If you've lived your whole life being told that you should always wait for the guy to come to you, that pretending to be pakipot is the surest way to land "The One," we have one question: How's that working out for you? 

While we totally respect those who prefer to go the more traditional route when it comes to dating, we feel like it's our responsibility to let you know that if you want to pursue someone, GO AHEAD. There is nothing wrong with making the first move and letting someone know that you're interested. Chances are, he might even be relieved that the pressure's been lifted.

That's why Bumble has been so successful. In case you didn't know, Bumble is a dating app that allows women to have more control. To interact on Bumble, female users have to be the ones to initiate a conversation. CEO Whitney Wolfe, who co-founded Tinder explained, "We firmly believe it's made dating a far more balanced playing field. As women, we've been taught to sit and wait for a man to come to us for fear of looking desperate. But that's a very antiquated, sexist way of thinking and we set out to change that."

She continued, "Bumble has created a safe and positive environment for women to engage with men. It's not about being an aggressor, but rather about meeting new people on your terms, and based on what you're interested in...Women are encouraged to go after everything they want in life except for a partner, and that's nothing short of ridiculous. Our mission is to encourage women to make the first move in all facets of their life, and every day we're helping to change the way people think."
