Bumble is different than other dating apps as it was designed by women for women. It gives women the power to make the first move and control the conversation. How it works is that, when a woman’s profile is matched with another profile, the woman has 24 hours to “make the first move”, so to speak, and reach out to their match. After the 24-hour period, the connection expires.

Like other dating sites, however, Bumble does require its users of all genders to create a profile that features a bio and photo.

This bio gives you the ability to introduce yourself, while also improving the matches you receive.

To help get the most out of your Bumble experience, you will need to write an engaging bio that includes who you are and what you’re looking for.

If you’re new to the whole online dating scene or just want to improve your Bumble bio, consider implementing the following tips to perk up your profile and get better matches.

Be Positive

Bumble Bio

Most people are drawn to others who have a positive or happy attitude, and very few are looking to spend time with someone who is constantly negative. Instead, keep your profile light and fun, with a positive tone.

You should also keep snarkiness out of your bio. Sometimes, snarkiness comes across as bitter and just plain mean, and unless you want to portray yourself as that type of person, it’s just best to steer clear of the snark.

Provide A Rundown Of Yourself And Your Life

While it may be tempting to lay out exactly who you are in long and drawn-out paragraphs, it’s best to keep it as short as possible while still providing that much-needed information.

After all, most people don’t want to spend an extended amount of time reading a novel that is your Bumble bio. Instead, focus on what is most important to you and emphasize that info instead.

You can go into further details or provide more info once you make a connection with someone.

Be Truthful About What You’re Looking For

Don’t include that you’re only looking for a good time and nothing serious if you are, in fact, looking for your soulmate. Not only is that similar to bait and switch, but it is just downright rude to lie about what you expect from Bumble dating apps.

Furthermore, if you state you don’t want anything serious, then those are the type of matches you will be given. That is why it is important to be truthful, so you get the most out of the app.

Describe The Type of Character You Want To Meet

While it is important to let other Bumble users know who would be your ideal match, care should be taken not to focus on someone’s characteristics. Avoid adding things such as “if you’re not over 6 feet tall then it won’t work,” and instead describe the type of character you are looking for. 

Focusing on a person’s character, and describing the values you are interested in, will help you connect with other like-minded individuals. When you focus on characteristics, however, you may come off as superficial with unattractive qualities.

Try To Be Less Vague

Trying to fit all the important info into a short bio can be difficult. This often leaves users stumped as to what to write, which generally ends up with them adding a vague statement, such as “I like to travel”, to their bio.

Traveling can range from going to Walt Disney World to spending a month backpacking throughout Europe, and you cannot expect the reader to know exactly what you meant by it.

So, forgo the vagueness and talk about your all-time favorite destination or what your next travel plans are. This can help you connect with others who like the same type of travel as you. 

Check Spelling And Grammar

You may be thinking, “Why would spelling and grammar matter on a dating app?” The truth is, a lot of people list bad spelling or bad grammar as a pet peeve of theirs, and not taking that into consideration before you submit your bio could turn off a lot of potential matches.

Take the time to spellcheck your bio, and put time and thought into what it says. You will be surprised at just how much this can improve your matches. 

❤️ Pro Tip: If you’re sick of finding people who are just looking for one-night stands, we recommend trying eHarmony.

It’s one of the highest-rated online dating apps in the world. eHarmony users are actually actively looking for relationships. Give it a try here for free and see if you can tell the difference.

Don’t Forget The Pictures

The pictures you include in your profile can also affect whether or not others want to reach out to you. Dating profile experts typically recommend 3 types of pictures that you should include in your profile.

The first is a headshot, the second is a full-body shot, and the third is an action shot. 

For the headshot, you want to avoid wearing anything that could obscure your face, such as a mask or hat, and refrain from using Snapchat filters. Smiling will help make you come across as friendly and approachable. 

The full body shot lets other users see the full you. So take the time to wear something that makes you feel confident and empowered.

Whether this is a sexy red dress or a power suit. Select the outfit that gives off the vibe you are trying to convey.

For the third photo, use an action picture that shows you in your element doing something you love. If you’re a hiker, include a photo of you out in the wilderness hiking to the top of a mountain peak.

If you enjoy spending time creating one-of-a-kind pottery pieces, upload a photo of yourself behind your pottery wheel while you’re sculpting your next piece of art.
