OverviewSuggest Edit

Bumble is a social discovery app with a unique twist: encouraging women to make the first move. Using a modern day Sadie Hawkins concept, Bumble creates a selective and meaningful environment for connecting with and discovering new people.

The woman always makes the first move, and if she doesn't say something to a new connection within 24 hours, that connection disappears forever!

For same sex connections, or friendship, either person has 24 hours to make the first move, or that connection will disappear!

Feel like 24 hours just isn't enough time? No problem. We let you extend one connection for an additional 24 hours each day.
