Before deciding to launch a dating app, Wolfe wanted to launch an Instagram competitor. Andrey Andreev, the cofounder of Badoo who would later help Wofe found Bumble, convinced her to think about the dating space again. Bumble works like this: Both men and women swipe, but only women can start the conversation, and they only have 24 hours from the time they match to start chatting before the connection disappears forever.
One strange thing I noticed on Bumble is that I saw a lot of friends and coworkers on the app within the first few minutes of using it. Two friends also told me this has happened to them. The most annoying thing about Bumble is the notifications. The app lets you know when a match is about to expire, presumably so you can rush in and send that person a message before they slip through your fingers and disappear forever.
You can turn off the notifications, though, as I discovered a couple days in. Three responses in ten minutes. Turns out guys like Bumble because they like not having the pressure of initiating a conversation. But two of my friends and I have gone on a collective 13 dates in the past month courtesy of Bumble, so something about the app seems to be working.
