There are many different reasons why people are switching to dating apps and sites to find their soul mates or start a relationship. People these days have a busy life, and it is hard for them and even awkward at times, to approach someone in public or a social setting. The fear of rejection in real life is much higher than not getting a reply of the text online from a stranger. In the past couple of decades, the internet, as well as technology, has helped in changing how people approach dating. Meeting new people or finding a date is not a big deal these days, thanks to the scores of dating apps and sites available these days. In the world of dating apps, one name that is often heard is that of Whitney Wolfe Herd.
Whitney Wolfe Herd is not only the co-founder of Tinder, the number one dating app on the market today, but is also the founder of another popular dating app called Bumble. After Whitney left Tinder in 2014, she was wondering what to do, and the idea of another dating app came to her when the owner of Badoo, Andrey Andreev, contacted her. Whitney Wolfe Herd already had substantial experience in developing dating app and knew the in and out of what needs to be done to make a dating app, prosperous and viable for the people. However, Whitney Wolfe Herd was clear about the fact that the app she would create would be nothing like what is available in the market, and she was right. Bumble is nothing like what is there in the market, and she has ensured that the app has distinct features that give it a unique identity.
Whitney Wolfe Herd made Bumble a dating app where only women can contact the men first, and thus, men can just go through the profile, but cannot message any women until unless women contact them. It makes sense if you think about it because, in the other dating app, women are subject to bullying and abuse irrespective of their activity on the app. At Bumble, men need to be patient and wait for women to find their profile exciting and request to contact. It is an app that does give women a better position than men regarding connectivity, but also makes way for meaningful and mature relationships to blossom. Currently, Bumble has close to 12 million members.
