor me. Needless to say I ended up moving for work and decided to make another account now that I felt safe. Within the first hour I had several likes, however, that stopped instantly after that. Nothing after that first hour (I live in a large metropolitan area so this is unusual). I’m also not an ugly guy by any means. It’s not difficult to see who likes your profile since bumble’s blurred image for your queue is easily distinguishable when swiping. I noticed that one particular like I had showed up in my stack and I didn’t swipe on it initially. I reopened the app later to see my likes disappear. HOWEVER, these profiles still showed up in the stack and they are unable to unlike your profile once they’ve swiped right. This happened with almost all of the likes I had and they weren’t bot profiles. I received no more likes since that first hour and I kept the app for a week and a half to make sure. Pretty pathetic I received whatever “ban” they clearly have in place simply because I deleted my account to protect myself. Not like I’m deleting and recreating the app every other week. Won’t be recommending or using (like I could anyway) this app again..Version: 5.233.0

Not awful, not goodThere are some issues with swiping. Very few people on bumble for friends… but it is certainly better than nothing and I have made quality connections so far. For users in travel mode, it would be nice to have a sorting/filter to facilitate conversation when back in the region. I find Bumble’s oversimplistic chat drives users to share FB or Insta and move away from Bumble, which is a bit odd given the incessant notifications for me to check messages (that aren’t there) and engage. The notifications, man, they’re endless. “Someone likes you!” And when you open the app it says “nobody in your area” and there’s no message. Just wants you to engage with the app nonstop..Version: 5.328.0

Fixing what’s not brokenI’ve used bumble for about 2 years now and have even managed to meet one of my ex girlfriends on there. Additionally, I think the fundamental aspect of having the woman strike up conversation first is a HUGE bonus, when you consider how unlikely it is for them to do so on other apps. HOWEVER, the company is going in a greedy direction, starting with two significant features: the amount of swipes and the reverse button (if you accidentally swiped left). In the last 6 months or so Bumble has significantly reduced your amount of swipes, which is of course a far more important issue for your average man than woman. Most of these other apps that I’ve used employ this feature of limited swipes, but Bumble used to give you so many more swipes (it might’ve been unlimited) nowadays I‘ll swipe on like 25 people before running out and having to wait a day? My matches have significantly dropped and it’s almost pointless to have this app because it’s just like all the other ones now. The aforementioned features are what made it different (and better!), but it seems like they want you to pay for them now, which is understandable (paying more for more services) but how does it differentiate from the myriad of other apps that have saturated the market? I don’t know. Personally, it’s not enough of an incentive to keep this spacious app on my phone..Version: 5.165.0

Bad Customer ServiceI was swiping on Bumble when a notification to be in the spotlight popped up on my phone. Not realizing it, I accidentally clicked on the package and tried to exit out. It was then that the payment screen came up and when I was trying to click the button to exit, it quickly accepted my fingerprint for payment. I quickly notified Bumble and got a generic response from “Mike” from the “Bumble Feedback Team” saying sorry it’s in the terms that we can’t refund your purchase. I emailed him back that I’m trying to pay for school and was recently laid off and I could really use the money. He quickly got back to me with the SAME EXACT generic email saying sorry it’s in the terms. It’s obvious that he doesn’t care and so I emailed him. I understand, but accidents happen. Please make the exception. He hasn’t emailed me back. Bumble is this how you train your employees? You pay them to send generic, careless emails to your users? You write in your email to please provide us with feedback as we’re always looking to improve. How about you go the extra mile with your customer service and show that you actually care about the service you are providing to the users and not just money grabbing. Keep employees like “Mike” from the “Bumble Feedback Team”! It’s clear he doesn’t have pride in the company he works for and the job that he does for you. Judging by the way you handle your customers, I can understand why..Version: 5.175.1

AccusedI downloaded the app and used it for several months only received one match (which is fine) and I only went on maybe once a week or so. Dated that match for a few months, so that was good, but about 5 months later I get a message that my profile is being moderated (under review because someone reported it). I messaged bumble and asked why and they said they couldn’t tell me and that decisions were final, I then asked for an apology for their allegations, I was told I wouldn’t recieve any. Here I am to tell my story in their review so future users can be aware of this nonsense..Version: 5.136.0

Too many notificationsBumble sends way too many notifications, mostly useless. I want a notification when I get a match and when I get a message-that is all. Sending me random notifications does not make me want to use bumble more than I usually would, it just annoys me and makes me want to delete it.Version: 5.202.0

Negative 10THIS IS JUST A WARNING FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SUBSCRIBE.. don’t waste your hard earned money.. on these pathetic imbeciles.. Pathetic … sexism at its best. I have tried to create a app numerous time, and for unknown reason they keep banning me. Now I would understand, if I was Gable Tostee, who killed someone through these apps. I could understand.. I can’t even create a profile.. so how are they thinking that I’m going to be an issue … Its also pathetic how they can take your money, to pay for a subscription, but yet they ban you as soon as your $$$ is debited from your account. ***This is not a rant that I can’t get on, personally I think “Hinge” is way better.. This is just a warning for people who pay for subscription … I bet you would be too gutless to post this on app store too.Version: 5.230.0

A JokeI have been using Bumble for YEARS and have never had any issues with the app itself. I am mid conversation with someone I am finally hitting it off with, and I go to open the app AFTER IT NOTIFIES ME THAT HE REPLIED, to find the screen that wants you to make an account. No big deal. Maybe a glitch. So I try to long back in using Apple and it is asking me to create a new account, implying the one I was using just moment before no longer exists. So I try to log in via phone number to find out I have been banned for "either buying or selling." Even after reading the User Agreement I have no idea what that means, all I know is that I've never tried to buy or sell a single thing in the, again, years, that I've been on this app. So I googled it to see what the issue was and everything I read stated there would be an email or some kind of warning that my account was being deleted/banned. I got neither. I very much understand and appreciate the safety measures put in place to ensure we're all in good hands using dating platforms like this, but I personally think that this was ridiculous. Now, not only do I not get to move forward with someone I was hitting it off with 2 seconds before I no longer had an account, but I was also PAYING A SUBSCRIPTION that I won't be getting my money back for. And this isn't even something I can appeal. What a disappointment and what turns out to be a waste of my money over the years..Version: 5.308.0

Feel UnsafeThere’s an individual on here who does work in my neighborhood and has come onto me in a way that made me highly uncomfortable. He leers at me every time he’s around. I have blocked him on bumble only to see he has popped up since I blocked him about 7 more times!!!!!!! In addition to this, in June I sent a Twitter DM to inquire about the free boost trial. They told me they were having issues with boost and they would manually apply it to my account. I had about 1,000 profiles to scroll through and I had gotten through about 25 and without changing any preferences, while I was in the middle of looking at the bumble Match Queue, my ENTIRE queue disappeared! There were a few accounts I saved to look at better later and hundreds I hadn’t even seen that disappeared in a flash. I wrote them on Twitter and the bumble rep was less than helpful and it got to the point where they were just rude. Later I told them I wanted the boost removed from my account completely but was told they cannot do that. Since the time Boost was manually applied by them it rendered that whole match queue area useless. The trial has expired; it never worked anyway, but now even the blurred out profiles are gone. I’ll have guys who “super like” me that don’t show up in the queue as blurred out profiles. Bumble used to be a good app. The boost thing was just an annoyance but now that I feel unsafe with the block feature not working, I had to write a review and disable my account..Version: 2.30.0

App works fine, but…I’ve been using Bumble premium for years now. I’m only leaving this review because something fascinating happened when I cancelled my subscription. I’ve never had many likes at all over the entire 2-3 years using Bumble. Now, on the day my subscription ended, I had 32 likes… then, as soon as premium turned off, that number jumped up, displaying “50+” within an hour. Now that I’m not a premium member, I can’t see who they are and was prompted to pay to do so. So as a paying member, I got near to nothing over the course of 2-3 years… and then suddenly, when my payments stopped, I got more than 50% of all the likes I’ve ever had in the space of just an hour or two. So what’s happened here? Are these fake profiles designed to insta-like accounts that cancel subscriptions? Was Bumble holding back accounts that had actually liked mine? I don’t see any other logical options..Version: 5.295.0

