We've brewed a few updates to make dating better for the CMB Community.
The app has great intentions. I believe everyone who's on the app if serious should do a better job to communicate interest if any is there. The pictures at time load slowly. Hate the profiles that say absolutely nothing. A friend suggested the app and will use again if needed. I did make contact with someone on the app if things work out we might decide to meet and take things further.
So far no I haven't had any game breaking bugs. 21 suggestions a day isn't too bad as well, though more would obviously be nice. All in all a solid app so far. It is a little weird how you can't add any prompts after the initial registration, though you can edit your answer or delete the prompt. You can't edit the caption of a photo after you post it either.
1 star because it seems to show fewer interesting people as time goes on, and has become quite a chore to check my bagels when it doesn't show me anyone interesting. Most profiles are blank, but when there is text in their profile, I wait what seems like forever for the pictures to load. I deleted this after using it for years, took a break for a while (pandemic), and it's somehow worse. I'm not a bagel person, and that apparently applies to this app as well. Bad jokes for bad apps!
Stuff fails to load frequently (photos, chat history). Notifications don't stack but overwrite older ones. Given the daily marketing spam, makes it easy to miss messages. The AI has some weird ideas. And it is very spammy and high action velocity - hundreds of profiles a week and starts a timer to get a number or pay to extend the chat once you match. Design seems to encourage burning potential matches, made worse by front-loading the best candidates.
The quality of matches on here are excellent. Within a month I had met someone who got me to cancel my subscription, and the women I met before her were of very high quality (almost exclusively beautiful researchers and doctors, all of whom I met had nuanced and sophisticated views on the world). The app's software is really sloppy, though. Logins fail, a number of missing QoL features, messages and images sometimes don't load, and a few poor UI designs.
