Bumble, ¿is it any good?

Post by Hielario on Thu May 24, 2018 10:16 pm

So, I've heard a little about this dating app called "Bumble" where apparently conversation can only be initiated by the female members. Since I struggle a lot with mantaining conversations and generating interest when I'm the initiator/women act passively, I've thought this one could work well for me.

But I'm a little wary, both because it asks for my phone number to register, and because the last site with a similar conceit I tried turned out to be overloaded.

So, what are your experiences with this app? Is it good? Is it easy to use? Is it a scam?

While I haven't used Bumble, I've read their website. They encourage women to send really low effort messages (i.e, "Hi"). On regular dating sites, 99% of the messages that I got were very generic messages like that, and those sites had good advice articles about how to write a first message, so I really cringe at the thought of a site that encourages people to send generic messages. It could be even worse there.

However, I know that generic messages don't bother everyone, so if you're not the type to sigh if you get a "Hi" or "How are you?" this won't apply.

If you're still willing to try dating in person, would you be open to going to a more structured activity, where you could make conversation about the activity during or after it? For example, my city has a Meetup for people to watch films and then go to a restaurant after to discuss the film.

It's okay if you want to date in a black and white way in which one person has the pursuer role, and the other the pursued role, but could you consider something in the middle? I read comments on some old Doctor Nerdlove articles about this. For example, one person will start a conversation with someone, and if the person doesn't ask her a question about herself at some point, she'll disengage. Another person looks for back and forth escalations, such as if she approaches a guy, but then he asks her out.

I don't have any problem with simple starters, so i'll be OK. It's not a marker of being uninteresting in my experience.

To answer your next question, I'd be fine, but trying to meet people through organized activities has been a gamble in my experience. Thanks for reminding me about meetup, though.

Sorry for the flood, but I'd really like to know if anyone has heard anything about how secure they are. I'm very careful with my data after finding out a charity org had gotten my number from somewhere else.
