Bumble is a unique dating app, with its very own matchmaking system. This system allows all users to see who liked them only if it is mutual. Of course, there’s more to it than that.
Premium users can see people who they haven’t liked back. Keep reading, as there’ll be some practical advice that you can apply to get more matches, as well.
How to See Who Liked You
You can only see who liked you on Bumble when you like them back if you are a regular user. However, people who subscribe to Bumble Boost unlock many extra features, such as seeing their admirers. Admirers are people that liked you, but you haven’t yet liked them back.
Your admirers appear in the Beeline if you are a premium Bumble user. The Beeline is part of the Match Queue in Bumble. The Match Queue is the part of Bumble where you can see all of your regular matches (when mutual liking occurs).
It sounds confusing, but when you see it first hand, it will be much more apparent.
Access the Match Queue
When you get the app updated and ready on your phone or tablet, you can access the Match Queue:
- Launch Bumble on your Android or iOS device.
- Sign in, if needed. We suggest using the Facebook sign-in because it makes profile setup faster.
- Select the chat option in the top-right corner of your screen.
- You will see the Match Queue (circles with people’s pictures) with all your matches.
You can begin chatting right away. Tap a person’s icon, and you can send them a message. If you are a woman, you can send the first one. Guys have to wait for their matches to message them first, but they have some options to let their match know they are interested. We will explain that later, but now let’s talk about the Beeline.
The Beeline is on the left side of the Match Queue. It is a green circle; tap it and see your admirers (if you are a premium user).
Bumble Premium Benefits
Besides access to the Beeline, with Bumble Boost, you also get the ability to make your matches last longer. Usually, matches only last for one day. In a straight match-up, a woman has 24 hours to send the first message.
Same-sex matches are equal, meaning that anyone can start the conversation first. Bumble Boost also lets you rematch with someone you like if the match expired.
Another excellent premium option is called SuperSwipe. It enables you to notify a person that you like them very much. The SuperSwipe costs one Bumble Coin, which you can buy separately within the app. Just tap the SuperSwipe option, and you can buy some coins instantly.
SuperSwipe is the heart icon in between the Pass and Like (swipe left or swipe right). Save this option for the girls or guys you like a lot. Finally, there is the Spotlight option.
With Bumble Spotlight, you make your profile stand out, giving it improved visibility for half an hour. The Spotlight costs two Bumble Coins. Note that these are the current prices for Bumble premium features and that they might change in the future.
How to Get More Likes
Depending on your location, Bumble can have a lot of competition. By now, you’ve probably concluded that using Bumble’s premium options gives you an advantage, but they’re not enough. Start with some tasteful photos that turned out great. Launch Bumble, press Edit Profile, and then tap the Add icon at the top of the screen to upload one as your new profile pic.
Then, write a bio (about me section), and make sure to finish it with a question. It can be anything, like “What’s your favorite food?” Next, fill out all the essential info, work, and education info, and write some profile prompts.
Try to stay honest when providing all this info. If you act like yourself, the chances are higher that people will like you. Finally, you can connect other accounts if you want (Instagram and Spotify).
People will be able to see your profile when you match, so filling it with cool photos and exciting details about yourself can’t hurt.
Getting matches on Bumble isn’t easy, and neither is dating in general. However, with the useful tips in this article, you’re armed with the knowledge you need to overcome any obstacles. Remember that you’ll need some patience and courage to make the moves on Bumble.
However, your diligence will pay off eventually. Please tell us if the tips helped you, and how you like Bumble so far. Did you subscribe to the premium option, or you’ve managed to get matches without it?
