Why are the Blooms only on the weekends?
We want to make sure as many people can attend these as possible so that it is easy to have people meet each other. Weekend afternoons are when we've learned people generally have the fewest conflicts. That said, we're looking to add more times and days in the future, so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I edit my profile or preferences?
When you open the app, tap on the profile icon (it looks like a person) at the bottom right of the screen. You should be able to see your profile. If you tap on the edit icon (it looks like a pencil) next to any of the fields you want to edit, you should be able to do edit that field.
Why didn't I get a match?
We do our best to match everyone on a Bloom who wants to join one each weekend. Sometimes we are not able to do that. Expanding your preferences (location, time availability, dating preferences) and 💜-ing more people will increase the chance that you'll get matched on a Bloom. Come back each day at noon to see your five suggestions - 💜 those people to tell us you want to meet them. Keep 💜-ing and come back next week!
I went on my Bloom and did not recognize anyone I said I wanted to meet. What happened?
We do our best to send you on Blooms with people you tell us you want to meet. But sometimes people cancel. We also take into account people you told us you wanted to meet at any point in time, so it's possible you 💜-ed them a while ago and forgot. We hope you enjoyed meeting the people who were there.
I joined a waitlist for an event and didn't get invited. What happened?
We do our best to invite as many people as possible each week. Sometimes there are more people than we can accommodate. We prioritize inviting people who have mutually 💜-ed each other. Other times, there are not enough people available in a particular location on a particular day to run an event, and so we have to cancel. If you think there might be something wrong, if you have matches on an event and you're not getting invited, please email us at email@example.com
to let us know.
How can I get more matches?
Complete your profile! The most common reason we hear from our members about why they chose not to 💜 other members is because their profiles are not complete. Because this is a social and dating community, our members want to know about you. This means taking some time to write about yourself, share your interests and passions and personality. It also means adding more photos. The photos that get the best responses depict our members smiling or looking happy.
I don't have a referral code. Can I still sign up?
Right now, we are in a private beta to make sure the app works as it needs to support our growing community. Even if you do not have a referral code you can sign up and create your profile and join our waitlist. We'll be adding people from our waitlist soon. Be mindful that we are a community based highly in affirmative consent, and your application should reflect an understanding of what that means.
What does Bloom cost?
Right now, it's free! We aim to work with the community to determine fair and reasonable pricing.
I have an idea! Where can I share it?
