The League Dating App - BS or worthwhile?

I recently stumbled upon a dating app called "the league". Apparently it's focused on tier 1 types with good education and jobs. Did some research, looks like it was started by a grad student at Stanford a few years ago but can't find any recent info. There is a very long waiting list and I'm curious if anyone ever used it. Is it the same prostitutes, whales and weed smoking art majors that use tinder and bumble? Or is this something genuinely worth looking into?

decent quality app and people on it. Not sure what your age is but there are plenty of professionals on it. Most people link their LinkedIn profile to provide some form of legitimacy. Although, you only get 3 "swipes" per day, so the potential for matches is much lower. I prefer hinge. Send me a PM and I can give you a referral link for The League that should help bump you up the line i believe.

Go all the way

I've never paid for it, but I was on it many, many years ago for a few months. There were a few positives and a few negatives:

1 - The quality of women, as measured by attractiveness and education/career, felt higher than the standard apps. That said, if the app is supposed to be for highly educated / ambitious professionals, I certainly don't think the women were held to that standard. Not sure what standard the men were held to -- I got approval within a couple of days despite the lengthy waitlist and none of my female friends was on it.

2 - You get a lot more information on someone than you do on the standard dating apps. This is great for your own personal filter. Similarly, it helps if you're a guy who isn't a 10/10 aesthetically but you have very strong academic/professional credentials. Today's dating apps are pretty much 100% looks oriented, but The League enables you to tout your other credentials a bit more.Β 

3 - You are limited to 3-5 matches a day. This forces you to actually read everyone's profiles. It severely limits you in terms of volume, but it also means people aren't just endlessly swiping looking for the perfect person who doesn't exist.Β 

Summary: I wouldn't pay the prices it appears they are asking, but it is a worthwhile platform to be on for free if that is still an option.

When I was single this was my number 3 app. Girls tend to be more relationship oriented but still had a couple of one night stands. It's only a few bucks to get laid, what's the big deal? First dates in tier 1 cities cost you like 100 bucks anyway. Gotta pay to play my man. Don't be a cheap skate.

Number 1 was hinge. That app had the best wife material.

Number 2 was bumble. Lots of superficial chicks who could be impressed with college / money / banking. Not loyal wife material, but hot.
