What Is Bumble Date Mode  – How To Switch Between Modes

The most well-known Bumble advancement was allowing women to initiate the first interaction in a match. The community appears to have benefited from the interaction restrictions. Women are more likely to use the app because they have the option of responding or not. This reduces the number of unwanted and inappropriate messages significantly.

Bumble is a dating service, but it’s not the typical dating app. This ground-breaking dating app goes to great lengths to convince users that it is about much more than just dating, and it backs it up with action in the form of BFF (Bumble Best Friends Forever) mode. Bumble BFF is a useful app for making friends, whether you’ve just moved to a new city or want to expand your social circle.

In this article, you will know about the data made of the bumble and how you can switch between modes.

What Is Bumble Date Mode?

Bumble turns to a normal dating app system in dating mode, where you swipe left or right based on your choices. To use the Bumble date mode, simply go to the Bumble app’s homepage and select Date mode from the drop-down menu. You’ll be redirected to the dating homepage right away, where you’ll see your potential matches.

Bumble began as a dating app, and 99 percent of its users join with the goal of finding their soulmate. Users can select their preferred mode, and they are not obligated to use it in the future. After you’ve set up your dating profile, you can contact women and men in just a few minutes using this mode. 

You’ll need to upload a lot of information about yourself if you want to succeed in any Bumble mode. This platform is well-known for the fact that it is always the women who must make the first move. 

You can use multiple Bumble modes at the same time and keep separate profiles for each one. Bizz and BFF connections will display a label on the user in your match queue to help you figure out which mode you connected in. After you’ve chosen your preferred mode, go to your encounter screen and look for new connections.

How To Switch Between Modes?

Bumble makes switching between dating and BFF mode very simple. When creating a Bumble profile, you have the option of setting it up in BFF mode, Dating mode, or Bizz mode (for networking and business of course). 

Once you’ve figured out how to use the app, switching between modes is a breeze. You can always turn date mode off if things with another user start to get serious. You can also use the snooze mode option to temporarily hide from other people’s stacks.

You can switch modes if you already have a Bumble account by following these steps:

  1. After you’ve opened the app, tap the profile icon in the lower left-hand corner.
  2. In the upper left-hand corner of this screen, tap the settings cog.
  3. Select ‘Choose Mode’ from the drop-down menu.
  4. Select BFF, Date Mode, or Bizz Mode from the drop-down menu.
  5. Accept the pop-ups and begin searching.

If you want, you can use Bumble dating and Bumble BFF at the same time. Colour-coded conversations make it easy to tell which is which. 

The fact that both modes use the same profile is one of the most difficult aspects of mode switching in Bumble. Only potential friends of the same gender can be matched with you.

How to turn off date mode?

To turn off Date Mode and notify others that you are unavailable, follow these steps:

  1. On your phone or tablet, launch the Bumble app.
  2. In the lower left-hand corner of the home screen, tap the profile icon.
  3. Toggle the ‘Date Mode’ option on or off (grey) for date mode or BFF mode, respectively.
  4. Start swiping for people you know.

Note: You won’t be able to see your potential love matches once you turn off the Date mode on Bumble; instead, you’ll be able to find a new best friend or business partner. You can, however, return to this mode at any time.

Is it possible to delete one mode but not the others?

Yes, you can delete your Date mode while retaining your Bumble BFF and Bizz profiles! 

Follow these steps to remove your Date mode:

  1. To get to your Settings, tap the silhouette icon in the upper right-hand corner of the app, then the grey gear.
  2. Toggle off the button next to ‘Date Mode’ to turn the mode off.
  3. When you tap the toggle, you’ll be notified that your dating profile and all of your connections will be permanently deleted in Date mode.
  4. There is currently no way to delete your BFF or Bizz profiles. Your profile, on the other hand, will only be visible in the mode you’ve selected.

The bottom line

Bumble is a totally free dating app, and you can access all three modes with just a few simple clicks and completion of the registration process. Each of these modes can be accessed for free, but if you want to improve your app experience and boost your profile, a Bumble Boost or Bumble Premium subscription is available.

Instead of hooking up or dating, Bumble’s BFF mode allows users to make friends with people of the same gender. Swipe left to dismiss them and right to indicate that you’re interested; if they swipe right on you as well, you’re a match. 

I hope you find the information useful.
