Whitney Wolfe has been the face of the dating industry since the time she launched Bumble, a dating app that only allows women to initiate contact. It is a unique idea but made a lot of difference in the industry that was subtly, dominated by men for a long time. Whitney Wolfe knew that abuse and bullying had been part and parcel of the online dating game for a long time, and it was something she wasn’t comfortable with. And, while there are many ways that the dating apps can try and wither out abuse by members, Whitney Wolfe came up with an interesting idea of not letting the men contact women first, but the other way around. It is an idea that seems to have provided an excellent result so far, especially with Bumble having more than 25 million members now, and is on the top five lists of most downloaded dating apps.
Recently, Whitney Wolfe has been in the news not only for her success in the dating business or how fast Bumble has been growing in popularity but also for her dream wedding in Italy with restaurateur Michael Herd. Whitney Wolfe, however, didn’t meet Michael Herd on Bumble or Tinder for that matter, but in Aspen, where they were both vacationing during Christmas. They first met in 2013, and in 2015, Michael Herd proposed Whitney Wolfe in a ranch in Texas during sunset, and Whitney Wolfe explained the entire scene to Vogue in an engaging manner. It is when the bells for wedding planning started to ring, and finally, during their celebratory trip to Italy, they finalized Positano, Italy.
Whitney Wolfe is known as a clever planner, and she has ensured that her wedding is as lavish and unique as possible. Whitney Wolfe was involved in every stage of her dream wedding to ensure that the result is exactly as she planned. Similarly, Whitney takes care of her business in the same manner and is involved with all the various departments to ensure that Bumble offers unique, efficient, and reliable services to the members. Recently, Whitney Wolfe added two new categories to Bumble, which are Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz. It would help the members not only to find friends as well as business partners online. Whitney Wolfe has helped changed the dynamics of the social dating networks and how it used to function altogether with the introduction of Bumble.
