The Best Hinge and Bumble Prompt Answers

You’ve downloaded Hinge and Bumble. You’ve picked your photos and framed them just right. Now the list of short-answer prompts is staring you down and you’re gripped with writer’s block. What do you do??

What are the best Hinge and Bumble prompt answers?

I’ll make it easy: here’s how to have the BEST, guaranteed-to-get-a-response Hinge and Bumble prompt answers.

1. Be specific with your Bumble prompt answers.

What’s more interesting?

“I can’t wait to get a dog” or “I’m desperate to own a Chow Chow because of their crazy purple tongues”?

“I love traveling” or “Dream trip: Italy to personally sample and rank each pasta shape currently known to man”?

The more minute, niche details you can include, the more interesting. Start with a generic sentiment and comb through word by word, asking yourself if there’s a way to make each word more specific or in-depth.

2. Stay positive with your Bumble prompt answers.

How things sound in your head are not always how they’ll sound in someone else’s. Humor and self-deprecation are pros in my book, but make sure you have a few friends tone check your answers. Everyone wants to go on a date with someone who is fundamentally friendly and kind, not mean and sarcastic.

Which sounds better: “No drama please” or “Looking for someone mature, thoughtful and easy-going”? It’s fundamentally the same, but I know which profile I’d swipe right on.

3. Get the conversation STARTED with your Bumble prompt answers.

This is the big one: make it as easy as humanly possible for someone viewing your profile to respond. Say something about you, and then follow it with a question that invites conversation.

“Favorite feeling: pushing 70 on the highway, windows down, belting Motown. What’s the last song you screamed along to in the car?”

“String cheese: bite or peel?”

“Niece asked me if there are more windows or doors in the world, and now I can’t think about anything else. What do you think??”

It gets exhausting to come up with ways to respond to someone’s profile when you’re swiping through a whole bunch. This saves the person from having to expel any mental energy by coming up with a way to start talking to you – all they have to do is answer what you’ve already asked!

There’s a lot more where this came from over at my Mindful Dating 101 course—these are just 3 of the 19 do’s and don’ts for writing your Hinge and Bumble prompt answers.

And we haven’t even talked about the 30 Bumble conversation starters you get (for when you want to match and message with people who haven’t been as thoughtful in setting up easy-to-answer prompts as you)! All this and more is included in Mindful Dating 101.
