No Matches on Bumble: Here’s Why (+10 Solutions)

In fact, you have no matches!

“Do I really have a face only a mother could love?”

Get more Bumble matches right now

With all the knowledge that I have, it’s honestly impossible to have no matches on Bumble.

No matter how average or weird you look.

That’s why I made this video to get you the matches you deserve!

1.  Remove your selfies

People in selfies are seen as less attractive, less likable and more egotistical?

Don’t take my word for it. A bunch of eggheads said so in a study.

Let me toss another study at you. These brainiacs from Ludwig-Maximilians-University interviewed 238 people and 82% wanted to see less selfies on social media.

As if I haven’t slapped you across the face with enough studies, research by Zoosk says profiles with a selfie get 8% less messages.

And what really makes me L-O-L, selfie makers believe they look good in their pictures! But not you.

You now know where your selfie belongs.

I’ll give you a mind blowing insight about selfies, later in this article.

2. Be too attractive to be swiped left

You’re going to learn how to create an irresistible first profile photo and never be ignored again.

Because even if you’re the most amazing guy on the planet, but your first picture sucks, she’ll swipe you left.

Messed up, right?

But no worries. I got your back.

Lesson numero Juan, what to do with your face.


Not only does this graph make me seem smart, it also teaches you how to pose for a camera.

The colored bars basically say the following:

  • If you don’t look into the camera, smiling has little positive effect on your attraction
  • If you are looking into the camera, smiling has a big positive impact on your attraction

So for my amigos whose teeth look like they belong on a corn cob, keep your mouth shut and look away from the camera.

If you are blessed with a Colgate smile, make sure to show off your pearly whites while looking right into the lens.

The next step in enhancing your animal magnetism is cropping: only show the upper half of your torso.

That’s right, Bumble doesn’t care if you skip leg day.


Popeye does a good job of avoiding the squat rack, now he just needs to learn to crop.

Let’s apply this lesson directly to his profile.

There ya go:

Still lots of room for improvement, but way better already!

The final element should be obvious but is often forgotten: GOOD quality.

If you’re still shooting photos with a 2 megapixel cell phone, ship that ancient artifact to a museum and forget about it.

You want pictures made by a digital single-lens reflex camera.

If you don’t have one of those bad boys, chances are one of your friends or relatives do. Otherwise you can make due with the latest smartphone.

Left: Some guy new to Bumble
Right: Exact same guy who found TextGod and followed my advice.

Let’s add some context.

If you have corn for teeth, aim for this:

If your smile is brighter than my future, show it off:

A natural smile is gorgeous, but few people can pull it off.

And everyone can spot a fake.

Just look at the next photo:

So if your pretend smile makes you look like you have no soul, go with the option on the right.

Holy Tip:

Earn brownie points by posing with your pet. Ladies love pets, but not every guy. Increase your odds with dogs.

3.  Stay away from group photos

cause you to get close to zero matches on Bumble.

At least, if you show off your popularity in your first photo.


Because when women use Bumble, they don’t like to think. They want to instantly know who you are.

And if you have more than one person in your photo, you’re forcing her to play a guessing game. Rather than waste precious time and effort, she’ll swipe you left.

After all, there’s billions of other bachelors for her to find.

Holy Tip:

It’s not only other people that force her brain neurons to fire excessively, but noisy backgrounds too.

The photo on the left gets more matches than the one on the right, because it doesn’t have any drawn birds flapping about in the background.

The devil is in the details. Or in this case, an attention whoring flock of birds.

4. Make use of ‘signaling’

Noisy backgrounds don’t just distract your lady friend, backgrounds tell a story about you.

And as with any story, some are a hit and others a flop.

Why is any of this relevant? Because photographing yourself inside that junkheap you call a bedroom is making you look ugly.

A study shows that men who get their photos taken inside a swanky apartment are more attractive to women than dudes in an average house.

