“A lot of dating sites are trying to distance your professional life and your dating life as if they were two separate things.But to understand someone fully, I think you need both aspects of them, because as much as we try to say we are not our job, a part of us is our job,” he told the Guardian.He, too, likes that his dating profile on The League looks more professional and that he is able to connect with other hard-working people his age. “We really believe that people know what they want and we let them be picky and have high standards,” Bradford told the Guardian. We don’t see a ton of users doing that – probably about 10% or so do have strong preferences around ethnicity.” According to her, the members will first be showed matches that fit their preferences, “but once they run out of those matches, then we will show them everyone. Ratcliffe said that he did not use the ethnicity filter.“I think that’s absurd and ridiculous, but as an African American woman in the dating pool, it would be nice to know that someone I was matched with doesn’t not like black girls,” said White.This way the app can ensure your profile is not visible to your professional connections, while at the same time giving potential matches a better idea of who you are as a person based on your education and professional experience.If you’re not a Goldman banker or a tech entrepreneur, don’t worry.I am not sure what their criteria is for accepting members.” Ratcliffe said he wondered if he would get in – after all, he did not attend an Ivy League college. He adds that he has never heard of people “catfishing” on Linked In, creating a fake online profile to trick people in romantic relationship.He did attend New York University for his master’s degree. “I think because you have to go on the waitlist, everyone is more serious about dating and about sending messages.” Nguyen, who said his response rate on other apps was about 20% to 30%, said: “On The League, I have got close to a 100% response rate with my matches.” The League also comes with a number of filters that allow members to select their ideal date’s education attainment level, height, age and ethnicity.
Not everyone gets in – only the cream of the crop get the email informing them that they have “been drafted into The League”.She had no control over who could view her profile, including potential business connections, bosses and coworkers.She also felt like she had no idea who the people she was being matched with were.The men know that women they meet in The League are career oriented, intelligent, ambitious and are working just as hard.
That’s the kind of ethos that we want our community to have.” The League has been described as Tinder for the elites.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.