Blocked for no reason - 0 star for meI have used this app for only 1 week and was talking to few people and i even paid for a weekly boost then cancelled my subscription right after, 2 days later i was BLOCKED saying that i have a fake profile even though all my pictures were clear! Just because i didn’t want to meet a guy or 2 that didn’t catch my attention and they were pathetic about it and decided to report me, doesn’t mean i have a fake profile! I have contacted the support team who said they investigated this thoroughly (which i think they didn’t) and thought was issued correctly, they said i have breached the Bumble guidelines haha. I’m pretty confident i didn’t nor i had the time to breach any as i barely used it. Don’t use this app nor pay for any subscriptions as it is the worst app ever and they are only after the money!.Version: 5.248.0

Girls clearly miss the point of this appNot trying to sound like a mad man or anything like that but, ladies... y’all know the point of Bumble is that YOU make the first move? Why am I still seeing bios that have “msg me first cuz I’m ‘too shy’”? If you’re “too shy” to message first, why are you still using an app that clearly states at the beginning of your account creation and upon matching that you, the girl, have to make the first move? Deactivate your account and download Tinder, Hinge or something that doesn’t require the girls to make the first move 😂 also, this is specifically for the Bumble devs, quit sending me notifications talkin bout “In the matter of seconds...” blah blah “someone likes you, open the app to see who” or whatever and when I open the app, there’s literally nothing in the Beeline 😐 don’t give us that false info/hope. Don’t lie in your push notifications. Lastly, y’all shoulda kept the rollbacks free of charge. Not to mention the amount of money you have set for your subscriptions are outrageous. 20 dollars for a week?? Almost 40 dollars for ONE month? Seriously!? Take a page out of Tinder’s book and make one month worth 20 dollars or something 💀 You can do better than this, Bumble. You should also consider allowing men to have some free chats to upon matching to relieve these “shy” girls from having to message first..Version: 5.196.0

There’s better dating apps.I’ve given it 2 stars because of how easy the app is to use, now the downfalls : - The quality when uploaded completely ruins the photo by giving it a poor grainy contrast. With the modern technology you would think such an app wouldn’t have issues adjusting the photo size so the quality is still there. - I’ve had more matches in a day on other dating sites than I’ve had 2 months on this app. The conversations normally just fall flat because of the convenience of easily swiping right. So men can rapid like multiple females without even taking a look at the profile. - they don’t allow you to hit back even if you accidentally said no. 90% of other dating apps give you at least 2-3 chances to go back until you’re no longer allowed. Very frustrating. - there’s no options for not knowing if you even want children, you either want them or you have them. It’s 2021 guys. - the pricing they’re asking people to pay isn’t even worth it. There is no benefit to you or the people you’re talking to. - you either get the option of looking out 160km away or the entire country. No in between, and without even using the data it has on your location is will recommend people that are thousands of km away. Would be nice to have the choice of provinces or expanding the search area..Version: 5.202.0

The solution to dating apps (please read and hear me out)I’ve seen a lot of videos on dating apps and I feel like there’s a lot of downsides to using this app and I think it’s clear why these apps are not working as planned. The act of socializing is not locked in like how it’s like in work spaces and it’s clear people are very shallow with who they speak to. One solution I see is to give penalties and time out people that actively ghost people they match. This will encourage more interaction with the app than to keep scrolling till you find your idea imaginary person(THIS GOES FOR EVERY DATING APPS). My next solution! Favor people that actually want to a relationship/ something serious! These dating apps are becoming another game apps for hook ups for the majority while other want to find a life time partner. It defeats the purpose of the apps entirely. It’s just a game of looks and value. That’s not how it should work. My last solution! these are big app but can’t encourage or host singles event to promote the apps cause the dating apps are just to give you wishful thoughts. Events like these can break a social barrier that not everyone gets a chance go through cause you make it so easy for other to ignore what they could actually have with high value people that uses the app just to find a quick trill. Maybe these solutions can actually make dating apps better but I’m just a guy that haven’t gotten a actual match since I downloaded it.Version: 5.341.0

Could Be BetterThe advanced filters say they narrow your search but in reality they work like inductive searches rather than reductive and narrowing, which is really frustrating and a terrible oversight. I’d like Bumble to realise this and to fix it to have the option to “exclude” people from my stack based on particular attributes, for example, not wanting to date people that identify as atheist or who are smokers. The current filters work by selecting positive attributes you want to see in a partner but it’s pretty useless because I’d say most people don’t put positive features about themselves on their profile for privacy reasons, and the filter ends up excluding those people as options by accident. Please fix Bumble..Version: 5.341.0

Its BrokenThis app will show you that someone has matched you, like i registered on this app last night and overnight i got 32 right swipes. And when i get to swipe left or right, none matches, none also shows that i missed a girl when i swipe left. My question is where are those 32 ladies of mine. :).Version: 5.329.0

Good and the bad!!Good dating app been using it for years, till I couldn’t log in when says continue with Facebook. I have messaged them on the support site that they said to message too which is like Facebook and even on there page as well but still haven’t had anyone get back to me which is annoying, frustrating and just poorly how they can’t get back to me at all this is way I’m putting a 1 star rating now for this!! all I wanna know is why I can’t log back into it?? This is what I said: Hi there, I can’t login in on your app when it says continue with Facebook when I do that it goes in to the page log in with Facebook then I go continue then it loads then goes back to the start again I have try this about 3 times now I even deleted the app and downloading it again still having the same problem. That’s what my do then goes back to the start again when I’m trying to log in with my Facebook!!.Version: 5.185.0

Fakes or girls looking to promoteI’ve come across a few fake profiles and lots of girls just promoting their other social medias and or looking for people to subscribe to OF or other services, not very many genuine conversations or meet ups.Version: 5.317.0

Superswipe needs fixingReally need to fix the superswipe function/placement, as it’s much too easy to accidentally superswipe on someone. You’re shown a new person, you’re just scrolling up their profile with your right thumb say and out of nowhere you’ve tapped superswipe at bottom right and now you’ve not only lost their profile (and can’t get it back), you’ve given someone the wrong impression you really like them when you haven’t even had the chance to read anything about them. Also if you only drink or smoke a little, why is “socially” the nearest option? Not everyone does things to be “social” - there should be an “occasional” option for things like that. Finally, even though you can filter people by distance, you can still get seen/liked by people well outside your distance range… it’s not much use if my limit is 10 miles and I get a like from someone 100 miles away. Apart from that, it’s an ok dating app..Version: 5.355.0

WARNING TO MEN: Don't use this appDating apps in general are not good for men, but this one, Bumble, will make you feel broken, unworthy, and unloveable to a whole new level. If you want your self-esteem and confidence to take an enormous hit, then go ahead and download this app. Also, don't listen to a word that the developers may say about this app. It's designed to make money and that's it..Version: 5.315.0

FilterWe should be able to use a filter to narrow down results. For example if I don’t want anyone who drinks or smokes I’d like to see only those people. Id also like to filter by ethnicity..Version: 3.6.0

RelationshipI am looking for a long term relationship. It is difficult for me on this app when I can only filter people with advanced filters from the subscription. Without it I spend a long time going through so many people and I don’t think it is worth as much as it costs to do so. I have been on other apps where this is also free. It is also upsetting when bumble members do not have an answer to what they’re looking for also. I wish it could be easier to find like minded people, so I can better find my match. I have had a lot of unhappy experiences because of this. I also would appreciate having verified profiles required for all members. It just makes sense to do so..Version: 5.312.0

Not useable WASTE OF TIME KEEP OFFDownloaded the app tried paying but the app keeps on hanging up and not functioning ! The app found a match that I had not swapped and was the only match I could see! PLEASE DO’NT FORCE MATCH PEOPLE🥴 😵‍💫😵‍💫😵‍💫😵‍💫🥴🥴 I got over 100 likes in less than 12 hours but I can not see who they are as app does not accept payments! Poor souls I wish you all the best in your search but may be using another app may help you because this one is dysfunctional! I understand that women have to send messages first which is not my thing but I tried and I could not send any message anyway 🙄 because the app doesn’t accept payments!! It is just a horrible app what a waste of time ! I switched my phone off and on again numerous times when it hanged and tried to pay again and again but nothing worked! This app needs some servicing it functions like an old broken truck that has no use ! Or may be crushing and shutting it down would be the best move for its customers!.Version: 5.266.1

Archive the conversation?This whole “archive or continue the conversation” thing is really dumb. What does it matter to you if we stopped talking for a few days?! Mind your own business and leave my conversations alone!.Version: 5.142.0

