Trying to be fair here 2/5
By Logical Populist 117
There are a lot of dating apps out there, and I used to think this one had promise through the simplicity of the idea- a few matches makes people take it more seriously. What gets me is it used to be better- until it took away a rematch feature. Tinder is still better- at least it has an undo button. People mess up on touch screens- there should be a grace period of a few minutes at least where you change your answer if you mess up, especially when this app only throws you A SINGLE POSSIBLE MATCH A DAY. If the developers want to be taken seriously they should at least make it seem like they care about the user instead of trying to get them to buy beans all the time. Sorry CMB- but with options like match, tinder, and bumble, you're going to bean yourself into irrelevance.
Poor if you live on Long Island Sound 3/5
If you put 50 miles down for the distance you are willing to travel it will send you all these matches that are 3 hours away! Very SLOW meeting anyone on this app!
More personal than other dating apps 5/5
If you're looking for a real relationship I suggest CmB over other apps. CmB helps spark initial conversations, which is something other dating apps struggle with. It also limits how many matches you get per day which is a nice way to make sure you don't get sucked in. I also found someone within 5 days that I'm now long term with from here so I'm slightly biased :3
So far so good. 5/5
I am usually almost instantly annoyed with dating apps. But so far, so good.
Monetization is far too aggressive 2/5
Although a fairly well designed and robust dating app, the monetization efforts and algorithm based-matching system are way too aggressive. In my experience, the matches I wanted were the ones I was required to pay for. And the "token" system in this app is extremely expensive, even compared to competing apps. I'm sure it works well for many, but it's just too expensive.
Not good in Colo anyway 1/5
I like the idea behind this app, but there are some flaws. First, I get ONE bagel a day, not 6. We are given seven days to chat, and then the chat room closes. Perfect for scammers. They can wait to start talking for a few days, then the app provides an apparently legitimate reason to get your contact info. It is possible to flag potential scammers, but regular guys have short profiles so it's hard to tell for awhile. Forcing people to wait so long to match with someone seems to be weeding out all the real people. Although, others seem to have 'liked' me, I don't get responses when I write them. Based on my experience, I'd assume they 'liked' me several days ago, and got bored of the app before we were allowed to chat.
Good system. Tries at lasting relationships 4/5
By Worst app everrrrr
It's a good system. The minimal people offers makes it so you can't just swipe left and right on dozens and dozens of people. You have to take your time and actually access how you feel about people's profiles.
I believe it has real people read through your Facebook profile and stuff though, so I'm a bit weirded out by that.
Buggy app that is badly coded + a cash grab 1/5
The design is pretty good but the implementation is bad. The app has locked in on certain things every once in a while. Even when I completely close the app and quit I'll launch it and it will still be stuck on a "Liked/pass" person.
Also the app gives you like... 4-5 swipes on people before you lose all your "beans" and the only way to get more is to login every day or buy more for a ridiculous price.
No complaints here 5/5
By Rating it already
I would recommend CMB than any other dating apps because :
•it's free and doesn't forces u to buy their stuff
•not a hook up site (unless u want it to)
•simple and easy to use app
•variety of good matches
Works well 5/5
Seems to have a good pool of people and the app is well-designed.
Like tinder except you pay for the chance to swipe right 1/5
Garbage app, garbage producers
Facebook? Seriously?! 1/5
I was going to use the app for the first time, but it asked for my Facebook. I'm a grown woman, I'm real, but I choose not to use social media, if it means I can't use your app, so be it, your loss!
Patience Needed But That's Ok :) 4/5
I like this app, but I can admit it can take a long time to meet someone. That's no fault of the developers, it just takes some patience. I met my current boyfriend on here, and we have been going strong for a year so far. I recommend this app above many of the others, but it can take time. I have had some glitches with the app, which is why I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5. Customer service is really good as well.
The best of the dating apps 5/5
Dating apps. I've tried em all. This is the best by far.
Great balance between hardcore profile building of Okc and casual swiping of Tinder/Bumble. Matches tend to feel more meaningful.
Give this app a solid shot! You won't regret it.
Pretty good 4/5
Little low based on location but once in extended the range, I'm at least getting more bagels
New to it, but liking it so far 5/5
Easy to use and navigate. Still exploring.
CMB FTW 5/5
People on this app are looking for a relationship, not a hook up. I like the "ice breaker" concept and the bio's actually contain a decent amount of information when they're filled out right. I met my boyfriend through this app and couldn't be happier.
A nice app 5/5
Online dating just got upgraded 👍
Really wanted to like it but now I'm annoyed 2/5
Someone mentioned above that this app is passive-aggressive and I would have to agree.
They sent me messages like "You won't get the best bagels if you don't respond." BUT the thing is, why on earth would I respond to someone when I do not like the way the person writes to me or I get a negative feeling about them? Seriously? You have to be careful and selective in online dating, at least for safety's sake.
Also, they absolutely penalize me now by only sending one bagel per day. (At the beginning there were the 5 per day that they promised.)
Anyway, it's all a little shady, and again, I really wanted to like them.
CMB review 4/5
It's a great app! I love it, it don't bug the phone unlike some other apps though
Comfortable and fun 5/5
Currently dating someone I met on this app! I feel that this app is not as high-pressure as other dating apps--I don't get bombarded by messages by people I don't want to hear from. Also, the population that seems to be using CMB is intelligent, open minded, seeking a real interaction.
The currency "beans" are a bit annoying, but it makes it an investment to like someone, which means I only talk to people who are interested in me and vice versa. Not as degrading as Tinder or OkC.