The graph says our friend in yellow is found the most attractive in the bottom right photo.

Can’t afford anything better than your 2-room apartment? Don’t fret.

There’s plenty of props that put you in a good light: exotic holiday souvenirs, trophies, flowers, birthday cards, books, artworks, pets, the list goes on.

Holy Tip:

Don’t use expensive cars as photo boosters. Posing with anything fancy only makes you look douchey.

Even if you just keep the ugly out of your background, you’re already doing better than 90% of other dudes.

5. Avoid factual and boring Bumble bios

Nine out of ten Bumble bros have a bio that puts her to sleep faster than running into Mike Tyson’s fists.. And you might be one of them.

What am I talking about?

A wall of tasteless facts about none other than themselves.And it’s not just men. Women are good at writing bland bios too.

Took me five swipes to find you these three screenshots.

Men aren’t any better at writing their profiles.

Some dudes express their personalities with inspirational quotes, “Without a goal you can’t score.”

But most brochachos like to describe themselves as factually as possible:

“Loves music, party, friends, food and travel.”

If I’m describing you, go to your Bumble profile, press ‘select all’ and hit backspace.

It’s time to create a good bio that gets you more matches.

Bumble’s three rules for a successful bio are:

  1. Be different.
  2. Appeal to her emotions.
  3. Keep it short

Writing a longer bio doesn’t mean you’re losing half your matches. Sometimes length is good (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). But good lengthy ‘about me’ texts are rare and, more importantly, tough to write.

Plus,  a ten-page essay says, “I stuck so much energy into this. I hope the girls will think I’m hilarious.”

Whereas a short bio implicitly says, “Bumble seems like fun. Let’s give it a go.”

In other words: nonchalance > tryharding.

Starting now, I forbid you to talk facts in your bio. Let the pictures do the talking.

6.  Tailor your profile to get more SuperSwipes

If you get more than one SuperSwipe a week, you belong to the 0,69% Bumble elite.

SuperSwipes are Bumble’s version of the Superlike. If you SuperSwipe someone, it places you on top of the pile when someone starts swiping.

Even though women can give one SuperSwipe a day, most ladies give zero.

If you don’t look like Toni Mahfud, being superswiped as a dude is rare.

If you’re reading this Toni, please stop making my girlfriend so wet.

But rare is still gettable!

And I’m going to tell you exactly how: know who your dream girl is.

What does she do? What does she like? How does she dress? What type of music does she listen to?

If you know what type of woman you like, you can design a profile that’s tailored specifically to them! Now you’re one of a kind.

And she’ll easily pick you out of a crowd. Suddenly all the sexy ladies with a fetish for your vibe will pick you.

This dude had the perfect niche Bumble profile.

The flipside of turning yourself into a special snowflake? 

Many women will swipe you left, unmatch, block, hate, piss on your grave, etc.

Which is fine, as long as your bio appeals to the ladies you like.

Because every like you receive now is not a vague indicator of interest, it’s a sign that says, “I’m super into you, please don’t mess this up by being an idiot.”

Said differently, every like you get now is like a SuperSwipe.

BOOM! Two birds with one stone. Because now you barely have unresponsive matches.

7. Don’t use all your photo slots

Bumble offers you six slots for your photos. Better fill them all, right?


Showing her a carefully selected photo album doesn’t make you look sexy or cool.

What she thinks of your Bumble collage.

Do you think celebrities and rockstars lose sleep over getting people to like them?

Hell no.

In fact, hardly any celebrities use dating apps. And if they do, they upload one photo and call it a day.

So what’s the magic number?

4. Maybe 5.

Six or more photos makes you seem too involved. And it also takes too long for her to go through.

Three or less and you can’t give her a good idea of what you and your life look like.

You want to use just enough pictures to spark her interest and read your bio.

Your emotionally charged one-sentence bio then drives her to scroll down even further, where she sees (something like) this


Your Instagram.

