Not enough filters 1/5
No way to search for people without kids.
Loved it 5/5
This app is great, doesn’t let any random person to message you, unless you like them too, so it has to be a mutual like. In my case, my most matches were good. There a lot of high quality people here.
I'm not impressed 2/5
I see the same people on this app. No one new. So, okay maybe that's not the developer's fault...but you know what is? Their filters. You can filter by height, distance, age, and if they've been on the app recently. But you can't filter by religious beliefs, political views, or whether they have children or not.
I got so frustrated that I asked for a refund. Oh, sorry...you have to go through Apple for a refund and you'll only receive a refund if the app doesn't perform as described. This app is a waste of time and money.
Messages not going through. 1/5
Had a few convos where messages weren’t going through. Only found out after someone followed up.
Overall app is ok 3/5
Overall the app is ok. I’ve had quite a few likes but not a lot of chats. Also most guys are not from where their profile says they are ;) so that was a big negative and red flag. I only use the free app so dont know if the subscription one is better or not. Just going to stick with the free app.
Lock my accout for no reason and don’t fix it for 2 weeks 1/5
Worst customer service ever!!!!
Lock my about for no reason!!!
Send email 2weeks ago and it’s really hard to get an email back from them.
This is nonsense.
They don’t take people seriously.
Good intentions, bad implementation 1/5
This app tried to distinguish itself from other dating apps but eventually is just like all others but much much more expensive.
I checked different dating apps to see how many matches I get in each. With CMB I first tried by sending bagels in the discover section. Those bagels are extremely expensive. Sending one(!) like is around $4. This is the equivalent of super like in Tinder. That’s on top(!) of paid subscription.
So in order not to get bankrupt I just decided to go with the paid subscription which is a joke. It gives you some insignificant benefits. They do you a favor and send you matches every day that you do not need to pay the outrageous $4 to like. The only problem those are the least wanted profiles. It’s like they pull all the least favorites profiles to show you: if you want to be cheap, that’s what you get. If you want the better quality open your wallet and pay the $4-$5 for each like.
Bottom line after a month those are the number of matches and actual conversations I had:
Ok Cupid 35
Perfect I love it 5/5
The app works fine
Not a fan 1/5
You end up spending a lot of money if you want to meet the people who like you. Also, they have my age wrong and it can’t be changed. It is difficult to figure out too.
3 stars for the concept 3/5
By M Mary
1. The daily notifications from CMB staff (super cute & creative 💖)
2. The 7-day time limit to either exchange numbers, extend your conversation or wish your matches fare well
This app is alarmingly glitchy.
1. There were numerous times when I thought I was being ghosted when in fact my messages never got sent “message not sent”.
2. Almost daily I would get banner notifications that a match had responded back but when I clicked on the banner to link me back to that conversation there was no message waiting.
I won’t lie, that creeped me out.
App is full of bugs 1/5
I can’t upload any chat. When I open chats it shows nothing there and all buttons stop work. Application constantly freezes and there is no way to use it at all
Way too expensive for what you get 1/5
Far too expensive for what you get in return. I don’t mind paying for a dating app (they have to make money somehow) but to get all the possible features of Tinder and Bumble only costs about $20-$30/month. One could easily spend hundreds of dollars on CMB per month just to be able to send likes to people. I don’t know how they developed their pricing model, but it’s way out of wack with the most popular apps (Tinder, Bumble, and Hinge).
Ugly is free and beauty cost money 1/5
This app should be called ugly women are free and pretty women cost money. I truly hope that the attractive women on this app are getting a cut of the profits and if they aren't they should probably sue. All the women in the dailys are trolls and then they say for money u might be able to talk to these good looking women. Hahaha no thanks suckers
Waste of Time 1/5
You get a few profiles to look at every day and the quality and quantity degrades sharply after the first few days. Then, unless you’re willing to drop some serious money, there’s absolutely nothing to do in this app. Even the picture ranking feature that allowed one to get a few free beans has been severely neutered and will be removed soon, as the app is so happy to tell me 10 times a day. Obviously this is a poorly-executed way for this company to generate a lot of quick money with lots of promises and no follow-through. Also there is zero support. Don’t be fooled by the canned responses to the comments here. This company provides zero support. They’ll lock you out and won’t respond to your support questions for days, and the “responses” are canned and templated. They also had a data breach a few months ago so they can’t even run their service without issues.
App is buggy 1/5
I don’t know what’s going on now but CMB used to work for me last year. Now chats won’t open. I connected with four people but received no response from any of them and I don’t know if this is due to glitches in the chat. I’ve refreshed the app and redownloaded but am still getting the same issue. I’ll see a chat notification but when I log in, nothing has changed. On one bagel I can’t open that chat period.
