Coffee Meets Bagel is a dating app that offers its users potential matches based on their Facebook profiles. When two users mutually “like” each other, a chat room opens up for them to exchange messages. However, this message window is only open for 8 days. If you don't want the conversation to expire, you can spend a few Beans to keep it open for another 30 days.
After being in the app for a while, you may be offered a 7-day free trial. If you don't cancel it right away, you'll be charged the normal rate. Every day at noon, men receive 21 bagels that they can like or pass on. At the same time, women are shown the men who liked them and can choose to complete the match or pass.
The chat tabs are only open for seven days, so it's within that time that you need to start a meaningful conversation and hopefully inspire the other bagel to give out their contact information so that your chat can continue somewhere else or just meet up for a date. The basic features of the app are free, but it costs extra Beans (the app's currency) to get more profiles visible to you each day so you can send them messages. If you're over 50, sites like Silver Singles or similar sites might offer a better experience, but Coffee Meets Bagel offers a free trial. The app also has an underlying recurring approach to using bean, bagel, and coffee lingo which some may find odd.
If you don't intend to use Coffee Meets Bagel in the future, you can delete your account and any subscription you have subscribed to. The app will close for seven days after you download it, but you can always reopen it for 99 Beans if needed. Coffee Meets Bagel is great for those who prioritize something meaningful in their lives, but keep in mind that traction isn't as high as other alternative apps and Discover vs Suggested, bean coins and limited information about profiles can be too much to endure. In a survey conducted among Coffee Meets Bagel users around the world, men stated that the traits they most seek are physical attraction, common interest, and intellect, in that order.
