Dating fellow musicians
By now, you’ve probably heard of Bumble, the app where women make the first move in heterosexual matching and either person can make the first move with same-sex matching. It has to be done within 24 hours or else the match disappears. Have a dog and want to meet other dog-owners, and not just at the dog park or randomly on the street? On your profile, you tell fellow users about yourself and your dog, posting pictures of you both.(I happen to be a big fan, as I met my boyfriend on it.) A few months ago, the app launched Bumble BFF, so those of us looking for a BFF, or maybe just some friends, can go on and find some.

) This is to make sure you’re teaming up with people on a similar level as yourself, and the ratings are based on skill level, effort, and sportsmanship. The only caveat is that some people are on Bumble for dating and BFFs, so you may witness some sexy pictures meant for prospective dates, not friends.
