Dating role reversal: After a match, females have to initiate the conversation! It's a refreshing change for both sexes.

Where women break the ice

What is it about?

Bumble is an interesting social networking app because it focuses on dating role reversal: after two people are matched up, it is up to the female to initiate the conversation and connection. While it may be different, it is certainly refreshing and assures females that they won't be contacted by people that they don't want to chat with.

For those who...

  • Want a different kind of dating or networking app
  • Are females and not afraid to take initiative

Not for those who...

  • Want a standard dating app experience
  • Don't like women starting conversations

Why we love it

It's an interesting take on the standard dating app.

App Store Description

Over 100 million people have signed up for Bumble to start building valuable relationships, finding friends, and making empowered connections.

Creating new connections has never been easier. Bumble is working to lift the stigma of online dating by employing unprecedented standards for respectful behavior. Because of this relentless dedication, millions of people are using Bumble to build valuable relationships every single day.


Bumble is at the forefront of matchmaking technology by providing an app that allows users to foster more than just romantic connections. The industry-leading app empowers users to swipe through potential connections across three different modes:

Bumble Date: On Bumble Date, women make the first move. We’ve changed the archaic rules of the dating game so that you can form meaningful relationships in a respectful way.
Bumble BFF: Life is better with friends. Whether you’re new to a city or looking to expand your circle, Bumble BFF is the easiest way to make new friends.
Bumble Bizz: Now we’re in business. Use Bumble Bizz to network, find mentors, and create new career opportunities.

Bumble is the first app of its kind to bring dating, friend-finding, and career-building into a single social networking platform.


At Bumble, women make the first move. In heterosexual matches, the woman has 24 hours to make the first move and the man has 24 hours to respond. In same-sex matches, either person has 24 hours to make the first move, while the other individual has 24 hours to respond, or else, the connection expires. By prompting our users to be bold and make the first move we’ve seen over 3 billion messages sent to date.
