Whitney Wolfe’s wedding is a perfect example of what love can do. She has over the past seven years led the digitization process for dating through creating and managing a couple of online dating apps. The current CEO of Bumble Dating App has even taken the dating game a level higher by making the app an all-female affair. She has used Bumble to hand the dating game to the women to control and has consequently helped women keep-off irresponsible and abusive men. Now in her late 20s, she believes that no woman should be forced to hold back her feelings- whether intimate or not- because she is not socially right to make the first move. According to her, establishing Bumble was a revolution born from within because she felt that it was and still is her right to choose the partner she wishes without being wrongly judged. She recently founded the Bumble BFF, an app through which women can establish friendship with other women without any intimacy.
