The use of dating apps is no longer a controversial thing as more and more people are embracing it by the day because of the many great benefits it has. Statistics show that roughly 5% of all serious relationships and marriages began on a dating site. Whitney Wolfe started Bumble to provide something unique and different from other run-of-the-mill dating sites available. It is safe and gives users the opportunity to meet people who are compatible with them outside their usual circles. Using a dating app saves you a lot of time and money that you would have spent going on dates only to get disappointed because your date does not have the same interests as you do. Through a dating app like Bumble, you can establish exactly what it is you are after before you agree to meet up with someone.
