Over the past few years, online dating applications have majorly influenced the manner in which singles people interact. Although online dating is always creating room for plenty of interaction with potential suitors, it can as well bear harmful effects. For instance, the current online dating platform is filled with tremendous abuse especially directed from men to women. Apart from that, the online dating Apps have given more power to men than to women. As such, women always feel slightly inferior. A few people have come forward with great ideas on how to approach online dating differently. One such person is Whitney Wolfe.
Whitney Wolfe was born in 1989. She grew up in Salt Lake, Utah and was very close to her father, Michael Wolfe. Like any kid with dreams, she aspired to join school and later focus on building career. Therefore, when she was of age, she joined Southern Methodist University and majored in a bachelor’s degree in international studies. Perhaps that is where she drew the passion for venturing into the interactive communication business. Also, while in school, Wolfe started a retail business in which she sold bamboo tote bags. In return, the business benefitted victims of the BP spillage of oil. Thereafter, she partnered with Patrick Aufdenkamp, a famous celebrity stylist in launching a not-for-profit firm dubbed ‘’Help Us Project.’’ In that project, she used her tote bags to gain national coverage from the press. As such, she was able to grow her business while changing people’s lives at the same time. Right after completing her coursework, Wolfe relocated to Southeast Asia and ventured into working with orphanages to give hope to the less fortunate.
Career and Forming Bumble
After working with the less fortunate, Whitney Wolfe started her career by working for Tinder, a prominent online dating App that allows formidable interactions with the opposite sex. However, she was displeased by how the business was managed. Consequently, she started her dating App called Bumble. Those who have used this application will agree that it is not a typical application that gives men more power than women. Bumble allows women to initiate the conversation by sending a prompt to the opposite sex. In return, the man on the other side decided whether to swipe right or left. All in all, if the request is not accepted within 24 hours, it shall expire, thereby denying the man an opportunity to interact with the particular woman.
From the look of things, Whitney Wolfe has revolutionized online dating by allowing women to start the conversation. That way, it gives them the power to control the direction of the interactive session.
