Bumble’s blog, The Beehive, has published an opening line generator designed to help women make the first move.
The tool creates opening lines for Date, BFF and Bizz. For each, there are a set of sliders that users can manipulate to influence the kind of lines they are recommended.
On the Bumble Date generator, the sliders are used to “indicate what’s most important to you in a match”.
There are scales for kindness, humour, ambition, honesty and adventure. The widget also links to an article explaining Bumble’s ‘Conversation Starters’ feature, which offers up ideas on the in-app match screen.
Lines focused on kindness and humour include “Are you a sleep-in-socks kind of person?”, “Were Ross and Rachel on a break?” and “What’s your idea of the perfect day?”
Move the sliders to adventure and ambition, and lines include “Would you rather be transported to the 1920s or 1820s?”, “Do you plan extensively before a trip or wing it?” and “On a scale of 1 to 10, how spontaneous are you?”
The generator also tells users their ‘dating type’ – adventurous and ambitious singles are said to be “bold”. People with this dating type are not willing to waste time with someone who doesn’t have plans.
Other content on the blog explores topics such as motherhood, getting ahead in one’s career, safety and ideas for socialising.
