Bumble Fumbles

One of the dating apps I have been using is Bumble. And I don’t understand their algorithm. I have put I am a man interested in meeting other men. I have on my profile that I am out and proud.

Several times they have shown me women’s profiles. I have checked off that other things that are deal breakers and yet, those profiles show up as someone I can choose to swipe left or right to. I am about to give up and close or delete my profile. I wish they would fix that algorithm.

Again, I am going to blame my absence on business. I believe in my last post I griped about not being able to say no to volunteer commitments. I am tired and exhausted and would like a weekend to myself. Just to take a break.

I hope everyone has been doing well. And I’m catching up on blogs and enjoying your posts.

    Do you check out a lot of web sites that aren’t particularly LGBTQ? Fast and Furious movies? TV crime dramas? Talk radio? Things like that could be leading your algorithms astray.

    I after my three relationships, one of three years, one of 5 years and the last one of 13 years, I have resigned myself to being the gay Liz Taylor. I have never tried dating sites and to be honest, scare me. Them and their crazy algorithms. I tired once for a week and it was mostly all sex in the end, even though there was no mention of it in the profile. Not that I minded…I enjoy sex. But let’s be honest up front about such things then. Now I have grown so self-sufficient and enjoy more independence, I question if I’m relationship status anymore? I guess if it happens, it will happen, though I think I function better as a self-sufficient unit. LOL! But yes…it is nice to have some time to yourself. Always a nice relaxing thing. Ill be glad when the political season is over…I’m burnt.

    I didn’t even know Bumble catered to gay men. I always thought it was oriented towards straight women who were tired of getting creeped on by guys? You learn something new every day, I guess.

    Bumble, huh?
    Like Lurkie, I had no idea they had a gay section. And you’d have to go on the paid ones to get good matches, I think. I don’t know. I’ve been off the loop or years and I have no idea how those things work anymore…
    Also, you do need time to chill. I’d just do that and let life take charge…

    I’ve given up on the apps. I’d rather meet a guy in person but that seems to be problematic too.

    I hope the algorithm gets its act in gear and you have better luck. Enjoy some downtime and have a nice relaxing weekend.

    I have never heard of Bumble, which I read as Bungle.
