Dating these days is not as difficult as it used to. Gone are the days when you had to spend hours in clubs or in pubs to socialize and find a romantic partner for yourself. These days, there are dating applications out there that would make meeting new people much more comfortable. For people who are single and want to mingle, things were never more exciting than it is today. Thanks to the advent of the internet and the progress that the world of technology has made, numerous dating apps and sites help people match with the strangers, which depending on the users can convert into a date or maybe even more.
One of the dating apps that has been spreading across the globe like wildfire is Bumble, which allows the women to make the first contact. It is this feature of Bumble, which has made it highly popular among the women, who were otherwise bored and even irritated with the men sending unsolicited messages and even vulgar images. With the dating app that allows women to make the first contact, it becomes easier for women to manage their time with the app. Women don’t have to check their phone every few minutes to check it is nothing but yet another unsolicited message from another man.
Bumble is co-founded and owned by Whitney Wolfe Herd, who has conceptualized the idea of this women-centric app. Whitney Wolfe Herd has extensive experience in the dating app development and is also the co-founder of another popular dating app with over 50 million users named Tinder. Currently, Bumble has a member base of nearly 12 million, but that figure is expected to grow exponentially in the days to come. In the last year, Bumble achieved the turnover of $100 million, which the company expects to double in 2018.
Whitney Wolfe Herd has intimately experienced what women go through on most of these dating apps and sites and has always wondered about the changes that can be made to make dating app experience clean and constructive for women. Bumble has been getting popular among the target audience since its launch, and Whitney Wolfe Herd continues to implement new and upgraded features into the app to make the user experience more fun, seamless, and efficient. Whitney Wolfe Herd has featured on some of the magazines as a successful entrepreneur, including Fast Company, Forbes, Elle’s, and the Wired UK.
