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.
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.
If they do, the matched pair can then chat for free.A Facebook account is required because, according to the website, matches are more successful when two people have mutual friends.The app accesses your list of friends to do this but won’t post anything to your page, so there’s no need to worry. You can earn beans by logging in often, by purchasing them or by completing certain tasks like using the app’s Photo Lab.It’s also marketed as a ladies choice app, which means women must initiate contact with a match first.Setting up your profile is fast and only requires a few quick facts about yourself and your appearance.After you write six phrases about yourself and three phrases about what you like in a date, you can start using Coffee Meets Bagel.There is no desktop version of this dating service, though, so you have to have a smartphone, Facebook account and cell phone number to use it.Setting up your profile is fun because of the unique questions you’re asked, like what your ideal date would entail and whether you’d prefer to be weird or normal.You also answer these questions from the perspective of your ideal mate to ensure you are paired with compatible people.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.
