Comment on online dating
Hinge focuses on common connections that you and a potential partner share on Facebook.
Which is great if you trust the judgment of your friends and family.
Coffee Meets Bagel hopes to offer users better-quality matches by sending curated matches, or "bagels," each day at noon.
They suggest ice-breakers for first messages, and the profiles are more in-depth than Tinder.
At the end of the day, I have friends who've had good matches on CMB, but it isn't my favorite app.
Happn matches you with people who are located nearby.
You'll need to wade through a sea of profiles, which makes it easy to pass over people you might have given a chance under different circumstances. I have friends who've met spouses through Ok Cupid. In fact, I've been on Ok Cupid, on and off, for roughly the last 11 years.
Knowing very little about a person can also make initial messaging more challenging.After signing up, Happn showed me 68 users it said I had crossed paths with in the preceding three hours, though I hadn't left my apartment all day.
