Bumble: Dating & Friends App for Negative User Reviews

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

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

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

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

ScamIt’s only purpose is to extort money out of you and then you need to buy some thing else for the 1st pay plan to work. Bumble is garbage..Version: 5.245.1

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

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

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

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

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

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

Was good.Since the removal of so many features for free users, this app has gone downhill. First it was the removal of the ‘back’ feature where if you accidentally said no you could go back and change your selection. Now they’ve removed the advanced filters from free users. This was a key feature and was great for narrowing down results. So now you get even less than other well known crappy dating sites. Bumble used to be good and unique. Now it’s no better than any other dating app. I upgraded to a paid subscription for 1 month and it did not afford me any extra matches or anything useful that I could not get as a free user. Now they’re pushing the premium subscription to get basic search functions..Version: 5.244.0

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

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

Butcher my picturesPlease STOP cropping my pictures and zooming into my face. it makes me look creepy. I know you to verify that I am a real person but your AI bots or whatever are stupid..Version: 5.274.0

Best dating app out right now but...Bumble has really made a name for its self. Giving women control over the conversation is a game changer and the pre made conversation starters are to die for and I love how you can set height preferences and get two free filters, but the cons are pretty hefty for me. One major update they need is gender identity. To be the best app and stay up there it would be great if people knew you are open to everyone. Having a gender identity option would be great for existing users so there is no more confusion. Also a lot of people complain about not getting notifications from the app and I can agree to that. Unless I see a badge icon or check the app I will not know if a guy messaged me and that takes away from the 24 hr window making a lot of us miss out on opportunities because no notification for messages come in but matches do. Some refining on the “looking for “ option would be great. It’s very difficult talking to someone when you want a relationship and they just want a hookup because the profiles don’t give that good of clarification. All in all bumble is a good app with amazing features and a growing community but within that community does come transgender people, non binary ppl, etc. There should be an option for them..Version: 3.29.0

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Great idea! In theoryThe idea of having women message first is an incredibly safe and progressive idea, the only problem is that women refuse to message first which is why it’s a great idea in theory, but not in practice. Which from personal experience leaves a man in a state of confusion and potential loneliness..Version: 5.224.0

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

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

Went from 5 stars to 2 quickApp use to be great, new update that limits swipes is stupid, use the app swipe a bunch, close it, reopen it 12 hours later to use it again just to get one swipe before you have to wait all day. Yikes.Version: 5.164.0

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

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

Not bad!The app is overall quite good. There are some issues with swiping (scrolling down is very sensitive, even the SLIGHTEST angle when reading a profile results in a swipe left or right — that is a bit unpredictable and there’s no real strategy to avoid that). 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..Version: 5.302.0

Good app but I have a few issues with itI personally like this app, however I have a few issues with it. Issue one: You need to pay to see who likes you. Issue two: You need to pay to re-do matches. Issue three: Matches can get expired. Issue four: You have 24 hours to get a reply from your match before it expires. Issue five: Not many people on it nor is many people that reply after you start talking to them and get the match going. Other than these five issues, I think it’s a pretty good app, but I think it would be a whole lot better if these issues get changed.Version: 5.268.0

Awful after new update Aug 2020The new update is AWFUL. Please switch back to the old version. It was so much better to be able to swipe through the profile instead of have to click through each picture. And on top of that, now my photos don’t even fit well into the profile because they are so close up and they cut part of me off in some of them. And whyyyy would you make the photos fade out to black on the edges!? It make all photos look dark! You also got ride of saying which city they were in and now just use km, knowing where they were located right now was so helpful. I literally hate everything you’ve updated to the interface.Version: 5.176.0

Garbage InterfaceWhy can we not scroll through a profile anymore? How is tapping to changes pages any better? It’s not. If the app defaults to framing a photo around its geometric centre, at least let the user adjust the photo in the app to centre around the subject. Most people aren’t positioned in the exact centre of the frame. I guess Bumble is making changes just to stay relevant. Roll back to the previous design..Version: 5.174.0

