This app is pretty cool .. 5/5
By Black Hammer 🤘🏾
Good app, meet so many different people. I’m happy you don’t have to pay for anything, best app ever! Good job guys.
Don’t believe this app 1/5
For the ladies, trust me trust me I NEVER waste my time and right reviews but I have to this time. This site is full of men from Africa putting up fake photos trying to scam women. I’ve encountered twice and each time did a reverse image lookup under Google. Please please Check the photos. If the man seems aggressive and sending you unnecessary photos of himself, he’s trying to make you believe he’s real. The images he send the more you can scan to get results back on Google. I’m going to report this app.
May take time 4/5
By may take more time than bumble
I’ve been using this app for about a month. It’s slower than bumble. No one has asked me out. Not sure if it’s worth my time. But it seems like less of a hookup app.
Poor if you live on Long Island Sound 1/5
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! Like watching the grass grow
Enough with the video 2/5
Please stop flogging your video function via notifications—it's unbelievably irritating. If I elect to provide a video, I'll do so.
Facebook Authentication doesn’t work. 1/5

A Couple Requests... 4/5
By Angry at Paper
Rather than a full review, I wanted to leave a bit of feedback about the areas of the app most noticeably frustrating at this point in time.
- For starters, the new video feature has no way to filter, and is showing me people from the opposite side of the country. I’ve basically decided to ignore it because no one on there is even remotely close (or falls within dating preferences).
- Secondly — and this is admittedly a very specific problem — but it would be nice to be able to filter matches by country. I live close enough to Canada that I often have 1/4 - 1/2 of my matches from there. However, crossing the border isn’t exactly a motivating factor when it comes to choosing a match.
- Finally, it would be nice if the free Discover matches you get for not having a bagel found didn’t disappear after a day. I understand why it happens, but it would be nice to at least be able to bank a couple of them if you’ve had several days in a row of no matches.
Same as all dating apps. 1/5
By Allen Hyungsik Ahn
Slightly disappointed in this app as I feel like I would not make any progress without paying for the premium membership.
I have heard many people getting 15-20 bagels a day, while I am getting one bagel a day.
Also don't get me started about the beans... I do not get enough beans at all yo even try for one match at discover.
Maybe this app isn't for me at this rate that it is going...
Was on board, but Facebook login is a negative 2/5
I'm not ready to join a world totally obsessed with social media, so when I downloaded this app and discovered I wouldn't be able to proceed without a Facebook account attached, I was disappointed. Other apps can handle it easily with alternatives like google+ or email verification, so why is this any different. Sad
Where's my bagel 1/5
App doesn't work haven't found any matches
Great things come to those who wait! 5/5
My best friend told me about CMB a while ago. He meet his now girlfriend of almost two years on it. So I figured why not. CMB is probably the smartest and safest application you can use. You get to meet some great people even if you don’t hold a connection. So give this a try and be patient. I was, and now I have my own coffee partner in crime too. 😊
Terrible, needs so much improvement 1/5
This app needs so much improvement. The should talk to me and I will tell them how.
Number one if you chatting to 20 people on the app how do you have time within week to get to the point of deciding to give someone your number??? People need to be careful about who they give the phone number to. But this app forces you to give your number to people before even meeting them, because of the stupid time limit. With other apps you can chat and meet them first and then decide whether you want to give your phone number. But a week is not enough time to do that with 20 people!
So many other issues too. Their tech-support doesn’t even know their product! They gave me info that completely went against what the app said.
You should be able to put on hold being matched with new bagels without losing out on the possibility of matching with them in the future.

Actually solves the problem of loneliness.
Cost too much!! 2/5
By Trance Machine
Nothing is free!!
Great dating app... Patience Required! 4/5
This isn't an app if you're looking to swipe left or right on hundreds of guys/girls a day. You will have to wait days or even weeks until you will get a match but it is all worth it!! My only concern is that girls only get 5 "bagels" per day and since I'm sure every girl gets more than 5 likes from guys a day so my profile can be stuck behind everyone that has money for "Woo's"!!!
