Swipe right, you bet! You might find this one odd, but for the single mamas out there it is hard to get out and meet men in real life. Bumble is like a new ‘Tinder’ and was developed by a woman, so it must be ace! Similar process to most apps however once you match with someone, the woman MUST make first contact, putting the power in your hands and stopping that game of ‘who will message first?’. You have 24 hours to make the first move then the man has 24 hours to respond, so there is no silly waiting game either. If you’re keen, you’ve got to act swiftly or they disappear. Mama has road tested this one for you extensively and gives it the thumbs up!!!