Cash grab.I had a feeling a while ago I was shadow banned on here for some reason. I raised this with support and they denied shadow bans exist on bumble. On Anzac Day a friend and I both went to a packed pub and ran an experiment with numerous girls in there. Where NONE came across my profile with specific search settings for me, however my friends account was easily seen. One of the girls was a platinum member and I found her profile and sent a match and it never came through to her phone. I ended up uninstalling the app for about 7 months and recently installed it back. The same experiment, the same result. It’s an app designed to trick you into buying super likes, platinum etc to think that’s what it’s going to take to find your match..Version: 5.290.0

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

They stole my money! Beware of this app!I used bumble for years, and had really enjoyed the app. I had a match that I’d been talking with ask for my Snapchat, and after I gave it to him, he started asking me how much it would cost for explicit photos. Naturally I was offended and didn’t accept his request or respond to the messages. About an hour later I went onto bumble and saw my account was blocked for trying to sell services. I reached out to bumble about the mistake and was told they wouldn’t give my account back. I made a new one and a week later was having technical issues. I send a report to bumble about it and received a message that everything was working fine. I downloaded the trial of boost to see if that would fix the issue, but it didn’t so I cancelled it one day into the fourteen day trial. When I went on to the app, I saw that once again my account was blocked for trying to buy or sell services. I reached out to support yet again, because I did NOTHING to cause this, and was told that they wouldn’t give my account back and made no mention of refunding the money I shouldn’t have been charged with in the first place. This app presents itself as a safe space for women, which is what I liked about it, but it really isn’t considering I’m out $50, which is a lot during a pandemic and blocked because some random man was angry I wouldn’t sell him nudes..Version: 5.181.1

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

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

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

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

Quite possibly the worst dating appI’ve used bumble a few times and never had much lucky with it, but thought I would give one last go as I wanted to seriously try and find someone this year. Unfortunately this app is full of either fake profiles or people just looking for an ego boost. I’d match with quite a few people, would think of something interesting to say, as I keep seeing ‘don’t just say hi’ and ‘you can assume my week/weekend was great’ (would challenge those people to think of an ‘interesting’ first message?) and 98% of the time I would get no response or an instant unmatch. Perhaps it’s me and I’m just not that interesting, but it seems to me the majority are fake profiles. I think it was a good idea initially to have women sending the first message, as let’s face it we’ve all received some truly horrendous first messages, but now it seems to me too many guys just want their egos boosted. Never downloading again, absolute waste of time.Version: 5.304.0

False advertisingYou advertise it’s free but once you get I you need to pay in order to see your matches!!! Super disappointed!!!.Version: 5.239.0

Swipe automaticallyHello! Is there a possibility to make the swiping less sensible? When scrolling down, even the slightest movement to the right or left, it registers as swiping and I keep accidentally like someone I don't even want to.Version: 5.245.1

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

AwfulDeliberately making the experience awful for free users so that they feel forced to pay to upgrade is a repulsive strategy. It should be a good experience when used freely, and a better experience when paying. I have been on the app for a while and I’m at the point in swiping where unfortunately, aside from new profiles and with all respect to these people, none of the profiles that I am now being shown are people I’m attracted to. However, I have just swiped left on 200 profiles (I counted) and did not get the “missed potential match” message despite there apparently being 50+ people who have liked me that I am yet to come across. They haven’t appeared at all in 200 profiles? They don’t exist or are purposefully withheld, all in a bid to make me pay extortionate amounts. I hope people continue to leave their genuine, negative reviews and maybe Bumble might change strategy. I would certainly appreciate having two free filters again..Version: 5.245.1

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

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

Understandable Intent, Unfortunate ResultsHaving used this app on and off with no success so far, it seems populated with roughly the same kind of people you would expect on Tinder, though the app is made to provide more detail and help ensure you find someone with the right personality, like I tend to want to instead of simply engaging in hookups. However, the dual features of matches expiring after 24 hours and only women being able to respond first to curb harassment makes it rather difficult for people like me, the good-intentioned though usually overlooked users, to be easily ignored. I have actually seen less engaging matches on here compared to any other site, even Tinder, and those matches usually have me requiring to respond first to start anything. It’s a shame because the app is structured well and provides great features, but it fails to let anything flourish for someone that normally does not make first approaches out of fear of rejection but does so on these apps. It can make using the app feel worse than simply doing nothing, something I have experienced multiple times. Also, I have been both a free and paid user with the same outcome of nothing when using this app as either status..Version: 5.283.0

