It is easy to get lost in the world of dating apps these days if you are single, and sometimes even when you are not. The dating applications itself are so fascinating that spending time on it is just like surfing social media websites, which they are in a way. However, the problem with most of the dating applications or sites these days is men primarily dominate them, and the feature it has gives the men, an added advantage over women. It is a kind of dominance that many women might not want to go through. Women are equal to men in today’s date and have been so for years. However, with the wave of awareness and the feminism revolution has made the somewhat distorted line around feminism disappear in the past few years.
While many dating sites and applications have been working fine for some of the women, there was always a void that could have been filled with a dating app that is designed around the needs of women. It is what Bumble became when it was launched in 2014. Currently, Bumble is valued at over $1 billion and has more than 18 million members in more than ten countries. The number of members Bumble has been increasing with every passing day, and recently, Whitney Wolfe Herd, the founder, and CEO of Bumble, even turned down an offer from the dating giant, Match.com. Whitney Wolfe Herd is also the co-founder of Tinder and has a good experience of how the dating applications worked. It is this experience she used constructively to start Bumble after she left Tinder.
However, Bumble was more focused on women as felt there were a few things which can be tweaked to make the women happier with the dating applications. Whitney Wolfe Herd has featured on the cover of many famous magazines, including the Forbes, WiredUK, and the Fast Company. She has also been listed in the 30 under 30 list by Forbes, which is published every year and has been one of the women in the list of tech women entrepreneurs by the famous Elle’s magazine.Whitney Wolfe Herd wants to make it easier for the women to find the date for them, and get a selection of men they can feel safer hanging out with. Bumble has strong verification requirements, and men can only contact women after the women have decided to contact men first. It is such criteria that make Bumble, a very satisfying dating app for women.
