Are you ready to start swiping and potentially find your match on Bumble? Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to set up your Bumble profile.
First, create a Bumble account and open the app. Follow the prompts and set up your profile with a bio, photos, and move makers, which are questions for you to show off your personality.
Now it’s time to choose what mode you want to use. We’ll start with date mode, though each mode is structured similarly. You’ll see people to swipe through and your account information and conversations with your matches will be stored in the app.
When swiping, scroll up to see more of their profile. Swipe left if you’re not interested and swipe right if you are. You’ll be alerted when you match. For opposite-gender matches on Bumble, only women can initiate the conversation. If you’re matching with someone of the same gender, you both have the option of messaging first. Each match expires in 24 hours.
Bumble also offers two additional modes: friendship and career-networking. To switch modes, go to the profile tab and click the cog-wheel icon on the top right, which brings you to settings. If you’re looking for a friend, choose bff mode. It’s a similar setup, but you’ll only see users of the same gender. Once you match, either person can message first. Bumble bizz is focused on career networking. You can build your profile as an almost casual resume, including your skills and more about yourself, as well as list your previous jobs and education. Only women can message first in opposite-gender matches in Bumble bizz. In any same-gender pairing, the second person to swipe right can message first.
In every mode, your matches expire after 24 hours with the free version of Bumble, but you can buy paid features. Happy swiping!
