That said, I've never met a single person who actually uses the app.
After signing up, Happn showed me 68 people it said I had crossed paths with in the preceding three hours, though I hadn't left my apartment all day.
They suggest ice-breakers for first messages, and the profiles are more in-depth than Tinder.
For people who like a little extra hand-holding, CMB isn't the worst option.
Also because women must message first, Bumble tends to weed out the slightly more insecure males.
However the rate of overly confident males tends to be higher than I've seen on other apps.
However, Ok Cupid has pointed out that these changes did help lower the number of offensive messages people received, which might be a worthwhile trade-off.
At the end of the day, I have friends who've had the perfect match on CMB, but it isn't my favorite app.
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.
Changes in the last few years have made Ok Cupid a bit more like Tinder (both owned by the same company) focusing more on swiping and eliminating the ability to message a user without matching with them first.
This might be helpful if you're looking to date your immediate neighbors (or Uber drivers), but I don't see the attraction when competitors like Tinder already show the distance between you and other users.
Frankly, if I saw an attractive guy in a coffee shop, I'd just approach him rather than check to see if he's on Happn.
