5 Thoughts I Had When Trying Out A Female-Empowering Dating App
Bumble, created by ex-Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe, is a new dating app that lets only women make the first move. I decided to test it out.
Bumble, an app launched in December, uses the same swipe technology as Tinder, except for one big difference: After a match, only the woman can make the first move.
After a match is made, the woman has 24 hours to send a message before it expires and the guy is gone.
Intrigued, I decided to try it out. Here are the thoughts I had:
"Woah, everyone has their Facebook work and education info on here!"
"In general, the guys on here are a lot more normal-looking than on Tinder."
"I actually matched with someone except, oh wait, ~I~ have to make the first move."
"Making the first move in a genuine way is actually kind of tricky."
"Everyone I tried to talk to responded right away, and almost none of them creeped me out."
In conclusion: For as long as I am single, I might stop re-re-re-downloading Tinder and keep Bumble as my dating app of choice.
