Remember Whitney Wolfe, the ousted Tinder executive whose sexual harassment lawsuit made the company look like a living hell for female employees? She’s back with a new app designed to make online dating less creepy for women. It looks a lot like Tinder.

Last week, Wolfe launched Bumble, which, like Tinder and many similar apps, shows men and women a series of potential suitors in their geographic area. Users flick faces left or right to indicate whether they want to save or dismiss profiles.
