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.
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.
Hinge finally won me over, becoming my favorite dating app in 2019.
At the end of the day, I have friends who've had the perfect match on CMB, but it isn't my favorite app.Knowing very little about a person can also make initial messaging a lot more challenging.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.Hinge's current slogan is simply "Designed to be deleted," and if a serious relationship is what you're looking for, this is the dating app I would recommend.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.For people who like a little extra hand-holding, CMB isn't the worst option.On the upside, the profiles are brief, which helps you to make decisions quickly.The downside is that short profiles make it harder to figure out what a lot of people are looking for.You can still send a message -- it just won't show up in the recipient's inbox unless you match.Because who doesn't enjoy sending a thoughtful message to someone who might never see it?