I can’t message anybody why ?
It wouldn’t let me log in. No where to contact to solve this issue. This is crazy 1/5
It keeps failing on me
Buggy software 1/5
Received notifications in the morning of new messages, no new messages when logging in in the afternoon. Pass bagels ask if I got their messages when I don’t reply, say no, then I’m told what they messaged. Help responds like a week later when conversation has gone cold. Don’t need the software to increase the difficulty on dating as it is. Deleted profile and moved on. Unreliable app.
Do not waste your money! 1/5
By I was optomistic
I spent way too much money and have had no results after a month. I have a very decent profile that has received a lot of attention on other sites. This one had high ratings and yet after spending over $75 during my experience I haven’t had a decent conversation with anyone. Most are phishing and lie about their location. Others are not even in this country and are attempting all forms of fraud! The site did nothing to curb these participants and there is no way to report obvious issues until you are well into the conversation. As far as meeting someone with this site? I will never trust anyone on this app or the representatives. Terrible experience and even worse customer service. Do not spend a penny to participate. It is not worth it!
Better women elsewhere 1/5
Been on this site for 8 months and only had one woman talk to me. I’m not ugly and I’m successful. It appears that all of the women on here are Asian or Indian and they all have very similar careers. Very few locals use this app. I feel like this app is for women on visas trying to find some rich American dude to marry.
I’ve had far better success using other apps such as okc or bumble. If you are a guy don’t waste your time here.
Avoid this rip off 1/5
CMB charges a subscription cost and then severely limits the profiles you can swipe for free. Meanwhile in a “discover” section they place all the most attractive people and charge you extra to “like” them. Manipulative and costly. Try Bumble, Hinge, or OkC.
Fraud and Scam!!! 1/5
Be very careful with this app, I lost access for no reason after being on for a few months. I have reach out multiple times to their support but only get spammed by the same robotic email. There is no real support! I am working with Apple to get my bagel beans refunded. No issues with Tinder and Bumble.
Many fake profiles 1/5
Way too many fake profiles that will quickly ask for money or try other scams on the user
Why is it so expensive? 1/5
I just deleted it right away cause this thing is ridiculously expensive. And I am sure there are a lot of fake profiles there cause many of these people just look to good to be single and looking for someone. I think it’s just another scam.
Can’t filter by religion and too many fake profiles 2/5
Hello, I met a nice guy on CMB and I’m thankful but there were too many profiles with the same pictures and different information. They were clearly fake and I got tired of reporting the same ones. Also, it would be nice if we could filter by religion because spiritual beliefs and practices highly influence or direct important areas of life such as raising kids, financial decisions, etc.
This app only wants your money!! 1/5
This has been the worst dating app I’ve ever used!! I wait forever just to get points to like someone and not be able to message them. Then you have to wait forever for someone else to get enough points to finally come around to your profile. You’ll be waiting a year before someone likes you back! And yes I’m handsome! Shameful!!
Mistakenly clicking like when I was scrolling....some UI fixes would be nice 4/5
I’ve clicked like on many profiles who “likes you” without screening if we’d be a match because it places the like back button too close to where you’re trying to scroll and the like back doesn’t have a double click option like the take button, which makes it kind of awkward matching to people I didn’t mean to match back in the first place. Placing it in the center rather than right edge would be a good fix
Could use more options 2/5
This app has its heart in the right place but I wish they could give you more options rather than having you stuck with the same five people at a time. I totally understand whats this app is aiming for, but more options are better. Most, if not all of the people I was stuck with, were people I had absolutely nothing in common with, and had to wait for the next rotation. Good for those that have a patience of a saint.
Not even remotely an app 1/5
Spend “beans” to be seen above other people.
Here’s the flat out truth about this atrocity of an app; you’re not getting a date or a match or anything here.
Stop giving these companies your self esteem, they will in no way, shape or form, reward you for it.
Look me up on google and, judge for yourself my attractiveness (it’s high btw).
Useless, go meet people for real this tech is dead
Expensive, poor quality and quantity of matches, scammers 1/5
By Happy Home Owner!
The app is expensive for what you get. The first couple of days when I had a free account, I was flooded with matches. I signed up and paid for several months. The match flow slowed to a trickle.
Most of the ones that came through after I signed up were scammers. No I am not sending my driver’s license pic to some person after they offer to send theirs to me out of the blue. The app banned one guy and sent me a notice. He immediately reappeared with some minor profile changes.
I have my match settings fairly broad. The app is a pure waste of time and money.
