You'll need to wade through a sea of profiles, which makes it easy to pass over people you might have given a chance under different circumstances. I have friends who've met spouses through Ok Cupid. In fact, I've been on Ok Cupid, on and off, for roughly the last 11 years.Profiles are a lot more in-depth than most online dating sites, and if you answer a seemingly endless series of questions (much like a personality test), they will spit out a reasonable Match/Enemy percentage ratio on profiles to help you gauge compatibility based on interests.Coffee Meets Bagel hopes to offer people better-quality matches by sending curated matches, or "bagels," each day at noon.They suggest ice-breakers for first messages, and the profiles are more in-depth than Tinder.At the end of the day, I have friends who've had the perfect match on CMB, but it isn't my favorite app.
However, I found the app confusing to use, with too many features and a lot of gimmicks.
I shouldn't have to look up online tutorials to figure out how to use a dating app. I was also disappointed in the notifications, which I found too pushy.
CMB was constantly "gently" reminding me to message people I'd matched with.
It's a cool concept and helpful for people who want to meet someone in a more organic manner.
That said, I've never met a single person who actually uses the app.
