"The 'feminist' headlines are great, and it's definitely brought the app some attention, but I think the main effect for women is that they're finally in the driving seat without being judged. It sounds simple, but it's very modern. It also promotes a level of understanding for the women as to how it normally is for men, like 'Oh, this is how it feels when you throw it out there and someone doesn't respond,' which generally the men have to deal with. Women feel empowered by it and the feedback we get from guys is that, finally, they're not being treated like they're a creep; they're standing out; they don't feel like a needle in a haystack anymore.”