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Technical issues- impossible to useHello there, This is the second time this has happened to me as I had to make another account last time as when I changed to snooze mode for a few hours or a week. It completely deletes all my previous connections and chats. I changed it back to none snooze mode but everything has disappeared. All my previous matches are not shown. I really hope you can help me with this situation as I do love this app but if my connections keep deleting it’s impossible to use. I even tried to write this technical issue on the app on the feedback section but it keeps saying my email is incorrect. I reinstalled it multiple times and it’s still not working. Have a nice day !.Version: 5.286.0

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

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

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

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

Terrible app won’t inform why your blockedI used the app for 48 hours looking to make friends and they block me with no explanation. Went through their email service for 3 days straight asking why I was blocked and was told they cannot tell me the reason for privacy reasons, but when you report on their site about issues they give the ability to “find out why I’m blocked” and then will circle their email back to they cannot give you a reason. Such a WASTE OF TIME. Why give they option on your site if you’re going to just tell people they can’t get that information?Unfortunate that I even have to write this review, but hope a better app to make friends comes out and drives all their business away. Seems like all they want is money and thankful I didn’t pay for this scam of an app just to make friends. I hope someone makes a better app for people to make friends that actually gives their community the reason for the block when providing a help email. Sad how someone can be blocked just for writing messages the same way to people as I stated in an email to them if the only phrase they know in a specific language that’s discrimination right there and would be a great start for a lawsuit on their hands. DON’T download unless you’re okay with huge possibility of being BLOCKED FOR LIFE.Version: 5.277.0

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

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

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

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

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

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

A political organization?Initially I liked the idea of Bumble. I think too often other dating apps allow users to match, but make no effort to actually connect. With Bumble’s “consequence feature” you lose a match if you do not reach out in time. This ensures serious inquiries and leaves those looking for hookups to the likes of Tinder. With all that being said, I found my Bumble account inaccessible one day due to a political blanket statement regarding certain current events this year (2020). I scoured the pop up looking for the elusive “X” in a corner to get out of it. However, my only option was to click “Accept.” I have no clue what I was accepting. It seems Bumble was forcing users to accept their platform’s political interpretation and narrative. I fundamentally disagree with this. Bumble is an app designed ultimately for dating, and not a political organization taking a stand. Which stifles diversity on the app. At this point, perhaps Bumble should even consider removing political orientation from the “about you” section. After being forced to click accept or never access my profile again. I hastily and happily deleted my profile. Prior to this I would have generally considered Bumble as one of the better dating apps available. However, unless you accept and agree to their political narrative, you’ll find yourself unable to use the app for what it was designed for, dating..Version: 5.176.0

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

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

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

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

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

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

Love the concept, not the end resultI’ve been a fan of Whitney Wolfe for a number of years and love the concept of the App. However with millennials using dating apps less frequently and with far less effort, the Bumble model doesn’t appear to work and spark meaningful conversation with its time-limits. I wonder how it could be improved. Perhaps boys are able to message first too? And perhaps you can keep the conversation going, but it gets deleted if no interaction has occurred for 30 days? The current dating apps don’t seem to be working. I do like the brand of Bumble but I have stopped using it because it’s extremely difficult to get an understanding of what a guy is actually like in real life as the conversation is sporadic and largely small talk. People don’t invest enough time and energy in creating meaningful connections on these apps so I wonder whether this model really works anymore?.Version: 5.118.0

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A good conThis app is set up like all the rest. Swipe left or right. You can’t search everyone at once, you have to go through 1 at a time and eventually you won’t be able to swipe right anymore till you pay or wait a day under the bumble guise of “limited free right swipes make you think harder about who you swipe right on” but once you pony up the cash, swipe right all you want. Here’s where the con comes in. Once you sign up you’ll get 10 +/- likes which of course you can’t see till you pay. Then you pay and if none of those likes are you’re type you can pay more to promote your profile or pay more to super like someone. Oh and eventually you’ll run out of people who fit your search criteria. I live between two major cities with a population of over 8 million people, my criteria was women within 20 years of my age. I ran out of people to look at after 2 days…..but wait, the day after my subscription ran out I received a bunch more likes on my profile. Which of course then you have to again to see those likes. Coincidence? I am convinced your is not shown until maybe the last day of your subscription in order to get you to resubscribe. I understand this is a business and the route to make money. But it’s pretty ridiculous when it’s that obvious. Oh and by the way when you run out of people that fit your criteria, log back in 15 mins later, there’s another 25 people to search till you run out again..Version: 5.291.0

