How To Respond To Hey On Bumble
Conventionally, men are expected to start up a conversation but, that is not the case with Bumble. Bumble is a female-led dating platform that allows women to start up conversations. Although, most men are not used to this reversed role still, with a little practice they can get used to it. However, one issue men mostly face on Bumble and other dating sites is the “Hey” message. This might be the most awful opening text that one could send, as it is seen as low-effort messaging. If you are faced with such a message, and you are looking for the best response, then you are at the right blog. Let me enlighten you on how to respond to the “Hey” message on Bumble.
Despite Bumble being a female-led dating app, the “Hey” message is a way the females use to kick the ball back to the man’s court. If the opposite sex initiates a conversation in this manner, then the man might be left in a novel situation, given that the man had to wait for the woman to message first. In that period of wait, he has built anxiety for the initial message, only to be hit with “hey”. Most men get offended by the initial contact, while some are not sure of what to respond. There are different ways to respond to the message, and one way is to ignore the message, which will result in the match expiring. But in the adventure of making a serious match and meeting people, ignoring the message will not help you.
