When Whitney Wolfe started working on her own project, her original intention was not to make it an online dating app. She originally wanted to start a social network for young girls. The whole purpose behind it was to give young girls a chance to connect with one another and share positive messages. Among the things they would do is share photos. However, someone convinced her to start a dating app. This has resulted in the birth of Bumble. Whitney Wolfe didn’t want to get involved in online dating because of her experiences with Tinder. She was also interested in making sure that girls and women have something positive.

Whitney Wolfe has decided that she was going to use Bumble as a means to bring empowerment to women by giving women the option to make the first move. While men are still allowed to sign up for Bumble, their accounts are limited. They are not able to message women. However, they can message other men if they are interested in forming relationships with others. Women, on the other hand, can message as many men that they are interested in. Also, if they are given a match, then they are supposed to contact the match within 24 hours.
Whitney Wolfe would bring her company a little closer to its original intention when she has started adding extensions to the dating app. One of the extensions of Bumble is BFF. This allows women to meet with one another and become friends. One of the purposes of BFF is for women to meet with one another and share positive messages with one another. One thing that Whitney Wolfe has realized is that even women can be toxic with one another if they are not matched with one another. Therefore, she has made sure that women have a platform for meeting one another.
