Most break-ups happen because women are forced to get into relationships they don’t feel fully comfortable in. It’s part of a nearly worldwide social conditioning for women to have fewer choices, and to rarely throw the first step. This leads to unhappy relationships. What if women were to make the first move and choose whom they want to date?
Bumble helps them do this.
Whitney Wolfe Herd, who founded Bumble back in December 2014, was frustrated by the traditional way women were involved in relationships, and she promised herself to change that. Bumble is a revolutionary dating app that grants women the option to make the first move.
The application is structured similar to other dating apps, with slightly better features that make finding a match easier. Today, we’ll talk about one of these often mentioned features known as Prompts. Bumble Prompts let you give clues about your unique personality for faster matching.
Tips To Write Your Bumble Prompts
How you build your Bumble profile depends on your dating goals and the personality traits you want to reveal, but there are a few pieces of advice you should keep in mind to build a captivating profile. You should refer to these four tips while creating your Bumble Prompts for more quality matches:
- Clearly Show Your Intentions. Some consider dating a game of hide-and-seek where you need to be as secretive as possible if you want to find someone who appreciates. But being honest about your intentions matches you faster with the person you desire. So make sure this is obvious in your answers.
- Be Specific in Your Answers. People hate generalities. Regardless of how unimportant your likings, passions, hobbies, or personality traits might seem, state them in your answers. Being specific will set your profile apart from others and attract matches who really like you.
- Keep It Positive. Pointing out the negative with the excuse that you’re being realistic doesn’t make you attractive. Your profile should resonate positively. People love being close to those who are inspiring and can lift their spirits when they’re down.
- Keep It Playful. The line between being realistic and dead serious is quite blurry so make sure you instill a little bit of playfulness into your profile. Maybe there’s a joke you’ve really liked or a recent event that’s making headlines all over the news. Use that in your dating profile.
Overall, these are a few tips you should keep in mind if you want your profile to receive matches. Does it still seem vague how you should respond to these prompts? Don’t worry. We’ve crafted some answers for you to steal.
Here we have collected the full list of 57 prompts you can choose while creating your Bumble profile. To make your job easier, we’ve given brief advice and plenty of example answers you can use.

21. I quote too much from…
Revealing your favorite subject you quote sayings from says a lot about what kind of content (movies, books, articles, etc.) you consume. For instance, someone can instantly figure out that you’re into philosophy if you quote often Alan Watts or Nietzsche. Some potential answers here could be:
