Bumble App Review

I heard a lot about Bumble App. Then I used this app for two months. Now, I am going to share my experience in Bumble App Review.

I have used a lot of dating apps. Then I heard about the Bumble dating app, and I also heard somewhere that this app is for women.

I was a little confused that how can be a dating app made only for women.

Then, I installed this app and used it for 2 months. After using this app for more than 2 months now, I have some mixed feelings about this app.

After reading the Bumble app review, you will have a great idea about this app. You will know that is Bumble a worth downloading dating app, or should you go for another dating apps?

Note: The app is not made only for women. The app is for all. Now the question is why this app is only for women.

Because the woman has control over sending text first. If you are a boy, you can’t send the text first, and you have to wait.

The description of the Bumble App:

At Bumble, women make the first move. In heterosexual (opposite sex) 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.

From the description of the app, it is clear that you can’t send the message first if you are a boy.

The girl on the other side will make the first move. If she does not send the message within 24 hours, the match will expire.

You have an option to extend the validity of the match to another 24 hours. But you can do it only once. It means that after extending the validity, you have 48 hours in all.

You can’t make the first move, so we can say that it’s all in women’s hands.

As this is a dating app, it’s for 18 plus users. The app consists of in-app purchases that cost from Rs. 55 to Rs. 15,100 per item in India which is $0.78 to $214 (USD).

My Experience with the Bumble app

I am using a lot of dating apps for so long now. Comparing to other dating apps, I am not completely satisfied with the Bumble dating app. I have a mixed experience of using this app.

This app has millions of users, but only a few will get matched to you. Out of those few persons, a couple of people will talk to you.

The main reason for that is, you can’t send the text first. You have to wait for the message from the other side.

It’s a good concept of making the first move from the women’s side, but my question is how many women text first?

According to my experience, there are only a few women that text you first. But if they don’t text you first, you can’t do anything.

There are a lot of girls who never text. If they never talk, then what’s the point of using a dating app.

There are also some issues people are facing with this app.

If you don’t believe, then check these screenshots of the Bumble app reviews on Playstore.
