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.
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.
The free app is also easy to use, and our tests resulted in the most matches of any site we tested.
You answer on a scale, which is nice because it means your answers can be more nuanced than yes or no.
There are several other questionnaires available to continue to flesh out your profile, but they're not required.
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.
