And in her experience, Bumble tends to involve “too much talking” for someone only looking for something casual. Tinder Pros: At this point, “Tinder” and “hookup app” are practically synonymous.
It’s the original, one of the most popular, and the one to go to if you want the widest possible pool of options.
With other apps, “so many times, we just sit on matches and nothing happens,” she says.
By design, that can’t happen here: The finite window of time to start up a conversation with a match is a good push to get things rolling.
The only difference is “you having to start the conversation” (in opposite-sex matches, Bumble requires the woman to message first).
Cons: The never-ending influx of possibilities can feel like a bit much: “It almost never stops refreshing, so it was just this constant stream of people,” Busa says.
“It was just a little overwhelming.” Plus, there are some situations where you really just don’t want to match with anyone in close proximity, like work or a family gathering (luckily, though, you can turn the location-tracking off and on to avoid any awkward moments). Bumble Pros: To Busa, the biggest draw of Bumble is its chat expiration feature.
