Friendship and real dating side

A symbiotic relationship where two people don't just grow together, but toward each other.

"So if we agree that common interests and values are the types of things we're all looking for in relationships, how can we be expected to find them in an app that sorts for first-glance aesthetics and the ability to write one clever sentence about yourself? Your filters aren't set for love; they're set for lust, and their equation for it is faulty at best.

Your best chance at not getting eliminated before you even start is to conform, in which case you arrive safely in the dating pool without any of the things that make you, you.

Dating apps reward homogeneity, sifting everyone into two-dimensional profiles that look the same, sound the same, and in some cases, even algorithmically identify which picture is best to represent you for the largest possible audience.

And love for most people seems to emulate that—a laborious growing process.

You might be surprised to know that the same profile tips we give for users on the dating side of the app still apply for BFF.

That is, upload at least four photos that show you doing things you love.

Finally, it’s just as important to photo-verify your profile on BFF as it is on Date; you want your potential matches to feel confident that you are who you say you are.

As you’re swiping through Bumble BFF, spend time reading what others wrote about themselves.

I wanted someone insatiable, someone whose eyes set ablaze when they talked about something important to them.
