The interview has been edited for length and clarity.You have one of the most unique data sets about modern romance. Well, one of the first things you have to know to understand how dating — or really courtship rituals, since not everyone calls it dating — has changed over time is that the age of marriage in the United States has increased dramatically over time.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.
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.And when a man feels rejected, often times he may respond in aggression.When you impose a restriction, and you say one party or the other must speak first, it does something very fascinating.
