  • Could be better

    By Hilly7519
    I downloaded this app after moving to a new state, and to be fair, I have made a couple of friends using it. To me, two small changes would make this a much better app. 1) Allow people to meet friends of any gender. In real life I have always had friends who were both male and female, and gay and straight. It’s weird and sad that the app restricts who can meet who based on gender. 2) Permit a bit more text in personal descriptions. The limited text doesn’t really allow me to highlight who I am AND what I’m seeking in friendship. This leads to a lot of wasted time and swipes.
  • Flaws

    By Why bumble
    Downloaded the app and verified my account with password. Tried to verify my phone number and it won’t let me.
  • nobody has showed up for a week now

    I’m not sure if I’m doing anything wrong and I expected others to have downloaded this app before, but I’ve never seen anyone shown up in my feed at all. I live in a very populated city too, and I’m reading that there is a pay wall which is a huge bummer!
  • It’s just ok

    By AvaJeremy
    I think people are a little confused. You are able to see your matches for free, you just can’t see who liked you unless you pay the subscription. Meaning either a)someone liked you and they haven’t shown up on your feed yet, or b)they were briefly in your area and then went out of range so you wouldn’t be able to see them in your feed anymore. My main issue with this app is that I don’t understand the algorithm. Like why don’t I see everyone all at once and instead just get a few profiles to see every so often? Like why are people appearing 3 hours later instead of before? And why don’t people show up again even after a few weeks? Also, the few matches I do get, people aren’t really willing to have a conversation anyways.
  • Umm waste of time

    By Deeezchef
    You have to pay around 35$ a month at the lowest to message people or see who liked you?!. Don’t even download.
  • Disappointed

    By ReadyFreddie88
    So if you are LGBTQIA+ they kind of just have you swipe through other queer folks as well. I appreciate that but, it also feels like they are putting us in a corner. I want to meet other people who have similar hobbies or foods —- not just based on our identity or sexuality.
  • Price Point 🤔

    By The Busy but Honest
    I just finished completing my profile a few minutes ago… But I’m so confused, In order to view who I matched with or look at more profiles to swipe right on… I have to buy a premium package? The cheapest package to try the app for a month is $34.99?? Who’s paying this amount every month? Seems steep… :(
  • No benefit

    By lebvet
    Just paid for subscription, zero more options then when i used the app without paying. Disappointed!
  • Cool concept

    By LeviLionBoy
    I think the app is a great idea, although there are a few issues for me. First is having to buy subscription to make friends or message others, the subscription is priced a bit much in my opinion just to have a shot at making a friend. Second I have found my account was blocked this morning, reading other reviews I see that is may be a common problem. I was totally confused and shocked, failing to understand what went wrong. Like the others who wrote reviews , I don’t believe to have violated the terms and conditions at all.
  • Ridiculous, can’t even use the app for intended purpose.

    By Crt7lilith
    I can’t even make any friends on the app because they keep taking down all of my profile pictures, no matter what I do, and even though the pictures obviously do not violate any guidelines. For example: took down a picture of me in a T-shirt with a car and few words on it, and leggings. Took down a picture of me in a full length, loose, long sleeve floral print dress. Took down a picture of be in a black hoodie with a face on it and black leggings and an Alaska hat. Took down a picture of me in a calf length red dress and black boots. Took down two shoulder-up selfies of me. All of these pictures are fully clothed & had no offensive words or suggestive material of any kind.
