If you are in your 20’s and 30’s, you probably have heard of Bumble. Millennials dominate this platform probably because of its women empowering feature.

It is up to them when to initiate the conversation. It still is consensual as they can’t just message anyone without matching first. You can swipe right the people that interest you as some details are available for you to screen. The only thing that you have to look out for is the next 24 hours after matching. There’s a time set for you to be able to keep the conversation. If you want to skip the hassle part, you can pay the premium!
Fun fact, more than 100 million individuals are using Bumble! Millions of users, one could be your future date this February 14.

All these three sites and applications are just instruments you can use in finding the one for you. Like any other instrument, it has its limitations too. Its effectiveness of use depends on the person handling it. Let this be a reminder that you are in charge of your life. You do what you want to do for so long that it does not trespass someone else’s privacy. Also, there is no shame in wanting to know how it feels having someone to run to, someone to talk all your worries to, and someone to call your home. Searching for love when it can’t seem to find you is okay. If being with someone this Valentine’s Day will fill your heart with joy, by all means, find someone. You are amazing, you are beautiful and you deserve to be happy.
