Bumble has been improved a lot over the past four years since it released, but its main premise has stayed the same, which is giving the control to women using the app. No longer can men start up conversations with every single girl they see or even worse, harass girls that do not respond or give answers that they like. This will remain a core aspect of Bumble for as long as it exists and it has really gained a lot of traction, especially for women looking into dating apps.

There are various other dating platforms on the market today, including Tinder which Whitney Wolfe played a role in creating, but none of the offer women a safe and secure method for conversing with men. Nearly all other dating platforms have the same complaints from their users, mostly women. Most often, this comes down to men being harassing or overbearing with their approaches, including derogatory comments or behavior. Bumble will always give women the freedom to stay out of harm’s way and make contact whenever they feel ready and comfortable and it is currently Bumble’s biggest selling point.
