Is Bumble a feminist app? Find out here

Bumble is an app which is very similar to other dating apps and the concept of the app is also not something very new. However, there is one feature of the app that makes it a pretty feminist. If you download the app, you will get to know that only women can make the first move on such apps. if you are a man, you can not make any move unless the women are interested in you. Other than this, all rest of the things such as gender, personal information, sexual orientation, pictures, interest is the same as other apps.

According to a famous magazine, what makes Bumble stand out is- “women text first” feature in hetersoexual equations. But when it comes to same sex equations, either party can initiate the conversation. Many people have seen this as an empowering feature for women, that inadvertently gives them an upper hand in the conversation initiation process, perhaps because they can pick and choose who to text and who not to text. Interestingly, if no texts are sent by women within 24 hours, the match expires, and the conversation window is suspended. It is perhaps this “empowering feature” that drove Bumble to market itself as a “feminist” app.

Pakistan bans dating apps such as Tinder and Grindr

The country has also issued a final notice to TikTok and asked the platform to remove the indecent content.

Three things you must know while dating

If you are dating someone, you know that there are loads of do’s and don’t which you must follow. So in this article, we are going to learn some of those three things that you must do while dating.  So let us begin reading the same

  1. Clear with your intentions- No matter what, you must be very clear with your intentions. If you are dating someone, you should know whether you are serious or not and if you are, then you must treat your loved ones like the same. The intentions should be clear always.
  2. Don’t mess around- Be as loyal as you can. Do not mess around your relationship just because you like someone else. If you don’t want to be in a relationship, take a break or confess instead of messing around.
  3. Always take out time- No matter how busy you are, you must take out enough time for your relationship and partner. Do not be that busy that you are not able to even check on the person you love.

So these are some of the things you should do if you love someone.

Finally an Indian app for LGBTQ+ users

After gay marriages are legal in India, the LGBTQ+ group had to face many difficulties. things were still not normal to them and hence, people used to see them from a different aspect. However, a good news is that finally in India, there is a LGBTQ+ users app available and here is the interview with the makers of the app. Let us read that here.

What was the idea behind creating the app?

After Section 377 was struck down, we realised how there weren’t platforms for people to meet. We read a survey that only six per cent of those in the LGBTQ+ community (in India) have come out of the closet — on social media and personally to their peers. We wanted to create a space where even the closeted people could interact with each other, and choose to be anonymous till they want. This could also be an opportunity for them to come out — especially those who don’t have enough people to reach out and talk to.

Does being an Indian app also influence your approach?

We do not emphasise on giving a photo. We were very sceptical about this, but we have got a very good response. The community wants to connect with more people who are like them and find solace in talking to others going through the same issues. We have a strong verification process so we are able to filter out fake or junk profiles pretty early on. In the future, we may ask members to upload a photo but we will still want people to talk about themselves. We want to change the perspective of LGBTQ+ dating from hookups to serious relationships. In the Indian scenario, we are already working on including regional languages since English is not the first language for a lot of people.

How has the response been till now?

We’re about two months old and are seeing around 50 to 60 signups on a daily basis, which is good since we haven’t done any marketing. We are focusing more on engaging with the users and giving them more tools to engage with each other. We also learn and improvise from the feedback. For example, our questions to the users for making their profiles were very boxed, there were no open text areas. When people said that they needed more space to express themselves, we made that change.

Mumbai is the new hotspot of Sugar babies

According to the sources, some people are also going towards the sugar dating. the term means receiving gifts, cards and money in exchange of a relationship. in this race, the metro city and the capital of the country, Delhi and Mumbai are ahead than the rest of the world.

Most of the people are opting for it more than anything else. As per the data of the sugar dating India website, there are 6,246 sugar babies and 21,464 sugar dadies alone in the Mumbai. and in Delhi, there are 3,447 sugar babies and 13,127 sugar dadied available. Hyderabad is also the part of the race with 1218 sugar babies and 11,784 sugar daddies.

The concept is also famous in other cities such as Chennai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Surat, Kolkata, Jaipur and Banglore.

This app will match the users of same interest of music. It will match on the basis of the user’s taste of music and the answers of the Music questionnaire.

Phoneix based Rachel Van is a music Lover who creates this app for the users. She says “I started going to concerts as soon as my parents would let me out of the house,” she says, “and up until COVID-19 I would go to one concert a week.”

She created it when she saw people struggling with other dating apps.  “Music spans across ages, demographics and gender,” she says, “and it’s a universally connecting part of our world.”

“For something that is so important to us, whether it be that music is everything in your life or you just really like this one band and you want to be able to share that with someone,” van Nortwick explains, “there isn’t an app out there that connects people based on music compatibility, so I saw the opportunity and created Vinylly” She said.
