If you like the cut of the fella’s jib, you can accept the match and message each other.If you don’t, you simply pass and wait for a new bagel in twenty-four hours.I know that distinction may seem silly, but it's how the algorithm works currently.Some of this is due to simple supply and demand of the one-to-one matching ratio.A friend (who wishes to remain anonymous because she doesn't want her family knowing she online dates) noticed something strange recently after she had been using the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel for a while: It kept sending her a certain type of guy.Which is to say, it kept suggesting men who appear to be Arabs or Muslim.
Oath will also provide relevant ads to you on our partners' products.
Consequently we will send you folks who have a high preference for bagels of your own ethnic identity, we do so because our data shows even though users may say they have no preference, they still (subconsciously or otherwise) prefer folks who match their own ethnicity.
It does not compute "no ethnic preference" as wanting a diverse preference.
Which was odd only because while she herself is Arab, she never expressed any desire to date only Arab men.
Coffee Meets Bagel’s whole thing is that it does the sorting for you.
Arab women on the app are a minority, and if there are Arab men who state that they prefer to only see Arab women, then it’s going to show them as many Arab women as it can, even if those women (like my friend) had chosen “no preference”.