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

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

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

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

Getting Worse With Every UpdateStarted as an ok app! But each update just seems to make the system run slower and more clunky. Constantly getting the same people popping up which is annoying, once you say no once they should disappear for at least a little while. Also getting a tonne of notifications but when I open the app, nothing loads and every page is blank. (I’m using 4G and have no internet connections with any other app). And now they’ve started emailing me like every half an hour to say I’m “generating a buzz” or something but there’s no opt out of emails option! If I’m really doing that well for business then contact me directly and we can work out a deal lol..Version: 3.2.0

Better than tinder but could still be improved in many waysBetter than tinder as it gets girls to message first...which makes tinder almost a waste of time. Although the huge lack of available swipes and having to wait forever until being able to swipe again is extremely annoying. What’s even more annoying is the amount of false notifications this app sends (“you have 3 messages waiting, find out who!” Even though nothing Etc), as well as how everything about it is “pay pay pay to unlock more”. Also why are girls constantly liking me but I have to pay to view them on the beeline, instead of any of them simply showing up on my feed to match with them. Prices for any premium features (which shouldn’t even exist) are also outrageous! Developers need to push their greediness aside and allow for a more user friendly app..Version: 5.248.0

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

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

Diversity & Interracial Dating NonexistentI think there should be a place that shows what ethnicity guys are interested in. I only say that because I am a black woman and there’s mostly white guys on here. And most white guys (especially in the South where I live) aren’t interested in talking to, let alone dating a black woman. It would be very helpful to have a “Who I’m looking for” feature on the guys’ profile. That way black women like myself are not having to guess on whether a guy would like me or not because of the color of my skin. (I found myself trying to see if a guy had black friends based upon his profile pictures or if he listened to black artists just to make a guess on whether he would even like me). My experience on Bumble made me feel undesirable & like I wasn’t even meant to be on here in the first place. And if that’s truly the case, I think it should be clarified in the App Store that this app is only for white people (I don’t mean to be cynical. I’m just being honest 🤷🏽‍♀️) I swiped right on a lot of white guys on here and none of them swiped right on me. The only person who did swipe right on me was the only black guy that I seen on here. Imagine that! I just think it would be easier to know beforehand if I had a chance of a guy outside my race liking me instead of just performing endless swipes on guys who wasn’t going to like me in the first place just because I am black..Version: 3.5.0

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

"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

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 timeDoes this app work for ethnic guys cause holy I’ve been on this app for 3 weeks selectively swiping with pictures picked out by others and nothing, no matches at all. Very disappointing and shows the racial bias that exists on dating apps especially this..Version: 5.171.0

Waste of timePlease don’t download this app. It is a waste of time. You get shown no one in your area with the parameters you set unless you pay a subscription. App is slow and a lot of bot profiles..Version: 5.310.0

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

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

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

You can’t zoom In on the pics anymore? WtfCan’t zoom in no more, change that back.Version: 5.174.0

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Customer Service FailThis is my second account with Bumble. The first one I had to cancel because I simply tried to verify my account by taking a picture (which seems like the only way to do so) and could not do so. I literally took several photos in the same spots in my house and the app basically told me I’m not me. The app then locked me out and forced and when I contacted customer service for assistance they suddenly could not find an account for me. So stupidly I started another profile, with some of the same pictures and definitely the same information. So I decided to try and verify my account yet again….and yet again it will not allow me to verify. I have contacted customer service and have received a basic email with no information that is of use to me. I am now locked out of my account and will likely close my account. This app is really not that user friendly and it makes it impossible to receive any helpful customer service to solve a simple problem. I recognize that verified accounts add another layer of security (which is why I wanted to verify mine) but this is too much trouble! Oh and I’ve yet to find anyone who isn’t trying to sell something, have me follow them on another site or who isn’t really married to someone I may know!.Version: 5.249.0

