Whitney Wolfe Gives Women A Chance To Take The Lead

Whitney Wolfe is rising in the dating app industry, and much of her praise comes from her perspective. She could have easily set up another dating app company after she left Tinder. She could have created something that looks about the same as everything else that was out there. Wolfe chose to go a different route and actually work on creating an app that would be geared towards empowerment for women.

She wanted women that were using the Bumble dating app to be able to make the first move. This is why she felt the need to create Bumble. She wanted to have a voice that could not be silenced in a male-dominated industry. Whitney Wolfe has proven herself to be a vigorous force in the dating app industry by creating what she has often referred to as a feminist dating app. There are few dating apps that carry this type of connection, but Whitney Wolfe knew that it was time for this, and she believed that this app would do well. So far millions of men and women have connected through the Bumble dating app. It is an app that is different from a lot of other things out there because it gives people access to a new dating perspective.

Women no longer have to wait for the man to make a move. In fact Whitney Wolfe has made it possible for more people to connect by giving women the opportunity to decide if they are going to respond. This is an innovative way for women to take charge while men wait for a response from females. This is all something that has to be done within a 24-hour period through the Bumble app. If women do not respond within this time frame the potential match disappears from their history.
