BlockedUnblock FollowFollowing The only ways out of the labyrinth of life are when we express ourselves through song or writing. Which dating app trumps them all? Dating apps are popular all around the world, and Singaporeans are definitely not excluded from the hype.
We get it — and we know that people use dating apps for different reasons: Tinder Tinder is popular on the global scale — in fact, it is arguably the app that first ignited the hype for online dating. Basically, Tinder shows you a deck of profiles for you to swipe left like or right pass to indicate your interest. Then you can start chatting for an unlimited period of time.
Tinder users also get to connect to their own Instagram accounts and display their top artists from Spotify in their profiles. Recently, the app also came up with the concept of swiping in groups, like a virtual group matchmaking. However, having the sky as the limit may not necessarily be such a great thing after all. The chances of getting a casual hook up or fling are pretty high here. And you will have 24 hours to indicate your interest.
Then you can start chatting before the chat expires in seven days. Unlike Tinder, which shows you random profiles of people for you to choose from, Coffee Meets Bagel is one of those apps that use an algorithm to find you a suitable match. So the bagels you get are curated for you based on your preferences and personality type. Additionally, the time frame of seven days effectively puts pressure on users to take their conversation somewhere else and progress beyond the app.
This is not for the passive wallflowers! The best thing about the app, however, is that ALL the basic information is laid out for you from the start.
While there are too many profiles on Tinder, some feel that CMB has too few profiles to go around. Some days, you might also not be fond of any of your bagels for the day and you might eventually give up on the app if this persists for days. Most CMB users are seriously looking for something substantial and not just some casual fling.
