i was on here almost a month and had zero matches but quite a few people who liked me that i couldn’t see and wasn’t paying to see.i tried speed dating 2 weeks in a row and was only matched with 1 person close by,the rest were in a different city 30 minutes and further away.random women would message me then as soon as i would respond back they’d ghost me and sometimes their location would even change to mine,then i’d never hear from them again.it’s a boring useless app,DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME
Took me a second to catch on. But yeah this app is a scam, maybe at one point it was not but I can assure this app is a scam. I’ll explain. I’m a fairly attractive guy never had any issues with the opposite sex. But I’ll get straight to the point. Initially what they do is get fake accounts to like your profile. But I’m order to match you have like theirs as well or pay, however bumble has no intentions of showing you these fake accounts. They’re there so you’re forced to pay to see them. They are not real people. They will never message you and will simply let the time expire I’ve had at least 6 of these that just let the time expire. That isn’t normal. And again they will never appear on the list. The other thing I suspect is that they will also put your profile way to the back of the list so no one ever gets to it. I believe there’s probably s small number of profiles that are at the top and the rest and hidden away and women would have to swipe thousands of times to get to you which is not going to happen. The ratio of men to women is incredibly lob sided so we have a surplus of men so no matter what there’s a big chance your profile is on the back of the list on the algorithm and no one is going to see it. I believe this is by design it’s pretty sad. Now bumble is going to reply with their AI that they’re “sorry I had a bad experience” they’re going to pass my complaint to the bumble “team” look fellas, stay safe. This app is the biggest predator here.
They all start with “hey” and expect you to carry the conversation. What a shift in dating dynamics, bravo.
A lot more scammer/fake profiles than before. Many features are now gatekept by their pay walls. Used to be a great app but now not so much. You constantly see profiles with “I never check this, msg me on IG!” I feel like this was their downturn and they haven’t done anything about it. Those who have that in their profs and/or never login create these profiles solely to gain more social media followers, and is a huge disappointment for us who are genuinely looking for matches. Your algorithm should push users who actually login, message people, and whatever other user activity stats. Very disappointing
I have to say it’s a waste because you have to pay to see who swiped on you… I don’t think that’s fair.
This app is terrible. it rarely shows your profile if you’re a guy, most of the time you have a slim chance of making a matche
Bumble thrives on the loneliness of people and if they genuinely cared about match making and did so properly, they’d eventually not have as many paying users. Therefore, it’s in their best interest to actually stifle your success at finding someone. With that said, they have a plethora of paid tiers all aimed at getting you SLIGHTLY closer at meeting someone, but there’s also some other service you gotta buy: boosting your profile, unlimited swipes, leaving complements, etc. One night I wanna a bet with a friend and had some extra cash and decided to give bumble premium a try. I thought that with the ability to swipe unlimited, for SURE I’d make a good number of connections—WRONG. At one point it got so ridiculous, I stopped reading profiles and just mindlessly swiped just to test my theory that their algorithms were actually geared towards preventing me matching with people. Unsurprisingly, even after quite possibly HUNDREDS of swipes, I got maybe 2 matched, no lie. Either I’m that ugly of a dude (which I don’t think so since I match reasonably well on other apps) or they’re putting me in some kind of queue that, unless you pay for their “boosting” service, you won’t be seen ever. Don’t buy premium, in fact don’t pay for anything on this app, it’ll be a waste of your money. I won’t be buying premium again, stupidest waste of money.
Please bring back the ability to comment for guys. It’s hard enough to get matched on here and if I do girls let the time expire. I had one date recently from here and the only reason I got that was because I got to comment on her profile. All I’m asking for is just one free comment to have per day.
You have to pay to see who liked your profile.
I have deleted my profile four times then started again. Each time I have matched with a person I shall call engager bot Reina. She sends a rather bland, non-specific text, and I reply in kind. Then the engager disappears. there isn’t even a profile (like 2 others) that shows she disconnected . The last time she sent a text at 4:10a in the morning, saying good morning I hope we connect soon. Who is up at 4:00 doing that stuff? i’ve got the screen capture to prove this one Another ended chat (her profile shows), but it says she ended chat 31 Dec, and it was May. U want our money for this sketch stuff?
