Bumble has a unique approach to helping people find the connection they seek online. 

Unlike most dating apps, where anybody can send messages, Bumble empowers women to take charge and start the conversation within 24 hours of a heterosexual match.

This simple rule creates a more comfortable environment and fosters a respectful and intentional expression of interest for women.

So, as a woman matching with men, knowing how to start a conversation with your first message from a guy on Bumble will go a long way. Our tips on responding to common greetings on Tinder can help you out.

There's a free daily extension on Bumble if you miss your 24-hour window of matching with someone. The extension allows you to extend a match's expiration and hit them up regardless.

In addition, you can increase your chances of getting a response by purchasing SuperSwipes. It lets your potential bumble match know you're interested in them before matching.

Bumble's latest policy update allows anyone to make the first move if one person is nonbinary or the two people are of the same gender match.

Asking a question also works as it aids the need for a deeper conversation. Be witty about your conversation starters because funny Bumble opening lines have a way of standing out.

Here are examples of the best opening lines for Bumble:

Lead with interests:

  • "I see you're a fan of [band/artist]. Tell me about the best concert you've ever been to."
  • "I find your love for [hobby] intriguing. What about it do you find the most enjoyable?"
  • "Your passion for is so [cause] appealing. What exactly motivates you?"

Based on photos:

  • "What's your dog's name, and how do I get its adorable face to like me?"
  • "I love how adventurous you are. Where's your next travel destination and why?"

Open-ended questions:
