Dear Blues Match, I'm replying to the email not because I'm unhappy about the message in any way, but because I think I should get you to take my message off the site as I'm getting married soon to someone I met through your good offices.Hi there, The reason for cancelling my membership is that I am now in a very promising relationship with a man I met on Blues Match!Meredith Davis, a spokeswoman for the company explains, “She said, ‘I’ve curated my life and community around intelligent and high-achieving people. ’” She also didn’t want to risk being matched with colleagues or have one of them come across her dating profile.So in 2015 in San Francisco, Amanda launched The League, a dating app that selects members (in part) based on where they went to school and what they do for a living.“You want what you can’t have,” says Molly who is on the waiting list in Nashville.
That same day they added Raleigh, Portland, Phoenix and Detroit to their roster and are now in 27 cities across the country.
And the numbers don’t lie: 45% of members have advanced degrees, and 12% are CEOs. The League vets potential members using an algorithm that sorts through Linked In and Facebook profiles, but they make sure colleagues and friends are never matched. The League only takes a certain number of people at a time, the others end up on the waitlist.
For example, even before they were officially doing business in Charlotte, NC, there was a waiting list of more than 3,500 people.
Their website addresses something many of us single gals have heard, saying, “While your mother may call you picky, we call you self-aware.” But the founders know some people think the app is just plain elitist.
“I thought it sounded pretentious at first, but at the same time I was interested because you run into so many bums on the other ones,” says Molly Peach, a recent college graduate who does social media and client relations for Style Blueprint.I will not be renewing my membership because the second person I met up with through BM has proved to be my perfect match. Thank you for working way above the level of my expectations!I was lured in by the cracking profile of someone who has subsequently remarketed himself to me as a mediocre dullard. I didn't need it, however, as I had already received a Valentine from the wonderful man whom I met through Blues Match and with whom I am still head over heels in love.We've been seeing each other ever since, and I'd be crazy not to give her my full attention.
