And the clock is ticking – she’s only got 24 hours to “like” you.
You really need to bring your profile writing A-game to this dating app.
See it all as experience, not as proof that you’re a loser (or that everyone else is a loser).
Learn from your bad and boring dates and try again.
You do this by being original and, above all, specific about your interests.
Instead of saying that you like sunsets, mention the best sunset you’ve ever seen.
You’re two grown-ups, not a sugardaddy and his gold-digger.
Chivalry means being attentive, thoughtful and fair, not paying for all the food.
Coffee Meets Bagel feeds users just one match per day, so she’ll definitely peruse your profile.
Having sex doesn’t make you morally corrupt, and it won’t necessarily wreck your chances of a relationship.
If you’re both adults, single and you use protection, it’s your choice – but if you’d rather not, that’s your choice too. Ignore those rules about waiting three days to get in touch.
A picture-less ad says: “I am so ugly I didn’t want to risk a photo,” “I am married,” or “I am on the run from Broadmoor.” Everyone who likes your main photo will want to see more. Whether you’re a man or a woman, a photo with your shirt off makes you look desperate and/or only interested in sex. This is a cruel fact of life for online dating beginners, especially men. Likewise, you won’t “keep them keen” by making them wait days for a reply. Don’t allow an email conversation to drag on for weeks without a date.
Not because they can’t get enough of you, but because a single photo is not a reliable indicator of what you look like. Use photos and emails for spotting potential, but don’t start fancying the pants off a two-dimensional image. More men than women advertise on most dating sites, so the girls get the pick of the bunch. Read the profiles that get most views, and pick up tips from them. You may think you’re “connecting”, but you can’t judge chemistry unless you meet up.
She doesn’t want to read a boring list of adjectives.
