Remember: as you can only like the profiles of folks who are the same gender as you on Bumble For Friends, either person can Make the First Move! To help break the ice, here are our top tips for sending the first message to your potential new bestie:
- Mention your mutual interests
- Reference one of their Life Badges
- Come up with a compliment
If you’re still unsure what to chat about, try the AI Icebreaker feature to help you come up with some suggestions!
It can be nerve-wracking to put yourself out there to find friends online, but remember, people on Bumble For Friends are here to make new pals too. If someone is being intentional about making friends, they’re probably going to be excited that you started a conversation.
