There has to be a happy, casual-cool medium between online dating sites’ algorithm for love and the fantasy that we will happen upon our dream guy or gal standing in the line at Four Barrel or lounging on the lawn at Dolores Park, right? Enter, the N.Y.-based online dating site Coffee Meets Bagel, which conveniently just launched in our neck of the woods.
If scouring sites like OKCupid or Match are just not your thing — this may pique your interest. Besides getting us weirdly excited at the prospect of coffee and/or bagels being involved, we love this sites’ mantra of matching you with one person per day at noon, based on your personal preferences.
Its Groupon-style daily match email is reason enough not to give the online dating scene the cold shoulder quite yet! You can click pass or like and an automated message will be sent and you two will (or will not!) be connected.
Intrigued by this new steez of online dating? Lucky for us, the super-cute sister trio behind Coffee Meets Bagel are throwing S.F.ers a New Year’s Eve countdown-themed launch party. What better way to mingle with S.F.’s most eligible ladies and gents than to bring out some NYC glitz and glam for a night, and add a little romance to your November routine? And if that weren't enticing enough, if you share the site across your social networks you can win a shiny-new iPhone5, or a wine-country escapade! Hubba hubba!
