High standards? Keep them that way. The League is a dating community designed for the overly ambitious that know what they want & refuse to settle. While some may call us exclusive or elite, in reality, we just have standards for entry - unlike every other dating app out there. We believe 3 quality matches are better than 100 bad profiles. Say goodbye to endless swiping, and hello to smart, sexy, and successful matches. While your mom may call you picky, we call you self-aware.
You can use The League for free as a Guest, or you can become a Member by purchasing a subscription. Membership doubles your matches and supports our mission (bit.ly/leaguemission) to foster equal relationships across the globe. Our success stories are frequently featured in the New York Times Wedding Section, see them at theleague.com/love

Ratings and Reviews
Exceeding my expectations
I have read many reviews here stating this is a scam, that you never meet anyone, etc. and this is NOT at all true. What is true is that this isn’t your average dating app. This actually has been what is missing from the world of dating in the modern era, a site where the instant gratification society is lessened and a more meaningful match is sought. If you are looking for a hook up or a series of single dates, then this would not be a place that you would find your needs being met. If you are seeking someone of similar educational level, values, interests, and a more meaningful potential at a relationship then this is absolutely a great start.
No, you will not see hundreds of matches, but you will see quality matches. The algorithm is quite impressive in pairing matches that I actually am interested in. I will see 3-5 people at a time and thus far, each one has been someone that I am interested to get to know better.
If you are looking to swipe right (or left or whatever it is) and meet that night, then again, not for you. Not a hook up site. Thankfully, for those of us who have been uncomfortable on quick match dating sites, the League is here.

Good in theory, not in practice
I think this is a cool concept in general and have definitely think this app tends to attract a higher tier. But at the same time this app compared to others has a very low response rate, in my experience. Because you’re only looking at 3 profiles a day you’re just going to be matching with less people. And I think the impact of matching with less people is that people, myself included, just don’t check the app as frequently for existing matches. Overall, cool concept but the idea that being shown less people necessitates a focus on quality feels like it makes more sense in theory than in practice.
On top of that, given that most matches are just not going to lead to anything, even if this app had a higher response rate I don’t think it would lead to much. If your match rate is 5%, which is substantially higher than the average for guys on other apps, that means you’re going to get a match about every week, and if 20% of your matches lead to dates, that means you’re getting a date from this app a little less frequently than once a month. And the reality is most dates don’t lead to anything.
This app could work, but they would have to significantly increase the number of people you’re shown per day. Getting shown 3 people per day just doesn’t make sense given the economics of dating apps.

Not what they claim to be
First of all, they make you wait to be let into the app to make it look “exclusive”, claiming you’re #7,304 on the wait list, but the numbers don’t mean anything. A friend of mine was approved before I was even though I was technically ahead of her on the queue. I mentioned this in the wait room chat and was suddenly approved. Now that I’m in, there no search functions, so you’re limited to the ppl they assign you “based on your preferences”. It took me three refreshes to get any matches which were actually within my preferences (I only limited the ethnicities). Since then, I get half within my preferences and half not. They give you a concierge who is supposedly a “real person here to address any questions or concerns” but when I brought up the matching outside my preferences issue with my concierge, the message was marked as “read” but answered days later with another automated “hey just checking it, let me know if you have questions or concerns” message. There are also chat group by interest, which they encourage you to join. I joined a few and noticed that no one actually uses them actively - I scrolled up and within seconds was looking a two year old messages. It seems like they have a good pool of singles - a lot of degrees and great careers and travelers etc- but I haven’t been able to connect with a single one and I’m not sure how long that will take given the above
