Intro to Bumble
Bumble is one of the most popular dating platforms, and is an amazing way to connect and match with high quality women. The major difference between Bumble compared to Tinder, Hinge, Match, and other platforms, is that your match has to send the first message to initiate conversations. While that takes pressure off of guys to send an engaging ice breaker, this results in women selecting only the best potential matches to initiate conversations with. This means that it is critical to have attractive Bumble pictures and an eye catching Bumble bio that showcases your best traits. Read below for some best tips on creating a perfect profile.
How to Take Perfect Bumble Pictures
Attractive photos on Bumble is your life source for matching with high quality women. Women will swipe through hundreds of local guy's profiles, and if your profile doesn't contain high quality attractive photos, then you're more likely to be passed. The good news is, with some simple adjustments, you can easily build an extremely attractive profile.
How to take amazing photos for bumble:
Take clear photos without filters and during the "Golden Hours"
Take your photos outdoors and avoid artificial lighting. The exception to this rule is if you've hired a professional photographer that uses proper lighting equipment. Lighting is best during sunrise and sunset, known to photographers as The Golden Hours; during these times, its easy to avoid shadows and provide warm colors to our photos. Make sure none of your photos use excessive filters or are blurry. High quality photos are a recipe for success.
Use a variety of different shots that portray your attractive qualities.
You should be using your photos to showcase your most attractive qualities, interests, and accomplishments. Use portrait mode to capture headshots where you are smiling and remember to showcase your stylish attire. If you have a dog, now's the time the time to show your furry friend to the world. Pictures with animals not only shows that you are responsible, but it also demonstrates you as approachable and gives your Bumble match something to talk about in the first message. Use photos that show yourself enjoying your hobbies and interests. Whether it's a high quality photo of you hiking through international mountains, ripping it up on the basketball court, or enjoying brunch at a local restaurant, you want to show your potential matches that you're active and provide insight into what spending time with you might look like.

3 Tips For Writing The Perfect Bio (Link to Profile Guide)
After you've submitted your most attractive photos, now it's time to write a good Bumble bio that will catch the eye's of potential matches and have more women swiping right on your profile. Bumble limits each profile to 300 characters, so it's important to highlight attractive qualities in a simplistic fashion.
Tip# 1 - Include Your Occupation in an Interesting way
When writing about your job, focus on the underlying aspects of your occupation. A short statement on your job and why you enjoy it is more than enough.
Bumble Bio Example #1
"Digital Design Specialist . When I'm not traveling to major cities to speak with clients, you can find me enjoying new restaurants, taking the boat out on the weekend, or taking my dog, Champ, to dog beaches.
Love to travel internationally and planning a trip to Tokyo to this year.
Want in? Message me!"
Tip #2 - Include your Hobbies, Interests, and Accomplishments
Showcasing your interests can give your potential matches insight into how you spend your downtime. When writing about your interests, remember to show and not tell. You want to focus on describing the underlying benefits of your hobbies, interests, or accomplishments. Saying "I like to stay active and go out" doesn't paint a great picture compared to "When the laptop is closed, you can find me surfing and hiking trails on the weekend, or enjoying cocktails over brunch."
