The world of dating has gotten exponentially more difficult since dating apps like Tinder and Bumble have become part of our everyday lives. It's such a tricky world to navigate and it seems like everyone is looking for something different.

It's seems like men are only interested in getting women into bed and women are struggling to find the few guys that are looking for something more. This isn't always the case but it definitely seems like how the dynamic typically plays out.

If you're a guy and you're wondering how to get more matches on Bumble, how to have a productive conversation or how to actually land a date, read on and find out what mistakes turn women off on Bumble!

The Huge Mistake

I think this one is pretty obvious. The fact that a lot of guys think their first interaction with a girl they probably want to hook up with is to send them a d*ck pic really baffles me, and I think all women, honestly. This is a HUGE no-no on dating apps!


What You Should Do Instead

Instead of sending a d*ck pic immediately after matching with a girl, just say something nice! It can't be that hard to give her a sweet compliment or just ask her how her day is going. Honestly, anything is better than nudes, okay?

If we don't answer you after the second or third message, it's most likely because we're not interested or have stopped using the app completely. Whatever the reason, don't hound us will multiple messages trying to get a response, that just doesn't work.


What You Should Do Instead

There is no reason to keep annoying someone that's clearly not into you. Just get over it and move onto the next, after all that's what Bumble is all about! There's plenty more possible matches you can find on this app.

There is definitely such a thing as being too honest, especially with a complete stranger on the internet. There's just no real reason to tell someone all your sexual desires. Maybe save that for later, much later.


What You Should Do Instead

Nobody wants to hear what you like in bed, so just keep it to yourself, no exceptions! Unless someone explicitly asks you about your sexual preferences you should never share them, it's really not appreciated at all.

Women love receiving compliments, it's true. But there's a fine line between giving a constructive compliment that will make her feel good about herself and one that is purely for your pleasure and will result in her feeling super creeped out. This compliment is 100% the latter.


What You Should Do Instead

If you don't know how to give a good compliment, just tell them they look nice in their first pic or they have really pretty eyes. Avoid talking about them like their a sexual object and you're good to go.

Try and hold off on propositions like this completely, okay? If a woman wants to sleep with you they're most likely going to want to get to know you a bit first before she decides, so there's nothing good that can come of sending a message like this right away.


What You Should Do Instead

There's no good way to word a question like this so please, just don't ask it okay? You will absolutely come off as a fvckboy if you say something like this, so if that's your intention you should probably reevaluate who you are as a person.

Calling out a girl for having a small imperfection like asymmetrical breasts is not going to get you any points on Bumble. There's no good that can come with insulting someone you just met over the internet.


What You Should Do Instead

Every woman knows that breasts come in different shapes and sizes and we're all pretty comfortable with what we have, so if you're not happy with it that's mostly your problem. If you feel the need to insult someone you don't even know over the internet, it's time to put Bumble down for a while and come back in a few days.

Your bio is just as important is how you interact with people and a bio like this will most likely get you very little matches. Sure, he has exactly what he's looking for in his bio to find like-minded people, but he won't get much deeper than that most likely.


What You Should Do Instead

If that's exactly what you're looking for on Bumble, I guess there's nothing wrong with stating it up front. But if you're looking for more than that it's probably best to not do that. Don't come across as a creep in your bio, that definitely won't help.

The main problem with this message was of course the immediate proposition for sex but also the fact that he called his d*ck a wiener is also kind of concerning. A wiener is something you eat...


What You Should Do Instead

I feel like a broken record on this article by having to say don't solicit people for sex immediately after matching with them on a dating app. Try some small talk and see if you two have anything in common, ask them on a date, and then maybe ask if they want to sleep with you.

This guy could not wait one message to bring up his d*ck in conversation. Not sure why he thinks making a girl guess if his is small or large is a good idea, but he did for some reason.


What You Should Do

Again, just don't bring your penis into conversation until you actually know the person. She tried to start a fun conversation to see if you two had something interesting to talk about and instead you threw your d*ck into the mix. Just don't do it man.

This guy has some weird, sexist and political agenda that he couldn't wait to bring up into conversation. He seems like a really angry dude that is just generally unhappy, so why is he on a dating app?


What You Should Do Instead

I honestly don't think there's any way to fix a guy like this. He has his terrible opinions and he probably can't help but express them to people who weren't even asking in the first place. My advice would be to just get off dating apps basically.

Clearly this guy was trying to be a little bit playful with the conversation but obviously she wasn't feeling it anymore. It's not a bad thing to try to spice up the convo with a little flirting, but in that case, timing is everything.


What You Should Do Instead

Instead of jumping right into dirty talk, try throwing out a few wink/smirk faces to see if she's feeling the flirting first. Then you can crank it up a notch. Jumping right into naughty pickup lines isn't always fun with a stranger.

This guy thinks he's being super casual. I'm not sure he thinks that this line will actually work on women. But if he does he should probably rethink it because I don't know anyone that would respond positively to this message.


What You Should Do Instead

Again, girls love compliments so try saying something nice instead of treating her like she's only there for sex. I promise, it's really not that difficult! Just say something nice like her hair looks pretty in her second picture or she has a nice smile and you're good to go!
