Bumble Review + Is Bumble Premium Worth It?
Trotter recommends dating apps in general, saying they’re “a great way to meet people you wouldn’t otherwise meet in your everyday life.” When it comes to Bumble specifically, it really comes down to what you’re looking for (and the time you’re willing to spend creating a unique profile). You’ll see options like “not sure yet,” “relationship,” and more. So, whether you want a one-night stand or a full-blown relationship, there are options for you.
Bumble is one of the most popular dating apps out there, so there’s likely a good amount of people in your area to meet. In my experience, this requires a many swiping to reach the end of possible matches, both in smaller and larger cities. And since it’s one of the more traditional types of dating apps, chatting isn’t a problem.
The only things to watch out for on Bumble are scammers and catfish. Even if you can verify your profile, they still slip through the cracks. I think they’re easy to spot, although they tend to have filtered photos, very similar photo setups (like on private jets or in front of a major attraction), empty profiles, and profiles that say “new here”. If you know what to look out for, it’s easy to avoid them and swipe left when they appear.
As for Bumble Premium, I definitely found value and encouraged many people to try it out. I like that it has different commitment levels, so if you’re not happy, you can cancel with minimal effort.
