International dating a nice looking guy online
But there’s one essential difference: on Bumble, only women can send a message first.For Wolfe, 25, that key difference is about “changing the landscape” of online dating by putting women in control of the experience.
“So I was like, ‘Ya, I do want to date all of you.'” She says she was disappointed that few of the guys she messaged wrote back, but Jen Stith, a spokeswoman for Bumble, says the company is considering adding a time limit to encourage guys to respond more quickly to messages. “Because girls like it,” says Bryan Oltman, a 28-year old Bumble user and software engineer who used to work at OKCupid.“He can’t say you’re desperate, because the app made you do it,” she says, adding that she tells her friends to make the first move and just “blame Bumble.” Matches expire after 24 hours, which provides an incentive for women to reach out before it’s too late (the women-message-first feature is only designed for straight couples—if you’re LGBTQ, either party can send the first message.) Wolfe says she had always been comfortable making the first move, even though she felt the stigma around being too forward.“I would say ‘I’m just going to go up to him,’ and all my girlfriends were like ‘Oh no no no no, you can’t do that,'” she says.In essence, the app is an attempt to answer her train of questions above.It works just like other dating apps—users see pictures of other users, swipe right if they like what they see, and get matched if the interest is mutual.The name writes itself - Quick is the place where singles mingle together, chat and build up some flirty connections in one click.

“You swiped right in your head just now,” she says.
Wolfe was a co-founder at Tinder and widely credited with boosting that app’s popularity on college campuses.
She was fired in the midst of a breakup with Justin Mateeen, the service’s chief marketer.
