3 simple ways to ACTUALLY get a response on Bumble.

I hear it all the time. I get matched with a bunch of guys, but no one ever responds to me! 

It's super frustrating, isn't it?! Good news is - there is a SOLUTION.

If you're not getting matched, head over here to find out why.

Follow these 3 simple steps and see the responses (and dates) come flowing in:

1. Judge the right thing.

And the right thing isn’t necessarily pictures…


I know, I know. Obviously we’re going to judge the pictures, but what’s more important to take a look at is the description. 

Guys who take the time to write something in the description (even if it’s short) care more about going on dates. Now, I’ve seen descriptions like ‘Only on here to date pretty college girls’ — obviously do not go for that guy. 

We’re all smart people, and I trust you to judge descriptions wisely.

Plus, we must always remember The Golden Rule — guys always look better in person.

2. Have a great opening line.

No one wants to receive a message that says ‘Hey!’. 

UGH, so boring. 

Guys want you to be engaging and exciting, the same way you want them to be, am I right?

For the opening line, you definitely want to ask a question, and dear lord please do not say ‘How’s it going?’. If I found out you said this, I will have to slap you.

A few of our favorites are below:

1. ’So this is my first day on Bumble, how am I doing so far?’

*This is fine to say even if you’ve been on Bumble for years, they don’t have to know*

‘2. So I have an extra plane ticket to Hawaii, want to come?’

*Feel free to switch up the location, but make it exciting.*

‘3. You seem like the type of person who’d be great at drinking beer, am I wrong?’

*Feel free to switch up what they're great at, but acknowledging they're awesome is what guys CRAVE - make them feel awesome.*

3. Follow Up.

Just like anything in life, people forget to respond or to even check Bumble. I’ve gone days without doing so and didn't even notice people were waiting for responses.

If someone doesn’t respond within two days, it’s ok to send them another note — the best line to do here ‘I gotta say *INSERT NAME HERE*, didn’t take you as someone who ignored people ;)’

Someone who follows up in a playful way exudes confidence, and shows that they don’t care about the result. The wink face is VERY important here to include.

By doing this, you’ll attract the right type of guy who simply forgot to respond and avoid the ones who are assholes and not looking for a date.
