If you’ve never heard of the dating app Bumble, you’ve most likely heard of the concept behind it, at least: Download an app, make a profile, then swipe through photos of potential mates.
If you’re interested, you swipe right — if you’re not, swipe left.
What makes Bumble different from other dating apps like Tinder and OKCupid, though, is its focus on giving women all the power. Men using Bumble can swipe through the app and to find matches, but they can’t initiate conversations.
Bumble was founded by Whitney Wolfe, a cofounder of Tinder who left in 2012 and filed a sexual harassment suit against the company (Wolfe later settled out of court). The Bumble app launched in December 2014, and as of February 2017, Bumble had 12.5 million registered users spending an average of 100 minutes a day on the app.
But whether you’re one of those millions of people currently using the app, or just interested in what it has to offer, here’s a walkthrough on what it’s like to use Bumble.
