Bumble BFF Conversation Starters

Want to feel less awkward when using Bumble BFF? We've got the best Bumble BFF conversation starters. I started using Bumble BFF one summer when I was living alone in a new city, and let me tell you, it was awkward AF. I have had the same friends since kindergarten and only made new ones in college, which is a totally different scene than living alone a city. I was near both my brothers, but I really just needed some #girltime, don't we all? Anyway, I played around on Bumble BFF and quickly realized, everyone feels awkward! So don't sweat it! Put yourself out there like everyone else. Here are some good Bumble BFF conversation starters.

Bumble BFF Conversation Starters - One Liners

So, even in BFF mode, you are kinda flirting around on Bumble. I call it "friend-flirting," the easiest way to make a friend. You can use some of the same tactics as regular flirting, minus some of the, you know, physical contact and stuff like that. It's fun! Even though I was just looking for someone to get a mani-pedi with or a brunch date, these funny one-liners worked every time! Here are some Bumble BFF conversation starter one-liners.

  • How much does a polar bear weigh? Enough to break the ice!
  • Food for thought: is a hotdog a sandwich?
  • If we aren't supposed to eat at night, why is there a light in the fridge?

Bumble BFF Conversation Starters - A Personality Question

If you are looking for a pal to hang out with for a while, you're going to have to make sure you have ample stuff to talk about. Starting the conversation with a question is a good way to see if you can spark a longer chat. Plus, if done correctly, these conversations can become funny really quickly. I like to do a sort of "food for thought" type of question, one that combines making you think while also making you laugh. Here are some Bumble BFF conversation starters that are personality questions.

  • If you were a fruit, which fruit would you be?
  • What would you order at a Thai food restaurant?
  • It's 2 AM on a Saturday, what are you doing?

Sometimes all you need is a funny way to say hello to spark conversation. This honestly works the best for me, and gets answers from the most diverse range of people. Starting with, "Hi! What's up?" doesn't really cut it these days, especially if you're looking for a friend you can be silly around. Just be yourself! Throw out a funny (and often sarcastic) hello that will grab anyone's attention. Here are some Bumble BFF conversation starters that qualify as a quirky hello.

  • Top o' the mornin' to ya!
  • Howdy!
  • Ciao!
  • You up? [used sarcastically]
  • How's it hanging?
  • Hi! My name is [name] and I like long walks on the beach!
