More than 20 million people live as singles in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Millions of them today use dating platforms, particularly apps. “That we kicked off a revolution – we certainly didn’t expect that. Everything we do is aimed at directly linking people to each other. Today, no one has to be in a certain place in order to get acquainted,” says Whitney Wolfe, about the most successful international dating app, Tinder. Wolfe is now the CEO of the dating app Bumble. The intuitive selection of a photo on a smartphone and access to others with similar interests (the famous “match”) is a popular matchmaking principle today.
