It could ultimately set the tone for the relationship too, if it gets there. I don’t care if you’re 18 and this is one of your first times ever dating anyone, or if you're 35 and you’re back in the game, we want to be available and relatable for women of any age.
However, it was still very important for me to do something with social responsibility that could give girls power.

This time around, she hopes to address all the things Tinder does wrong.
As the one of the cofounders of Tinder, 25-year-old Whitney Wolfe helped build the wildly popular dating app from the ground up.After leaving the company last year amid a very public sexual harassment and workplace discrimination lawsuit, she's now back on the startup scene with dating app Bumble.Racked checked in with Wolfe from a Bumble retreat in rural Texas to discuss empowering users, dating confidence, and why she doesn’t plan to replace Tinder. It's such an impressionable age for girls, and it's a time they're likely to be affected negatively by bullying.The original goal was to make something similar to Snapchat or Instagram where you could only talk to one another in kindness, whether it’s through emojis or pre-approved comments. Out of the blue I heard from Andrey Andreev, who is my partner at Bumble now.
He’s an entrepreneur who is the founder and CEO of a very powerful social network called Badoo. He wanted to know what I was up to after Tinder and changed my mind about a couple of things. He wanted me to explore getting back into the dating market.
He told me it was a good place to stay right now, particularly with both of our backgrounds, and repositioned my opinion on the space.
