Whitney Wolfe’s Recent Marriage

Whtiney Wolfe who has shown a lot of passion for relationships and has put together an app that is good for helping women find the right person, has recently gotten married. This is good news for the entrepreneur. This is also a good message to send customers and fans. For one thing, if one is going to be working in the dating and relationships industry, it only helps if she has something that is going to back up her representation. Fortunately, she has had a really good wedding with Michael Herd, who is the Texas Oil Heir.

Whitney Wolfe is a young entrepreneur who has run a lot of successful apps. She has put a lot of thought into what she wants to bring to the industry. With an industry as saturated as dating and relationships, it is very important to come up with something new that is going to stand out from among the others. For one thing, there are tons of dating apps in the market. While each of them have their own quirks, they are more or less similar to each other. Whitney Wolfe has decided that it is important to do something that is going to stand out in many ways.

With Bumble, men are disabled. They do not have the ability to initiate conversation with women. Instead, it is the women that have to talk with the men whenever they are presented with a match. This not only empowers women to initiate conversation with men they are interested in but also falls in line with Whitney Wolfe’s beliefs that there should not be a rule where the man has to do the initiating in the dating game. Women should be allowed to take some initiative to so that could be more likely to have what they want.

While Whitney Wolfe does want to empower women in relationships, she also wants to bring forth some good friendships for women to enjoy. After all, friendships can be every bit as fulfilling as romantic relationships. Women need the right friends so that they can get support if their relationships do not work out.

Dating Apps: The Awkwardness and The Safety

After going through two very short lived relationships my first semester of college, I started feeling bad about myself in the dating world. I was never in a relationship before my first semester of college and didn’t know what a wanted in a potential suitor. So, I started my search for the potential Mr. Right using dating apps on my phone.

The first app I used was the most common dating app that every college student has used at least once: Tinder. I’ve used Tinder once or twice, but the results have often come out as negative. I am very picky with my men to begin with and was constantly swiping left on the app. Many of the potential single men looking for a lady were often very unattractive or unsuitable to my tastes. There were many male friends of mine who were also using the app to find a girl of their own, which also added to the amount of awkwardness from using Tinder. After a while, I thought of Tinder as extremely overrated.

Skout on skoutorganic, the second dating app that I used, was a much better substitute to Tinder. For starters, Skout bans the use of bathroom selfies (I felt that the bathroom selfies added on to the awkwardness that was Tinder). Also, Skout didn’t just focus on being a “dating app.” It focused on increasing your social circle in general, not just trying to find a potential suitor. Plus, Skout aims to protect their users from any potential harm and prevents minors (those under 18) from signing up. A good call on their part and is much more tame than Tinder’s wild style of left swipes and right swipes.

Eventually, I gave up on the online and cell phone dating world in order to focus more on building myself as a stronger individual. But, to those who continue to use dating apps in order to find either their “future soulmate” or a “one night stand,” I give you my words of advice.

Things will get awkward on dating apps. Someone will post inappropriate photos of themselves just to feel like he or she is cool. You will bump into someone that you’ve met on campus and think to yourself “That person uses Tinder?”

But the most important thing to take away from this is to be careful. What might look attractive to you on Tinder might not look as attractive in real life. In fact, that user might not even be who you think at all as there are still many predators out there using apps to lure young girls and women and take them away from society. Dating apps like Skout help prevent predators from doing so. Be smart and know your right from your wrong.