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

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

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

Perte de temps solideJe ne suggère absolument pas l’application, je suis en mauricie et c’est beau dire qu’ils y a des femmes qui s’inscrivent. J’ai reçu plus de match possible avec des américaines!? Le niveau d’activités féminines semble quasi-inexistent. Mais semblerait-il à ce que j’ai remarqué, une tonnnnnneeeee de femmes mais solidement plantées!?.. du genre, vraiment trop beau pour être vrai. Elles ont tous une scolarités de haut niveau.. genre je m’excuse mais si je vais à l’université Mc gill.. je vois même pas l’intérêt de m’inscrire à une application de rencontres.. on s’entend que ta juste à regarder autour de toi!!?.. je me suis intéressé à l’application par manque d’occasion donc à cause que je ne vois pas bcp de gens dans mon quotidien.. vos profiles semblent complètement fake et non plausibles.. tant qu’à ça.. je crois que Tinder est clairement plus plausible et réaliste que Bumble… c’est n’importe quoi.Version: 5.253.0

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

PatheticTechnical issues all the time. Taking money when for no reason a number of times and having me purchased boost and premium upgrades when these upgrades should already be active. Then spending and wasting my entire night three hours trying to sort this mess out. I try to contact the apps developers and after filling in all the relevant fields I try to submit the application technical issues I’m asked to fill and repeat the captcha when after at least 50 attempts with it kept asking me to fill in again and again as a new captcha continued and kept appearing each time. Talk about an infuriating unnecessary process that should not of happened in the beginning.Version: 5.246.0

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

Removed backtracksWas once the best but no longer. They removed the three backtracks which was the best feature. No better than tinder now. And the quality of profile has also gone down. Perhaps everyone moved to hinge. 🤷‍♂️ Developers response is to say it’s in boost. It always was possible to pay for more. Your customers are annoyed you removed the three free ones. You removed a feature everyone loved that was balanced well, without any communication. Pages and pages of one star reviews. Time to backtrack on the roadmap.....Version: 5.163.0

New Match Queue FeatureI guess they added a feature for the Bumble Boost Match Queue, that keeps people in the queue that swiped on you and then left town, or keeps people in your queue who swiped on you when you were out of town. Since they rolled out this new feature, over half of the guys in my match queue are super far away from me. I have my search radius set to 50 miles away. I’m getting guys in my queue who are 100+ miles away. I live in Oklahoma and I have guys still in my queue from FLORIDA that I assume are there from my vacation back in JUNE. I also have guys from Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, and have gotten several from Texas and Colorado. This feature is AWFUL. If other people want to set their search radius for super far away, fine. But if mine is set to 50 miles, I don’t want to see ANYONE outside that radius! Even if I was in the same town as they were for a short period of time, and even if they swiped on me. If I had wanted to see who was available while I was in Florida, I would have opened the app to look. But I wasn’t interested in guys halfway across the country then, and I’m not interested in them now. It’s been an absolute chore to try and weed through them, but it never seems to end and honestly, I’m exhausted! I hope they fine tune this feature or give us an option to turn it off..Version: 2.35.0

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

Pretty Horrendous Customer ServiceSo I accidentally purchased a Premium plan a while back, whatever, my fault. Happened to get off all dating app platforms shortly afterwards until just recently, and trying to get my purchase restored to my new account has been a nightmare. First off, I’m fairly certain Bumble is the sole app that lacks an in-app purchase restoration option, which feels pretty shady. As far as I can tell, they also lack a customer service chat AND phone number, leaving e-mail as the only available method. Initially, I was told they couldn’t find my purchase receipt. Then, after explaining that I was not the primary account holder in my Family Plan and perhaps it was tied to that email — though it shouldn’t be, as it was made my from previous Bumble account tied to my Apple ID — they stated they had in fact already found it, but they would instead need the payment confirmation from my email. Ended up providing it in a response, then tried following up and even sent a whole new inquiry, and still have yet to hear anything from them after several hours. I have to ask, is this an intentional run-around to withhold services despite payment? Perhaps even aiming at further purchases made out of exasperation?.Version: 5.242.0

