They say that since their launch in December of last year, over 1 million conversations have been had (which is a more valuable number than how many matches have been made).
The whole premise of Bumble is so much more attractive to me than Tinder or Hinge because of the fact that Bumble prevents men from making the first move.

In her article entitled, “Tinder fearmongering won’t erase the underlying problem of porn culture,” Meghan Murphy cites two women and their experience with OKCupid and Tinder: “Agh, look at this,” one of the young women interviewed says, looking at her Ok Cupid messages in a bar.I don’t want to get into a great big political discussion right now, but if you’re the type of guy that opens with those lines on dating sites, seek help.The bottom line, here, is something had to change and Bumble is a fantastic way to mitigate that problem.In these cases, either person has to make a move within 24 hours before that connection disappears.” The founding of Bumble is rather interesting, as well.CEO & Founder, Whitney Wolfe, was also a co-founder of Tinder.
