Are you looking to connect with people through dating, making new friends, or networking? Today we are joined by former Chief Brand Officer of Bumble, Alex Williamson, to discuss what makes Bumble different from other social and dating apps. As a company, they value kindness and respect, and empower women to make the first move.


Alex describes how Bumble ensures that their users have a positive experience and feel safe. For example, they are taking steps to criminalize the sending of lewd pictures. She gives tips for creating a profile, like avoiding group pictures, and the importance of showcasing who you are to avoid heartache. We love and appreciate how Alex really dives into the issues with online dating, outdated gender norms, and how you can find true connection (friendships and relationships!) through the use of Bumble.


We also talk about:

  • Feeling empowered in relationships

  • Advice to avoid abuse from dating apps

  • Respectful & compassionate dating

  • Bumble BFF & Bizz

  • Favorite stories from couples who have met on bumble

  • Establishing a strong brand voice