Great if you want stalkers??I would have rated this app more highly if it wasn’t for one HUGE flaw, the location, why on earth does your profile need to show your exact location at all times? What purpose does this serve apart from making stalking much easier?! I live in a tiny village and it actually says my current location is in this village, that really freaked me out so I changed where I live to a nearby town and then realised it made no difference because it still public ally tells people my current location is in this tiny village, won’t take people long to twig this is where I’m living or staying which is a big safety concern in my opinion, I drove to a nearby town and turned off my location for the app which changed my ‘current location’ to that town however when I got home I realised you won’t allow people to use the app unless location is switched on, again I do not understand what purpose this serves other than allowing men to stalk you, for an app made predominantly for females it’s quite shocking?!? - Bumble, will you remove this unnecessary feature? Otherwise I will be deleting this app as it’s too unnerving..Version: 5.167.1

Can be good, but it’s not for everyone.In my past experiences with this app, I’ve met a handful of people, and most of my dates. The key thing to getting a decent amount of matches is great pics and a great bio (traditionally known). Although, it may still be hard to get even one match because people commonly have busy lives, hence don’t check their Bumble. Others just won’t care and will ghost you. But, who am I to judge? I personally prefer to meet people in person, as it’s the old fashioned way. I believe Bumble is one of the best, if not the best app to meet new people. I’ve personally had numerous accounts with Bumble after deleting and reinstalling it SO many times. One thing that discourages me is that there can be so many attractive people in your area but not only is it possible to not have likes, but just to get noticed I feel like you have to buy spotlight. I definitely feel like it’s way easier for women to get matches compared to men, but I may also be wrong. Unless you are an EXPERT with patience, and you only have an interaction here and there, I think it’s best to meet people in person. I know we live in a digital world, but still don’t believe dating apps are for everyone. My advice, try the app. If it bears good fruit, God bless. If it doesn’t, stay away..Version: 5.219.0

LikesThere is not much explanation about running out of likes wait you’re not a premium. Also it’s not very clear what you get when you pay. Are there different packages with different things in it or you have full access to everything in all of them? I run out of likes without knowing that there was a limit..Version: 5.254.0

App lies to your faceThe app literally gave me a notification saying someone liked me and of course i check and theres no like. Done that more than once.Version: 5.208.0

Avoid scammersSo after a long time been off dating sites and paid for few of them i got back on bumble and didn’t pay at the beginning because i wanted to try the free version and sadly i had no lick although there is two girls like me which I cannot see until i pay for the app so I decided to give it a chance and pay for the app and honestly it was the worst decision. First there is nothing to swipe back if you swiped right or left by mistake. Second the spotlight which boost your profile so more girls will see that didn’t work as well nor spending more time to swipe right on girls you like working. Am not going to say i look 10 out of 10 but at least am 5-6 out of 10 which that make me wonder how there is no matches at all and the two girls i matched with them i extended the match and they unmatched me at the same time. Honestly don't waste your money on bumble and read reviews from genuine people because i work in computers field and i know how they do the reviews from robots its not actually people writing reviews also check the names some of them are weird names that they put to make the app reviews good anyone reading this trust me don’t pay for bumble its just scams and they make you like dairy cow take your money and you don’t get anything. And like usual automated comments going to comment here saying or contact our customers support which they will not respond nor do anything thats how we are making these people rich.Version: 5.253.0

Cannot access AppI’ve been unable to access the app after paying for a premium membership, won’t sign me in with Apple or cell number, tried troubleshooting tips but to no avail, contacted customer support over a week ago and no response…not happy at this stage!.Version: 5.272.0

Useless unless you payI’ve had this app for a few weeks and get no where. I’ll be lucky if I get 2 matches a week and then that’s as far as it ever goes. At first I thought “I guess I’m not that appealing” but then I noticed the boost button which allows you to see who has liked you to begin with and it turns out I have quite a few likes and of course there’s a catch. You have to pay for their extortionate weekly subscription to access it at all. I wasn’t doing that so I thought I’ll just grind the swipes until one shows. Literally like 200 swipes later and not a single match yet I’ve apparently got plenty banked up. So either they’ve locked me out until I splash my cash or it’s a lie and they’re trying to entice me to pay. Either way, all they want is your money and it seems there’s no point me using this app anymore. It just doesn’t work for me unless I pay. Good thing I’m not insecure, can only imagine how demoralising this would be for those that never get matched. Terrible dating service..Version: 3.23.1

Bumble BFF is a hit and missSo I’ve been on Bumble BFF for a year and a bit, and I’ve met some wonderful girls and also made some friends for life. However, it’s annoying, not everyone on their is genuine, not everyone on their is on there for the right reasons, you don’t always get responses or you do and they never reply for a while, or you match with someone or quite a few but nothing comes off it! It’s like the time I met those bunch of girls was probably the perfect time because after that, it was really slow and barely any action or interaction from the app in general. I think bumble needs to be real about the experience and explain that it’s not 100% amazing. It is a bit like having that app on your phone that you click in from time to time, slightly useless existence. I would say if you have time on your hands and your not really focused on it or not bothered then it would probably suit your needs. I have deleted the app on a few occasions and the installed it again purely because I had met a few girls so thought it might not be bad and might be a better experience but it wasn’t like that at all..Version: 3.36.0

If you have any problems, you won’t get help.If I could give this 0 stars (or less) I would! It looks great on paper, until you have a problem. I had been having problems with the amount of likes I was getting from the free membership. I was getting about 10-20 likes every week or more. I went 2 months one time checking every week and didn’t have liked for that whole time. I put in a ticket to ask how many likes I should have and explained the situation. They responded saying I should have 30 likes per 24 hours and that I’ve used mine for today (it had been a week since I had any likes). I then tried to explain again and was ghosted. For a couple weeks I was trying to get in touch with them about my ticket with no response. I then opened another ticket to ask for help again. They didn’t even acknowledge this one. Today (about 2 months later) I got an email saying they hadn’t heard from me so they were closing me ticket… I responded saying that they should have heard from me in this ticket AND another one. I had deleted my app at this point due to the frustration and sour taste left because of support. They then sent an automatic response email, which made it even more obvious they never read my email today OR any of the emails before. The two emails I have from them were the same exact automatic response emails and it didn’t answer either of my emails in any sort of way..Version: 5.300.0

Not impressedFirstly, this is quite a good app and had been using it for a while however, not long after I’d stumped up the money for bumble boost I had some issues logging in. (Customer service is non existent). When I finally got a reply from their feedback email I was told that my account had been blocked and I could no longer log in. This email was quite obviously a templates reply, considering how long it took is quite a surprise. The reason for my blocking was because ‘after an investigation and much consideration’ they had found I had broken the guidelines. Having popped back to have a look at these guidelines which are rather vague I was still none the wiser. At this point I might add that I am always 100% respectful in the chats with whomever I match with. So this is not their reason why. The customer service email ended with ‘our decision about your profile cannot be changed and no exceptions will be made’. To top it off I can start another profile and drop another £80 on it if I like. Therefore leading me to the conclusion that the guidelines are in fact a way of them blocking profiles so they can then get you to spend more money. I have been robbed don’t do it.Version: 5.126.0

Banned with no explanation and no customer serviceWrote the following review months ago, still not heard back from Bumble. Disgusting service. “I would give zero stars if it were possible. I re-downloaded Bumble the other week after a relationship didn’t work out. I had one match I was talking to and was just a nice general chit-chat. Go on to the app the next day and I’m apparently blocked. I had done absolutely nothing wrong and my profile wasn’t the least bit offensive. Contacted Bumble for some clarity to find out what has happened and no response. Poor service. Bumble should give people an opportunity to defend themselves in case of any reports as opposed to a straight up block with zero explanation. The developer said I should contact customer service, I’ve done that 5 times now and never had a response. They claim they will try to get back within 24-48 hours, well it’s been closer to 24-48 days now and no response. Shocking. Even contacted on Twitter and Instagram and still no response. It would be nice to get one as opposed to the developer simply stating “please contact support”. I have and they’re clearly useless.”.Version: 5.338.0

Fun but unstable and non specificThe app is good but highly unstable and lacks consistent performance. It crashes regularly when chatting and fails to display pictures completely; it starts to load a pic then stops leaving the user w a blurry image. Skipping this match doesn’t ensure the next one is working correctly. The profile section doesn’t require much content to begin posting so there’s some very thin profiles, time wasters. The lack of specific geographical locations in a big metropolis is a negative, I’m not keen on long distance. Matches only with a narrow age band are limiting as well. The fact that woman have to accept your interest is unique and should ensure only interested matches are contacting me (a male), a bit like fishing and hoping they take the bait. Not sure about that, can’t write to share my thoughts until they accept..Version: 5.132.0

