BFF MODE: Because BFF only shows users who identify as the same gender, everyone has First Move privileges. This means either party is able to send the first message once a match is created either from the Boom screen or their connections.
Who can send the first message on Bumble?
On Bumble, yes, women are required to send the first message after a match. But every other app, its up to whoever decides to make the first move. That is, until Tinder launches its new feature that will make it possible for women to chat only with men they message first.
Can either girl message first on Bumble?
Boys are not allowed to send the first message on Bumble. Girls must initiate the conversation with their matches, or else they disappear after 24 hours. With same-sex relationships, the app has no rule on who has to message first, whether youre searching for romance or merely friendship.
