We want to inspire and encourage women to make the first move in all aspects of their lives," Whitney Wolfe, CEO of the dating app Bumble, tells Elite Daily. Wolfe, initially a co-founder of Tinder, left the company after suing for sexual harassment Tinder settled and ended up creating Bumble, the more feminist, female-friendly dating app that allows women to safely take control over their dating life. I asked Wolfe how the concept of women messaging men has changed dating.
How do women feel making that first move? She explains, We firmly believe it's made dating a far more balanced playing field. Women feel confident making the first move and men love having the pressure taken off. Once people get a sense of how ridiculous the notion of men having to make the first move is, they tend to see things more clearly Women are encouraged to go after everything they want in life except for a partner, and that's nothing short of ridiculous.
