Use Bumble Prompts To Get More Dates! [Expert Profile Tips]

Bumble Prompts are the perfect way to spice up your profile.

They used to be called My Move Makers, but the premise is still the same. Just like on Hinge, you choose 3 prompts from a selection of 30+, and your answers are displayed in between your photos.

Here some of the topics up for grabs:

  • Two Truths and a lie
  • My 3rd grade teacher described me as…
  • The person/thing that holds me the most accountable…
  • Most recent act of kindness…
  • After work you can find me…
  • Beach or mountains…
  • Childhood celebrity crush…
  • Nightclub or Netflix…
  • If I could donate a million dollars, it’d be to…
  • I feel most empowered when…
  • Equality to me means…
  • If I had an extra hour in the day I would…
  • If I were famous, it’d be for…
  • Favorite quality in a person…
  • We’ll get along if…
  • Go-to song is…
  • I’m most grateful for…
  • If I could guest-star on a show, it’d be on…
  • Ideal night out…
  • Most inspiring person I’ve met…
  • My go-to karaoke song is…
  • My mother would describe me as…
  • Must-see movie…
  • If I could eat only one meal for the rest of my life it would be…
  • Perfect first date…
  • My perfect Sunday…
  • The person I text the most…
  • My pet peeve…
  • I quote too much from…
  • The three things that make a relationship great…
  • My secret skill…
  • If I could have a superpower it’d be…
  • If I had three wishes, I’d wish for…
  • Greatest travel story…
  • The world would be a better place with more…
  • If I could solve one world problem, it’d be...

The selection of Bumble prompts you can answer changes periodically, and it's a perfect way to refresh your profile every once in awhile.

But you need to be strategic about which ones you choose, because some prompt answers will make you seem like a more attractive prospect - and others could do the opposite.

Check out which prompts will give your profile a boost, and attract the high-quality people you want to date most!

Keep Your Bumble Prompt Answers Short & Sweet

You have a 120-character limit for each one, but that doesn’t mean you need to use up all that real estate. Your answer displays in a small yellow box, so short, simple statements have more immediate impact than long, complex sentences:

Be mindful of line breaks, punctuation and grammar, because any mistakes stand out like a sore thumb:

And if you need more motivation to take proofreading seriously, consider this: a recent study found that the majority of singles polled thought bad grammar was a bigger turn off than bad sex. Yes, really.

Make Strategic Choices

This may seem obvious, but a lot of guys simply pick the easiest Bumble prompts to answer and call it a day, without putting any deeper thought into what they wrote.

For instance, these prompts are popular choices:

But how many times do you think she’ll read the words “Beach” and “Netflix” before getting bored? And how much does a one-word answer really contribute to your overall attractiveness anyway?

Instead of taking the obvious/boring route, write something like this:

Scuba diving is an attractive hobby - it involves travel, and requires both physical fitness and a healthy sense of adventure. See why stopping at just “beach” is a missed opportunity?

The best Bumble prompts to answer let you highlight an attribute women generally find appealing, but in a conversational way that doesn’t sound like bragging.

Think about the type of woman you’d like to date, and what traits she’s likely to have on her list of ‘must haves.’ For instance: sense of adventure, successful career, financial stability, strong family ties, etc.

Then, pick the prompt that best lets you illustrate how you embody one of those traits.

Start With These Bumble Prompts

Prompts like these naturally lend themselves to showcasing an attractive trait:

  • Greatest travel story. Not only does sharing a few details about a trip show her you’ve got the means to travel, but it also shows her she could be in for some awesome adventures.
  • Two truths and a lie. This prompt allows you to make some bold claims without sounding like you’re bragging.
  • kindness
    Most recent act of kindness.
    A perfect place to mention any charity work or volunteering you do, or just let her know you’re the kind of guy who opens doors and rescues puppies.
  • After work you can find me. A natural place to let her know you’ve got an active, interesting social life.
  • If I were famous, it’d be for… This is a great spot to share an intriguing or creative hobby.
  • Ideal night out/My perfect Sunday/Perfect first date. She’ll be picturing herself along for the ride, so make it good. In the interest of variety, only use one of these 3 My Move Makers in your Bumble profile.
  • My secret skill. Another good place to mention a hobby, preferably one that will benefit her - who doesn’t want a guy who can rehome spiders or fix whatever breaks around the house?

Avoid answers that are inherently negative, because those don’t do anything to elevate your profile.

For instance, it’s difficult to describe your pet peeve without sounding like you let life’s little irritations bother you enough to warrant mentioning them on a dating app (read: whiner):

Dating profiles should generally always be positive, and that’s especially true when they’re short. She’s interested in learning more about you, not what you don’t like.

No matter which prompts you choose, take a minute to ponder what your answers could be communicating between the lines. It doesn’t take much to give her the wrong impression, like these guys did:
