It’s the age-old refrain of single ladies: Where can I meet someone decent? And, we’ve been there — after a series of dates less thrilling than watching paint dry, it’s easy to feel like throwing in the towel. That is, until Coffee Meets Bagel came on the dating app scene.
This private, totally free service sends you one potential suitor, or “bagel,” each day at noon (another reason to look forward to your lunch break). Pass or like the person, and if the likes are mutual, you can connect directly via text. Plus, each potential match is a mutual friend of one of your Facebook friends, so prescreening is basically built in.
After you set a date with a “bagel” of your choosing, all that’s left is finding the perfect outfit. Lucky for you, we’ve partnered with the dating service to give one winner a phenomenal $1,000 shopping spree for all your date-night needs. CMB will hand over $750 to spend at Shopbop, the online fashion mecca, while R29 is throwing in a $250 gift card to beauty giant Sephora. With all that swag, you’ll feel like your best self as you set out to meet new peeps this spring. All you have to do is enter your email address in the box below for your chance to win — and start lining up those "bagels!"
