Bumble has confidentially filed for an initial public offering, according to a report from Bloomberg.

The popular dating app is seeking to go public in February, possibly around Valentines Day, and could seek a valuation of $6 billion to $8 billion, the report said, citing people familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified because the matter isn’t public.

While no final decision has been made and timing of the potential offering could change, Bumble has been working with advisers including Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and Morgan Stanley, according to the report. 

Bumble enables women to make the first move when matching with a potential date. The firm was founded by Whitney Wolfe Herd in 2014. Herd is the co-founder of the dating app Tinder.
