Even for the most casual and successful daters, it can be a challenge to go out into the world and meet people. For one thing, a lot of the places where people go are considered inappropriate for looking for a date. For instance, people consider bars, malls, grocery stores, workplaces, and gyms as off limits for asking for a date. This unfortunately leaves people with very little in options as to what they can do in order to look for a date. While there are dating apps, this doesn’t seem to make the objective easier for some people.

Fortunately, Whitney Wolfe has an alternative that will save people from resigning to being a monk or a nun. This dating app alternative is called Bumble. Bumble works differently from other apps in that it only allows certain groups of people to respond to a match. Men do not have the ability to send a message to anyone. Instead, women are encouraged to message a match so that they will get the date that they want as opposed to having to click through the tons of messages that they tend to get from thirsty boys. Whitney Wolfe has definitely cleared out all of the clutter that women often have to face with dating.
Whitney Wolfe has shown that she is thoughtful and that she sees dating apps as something meant for dating. Therefore, women with profiles are going to find that they are going to have a more quieter time with their apps. However, with Bumble women are encouraged to message their match before they disappear. For one thing, if they don’t message their matches before they disappear, then they may not get a chance with that person again. Whitney Wolfe has not only made dating easier for both men and women, but she has also increased the sense of urgency for female users.
