It works in a similar way to Tinder, the only difference is that Bumble only allows women to start a conversation with their matches and they have just 24 hours to do so before the connection disappears. The idea is to stop women getting loads of sleazy messages – but I have it on good authority that some men are taking advantage of this and view the app as an opportunity for them to 'sit back and do nothing', while women ‘rush around trying to message the potential loves of their lives in 24 hours.’ Not exactly the epitome of equality… This is one of the biggest dating sites out there, and a lot of people I know have had relationship success here.
The bonus is that users can fill in a lot of information about themselves, so you can tell who's after casual sex and who wants more.
A possible drawback could be a limited number of users – those figures aren’t available online - but it does look like a good app if music plays a significant part in your life and loves.
