Whitney Wolfe At The Center Of Bumble Tremendous Growth

Bumble dating site has been on the market for quite a while now. With a strong membership of 7 million users, Bumble has grown from ‘just another’ dating application to a more reputable and respected dating site. Ever since its formation, the application has always emphasized on the safety of users. This has made many people develop a level of trust with its services. People who use this application have mentioned that the application has somewhat made it easy for them to meet new people. Most of them have ended up making friendship rather than forming a romantic relationship.

The platform has been seen by many as a way of breaking the ice and initiating a conversation. As many would be shy to approach a stranger, Bumble has made it possible for one to know and meet new people through its ‘Matching’ feature. By using the information in your profile, the application
can find the right match for you.

Even though it’s a great feature, the match, however, doesn’t last long. Your match disappears within 24 hours. By matching potential dates, it eliminates the hustle of trying to figure out who has the qualities that you admire.

Stable and long lasting relationships have been built through dating apps like Bumble. These relationships have escalated to marriage or long-term partnership.
