BUMBLE is one of the most popular dating apps in the world – with over 100 million users.
We’ve compiled some of the most important facts about Bumble, including how it works and whether it’s free.
What is Bumble?
Bumble is a dating apartment Similar to Tinder where daters can create a small profile of themselves with pictures and swipe them through potential suitors.

However, Bumble only allows the woman to make the first move, and she must send the first message.
If the woman doesn’t send the first message within 24 hours of pairing, the match is lost.

How does Bumble work?
To use Bumble, you must first download the app from your app store and create an account, which you can do through Facebook.
You can then choose pictures from your Facebook account to include on your profile and you can also write a short bio about yourself.
The app then uses your location to look for potential matches in your area, using your gender, age, and distance settings.
If you see a match you like swipe right, if you’re not that keen swipe left.
If you and someone else swipe right for each other, you match, and then the woman has 24 hours to make the first move and send a message.
If she doesn’t, the match is lost and you can no longer message each other.
Or even if she sends a message, if the guy doesn’t reply within a day, the match also disappears forever.
