My two sisters and I started Coffee Meets Bagel with one simple goal - to create the best dating app for women. Five years later, CMB has been used by millions of singles worldwide and has been voted the best dating app for women and singles looking for relationships by many notable publications.

So….what now? Well, the truth is, online dating still “sucks” for most singles. Most singles report feeling frustrated and exhausted by their dating app experience.

What if dating apps left us feeling connected and inspired instead? That is an exciting future worth building. We thought hard about how we could create authentic connections online. We were inspired by Brene Brown’s research on connections and vulnerability. She shares that, “Without having the courage to let ourselves be seen -- deeply seen, vulnerability seen,” we can’t have connections. The launch of Video is our first attempt to encourage our members to share more of themselves in a safe, fun, and spontaneous way.
