Cofounder dating site
After being in a relationship for the last 15 years I wasn’t sure how this dating thing was gonna go, never mind online dating… During our first date I knew we were headed in the right direction it’s now been over a year and we are still loving every minute of it..
If she doesn’t start the conversation within 24 hours, the match disappears.
Wolfe has described her strategy as "Sadie Hawkins-inspired," and just three months since its official launch, the Austin-based startup boasts more than a million matches, as well as a global network of ambassadors (cool girls enlisted to spread the "buzz" about Bumble). I wanted to start a social platform app that would encourage kindness among a younger demographic of women, more of the junior high or high school set.
Racked checked in with Wolfe from a Bumble retreat in rural Texas to discuss empowering users, dating confidence, and why she doesn’t plan to replace Tinder. It's such an impressionable age for girls, and it's a time they're likely to be affected negatively by bullying.
It’s about time someone knew what to make for an app like this. Having friends by your side makes the whole thing more fun, more safe, and more authentic.
I don’t think the other site creators are as enthusiastic and about helping people as these entrepreneurs are and that makes a huge difference… We believe that Friends/Family provide the social context and affirmations we all need while trying to find a match.
