A dating club dating after age fifty
Demi Lovato recently praised the app in an interview with Yahoo Music, “It’s so cool. They say it's for "people who design clothes, (who are) on our radios, televisions, writers, athletes, chefs, comedians, dancers, travellers, students, artists, and builders of companies." How it works: As with a private members' club, prospective applicants must be recommended by existing members.
Each current member can share referrals with someone who they think would be a good fit. The app is linked to members' Instagram accounts, and rumour has it you are unlikely to be accepted unless you have at least several thousand followers.
How it works: The League members hook up their Linked In and Facebook profiles which are examined by an algorithm that decides whether somebody can join.
It also uses the data to stop you seeing work colleagues or friends on the app.
It offers members monthly social events at high-end venues, and lets users share their upcoming travel plans.
It has probably the biggest global presence of all the apps surveyed, and in addition to the cities mentioned above is present in London, Manchester, Dubai, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Madrid, Milan, Rome, Singapore, Stockholm, Sydney, and Zurich.
Once you're in you can fill your profile with your best Instagram photos and stories, and even pick a soundtrack to play in the background. You can only sign up to The League under a year-long membership for an upfront cost of 9/£150 per year, which equates to about £12.50 a month. Founder Amanda Bradford's goal is to keep the club "well-balanced, diverse, and classy." Who: The League says it is for career-focused men and women too busy to swipe through hundreds of profiles.
Around 95% of members went to university, the app said, and many work as entrepreneurs, consultants, advertising execs, and lawyers.Acceptance rate: 40%, and it claims there are currently 450,000 people globally on its waiting list.Users don't have profiles and don't swipe — instead the app puts on a series of events.How it works: Again, decisions are made using Linked In and Facebook profiles.Wereko-Brobby said the app is highly selective according to education, and joked that she probably wouldn't get in to her own club. Clients can pay £200 an hour-long consultation followed by one date a month.
