Luxy Bans Mirror Selfies From User Profiles

Elite dating service Luxy will no longer accept profiles featuring mirror selfies, in an attempt to streamline the filtering process.

The platform claims to receive 30,000 applications everyday, and has created a new set of guidelines to make it easier for reviewers to ensure the right singles are being added to the community.

Head of PR Raffael Krause explained: “No matter if the person may be wealthy or not, some things lead to an immediate refusal of application. This includes posting blurry or mirror selfies but also a rude profile description will keep people away from joining us.

‘“The ideal Luxy candidate is sophisticated, successful, passionate and expresses this with his profile.”

Earlier this year, Krause told Thrive Global that he believes virtual reality dating will be the next big trend in the industry over the next 20 years.

Bumble is another app that has banned users from uploading certain mirror pictures, and Scruff recently introduced new photo guidelines that prohibit underwear shots and any images of hugging or kissing.

At the end of 2018, the Financial Times published an article giving an insight into the elite dating scene. It covered Luxy alongside The Inner Circle, The League and Toffee.