Do not purchase!!!This app is run by criminals. Who knew a simple mistake in making purchases could cost me $50 because of a terrible refund policy! You should all be ashamed of scamming people out of their hard earned money with your horribly designed app. I’m being PUNISHED because of their greed..Version: 3.2.0

These basic features will fix BumbleBumble needs to clearly state how many right-swipes a user has left before they run out. This number should be 30, no less. When the user runs out, Bumble needs to display a visible timer for when they get their 30 right-swipes back. Bumble needs to have an option to totally omit profiles outside of the user’s distance preference. If the user does not want to see people from overseas, they shouldn’t have to..Version: 5.340.0

AppI spent a lot of time checking apps and I have to say this is so far quiet impressive but it has let me down with the traveling option which is good but it’s expensive especially when your paying for a subscription it would be appreciated that this option should be free and have the ability to have spotlights moving forward if you have a standard premium it would make sense to pay seperate but if paying an amount then you pay for spot lights it works out far more expensive and it seems it’s just easier walking outside and getting to know people I’d give this app a 5 star has there been a easy cheaper option and there was changes firstly being able to message people would be an option like maybe send them a private message but only if your a member to bumble if your not then you can’t if your a member then you should have a private message option Travel mode Maybe the spot lights could be brought seperatly then if these things were to be added but at a reduced cost maybe do £10- for 6 spot lights it might make people think about spending more.Version: 5.185.0

Misleading!I upgraded so I was able to see people who liked me first and mutual likes only to be unable to do EITHER! I emailed the help site but received no reply. I paid for a three month subscription that I sincerely hope I can manage to cancel before it renews. Particularly disappointed in this app and lack of help from the Bumble team..Version: 5.260.0

Bumble is like the cancer industryBumble thrives on the loneliness of people and if they genuinely cared about match making and did so properly, they’d eventually not have as many paying users. Therefore, it’s in their best interest to actually stifle your success at finding someone. With that said, they have a plethora of paid tiers all aimed at getting you SLIGHTLY closer at meeting someone, but there’s also some other service you gotta buy: boosting your profile, unlimited swipes, leaving complements, etc. One night I wanna a bet with a friend and had some extra cash and decided to give bumble premium a try. I thought that with the ability to swipe unlimited, for SURE I’d make a good number of connections—WRONG. At one point it got so ridiculous, I stopped reading profiles and just mindlessly swiped just to test my theory that their algorithms were actually geared towards preventing me matching with people. Unsurprisingly, even after quite possibly HUNDREDS of swipes, I got maybe 2 matched, no lie. Either I’m that ugly of a dude (which I don’t think so since I match reasonably well on other apps) or they’re putting me in some kind of queue that, unless you pay for their “boosting” service, you won’t be seen ever. Don’t buy premium, in fact don’t pay for anything on this app, it’ll be a waste of your money. I won’t be buying premium again, stupidest waste of money..Version: 5.316.0

Don’t botherFirst time using bumble in Australia and hoped it was better than where I was before - fake profiles, customer service that doesn’t care, pushing you for money. Sure enough out of the gate the amount likes you get on the free is ridiculously low. Constant ads pushing you to purchase premium and such and “see who likes you”. I thought I’d do the premium for one week to see if it’s better. It’s not. The “likes” you get are horrific profiles. Think a lot are out of date as well. Got a mutual like from a profile that didn’t look terrible - it was a scammer. Had to report. Match with another profile - this one seems genuine despite a weird message. They was but the convo dries up with no effort on their part for anything interesting. Even with premium you can’t use all the features and they push you to purchase more. The “speed dating” thing was a waste of time. Don’t even get the matches through there. Even in a massive city and generous filters I’ve “run out” of people around me several times. Don’t waste your money. Don’t bother. No one is taking this app seriously and the developers just want your money..Version: 5.326.0

So disappointingThis is the second time I’ve had this app. I’ve had it for several weeks, and I’ve swiped over one hundred people, and not had a single match. It could be me, it could be my profile, but it could be the way the app actually works. I suspect the expiration on matches puts pressure on women that makes them even more reluctant to match with people. In principle, I don’t mind the concept of the app, but in practice it’s not working, at least not for me. As well as this, I have no access to analytics, so I don’t know how many times my profile has been seen: if I knew, for instance, that I’ve been passed over 100 times, then I could definitely say it’s me, and my profile. But if it’s only because I’m the 1000th guy in the queue, I’m probably not going to have any success at all. The first time I had this app last year I managed to get three matches (hallelujah), and would you believe... none of my matches initiated a conversation, and the matches expired. If you want a pointless, disappointing experience, then this could well be the app for you..Version: 5.182.0

Awful Customer Service Scam SubscriptionsI have been a Bumble user for quite sometime now. The site is decent aside from the forced pop-ups asking for contributions and “social causes.” I recently was looking into a subscription for the site and had the incorrect one applied to my account. My first inquiry for assistance was closed without any response and when I tried to follow up they said the matter was resolved and they wouldn’t response to my email. When I opened a second case, although I shouldn’t have had to in the first place, I received a general response with absolutely no details or personal reflection of my inquiry simply telling me I can purchase the additional subscription for the additional cost, which wasn’t even what I was inquiring about in the first place. You’d think for a site that prides itself on its users and highlights a CEO who makes billions of the site, the customer service would be somewhat adequate to answer the concerns of the users in a timely manner. However that is far from the reality of this app and it’s customer service. Would highly recommend staying away from this app and using one of the competitors, they are better sites anyway. I hope one of the employees reaches out to me in regards to this review, but all we know that will never actually happen. My subscription will be my last and I have already cancelled any further charges associated with this app. Would recommend anyone else who uses it to do the same..Version: 5.245.1

Absolutely disgusting.I am going to ask out women in-person, start a family, and live a satisfying and a respectful life..Version: 5.320.0

Poor user interfaceIt’s far too easy to accidentally swipe instead of scrolling. I’m trying to scroll up and down, and *boom*, I’ve swiped left without meaning to, and that profile is gone forever. Of course, this is in their interest, so they can charge you to rewind. Not cool. Also, in the message pane, looking at the profile again (the only way you can actually see a profile) means you often get the keyboard popping up in front, which is a serious bug. Overall, I’m not terribly impressed with the UI. Update: I have lost several great matches because they don’t login every single day. The app only gives ladies 24 hours to “make the first move”, and men are powerless to contact them, as per the design. This is despite having matched, implying they “liked” my profile. You can extend the 24-hour deadline once per day, but if you forget to login and do this, the match vanishes. We all lead busy lives, and maybe don’t have a chance to login all the time. If this is the case for you, avoid this app. There are better options. I’d rather know I’m not missing the woman of my dreams because of poor technical design..Version: 5.347.0

Equality? What do u mean, there is notEquality is empowering women to make the first move? This whole sentence is wrong. That is not equality. I had this app for many months. I got one date, 2 weeks before I said enough. For me is an app for people to hook up, nothing about finding love or anything special. The premium service doesn’t make any difference. I found it hilarious that the majority of my matches were divorced woman 35 km + away from me, plus 3 kids, and nothing alike to any affinity or any similar interests. Seriously I thought wow really ridiculously hilarious. I mean even more funny is that I stay for so long in this app. Money, looks and u got urself a date. It really depict everyone in Sydney simple minded, obtuse, with little or no taste, fairly depressing and with little interest to find love.Version: 5.305.0

What a money scamSo they are not helpful at all behind the scenes, but reply here to make it seem like they give a hoot. They were never interested in assistance or answering my queries, just wanted to me to join again to rip us off once more. You write to communicate with admin you which I have f done but you keep replying with same generic robotic like non helpful reply. Ripping people off. As soon as my paid subscription ends, suddenly I have all these likes waiting for me. Nothing at all whilst subscribed, then once again when subscription ends likes waiting for me which they always hide till you pay again. Why would you offer this service then block us from likes until we pay? Absolutely a scam, can’t wait to hear from developers to explain..Version: 5.303.0

MehSo many woman just using this for Instagram followers.Version: 5.196.0

Used to be BetterI’ve been using bumble on and off for about 2 1/2 years now, and when I first got it I really enjoyed using it: a reasonable number of matches, it had more serious people, the fact that women go first was novel and made it feel like a more balanced dating space, and useful prompt questions and info in the bios made it easier to gauge personality than on other apps. However, after moving to a new city I’ve started having some problems. I know that I can’t blame the app for people not swiping on me, but I’ve gone from one or two matches per week and several people in the like queue (the standard case for my entire previous history of my usage of the app) to literally no matches or likes in over a month. I’ve tried deleting the app, re-logging in and out and resetting distance settings in case it was a technical glitch here, but nothing has improved it. I’m now getting the impression that it’s not me, but rather that because Bumble has started to “hide” or throttle accounts that haven’t paid for premium. Because of this, the app is no longer fun and a good way of finding people, but rather just a zero sum game where I now feel like there’s no point. A shame..Version: 5.133.0