Hate new video feature and how participation affects visibility! 1/5
I used to love this app. It was the only app with quality guys. Now they make you jump through hoops. I used to get 6 guys a day for matches depending on how many guys liked me and now I’m getting one because I choose not to participate in these stupid videos. My visibility is affected by not participating. I’m not going to pimp myself out by answering a question on a video. To me that’s reserved for musicians and actors, which I am and I do this but not for dating purposes - I refuse. Now on “discover” they don’t even allow you to see information about a person, only their picture. I can’t even see their age! I have a rule no matter how hot a guy is if he has no words on his profile he’s a “no.” And I’m not about to pay in beans for THAT info. How am I supposed to find a meaningful anything on here? Videos create fans and I’m not looking for fans. This app has lost its luster and I’ve been on this app since the day it was first started. Now I have to find a new favorite app.
Fake Profiles Galore 1/5
Beware of the fake profiles. I think I have talked to one real person in 3 months of being on. Plus CMB never responds to anything I inquire about. There are some good things but the fact that there are so many fake profiles does not offset the features.
Solid Concept 4/5
I was supposed to get daily beans for loading up the app. Never did. So those who pay can cut in front of those who don’t. Or you can like whoever you want by paying. I’m not gonna spend money for an app that hasn’t proven itself to be fruitful. It’s disappointing because I really liked how CMB handled their matching.
I received my daily login beans. Customer support was responsive and personable.
I appreciate it 4/5
I like this app, LOVE that it keeps people from messaging you who you haven’t liked. My only complaint isn’t really the app’s fault: since it’s newer than some of the big names, I don’t think many people in my relatively-rural area are on it because I’ve gone days without matches. 🤷🏻♀️ So, fell your friends! 😉
Bad and getting worse ... 1/5
By Major Hawk
This app was already plagued by a tainted search methodology and the fact that your preferences won't save (in spite of customer service protests to the contrary) but the "video" posts has completely pushed it into the useless category.
Don't waste your time or money.
Best of the 1000 dating site so far 5/5
I'm not the biggest fan of dating sites as some just have me sitting thinking I'm a judgmental person (CMB doesn't get a pass on this part), but CMB has actually had quality women with exceptional backgrounds pop up on my feed. That isn't number one but I've been highly impressed with looks and background. Then, somehow they have been providing me the diversity that is missing from other sites based on my background. One of the last main improvements is the video feature which is HILARIOUS and it also adds to the interaction. Genius move.. I do wish more of the attractive people posted on it though. Definitely gives you a chance to see the real person up front.
Kudos to you CMB
Not good enough 2/5
I’ve been looking forward to new bagels every 12am, unfortunately the application disappointing ever since. The notifications never make a sound with it which makes users miss the conversation easily and now all the photos in the discover session gone...
Not crazy about the new update 2/5
By Allie bubble bee
The new update with the videos shows videos from both sexes not your preference also it won’t allow you to discover new people unless you invite friends.
Hate the video notification 3/5
I live in Florida and girls uploading videos live all over the place except near my location. At least show me candidate near me. It's stupid!
Tinder but more geared for dating. 3/5
TLDR: Quick and simple app like tinder with a more dating oriented premise you can visit a couple times a day. Has great features called photo lab to help you choose your best pictures but lacks profile customization, cannot message unless mutual like, and has a lot of premium features that are missing from the free version. Check it out but lack of profile descriptions means more based on physical chemistry rather than shared interests. 3 out of 5 “good but not great”
The app works kinda like tinder, you browse a set number of potential singles and you read a bit about them, check out their pics and then like or pass. If you get a like back, you can message each other.
The ability to customize your profile is pretty bare bones, you can only write a few sentences about yourself in only 3 categories so you can’t really say much about yourself. This makes it feel like I can’t get across who I am and what type of person I’m looking for. This goes for other profiles too, they’re short with few things to go on so it’s really up to how good their profile pics are. I kind of understand why they did this, I think it’s because people need to have some base level of chemistry and if they have similar interests as well it will result in a better match. I don’t feel the same way but I understand. This is supposed to be a dating app though however it feels more like a hookup app.
The app does have photo lab which is a nice feature where you can choose two photos and people vote on them to see which photo is better allowing you to get feedback on your photos. And this segues to my next point.
