Build meaningful relationships

Coffee Meets Bagel (CMB) is a highly curated dating service where women call the final shot on who gets to talk to them among guys who have expressed interest. We believe the best dating experience is offered through a differentiated service for men and women. Globally, we have generated more than one million dates and thousands of lasting relationships. We started Coffee Meets Bagel in 2012 because we wanted to inspire singles to feel good about dating again. Over the last 4 years, we came to realize that men and women (straight or gay) have very different styles of dating and that the best dating experience for everyone is offered through a differentiated service for men and women. Hence the new way of servicing #LadiesChoice was born. With this newest model, men will receive more highly curated Bagels picked by our optimized algorithm, and women will receive only matches who have expressed interest! Ladies, you get the final say!
