Give The Woman Some Power,’ Says Whitney Wolfe

Whitney Wolfe says that when a man feels rejected he retaliates with aggression. Consequently, the above causes more abusive relationships. To reduce the aggression in relationships, Bumble App, which was founded by Whitney Wolfe gives the women power over men as they make the first move.

Other than that, Whitney says that whenever the woman makes the first move, the man knows that the power is not in his hands but in the woman’s; consequently, he behaves more carefully and avoids any chances of harming her.

What Prompted The Formation Of Bumble?
Whitney was a co-founder in Tinder alongside her ex-boyfriend Justine Mateen and the other male co-founders. However, her relationship with Justin went sour; he became abusive to her calling her a whore in public and humiliating her badly. Moreover, Justin and the other partners asked Whitney out of Tinder, saying that her presence as a woman made the organization look like a joke. To make it worse, the partners paid her no compensation for her contribution to the company. Whitney Wolfe, who was deeply hurt by the betrayal, decided to seek justice in court. She was awarded a ransom in damages and that was when she decided to fight for women. She decided to start an App that would help women be the givers and not the takers.

Bumble BFF
Bumble BFF, unlike Bumble, is exclusively for women. Whitney realized that the modern day woman takes a relatively long time before settling in marriage. During this period of waiting, the woman undergoes so many nasty experiences, which would be made easier if she had close and trusted friends to her expenses with. Consequently, Bumble BFF allows a woman to specify the kind of friends she desires to have and she chooses from the portfolio provided to her. Moreover, the app helps women who move into new locations as they use the app to make new friends.

Bumble App Values
Honesty, respect, kindness, and no nudity are the core values that are employed at Bumble. One is expected to be kind to their partners and to be honest in all their dealings. Rudeness and nudity are also prohibited and one is barred from the site on failing to adhere.
