Shall we redefine “confident men”
We don’t recommend going to a bar at 11:00pm for the first date, but maybe a day date out to Brooklyn can be forgiven!
Check out One Stop Beer Shop in Brooklyn to shop and to have some beer. They have more than 100 different beers and also have cocktails. The cocktail featured in the video above looks perfect for a spring day, especially since the weather in NYC is amazing these days.
If you’re a Manhattanite, even trekking down to Brooklyn can be a special date out with your Bagel. Do the whole package- walk the Brooklyn Bridge, chill out at One Stop Beer Shop and bring some back home! Best part of this place is the growlers. You can either get it for pick up or order for delivery but you can bring your favorite beer home in glass jugs, which keeps them carbonated for at least a month.
Done, I’m sold. If I can bring my Dogfish 60 home after a great date out in Brooklyn, I’ll do it.

A good number of my friends are on board and are loving Coffee Meets Bagel- not because I’ve brain washed them with it but because they appreciate the quality of the members and the simplicity of the system.
Many of my friends have been matched and went on dates with their bagels. I was surprised to see the different personalities come out in this process. Once a bagel and coffee gets matched, they have a private line they can communicate through. This way they can text without giving each other’s real phone number.
There are 2 different ways different bagels approach this situation.
The first, which I thought would be the case for most matches, is that the two text for a couple of days to get to know each other. If the two “click” they will exchange their real numbers and plan a date to actually meet up for coffee.
However I’ve noticed that many bagels are much more aggressive, proactive and forward. After the first text, he goes straight to, “This is my phone number*** *** ****, what’s yours?” I’ve seen another bagel ask for the real number and asked if they could talk over the phone that evening. He skipped the whole texting process and jumped right into the phone call stage. Sexy and Confident? I don’t know, but definitely bold.
For my friend’s case she was turned off by such forwardness but I think it take’s great confidence. Also, it shows that the bagel did not want to beat around the bushes and knew what he wanted.
It’s hard to figure when it’s the right time to exchange each other’s real number, TALK on the phone and to meet up for a date, when you two have met through such social platform. But hey, have fun with it, don’t take it too seriously, but not too lightly.
If you two “click” hopefully you don’t have to think about it too much and can just go with the flow.
I love the fact that after typing in some initial info, you sit back and have people brought to you. It takes the work out of it, which to me, would be the whole point of internet dating/meeting. I have played with a couple of online sites, but the time you need to invest…you could be out there in realtime having fun.” -Bagel J
I am not a fan of online dating in general (tried match and eharmony both) and was glad that the concept was at least a bit more different w/ CMB. One match a day is simple and helpful.”- Coffee R
I dig the unique spin on the dating site that CMB provides. We’re all about innovation over here and I think your site definitely is forward thinking.” Bagel J
I love the idea of your site/app.” – Bagel J
I like the individualized touch to the program. i think its better than okcupid and other mass dating sites because you dont feel like you’re one of 10000 other options waiting to be picked off the shelf.” Coffee L
I really love the concept an can see it being a great success. Congratulations, I certainly recommend it.” Bagel R
