22 Unhinged Bumble Conversations That Prove Dating Is a Hard Nut to Crack | “Does Your Shampoo Give Cuddles?”
The generation before the 1890s was oblivious to the term, 'dating' but times have evolved and people now look to 'date' possible suitors in the virtual world. The prevalent term was 'courtship' before George Ade, a columnist for the Chicago Record coined a new term, 'date' in 1896.
Initially, people discovered their romantic partners through mutual friends and family, acquaintances and colleagues at the workplace. These options are still available, but an additional route to find a "dating prospect" has emerged—online dating apps like Bumble. "According to a global survey conducted in 2021, respondents who belonged to Generation Z reported spending on average three hours per day on social media. Overall, millennials stated they spent 2.25 hours daily on online social platforms," per Statistica. So for a generation like this, finding a mate on apps like Bumble seems convenient though the apps' effectiveness in helping Gen Z find long-term partners can be debatable. Some conversations on Bumble can be like a maniac's dream—hilarious and totally unhinged.
With over 50 million active users, Bumble boasts of having confident, intelligent, fun-loving and ambitious prospects. A subreddit, Best of Bumble has a collection of hysterically awkward screenshots of profiles and conversations, and we have picked 22 of the most unhinged ones for you.
