You can now talk on the phone now without sharing your personal phone number. Once you matched with someone you have the option to call. Men can only call after the first match. But that is awesome and it has happened at the right time...."Summer Time" I kept wondering why every time she sent a message it said YOUR MOVE. Bumble is about to eliminate online dating sites for good with this feature.


Only downside I see to this is it will increase the number of times someone flakes on you. Meaning that you can decide to not meet someone you made plans with if you get a "new bee in your hive"

Do work there? That platform sucks. If I find myself in OLD land again, that's the last place I would go.

Wait...if youíre a guy itís not only that you have to wait for the woman to message you first, but even after the first message you have to wait again? Is that why the men are so well behaved and donít send me 5 messages in a row? Nice. 👍

That's already been litigated here. It's essentially a shameless Tinder clone (probably should be paying a royalty) + a layer of inequality. Plus where I am no one really used it much. Match was and I suspect still is way better.

Also, I don’t flake. I can see all 39 bees I have in my cue at once. The downside for me is matches expire if I don’t contact them. I only talk to one person at a time.

Match is a $1000 a month and has tons of fake profiles. Bumble is free and matches you with Local singles in your area and you don't have to share your credit card number or phone number. I have a date scheduled for tomorrow evening and it cost me $0.00

OP: are you getting paid to pitch Bumble here? Serious question. Good luck with your date tomorrow though!

Regarding this feature:
1. I'm not big on phone calls, probably wouldn't use this.
2. POF already has something similar.
3. Can't you call with Snapchat or Facebook Messenger, without giving out your #?

No I just never seen a feature like this before and thought it was kinda cool. I like sharing good news for people who use online dating and can put sites like match out of business which seems to be a scam.
