The League is an elitist invite-only dating app which goes live in Detroit on Monday, November 6th, 2017.
Started in San Francisco in 2015, The League has spread all over the country with the goal of helping people find partners who are compatible with their professional goals.
Applicants are thoroughly screened (ie: higher education, career, job title, race, net worth, etc) before being admitted to the small dating pool.
Applicants must share their Linkedin profile and provide 6 photos and a detailed personal biography.
Detroit will launch with 500 members in a 100-mile radius. Originally, 2,522 people applied in Detroit but only 500 made the cut. There is still a 3,000+ person waiting list.
In addition to the annual $200 fee, users removed for inactivity or flakiness pay $25.00 re-admit fee.
The League is positioning its main rival Tinder as a nasty immature alternative for lower class people who only want fling-sex and not genuine relationships.
