The Best Way To Answer The 'I'm A Great Plus One Because' Bumble Prompt

Bumble is one of the most popular dating apps out there and for all the right reasons. The fact that women and non-binary users call the shots and make the first move when matched with another person is fabulous enough on its own, but what further sets Bumble apart from other mainstream dating apps is all the other novelties it has to offer. It's also not just for dating; you can even find new friends with the Bumble BFF extension.

As a preview of what you're getting into, Bumble offers some prompts to get your creativity flowing. Bumble prompts are fun questions you can answer and then showcase on your dating profile to let other users get to know you better. The answers can be great conversation starters, but they're just as important to let potential matches know a bit more about you. There are more than 30 questions to choose from, so your personality really can shine if you take this seriously.

If one of the prompts you chose to highlight on your page is the "I'm a great plus one because" prompt, now's the perfect opportunity to get inventive and have fun with your answer, potentially matching with your dream partner or friend along the way.

Showcase your humor

Bringing someone as a plus one to an event can certainly be a big deal when you've only just started dating. That's exactly why this is a prompt in the first place; it's interesting to know what your match thinks of themselves in these terms, and it could be a deal-breaker for you.

While other Bumble prompts like the "A review by a friend" prompt might require you to get a bit more serious with your answer, the "I'm a great plus one because" question allows you to show off your wittiness. You don't necessarily need to be super funny; a little humor goes a long way. According to Psychology Today, being humorous is a highly sought-after trait in the dating world, so crack that joke.

You don't need to go overboard, but a pun or a witty pop culture reference will do the job. This will also tell your potential match a bit more about your interests.

Skip embellishing too much

All Bumble prompt responses should be honest and showcase you as a person, so maybe skip the responses you've found by browsing the web as everyone can find these. Be original, and don't try to come off as something you're not. If you're not all that funny, that's okay! Highlight your compassion or another relevant quality you're proud of in your response.

When telling someone why you'd be a fun plus one, don't say you can dance if you can't — the truth will come out as soon as you hit the function in question with your Bumble date. According to Maria Sullivan, dating expert and vice president, altering facts about yourself is probably the worst thing you can put on your dating profile. "One of the most important things you can do is display your true self and keep all details accurate on your online dating profile," she tells PureWow.

While it may be tempting to come off as a funny person when it doesn't come naturally, it's better to be appreciated for something that you actually are or a passion you have. For example, if you're a big movie fan, why not say something along the lines of "I'm a great plus one because I'll entertain you with movie facts when the office party becomes unbearable" as an answer? This way, you're more likely to match with someone who shares your interests and who will like you off-screen as well.
