Let’s face it, online dating is a bit of a minefield, no matter whether you’re newly single, prefer to meet someone in a bar rather than them sliding into your DMs, on the search for a short-term romance or a long-term relationship.

The pandemic made dating less accessible, but as the world has reclaimed freedom following a lockdown-stricken world, there's more opportunity to start over again, pick up where you left of and feel comfortable reaching out to people, as a way of forming deep connections, finding love and fostering healthy relationships. Bumble, the women-first dating and social networking app, has recently launched its new out-of-home campaign that captures nuanced dating cultures in cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Ahmedabad. Ahead of the festival season, Bumble’s latest OOH campaign executed by Kinetic India aims to support the community to navigate their dating journeys and encourage women to make the first move.

Over the past two years, Bumble has introduced a number of product and policy changes to best support its community. This included new features to navigate virtual dating, Audio Prompts and Videos on Profile, Audio Notes, in-app Covid-19 preferences to easily communicate how people are comfortable dating and 150 new interest badges in dating profiles to showcase your hobbies and interests easily.

Campaign Details

The new OOH campaign takes a humorous, city-specific, hyper-localised look at nuanced dating cultures during festivals featuring taglines such as “Find the Kasundi to your Kabiraji”, “Find a Pujo date who’ll go, “Asche Bochor Abar Hobe'' with you” in Kolkata and “You, me, and gwalia dosa at Manek Chowk”, “Find the double butter to your vada pav. Date on Bumble.” in Ahmedabad.