Cool app 5/5
Been getting matches yay
Give it time 5/5
The company's algorithms take a little time to get warmed up but the results are great once they do.
So clunky and passive aggressive 1/5
Whoever runs this app is passive aggressive AF. They write messages like "if you don't respond we won't send you the best bagels." It's very strange! Why should we be obligated to respond if we don't like the manner in which some prospective dates reach out to us?
Also the interface is horrrrible. This clunky app is out of 2002. Hinge and bumble are much more enjoyable.
A twist on the swipe left or right! 3/5
Bagels? Beans? Compared to POF or OKC, this app does seem to have more professionals. Not sure how well you can actually meet someone before spending $$.
Found someone 5/5
Coffee meets Bagel is a good app for dating. I used tinder and bumble but felt more comfortable with coffee meets bagel just because the profiles of potential matches were great and have lots of great information that you can easily learn about the person before sending them a first message. This eliminates the generic "hey or Hi there first text" which ultimately leads to a boring convo. I also felt the people who use this app are more genuine when it comes to what they want in terms of their religious views hobbies etc. In all this app eventually led me to meet someone amazing who has a great personality. Good luck
Awesome dating app 5/5
By Earl Patrick
Would recommend over other dating apps. Not for hook ups
Great app 5/5
Pretty chill app, met some nice people. You can remove people if you aren't actually into the person or such.
Waste of time 1/5
By Nana oooh
I have tired this app several times and each time a complete fail. You don't get the matches you want and when you do connect their someone from tinder. Main reason why I joined this app because I thought it would be a little different but it's not. Everyone one here is a fake account
Good app 5/5
I have gotten great matches and made wonderful connections.
Well-thought out, relaxed vibe 4/5
I def like that this app isn't all up in my business. You can only message if you mutually like each other, yet it doesn't limit your success with annoying features such as judgy rankings (*ahem* The League) and quasi-gender friendly rules (*ahem* Bumble). The consideration CMB puts into how different genders actually approach online dating seems well thought out: men get more daily matches to choose from, women get a smaller but more selective group of men who have already shown interested. Unfortunately I can't speak to how or whether this works for same-sex matches.
Granted, I also haven't been on here long and I did find the beans/bagel/woo lingo more confusing than clever. Same with the daily matches vs. discovers+likes vs. discovers+w/o likes. But the interface is easy to use and I find that the profiles offer an ideal amount of information - assuming people bother to fill them out ;) Also, the phot lab feature is pretty awesome. I've always wondered which of my pics people prefer...now I know!
Most importantly, the vibe I'm getting from the users on here is laid back, friendly, and genuine. Definitely not something I can say about most other apps, at least not in NYC. Apparently if you want to take your CMB game to the next level, you can purchase a monthly membership thingy or something like that, but I'm happy with the basic (and free) format for now.
okcupid no more. 5/5
wow, there are, like, real people on this site/app. i feel cautiously optimistic about meeting people i've connected with. no horrible unsolicited pictures, obscene recriminative messages from men called things like "PrefersFur69" who'll be swinging through town for 2 nights next week and wants to stay at yours, etc. yikes, i hope i'm real enough for CMB!
By Marrrrr V
Different, but I like it... it kind of simplifies online dating and the selection of guys is actually full of professionals, which is a nice change!
Solid App So Far 5/5
Been pleased with the user interface and organization of the site. They keep things nice and simple, which is awesome.
Worse than Ubisoft 2/5
You claim to be helping people find their match, however you charge them a ridiculous price for the premier membership which includes nothing other than 5 free likes a month and information such as how active the other person is. I feel so robbed after spending $35 to figure this out. You're whole dating app is designed to make money on micro-transactions rather than help people connect. Granted you offer a lot of features in the free profile, which lasted a whole twenty minutes, before I was being harassed to spend even more money on beans; after having already spent money on a premium account. Maybe you and Ubisoft could get together and prefect the way to micro-transaction away everyone who enjoyed your services after already being overcharged for nothing other than a few pie charts.
There's like no one lol
Discouraged by dating 4/5
This has so far been a great app although I wonder if we get new beans every 24hours as long as we check our account? I'm very hopeful this app will make a difference.
Good but for occasional outages 4/5
Every once in a while they have a major outage or have login issues. Since this is a time sensitive dating app, they should focus more on stability.
Apart from that, I think it's a good dating app
Like it 5/5
By Bossa Groove
Good app in general
Shark tank 5/5
By Supper Mommy
I didn't think that they would stand up for how they acted on shark Tank you never know when it comes to TV. But this site and idea and love of matching people together is infectious girls you've done a fantastic job. Beautiful smart women in Silicon Valley I am so proud to use your app.
I like the concept
Great, I met my boyfriend through this app. 4/5
Great App 5/5
great well designed app
Great app 5/5
By Marcus Aurelius38383
Great app that actually works 5/5
It's not bad. The concept is super cool, and I love how they give you do's and don't's to make your profile shine. I've barely started using this and already have plenty of matches. I'd advice using it. It really works.
Lots of scammers!!! 1/5
I have experienced several guys who set up fake profiles and turned out to be scammers!! One actually asked for several hundred dollars posing as a military member stationed in Afghanistan!! Ladies beware!! Reverse google search their images if it seems too good to be true!! Be safe!!
No bagels for days. 1/5
I've been a member for about a month and you guys just kind of stopped giving me bagels...it's been like four days. I'm getting a little tired of having to go through discover to make any connections. It's also really irritating that in my discover it's all people WAY past my age range. None of the connections I've made thus far have been super successful, and the mechanics are starting to really get on my last nerve, so I think I'm about done this this app.
