You might have seen a potential match you love to connect with as you swipe through profiles on Bumble. And you’ll sometimes wonder whether if you see someone on Bumble, they see you also? Find the answer to that question in this article.
If you see someone on Bumble have they seen you?
Whenever you see someone on your profile, it could mean two things
- They have already seen you and swiped right on your profile.
- They haven’t seen you at all.
Bumble, in most cases, want to show only people who have shown interest in each other to prevent users from just wasting their time.
So, if you’re wondering whether seeing someone on Bumble means they’ve seen you? It likely means the person has seen your profile and has liked it by swiping right.
When anyone swipes right on a profile, Bumble ensures that they let the swiped person know that someone has shown interest in them by bringing up that person’s profile.
Meanwhile, it is worth noting that Bumble will not exactly tell you that the person swiped right on your profile. So you can also decide whether you’re interested in this person or not.
Now you may be wondering that the person is supposed to have appeared in your matched list — does it mean they haven’t seen your profile? Since Bumble tries to keep information like this from its users to ensure better privacy, it will also be safe to say the person hasn’t seen you on their profile.
That person may not have frequently used the Bumble app to have found you. If a user hasn’t been very active on the app before you saw that person, Bumble may decide not to show them your profile or push you down their profile list.
That can happen because Bumble wants to ensure you match with active users like you too. So, Bumble may wait until the person becomes more active before your profile shows up.
In any case, if you see someone on Bumble, it doesn’t always mean they have seen you too. But whenever they appear on your matched list, it definitely means they’ve seen and accepted your profile too.
Can I see the people that have swiped left or right on me in Bumble?
If you’re a premium account user, you can use the ” Beeline ” feature to find out who has swiped right on your profile.
So it basically tracks the list of people who have at some point swiped right on your profile.
Whenever you want to use this feature, feeds of those profiles who have swiped right on your profile will be displayed. So you can decide to swipe right or left on them too.
Meanwhile, at the time of this writing, Bumble does not provide free account users any feature that lets you see those who swiped right on you. However, there are ways you can guess it for yourself.
One way to tell if someone you swiped right on has done the same for you is if you find that person in your matched list.
But it is not a surefire way to know. That is because it’s also possible that your profile hasn’t been shown on that person’s profile. Hence, you still won’t see them in your matched list and can’t tell if they’ve seen your profile or not.
Now, unlike the right swipe, Bumble doesn’t have a feature that allows you to see those who have swiped left on your profile, whether you’re a free or premium account user. However, there are ways you can guess it. For example, if you have swiped right on a profile and still can’t see them in your matched list after a while, it could mean that they have swiped left on you, although it is not always true.
In any case, the bottom line is that you can’t see those who swiped left on you on Bumble, but you can see right swipes if you’re using a premium account. However, if you finally get matched with the person, you can try asking them whether they have previously swiped left or right on your profile.
Will Bumble show you someone who you already swiped left?
Bumble sometimes bring up profiles you have already swiped left, allowing you to decide whether you’ve changed your mind about them or not.
And just so you know, this is not a very common thing. We talked about this in detail on our article on Bumble profile recycling.
Generally, it take months before you will see that profile again. And aside from that, there are also some other things that Bumble considers before showing that profile again.
For example, if the person you swiped left on has swiped right on you, there’s a chance that Bumble will show that person on your profile again. In addition, your location can also contribute to Bumble showing you left-swiped profiles again.
If there aren’t many people on Bumble in your location, the app might decide to show you those profiles again.
And that happens when it has shown everyone in your location and according to your filters. However, there’s no assurance that you’ll see them again as it only happens once in a while. In fact, only a few users report seeing such profiles again.
If you see someone on bumble, it could either mean that they have come accross your profile in the past, or was just recommended due to a mutual past activity.
