A call must be initiated by the women first and only after a mutual match happens. There are many reasons, and each one is a reason why you should be using Bumble to find your next match made in Heaven. Before, you can't sign up if you don't have a Facebook account and predictably, a lot of potential users complained about this. Whitney Wolfe also co-founded Tinder.
