Making friends as an adult can be challenging (polite way of saying it's the absolute worst), especially if you aren't someone who regularly strikes up casual conversations with strangers. Bumble BFF wants to help make meeting new friends easier, albeit a little more awkward.
Bumble is the dating site you've probably heard of, but now you can switch to BFF mode to meet new friends. It's a great way to meet new friends if you've recently moved to a new city, are a new mom, or just generally want to make new friends. It's basically Tinder for friendships.
Here's how to switch from dating mode to BFF mode
- Open the Bumble app.
- Select the Bumble logo on the swipe screen.
- Select Bumble BFF from the next screen.
- Start swiping.
You'll need to create a profile if you don't already have one, which is clearly going to be different than a dating profile. Bumble suggests choosing pictures that show your personality, as opposed to showing your best angles. The bio you write should sum up your awesomeness, obviously.

Once you've set up your profile, you can start swiping right or left on people. When you match with someone, you can then start a conversation and potentially meet up in real life. It'll likely feel like a date, but if your personalities vibe, it should start to feel like hanging out with a friend in no time (because that's literally what you'll be doing). Online friendship-ing is weird and awkward, but ultimately, if you make at least one new friend, it'll totally be worth it.
