The dating app just released a few paid features to help "enhance your Bumble experience and buy more time, so to speak." Those who upgrade to Bumble Boost can rematch with expired connections, "instantly" match with those who previously liked them, and get an extra 24 hours to craft the perfect message, the company announced Monday.
"There aren't enough hours in the day, and sometimes 24 hours isn't enough time to make the first move," the company wrote in a blog post. "That's why we've created Bumble Boost."
Bumble did not immediately get back to us about pricing, but TechCrunch says these features will set you back $9.99 a month. If you're not all about paying for a dating app, no worries: Bumble is still free like it always has been, you just won't get these premium features.

Rival dating app Tinder last year launched a premium tier with a few perks you won't find in the free version, including the ability to scope out prospective hotties in a different city, undo your last swipe if you messed up, and like an unlimited amount of people. It's pricing might raise eyebrows among its older users, however. For more, check out PCMag's Top Tinder Tips.
Meanwhile, another dating app recently took on a new identity: Ashley Madison. Following its its very public breach and dump of user data last year, the now-infamous cheating site is now promoting itself as a place to find hotel flings and threesomes.
