Bumble dating app his nap Acacian focused towards women and empowering women. However in my experience Bumble has been very discriminatory against males and in fact even went as far as to block me for unknown reasons and left no contact information, no proof of why they blocked me and no response to my emails. I did nothing out ordinary. I never used any comments a sexual nature. Never violated anyone's rights. My pictures and profile did not violate anyone's rights or offend anyone. I contacted Apple iTunes who is the representative for them and they said that it's Bumble's problem. The only response that I had from Bumble was that my profile received many complaints and when I asked for proof and reasons why they provided none.

I think contacted iTunes again who is the representative, when I made them aware of the fact that I did not behave in any unjust manner I suggested that maybe speaking my opinions and being open might of prompted women to become annoyed and complain. However I believe stating an opinion is a right that every American citizen has. Again I am not sure why Bumble block me however this is the only thing that I could possibly think of as being the reason.

Like I said earlier I acted in totally mature and upfront manner... iTunes suggested that algorithms from the Bumble app might've picked up certain words stored them and then compared them to a complete. However if this is the case I believe that and computer algorithm is governing a company and leading an unjust decision against someone's rights to participate. Again I asked iTunes and Bumble for proof of these actions which would prompt them to block my profile and neither provided any information on this matter. Please advise me. Thank you.

I can spot racism when it happens. I made a stupid mistake and was kicked off Bumble. When I was first kicked off I went to their -Terms & Conditions (TAC) to find out what I had done wrong. I really had no idea. I am a military brat & I take rules very seriously. I was confused after reading it so I went to a forum of people who were banned. I was told that I was banned because I had sent sexy pictures in my messages & that my messages were not considered private. I must admit my comprehension is crap. It always has been mostly due to my sleeping disorders. I had read their (TAC) to say that "I couldn't 'Upload' pornography". So I thought this is so people didn't "Upload" them to the first pictures everyone else can see. When I put a picture in a message I don't "Upload" it, I just pull it from my gallery.

Also the last pic I sent was only of me in a sexy swimsuit, making a playful face. I'm extremely curvaceous & I have never been able to get away with the same thing ** girls do. Bumble's (TAC) says it will only give "Certain" people a warning? When I went and saw who the founder Whitney Wolfe was it didn't surprise me that I was not one of those people. You just get a feeling from her pic that she doesn't like beautiful, strong, ** women. Bumble also kicked me off the same day I renewed my subscription. They did it like within the first few hours after they took my money. They obviously knew they were going to ban me. Why take my money from me?

I wrote them this long letter explaining, and apologizing and asking if I could try a whole new profile and there would be no problems. I told them about my PTSD and the trauma in my life that made me that way. I told them how the app is like therapy at times because just having matches to flirt with makes you feel less alone. They never replied and kicked me off again when I tried to make another profile. Which I had put in my about me "Don't send me dirty pics or think I will send them to you. This is a classy joint". It was a declaration of the fact I knew I would never mess up again. It would not have hurt them to have allowed me to stay on the site.

    A friend recommended this site to me so I enrolled for 1 week. Many of the same face as POF and Match so there are many new people. I started a conversation with 2 people and somehow they were gone... as in vanished... Now I can't get in touch with them. At one point, Bumble asked me to widen my search so I did. Now I am seeing people from Ohio and Michigan. I live in a major metropolitan area... there are no men here? Not worth the time or money (and I only spent $8.99).

    Bumble in general no one really speaks to you. The support team are absolute twits and are 100% useless. I was with Bumble for a while and I had a issue. I wrote to them after not receiving any help at all. They deleted my account and said I cant use it anymore because I have wrote too many complaints because they wouldn't help me. Absolute **. I don't recommend this app. If you have the same issue, I'm sure the pathetic team won't help you either. It was nothing I did, just the software issues.

    A mate said to try Bumble. Firstly you need a Facebook account. I don't have one because I think it's very sad that people post pictures of their dinner in a restaurant... etc etc and say 'hey world look at me'!!! But I thought why not. I opened a Facebook account and signed into Bumble. Can't even get past the page that says 'you have to be 18 or over to use this site' just sends me back to the homepage... What a load of rubbish. Deleted Bumble app and deleted Facebook account. A total waste of half an hour.

    I am a user of five different dating apps and Bumble was the only one that blocked me. They also blocked me without any explanations. According to Bumble's guidelines: "If you don't follow these guidelines, you'll receive a warning. If you ignore this warning, you risk losing your account." I did not get any warning at all. So I was blocked from one day to another without warning nor explanations.

    The iOS app does not work properly. I've paid for a pretty pricey membership and the app does not unmatch people or block them when I've selected to do so. I've sent over 30 emails to customer service in the past 2 weeks and not a single response to any of my communications.