Bumble is a ‘bot’ scamI was on bumble for few months. When I signed up, there were a few matches instantly that disappeared once I paid to see them. This is how they get you ‘in’. Then I had to pay for sending compliments or super likes. Many matches happen but there will be no responses to my texts. If I send a compliment to someone, there will be an unrelated response such as a scripted one or non contextual (that is usually sent by a bot). Months of swiping but no chances to meet a real human! Stay away from Bumble and don’t get scammed by an app!.Version: 5.336.0

Stupid rules ruins everythingSo I joined bumble last week thinking it will be better than other apps, so far my experience is more negative than positive.. 2 main reasons 1. Even after getting a match, you can't chat with her unless she sends a message first, and you only get 24+24 so 48 hours in total, if she doesn't send a message in that time limit she is gone for good.. so whats the use getting a match if the match doesn't open bumble for few days? Even if she liked me she will never know i liked her back and will have never have a chance to getting to know each other at all.. at least don't put a time limit for replies, thats plainly stupid rule. 2. I put a nice video of me petting my roommates cat, Got a message that this video is harmful for the site, still didn't understand what exactly a guy petting a cat is harmful for anyone? Then today I again put a nice video of beach near my house and again got the same message, seriously bumble team???? Get your heads out of where sun doesn't shine and do something about these stupidity cause I have 3 more weeks subscription left but for sure if these rules not gone by then I for sure am deleting this app for good.Version: 5.284.1

Men be warnedShame on you Bumble Team For genuine people who are trying to find “the one” bumble purposely make it impossible for decent gents to find a match through your money grabbing algorithms or shadow-banning matches when you subscribe. I read through the reviews after I suspected that my matches were not appearing on the app. As when my last subscription expired, the next day I suddenly had 11 matches. 11 matches in less than 8hours seems a little bit suspicious to me, so after reading MojillaDani’s review about being shadow-banned/not seeing his matches because his subscription was due to expire, I figured I’d put this to the test. Sure enough, I saw all the matches that had swiped on me in my weeks subscription clear as day, but only after I had renewed for another week. Another week has gone by, my subscription ended on March 5th and sure enough, the next day I had matches waiting for me that I had no idea existed. I don’t know how you sleep at night exploiting people this way, not even tinder was this bad. Spend your hard earned money elsewhere lads, we are being ripped off. (FYI don’t come back at me with lies about “how this shouldn’t happen on the app” (my filter settings were off, I deleted and reinstalled the app, so there’s no excuse) “well look in to it” because you won’t..Version: 5.253.0

They’re breaking the cardinal rule of dating: women should not message firstIf you read the dating book The Rules Handbook: A Guide to Creating Loving and Lasting Relationships you will see the authors tell women who are looking for marriage to never message a guy first because that shows interest first and if a man doesn’t message you first then he isn’t interested and will go along with the relationship until he gets bored and his dream girl comes along that he will actually pursue. The authors even say that women must avoid Bumble for this reason. So Bumble, please allow men to message women first and allow the dating world to work properly instead of falling into new age feminism of the woman taking control. Women who message and go after men will be 31 and single like me. I used to be a woman who messaged first and chased and approached and would shoot my shot, but I’m still single and now I’m just older. Women who are serious about finding a husband (men and women on apps statistically want a committed relationship and not casual sex) will never find one with the way it’s set up now. Messaging a man first is the quickest way for a man to use you for sex and never commit or commit because you’re “good enough” and the second option when the woman he pursued and really wanted didn’t like him. Take it from me, a single 31-year-old woman with 16 years of dating experience..Version: 5.344.0

Updates deletes all matchesTwice I have been prompted to update the app and after doing so all matches and conversations were gone. They have the worst customer service team who do not read your emails properly and refuse to acknowledge there’s a glitch. They just keep sending the same standardised, patronising reply, saying ‘unfortunately you were unmatched. Don’t worry, there’s plenty more out there. Happy bumbling’. When you’re on the app in the middle of the night and see 9 matches, do a quick update and go straight back in and all 9 have disappeared..I highly doubt they were all awake at this time and unmatched me at the exact same second in time!! I was just in the middle of arranging a date and now the app is forcing another update...Version: 3.32.0

Wish I could give zero starsThis is a terrible app. You can’t see profiles more than once. Seems to be more fake accounts on here than anywhere. Signed up for 1 month 2 weeks ago and unsubscribing right now. There is literally nothing I like about this app. Every match I make is either a coward or a fake profile who deletes their profile and reappears as a “new user” as soon as you mention actually meeting in person. Don’t use this app. Wish I could get my money back.Version: 5.329.1

Don’t like itI don’t know how they play with algorithms but the matches I have are from different location. So annoying, you pay for the service and they probably put you back in the queue. And the matches r from location where I’ve been like two, three days ago. Bumble was ok, but now it’s like a randomiser with less chances u can have a match. Fix that !!!.Version: 5.310.0

Greedy and insulting to their usersTelling me I missed a match when I swiped left on somebody that I’m not interested in is rude. If I am not interested in somebody, I do not change my mind simply on the fact that they’re interested in me. That’s not a healthy way to start a relationship, and it’s an obvious attempt at a cash grab for Bumble. That's not a feature that helps any user, because the info isn’t offered until after you’ve already swiped left, at which point you have to pay if you wanted to take advantage of the feature. Either they believe you should be with somebody just because they like you even if the feeling isn’t mutual, or even more likely, is they don’t really care about being a platform to make positive relationships and they just want your money. Stop insulting our intelligence Bumble Update: now bumble has a feature where they take your most attractive potential matches (people who already swiped right on you) and show you that they’re your potential matches, but they don’t let you swipe right on them without paying money. Worse than that however, these greedy mfers put those potential matches I’m assuming all the way in the back of the people you’d swipe through normally, so you won’t come across them, and if you want the match you have to pay. Shame on you bumble, this is why you’re losing. You prey on your customers emotions, going as far as making better matches more difficult, in order to leverage more money out of the customer..Version: 5.336.0

Reverse powerIf this app is designed to empower women, do they need to pay for subscription ? If not, why are the men paying $50+ per month for hardly any matches. Even if you do match and she doesn’t send message first then the match is gone. What a scam..!!! men should not have to pay for subscription if it up to the women to make first move. So many other apps out there where women don’t pay for subscription.. half the women on here are scammers anyway. Fake photos with photoshopped bodies and backgrounds. This app is purely to deceive men that it’s a worthy app. Remember 90% men are looking for 100% of women, but 90% of women are looking for top 5% of men … the odds are against us..!!!! Unless this app has major improvements to make it fair play I would not bother using this app..!!.Version: 5.332.0

Absolute appalling money hungryTaking away features which were already free on bumble and still present on rival dating platforms and putting them behind a paywall is greedy . In addition to a swipe limit per day there are like limits per week, the worst thing is that you’re able to run out of likes within the first couple days meaning you have to wait a week to start liking again. This goes against the point of bumble where you are required to respond within 24 hrs, hence discouraging users from going on the platform daily. They claim it’s to reduce the number of unthoughtful likes, however, if that really was the case they wouldn’t allow an option for you to pay for more likes. This is specifically aimed toward men and disadvantaging them as women are more likely to receive more likes and due to a higher proportion of men vs women on dating apps this allows women to have their choice without affecting their matches whilst drastically reducing the number of potential matches for men as with each swipe they are less likely to receive a match. This is an extremely sexist tactic which either forces men to pay up the cash or become extremely handicapped with potential matches whilst women remain mostly unaffected..Version: 5.254.0

