Bumble - The New Tinder That Puts Ladies First

A new dating app has appeared on the scene and it’s going to be a girl’s new best friend.
A gap in the dating market has formed recently as more and more women are coming away from Tinder. Ever since it began, the app was racking up complaints about some of the misogynistic men who use Tinder to push the boundaries, just because they can.

Cue Bumble, an app that claims it is ‘Changing the rules of the game.’ It’s the same as Tinder, with all the swiping left and right, but the difference begins once you make a match. The moment two of you are matched together you have a 24 hour period to begin a conversation; otherwise the match expires and it is gone forever.

But here’s the catch: the girl has to be the one to start the conversation. The guy can’t do anything until she does. This is all in an effort to prevent the sexist remarks, the dirty comments and the hideous pickup lines that comes with Tinder.

The creator of the app, Whitney Wolfe, was actually a co-founder of Tinder. She filed a sexual harassment complaint against her co-founder and ex-boyfriend which led to her setting up a more female friendly rival to Tinder.

The concept is great. It puts women in charge and could prevent a lot of pointless comments from floating around the digital dating scene. But what’s to stop the really sick men out there making a comment after the girl instigates the conversation? Not a lot. But with Bumble’s slogan as “classy girls Bumble”, we can hope that the classy men follow, leaving the desperate, sexual predator types to Tinder.
