Not all people get on dating sites for the same reasons. The fact is that there are many different reasons that people try to go on dates. While one of the common reasons for dating is to meet someone and eventually get married, people can and often do date just to go out and have fun as well as meet people. Whitney Wolfe Herd is one of the people who have dated with the purpose of finding someone she can marry. However, she has also designed Bumble with the sole purpose of giving people the opportunity to find people who share the same purposes in dating and life.
Whitney Wolfe Herd has done one thing different with her dating app and that is encourage women to approach men online. This is one more taste of the freedom and equality that women get to enjoy with empowerment. Women get to browse among all of the profiles that they find interesting so that they can find someone that they are interested in and message them. It is up to the men whether they want to message back or not. There are also many other things that this does for women and their sense of self worth.
One of the worst things that people can do is fill out their profiles in a way that is not truthful in order to have a chance with a certain person that has caught their eye. One of the issues with this is that people often have themselves matched with someone who turns out to not be right for the person after all. For instance, one person who just wants to have a casual date finds herself with a man who wants a committed relationship because he has decided to write on his profile that he is not looking for anything serious.
The best part about Bumble from Whitney Wolfe Herd is that it makes it easier for women and men to find someone. When they find the right people with Bumble, a lot of magic tends to happen. For one thing, they find themselves in the beginning of what could be a beautiful relationship.