Wont recommend for womenTLDR at the end. It is well know that guys swipe right on everyone and they only check the girl out when they get a match. Not only that, but you have to text them first and in a 24h window. I can imagine that half of the guys that matched me only did because they used the method of swiping right on everyone, and having to text every guy because if not the match will expire is definitely a real waste of time. My other guess is that because a girl has to text first guys suddenly feel too good and think they can do better ? Really don't know. I don't want to sound like I expect everyone to like me, not at all. I am just not sure why guys stop texting you after like 2 days of having a match. I also don't have any problems by texting someone first, but in other apps I give it a couple of days (because if we only matched because he swipes right on everyone he would have unmatched me already) and then say hi. I have used other dating apps and have had way better experience than on bumble. Even on tinder, where 90% of guys are just there for hookups, I had better results meeting really nice guys who can keep a conversation going for days and are actually really excited to grab a coffee with you. I also was curious to know if anyone had a similar experience on bumble like me, and found an interesting reddit post in which a lot of people had the exact same issues that I did. I guess the idea of the girl texting first and only having 24h to reply only works if you can make sure that the people who matched you are actually interested in you. Something that is really difficult to accomplish. I rather match people and text them when I am ready, and give time too see if they are going to un match me for any reason. Pros: - you can filter guys who actually want something serious Cons: - guys do not make an effort to keep the conversation -the 24h window to reply to someone is a lot of pressure and a waste of time, keeping in mind guys swipe right on everyone TLDR: I used this app for around 4 months and nothing came out of it. I downloaded tinder a month ago and have had way better results. Even keeping in mind that 90% of guys are there clearly for hookups. At the end of the day I guess tinder is still the most used dating app and you can definitely find people who are interested in something serious..Version: 5.135.0

Waste of time and cash grabbyI’ve been on Bumble for over 2 years now and in all that time only 3 have matched me, only to unmatch me immediately when I say “Hi/Hey” and nothing else while waiting for a response, or extend the 24 hour time limit in case they happen to be busy that day. And the app constantly gives me notifications that “someone likes you!/love is just a swipe away!” It’s really not. I’m tired of being teased with love and intimate affection. All the app does is pester you into using up your likes so you can get a Payed Subscription to get bloody Ghosted. I’m not paying to be ignored and overlooked online the same amount I am IRL. I’ve seen people saying how great this app is but after 2 years I can’t get a simple Hello back. This app is bust like every other dating app out there. Only interested in your money bc there most definitely isn’t anybody interested in you! At least that’s been my experience. Still tho at least it doesn’t have bot accounts that try to trick you into using the free 1 message nonsense those sites give you so you’re bound into paying for chances to talk to robots and further sink into loneliness. Bad app in my opinion..Version: 5.245.1

Unable to log into my accountWhen I originally signed up I used the apple login option to create the account and had no dramas using it for a few months until one day I opened the app and found I couldn’t login. I’d enter the details, use Face ID to log in and for a few seconds I get a loading screen before it circles back to the sign up/ login screen for the app. No clue as to whether I got banned or the account just somehow got lost, as I didn’t receive any emails or notifications as to what happened. Contacted customer support which wasn’t much help. They couldn’t even find an account linked to my email. Tried logging in again with the same login info after not using the app for a while, so I could try deleting my account and still the same problem..Version: 5.329.0

What’s going on? Beyond disappointedI paid for a Premium membership. Spent a fair amount of time writing my profile, posted 6 recent photos, a mix of active, casual and well dressed. First week I got a couple of profiles from guys who didn’t match my search criteria. Nor was I remotely interested in them. So I swiped left. After that zero profiles were presented. Contacted customer service about lack of matches, was told to change my search parameters. Whaaat! How can it be that I’m still receiving 0 matches within the 3rd largest capital city in Australia? My membership expires 30th June 2022. I’ve cancelled the direct debit, and put my profile in ‘incognito’ mode. What’s the use of getting my hopes up, checking for profiles when there aren’t any, just the same old ‘widen your parameters’ or ‘check back later’. Occasionally I get push notifications telling me there are matches waiting. I open the app only to read that they’re just outside my parameters. Bumble are messing with my head. I think they sent me push notifications, because they say they will, but really they’re just keeping me dangling. To add insult to injury, Bumble emailed me asking to complete their rating survey. Why would I? It wouldn’t make a difference anyway. Somethings wrong with the algorithm, the app and how Bumble operate. Really, really beyond disappointed. Buyer beware. Rating 0/5.Version: 5.266.1

"Contact us" more like get an automated responseIf you want to use an app where if you have an issue there's no way to get a human being to listen to what your problem is, go ahead and download this one. Filling the "contact us" form on the app for an issue I had with a photo being wrongly flagged as in appropriate (a very normal photo of me) led to an automated response email repeating the rules that uploaded pictures should follow. The email finished by saying this was (obviously) an automated response and if your issue hadn't been resolved yet you could reply to that email. Guess what, I did reply to that email mentioning how I knew the rules and I knew my picture didn't break any - only to receive an instant automated response saying that email address is only automated and wouldn't give me a reply. Suggesting me to fill the Contact Us form to speak with someone. Essentially there's no human being to address any queries ever, just dealing with dumb automated responses is what you'll get. Definitely not the best customer care I've ever seen..Version: 5.223.0

Not worth your timeAs an adult male looking for a female adult woman, it’s completely and utterly useless piece of app. Too shy to make the first move, not enough users and always getting the same faces on their card stack - bottom line just use another platform..Version: 5.319.0

Very, very slow appVery slow to load, difficult to edit photos, glitchy and quite painful at times. Concept is good but execution is left wanting. The amount of time spent waiting for it to start up, at times, is frustrating. Quite often you have to completely close the app and reopen it if you want to move between profiles that you’ve matched with otherwise they just fail to load..Version: 2.30.0

Online dating doesn’t work for most peopleAs per the title. If these apps worked there wouldn’t be the same people on them months and years later. Chatting with someone online strips away all the good things about being with someone in person. People have become lacklustre and don’t respond. Women match and then don’t send a message : which makes the app pointless. Certain types of people stay on these apps whilst most with any sense of self esteem give up. Leaving only the people who seem to either a) be looking for a unicorn and ONLY a unicorn, or b) people who use these apps to distract them themselves from the loneliness of their existence. Dating apps have really screwed up our society. Instead of social interactions people are assessing others based on heavily filtered photos and self written bios that often don’t really tell you much about a person beyond the surface level stuff. Do yourself a favour and don’t waste your time. I’ve found I feel better NOT using these apps. That says something. They’ll only ruin your self esteem and the majority of people using these apps have avoidant attachment issues or stupidly high standards that don’t match what they attract in real life. Ask yourself : why is this person on here? Why does this person need to get on an app? The answer is different from men to women but a little bit of common sense reveals some poignant answers..Version: 5.276.0

AgeThey say it’s for 17+ but they blocked my account and said it’s for people 18 and older.....Version: 5.135.0

Too many Scam profilesAs a male premium member looking for a female companion I have identified an over abundance of fake/scam profiles on this platform. At least 25% of the profiles are either a romance scam or escorts and that is being conservative. I am an experienced online person and know how to correctly identify such an account when it is a scam. When it is an escort, watch out! meet for a coffee, they identify as an escort and then try to coerce you into paying them for the time they took to meet you for a coffee, ya as if. Bumble appears to do little to vet the profiles identified as female. All you can do is report them, but I have also seen different photos of the same person pop up in a new profile. Very disappointing to say the least..Version: 5.311.0

Avoid bumble boost it is questionableI first downloaded bumble earlier this year, within 2 weeks I matched with someone and eventually deleted the app when we started dated. Fast forward to now I downloaded bumble again as the previous dates did not materialise past dates. Hoping for good luck I matched with 2 guys sent them both messages but then they timed out. I was then offered a free trial of boost which I accepted. I was excited about the prospect because I knew who liked my profile & therefore I was able to send them messages. Out of the 15 (possibly more) guys that I sent messages to only one responded, everyone else timed out. Even the guy that message did not respond for a few days after 🤦🏾‍♀️ To add insult to injury because I didn’t unsubscribe 24 hours prior to my free trial ending I got billed £42 for a stupid subscription that I no longer wanted. I think boost is a waste of time and there are probably a bunch of fake profiles cat fishing u into believing that lots of people have liked your profile. I find it hard to believe that someone looking to date would like your profile but then time out when a message is sent to them! I’m not happy! Jamz.Version: 5.137.0

InstagramWhy the hell is it when I clicked the "connect instagram" button with someone it made me put in details and that's all it did. It then says "you are now connected" 💀 connected how??? it didnt even give me the other persons account, all it did was make me put my instagram information. After that they removed the connect button.Version: 5.344.0

