A meaningful approach to dating
CMB is a dating app aimed at those who are tired of constant swiping and interactions that lack meaning. Men receive a limited number of matches to like or pass. Women then receive a number of matches from the likes and other potential matches.
This program provides a creative and alternative approach to dating that puts the focus on in-person interactions.
CMB, or Coffee Meets Bagel, has tailored several features of the app to stand out from competitors Tinder and Bumble. By limiting the number of matches and setting a time limit on the messaging window, the app actively steps away from continuous swiping and moves towards making matches, and setting up dates. You can easily create an account, answer questions about yourself, and link it to your Facebook to get started.
The quality over quantity approach is also seen in the dating profile, which allows for plenty of detail and includes insightful questions. The information displayed in profiles focuses more on education and interests. Due to the fact that matches are limited and messaging only lasts for 8 days, the app doesn’t take up a lot of your time, which is good since the actual purpose is dating!
There are some negative aspects to this approach, though. Limited matches can make the whole process longer, as finding someone suitable could take weeks instead of days. The algorithm is predominantly based on your Facebook information, so it’ll try to match you with friends of friends. Otherwise, it doesn’t take many attributes into account.
Where can you run this program?
The app requires Android 5.0 and above.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes. For lots of matches and dating options, try Bumble.
Coffee Meets Bagel is designed for those who don’t have much time in a day but are happy to wait a bit longer for the right match to come up. You aren’t bombarded with matches and messages, which will be a refreshing change for anyone who has used other dating apps. Overall, it’s a quality alternative to the most famous options.