A huge platter of pictures she can pig out on.

But Louis, you just said 6 was already too much. Now you have over a 100?!

I understand your concern, bro. But stick with me.

Hand-selecting your best six photos and uploading them to Bumble is not the same as simply connecting your Instagram to a dating app.

Linking up your Insta costs way less effort.And the less effort you use, the more cool and attractive you are.

What’s more, by letting her binge on your Insta like it’s the new Stranger Things, she’s slowly convincing herself how interesting you are.

Your odds of getting swiped right suddenly skyrocket.

Don’t worry if you don’t have an Instagram. You can do without. It just helps hihi.

8. Bring sexy back to your profile

You expect women to rate your profile. But did you know Bumble rates your profile too?

Bumble claims it has made a Skynet-level algorithm that can accurately rate your profile’s sex appeal.

Bumble’s techies keep a lid on the exact method, but we know it heavily relies on two elements. Here’s how to make Bumble like you so you get seen by more high quality women.

Firstly, swipe selectively. Bumble is not a fan if you swipe everything right, you animal.

Secondly, check Bumble every day.

Bumble wants the ladies to have a good time. That’s why the dudes who send matches and get attention are moved up in the swipe stack.

And that’s why the dudes who rarely text and have a broken dislike button get banished to the bottom of the rankings.

These lads never see anything but ghouls and goblins.

9. Use photofeeler to get more matches

An honest mistake could be sabotaging your matches and putting an end to your sex life.

You’re not using the right first photo. And if she doesn’t like what she sees, she’ll probably swipe you left and out of her life.

Here’s how you make a good 1st Bumble photo:

  1. Clear your face of obstructions. No hats, sunglasses or emo haircuts.
  2. Keep it above the belt. Anything beneath your chest is out of the frame.
  3. Show your pearly whites (if you can do so without looking like you’re a murderer).

Next, go to and get your photo rated. Did you get an 8 or higher? Throw it on Bumble as your first!

10. Find out if you got banned

Sometimes your bio or picture isn’t the problem. There is another reason why you aren’t so lucky on Bumble.

Maybe your lack of matches is because Bumble hit you with the big ol’ ban hammer.

And its symptoms are so subtle, you may not even realize you’ve been shadowbanned.

What’s a shadowban you ask? When Bumble smashes your score to bits so you barely get any matches.

How do you know if you’ve been launched into the shadowrealm?

  • You get way less matches than normal
  • You receive less likes (check the green circle that says ‘match queue’, if it’s below 50 then something is wrong)
  • Your matches ignore you
  • Bumble sent you an official warning

So why doesn’t Bumble like you anymore?

Because you’ve been a bad boy!

Maybe you’ve sent X-rated texts to your matches. Perhaps you upset ladies with your vulgar bio. Or you compared two Bumble profiles of a sweetheart and a f*ckboi, videotaped the results and posted it on YouTube.

If the last example sounds super specific, that’s because it is.

A fellow hustler and friend placed a comparison video online for everyone to see and got banned.

My amigo received a notification and didn’t think too much of his punishment. “I’ll just make another account,” he thought “using a new number, different facebook, but same Google profile.”

The Google profile was enough for Bumble to recognize my pal as the same user. Which meant his fresh Bumble was also doomed to 1 to 2 matches a week.

To break out of low ELO hell, you must hide your past from Bumble’s all seeing eye.

That means: new Facebook (or no Facebook), new number, new app store account (if you’re a paying customer) and no Instagram.

You even want to switch up your photos and bio to make sure there are no ties to your Bumble history.

So how do you recognise if your reset worked?

By keeping a close watch on your matches in the first 24 hours.

Bumble gives new profiles a newbie boost. Which means you’re seen by more people than normal.

Are you getting above average likes and matches? Kudos, you’re out of the shadowrealm.

Okay, buddy. Armed with this article’s knowledge, you’re 69 steps ahead of your competitors.
