Unveiling the 13 Best Bumble Prompts & How To Answer Them

If you’re on multiple dating apps, I’m willing to bet you’re on Bumble (and if you’re not, ​download it right now!​). Bumble is one of the most popular apps out there, because it appeals to a diverse range of users and couldn’t be more user-friendly – or more likely to get you matches. One feature of Bumble that separates it from other swiping dating apps is its use of prompts in addition to your bio. Bumble prompts offer the perfect opportunity for you to showcase your personality and wit, as well as easily spark interesting conversations. In this guide, we delve into the world of Bumble prompts, providing insights into what makes for the best Bumble prompts and how to craft compelling answers to them.

Q1: What are Bumble Prompts?

Bumble prompts are short, thought-provoking questions or statements that you can choose to include in your profile, separate from your bio. ​While your bio is about you holistically​, the best Bumble prompts dive deeper into your more niche interests, values, opinions, or personality quirks in fun and engaging ways. By answering these prompts, you can give your potential matches even more ways to start conversations with you by covering a diverse array of your interests and preferences, posing questions or debate topics, and providing the opportunity to let your unique tone of voice shine.

Q2: What Makes a Bumble Prompt Answer Successful?

The best Bumble prompt answers are those that are specific, positive, and conversation-starting.

For specificity, consider the difference between a generic statement like “I love traveling” versus a more specific one, like “My dream trip involves a culinary journey through Italy, sampling and ranking every known pasta shape.” Isn’t the latter so much more interesting? Plus now your match can engage with you about a whole host of things: cooking classes, favorite cuisines, past trips to Italy, favorite pasta shapes, their own travel dreams… just by adding in specifics, you’ve created an endless list of topics for your match to choose from!

Maintaining a positive tone in your Bumble prompt answers is also crucial. Remember, you want to project an image of someone who is fundamentally friendly and kind. For instance, instead of saying “No drama please,” try a more positive spin like “Seeking someone mature, thoughtful, and easy-going.”

Lastly, your Bumble prompt answers should ideally serve as conversation starters. For example, after mentioning your favorite song to belt out during a drive, you could ask, “What’s the last song you sang along to in the car?”

Q3: Can You Share Examples of the Best Bumble Prompts?

You bet I can! Here are a few examples of effective Bumble prompts that have actually worked to spark engaging conversations for my clients. Remember, if this answer isn’t accurate to you and who you are, you shouldn’t use it! The key is to come up with answers like these and make them about you and keep it fun.

1. My real-life superpower is:

Being able to name every Best Picture nominee from the last 10 years. What’s your guess for this year’s winner?

2. It’s meant to be if:

You can banter with Aaron Sorkin-like speed and precision (and are always down for a West Wing rewatch).

3. What gets me out of bed in the morning:

Aspiring to reach Queen Bee on Spelling Bee. What’s your ranking of the NYT games? (Crossword, sudoku, Wordle, Spelling Bee, Connections… and Tiles, I guess?)

4. I’m still not over:

My childhood crush on Paul Newman. I still religiously buy Newman’s Own salad dressing so I can see his smiling face in my pantry 😂 Seriously, how good is he in The Sting!

5. A pro and con of dating me:

Pro: Vast knowledge of 2-player card games to keep us entertained for hours; Con: very competitive about said card games.

6. My current obsession is:

Wikipedia deep dives instead of Instagram scrolling. Go read the Wikipedia page for the novel Frankenstein and its iconic author and tell me that wasn’t more fascinating and dramatic than seeing your college acquaintance’s photos of visiting their in-laws!

7. I’m known for:

My knowledge of esoteric showtunes. Why do I need Gilbert & Sullivan lyrics taking up so much space in my brain? I don’t know! Please tell me you also have a category of random useless trivia at your disposal!

8. I’m prioritizing my mental health by:

Regularly driving 70 on the highway, windows down, singing Motown at the top of my lungs. What’s your go-to car karaoke song?

9. My love language:

Playful debates. For example: string cheese. Which is the correct method of consumption, biting or peeling?

10. What holds my attention:

Are there more windows or doors in the world? My niece asked me this, and now I can’t stop thinking about it. What’s your take?

11. I get way too excited about:

Choosing playlists to perfectly accompany whatever cuisine I’ve cooked for dinner. You’d be SHOCKED to learn how many songs have “shrimp” in the title!

12. Something I’m optimistic about:

I will accomplish my New Year’s resolutions of walking 12,000 steps a day (any route recommendations?) and reading 35 books (what are you in the middle of reading right now?)

13. I’m hoping you:

Are down to (occasionally) come cheer for my weekly ultimate frisbee league. If you do, I promise I will both buy you a drink AND teach you a fancy frisbee-throwing trick like a chicken wing or a scoober (those are real names).

Remember, the goal of these prompts is not only to reveal something about you… it’s REALLY about making it as easy as possible for someone viewing your profile to respond.