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

Bumble cares more about political correctness than it does a false abuse report.I think we are all aware of the tension in politics that has happened in the last few years. You go on dating apps and everyone has their political views listed. Some of it hateful and some of it empowering. At the end of the day we’re all protected under the first amendment to express our views. Well someone most likely read what my bio had to say and decided to report me for “abuse”. The fact that there are people on these apps that are actual victims of abuse is what makes this disgusting. It’s fine to disagree with someone but to falsely report their account to have it deleted is something else. I messaged bumble customer support directly about this and they were not willing to listen to my side of the story. This app goes in line with cancel culture and has double standards for the users of its app. What I had on my bio was nowhere near controversial as to the stuff I would read about killing cops, causing harm to people with more right wing political views, etc. This app needs to review it’s rules and what it considers to be abuse, violence and hate-speech. And it also needs to do more homework and better investigation on when someone falsely reports an account. The fact that my account was taken down but there are others with worse things on there is disgusting..Version: 5.208.0

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

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

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

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

Be good if I could get some matches!I’ve been on Bumble on about 3-4 weeks now and had 2 matches overall. I filled out my profile to make it engaging and hopefully not cheesy but just following suggestions on what to do to boost your chances. I spoke to Bumble’s online team and they said there wasn’t a problem with my profile and all my filters are best suited to get a match so they put 4 spotlights in my account (which supposedly boosts 16x your profile to people near for 30 minutes). I did some research what is the best time to use them and did it. Still no matches... Seriously! What a way to put my confidence at an all time low. So I guess if there isn’t anything wrong with my profile, then I guess it’s me 😐 I don’t really use online dating apps as I feel a bit of that chemistry is lost but being in lockdown I’d thought I would give it a try and boy that was a mistake. I’m just peppered with notifications telling me to keep swiping and just giving that false hope..Version: 5.207.0

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Terrible Way of Running AppThere are some major flaws and serious opportunities to fix these issues but Bumble will not. Sharing contact information on any app is now done through social media. Everybody is allowed to just put their social media information on their profiles and this is a huge issue for many reasons. It incentivized zombie accounts where people just make and keep accounts to get followers on their instagram/facebook/snapchat. This makes up a bulk of accounts from what I see. Even if they aren’t zombie accounts, most people on the “dating” part of the app are using it to just get friends and followers. Not many are here for any relationship. I’ve asked many people I matched with why they don’t used the bff or bizz option. Apparently it’s not working and it creates an issue for the people who are looking to actually date on the date option. As an app developer myself, I know there are tons of things that can be done to fix these issues and I’ve actually emailed Bumble about this many times. To no avail. So, it appears they do not care. Figured this is valuable information for those looking for an app where you will not have to waste your time if this bothers you. Lots of other options out there that don’t allow for social media to be advertised on profiles. I recommend spending your money there..Version: 5.291.0

Barely functions usually and now won’t openLovely concept of empowering women to make the first move. If you live in Scotland this app is useless as there are very few members to match with. Slow to open and upload any profiles and then can only view about 1 or at most occasionally 2 profiles per day. Limits on profile configuration so rigid gives no real sense of the person. Frustrating time outs option means you have to check the app daily which is a nuisance when the app takes forever to upload. Now app doesn’t open at all beyond initial beehive symbol. Frustrating getting notifications saying people have matched or messaged you and no way to view or reply. This is with a so called premium membership. I suggest don’t waste your time unless you live in a big city in England. In the last 5 months (membership expires Sept) have only been able to chat with 2 people for about a min each. Hardly a platform for relationships..Version: 5.226.0

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

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

NO MESSAGE EVERThis dating app like all other dating apps is trash. I’m sick and tired of matching with someone. Then they never message you at all. Why swipe right on a person if you have not attentions messaging them when you match. I’d be happy if you just messaged me saying I’m not interested. God is it impossible these days to get into a real relationship. I guess I’ll just die alone..Version: 5.243.0