Complete waste of timeIf you’re looking for a dating app that genuinely works, this isn’t it. After having it for almost a week, I was still left without any matches. Fair enough if that was my own fault and nobody had liked me, but the app told me that I had been liked by 6 people and I could pay to see who they were. Not wanting to waste money, I continued swiping in the hope that I’d match with them or swipe left and the number would go down. Now I’ve apparently ran out of people in my area, yet the app is still telling me that there are 6 people who have liked me. So either this includes the people who I’ve already swiped left to, or the app is deliberately holding these people back in the hope that I’ll spend all my free time obsessively swiping, or give in and pay the money. Either way it’s a complete waste of time, and it prioritises getting people to obsess over it rather than actually matching people. If you’re genuinely interested in meeting people then you’re better off looking elsewhere..Version: 3.26.0

Feeling Like A Waste Of TimeNothing but swiping for two months and all I get is one person who chats for maybe ten minutes then nothing for a week before the match disappears. At least set a feature so when you unmatch someone it sends a message and maybe a reason so people don't feel ghosted. There is also no way to know when the person was last on the app so you have no idea if you are swiping someone who uses the app or has already deleted it so more wasting time. Add something that says when the person last logged into the app or delete profiles that have been dormant for long periods of time. This is the second time I have used this app and it's getting beyond a joke. For people who are trying to find someone, it make it seem like ghosting, more than a dating app..Version: 3.39.0

A Feminist dating site or one that evens the balance !I’ve been using Bumble date for a few days and found it a tad confusing for the first hour or so but soon got the hang of it. Faults or not is the question, photos can’t be cropped on the app ( of course you can do it before) so do you get more true likenesses ! Guys can’t message until they receive a message and you will only get one if you ‘like’ each other . You therefore either have to ‘swipe ‘ right on everyone or pay to see who likes you ! These likes are also time ltd 😱Profile messages are limited on space and pro-forma answers are somewhat limited , such as drinking I don’t drink often, once a month but that’s not social drinking in my book so I have to say I don’t drink ( could someone thus think I might be in AA😳). That said the quality of the members ( the females ) is very high, . Provided the profiles are real ( many sites use fake profiles ) I’ve been impressed by the standards of photos, profiles , education levels . Maybe it’s due to the ladies been more in control so I guess us guys can’t have it both ways . The key is patience chaps . A quality most don’t have so maybe you can win the heart of a lady and learn patience too 😳🤪.Version: 5.153.0

A Penny Pinchers DevelopmentThis app USED to be great! As a woman, when this was introduced to me 4 years ago, I was impressed by its motto. We talk first. I found it was an easy and understandable outlet to meet people you never expect. But Bumble’s developers have taken something great and twisted it around for money. We used to be able to set two advanced preferences and now you’ve stripped that privilege. Unless we give you Penny pinchers money. It’s not even about “not giving someone a chance”. We are humans! There are things we like and don’t like, is that so wrong? It’s much easier to limit the insane pool of people in one area then tirelessly swipe through people you know you in reality you probably won’t even go out with. And just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse…there’s a SWIPE LIMIT??? What??? When did this get put in place? It is so ridiculously pointless and glitchy. And leaves you wasting so much time swiping through people you aren’t interested in. Every person is not going to be a match. So what are you trying to force here? You’re giving so many people false hope by making the pool so wide. We live in such a judgmental society that there will be tones of people swiping and nothing will happen. I am so disappointed in the developments on this app. It honestly makes hinge look like a gold star now. And I used to think quite the opposite..Version: 5.247.0

Pay up or you won’t get matchesThe App definitely has potential and a nice layout and concept. But asking for £17 A WEEK to get premium features that are, lets be real, essential to even make this app useful, is ridiculous. £3 for ONE Superswipe? Are you okay, lol? It’s all good showing me blurry pictures of people that have liked me but how about suggesting them to me in my swipes as well? Oh no bc that way people wouldn’t see the need to pay, let me repeat £17 FOR ONE WEEK of premium features. Honestly baffles me how they come up with their prices when tinder offers the same features, if not more, for £15 a month (which I still think is way too high anyway)… so yeah. If you’re not willing to adhere to this bizarre pricing scheme this app won’t be for you. If for whatever reason you’re willing to pay that though, I think you’ll have a good experience as I feel like the community on this app is much more real and authentic than tinder’s. Your choice..Version: 5.234.0

Ridiculous amount of moneyWant £45 for a month of premium which is a lot of money to pay for every 9/10 pictures of people in sunglasses, with a group of friends, long distance shots and people looking down at the ground - how on earth can you tell what they look like!? A - offer premium on a weekly subscription basis so people can see if it’s even worth buying longer term (going off what I’ve seen, probably not) and B - Offer a range of subscription services i.e. can filter in/out certain preferences, but can’t see who’s already matched with you, or can see a limited number of people who have already matched with you, then to see more you have to upgrade etc. 9/10 people I match with don’t talk anyway and the match times out, and it’s always the same no matter what country I use the app in. Offer discounts if the guy actually does talk as an incentive to engage more. There are loads of things you could be doing, but for £45 I would never pay. And stop having random “second chance, send a compliment” pages pop up, they’re just annoying and no one uses them..Version: 5.329.1

Doesn’t respect women’s preferencesI’m a queer woman looking for women and have my preferences set accordingly but men keep showing up. I’m not talking about trans women (who I would love to date) btw, these are masc presenting men. So either it’s the algorithm ignoring my preference which is icky or it’s straight men signing up as women to get access to more women. Either way bumble needs to address this because I am trying to actively avoid men in my dating experience. Also the settings are transphobic as hell..Version: 5.237.0

AlgorithmI live with my friend and we just tried playing speed dating on your app and it’s strange how it didn’t pick each other up even know that there is no possible way to know that we live together so it’s broken. Also I have been using this site for about two years and it is dead. It is horrible I’ve had no likes. I have had absolutely nothing it’s actually wrong, and I do not want to pay for premium if the people aren’t from my local state. it does not make sense. I think you need to fix it and also if you could bring an app that is the same as bumble speed dating, but no pictures in till after five minutes of chatting if both mutually agree, that would be a good app, as it is not currently existing like that, I will give you five stars for the effort, but two stars because you need to fix the algorithm. Also on the first try I got no one . Awaiting for a fix. developer.Version: 5.296.0

MediocreI have checked out quite a few dating apps lately and this one is at the bottom of my list, not that any of them are fantastic. Sadly, I wasn’t aware when I paid for the subscription that messages disappear after 24 hours (and that BEFORE you send the message you can extend that time, bit not after). Anyway, my day 1 & I responded to a few interests (the night before the Super Bowl no less) that had actually “liked” me first, didn’t reply in 24 hours & were gone. Even though customer service said they would reappear in my search, that is not true. According to my app, there are no more (huh? Lol) people in my criteria, I never did see the few I messaged again & I was left with a bunch of others that are not “my type” even though the app says it knows my type. Lol. It also does not show people you swiped off a second time. So make sure when you swipe them off you never want to reconsider them because you won’t ever see them again. Also, make sure before you pay for this and send your first messages you read all the rules and other things so you don’t potentially lose out like I did. Really disappointed because I thought this would be my favorite out of the apps and turned out to the the most disappointing. Waste of money, honestly..Version: 5.300.0

Not bad, but needs workThis app is good for meeting new people, however, it’s kinda unfair to use. What I mean by this is that if you end up liking someone or someone (or that person) likes you, in order for you to see who that is or for it to be an official match, you must pay $18 just to see who they are that liked you, which is really unnecessary and expensive if all you’re trying to do is meet someone, and god forbid it’s someone you don’t find interesting or doesn’t match your personality, then you’d end up just blowing $18 for no reason when the whole point was just to meet someone YOU thought was perfect for you. And on top of that, the women have to make the first move (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing), but some don’t make a move at all after matching (from what I experienced). So it then makes it unclear as to whether they even meant to do that in the first place or not, and since I (a male) can’t say anything first, I’m just left in the dark as to why I haven’t heard from anyone cause I can’t say anything to confirm if she’s willing to meet. Im not trying to complain or say it’s a bad app or anything cause it actually does what it’s supposed to do, but I’m just pointing out the flaws of paying an expensive price just to see who swiped you and whether it was worth the money or not and also pointing out the communication issues between people..Version: 5.200.0

RiggedI have been off and on this app for the last six years. Something I’ve noticed that has really bothered me is that when you subscribe to premium you get very few matches. The moment that it ends you get a lot of matches that you can’t see, they rarely come up to swipe with. So you have all these matches now and they keep encouraging you to resubscribe to premium. So you do and you check the swipes you got and what do you know, it becomes stagnant again. What’s that? premium ends and I have tons of matches again. This app is a completely rigged money pit..Version: 5.318.0