    The price is great. There is a lot of site that try and do this but they wanna feed off your emotions and your bank. These people just wanna help you and not kill you. I have found some really great people on here. The quality is top notch. I never seen a better site. I will say hands down this is top of the dating sites and I know I will love them for time to come. You can only talk to who you want. You do not have to worry about weird matches that does not tailor to you. I have never had a problem with them before and I hope not to. The use on the phone is so easy to use and very nice. I love how I can access it from anywhere and I don't have to worry. This site is so great and I will continue.

    The service was valuable because I was looking for a match for a friend of mine and even though no match was found I would try again. It needed to be more detailed because and have more options to contact them and have more free options. The matches were good. I think there should be more perimeters for it so people will get what they are really looking for and make sure that both people are safe - that they are not meeting someone dangerous. I think the privacy setting were okay. I think all privacy settings should be as secure as they can be but I know they can't because there is always a hacker out there who is smarter.

    Definitely a good value, a chance and new way to make new friends and possibly meet up. I would highly recommend this app to my friends who are looking. They are very good at matching you up with people who have a lot in common with you but sometimes they match you up with creeps. More often though, it's a good match. Honestly I don't know much about the privacy settings. I know you can block out things to people you don't want to see but other than that, I really haven't paid much attention to it. Definitely a good mobile app and mobile-friendly. I use the app on my iPhone and it works perfectly most the time. Of course it does glitch and close out some but not too often.

    These pictures of beautiful young girls motivated me to keep watching this site day in and day out. I have also recommended the site to all of my friends and family for the future. Great quality in all the matches that I have been hooked up with. Outstanding and amazing young girls. So pretty and intelligent. I do not know how anybody would go anywhere else for their matches. Very private on all materials offered on the site. I had to work my tail off on every entry to learn anything about them. Also, they were working just as hard to gain information about me. I use a laptop computer for all my work on this site.

    I think it was a good way for me to meet potential people to date. I am happy with their site. I didn't meet my lifelong partner on this site but met him on a site similar to it, so I know it's a great way to meet people. I think this site has enough search parameters that you can search for someone who is fairly compatible with what you are looking for. I was satisfied with the type of guys the searches resulted in. I felt like I was in control of how private my settings were kept and did not feel uncomfortable with the information that I allowed to be visible on the site. This site worked fine on my phone. I had no problems using it and am happy with how it worked. I would do it again if I was in a position where I needed it.

    It's kinda expensive to join in there for a monthly payment when you can't find the right man for you and keep searching for the date you want and ideal man you want to be with. There are lots of people joining in there but the profile isn't enough and most of the time they are just lying to have a good impression on their dates. Well as far as I know they make the privacy real good and everything is secure so I don't have any problem regarding that matter. It's also customizable and will allow you to do your own privacy settings. Oh it is mobile friendly, it can be access anywhere you wanna go, I just don't like it when I'm using my smartphone because it has a small screen and I can't see the person's profile properly.

    It was very valuable because I was able to meet quality, honest people. Therefore the money I spent was worth the effort and time and I do not feel like I lost anything. It was really perfect and they made a match within 24 hours no matter what and almost nearly got a perfect match for me based on interests and type. I was happy as they focus on safety and finding honest, quality people so never did I feel unsecure using the program and I was never at risk. It was awesome for me, I love the app and I had enjoyment using it and it is so user friendly that I showed a few friends and they want to use it now as well.

    I was not really expecting anything. I was just looking and it was fun to look. I got exactly what I was looking for from the site. I've talked with a few people, but nothing ever came of the conversations. I liked that they only matched you with people you selected. That makes it a little easier when you start a conversation with someone and eventually leads into a face to face meeting. I never felt like my privacy was at risk or anything like that, so I guess I was satisfied with the privacy settings.

    I like how easy it is to use on your phone. That allows you to only match with people who are nearby to you. For someone like me who was just looking through, it was also easy to do on my mobile and gave me a great ability to waste time looking through profiles.

    Great for networking and helps me meet people. Easy to use and get others to join. I have recommended it to a lot of my friends and extended things for my business. I use it for business so I do get good matches that turn out as friends that turn out as business associates. I have not been extremely active in being exclusive so I am still waiting on that one person. I can make changes as needed to edit what is seen by others and can completely disappear if I needed to. I am not very public on these sites. I think it may just be that I need a new phone because I have trouble on mobile so I generally just use my computer which is fine with me.

    Great way to meet some soul mates. They matched my profile with the other people of same interest and showed me the profiles to make friends with other people. I have option to share only few details which I opted for. Apart from that nothing more is shown to the viewer. Hello and hi, that's is it. Mobile experience is so handy.

    The value of people on the app was great, compared to Tinder. I found that the connections were a little more real and the people were a little more serious about being on dating apps. The matches were much better than Tinder. Better quality of matches. I was very satisfied with it. The people I chose to meet were great. The privacy is pretty good. It's pretty easy to find people, based on mutual connections, but for the most part privacy was good. It was good being a woman on there being able to do some research on my matches. Easy to use and navigate. The app probably isn't as fast as it could be for the volume of users it has. That being said, it is easy to use and understand.
