For the first time I was able to truly appreciate the degree to which people can hide behind a screen,” Wolfe said. Ultimately the desire to change the internet translated into a desire to change the way dating took place on the internet. Wolfe’s firm, Bumble, turns the dating world on its head. On Bumble, girls make the first move. Unlike other dating apps, guys can’t send the first message after a match.
Once a match is made, the girl must message the guy within 24 hours otherwise the match disappears forever. Our team firmly believes — and there is data to back this up — that when the power goes to the woman, it takes the pressure off of the male to act in a macho aggressive manner,” Wolfe said. This, according to Wolfe, translates into conversations between matches that are less aggressive, more respectful, and have a greater potential of turning into something more meaningful. Currently, the app has amassed over 11 million users and is expanding into non-dating services such as Bumble Biz, which aims to help people build business connections.
