Example of Tinder vs Bumble

Interface and Profiles

Firstly, Bumble and tinder have both been around for quite a few years now. Tinder was founded in 2012 and Bumble two years later in 2014.

Both applications want you to start swiping as soon as possible.

Here we clearly see that Tinder is much easier to setup. Make the profile and GO!

Bumble wants you to fill in more information. The advantage of this is that you personality will be expressed a lot more allowing potential users to get to know you a lot better!

Male to Female Ratio:

Secondly, when looking at the overall amount men and females on the app we can see interesting facts:

On Tinder men outnumber women 2 to 1. As a result, competition under men to date woman is way more tough!

On bumble it’s about equal 50% Men: Woman 50%. Therefore, Men and woman have more equal chances.

Type of App

Tinder is more geared towards casual dating. Just sign up start texting and exchange numbers..

Bumble is created to be a female friendly application. It attracts women who are more serious about finding quality matches and something more long term. Additionally, Bumble also has a BFF mode for being just friends and a Business mode for networking.

Premium and Extras

Both have a free standard interface with an option to upgrade. Bumble boosts starts at $9.99/mo. You will see who already liked you. Next to that, you have the option to rematch, giving the women 24 hours to consider sending you a message.

Tinder on the other hand also has an upgraded package with $9.99/mo [under 30]. It allows for unlimited right swipes, super likes, and one free Tinder boost per month. Moreover, you will also have the ability to change location with Tinder Passport. More info on Tinder Gold and if it is really worth it can be found here.

Social Distancing

Since COVID, Tinder and Bumble have both tried and implemented multiple features.

It’s now possible on both applications to video call each other.

Bumble takes the lead on this one, as it also provides its users with audio notes, a blog full of social distance dating tips, and the ability to chat to people via a wider radius.

Tinder also has a new option to show that you are vaccinated by adding a badge/sticker to your profile.

Furthermore, Tinder’s Passport feature allows you to swipe all around the world. This was especially great during the lock down, where you were able to chat to someone on the other side of the world

The Verdict

To conclude, if you are looking for quality over quantity then Bumble has a clear win.

If you are looking for a sheer number of potential matches then Tinder wins.
