Coffee Meets Bagel
Coffee Meets Bagel was created by sisters Dawoon, Soo and Ahreum Kang as a meaningful dating app for people tired of swiping. This dating app tries to get people off the app and onto real-life dates by imposing an 8-day limit on message exchanges.
Who is Coffee Meets Bagel For?
On this site, women generally outnumber men, by a ratio of about 60% to 40% and around 36% of these users are 18 to 29, with just over 55% in the 30-49 range.
CMB is designed for people who want to prioritize quality over quantity, especially women.
On the site, women are sent 6 highly-compatible, pre-screened Bagels who match their search criteria, and who have already “liked” their profile. Men are also not left out, as they receive a limited number of suggested Bagels daily, up to 21.
Both men and women are given the option to spend “Beans” (the in-app currency) to procure more matches from the Discover selection.
The Coffee Meets Bagel app is free to download for iOS or Android. Intending users, can also create a profile, receive your daily suggested Bagels at noon, and exchange messages without paying.
However, there’s a subscription that unlocks additional features, and costs $35 for 1 month, $75 for 3 months or $120 for 6 months.
Hinge is an app, marketed towards people who are looking for serious relationships. It is an app that is designed to be deleted. The app’s founder is Justin McLeod, in his words said the Hinge prompts, enables people to “put themselves out there a bit more”, which in his opinion is essential if you are looking for someone you can genuinely relate to and connect with.
Who is Hinge For?
Hinge is geared at millennials, with roughly 49% of users between the ages of 18 and 29, and most of the rest between 30 and 40.
Since you have to fully complete your Hinge profile, upload all 6 photos and complete 3 prompt answers, before you can communicate with other users, the requirement helps screen out people who are merely looking for hookups.
Hinge uses machine learning to present potential matches depending on your interactions with the app, which eliminates the part where you just mindlessly swipe through singles in your area.
Hinge “Most Compatible” feature analyzes your preferences over time, and the types of ‘likes’ you both send and receive.
Daily match suggestions are curated depending both on AI and the Gale-Shapely algorithm, commonly known as the “stable marriage algorithm”.
AlsoHinge follows up on several exchanges made within the app in a feature known as “We Met”. A notification will be sent to you asking if you and your match met up in the real world, and if so, how the date went. Don’t worry, the feedback is not shared with your match, it’s designed to offer more data about your specific preferences to the matching algorithm.
Those who are using Hinge for free, can comment on or “like” a photo or prompt answer in up to 10 profiles a day. They can also use the basic match filters, which include age, range, distance, height, ethnicity, and religion.
Hinge’s premium membership option is known as “Hinge Preferred”, and the cost ranges from $4.99/mo for 6 months to $9.99 for a single month.
Instead of having to scroll through endless dating sites who have nothing to offer, why not put in time and money on these dating apps, to change your status with ease?.
