Believe it or not, the modern feminist wave that has impacted our culture has only been around since 2015. Yes, there were signs that feminism was catching on long before that year, but in 2015 that’s when the feminist agenda started to impact modern American society. Whitney Wolfe and her company Bumble was a key player in this modern movement.
Whitney Wolfe explains that when Bumble first emerged, the site was very polarizing. It was created to help relieve some of the pain that Whitney Wolfe experienced in the past. She was a woman scorned in the tech industry. She was unfairly given the name “lawsuit girl” because she won a settlement against a former online dating company that treated her inhumanely.
The name of this organization was Tinder. Whitney used to work for Tinder as co-founder until she started to run into problems regarding sexual harassment and gender discrimination. She managed to save evidence that proved these unwanted situations were happening. After she gathered evidence she then used it in a court of law to win her settlement. She then took this money to start Bumble.
By the time that Wolfe started Bumble she was suffering from the backlash of what had happened at Tinder. Very few people in the tech industry wanted to be bothered with her. She almost missed out on her opportunity to start Bumble. Andrey Andreev a technology businessman and guru took a chance on her. He helped her to fund the starting of Bumble.
Wolfe used her Bumble site to bring healing to herself. More importantly, it was created to put women first in the world or to spread the feminist agenda. Whitney Wolfe no longer wants to play by the traditional rules of male dominance. She no longer wanted men to subject her to their misogynist agenda or their villainous ways. Wolfe is not woman that wants to be scorned anymore. Her feminist attitude has impacted over 30 million people who use her site to find love. Whitney Wolfe and her company Bumble has helped to shape the modern feminist movement that is taking place today.
There are plenty of apps being developed and released every day. However, only a select few of them are actually worthwhile. Among the apps that are worthwhile are dating apps. Dating apps are some of the most popular social media apps because it helps people meet up with others that they find interesting and possibly form a meaningful connection. However, one thing that the success of the encounter depends on is social skills. For one thing, social skills are still needed even in this electronically connected age. At the same time, the right mindset is needed in order to make it work.
Fortunately, some dating apps can help one overcome whatever hang ups he may be having about the dating world. There are many hang ups that people have. One common hang up that people carry to the dating realm is the “nice guy/jerk” mindset. It is a common belief that nice guys finish last, but it is not because they are nice that the girl rejects them. Fortunately, there are social media apps that help people get beyond their pitfalls and find greater success with the opposite sex. If anything, they can still be gently and get the woman.
One helpful social media app for nice guys and other people in the spectrum is Skout. Skout is a very helpful app because of all of the options it carries. The user can message someone. The user could also engage in chats about different topics which include dating and relationships. It helps to share different insights about the activity in order for someone to have a better shot at the dating game. When it comes to dating, it is not that simple, but some people make it more complicated than it needs to be. When one finds the right balance, he will be able to find better relationships.
In order to take advantage of Skout to the fullest, it is important to sign up and provide honest information. The best bet is to upload a photo. It can’t be an old photo. It has to be a photo that represents the user as he is today. However, it has to be the best picture that he could take. If it looks somewhat professional, then that will also work. This will help his chances with finding a mate. After all, both men and women are visual creatures. Even women respond to appearances.
With dating apps, it does make things a little easier to meet people. The right dating apps will set the user up with someone who has similar beliefs and values to the user. This makes it more likely for them to be compatible. The only thing is that the user must have a thick skin. Rejection is very likely in this game. No one is going to be attractive to a majority of people. Different people have different types. Therefore, it is important for the user to take rejection as one step closer to finding his type. Some users may have a longer path to walk than others.
