wifi is the deal breaker fosho!
Who’s not excited for this weekend’s opening of “Hunger Games”?
Yet I fear for people, because I see certain people using these pickup lines in honor of “Hunger Games”..Here are some that I can’t help but love.
“Did a tracker jacker sting me? Because I must be hallucinating.”
“I’m sorry, I had to come over and get a better look at you — you really resemble a girl I once bludgeoned to death with a twig.”
CMB Texting 101/in Date Tips /by CMB
Hello CMB members and FUTURE CMB members ;)
We text all the time- no biggie. However, when it comes to that first text you send to the Bagel you’re interested in, it becomes a different story where you pause and have to think for a bit.
You don’t want to come off as the boring one or be creepy and ask for drinks at 10:00pm. So how can you be friendly, approachable, and make a good first impression with your text? Here are some good and bad examples our team collected.
Hey. (Really? ..That’s a great conversation starter…really..)
Whaddup. (We’re grownups here. Let’s talk like one.)
Meet up for a drink? (This is fine after some actual talking, but this is comes off too abrupt. )
Notre Dame! I was just in Indiana for work. How did you survive through the cold? ( Found a relevant topic to talk about- AWESOME!)
Your profile pic was so cute that I had to say hello. Can’t believe it’s almost spring again? Lets chat soon. (compliments the bagel in a sweet way and tries to get to know the person first)
Hello. I love to play golf as well even though it’s hard to do so in the city. Where are you from originally? (When you share the same hobby or interest it becomes a great conversation starter, and a potential date activity)
Hi I thought it would be great to meet up for coffee since we are both in Finance, but let’s talk about something else :) (Friendly and suggests that this meet up doesn’t have to entirely romantic. CMB can be a way to network as well.)
As you can see, mentioning your Bagel’s hobby and interest can be a easy way to start a conversation and you can have more fun with it. This is why it is so important to fill out your own profile and be descriptive of what you like to do and to tell the person a little more about yourself. Even your pictures. Don’t just put one picture, but maybe 2 or 3…or even 4 pictures of your face and yourself doing some interesting activity. These are all good conversation starters and gives a better sense of who you are to the other person. Wouldn’t you want to see such information on your Bagel’s profile rather than one picture and no other information?
There are many other ways to say ,”Hello” to your bagel. Hopefully these examples were helpful and inspired you to send a text that makes your bagel want to talk to you more.
Good luck fellow CMB members!
What Men Think: Professing His Love Sex, Love & Life: glamour.com/in Date Tips /by CMB
So much thought and drama around those 3 simple words, “I”, “Love” and “You”.
What men think when it comes to saying I Love you.
Shall we redefine “confident men”
should we text or talk on the phone?/in CMB Says, From the founders /by CMB
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 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 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 don’t know how I feel about this one ;)
You know he’s into you when he deletes his online dating profile.
