Should I use fake name on Bumble?
Our answer would be yes, since using a fake name may create an impression of attempted catfishing or impersonation. It starts the match off on the wrong foot. So make sure to use your real name on Tinder, or at least your nickname. A match will become suspicious if they find out youre using a fake name on the app.
