The statistics at Coffee Meets Bagel show that people who were more revealing in their profiles and engaging in their chats were more likely to couple up.

When online dating, you should have no more than three uncompromisable factors and consider other wants as nice to have.

You should make your profile as personal as possible. That will make it the most interesting.

My own learning experiences through dating have made me better at my job at Coffee Meets Bagel.

Normal dating is hard enough. Online dating is like dating on steroids!
