Maybe I was a little optimistic, but I figured I would get at least a couple replies, maybe a few nice conversations, and if I met someone for drinks? A few days later, armed with a slew of awkward selfies and broken dreams, I came to the realization that, while these apps work as advertised, maybe I’m the problem.

I think I need to reevaluate some of my life decisions.

Anyway, here’s the list, hopefully your luck will be better than mine. I was used to the endless stream of faces provided by Tinder, so I want to start somewhere that emphasizes quality over quantity.

Coffee Meets Bagel provides you with only one curated match, or bagel, every day at noon.

You can view that matches photos, interests, a few personal details, and any mutual friends before deciding whether to like them or not.

If you both like each other, you’ll receive a text from a disposable cell number where you can text each other for up to a week without sharing your real phone number.

If it doesn’t work out, that’s okay, there will be another bagel tomorrow, and hopefully the day after that too, until you’re so sick of looking at bagels who don’t want to hang out with you that you swear off breakfast for a week.

I am one app in, and no messages, but that’s alright.

There are still plenty of options and potential matches.
