Dating apps often get a bad reputation for being full of creeps or people looking for quick flings and one-night stands. But, as is the case with most things, people tend to focus on the negatives and overlook the positives. Not only can dating apps be a great way to connect with people romantically, but they’re also a wonderful way to meet new friends while traveling. Bumble, in particular, is an excellent way to make new friends thanks to its BFF feature.
The BFF or Bumble For Friends feature allows users to search specifically for platonic friendships. It works like the dating app — you input your location and swipe through profiles looking for people who interest you. When two users swipe right, they’ll be matched up and can start messaging each other. Use the BFF tool to find people to explore with while traveling or meet locals who can guide you through their city.
Of course, you can also use the regular Bumble app, too. Whether you’re looking for love, friendship, or a mix of both, Bumble can help you connect with real people at home and around the world.
