NY TIMES - Mar 18 - Bumble is a two-year-old dating app created by Ms. Wolfe. Women must make the first move, nudity is verboten and kindness is part of the company mission. Most women who have played the online dating game have cringed or worse on occasion. Accounts like Tindernightmares, detailing the most horrific pickup lines, and ByeFelipe, which calls out men who turn hostile when rejected, have millions of followers. They are snapshots of what it is to be a woman swiping online. Bumble, often called "feminist Tinder", won't change the rules of dating overnight, but in the ecosystem of online dating, it aims to be a little less agonizing for women. The company says its abuse report rate is among the lowest of its competitors, at 0.005%. The company is also offering webinars for college users in which experts advise on subjects from "how to do your taxes" to "how to recognize sexual assault". Ms. Wolfe also said users would soon be able to chat with an on-call gynecologist (her own).