Features broken. Not woman friendly.Their "block" feature is broken. I blocked my co-worker (so awkward) then a few swipes later he popped up again. This happened with different people mind you. This isn't a very 'woman friendly' app after all. Also if men can extend 24 hours why can't women if a guy doesn't respond? I used to love this app for dating but with the block feature broken it's terrible and false advertising. Blocking doesn’t work and women can’t extend a match once you say hi. Bumble has responded and it’s bologna. Their block feature is broken as this has happened repeatedly (no they didn’t make new profiles this happens all the time in the same week I block every guy I see that I know and lo and behold he pops back up) and I as a woman can’t extend once I say hi and they don’t check their phone within 24 hours. Maybe I want to extend and am powerless to do so. I get way more matches on tinder and okcupid something about bumbles algorithm isn’t set up for successful matching and I’m a paying member. Their super swipe is a complete waste too. The person never sees it! I was super swiped by a guy and because I paid I could see him up top in green with a heart. I waited for a week of swiping to see if he’d show up as a match and he never did. Now I feel foolish for wasting the $2 on guys who never even saw me. You’d think it would push the match to the front of the line..Version: 2.17.0

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

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

This app targets men to make money off subscription feesAfter having the app for 1 day, speaking with 2 people, my account was blocked and I’m unable to re-sign or get a response from them. No guidelines need to be violated, you just need to have your profile reported. This could be from a disgruntled ex on the app, someone that doesn’t like the look of you, someone that you’ve spoken with in the past and chosen not to pursue. There’s no warning or opportunity for discourse. They have a standard response saying they review everything however they simply don’t, it’s just a cut and paste response used to take money. Once you begin the process they suggest, you’re simply ignored. This is why they can’t provide evidence or show an actual breach of any guidelines . I’m sure there’s some awful people on there but for genuine men, this app isn’t the one for you..Version: 5.250.0

Banned For No ReasonI 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: 5.308.0

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

Misleading Notifications, Defective SwipingIn terms of people on the app, Bumble is pretty decent. You have the ability to filter to only verified profiles which is nice. However, Bumble notifications are what annoy me the most. Why send a notification if you don’t have a like or a match? Some notifications are so misleading and it’s just about getting people back on the platform and back on their phones. It’s about business as usual, trying to keep you on the app for as long as possible while not getting you a match. I get that this is the model that all dating apps function on but at least try to make it less obvious. People who are motivated to find someone don’t need a reminder to go on a dating app. They just need to know when they get a match or a like. That’s it. Concerning the swiping mechanism, I can’t tell you how often I’ve swiped right or left by accident while trying to scroll down on a profile. I would suggest changing the sensitivity of the swipes or using buttons instead like Hinge. Also something that goes for all dating apps, not just Bumble. Spotlight should be active for at least 6h, not 1h. I’m glad Bumble gives you 1 free Spotlight a week, but come on, one hour is not enough for the price you would pay if you bought one..Version: 5.195.0

Great concept, terrible executionI love the idea of Bumble, putting woman in control helps to (slightly) reduce the amount of unwanted attention they can receive. However, the Bumble app is massively flawed and potentially broken. As the majority of users have mentioned, it’s hugely overpriced. You now no longer get any free filtering - you should be allowed to filter by smoking or religious preferences at least. You now only get a limited number of right swipes. But here’s the best part - the app keeps showing me women I have already swiped on, meaning I have to use up my limited free swipes just to see new people. I’ve swiped right on one woman 5 times now and I feel there’s a good chance I’m going to get her again…guess it wasn’t meant to be? More likely Bumble is trying to wring some money out of me. I really want to like Bumble, but with their greedy paywalls and removal of basic features, it’s becoming very difficult..Version: 5.245.1

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

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

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

If you have nothing better to do with your time and moneyBeen on here for about a month, my filters are set appropriately 39-55 looking for female. I am a 7/10 conservatively my search is set for whole country because I believe my choices are limited where I live. I have swiped till I can not swipe any more. I’ve experienced 6 matches, 6 matches??!! Seriously??!!! of them two never sent a message two were given extra time also never sent a message. I was not allowed to post a picture of myself at gun range?! Is this illegal? Immoral? Or on bad taste? I don’t think so, lots of women hating conservatives and Trump to push a socially political agenda. The conservatives seem to be much more polite as they just say swipe left if you don’t like my political affiliation. I don’t understand why someone can not post a real picture of themselves doing a sport activity that millions of people enjoy and do, but allow people to post pictures that are so heavily filtered they look like cartoons! Always scroll to the last picture for the real persons looks, seems like false advertising to me. I am not bitter nor am I hating on your app you have every right to capitalize on lonely souls looking for love in all the wrong places, but as for me I’ll just go back to live events where I can actually meet someone with the same interests and actually speak to them..Version: 5.210.0

