Coffee Meets Bagel is another dating app that targets users looking for long term relationships. It is not your typical hookup app like Tinder or Bumble where most users are just looking for a one night stand or a quick fling.
Another difference between Coffee Meets Bagel and apps like Tinder is that you don’t have to swipe and search for your match; the app will select your matches for you based on various parameters you specified in your profile. Most of the matches will be based on your social circle and that is why Facebook is required to open an account with Coffee Meets Bagel. If you are serious about getting a boyfriend or girlfriend, you can also try Eharmony or Match. View pics for free now on Match.com, the #1 dating site!
Another feature of Coffee Meets Bagel app is the ability to use Discover option which will allow you to search for someone who might not be in your social circle (you will not have mutual friends with them). If you discover someone interesting you can either like them or suggest them to your friends. After you click like, your profile will be forwarded to that user and he or she will be able to see it within few days unless they already matched with someone else. One problem with many online dating apps is inactive profiles of people who either met someone or just stopped using the website. Coffee Meets Bagel regularly checks how active are the users and only matches you with active users.
What to do if you are not getting replies from your matches?
As on any dating website, not every person will reply back to your messages. There are several steps that you can take to increase your chances of getting replies and landing dates. First of all, ensure your messages are unique and interesting. Most of the time you will not get replies to messages like “How are you?” or “What is up”. If on another hand you send something like “Hey 🙂 Checked out your profile and definitely thought we had a lot in common! I’m looking for some summer fun too….first date idea: walk on the boardwalk and get some ice cream?” you will more likely to receive a reply. It is also important to ensure you have a great bio and pictures. If you have a decent profile and you are still not getting a reply it is possible that the another person is just not interested in you. In this case, you should just move on instead of wasting time on someone who will not like you back.
Coffee Meets Bagel is a relatively new app and depending on how many people use it your city, you might not receive match every day. If this is the case you can either wait or switch another dating app. In most cases, Match.com is the great alternative if you are looking for serious long term relationship.
