New app The League has arrived for attractive upper percentiles who think Tinder’s dating pool is somewhat stagnated.
Launched by Stanford business graduate Amanda Bradford, the app caters towards “smart, good-looking & successful” people who “don’t need a dating app to get a date–you’re too popular as it is. But you should join The League.”
The app is currently in a private alpha, asking people to join a waiting list before they are admitted to the exclusive user base.
Once accepted, users can input their preferences from filters like age, height, distance, ethnicity and education.
You can also choose whether to hide your profile from your Facebook friends, LinkedIn connections and co-workers.
From here, the app promises “no fakes”, “no voyeurs” and “no randoms”, as their “advanced screening algorithm keeps our community well-balanced and high-quality.”
The app was promoted in a post on the Facebook page for students of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School that read:
“Was it your philanthropic contributions or your impressive college sports career? Your killer smile or your east coast private education? That big-shot CEO that you’re friends with on Facebook or the fact that you’re one of the few singer-songwriters in San Francisco and the odds were just in your favor? While you don’t know exactly what got you in, you do know that the best things in life are the most selective.”
The app is positioning itself as anti, or at least above, Tinder – using the hashtag #getmeofftinder on Twitter, and saying it was “designed for people who hate dating apps, by people who hate dating apps.”
