Getting a Bumble Date (With Screenshots)
If you’re not familiar with Bumble, it’s basically the same thing as Tinder except guys can’t send the first message. Also, your matches only have 24 hours to contact you or they’ll be deleted.
Bumble doesn’t have a paid version, so you get unlimited swipes.
I haven’t been using it long, but so far I’ve noticed that women on Bumble tend to put a little more effort into their openers, in contrast to women on Tinder or OkCupid, who usually just write Hi or Hey what’s up on the rare occasions that they send openers.
I decided against chiding her for her improper use of your, even though her bio said she’s a writing professor.
Seeding the date as early as possible can make it easier to transition into legitimately planning a real date later on.
She responded favorably to the suggestion of a date, but followed up with a comfort-building kind of question; so the best course of action for me was to build more comfort before trying to finalize details of a date. Maybe she wasn’t quite ready to commit to a date at this point, and I might have blown it had I pushed too hard.
After spending some time building rapport, I directed it back toward the date. Whether you’re interacting with women online or in person, it’s best to seed your goal for the interaction early. Women appreciate the clarity of your intent, and you’ll have an easier time maintaining purpose for everything you say, as opposed to aimlessly trying to string the conversation along.
