Why Bumble’s Non-Dating App Might Win

Dating apps are based on the basic principle of bringing together people with similar tastes connecting them to form some sort of relationship. Now, the California mobile app, Bumble wants to take this ‘connection’ a step further and use its technology for users to network.

“Imagine if you could get a foot in the door by meeting people on an app. Welcome to ‘Bumble-bizz.'” Similar to Tinder’s app, Bumble’s new foray allows you to select beneficial business contacts with the swipe of a finger.

In the event that both users coincide in the common interest, both will have a period of 24-hours to connect and start a conversation about their business. If the 24-hours expires, the connection is lost. This means that both parties need to be engaged in order to make this work. To increase their success rate, users will be able to differentiate the personality of their profiles.

While the app has been out for a while, Bumble is constantly rolling out new features and functions beyond the dating world.

6 Tips for Online Dating in 2017

For some people, online dating might be a bit of a taboo, but for others it’s evolving into a daily routine for singles worldwide. The truth is that 80% of the population knows someone who is actively online dating and 60% know more than one person.

#1.)  Intentions

With much of the population using the internet to find love and with the almost equitable balance between the amount of men and women it could be said that it is a balanced sea in terms of male/female ratio. However, just as in the real world, in the virtual world people also omit details, lie or have different intentions. Most women are looking for something serious, while men are looking for someone to hang out with (of course this does not apply at all). Men tend to lie more than women in their profiles – they lie about what kind of relationship they seek by writing sweet things to generate more interest, however men fear to meet a woman who compromises them and limit their free time, while women fear actual dangers.

#2.)  Finding the right apps and websites

With a plethora of apps and sites to choose from, you can no doubt find what you’re looking for – singles, gay, farmers, religious views, ages, etc. If I were to offer a tip in this department it would be know what you’re looking for and to find an app or site that caters heavily to that group. Another way of going about it is to use sites such as Match.com and eHarmony, if only because they have a large user base and chances are you’ll find what you’re looking for.

#3.)  Numbers and statistics

In today’s world, 1 in 5 relationships start online. 50% of users are in a relationship, 20% are single, 10% are married. The average age in this world is between 18 – 34 years old, with 52% men and 48% women. The numbers lead us to conclude that most people use this medium to explore new possibilities outside their everyday environment.

#4.)  Precautions

In the virtual world as in real life criminals are everywhere and are sometimes difficult to spot. It’s important as always, to be aware that dangers could lurk, even on dating websites and apps.

#5.)  Is it possible to find love online? 

Amazingly, statistics show that the chances of finding love online are in your favor, especially when you consider the alternative which is to find people in real life. You can only go to so many parties and/or bars to find the soulmate you’re looking for. By using the internet as a tool you’ll be able to search, message, and analyze hundreds of users in a mere matter of a few hours.

#6.)  Choose the appropriate application or page:

The intentions of the people who use this online dating are diverse, so before choosing the place it should be clear that you are looking for, someone to talk to, someone to spend the night with or a serious relationship.

4 Ideas for Men Looking to Meet Women Online (or IRL)

If you have a smartphone and have a Facebook, and are looking for (quick) love, the Tinder app (on iOS or Android) is the place you want to be.

However, this application is specifically channeled toward a certain – “let’s get laid tonight!” mentality. If you’re looking for true love, this might not be the best play.

As a reminder for newcomers, Tinder is an application of geolocated encounters, on which you are offered profiles with the photo of the girl, her first name and age, and possibly description. You can “approve” or “deny” her at first glance. So it’s a crazy ton of profiles that you can explore in a fraction of a second.

Once you’re “matched” with the girl, it’s good but we must message to her. At this point, many men are wondering how to approach Tinder, which is why I wrote this article for you.

Without further wait, here are the 4 best catch phrases to seduce Tinder successfully 🙂

1.) Call her by her first name message

One approach that girls are not used to is that of the first name. Why do you think that is?

Nothing could be simpler, you have her first name followed by an exclamation point: “Jamie!”

This extremely simple approach and statistically has a very good response rate, as it stands out of the ordinary for women who get the same basic messages from men.

After that, you just have to increase, either by continuing on the indirect path “What are you crazy about in life? “Or by being direct – “Tinder says you’re only 2 miles away from me … What are you doing tonight?”

On Tinder, test everything to see what works, failure does not matter!

2.) Mention a  detail on her photo?

Another approach is to point out a detail on one of the girl’s pics.

Maybe she has a crazy shoes, or rad lipstick, or a cute hat that looks a bit quirky and hot at the same time. The more obtuse you can be the better. Remember it’s all about standing out in a sea of basic messages.

It can also be a pet, indeed you will see a lot of girls taking pictures with their cat or their dog.

At that point you just have to make your creativity work out of the moment: “He looks cool your cat, what’s the rascal’s name?”

3.) Common interests

Tinder also displays the pages you have liked in common on Facebook. So, if the page comes out of the ordinary (a hobbie, a cause that is close to your heart, an artist, an original film …), take advantage to bounce directly on it. This can quickly create a commonality and will allow you to quickly get her phone number.

“Hey X (always put the first name), I saw that you liked Star Wars (geeky!) so I felt obliged to send you a message! ”

A catch of this type allows the girl to bounce back on this precise subject to feed the conversation. As for you, it allows you to expand on something else of the same theme: “This film makes me think of X”

Be quick, there are a lot of people on Tinder and a lot of men who are there to “pounce”, so do not waste your time. Boring discussions of weather or “what’s up?” are quick fails.

4.) The most direct: “Yo, what are you doing tonight? “

Some women don’t want to waste their time with guy they will never see again for the most part. For this, I advise to adopt a very direct method: “Yo X, what are you doing tonight? (Or another derivative of this). Depending on his answer you suggest “We’re headed to a bar The Library at 9pm, last one there buys drinks!”

Get her number before or after the proposal and confirm over SMS.
