Making The First Move With Bumble


I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be continuing on in the Hive as a city rep with Bumble. As a city rep, I serve as the heart and voice of Bumble in San Francisco and an extension of the Hive! I help support local marketing campaigns, plan fun events, and foster partnerships with local businesses and brands to build community. 


What is Bumble?

I think we can all agree that healthy relationships, romantic, platonic, and familial, are central to living a positive, productive life. Bumble is a social network that allows you to feel empowered while you make those connections, whether you’re dating, looking for friends, or growing your professional network. Bumble empowers women to make the first move, which helps to shift old-fashioned power dynamics and encourage equality and equity in relationships.

Bumble was first founded to challenge the antiquated rules of dating. Now, Bumble empowers users to connect with confidence whether dating, networking, or meeting friends online. Bumble has made it not only necessary but acceptable for women to make the first move, shaking up outdated gender norms. Bumble prioritizes kindness and respect, providing a safe online community for all of us to build new relationships.

One of my favorite things about Bumble is that there is a zero-tolerance policy against rude/abusive language and behavior, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, racism, hate speech, and bullying. They don’t tolerate fake profiles, scammers, or spammers. Ensuring the safety, privacy, and comfort of all users is their top priority. If you see something, say something #ProtectTheHive

And if you’re a numbers person like me, here are a few stats:

  • The app currently boasts over 47M registered users and counting

  • 71K users are joining everyday

  • 818M first moves and 19M matches have been made.

That’s a lot of potential. Ready to #MakeTheFirstMove ?


Isn’t Bumble just a dating app?

Nope! Bumble is a social network rooted in promoting kindness, respect, and empowerment, Bumble provides ways for everyone to make genuine connections. Bumble is the first app of its kind to bring dating, friend-finding, and career-building to a single platform. Users can scroll and create connections in the following ways:

  • BumbleDate

  • BumbleBFF

  • BumbleBizz

So, what are all the different modes? Great question!

Bumble Date 

On Bumble Date, Bumble is leveling the playing field to change dating dynamics. Bumble believes all relationships should begin with respect and equality. Bumble provides opportunities to safely and easily connect with others.

 Bumble BFF

Whether you’re new to a city or looking to expand your social circle, Bumble BFF is a simplified way to create meaningful friendships. As our lives evolve, so does our need for authentic friendships. Bumble BFF was created to make it easy to build a supportive community around you — no matter where or who you are.

 Bumble Bizz

Career opportunities come about when you expand your network. On Bumble Bizz, you can pursue a career change, meet team members, or become a mentor.


How does Bumble differ from other dating apps?

Bumble encourages women to make the first move in all aspects of life. BumbleDate also has the lowest abuse rate amongst all other dating apps and highest post-match chat rate.

Why does Bumble Bizz exist?

Current ways of networking are antiquated. Bizz brings users immediate connections, and direct access to others looking to network. Bumble believes that one connection can change your life.

Bumble’s goal is to give you the power to change your professional life from the palm of your hand. Every match is an opportunity to expand your network and make empowered career moves.
