Frequently Asked Questions

What is Bloom Community?

Bloom Community is the social app for sex-positive and edge-of-culture communities that helps you meet people organically through shared events. We collaborate with local organizers and event producers to curate the best events calendar for boundary-expanding events. Our app allows you to create a profile, see suggested people, 💜 people you want to meet, and become Buds when the interest is mutual.

Is Bloom Community a dating app?

Bloom Community is an app for all types of connection built around community. When you mutually 💜 heart someone, you become Buds - and then you both can decide what form that connection will take. That's why we call our connections Buds - we leave it to you to define what the connection will be.

Who is Bloom for?

We welcome everyone 18+ who shares our community values and is looking for connection. Our community tends to lean a bit alternative and adventurous. We strive to be inclusive for all sexual orientations, gender identities, and relationship identities including monogamy, ethical non-monogamy, and kink. You are welcome here.

How does Buds work?

Share who you'd like to meet by tapping 💜. You can 💜 people on events you're interested in, or you can 💜 people from your daily suggestions. Every day, we offer you five suggestions of people in the community that we think you might like to meet. Your suggestions are based on the preferences you share with us. You will become Buds with someone when you 💜 them and they 💜 you back - it's a consent-based mutual opt-in. No unsolicited DMs on Bloom!

How do I join?

First, download our app from the App Store or Google Play. You can 💜 people and become Buds. You can also join events - with your Buds or solo - and find people who are interested in the same events and experiences as you.
