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 bumble bio above, we get the cute quip trifecta:
Mostly housebroken, highly food motivated
Blueberry girl from Willy Wonka is my goal physique
2. The Funny Bumble Bio
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 funny bumble 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.
3. 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.
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.
4. 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 ?
5. 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.

6. Three Things
It’s hardly worth going crazy on Bumble by creating a detailed list of everything you love. Instead, you can be more succinct and roll out the 3 things that mean the most to you right now, and which you hope will attract the right kind of match.
In our examples above, Veronica has kept things low key, which is totally cool. She loves her cat and she enjoys her food. Garrett, on the other hand, is selling himself by showing how successful and outgoing he is. Both types of ‘3 things work’. Which type you go for depends on your personality and the type of person you want to match with.
7. Observational Humour
Connor’s bio works really well because, while it may seem a bit left field, it’s actually really clever.
Because he’s using observational humour. Anyone reading it will go be like “Gosh yeah, I know that sound!”
If you’ve got a funny observation on life, don’t be afraid to add it to your bio.
8. Be Low Maintenance
Sometimes, Bumblers are just simple people with simple likes. They aren’t always looking to travel the world and neither do they work for NASA.
I know – hard to believe, right?
If the simple things in life make you happy – good food, your mates – put it in your profile. People can relate to that stuff!
9. Make Your Job Sound Funny
Can’t think of anything interesting to write in your Bumble bio? That doesn’t mean you’re not an interesting person. It just means you’ve got brain fog. If this is the case, it’s a good idea to make your job sound funny.
This is really simple to do, as demonstrated in the above example. Brian doesn’t simply give people a massage – he cracks their backs! Lol.
10. You’re Ready For Dating Disappointment
Let’s face it, dating sites can be a perpetual source of disappointment for many people. But while writing “Getting really frustrated with dating apps now” in your bio will be a major turn-off for most people, making a joke about it like Stephen did can really work in your favour.
11. Ready To Travel
As mentioned earlier, one of the easiest ways to get attention on Bumble is to say that you want to find a travel buddy.
It’s nice if you can combine this with a couple of other things you like to do because there’ll be more things for people to pick up on.
But if a travel buddy if your number one goal on Bumble, make sure people know it.
12. An Amusing Fact
I get it – writing a Bumble bio can be seriously hard work. What exactly do you put?
Although this article has (hopefully) given you some inspiration already, sometimes you’ve just gotta go with an amusing fact about yourself.
In his bio, Mikey tells us that he lost his phone and AirPods in a drunk taxi. It’s funny because it’s relatable – it could happen to any of us!
So make sure when you use an amusing fact about yourself to either make it extravagant (where it literally couldn’t happen to anyone else) or make it relatable. Both work.
More than anything, make sure it’s funny – okay?
13. I’m New Here
If you’re new to a city, you simply have to try the “I’m new here – care to show me around?” tactic at least once. It works like a charm because people will be queuing up to be your tour guide (as long as your photo is smooth anyway).
And it doubly works if you’re a Frenchman in New York City. Oh-la-la.
14. Strange Addictions
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.
15. Self-Deprecating Humour
The above example wouldn’t have worked as much if Emily had written “not to brag but I’m hilarious.”
That’s not self-deprecating. That’s just cocky 😉
By writing, “not to brag but six year olds think I’m hilarious” instead, Emily is poking fun at herself – which is always a winner on Bumble.
16. 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!
IMO, it makes up for one of the best bumble bios.
17. 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.
“Flowers, chocolate, or wine?” This is a question that just begs to be answered, am I right?
18. Three 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.
19. Emoji Extravaganza
If you’re not one for a lot of jibber jabber, you can keep your 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.

20. Suggestions Welcome
The thing with this type of one liner is that it does two things:
- It gives people an idea what to write in their first message to you (“I’d recommend you read …”)
- It flaunts your interests
21. Lead With A Dog Pic
Bumble is made for literally three things – killer one liners, travellers and dogs.
If you’ve got an awesome dog pic like the one in this example, you simply HAVE to use it.
Extra points for combining it with an edgy bio like this one.
22. Use Dark/LeftField Humour
Dark humour can work on Bumble if you get it right – in other words, you don’t offend everyone!
Liz, 23, does it well. This is an unusual quip to add to a bio but it works well on Bumble because it’s a killer one-liner that grabs peoples’ attention by being so different.
Moreover, she’s combined it with an amazing picture to show that, well, she probably isn’t actually weird. Major win.
23. Spark Curiosity
Abby is laying down a challenge in the example above, and she’s also sparking our curiosity. What is she really like? Well, we’ll have to swipe right to find out!
Pro tip: This works a lot better if your best pic is your profile pic.
24. This Won’t Work If …
Bumble is made for a killer “this won’t work if …” bio. If you’ve got an amusing dealbreaker, add it to your bio like the example above.
Pro tip: Keep your “this won’t work if …” light hearted. For example, “this won’t work if you’re bald” is offensive and won’t get you matches.
25. Just Make It About Coffee
When all else fails, just make it about coffee.
Because coffee = life, am I right?
Moreover, nothing beats a coffee date.
Except maybe a first date in Barbados. But you can’t have it all.
Bumble Bio Guide: (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.
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.
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!
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! 🙁
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?”
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 bumble bio, on the other hand, will show off these qualities while simultaneously earning you a right swipe. Boom!
Inside Scoop: How Does Bumble Work?
Good 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 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!
