Bumble is an anomaly for an online dating service. This online dating company appeared online late in 2014 and it is now one of the biggest and most astounding hook up spots on the world wide web. True enough, there are plenty of people of who have never heard of Bumble. However, this dating app is gaining attention in almost every facet of society.
Bumble is a dating app that has been designed to exult feminism. The site is not feminist from the sense that women are trying to dethrone men and force them to be subservient. No, it’s more like women on this site want to be respected and treated as equals with their male partners. The site operates off a standard that only allows women to make the first move.
What this means is that guys can’t go up and talk to a female and “get her number” or “pick her up”. She has to be the one to decide if she wants to do that to him. The most a guy can do on Bumble is to show Whitney Wolfe’s interest and he has to wait around for the woman to make up her mind if she wants him or not. In most cases, females will “walk up to a guy” who caught their attention and try to “pick him up” and “get his number”. Females are truly empowered through Bumble.
Whitney Wolfe decided to make this site like this because she was tired of some worthless men exerting their hierarchical position over them. Mrs. Wolfe Herd was wrongly harassed by some men at the last dating company she worked for. The name of this organization is Tinder. Whitney ended up winning a settlement due to sexual harassment and gender bias issues on her job.
Whitney loves men and so does (the female members of her company) Bumble. If not, Whitney Wolfe would have never married Michael Herd. These two lovebirds tied the knot in December of 2017. They’re young, rich and in love. What female would not want that type of life with any man? Whitney Wolfe is a beautiful woman who has been blessed with good looks, intelligence, wealth and a great husband. However, she knows that the struggle for women rights is real and she wants to do her part. That is why everyone loves the Big Bad Whitney Wolfe and her company Bumble.

Whitney Wolfe Herd isn’t your average entrepreneur. The one time Southern Methodist University student says she was just an “okay” student. Brilliance in the tech world has helped her thrive in the industry. Her app Bumble is quickly becoming one of the most well known dating applications. The free app has over 27 million downloads. It’s adding 50,000 new users per day. 10% of the users pay a $9.99 monthly subscription fee. That kind of boom doesn’t go unnoticed. She has been honored by national publications for her excellence.
Whitney Wolfe Herd worked with the founder of Badoo to conceive the idea of Bumble. Andrey Adreev first contacted Whitney about the possibility of creating a new dating app. Whitney was striving for something different. She pined for something geared toward women. The eventual founder and CEO of Bumble was hoping to create a cyber world where women could find higher quality dates.
Bumble was created with those thoughts in mind. It launched successfully in 2014. The traffic and appeal hasn’t slowed down since.
Many describe the dating app as “classy.” Bumble allows women to make the first move with men. Men aren’t allowed to reach out to women they have an interest in until a woman has left them a message. It puts more power in the hands of every female. It has brought what some believe to be higher quality dating material. The site utilizes a photo verification process to authenticate users. That keeps fake users off the site. That means more real men to choose from for the women who subscribe.
Whitney Wolfe Herd was part of the marketing team that helped launch Tinder in 2012. She wanted to establish Bumble as something different than Tinder. Her goal was to help women find better dates with incredible men. She wanted to empower women to have control over their selection. Did women like her idea? The statistics don’t lie. Bumble is on pace to haul in over $180 million in revenue in 2018.
Whitney was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1989. She was named to Business Insider’s 30 Most Important Women Under 30 list in 2014. These days Bumble has over 30 employees and continues to grow at a rapid pace. Whitney has a book scheduled to publish next fall. It will be titled “Make the First Move.” She has more future apps geared toward women in development.
