The adage used to be 鈥渃an鈥檛 buy me love,鈥 but now dating apps are proving that maybe you actually can. With free apps like Tinder and OkCupid monetizing on certain 鈥減remium鈥 features like rewinding a match or boosting your profile, dating is鈥 better than it鈥檚 ever been? And now, another super popular app has jumped on the money train: Bumble.


Yesterday, Bumble introduced a package subscription (Bumble Boost) to bump up users鈥 chances of finding love on the app. For $9.99 a month, or less if you sign up for a pre-paid subscription, Bumble users get access to three new features: Beeline, Rematch and Busybee.

Beeline will put together a list of users that have already 鈥渓iked鈥 you. With Beeline, you can just go down a list and tap 鈥測es鈥 to people that already said yes to you. It鈥檚 more efficient AND it takes out all the fear of rejection! Rematch will let you rematch with expired matches and Busybee will let you extend the app鈥檚 24-hour match period. Basically, the paid version allows users a multitude of ways to ensure that they never miss out on a potential match.

Paying for love on dating apps isn鈥檛 exactly a new phenomenon. Tinder already has a premium version that allows users to undo swipes or find matches in different parts of the world. While paid dating apps may be a perfect add-on to those seriously scouring apps for a new bae, personally, we鈥檙e a bit apprehensive.聽You can call us old-fashioned, but in the words of our guru J.Lo: My love don鈥檛 cost a thing.
