Bumble, the female-first dating app, has proudly announced the launch of “Bumble Bizz”, a system to connect with like-minded professionals from your surroundings.
“We thought that you have just so much time to meet freaks in your spare time using the conventional Bumble Date solution” claims Whitney Wolf Herd, the CEO of Bumble. “So we came up with this idea to stack up people’s calendars with awkward professional dates as well”.
The concept is simple: say that you have some spare time after lunch and all you long for is just to meet a weirdo. All you have to do is to swipe right some profiles that appeal your sense of masochism, and if the Anthony Perkins you selected has done the same with you, you can meet with no further ado.
“This is a fantastic idea” comments dating expert and author Sandra Millicent, author of ‘Weirdating: How to freak out freaks at freaky dates’. “It is just a brilliant move that of professionalizing the concept of sharing an embarrassed hour with a complete, smelling stranger sipping some drink in some loud bar where everybody knows perfectly that you are on a Tinder date and you feel even more embarrassed”.
