It may sound like an unpleasant niche website for a handful of amoral people to whom wedding vows never meant very much.But it claims to have more than 100,000 members in the UK.No more having to go out to bars to find a one night stand - there’s an app for that. When you first download the app, rather than requiring your Facebook or email address to create an account, you just sign up; Pure doesn’t give a rip who you are, just like the person who you’ll be hooking up with later.
If you’re not interested, that’s okay - tomorrow you’ll get another bagel, curated just for you!If you want a long term relationship, use CMB because it recommends people to date based on people you’re friends with and actually enjoy being around - what more could you want in a serious relationship?Many of them are middle-class, many have young children.And all of them are looking for an opportunity to betray their spouses. But I wanted to find out what sort of woman uses such a site.CMB might not be as refined as other dating apps, but rather than select random people from a pool based on characteristics they have, CMB takes friends of your friends, and recommends people to date out of that pool based on what you want in a partner.
The catch with CMB is that you only get one bagel per day, so you’ll need to come back to the app each day if you don’t get a great recommendation right away.
So I paid £119 for a month's membership, giving me an entre to thousands of faithless females.
They are allowed to sign up for free as a way of ensuring the numbers are balanced between the sexes.
While it can be used for either purpose, it’s probably the best app for finding a short term, casual relationship.
It’s informal enough to compete with Pure, but not formal enough to compete with the likes of CMB.
There’s a plethora of dating apps out there, and they all try to differentiate themselves from each other, and some manage to do that, but when it comes down to it, they all do the same thing: replicate the already terrible process of finding a date in real life.
