If you are a bachelor or a teenager, you would’ve probably heard of Tinder, the dating app, which helps you in finding the right person or partner. It was a great app when it came to market, though meeting people online is an old concept. Finding the right person just on a screen might feel delusional and a vibe of a weak relationship, though converting into a real date covers it all. Tinder is a totally a location-based social search mobile app that allows users to like and dislike your desired sex which you can customize as per the desired needs. It also allows users to chat if both parties liked each other in the app. Simple, isn’t it? Using the right technology for the better good, and whats harm in finding your significant other.

My Experience: I have been using tinder for like a year, and I have got more than a dozen matches, I did have great conversations with people but what I find is people usually lack the creativity to communicate. Every person I met had the same line, “hey” or “Sup” or some other cliche intro. And when I ask some of my female friends about it, they all had one thing in common, men using offensive lines and that thing affects most of our conversation as your introduction carries 90% of the weightage for your further communication. Overall, my experience was average, though I wasn’t satisfied, obviously.

So, I was watching “God friended me” last weekend on Netflix, and there was a dialog in there, “Bro, nobody uses tinder nowadays, everyone is on Bumble,” and without waiting any further, I installed the app. So, this app is not just all about dating but making friends and networking locally as well and comes with the same concept of swiping to a match. So, I used the app for like five days and bam, I had five people on my match queue, and that was just electrifying and peculiar at the same time.

So the question is how I got a better number of matches? No, I did not swipe right all of them. The primary cause was better category information which a different look out for, such as zodiac signs, whether he or she drinks + smokes or not, whether he or she is a graduate or not, whether he or she has a pet or not. What I felt like a unique experience with Bumble, which was women empowerment, and prioritizing women communication in the first place. If you have a match, then the female has the only right to begin the conversation.

Those five matches might be pure luck. But what I can definitely assure you is more awareness about your match.

Women empowerment is much more of a defeated concept in the real world as it said by more people, but practitioners for the same are very few. The best thing about bumble is that the female match has the only right to start a conversation which might offend males, but is the right thing to do as much more men try to approach women and, 70 percent of the men try to communicate with coercion, which is definitely wrong. And another benefit I feel is that what’s better than a woman approaching you all by herself, it kind of gives you a thrilling vibe.

Enough about dating, let’s talk about the friend feature, also known as bumble Bff, where you can meet random people in your local. This is just another piece of concept of having a friends circle, I mean the number of times we make friends face to face has been significantly reduced, so yes, you can meet that potential friend who live next to your street, but you haven’t interacted with him or her yet, as you never go there usually.

Another one is all about creating business related networks in your local, also known as bumble bizz, I haven’t tried that properly but expect to create a potential business network that I want to achieve. You might be wondering that why I don’t use LinkedIn, but I already did that and well, It was great in the beginning, but now it is just becoming another Facebook, so yes, amen to that.

Overall, this was just another opinion by me, which might help you in some way. Clap if it works for you, and if it doesn’t, let’s meet you in the comment section.
