Dating apps are used rampantly today by people of all age groups as it helps them find dates much readily than in real life. Many people are shy to ask others out while many others just don’t get enough opportunity to meet new people. Whatever be the reason, to make social life more happening, dating apps have proved to be useful in the last few years. The people can easily download many different types of dating apps, and within minutes, people can get started to finding and talking to new people online. However, women are not always safe with these dating apps, and might not have the best of experiences as they expect.
Whitney Wolfe Herd believes that with the help of technology, the experience of the women can be improved and may even be made more fun and exciting. It is what she managed to do with Bumble, which is one of the top five dating apps on the market today. Whitney Wolfe Herd is the founder of Bumble, and she has designed the app in a way so that the women are not subjected to any unsolicited vulgar messages or bullying, which is often the case at the dating apps. The primary problem, Whitney Wolfe Herd, believes with the dating app is that anyone can message anyone, which shouldn’t be allowed or at least be restricted.

Whitney Wolfe Herd focused on making Bumble a female-centric dating app from the very beginning and knew that men with progressive mindset wouldn’t mind it. In Bumble, men cannot contact women, and only women are allowed to contact the men they find interesting or good-looking. Meet the Tinder Co-Founder Trying to Change Online Dating Forever
Once the contact is made by women, the conversation can move ahead two-ways as usual. The decision of giving power to women to make the first move was bold, but Whitney Wolfe Herd decided it is the best way to move ahead and provide users with the way to build meaningful relationships. She says that men who are not happy with the app can stay away, which has helped in filtering the narrow-minded men from the app automatically. Whitney Wolfe Herd says that it is good for Bumble that men who do not like the women-centric approach do not sign up for Bumble. The revenue of Bumble has been multiplying itself since its launch and is expected to double to $200 million by the end of the year 2018.
