Bumble’s Relationship Expert Shan Boodram Shares Tips for Enhancing Your Dating Profile and Embracing New Trends this Season

Bumble recently ran a survey* across the United States to unearth dating trends that highlight the top traits people are looking for in a date, the most attractive qualities in a partner, how people feel about dating this season, and more.

According to the survey, an overwhelming majority (79%) of respondents are open to using dating apps to meet someone this year. Sixty-one percent (61%) of respondents said they’re looking forward to having fun with their dating journey, and many respondents feel positive about dating this year (79%).

The survey also revealed the importance of shared values. Based on the survey, one of the most attractive qualities in a potential partner is having similar values, and the top traits that respondents are looking for in a potential partner include honesty and respect.

A majority (59%) of respondents are also open to dating outside of their “type.” In fact, based on Bumble’s 2023 Dating Trends survey, which was conducted in October 2022 with a sample of 14,300 Bumble members around the world, an overwhelming majority of global respondents (63%) are doing away with physical requirements when dating.

If this trend resonates with you, try Bumble’s newest product feature, “Speed Dating,” which brings retro speed dating to the online dating experience, allowing Bumble’s community to prioritize personality over physical appearance. Available every Thursday between 7-8 pm local time in the app, speed dating is a fun, pressure-free way to briefly chat within a timed conversation without sharing any photos. After three minutes, each person is asked if they would like to continue the conversation. If both people choose to match, their chat will live in their Date Mode queue, and their profile will then be available to view following the event.

If you're looking to make romantic connections this spring and beyond, download the Bumble app and take advantage of its many features, including Speed Dating, Profile Badges, and more!
