How to Use Filters on Bumble to Find the Kind of Relationship You Want

At Bumble, we’re committed to introducing you to exceptional people in your area. While we’d love to connect you with every single person, we understand that your time is precious. For a more targeted approach to your relationships, we recently designed the ability for you to show others what you’re passionate about and filter for like-minded individuals.

To take advantage of Bumble’s filters, you first need to maximize the details you include about yourself on your profile. When editing your profile, you’ll see you have the option of adding icons that indicate your interests. We encourage you to add icons for the parts of your life that are especially important to you, like your form of faith, political leanings, and/or lifestyle preferences.

We’ve even made it possible to say what you’re looking for on each mode of Bumble. Have a Bumble Date profile? Tell your potential matches what kind of relationship you want. Bumble Bizz user? You can make clear whether you’re seeking a mentor or a collaborator for your next big idea. On Bumble BFF? Say you’re new to town or looking for other new moms.

Remember, for every icon you add, you’ll give your potential dates, friends, and professional connections a better idea of who you are — all while improving the chances of finding each other with Bumble’s filters.
