(Kang herself met her current boyfriend on CMB — the second long-term relationship she has found via the app. “[My boyfriend] was a bagel my sister gave me,” she says.) Coffee Meets Bagel is also one of the only dating apps with more women users than men (It boosts a 60/40 ratio) — A fact that Kang is proud of.
It's what inspired the global launch today of the app's newest iteration, called #Ladies Choice.
Mark Cuban offered them million for the company (the largest offer on the show at the time), but they turned him down.
Users purchase coffee beans to get additional bagels, and they can also purchase stats on their in-app dating successes and reports detailing which of their pictures other users find most attractive. The majority of the app's users are between 25 and 34 years old, however, most of the company's revenue comes from users over 30. In fact, while Kang isn't surprised that the app is doing better among this crowd. “When you are in your late 20s or 30s you are more likely to be meeting someone for a meaningful relationship, so you are getting more out of the app and enjoying it more." " They also have more disposable income,” adds Kang.It's so named because women get to make the first move: Male users will receive up to 21 matches at noon each day, then female users will get potential matches based on the men who have already "liked" them.
