===Writing a Great Bio===

#Present yourself as someone who has their life together. Everyone is a work in progress, so don’t worry about the questions you don’t have answered. However, people aren’t going to swipe right if you come off as a total mess. Create a bio that suggest you have a plan for your future, including career and financial goals. Make sure your profile presents you in the best possible light.[[Image:Make a Good Bumble Profile Step 9.jpg|center]]

#Explain what you'll bring to a relationship. People want to know what you have to offer them, so include this in your profile. Consider what makes you a great catch, as well as what your past partners liked about you. Use these details to create a short list of things you can offer your potential partners.[[Image:Make a Good Bumble Profile Step 10.jpg|center]]

#Avoid self-deprecating humor about food, alcohol, or bad habits. It’s hard to be funny in your dating profile, and sometimes your jokes just don’t come across. Unfortunately, the self-deprecating jokes that kill in real life may seem like a cry for help in your dating profile. Skip the references to binges, guilty pleasures, risky decisions, or unkempt living spaces. Make sure you’re showing yourself in the best possible light.[[Image:Make a Good Bumble Profile Step 11.jpg|center]]

#Eliminate cliches and gender-based jokes because they’re a turn-off. While they’re easy to write, these types of comments are doing you a disservice. Bumble has a reputation for being a feminist dating site, so people aren’t going to be impressed by your outdated jokes. Similarly, using cliches makes you seem unoriginal, even though that’s likely untrue. Don’t worry about being clever! Just be yourself.<ref>https://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/london-life/women-reveal-the-things-men-always-get-wrong-on-dating-apps-like-tinder-and-bumble-a3592526.html</ref>[[Image:Make a Good Bumble Profile Step 12.jpg|center]]
