Whitney Wolfe Makes it Easier for Women to Experience the Excitement of New Love

The experience of butterflies and the excitement of finding new love is one of the greatest feelings that women can every experience. However, it is not as common as women would like to think. For one thing, women have to weed through all of the mismatches. Some women spend years alone even with all of the dating apps they are signed up with. Given that many of the dating apps that are available are abused by men who are constantly spamming women like there is no tomorrow, some women may find themselves a little scared off by the desperation.

One thing that Whitney Wolfe understands is that women also want a little room to do something. Therefore, she has designed Bumble for women to use to reach out to men that they are matched with. There is a huge difference in Bumble from other dating apps. It has shown itself to be a little more effective. Where other dating apps would send women a very cluttered mailbox, Bumble narrows the search down to one match a day. Women are given the opportunity to message the match. The man is not able to message a woman. However, he can message another man if he is looking for something from the same sex. Click here to know more about her.

Whitney Wolfe’s configuration makes it so that women are not faced with the issue that other dating apps give them which is decision fatigue. When one has so many options to look through, it can cause them to be indecisive because they don’t know where to go. This makes it harder for both men and women. With Bumble, women get something that works to their advantage. Also, men get to enjoy some of the benefits in that they get approached. One of the common complaints men have is that women don’t approach them.

Whitney Wolfe has shown a lot of creativity in putting together something that both men and women can truly benefit from. Seeing that she is a feminist that wants to give good men recognition, she made sure that all of the good men have a better chance at romance.

Whitney Wolfe and the Modern Dating Revolution

As the world continues to adopt modern technology across different spheres of life, the dating scene has also undergone many significant changes over the years. Gone are the days when you had to go out physically if you ever hoped to get a match as today you can easily do that with the help of an app. Among the two most popular dating apps that are available in the market today are Tinder and Bumble. What do the two have in common? Both companies were founded in part and wholly by Whitney Wolfe.

Although Whitney Wolfe later resigned from Tinder, a company that she co-founded in the year 2012, she still carries on as the CEO of Bumble. In the few years that this dating app has been in operation, Whitney Wolfe has almost single handedly transformed it into what is now ranked as the fourth most popular dating app in the world.The Bumble dating app is supposed to work like a regular dating app on paper but it has a number of unique properties to which a significant portion of its unprecedented success can be attributed.

The most significant of this is the fact that unlike other regular dating apps, only female members can initiate contact when using the app. The main advantage here is that more contacts initiated are likely to bear fruitful results as women generally only initiate contact with people in whom they are really interested and not just poking around. At present Bumble has already garnered more than 11 million registered users.Whitney Wolfe is neither new to the dating world nor to that of technology. In 2014 she was named among the 30 most important women under the age of 30 in Tech by the Business insider and she has since gone on to win more accolades to cement her place.
