Whitney Wolfe is changing the way 20-year-olds date–and make friends. Given her busy and fast pace lifestyle, she understands better than anyone how difficult it is to make friends. It is especially difficult for young entrepreneurs like her herself to find time to make friends while they are also advancing their careers and working overtime. Given her success with the dating app Bumble, Whitney Wolfe realized that a dating app for friends could be just as successful. That is how Bumble BFF came to life and it is now available as an extension inside the Bumble app. It uses a different matching system from the dating side of the app in order to help you create long lasting and platonic friendships.
Bumble BFF allows you to make friends with anyone in your area. You can choose the maximum distance you want to travel and Bumble does the rest. It takes the information you have either entered into the dating side of the app or on Facebook and uses that to determine who you would get along with. Unlike the dating app, Bumble BFF lets either party reach out first. If there is something you think looks awesome, you have the option to contact them before being matched. Bumble BFF is designed by women so you do not have to worry about being matched with someone romantically if that is not what you want. It is a great way to expand your friendships and meet new people.
Whitney Wolfe created and founded Bumble in 2014. At just 26 years old, she is Chief Executive Officer and racing toward success. She is also the co-founder of Tinder and it prompted her to create a dating app that is focused on women. Bumble is now one of the most popular dating apps available.
