What is The League?

The League is an online dating platform meant for successful individuals. And by successful, you have to have a good education, a good job and be attractive. It is designed to bring elite singles together who have a higher standard when it comes to partners. This is a platform that serves a very niche group of people.

The League uses a screening process to recruit users and it can take quite a bit of time for you to get in. The team at The League will verify if you are up to their standards only after thoroughly reviewing your profile. And the screening process has been known to be quite selective and time-consuming.

And you have to link your LinkedIn and social media accounts like Facebook for verification purposes. This is to gather information about your career and education which will be used to create matches later on. You also get a personal assistant who will guide you through your dating journey and will give you advice about creating a good profile for others to see.

There are mobile apps for both platforms Android and iOS so you don’t have to worry about the device you use. There is a free as well as a premium membership for members on the platform. The premium membership offers some exclusive features and perks.

 Is The League Dating worth joining? Why is it a good idea to leave The League Dating?

The League has been known to be quite a controversial platform when it comes to dating apps. It has been labeled as an elitist platform that looks down on average individuals. Let us talk about some of these controversies that might make you want to stay away from the platform.

The League has been criticized by a lot of people for being very exclusive when it comes to its members.  You have to have an outstanding education, good career, and ambition and be attractive to fit here. Members have to go through a rigorous and lengthy process of screening before getting accepted. They also have to provide their social media and LinkedIn accounts for verification as well.

Bloomberg Businessweek criticized the platform for being an elitist organization because of its application process and it was rightfully so if you ask most people. You really have to stand out from the common folks if you want to get into the dating pool of the “elites”.

Users are also required to provide their ethnicities before joining the platform. And since the app allows users to filter users who are non-white, the platform has been labeled to be racist as well. Previous users have also complained about the platform not being diverse enough as most of the users were white individuals. It might be because the majority of people who join the platform are white or the algorithm seems to favor white folks more than other ethnicities.

The League being a niche dating app is not available in many places of the world. It is only available in select cities in some countries. At the moment it is available in not more than 200 cities – most of them being in the US. if you are not in one of those cities then you cannot even use the platform. So, it is quite limited in availability.

The League also requires its users to regularly check in to the app. And if you are one of those people who don’t regularly check into their dating apps every once in a while, you will be banned for inactivity. If you do not check into the app every three weeks your account will get banned automatically.

It would not be a surprise to say that the membership fee is very expensive. The premium membership is one of the most expensive dating services you can use. If you are bothered by the ridiculously priced membership, it is time for you to rethink your choices.

After knowing about these facts I hope it changed your perspective of The League. It might have even made you think about deleting your account and leaving the platform for good. If you get elitist vibes from the company and don’t want to associate yourself with a blatantly elitist platform, there are other platforms for you to choose from. But we will leave that decision up to you.
