I was also disappointed in the notifications, which were a tad too pushy and out of touch for my taste. CMB was constantly "gently" reminding me to message users I'd matched with and I found myself disabling the app after I received a notification from it that said, "Show [Match Name] who's boss and break the ice today!" Is it just me or is it weird to imply that a potential future relationship should have a hierarchical power dynamic? At the end of the day, I have friends who've had good matches on CMB, but it isn't my favorite app.
I enjoy clean interfaces without too many hearts, swans and sparkles. This one exactly fits my needs – no unnecessary elements put there just for fun, the buttons are clearly separated, and all useful functions can be found right away. The combination of white and sky blue is pleasant to an eye and makes associations with fishing, indeed. And that is funny. The menu is convenient, and the button size is precisely so to fit the thumb or index finger size. That may seem obvious, but there are still developers over there who fail to do that right. My evaluation is 9/10.
As for how to approach potential hookup partners you've matched with, transparency and manners are important, as always. "The key to initiating a hookup over a dating app is to exercise patience," says Caleb Hacke, health and wellness expert at Maple Holistics. "Ultimately, it's more important to make sure you don't offend or put off anyone who isn't interested in a hookup than it is to get your point across as boldly and as quickly as possible."
All the main features, such as sending messages and finding matches are free in the application. But, there are also some additional functions that you can purchase. The options that you have at the moment include 1, 5, or 10 Tokens, and subscription for an upgraded version for different periods – 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months. Depending on your needs and how long you plan on using this app, you can find a suitable in-app purchase.
But at the same time, your Facebook profile might contain information you don’t want strangers to know about you right away, such as your employer or where you went to school. While almost all dating apps display only your first name coupled with your job and alma mater, that could be enough to find you elsewhere on the internet. There’s no need for a first date to have examined your full LinkedIn résumé before they even shake your hand. Consider omitting this info from your dating profile: In the best case scenario, you might have to endure pickup lines about your day job. In the worst, a harasser or stalker could continue trying to communicate with you even after you block them.
