Online Dating WITHOUT the swiping?

By Nora Toufaili

The patience you must need being single and dreaming of one day meeting the right one. Are you currently in that phase? When it comes to the love life, relationships, and having a partner to share the rest of our life with, I think we can all agree it is something every single human on this planet is thinking; about and even most likely actively pursuing. Of course us boss babes, are confident and absolute in every way possible, and should feel love towards ourselves before giving love to others. However, why not open up the doorway to our hearts and allow someone else in?

Nowadays, online dating apps have become so common, it has developed and expanded to different regions specializing in whatever zone or background you come from or prefer. Some dating apps are created to find people in the same country, city and even religious background. Some want a long term relationship, others would just like to have fun. Either way, it has become so easy to meet new people with the choice of narrowing down your preferences and with the intention of seeking a relationship.

“Skip the small talk and spark meaningful conversation with personalized Icebreakers.”

Now this might have you say a goodbye to the old school love. You know that moment when you bump in a café and lock eyes or meeting a mutual friend and falling in love with each other without even realizing – but I guess it doesn’t happen that way for everybody and that’s OK! Everyone has their own story and they are all beautiful and magical in their own way.

Recently, I have discovered something that really intrigued me, not only the company itself and how it works, but also that a lovely lady who a real Boss Babe, founded this company with a goal and intention in mind. Through her dedication and hard work, she was able to create something extraordinary!

Let me introduce you to Coffee Meets Bagel.

Coffee Meets Bagel is an online dating service/app that’s a little different than most dating apps. It is a start-up founded by Arum Kang in 2012 with the assistance of her 2 sisters.

The sense behind Coffee and Bagel is to basically “skip the small talk” and create connections. There is no swiping involved.

This app’s main focus is to connect people through algorithms, surveying each individual about their personal preferences and personalities. This creates meaningful connections giving everybody a chance to fall in love.

How does it work?

It’s as simple as creating a new account. When starting, you need to consider yourself a coffee (YUM!) and the person you are seeking to start a conversation is a bagel (I mean tell me that’s not the cutest thing you have ever heard; come on.)

After completing the survey, everyday at noon, the app matches you with people they think are a perfect match! Each match it’s curated specifically for you. Through all the options available, you can scroll through their profile and either start a conversation or just simply skip out.

The profiles involve a lot of deeper characteristics than usual, like, things you love, hobbies, ambitions and why you prefer these things. You will need to fill out a prompt basically talking about yourself or what you would like, your background in work, education, travels. Having this type of profile allows you to stick out and catch someone’s attention.

“I’m a digital marketer, fitness enthusiast, and a sucker for romantic comedies. After work, you can find me at new restaurants and visiting dog beaches with my boxer King. Love to travel internationally and always game for live music.
Love live music too? Message me!”

Coffee Meets Bagel not only works as a dating platform but also has a blog section on their website/app. Endless articles around the topic of dating, relationships, marriage, safety in the dating world and new and upcoming apps that help you when you begin to first meet someone and everything else related.

If you are one of those people currently seeking a real, true and deep connection with someone, and wanting to find that one single person to spend the rest of your life with, then why not give it a try? Maybe you feel unsafe? Are you a bit apprehensive? Or just still hanging on to the that romanticised idea in the movies of meeting someone face to face?

On the Coffee Meets Bagel app, the percentage of genuine people using this platform is a lot higher since it is a lot more advanced than most platforms. According the the rates of the Coffee Meets Bagel app is somewhat unbelievable. For ease of use and support it is rated an high 7.5 out of 10, and the rates of ‘Quality Matches’ is a near perfect 9 out of 10.

Trying something and getting out of you comfort zone can lead you into discovering a whole other world and a whole other side of yourself you maybe didn’t see before.

Saying hello to one person might change everything.

You have no means of preparing for the love of your life. Sometimes, a person walks into our lives and completely changes everything. If you have fallen in love and its a surprise for you, then you are in the best phase of your life.
