The Initial Inspiration Behind Whitney Wolfe’s Bumble

It was one fateful day that Whitney Wolfe has noticed her reluctance to text a guy first. One thing that she was told when she talked about it to her friends is that it is one of the major sins of flirtation. Guys these days are expecting women to make the first move. Some would argue that a lot of women make the first move. It is just that a lot of guys have a hard time picking up on it because they find women to be more subtle than men. As a result of this talk, Whitney Wolfe has decided to build Bumble.

During the talk, Whitney Wolfe has talked about the need for some kind of set up where women are the ones that have to make the first move. One thing that Whitney has compared it to is the woman having the man’s number but the man not having the woman’s number. The only way something could happen is if the woman makes it happen. As a result, Bumble was born. All Whitney Wolfe had to do was develop the app and work out all of the kinks so that it can work well for both men and women.

Bumble has turned out to be liberating for both men and women. However, it also helps out in the homosexual area as well. For two men, either men are allowed to message one another in order to get the ball going. However, when it comes to heterosexuality, not only are women encouraged to make the first move, but they are also urged to make a move within 24 hours of being given the match. Afterwards, the match is gone and their window of opportunity is closed. Whitney Wolfe has definitely put together something that is an answer to both men and women’s wishes.