Degrades overtime 2/5
I’ve had this app for awhile, and I did meet some nice people with it. The reason I give it a low score now because apparently there may not be as many users where I live and therefore less matches. My app will go days with no recommended match and nobody in the discovery section. Plus the “Photo lab” was a good way to get free points (100 per day), however they’ve made it a lot harder to use by allowing you only to “review” maybe 2-3 photos at a time when it used to be around 10. The app was good, but I feel that its lost its value
Far too little if you have no money to spare. 1/5
This app has 2 separate things they want you to pay for, one is a subscription, the other is a currency in the app itself. I see no need or reason to have to pay extra money($2-$25 at the time of this writing, per each amount of currency) on top of having to pay a monthly fee for features that are massively downgraded after a set period if you don’t pay or are unable to afford to freely. going from 5-8 people to look at daily, to quite literally two, and then forcing people to use the inbuilt currency to continue liking people beyond that. This entire app feels like it’s been created with the intent of driving people to pay money for next to nothing compared to almost any other app. I should also point out that, like others, I’ve also not gained a single match through this app since installing it, over a span of only 2-3 months, which is also the length of time all the matches were reduced for me.
Great app :)
Too many scammers 1/5
I have been a user for about 3 years now and this app has become a disappointment. The community used to be pretty clean with real people looking for real people to have a relationship. Now, just about every guy that I’m matched with is a scammer and I have to report them.
I don’t seem to be getting notifications of chats 3/5
I think there’s a bug in the new version
Not great 2/5
I like the concept. But after a week in I’ve noticed a trend. Zoo animals appear in my daily suggestions to swipe on, and anyone even remotely attractive appear in discover where you have to spend like 400 beans for one like.
Best way to date! 5/5
It's convenient, straight-forward, and simple!
A lot of Nigerians with fake pics trying to scam everyone 1/5
By Desert Rosy
A friend send me an email to join and I figured I would to see what's out there. Well, based on the bagels, the store needs to be restocked! But lately I’ve been farting a lot of the “army guys” that are very religious and looking for a wife but in reality they’re mostly Nigerians trying to scam you by telling a sad story about how they lost their wives and now they’re “stranded” in enemy territory and if you help by sending them money, they will love you forever, if they complete their mission, of course! So BEWAR
Great idea but flawed execution 2/5
By P McQueen
It's a great app but if you get notifications for chats and then you can't find them in the app, it kinda defeats the purpose. Like "Oh hey, this person is into you but only if you can find what they said"
Trash since the last update 1/5
By CAPTAIN TWO B
Funny how after the last big update there’s never anything in the suggested, they force you to go to discover instead so you have to spend your “beans” and eventually money, there’s too many free dating apps out there for me to spend money on this one. Sorry but your little ploy didn’t work.
Don’t have any problem until the last update. Keeps getting an error message for sending the messages. After redownloading the app, it even says my previously binded phone number is invalid.
App is great... When it works. 2/5
Has been lagging last week or so and now no more profiles at all to filter through. Maybe I just have seen all the profiles there are since I've been on here a while. Guess I truly am too picky. 😔
Your system crash for couple days 1/5
Can’t search anyone, can’t reply anything, without any reason or notices, worse matching app ever.
Not happy 2/5
I spent money on beans, and I feel somewhat cheated. I received messages which I could never view. I’d see the notification for matches and messages but when open the app to view them, nothing would be there. It seems like awful amount to pay any money at all for an app that isn’t working.
Terrible service, don’t waste your time 1/5
By better apps out there
Only had one connection in 2-3 months, they didn’t respond.
Had an issue with the app not giving me beans for rating pics, they ignored my complaint and suggested I buy beans instead.
I’m now getting one possible match per day even though searching yields plenty of results, all active within 72 hours.
Don’t waste your money, there are plenty of apps and sites out there!
Account flagged twice 3/5
Missed out on days of potential matches because my account was flagged TWICE!! They didn’t think my photos were really me so customer service requested that I send a selfie of myself holding up a few fingers...what kind of nonsense is this??? Get it together CMB!
Can’t Login 1/5
For whatever reason my app wasn’t sending messages and when in redownloaded it, now I can’t login.
Worst app! Filled with scammers 1/5
I have been using this app for a while. But most of the guys who liked me and I try to start a conversation they stop talking. The only one talks are scammers who wants money or to talk about sex!! And even found guys to actually judge me for having a son and looking for relationship!
Coffee and Bagel 4/5
By Bagel Dipper
The best part about Coffee meets Bagel is when the deep bitterness of the bean juice seeps into the sweet bread of the bagel, mixing aromas and directly complementing what should be two opposite and incompatible flavors. I don’t know why, but bagel dipping just works!
Oh, you meant the app...
