Whitney began dating Justin Mateen, one of the co-founders.
The relationship ended after a year, Whitney has said, and she claims that Justin subsequently became verbally abusive, allegedly calling her a ‘slut’ and a ‘whore’.
Romance rarely blossoms between strangers in bars these days.
For anyone under 40 who is dating, single and in possession of a smartphone, potential partners are generally now located in the palm of one’s hand.
When Whitney was 11, her father took a sabbatical and moved the family to Paris.
‘I was enrolled in a very international school, with the children of diplomats and royalty. ‘It changed my perspective.’When Whitney returned to school in small-town Utah, she suddenly stood out.
After graduation, she moved to Los Angeles and got a job at a start-up ‘incubator’, an organisation designed to help new businesses succeed.
Behaviour like this on Bumble leads to users being banned. ‘We count anything that offends a user as abusive and we strongly encourage women to report it straight to us.‘The men who use Bumble appreciate a confident woman, a woman who has a voice,’ she continues.‘I can guarantee that back in the day, if a woman was left alone and she needed to eat, she would have to hunt,’ says Whitney.‘It’s not biological imperative that says men have to ask us out, it’s social conditioning.Five years ago Tinder revolutionised dating; the location-based app delivered a deck of candidates based on proximity straight to a phone screen, with a small selection of snapshots and a brief bio.Then, in late 2014, another dating app launched with a potentially even more revolutionary USP.
‘Again, it’s gender conditioning.’However, while at the incubator Whitney met Sean Rad, a fellow entrepreneur who was working on an app for loyalty cards.
