6 Ways To Perfect The Art Of The Bumble Bio

6 Ways To Perfect The Art Of The Bumble Bio

Do you go funny? Smart? Cute? Do you even write one at all?

Ah, crafting your Bumble bio. Do you go funny? Smart? Cute? Do I write one at all?

We all know there is nothing more uninteresting than looking to see a guy with either no bio or “Uh I don’t know what to put here so just ask me!” No thanks Jeff, I’ll find someone who knows how to write a bio. Your bio doesn't have to be some long drawn out detailed paragraph about who you are and what you’re on Bumble for— but give us something to work with! Let me show you how it’s done ladies.

1. Get What You Want

We are all on Bumble for different reasons. Are you looking for Mr. Perfect? A new girl squad? Just wanting to find an attractive male to fool around with? Free drinks? Instagram followers? Pointless conversation? The list goes on and on. You can find just about whatever you want on Bumble, but you have to be straightforward with what you’re looking for.

Example: “Why aren't you buying me beatboxes at The Study right now?”

2. The Deal-Breakers

Everyone has those “no way in hell this is going to workout” triggers. Are you 5’9 and refuse to date someone shorter than you? Do you absolutely hate guys who wear cargos? You can’t stand people who love Donald Trump? Whatever it is— don’t be afraid of putting it out there. Use some humor to just let the other person know “tread lightly this is a touchy subject.”

Example: “If you wear cargos and ‘Make America Great Again’ t-shirts, let’s not waste each other’s time.”

3. Automatic Attraction

Who doesn't have a type? Maybe not an “all my ex boy’s looked like brothers” type, but we all know there are qualities that automatically grab our attention. Tall, dark and handsome? That mysterious hipster from the coffee shop? The guy from the gym that you’re pretty sure could lift a car off of you? Go ahead, put it on there! There is no shame in going after exactly what you want.

Example: “Searching for a guy who lifts weights to look good naked… after eating a whole box of pizza.”

4. Give Me the 411

Nobody is looking for an autobiography, but it wouldn't hurt to know a little bit about who you are beforehand. It can be anything from a bible verse, your favorite football team, a quote that you live your life by, and so on. Attractive pictures are great, but the bio is really where you can learn about someone. Once I read a bio where he said “Eats ribs by the pool,” and that’s all I needed to know. We were soulmates.

Example: “I’m looking for someone to re-watch every episode of “The Office” together. As Michael Scott would describe me: Big Butt. Bigger Heart.”

5. Showcase Your AUX Abilities

There’s nothing worse than handing your new Bumble Bae the AUX and regretting it. Talk about awkward! This all would have been addressed earlier if the Spotify feature was given as much credit as it deserves. Do you hate country music? Do you listen to Beyoncé on repeat all day? Or are you stuck in a 90s music playlist? Let your matches see what you’re listening to, and consider their musical choices. Something like agreeing on music might seem so small and insignificant, but I promise you’ll appreciate it.

Example: “Do you know all the words to “Closing Time” and willing to sing it on the way home from the bar? If not, are you willing to learn?”

6. Be You

Your Bumble bio is all about you. I’m not saying there isn't a way to do it wrong, because let’s be real, 300 words or more is wrong. But there is no “wrong” information. As long as you’re being yourself, your matches will already have a look at who you are. We see millions of generic bios, don’t be afraid to stand out with yours.

Example: “I did my 3rd grade science fair project on laundry… If that doesn't make me wife material I don't know what does.”

Bumble is a female empowering dating, friend finding, and networking app that takes the pressure off of guys and puts the women in charge

If You've Ever Been Called Overly-Emotional Or Too Sensitive, This Is For You

Despite what they have told you, it's a gift.

Emotional: a word used often nowadays to insult someone for their sensitivity towards a multitude of things.

If you cry happy tears, you're emotional. If you express (even if it's in a healthy way) that something is bothering you, you're sensitive. If your hormones are in a funk and you just happen to be sad one day, you're emotional AND sensitive.

Let me tell you something that goes against everything people have probably ever told you. Being emotional and being sensitive are very, very good things. It's a gift. Your ability to empathize, sympathize, and sensitize yourself to your own situation and to others' situations is a true gift that many people don't possess, therefore many people do not understand.

Never let someone's negativity toward this gift of yours get you down. We are all guilty of bashing something that is unfamiliar to us: something that is different. But take pride in knowing God granted this special gift to you because He believes you will use it to make a difference someday, somehow.

This gift of yours was meant to be utilized. It would not be a part of you if you were not meant to use it. Because of this gift, you will change someone's life someday. You might be the only person that takes a little extra time to listen to someone's struggle when the rest of the world turns their backs.

In a world where a six-figure income is a significant determinant in the career someone pursues, you might be one of the few who decides to donate your time for no income at all. You might be the first friend someone thinks to call when they get good news, simply because they know you will be happy for them. You might be an incredible mother who takes too much time to nurture and raise beautiful children who will one day change the world.

To feel everything with every single part of your being is a truly wonderful thing. You love harder. You smile bigger. You feel more. What a beautiful thing! Could you imagine being the opposite of these things? Insensitive and emotionless?? Both are unhealthy, both aren't nearly as satisfying, and neither will get you anywhere worth going in life.

Imagine how much richer your life is because you love other's so hard. It might mean more heartache, but the reward is always worth the risk. Imagine how much richer your life is because you are overly appreciative of the beauty a simple sunset brings. Imagine how much richer your life is because you can be moved to tears by the lessons of someone else's story.

Embrace every part of who you are and be just that 100%. There will be people who criticize you for the size of your heart. Feel sorry for them. There are people who are dishonest. There are people who are manipulative. There are people who are downright malicious. And the one thing people say to put you down is "you feel too much." Hmm...

Sounds like more of a compliment to me. Just sayin'.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
