You can load up to nine photos and have a much more prolific profile, too, and if you’ve entered any ice breakers into your profile, the app will send one of them to a bagel you’ve connected with as the first message for greater convenience.
The fact that the chat room expires after a week puts some pressure on you to exchange phone numbers or meet up in real life, or to just quietly fade away without any fuss.
That chat room expires after eight days, regardless of whether you’ve talked with your bagel or not.
You can also earn “beans” that allow for extra app functions, either by purchasing them outright, recommending the app to your friends, or logging in on consecutive days.

You create a username and fill out a very long profile, which you can link to your Instagram account if you choose (which is, admittedly, almost Facebook).
Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images (we suggest always including a photo).
Props to Coffee Meets Bagel for having the cutest name of all the dating apps.
The service also offers more specific preference options, meaning you can narrow your choices to certain religious beliefs or ethnicities, if those things are important to you.
All options, including those for accessing the settings and viewing profiles, are located in a slide-out menu.
To browse for someone you like, you merely tap the “matches” option, which, oddly, does not show you the people you’ve matched with but rather the people you could potentially match with.
