I always found it bizarre or strange that there was this unwritten set of rules around how a woman could interact with a man, in terms of starting a conversation.
While a man traditionally is always expected to make the first move, he risks rejection in a real way.
And the restriction you mention is that women must begin conversations on Bumble?
How do you think it’s changed the way things work in the online dating world? On Bumble, by having the lady make the first move, [the man] doesn’t feel rejection or aggression—he feels flattered. just like a bar, you’re never going to see a sign on your favorite bar on your block that says “only for hookups tonight” or “don’t come in if you don’t want to go home with someone.” It’s a place to meet people, it’s a place to be, and whatever you want to do with your interactions there is really up to you.If you wanted to meet a nice man, you were expected to socialize often, and work was guarded in a different way—it was a different era.Now, women are expected to be equal to men in so many capacities—financially, career-wise, in education—yet the one disconnect was, and is, with relationships.And, sometimes, we just want to go home and get in our pajamas and sit on the couch and do work from our laptops while eating take-out.For our mothers, traditionally, that was unacceptable.Perhaps still more impressive: the ratio of women to men using the app, which is just about even—uncommon for this sector. What I have seen with the rise of social media is that children are not facing bullying on a playground, they are facing it on their cell phones. I received an e-mail from my current Bumble partner, Andrey Andreev, who is the founder and C. He said, “Whitney, you’re very familiar with the dating space. If you look at where we are in the current heteronormative rules surrounding dating, the unwritten rule puts the woman a peg under the man—the man feels the pressure to go first in a conversation, and the woman feels pressure to sit on her hands. If we can take some of the pressure off the man and put some of that encouragement in the woman’s lap, I think we are taking a step in the right direction, especially in terms of really being true to feminism.
