In addition, once you like or pass someone, Coffee Meets Bagel asks you to specify your reasons for doing so, making you feel judgmental and kind of like a jerk if your answer is “unattractive.” The answers are only sent to the developers, who supposedly use the information to help better curate your resulting bagels. Okay, it’s actually a lot like Tinder, but with a few key differences that make it superior.
Interface-wise, it looks like Tinder’s younger sister. This makes answering questions far easier and less time consuming, not to mention more fun.
Props to Coffee Meets Bagel for having the cutest name of all the dating apps.
The service also offers more specific preference options, meaning you can narrow your choices to certain religious beliefs or ethnicities, if those things are important to you.
You can speed things up a bit by using the “give & take” option, but it’ll cost you 385 beans to like someone who catches your eye.
