We totally get it. You’re tired of wasting time endlessly swiping, browsing, and messaging - only to never hear back. You only want to spend time on relevant, high quality matches.

Every day at noon, you‘ll receive potential matches (we call them “Bagels”) preselected for you so you don’t have to swipe all day. Our algorithm takes into consideration both basic criteria like age, height, religion, ethnicity, and more nuanced factors like your social network and interests.

Fellas, you will receive highly curated matches preselected for you by our algorithm. For the ladies, you will only be sent Bagels that have already expressed interest and are serious about connecting with you! Why? Because we know your time is extra-precious. :)

Once there is a match, we’ll connect you via a private chat room and provide icebreaker questions to get your conversation started. We even follow up to encourage actual dates.

For our LGBTQ members: Every day at noon, both men and women will receive potential matches preselected just for you.

Become a CMB Premium subscriber and get access to exclusive features that will help you save time, eliminate ghosting, and lead to more dates! With the Premium subscription, you will get insights into all of your Bagels’ chat activity levels (i.e. How likely are they to send the first message?), see when your messages to your Bagels are read, and receive more than $50 worth of in-app items that will help you get connected even faster. Current price for the CMB Premium subscription varies based on the length of your auto-renewing subscriptions and may vary from country to country. For 1-month renewals, price is $34.99 USD per pay period, for 3-month renewals, price is $74.99 USD per pay period, for 6-month renewals, price is $119.99 USD per pay period, and for annual renewals, price is $179.99 USD per pay period. Payment will be charged to your iTunes account, and your account will be charged for renewal up to 7 days before the end of the current period. Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your settings in the iTunes Store after purchase. To see full Privacy and Terms visit

Editors’ Notes

This year, find romance and meet someone special.

Well-thought out, relaxed vibe


I def like that this app isn't all up in my business. You can only message if you mutually like each other, yet it doesn't limit your success with annoying features such as judgy rankings (*ahem* The League) and quasi-gender friendly rules (*ahem* Bumble). The consideration CMB puts into how different genders actually approach online dating seems well thought out: men get more daily matches to choose from, women get a smaller but more selective group of men who have already shown interested. Unfortunately I can't speak to how or whether this works for same-sex matches.

Granted, I also haven't been on here long and I did find the beans/bagel/woo lingo more confusing than clever. Same with the daily matches vs. discovers+likes vs. discovers+w/o likes. But the interface is easy to use and I find that the profiles offer an ideal amount of information - assuming people bother to fill them out ;) Also, the phot lab feature is pretty awesome. I've always wondered which of my pics people I know!

Most importantly, the vibe I'm getting from the users on here is laid back, friendly, and genuine. Definitely not something I can say about most other apps, at least not in NYC. Apparently if you want to take your CMB game to the next level, you can purchase a monthly membership thingy or something like that, but I'm happy with the basic (and free) format for now.

The bagels are a gambling system


I already noticed that this app will calculate who gets liked more often and put them in the bagel section instead of the daily free rotation. I'm fine with that, it's business. But after buying extra bagels multiple times on top of my subscription I thought how am I going to know if these people will ever see me? Especially when there's naturally more men on dating apps then women, there's more clutter for them to go through. A bagel costs something like $4-$5, a little less with the discount, so it's a gamble to send someone a bagel not knowing AT ALL if they'll even see you. After a month of this I still have zero matches, I feel CMB delays when people see you as long as they see you stop paying for awhile. That's how I met someone on here last year, after a couple months of not paying attention to the notifications I matched with someone I must've like weeks or months ago. I'm just hoping people who paid up at least for awhile can actually get on the higher end of the algorithm, someday.

Response: I understand the app can be used for free, but it's absolutely clear the more attractive choices are on the discover section in which you have to buy bagels to send to people than the daily free rotation of people. I spent money on bagels on multiple occasions never knowing the person I liked will ever see me. I'll also go days without liking a single person on the free rotations. 380 beans for a bagel to send to one person is ridiculous.

Developer Response

The basic version of CMB is totally free! Your curated Suggested Bagels are free to Like, Pass, and Connect with. We'll offer additional Bagels that you can Like for "Beans" or extra features that you can unlock with our in-app currency, but Beans are not required to use the basic features of the app :)