Why do you bother?Hey bumble, why do you bother to ask which gender I’m interested in, if every other profile you show me is a woman when I selected man only?.Version: 5.322.0

Deceptive Lifetime Access: Bumble's BetrayalI was once a loyal supporter of Bumble, having invested in their lifetime membership with high hopes for endless premium access. However, my experience took a turn for the worse when I discovered that Bumble had revoked my lifetime privileges without any explanation. In the past, I could effortlessly restore my purchase, granting me access every time I registered using the same email. Regrettably, that is no longer the case. Despite reaching out to their support team via email and social media multiple times, not a single soul bothered to respond to my plea for assistance. To say that I am deeply disappointed would be an understatement. Bumble's broken promises and lack of support have left me feeling cheated and unheard. Their once-great reputation has now been marred by this blatant disregard for loyal customers like myself. If you're considering Bumble's lifetime membership, think twice before putting your trust and money into an empty commitment. I urge you not to fall for the allure of lifetime access, as it seems to be nothing more than a hollow marketing ploy. Take heed from my experience and choose a platform that truly values its users and stands behind its promises. Bumble, you have let me down, and I cannot in good conscience recommend your service to others..Version: 5.324.1

Not a place to find a relationshipThis app totally depends on what you’re looking for… like most dating apps. It’s definitely better than tinder but not miles ahead. If you want a relationship then I would say bumble is not appropriate. In my experience people are often dishonest on this app about what they really want… which granted people do anyway but it’s a waste of your time if they say they want a relationship when they don’t. I downloaded it about 2 years ago and I had better success then, than I did with it this time. Wether that’s because the app has changed or I’ve got different perspectives now I don’t know. If you want to build something worthwhile and meaningful with another person then the odds on this app are low. If you would like something more casual then this is probably your best bet. It’s very much based on looks alone because although you have a profile you can be pretty certain that they will swipe left or right straight away on the first picture, before looking at anything else! You have to be attracted to the person but intellect is equally as important in my opinion. It didn’t work for me but that’s just my preference..Version: 5.223.0

Barbaric & unprofessional treatment by BumbleBumble unprofessionally and un-provokingly blocked and banned my account. I contacted bumble to gain clarity on this and they’ve refused to explain the reason behind the barbaric treatment and sent me a link to their guidelines which are not specific enough to understand why they’ve treated me so poorly. I’ve thoroughly read through the guidelines, and adhere to them all. I meet the required age, I use my own appropriate photographs and I meet all content and conduct guidelines as well as all other bumble guidelines. I am beginning to think my profile may have been hacked as my phone was misplaced over the last week and I do not have a password on it. Bumble refusing to tell me what the specific issue is/was makes it impossible to be able to effectively appeal or be given a chance to explain any mishaps. Previous behavior is a good indicator of future behavior, as I mentioned above, I have been a successful Bumble user without issues on and off for multiple years now in multiple cities, without issue and the company should take this into consideration. I have recently not done anything differently than I have in the past and have totally adhered to all Bumble required guidelines, leading me to believe that perhaps my account was hacked or mishandled by someone other than myself when being outside of my possession (unknowingly to myself.) I do not deserve this barbaric and unprofessional treatment..Version: 5.329.0

Notifications don’t workPlease fix the bug with the notifications! I have everything enabled but only occasionally get alerts of a new message. It’s only when I notice the badge on my home screen that I know to check it. It would also be great to have a time stamp on the message so you know when it arrived..Version: 5.326.0

Great app for SimpsIf you’re a guy who lacks confidence and needs a woman to make the first move, then welcome home to Mommy. If you’re a girl who has bought into the victim oppressor narrative but is fine with controlling and dominating men, then this app is for you, actually all dating apps were made fore you. Except for one thing, the best men left apps a long time ago and are looking for relationships elsewhere. Not because they want to go back to a time when men dominated women, but just because they want to be in equal footing, and feel free to embrace the positive side of their masculinity. Like being bold, decisive, courageous, protective. How can you do this when apps like Bumble force you into a submissive posture and give women too much power to kick men off the platforms for acting “inappropriately” as defined, or not, by women. Are women happier with this new found power? Not in my experience. Statistically, they are opting for other women, or dogs, or seeking out therapists to figure out why they can’t achieve satisfaction in their relationships. And apps like Bumble are part of the problem. But the good news is that this is mostly a US phenomena. So update those passports boys, because it gets much better as soon as you cross the border in any direction except North 🇨🇦 hahaha. And we’ve got a great group of men and women working on a solution to dating app disertification, so stay tuned..Version: 5.325.0

In 2023??I am a male who has moved to a new city, and was advised to try bumble bff to make some new friends. I am very nervous around other men due to previous experiences in my life and was excited to make some female friends. After ages of swiping, I eventually realised that bff mode is gender based, supposedly to protect women from creeps. I get it, I get the concept. But maybe make that function opt in/out for women? Men and women can be friends too. The craziest thing is though I am physically able to just change my gender from male to female and then there they are. So it’s not really protecting anyone, and if somebody wanted to get into the female bff section then they still could, and people like me could make friends. Super limiting. Again it’s not that I don’t understand the logic, but for an 18+ app you’d expect a little bit of control for users. Seriously even if it was opted in to only same gender by default it would be fine. But these things really harder for people like me.Version: 5.312.0

Removing features to make you payEvery once in a while the developers remove a feature and ask for the user to upgrade to ”boost” or “premium” to have that feature that was free. The most recent is having a limit on how many people you can see and being asked to pay if you want to see more. Quite disappointed..Version: 5.246.0

Misogynistic DO NOT DOWNLOAD WASTE OF TIMEDO NOT DOWNLOAD IF TOU ARE A MAN woman bumble doesn’t show your account to a wide range of people and when then when you do get a match there’s a good chance they just don’t message you or are inactive and have notifications of for the app And you can’t extend matches if you match with them but send them a compliment go download tinder.Version: 5.323.0

Can’t accessThis is actually my favourite “dating” app which I enjoy using when I want to meet people. I’ve tried using it what now will be 3 times over the last 6 months but am unable to sign in using Facebook, mobile, or Apple ID. I’ve contacted the support twice with no reply. I really would love to use this app again but am so frustrated not being able to sign in with no replies to my emails..Version: 5.280.0

Fraudulent Company and AppDespite official answers to the contrary, Bumble absolutely does "shadow ban." By not banning outright, this allows them to take your money and not be held accountable. Tinder has done this for a long time, and I suspect there is not only a back-channel sharing a blacklist amongst all Match-owned sites but also industry-wide. Reports against your profile (credible or not) are never properly investigated; anything at all will do as long as you are male, especially white, to justify adding you to a list to ensure your profile will never get shown to others. They track everything... email, phone, billing information, wireless networks, photo hashes. And now they use AI to retarget in case you use different photos or alter another to change the hash. The point is, once you are on this list, even if you change phones, emails addresses, short of plastic surgery, you will continue to be shadow banned across all platforms. Conspiracy? Yes. Fraudulent due to them continuing to take money with the customer expectation they will receive the same service ad everyone else? Absolutely. One day all of this will be exposed, but it won't happen any time soon. Save your money and find some other means to make connections. You will not find them on this app and especially any Match-owned one. The blacklist is real. Shadow banning is real, and Bumble's continued lie that it does not practice it becomes laughable once one starts using the app..Version: 5.329.1

Beware the sting of the bumble and scam offersI would prefer to give this no stars even -2 because I have been ripped off by this exorbitant app and then heard absolutely nothing in response to my numerous attempts to make contact with its people...essentially I was offered a “free two week subscription trial” only to discover that bumble had gone right ahead and billed me close to $70 for a 3 month sign up.. emailed, hit the support option and I only hope that apple will see fit to refund me.. Bottom line: swipe left and go back to tinder folks !!! Update: six months later I’m told that it’s because I’ve already used the trial up... oh my god why even bother insulting me with that?!? It was the first and only tome I ever accepted an offer bumble has made.. I’m on it less and less and this development team need a training bra....Version: 5.130.1

Better than tinder, but not by muchSadly dating apps lure you in and give you matches for the first few days, then it appears that the apps will intentionally withhold matches in order for you to spend more and more money. If I could compare it to anything, it’s like a drug. The first hit is amazing, and then you’re forever chasing that high. I still recommend using the app, but it’s only good for a week or so. After that, you’re forced to spend money if you want your profile to be seen - and you’ll need to spend a lot to get the same results as you did when you first signed up..Version: 5.294.0
