Mix and match dating
Because who doesn't enjoy sending a thoughtful message to someone who might never see it?
However, Ok Cupid has pointed out that these changes did help lower the number of offensive messages users received, which might be a worthwhile trade-off.
However the rate of overly confident males tends to be higher than I've seen on other apps.
Bumble also has a BFF feature, but that's really not the focus of a dating app gallery, so I'll save it for another time.
After signing up, Happn showed me 68 users it said I had crossed paths with in the preceding three hours, though I hadn't left my apartment all day.
This might be helpful if you're looking to date your immediate neighbors (or Uber drivers), but I don't see the attraction when competitors like Tinder already show the distance between you and other users.
You can still send a message -- it just won't show up in the recipient's inbox unless you match.
The downside is that short profiles make it harder to figure out what people are looking for.
Knowing very little about a person can also make initial messaging more challenging.
At the end of the day, I have friends who've had good matches on CMB, but it isn't my favorite app.
Happn matches you with people who are located nearby.It's a cool concept and helpful for people who want to meet someone in a more organic manner.
