How to Remove or Change Your Profession on Bumble

When you complete your Bumble dating profile, you fill out a form ready to be judged. Everything you add to this profile will be weighed, measured, and hopefully not missing, which is why writing a dating biography is very difficult. But what if you’ve already written and things change? How to remove or change your profession on Bumble?

Most of your personal information will be withdrawn from your Facebook account, but you can enter some of it yourself. Your school and occupation are collected from Facebook, but if you change careers or want to put something else in, you can change it from within Bumble. It only takes a minute to do. But you can’t remove a profession, just change it.

Change your profession on Bumble

If you want to change your profession on Bumble, the process has two steps. First you have to change it as with Facebook and Bumble shares the information. Then you can change it in Bumble itself. You can change that in Bumble, but it would seem strange for you to say your career is one thing on Facebook, but Bumble says something else. In a world where first impressions matter, this is a danger sign.

I find it easier to use a computer browser to change your occupation on Facebook:

  1. Log into Facebook and go to your home page.
  2. Hover your mouse over the box containing your work and school and select the pencil icon that appears.
  3. Select Business and education from the left menu.
  4. Select Add business and enter the details.

You can now change your profession on Bumble.

  1. Open the Bumble app and select your Profile.
  2. Select Edit and choose profession.
  3. Add your profession or use a predefined one within the app.

That is all. If you are using Android, your changes will appear automatically. If you’re using iOS, you’ll need to refresh the screen to reflect your changes.

What difference does a job make

Your profession can have a huge impact on how you look on dating apps. A lot of studies have been done on many of the decisions we make when it comes to online dating, and the profession is one that stands out a lot. If you have a popular job, you are golden. If you do something more mundane, you’ll have to work a little harder to get an appointment.

According to a study using Tinder, the most popular occupations are:

For women:

  1. Physiotherapist
  2. Interior architect
  3. Founder/Entrepreneur
  4. Public Relations/Communication
  5. Teacher
  6. college student
  7. Speech Language Pathologist
  8. Pharmacist
  9. Social media Manager
  10. model
  11. Dental health
  12. Nurse
  13. Flight attendant
  14. personal trainer
  15. Estate agent

I’m not sure in what world a woman who is a social media manager is more attractive than a woman who does something else, but the statistics don’t lie.

For men:

  1. Pilot
  2. Founder/Entrepreneur
  3. fireman
  4. doctor
  5. TV/Radio Personality
  6. Teacher
  7. Engineer
  8. model
  9. health officer
  10. college student
  11. Lawyer
  12. personal trainer
  13. financial advisor
  14. Police officer
  15. Military

Occupations that women find attractive are more predictable. Those who help others or make a lot of money.

To lie or not to lie about your profession while flirting

One’s occupation is one of the main ‘white lies’ many people tell about themselves when filling out an online dating profile. There are two main reasons for this. First, the person who wrote the profile thinks it will get the attention they want. Second, they know that their real work will never be enough to lure anyone in or is too mundane to go unnoticed.

Is a white lie about your profession a bad thing?

In a word, yes. Listing your job as a surgeon may make you attractive to some flirts, but being caught in a lie will not make you attractive to any of them. Using clever language or techniques to make an impression without lying is another. Having a photo of you in a gown can give the impression that you’re a doctor rather than a janitor, but it doesn’t matter unless you say you’re a surgeon.

However, if you are caught in a lie, no matter how strong the attraction or initial spark, you will die in the water. You can change your profession quickly on Bumble, but be sure to only tell the truth when doing so. If you value the person you are trying to match, you will be honest. If the attraction is strong enough, it doesn’t matter what you do for a living.
