Dating apps are efficient and quite easy to use. The application makes use of algorithms to match you with a person who has similar interests and preferences. Bumble by Whitney Wolfe, is unique in that, it is the women who get to initialize and control the interaction. That is as opposed to the other popular platforms, like Tinder, when men are generally assumed to play the dominant role.
One of the merits of using the apps is that you get connected to mutual friends. That helps to foster a sense of trust, and it inspires lots of confidence. There’s nothing as terrifying as going out, in another city, to meet a complete stranger.
For instance, if you are a programmer or any other professional, you could customize your settings to only show you the profiles of people you share the same line of work in. The filters make for an easier to control dating experience as opposed to the case when using the generalized dating sites.
The inspiration to set up Bumble for Whitney Wolfe, came from the horrible experiences she, and other women, received online. The 25-year-old Whitney Wolfe was quoted in an interview with the LA Business Journal saying that she was mostly interested in creating a platform whereby the participants would be held accountable for their actions and utterances towards women.
24 Hour Wait Feature
A unique aspect of Bumble is that it has a 24-hour wait feature. The feature works on the premise that if a woman doesn’t reply to your message in the first 24 hours, then that automatically signals that the lady is not interested and the chat automatically disappears.