The app is free so they need to make money somehow. The app will charge you for premium features. This includes the usual stuff like more swipes in a single day, get noticed faster, stuff like that. Photo lab is a premium feature as well that uses currency called beans and these beans are used to buy the results of your photo poll as well as all other premium features. I haven’t paid for anything. I wouldn’t suggest paying for beans unless you’re serious about dating and if you are I think there are better apps you can pay for.
Now for my experience. Used the app for a few weeks now. Full disclosure, I’m a guy and I’ve only had a couple of matches but they haven’t worked out. Either we weren’t compatible or they haven’t messaged back. Personally I prefer longer profiles because I don’t like to judge on looks alone. I also think that it’s more geared for looks. It feels like tinder basically. If you’re a guy then you’re in the same situation you’d be in on tinder. You’ll right swipe everything and get like a 10% response rate, probably less. I personally have better luck on OKC or Zoosk. I wouldn’t recommend it over other apps or sites though but it’s good for the photo lab and a secondary app. I give this app a 3/5. It has some cool premium features but it’s not as personal as other dating sites. Would do better as a hookup app.
My score is based on the features of the app and not based on the results of my matches and I would give the same score even if I met my soulmate.
Used to be a good app 1/5
I don’t like the new video responses that they are pushing
Rampant Catfish Problems 1/5
Every "hot" profile is an obvious catfish and CMB doesn't care at all. This has been a major problem for a looooooong time with CMB. A year ago it was so bad I quit the app out of frustration. I recently came back and I'm about ready to give up again. Veracity or other image search apps easily catch these profiles. Reporting to CMB takes real time and effort since there is no way to directly report a profile from Discover, yet CMB's responses are blasé and indifferent. Obviously, since nothing has changed; no way to directly report profiles and the catfish are as rampant as ever. So is CMB actually creating all the fake "hot" profiles? I don't know, but I wouldn't trust a single profile on CMB.
Edit: After reporting a catfish profile on Saturday and being told by CMB on Monday that the person had been banned, that person popped up in the Chat section on Tuesday. This clearly is not an issue CMB cares about, but flat-out lies? Unbelievable.
... seems more about making money 2/5
By Vanessa Wetzel
It this app was actually more about “finding a deeper connection” based on who you actually are interested in, wouldn’t it make sense to allow you to look at all five daily recommendations at ONCE (if you only can pick one?) I mean, that and I feel the number of means for “taking” seems like the most arbitrary number, and it’s “a lot” of beans, given you only gain gain a few beans a day through whatever various activities
I’m not looking to “like” loads of people err - the concept of choosing carefully is valuable and also means people are also choosing carefully, but would be nice to be able to choose more than a couple...
I was tapping around still trying to figure app out and in the process went through beans fairly quickly. And passing costs beans too? Honestly it makes no sense. 🙄 beyond “buy more means so you can do more” aka just spend money
Yeah, the app totally should try and make money but 🤔
Has a few issues 2/5
I was only on this app for three weeks and I found it hard to believe that out of the million people on this planet, I would get the same 7 guys on my “discover” every single day. I would appreciate it if there was more to offer than just 7 guys that come onto my discover every single day. It’s supposed to change at noon every day and it hasn’t. Other than that, the bean system was weird. You can’t really do much unless you have beans. I also had freezing issues if I were to go open another app and come back on CMB only for it to freeze in a white screen. :/ I don’t think I’ll be coming back to this app. It was worth a shot.
Never got one date. Poor matches.
This application has its pluses. It does not overload me with too many matches in one day to sift through. I like that. I do have to say that I get a lot of Asian matches. It’s not that I’m against Asians, but that’s mostly what I’m getting these days. I do have to say in my first three days there was a fake profile guy writing to me. I’ve been doing online dating for years, and I know something fake when I see it. This guy looked good, and then wrote to me with no punctuation whatsoever, told me he bought a new house. He said the right things, but with horrible punctuation. His pictures did not really look alike upon further investigation. It is very sad when a company feels they have to do this to keep customers. Beware!
