Dating international pro woman
It turned into the joke of the trip with our family and friends. It was silly, but now it’s a special memory of that time in our lives.
Anyway, we were sailing around the coast with wedding location scouting on the brain—but we didn’t fall in love with anything until we arrived at Positano.
“It was just the two of us, in the most special place to us in the world, no one around for miles. We cried and laughed the whole way down the hill.”A few days after they got engaged, Whitney and Michael took off on a trip to Italy.
It was a vacation that had been a long time in the making, but Whitney never imagined they’d be celebrating their engagement.
(The company has since expanded its reach with the launch of Bumble BFF in March of 2016 and Bumble Bizz earlier this week.)As fate would have it, for the entrepreneur and her now husband, Michael Herd (who’s a restaurateur as well as in the oil-and-gas business) sparks first flew IRL as opposed to virtually, but their love story still started with Whitney unabashedly taking the lead.
It was just before Christmas in 2013, and the two were on vacation in Aspen with their respective families when a mutual friend introduced them one afternoon.
Her dating app is 20-million-users strong and well known for its feminist approach to the online courting process—when two heterosexual users are matched, a connection can only be made if the woman makes the first move.“He told me two things that morning: 1) He wasn’t sure marriage was in the near future as we were both so young and busy with our careers, and 2) We were going to his family’s ranch that weekend.” Michael’s usual truck was in the shop, so they needed to take a much older one, which meant no air-conditioning for a four-hour drive in the Texas heat.They made two fast-food stops on the trek: “Lots of greasy french fries made for super-cute proposal skin! “I also hadn’t put on a stitch of makeup and could not have been more casual if I tried after that haul.”When they arrived at the ranch, Michael insisted they go on a trail ride despite the fact that Whitney was a novice horseback rider.“He said he was going to take a quick shower, but insisted I didn’t need to.As a result, he looked amazing and fresh in a white button-down and jeans. Well, he tossed me an XL men’s fishing shirt and told me to button it to the top for bugs, and that super-casual look I had going on was taken to a whole new level!
