Tinder“Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a Grindr for, like, straight people? Coffee Meets Bagel Tinder’s bounty of options can be overwhelming.

Users are matched like with Tinder, but the onus is on the woman to message first.
(With same-sex matchups, this rule does not apply.) Straight male friends I’ve spoken to really enjoy the Bumble experience because it does away with the time and energy spent sending “hey, how are you” messages into the void. No need to bumble through a million messages to get to one date.

Of course, Jewish has the regular dating site criteria as well.
Coffee Meets Bagel — an app created by three women — offers daters a small curated batch of matches, doing away with Tinder’s overwhelming option paralysis.
Fewer matches allow users to focus on actually getting to know just one person.
Jewish singles can use virtually all the features of the dating service, at no cost, for fourteen days.
Start by creating your dating profile and then you can begin communicating with other Jewish singles via messaging and winks.
