Whitney Wolfe Turns The Tables On Dating Apps

Online dating apps like Bumble, offer access to many different people for a possible match. You will be able to consider many people that you may not have the time or opportunity to meet in your day-to-day activities Having access to a larger group of potential dates, increases the chances you will find someone who meets your criteria.

The app gives the upper hand to women, since Women make the first moves on the site. Men have to wait to be contacted by a woman before they can communicate. It is sort of the reverse of how dating typically works.

A dating app like Bumble will match you with people who have the important characteristics you want. You may prefer someone of a specific religious background, that matches yours. You can find these people by stipulating this in the search. You may be a night owl, so you would want to be matched with someone who is also a night owl.

By using a dating app, you can communicate with the other person for a period of time, before actually meeting them. This will give you time to get a feel for what they are like and see whether you ‘click’ or not.
