Whitney Wolfe is everything one could ever want in their youth. The tech entrepreneur is young, full of energy, beautiful, hip and fruitful in the corporate world. Whitney Wolfe is the brainchild of dating app Bumble. In the recent days, Bumble has gained more popularity than other apps in the dating scene owing to the great features that Whitney Wolfe has embedded in the application.

Bumble works in a way that no other dating app does. It allows only women to make the first move whenever they identify a match on the platform. This approach to the dating experience couldn’t be timelier given that today more individuals are agitating for equality between sexes. For a long time, making advances has been left for men. According to Whitney Wolfe, it doesn’t make sense that men and women are equal in marriage yet women are discouraged from making the first move whenever they spot a potential partner.

Recently, Whitney Wolfe declined a buyout offer for Bumble. The $450 million offer was mostly seen as an undervaluation of the enterprise that is fast rising in the social space. It has taken a lot of effort and dedication to growing Bumble into its current status. The popularity of Bumble has given Whitney Wolfe a lot of admiration in the corporate world. Business Insider ranks Whitney Wolfe among the top 30 technology female influencers in the United States.

While Whitney Wolfe created the dating app Bumble, the entrepreneur seems to have already met her match and was only keen on ensuring that others share in the spoils of healthy relationships. Whitney Wolfe recently tied a knot with Michael Herd in a flamboyant ceremony held at Villa Tre Ville in Positano, Italy. Using the cheeky hashtag #Homeiswheretheherdis, the couple let fans and the whole world into their happy moments. Whitney Wolfe wore an elegant Oscar de la Renta gown that flattered her body. The coastal view from the reception hall was breathtaking. The wedding will go down as one of its kind in the coast of Amalfi, Italy.

In as much as Bumble is experiencing steady growth, Whitney Wolfe reckons that the application is set to achieve even more growth. Recently, the company intimated that it would be working on a redesign that will enable users to switch between other platforms such as Bumble networking Bizz and Bumble BFF. Bumble is currently ranked as one of the fastest growing dating platforms in the United States.
