Whitney Wolfe Herd Helps Users Find Love, Friendship, and More

We live in an insanely busy world. Many people have commitments such as family, friends, job, hobbies, exercising, and more. All of these commitments make it hard for someone to branch out, meet someone new, and start a relationship. Although society is busier than ever, it also means we are lonelier than ever. Nowadays, it’s harder than ever to make friends. People are independent and are less inclined to branch out and experience face to face interaction.

Luckily, there are people working hard to change the loneliness that we feel. One of those people is Whitney Wolfe Herd. Whitney is the very successful founder and CEO of Bumble which is America’s fastest growing dating app. For those who don’t know what Bumble is, it’s an app where women get to make the first move. Whitney believes in empowering women and she realized that other dating apps didn’t exactly make women feel comfortable. That’s how this one was born. Men can’t contact women unless they decide to send the first message. Whitney has seen such success with Bumble that she’s growing her company even more.

Bumble is now branching out with new apps. There’s now a Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz for those who are looking for more than just a relationship. Whitney herself said that she remembers the days when she struggled to make friends and wished there was an easier way. Therefore, she created an easier way. Bumble BFF is simply an app for those looking for friends. It can be based on geographical location and interests which helps to forge strong connections.

Whitney Wolfe Herd has been highly successful and wants to help other women feel the same.

No More Swiping Right for Whitney Wolfe

She decided to design bamboo tote bags and the proceeds from the sales benefited oil clean-up efforts. She created a non-profit with Patrick Aufdenkamp called the “help us project” which benefited from her bag sales. When she graduated Southern Methodist University Whitney traveled to Southeast Asia to help in orphanages. By the age of 24 Whitney Wolfe founded Bumble.

Whitney and Michael recently secretly got married in the Villa Tre Ville Positano which is located along the Amalfi Coast. While the couple has not publically announced their marriage; the guests at their wedding were posting Instagram photos of the ceremony and reception. Whitney looked absolutely stunning in her Oscar de la Renta gown. Guests made sure to hashtag all of the shared photos with homeiswheretheherdis. This is a fun play off of Michael’s last name.

The wedding ceremony and reception were absolutely awe inspiring. The tables were adorned with beautiful place settings and natural soft light from candle sticks strategically placed throughout the arrangement. Guests were able to take in the amazing views of the inspiring Italian coast. The reception venue was covered with a natural lemon tree canopy which played into the lemon accents of the meal.

I Recommend Skout To Anyone Looking For A Relationship

I always hated dating, and I had a good reason why. I dated a guy one time, and after I broke up with him, he broke the windows out of my house. He even managed to break the windows that were upstairs, and I found this out because I found the rocks on my floors upstaiArs. I did nothing wrong to the guy, I only broke up with him because I caught him cheating. I guess nobody likes to be told that they’re wrong, so he broke my windows as a result. Yes, I did have him arrested, but it turned me off of the whole dating scene.

Unbelievably, I let my friend convince me to join the Skout network, so I could find a date. I was so terrified of men that I didn’t think I could possibly find a good one online. I heard stories about men being psychotic, crazy, and just plain weird on the Internet. I did do some thinking, and I realize that if a local person could break out my windows, then someone online couldn’t be any worse. I sat down one day, and I created a profile on Skout, and then I began looking for someone.

I put up my special interests, but I decided to have a little bit of fun with my profile. I did put in my profile that I wasn’t looking for anyone crazy, so there wouldn’t be any confusion. I let it be known that I’m a fun person, I like to go out to fancy restaurants, and I love going to the movies. After I put my picture on my profile, I quickly started getting messages from other people. Some people even started sending me greetings, and they were really cute. With all the attention I was getting, I started liking Skout.

On days that I wasn’t searching for a relationship, I would socialize with people through the network. I even took the time to download the Skout application onto my mobile devices, so I could use Skout when I was out on the road. I started using the Skout application all the time, and when I took the bus home from work, I’d be on Skout. I’ve used the network now for over a month, and even though I’ve found some guys I’m interested in, I’m not dating yet. I have high hopes for the Skout network, and I would definitely recommend it to others.
