We heard you! We are bringing back “focused” Suggested!
At Coffee Meets Bagel, our mission is to deliver high quality, meaningful connections to the millions of active Bagels using our app. To help us achieve this, we experimented with a different format of the the Suggested page. We collected a ton of great feedback from you and we are bringing back the original “focused” Suggested format!
Why are we switching back?
Suggested is where we present you the most compatible Bagels – the ones who will most likely match with you! We learned that you love the quality over quantity experience of Suggested, which enables you to focus on one Bagel at a time. The latest Suggested feed detracted from that focused experience!
This change will take effect for the Android Community only when you download the latest version of Coffee Meets Bagel from the Google Play Store. (Note that iOS users will not experience any changes.) With the original style of Suggested, Bagels will be presented one at a time and you can view your next Bagel by Liking or Passing on the current Bagel. Note that Bagels will disappear once you’ve Liked or Pass them.
How to use Suggested:
- You will receive the most compatible Bagels (those who are most likely to match with you) in Suggested. Every day at noon, your Suggested Bagels will refresh.
- You will be able to go through these Bagels one at a time. If you want to see the next Bagel, simply “Like” or “Pass”. Bagels will disappear once you’ve taken an action.
- To Unmatch or Report Bagels, click on the three dots located on the top right corner of the Bagel’s photos.
- If you have a lot of eligible Bagels in your area, you can “unlock” additional matches using your Beans once you’ve gone through all your daily suggested Bagels.
How can we Help?
We pride ourselves on being a source of strength for our Community and your feedback directly influences the future of Coffee Meets Bagel in the online dating space. Please send us your comments and suggestions for our latest update at [email protected].
At Coffee Meets Bagel, we’ve heard our dating app explained in a lot of….different…ways. We’ve heard that it’s an app to find nearby cafes! An app to meet dates for coffee. A Jewish dating app. A great place to snag a bagel on the way to work!
But it’s none of these things; it’s the meaningful dating app for people sick of swiping. And because Coffee Meets Bagel doesn’t rely on a swiping model, things work a little bit differently around here.
How Does Coffee Meets Bagel Work? The Gist
Every day around noon, our smart algorithm picks a limited number of your very best potential matches. (We like to call these matches bagels because…well because it’s kind of fun!) Once you and your bagel have liked each other, you can start a chat by using our personalized icebreakers. Sense a spark? We encourage you to put down the app and go on a real date!
If you’re craving more doughy details on how Coffee Meets Bagel works, check out the more-comprehensive guide that follows.
Creating a CMB Account
After downloading Coffee Meets Bagel for iOS or Android, you’ll be prompted to log in or to create a new account. You can do so by linking your pre-existing Facebook account, (which can help save you time by pulling your photos and key information,) or you can create an account using our secure phone-login method.
Be sure to log in via the same method each time, or you could accidentally create two separate accounts.
Primping Your Profile
After you’ve created an account, you’ll be prompted to start the on-boarding process. Here, you can set your bagel preferences, upload photos, and create a narrative profile.
Choosing Your Photos
We suggest uploading at least three photos, but more is always better! Follow CMB best profile practices by selecting photos that show off the true you. Share a genuine smile, a selfie of you and your pet, or a photo of you loving your hobbies.
Filling Out Your Profile
After you’ve chosen your photos, you can start filling out your profile with our prompts:
“I like…,” and
“I appreciate when my date… .”
You might be eager to skimp on profile details to start connecting right away, but completing it carefully is really important for making meaningful connections.
Try your best to be descriptive and specific! Instead of saying, “I like animals,” say, “I’m kind of obsessed with my dog, Waldo. He goes with me on long hikes, and I’d love a partner to join us on one ??!”
Creating Your Icebreakers
You’ll also be asked to provide three fun facts about yourself. These won’t appear on your profile, but they could be used later as icebreakers to jumpstart chats with bagels. These can make or break a compelling conversation, so give special attention to your three facts!
Once you’ve completed the CMB on-boarding process, the true magic begins. Our smart algorithm will start working behind-the-scenes to find your very best potential matches.
Getting Matches: The “Suggested” Section
Every day around noon, we’ll deliver your bagels to the main section of CMB: Suggested. After looking through your bagel’s profile and pictures, you can like or politely pass on them. If you like your bagel, and your bagel has already liked you, it’s a match! You can start chatting right away.
If you’re not feeling a bagel and you pass on them, you’ll be shown our next pick if we have one. The number of suggested bagels you’ll see per day will vary depending on your set preferences, location, gender, and more.
Sending a Message With a Like
If the bagel you see in your suggested has not liked you first (you can tell by the banner at the bottom of the photo) you’ll also have the option of sending a Message With a Like to stand out. Try sending your bagel compliment or asking them a question about their profile! If you connect, the message will show up in your Chats.
Checking Your Bagels
Miss your batch of bagels for the day? There’s still a chance you might see one of them in a future batch. But, just in case, try to take a few moments each day to check them. In fact, even passing on bagels you don’t like now can help our algorithm get to know you and your type better. If you want to be reminded to check your bagels, make sure your push notifications are set to “on.” We’ll send you a fun push once your new batch is ready.
Seeing More Bagels: The “Discover” Section
If you want to see additional bagels nearby, check out Discover. We like to think of Discover as “the schmear on top.” Here, you can use Advanced Filters, like location, activity, and education, to browse more bagels beyond the ones we curate for you daily.
Like these bagels by using beans, the in-app currency, or by becoming a subscriber. (More on beans & subscriptions, later!)
Icebreakers & Chats
Once you and a bagel have both liked one another, you can start chatting up your matches right away. You might see one of your matches personal icebreakers, or they might see one of yours. Try asking a question about the icebreaker, or comment about something on their profile that you have in common to really hit it off.
This chat will expire after 7 days because we know the most meaningful connections happen face-to-face. So, be sure to ask them to exchange contact information within a week of matching.
Remember when we said “more on beans later?” Well, it’s later! Beans are CMB’s in-app currency. They give you access to specialized features such as Takes, aka Likes in Discover, and Read Receipts, which let you know when your messages have been read
When you sign up for CMB, we’ll give you beans as a thank you just for signing up! You can purchase beans from the Bean Shop; usually the more you buy at once, the bigger the discount. You can also earn free beans by following the prompts in the Bean Shop to invite friends and follow CMB on social media.
If you love the special features that beans give you access to, subscribing to CMB Premium is a no-brainer. Subscriptions include access to Likes You, where you can see everyone who likes you at once; Activity Reports, to access more info on bagels and their habits; Read Receipts, so you can cut the guesswork out of chats; and more! We’re always working on beefing up our subscription package, so who knows! You might be surprised with even better bundled features in the near future.
Let’s Do This
CMB has already made more than 50,000,000 matches and thousands of lasting relationships globally. We want you to meet someone who sparks your heart, too. Ready to test it out?
To start connecting, download meaningful dating app Coffee Meets Bagel to text yourself a link. Or, download CMB directly from your phone: iOS | Android

Where can I find Mystery Gift?
You will see a gift box icon on the top right corner on your Today’s Bagel page. Click on it and you can unwrap one of the five gifts upon clicking the button at the bottom. When you’d like to exit out this page, click on the back button to return back to your Today’s Bagel page.
