How was our experience on Bumble? Well, I am amazed at how much it has to offer more than just dating. Here is a break-up of how we felt at each step:
Sign up Process
You can use your Facebook profile to sign up on this CoffeeMeetsBagel service. Your name, age, and photos will be transferred automatically. You can use the phone number to verify your profile instead of your Facebook profile. There are few short questions for your profile that will be helpful to find bagels. They include “I am….”, “I like….”, and “I appreciate when my date…..”
There are a few prompts on this CoffeeMeetsBagel platform that can help you find compatible matches. It is better to answer the profile questions because if the girl is thinking between pass or like, those questions can be decisive.
Profile creation is quite easy. You don't need to answer everything. But if you fail to answer all the questions, it is unlikely that you would receive any matches. The app gives you a series of questions about you, what you like, and what you would like your date to do. Also, the CoffeeMeetsBagel website provides some prompts which serve in finding better matches. Each answer has a limit of 276 characters. Use them wisely. Ditch the articles and use short phrases. Talk about your position at work, your passions, hobbies.
Searching and Matchmaking
Well, as you already know, the app is focused on better dating. Therefore, they have a concept of coffee, getting an option of various bagels. The women go through the profiles that fit their requirements and put a like on some of them. Later the guys get all the bagels’ requests, and they choose the ones they like.
There is an option of “Suggested Bagels” and “Discover Bagels”. In “Suggested bagels”, you get to either choose “Pass”, “Like,” or “Priority Like” over the requests that you get. You can search bagels based on height, age, distance, ethnicity, and religion in the later section.
Contacting Other Members
How will I contact other people? Easy! Once the Coffee and the Bagel like each other, you get to text for free for 7 days. Also, the Coffee should remember that the Bagel is available for only 24 hours. So, there are certain limitations while contacting. Premium CoffeeMeetsBagel members have the dating opportunity to contact 8 bagels while others get to talk to one at a time.
Those CoffeeMeetsBagel chat rooms are exquisitely sophisticated. The app offers amazing ice-breakers in the conversation. For example Marta said, “she was a ballet dancer during high school”, ask her more about that.
