Online dating for professionals only
In order to join, potential users are screened and selected based on their education and professional history.Not everyone gets in – only the cream of the crop get the email informing them that they have “been drafted into The League”.“Users are getting that true sense of who someone is through a highly accountable and trustworthy network.” In addition to Be Linked, there are apps for those looking for an even more niche dating app than The League.Among them is Luxy, self-described as Tinder without the poor people.It used to be that if you wanted to meet someone of a certain caliber, you would venture to a particular bar. And you’ll have to be driven to make it into The League – there’s a waiting list 100,000 people long.
“I always hold a little hope that this is going to be the lucky day and this match is going to be perfect.” For those tired of waiting, there are other options like Be Linked, which has more than 50,000 users in more than 100 counties.But we are going to be expecting you to have accomplished something in your professional career to compensate for that. “We don’t plan to grow that number until we have the product,” said Bradford. Daniel Ratcliffe, 25, also did not have to wait too long before making it into The League.Maybe you didn’t go to Oxford, but you started a non-profit to help underprivileged children in Africa and you’ve run that company from the ground-up. Krista White, 23, lives in Silicon Valley, California and works in public relations. She has been on the waitlist for The League since February. “When you first sign up for it, it puts you on a waitlist.That to me is a just as impressive, if not more, than someone who went to Tier 1 university.” That’s not to say The League isn’t exclusive. “Right now I am like No 8,000 out of 100,000,” she told the Guardian. I don’t know.” Unlike White, Nguyen spent just “a couple of days” on the wait list before getting drafted into The League. I was like No 11,000 and I thought: ‘Oh, I guess this isn’t going to happen’,” said Ratcliffe, who lives in East Village in New York City and works in digital entertainment and media.“Then a couple of days later, I got an email saying that I had been approved and I have been on it ever since.
