Everyone knows that one of the best ways to get more matches on Bumble is to craft a really great bio. Aside from your profile pictures, the bio is the single most important element of your Bumble profile—but no pressure! Rather than sweating over the perfect wording, just relax and try these best Bumble bios guaranteed to lure more bees to your hive on Bumble.
Best Bumble Bios Tips For Guys & Girls:
1. The Cute Quip
Humor rules the day on online dating apps, and Bumble is no exception. A funny quip or three never hurt anyone, and it may help get you more matches. Take a look:
In the awesome bio above, we get the cute quip trifecta:
Mostly housebroken, highly food motivated
Blueberry girl from Willy Wonka is my goal physique
2. 3 Random Facts
There’s no way you can explain your life story in 300 characters or less, so don’t even try to cram it all in. Instead, just provide other Bumble users with three simple, random facts about yourself. These can literally be any tidbits of information about your past, personality, preferences, or pretty much anything else, but you’ll get bonus points if they’re funny or quirky.
3. The All-Out Joke
The bio above may not be the funniest, but it does provide just enough information to get the wheels turning. For instance, why in the world would anyone get two master’s instead of one doctorate? And two master’s in what? Inquiring minds want to know!
Did we mention humor is in on dating apps like Bumble? Seriously—try using a joke in your bio and see how many more matches you get. It doesn’t even have to be a good joke. Check out the bio below, for example:
You see, Matthew doesn’t expect to get a genuine laugh. An eye roll and a right swipe will suffice.
4. About “You”
Flip the script and write a bio about your ideal match. This tells other Bumble users exactly what you’re looking for, so it can be helpful for weeding out those who aren’t compatible. And bonus—it also makes you look selective, which is the opposite of desperate. Try something like:
You: Never tires of compliments, likes tacos and kissing in the rain. Has a convincing fake laugh to boost my ego when I try out new jokes.
Although this bio describes the match you’re looking for, it also says a lot about you too and gives the other person an idea of what it would be like to date you.
5. Strange Addictions (or Just Weird Things You Like)
Do you dip your Doritos in mayo? Do you collect rubber duckies? Strange quirks are actually quite appealing to many online daters—as long as they don’t get creepy. At the very least, listing these funny preferences and pastimes can help you stand out from the crowd. That may be all you need to get a right swipe.
6. Likes & Dislikes
Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to avoid all things negative whilst on dating apps, but if you can balance your dislikes with likes and maybe even throw some humor into the mix, you can build a solid profile that actually says something about you.
In the profile above, Megan pulls this technique off brilliantly by mentioning dislikes that are pretty much universally loathed and then following it up with “people who always have something negative to say,” which effectively makes her sound like a positive person (even though she just said something negative). Tricky, tricky!
7. The Multiple Choice Question
This type of bio is clever because its intent is to lure other users to not only match with you but to message you as well! Just include a simple multiple choice question in your bio.
For instance: “Flowers, chocolate, or wine?” This is a question that just begs to be answered, am I right?
8. Emoji Extravaganza
If you’re not one for a lot of jibber jabber, you can keep your Bumble bio simple and let the emojis do the talking for you. Include as many as you want; just make sure the ones you select describe you or your preferences. Once the match is made though, you’ll want to swap the emojis for some good old-fashioned communication.
9. The Listicle
Your Bumble Bio isn’t a school assignment, so don’t worry about writing in full sentences. Just make a list—hopefully, your match will check it twice 😉
10. The Listicle + Emoji
Why not use two bios in one—the listicle plus emoji? The more, the merrier, right?
Here, the emojis don’t really add any new information and one could argue they’re unnecessary, but we think they add a fun element to the bio that’s super appealing.
4 Bumble Bio Don’ts (Pitfalls to Avoid)
If the Bumble bio examples above just don’t do it for you, that’s ok. There’s nothing wrong with being original—in fact, authenticity may be exactly what you need to get you that right swipe. Just don’t go completely rogue. If nothing else, avoid the pitfalls below so you don’t become another casualty on Bumble.
#1—Don’t Skip the Bio Section on Bumble
Even if you’re not the best wordsmith, don’t skip the bio section altogether. Yeah, we get it—you just want to get to the fun swiping part, but you won’t get the honey without the work on Bumble. Just trust us, the bio is a crucial step.
#2—Don’t Be Like Everyone Else
If you’re not getting matches on Bumble, it’s probably not because your bio is bad; more likely, it’s because your bio is ordinary. And after reading a couple dozen of these, they all start to blend together—take it from someone with a lot of experience on dating apps. What you need to strive for is a bio that pops with originality, not commonality. Be different!
#3—Don’t Get Too Serious (or Negative)
Bumble, like most other online dating apps, is intended to be fun, so keep your bio light. Don’t get serious or negative. If your puppy just died, for instance, save it for a conversation—don’t plaster your sadness all over your bio. PS—Sorry about your puppy! 🙁
#4. Don’t Tell—Show!
One of the most common mistakes people make when writing bios on Bumble is that they tell other users about themselves. You might be thinking “Well that’s what the bio section is for, right?” Not exactly. It’s much more effective to show someone your personality in the bio section that to tell them about it. Telling someone you’re smart and funny, for instance, sounds braggy and quite frankly, lame. Writing an intelligent, witty bio, on the other hand, will show off these qualities while simultaneously earning you a right swipe. Boom!
Key Takeaway—Keep Your Bumble Bio Fun!
Bumble bios can be intimidating, and you might think they have to be perfect in order to earn a right swipe. Nothing could be further from the truth, though. There are so many different ways to create a great Bumble bio, and you can really just relax and have a good time with this section of your profile. Just remember to keep it light and fun, and you’ll be on your way to creating a buzz on this hot new dating app!
