Description

Equalist. Not Elitist. See our mission statement at bit.ly/leaguemission So you want to date someone that shares your same education level AND ambition/drive? And maybe, just maybe, you'd like them to be in your same neighborhood, attractive enough to at LEAST look good in a black-and-white photo, with a height that meets your way-too-restrictive height preferences. Perhaps you also want them to share your religion as well. While your mother may call you picky, we call you self-aware. It's about to be happy hour, so go get 'em. #singleisin #neversettle League users now have the option of becoming a member by purchasing a yearly subscription for $199/year (equivalent to $15/month). This membership offers extra perks, customization, more prospects and invites to exclusive events, and is auto-renewing until cancelled by user via iTunes (or settings). Users who wish to cancel their subscription must do so at least 24-hours before the end of the current period .

  • The most boring dating app ever ... snooze.

    This app is horrible conceptually. When it feels like you're just trying to make money off of ppl that are trying to do something different with their lives ... it's a fail. I understand in app purchases, but only when it's worth it. You don't get enough out of the app initially in order to understand it as a product or get excited enough to want to purchase ANYTHING let alone a $200 subscription that still has tons of restrictions. Feels like a scam for sure. I was excited ... stayed on the wait list ... for nothing. If I could give lower than one star, I would. I suggest doing user research to find what's best for the user. You know ... the target audience should always come first. I'll pay for good digital life tools ... this isn't one of them.

    Abhorrently overpriced and ineffective. I'm moderately attractive (after about 20 minutes on Tinder, which they down, I've gotten 46 matches) and have yet to get a single match on this app. I thought it was the selective nature, not a big deal. A few times, I thought I got the same guy repeated. Today however I've gotten the same person in the same batch with two different profiles. It's more about the events they plan and you pay for than anything. Waste of time and cash.

    The $175 membership gets you only a few extra matches a day. The "stats" that they claim to provide are meaningless and are static. If you let a match expire, they charges you $12.60 to reconnect and there is no assurance that the person you are reconnecting with is active, or dating someone, or interested in reconnecting. They give you 3 "matches" per day, 5 if you pay the $175. However, there is limited criteria to create a match other than education, height, and age. So typically the matches are just three random people that they throw at you.

  • online dating not for me

    Straight cis female here. Two weeks into the Seattle beta..I've only tried Hinge & the League, so am not an online dating expert (although I did read Modern Romance lol), but here are my thoughts. 1. Definitely great visual design, hands-on concierge, and, due to the limit on # of prospects a day you definitely get the impression that people are carefully reviewing your profile as opposed to swiping. That's both good and bad, though, as you can overthink it; you have access to a potential match indefinitely if you haven't hearted or passed on it yet. 2. Love the idea of events where you can meet people offline as I usually can't tell if I'll be attracted to someone via photos alone. However, haven't had any events in Seattle yet so have to wait for those to crop up. 3. Unlike Hinge, where there are set questions for users to answer, 'about me' and 'interests' are the only customizable sections and people don't put in things that are a) comparable b) any use in starting a conversation. Example: Hinge asks 'most embarrassing moment' that kind of thing - League I've seen people listing the schools they went to as their 'interests.' Really, you can't think of anything more creative? 4. Hate their marketing collateral. If you've seen their "You Can't Inject Intelligence" advert you know what I mean. Need to change that. 5. You get shown profiles of others who have a similar 'League score,' which can be problematic as it factors in both popularity of your profile amongst people who have seen it and also how actively you use the app. So that means that even if people like your profile often, if you don't login daily or participate in group chats you can still have a low League score i.e. in theory a very popular yet disengaged profile could get matched with a very engaged not popular profile. Can't yet tell if that's fair or not. 6. Because League is so resume-focused and professional-seeming, men seem to be hesitant to say anything remotely imaginative. Again, only two weeks in, but conversations are almost overly polished. On one hand, definitely great not to be on the receiving end of crude comments - on the other hand, flirting is welcome :) Feels like I'm talking to someone in line at the grocery store. Might just be the demographic of men I'm attracting though. Or the fact that app is new and folks are testing the water. I'm going to stick with and see how goes as I suspect that there are some good people on here just trying to figure it out.
