DAILYMAIL.CO.UK - Mar 5 - Dating app Bumble, which now boasts 12.5M users, is the brainchild of Whitney Wolfe, a 27-year-old entrepreneur. 'I'm a very confident person, but I felt as if I was always supposed to be more submissive when it came to dating,' says Whitney, former VP of marketing at Tinder. 'If I make the first move, I'm perceived as a crazy girl. That's not fair. With Bumble, we're serious about putting women in the driver's seat', she says. 'The men who use Bumble appreciate a confident woman, a woman who has a voice,' she continues. She believes this reversal of stereotypical gender roles itself encourages better behaviour. In a little over two years, Bumble reports that it has had ~5k engagements and weddings.
