Thanks to a friend who earned VIP status on the app, a few weeks ago I got in and took a look around — but it didn’t really live up to the hype. Keep reading to see what it was like. First, I had my friend send me a link to join The League. The link took me to the App Store, where I downloaded the app. This was my first look at the exclusive app. The next screen made a lot of promises. I’m not really sure how the threat of voyeurs plays into online dating, but okay.
The League links to Facebook, so I had to give it permission to access my info. It’s cool that they prevent people from your current company from seeing you. Nobody wants to run into a coworker on a dating site. Now for the fun part: filling out the profile.
Followed by the REALLY fun part: Dictating exactly what I want in a match. The height-obsessed users of Tinder would love this. Or at least not yet. I was going to have to wait.
But at least my friend’s VIP status on the app meant I was bumped to the top of the list. While waiting to get in, I was able to play around with my profile. I wish I could take “Tinder Booster” off since I only follow that account for work, but I can’t. Thankfully, I CAN take away the photo of me and my ex that auto-populated the app, though. I know from an interview with an online-dating expert that ex photos can be a deal breaker. A few hours after joining the waitlist, I got in! They like me, they really like me!
Reading the rules, I find it interesting that I only get to pick from a few guys per day. I guess that makes each match more special, but it doesn’t sound as fun as Tinder. A cute but fake “concierge” sent me the ground rules. There are a lot of ground rules. Also, I’m pretty wary of anyone who uses the word “classy” unironically. Okay, can I see some guys already? It took a few minutes to load.
