New dating app dubbed ‘Tinder for elites’ matches S’pore users by education levels & ambition

Guess these people don't want a Low Kay Hwa love story.

Dubbed the Tinder for elites, The League arrived in Singapore on Jan. 28, 2020.

Here’s how the dating app introduces itself:

“Are you told your standards are too high? Keep them that way. We’re not saying Tinder doesn’t have its uses (hello Vegas!) but why not spend your time a little more… intelligently?”

To match its users, the app takes into account their:

  • Education level
  • Ambition
  • Location
  • Physical attractiveness
  • Interests

The filtering process

The League says that they use an “advanced screening and monitoring system”, to keep people who are highly engaged and ready for a long-term relationship.

Therefore, when you swipe right, your chances of matching are “sky high”.

Part of the process, it seems, is linking your LinkedIn account to the dating app. In fact, you will find it very difficult to set up a profile if you do not have a LinkedIn account — unless you pay.

The League then uses the work and school info on your LinkedIn to select your matches.

It also blocks current co-workers, so you won’t even get them as a match.

Users are allowed to set “ultra-specific preferences”, and the app only suggests a few Prospects a day that it thinks you will “really like”.

Basically, no casual swiping.

Here are some profiles that The League would like you to believe are on it:

If you prefer to pay, it’ll be S$44 a month, if you sign up for six months.

Otherwise, it’s S$82.98.

At this rate, you might as well hang around your work area.

Review

With only about 7,000 likes on Facebook, The League has received an overall review of 1.8 out of five.

Most of the complaints are from users who have paid but have not been approved.

Yikes.