Where’s preferences for video?? 3/5
I’ve used coffee meets bagel on and off like I’m sure many users, overall I think it’s perfectly fine App. However, this new video feature does not respect your age preferences whatsoever. As a 30-year-old male I don’t want to be seeing someone 19 years old and then someone 62 in more or less one scroll! It creeps me out! This should be such an easy fix, if they are making up for lack of video content, then just allow the feed to end.
Users on here are fake 1/5
Two users on here that I have chatted with are pretending to be someone they are not- they both have indicated that they live in the US but they clearly are not by the sentences they form and the time of day they write to me. Shame on you CMB for not verifying your users!
Greedy and few results 2/5
Frequently nobody in my area (and I live in a major city).
This last bit with videos... you keep spamming notifications daily about them. I think after the first five daily posts we got the idea. You just make it look like we got a match to see your ads.
Terrible. Deleted the app. You got too greedy and played on people’s hope. Too bad, too.
I DON’T WANT TO MAKE A VIDEO 3/5
STOP ASKING ME
I would rather go on Match for that much money not
Great but additional info needed 4/5
Great app! User friendly and functions are great.
Though, I would suggest to add additional medical professional degrees on the info (e.g. Podiatric Medicine, DPM; Pharmacy, PharmD, etc)
Only dating app that works 1/5
By Not happy user 12345
Removing the history is a bad idea. Adding the video is even worse. My video feed is flooded with bagels whom I’m not attracted to. It’s terrifying.
More realistic 4/5
I enjoy how I can see other singles with videos before we even match. Seeing more videos of singles in my city would make me rate it a 5 star!
Great unique site 5/5
Loving this app! You can watch peoples videos! Such a great concept! Rather than wasting time texting and talking on the phone I get a taste of someone's personality via video!
Great app, but chats function is slow 1/5
This app is very convenient, the only bad thing is that, chats load very slow; and when you type and send, it's also very slow to clear what you sent in the typing windows. And hope the chat history could have search function.
By the way, the new video function is grossly, since a lot of ugly peoples posted on it. Can I choose to remove that tab on my app?
Inactive as he!! 1/5
Pretty sure there must be a lot of fake profiles on here.
Just another dating cash grab 1/5
Don’t waste your time. Nothing on this app is free eventually you will have to spend lots of money to even view/like someone.
You eventually get matched, right? 1/5
I’ve been on multiple apps and this was by far the weakest concept. Most other apps just give you a pool, and you can select as much as you want until you run out. Here you are only given a handful of options unless you pay through the roof to get access to more. You can purchase the chance to unlock more using “beans”. If you use all your free “beans” to pay for an additional connection, it will literally take you 60 days to earn enough “beans” back to unlock just one additional match. Each match cost over 300 beans, and you only get 5 beans a day for looking through your bagels. Again unless you pay. As for the matches, I was averaging about 1 like out of every 4 options. Pretty common on most my apps. I’m pretty successful getting matches on other sites within days, however after almost 2 months and well over 100 likes selected I never received one connection. I have no idea what the algorithm for CMB is, but that seems extremely broken to me based on other app experience. I would never recommend this app to anyone.
CMB Review 5/5
Simple and easy to use! User interface is friendly and the setup is great. By limiting the amount of time you can talk with matches you’re forced to cut a lot of the fluff. Great app!
App used to be great 1/5
CMB was a great app and then they decided to add the video sharing feature which is extremely annoying!
This app recently started video messages which I think is a great feature
I signed for this app because of the good reviews. Not sure if people get beans (points that allows you to chat with people) to write good reviews. On the first day I had to pay $24.99 to like profiles. Well I thought that's ok this should last me a few days but no. It was enough for that one day. Today is my second day and it's kinda frustrating you get only a few matches at a time and if they don't fit your criteria then you have to wait another 24 hours for more. The app seems like a scam to me
I deleted the app, I got contacted by a bot so it got deleted..... 😡🤬
I’m all for the chill aspect of this app. I do however think it’s pretty ridiculous that I have to pay for beans to do anything unless I wanna wait around each day for their suggestions. I know it’s supposed to be so you’re not “swiping all day”, but what if I want to? It’s not the worst thing in the world. The bean/bagel lingo is also more confusing than witty. I rated 4 stars because it’d get my review up there, but really, just stick to Bumble or Tinder. This app is too confusing
