Bumble Vs Tinder. How is this different than Tinder?

In the context of Bumble Vs Tinder, It is definitely different than Tinder as it totally handles the power of dating and conversing over to the ladies. Here only a lady can initiate a conversation after having a match and that can make up for a date deal. If she doesn’t start the conversation the guy doesn’t really have any choice rather than waiting.
