Exclusive US dating app The League is taking on popular niche dating sites by letting its users filter each other by religion.
In its latest app update, version 2.0.2, The League has added the ability to set preferences for religion, meaning its members can now filter potential matches by their religious beliefs.
Speaking about why they added the filter, The League founder Amanda Bradford said: “Our users are smart and know what they want in a partner. Some people call it pickiness, I call it self-awareness.”
Users can also filter by age, height, location, education and even ethnicity – a filter gay dating app Scruff was recently questioned about.
The League, which was called the “power couple” app by the New York Times, is an admissions-based dating community designed for high-achieving professionals looking for love.
The app currently has a waiting list of over 100,000 and is now in private beta in San Francisco and New York, and will be launching in Los Angeles in the next month.
The app’s new update has also let users on the waiting list chat to a concierge, as well as adding improvements to its chat messaging system.
Earlier this year, the company added a feature that lets users send their matches a drink or bouquet of flowers.