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

Subscription has ruined this appI used bumble a while back and I found it was very easy to use and helped me find a few dates. I recently decided to give it another go, but in order to actually see any of the people who like you you have to pay a $21 subscription fee. What’s the point? Look, I’m completely understanding that companies are looking to make money off of apps, but most of them allow you to use basic features for free, or at the very last show ads. That’s not even the case at all here. They let you waste time building a profile, adding pictures, seeing if there’s anyone you want to match with, then God forbid anyone likes you back and you want to see them, you have to subscribe. Also $21 is steep. Most streaming services don’t cost half of that price and it just seems insane to me. I will uninstall and never use again when there’s plenty of other working options for this type of thing out there that let you use their service without requiring paying monthly. Also, it’s $21 a WEEK, $45 a month. Also can you cut the crap with the adding pronouns section? If somebody cares so much about letting you know, they can easily put it in their bio. Thanks for the heads up. God forbid I found a solid match and they didn’t have the pronouns I was interested in, I’d have to swipe left..Version: 5.279.0

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

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

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

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

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

Torture.Dating apps for men is torture, you either see the same type of girl over and over, or you just never get a match. Sure I’m no perfect ten, but really? There’s no hope 😂.Version: 5.268.0

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

No equality between men and women!Equality between men and women doesn’t exist in this app Only the girls who can send messages which is discrimination against men.Version: 5.290.0

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

Not worth premiumPaying for premium allows you to see 50max who have swiped on you. Beyond that is something bumble can’t handle. Pretty much useless when there’s no one who catches your attention or you have an app flooded with girls who want validation yet aren’t interested in interacting.Version: 5.217.0

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

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 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

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

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

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

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

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

“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

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

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

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

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

48 hours at leastNot everyone checks this app every day.. Good connections could be lost forever with this stupid rule..Version: 5.239.0

Tinder liteTook a break from this, then came back and apparently there was an update limiting swipes and requiring subscriptions to backtrack. They have basically copied tinder but not as user friendly and far fewer users. There are good things about bumble, but overall really disappointing, hope it changes back if I ever use it again..Version: 5.167.1

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

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

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

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

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

Re the app my rantSo much texting .. gruelling vetting process. i understand it’s important for a woman to know as much as pos’ about someone before meeting for a coffee or even talking on the phone but, text really is so impersonal and rather clunky .. and i’m kinda witty, reasonably sharp... i think i engage, honest and keep it light, ask a lot of good questions.. i don’t know, think ill stick to old fashioned face to face .. seems to be a lot of middle aged women that just want a bit of a chat .. fair enough i guess ? anywho, i ain’t texting back and forth for an hour anymore .. rather go for a run .. I’m really fit, a professional, mid 50’s kids out on their own.. i’d like to actually meet some one .. in person and have an actual conversation .. i think i’ve missed something ? bye.Version: 2.31.0

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

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

Paid but didn’t receive.Bumble is such a nice clean, easy to navigate app. And as such, it was easy to accept the 14 day free trial. After a break, I retuned to Bumble and, through the subscriptions tab in my Apple id, I purchased a 1 month membership on Jan 7. It’s now Jan 11 and I still have not had the membership benefits applied to my app (only seeing the free version). I sent a screenshot of my purchase history, showing the transaction, however Bumble have responded to my query, requesting an iTunes receipt - which I did not receive. Ive also got in touch with iTunes on Jan 7. I received a ‘we’re looking into it’ response on Jan 9. And I’ve heard nothing since. So for the sake of the price of a one month membership - I give up. It’s so disappointing that an ever increasing number of entities are getting away with not delivering what you’ve paid for. The hidden recurring charges, the fine print, the difficulty experienced when simply trying to talk to someone. And yet, the process to take your money seems incredibly seamless..Version: 5.146.1

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

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

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

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
