With their efforts, more women are empowered to do something about connecting and to create their own luck," says Dr. Margie Holmes.

1. First things first, verify your profile. In Bumble, you can also request your match to do the same. Of all the things you want to catch while you’re on holiday, you don’t want a catfish on your net!

2. Complete your bio with a short description of who you are and use Bumble badges to show what you’re interested in. It’s way easier to find matches when you put yourself out there.

3. Meet someone prior or during your trip with Bumble’s travel mode. Set the location of where you are or where you’re heading so you can already find a match around the area! This is the perfect way to start a conversation with your match before you even meet irl.

4. Get to know your match better by getting on a video or voice call. Save your thumbs from lengthy conversations via text! Isn’t it better to see or hear him/her/them right before you meet up?

5. Disclose what you’re looking for and make your intentions clear. Are you looking for love, a fling, or a casual date? Get these questions out of the way so you can start cruising with your holi-date!
