You then use beans to unlock special features in the app and to “like” other user profiles.
The service gives male users 21 curated matches every day that they can either like or pass on.
The one downside to any service with free messaging is that you could feel overwhelmed if you find yourself with a flooded inbox.
Our findings are in line with 2016 Consumer Reports data that found users were most satisfied with Ok Cupid over numerous other dating services.With free dating apps becoming more popular thanks to Tinder, people are gravitating toward predominately free online dating services.Julie Spira, a Los Angeles-based author, online dating expert and CEO of Cyber Dating Experts, said honesty is the key to online dating success.This is becoming easier and easier with social media.“These days because people are connecting their Instagram accounts to their mobile dating app we have an opportunity to see what someone looks like in real life and whether those photos match the profile,” she said.The free mobile app is also well designed and easy to use.
Setting up your profile involves a rather in-depth chemistry assessment of more than 70 questions.
In our tests, the maximum number of profiles we could like before running out of beans was five a day, which we would think keeps most people from being flippant about their matches.
In our tests, our accounts got an average of three matches, which was rather low compared to other services we tried.
Of those, 22 percent were "top prospects," which is the site's way of saying those users are highly compatible with you.
Coffee Meets Bagel limits the number of profiles you can view at one time, forcing you to consider the profiles you do see more carefully.
Along with up to six photos, you can also add more information to your profile about your lifestyle. On top of that, about half of them were an 80 percent match or higher, meaning they are much more likely to be a compatible match.
