I recently started the online dating see, which to me is an awful experience no matter what site I use. What ever happened to talking in the gym, or parties? I first started with tinder and that is no different than Bumble.
Being savvy in website building and tracking, I quickly realized that the profiles seemed fake, or vacant. There are companies that sell fake profiles for dating sites and teach the owner of the site, how to play the real customer into buying upgrades. Millennials asked for this scamming because they want dating sites to be flooded quickly with profiles and have instant gratification.
Before I start on bumbles review, I did actually meet a lady on Bumble who was really nice, looked like her pics, but not much of a match. She told me, shes been on the site for 4 months, and has not talked to, had a return match message, and certainly has not met any man from bumble, till me. I also met a nice beautiful match on Tinder, but that’s for another review. Real profiles do exist on bumble, but very few, and you have to swipe many times before you actually find one. Instagram ladies, are on both Tinder and Bumble solely for the purpose of getting IG followers.
Back to Bumble. I was told about Bumble by a friend of mine who did not use Bumble but was told by another friend that it was ok. So, I tried it and still trying it. I am convinced, after swiping through over 1000 ladies profiles,with only 2 ladies that actually spoke on the phone and 1 meeting me, that Bumbles profiles are mostly vacant, abandoned, or were purchased fake profiles.
Since bumble makes the lady reply first on a match, one would think a lady would respond better than “Hi” and or “Hello”, with no other dialogue. When I responded to those matched messages, the lady said nothing more. Mind you, a guy can NOT message the lady till the lady has accepted your match and messaged first. Even more frustrating, if the lady changed her mind, after her initial “HI” message, you would think she would delete your match and move on, but that wasn’t the case. The matches would just sit there in you message box, eventually and automatically delete after 24hr.
I even said to the messaging ladies “Hello are you still there?” “Should I delete our match if you’re not going to continue messaging”? Still, I got no reply. This tells me, it’s a moderator sending a initial contact to lead you on and stay on the site to buy or membership upgrades.
Women by nature are investigators, and read everything. If they matched with you, that means they pre read your profile, maybe looked you up on line and then message with many questions, eventually wanting to talk on the phone. Since, this only happened twice out of 1000+ profiles, and 11 matches that never contacted with their initial message, i am sure this site is a scam. But I didn’t stop there!
I then decided to show my websites, allowing the ladies easy ability to look me up directly. My websites have traffic counters which show where a searcher entered, with city locations, dates and times. After, I added the websites URL’s I returned to endless swiping of profiles not discriminating anyone. When I looked for the next 48 hours on my click counters, not one person used those links. Hmmmmm.
As for all the reviews on here, they are spot on about their experiences. Customer contact is poor, they come back with weak answers and in my opinion, monitor your profile so harsh, they prevent you from having freedom of speech.
Having done my swipe test on Bumble, I can safely say it’s a big FUMBLE and a scam site. In my opinion, Apple should take them off the app store.
