People from all around the world are accessing dating apps the same way they access Google to search for common topics. Online dating has become as favorable as wanting to work remotely.
And it's equally easy to be successful in it. You just have to pick the right dating app.
With the online community already used to dating apps, the scene has been swarming with new apps almost every year. In this article, we'll list five exclusive dating apps that professionals and even celebrities are currently using.
So, take some pictures, and let's go do some sign-ups.
The Best Exclusive Dating Apps For Elites
If you're bored of the profiles you see on Tinder, maybe Raya will excite you a bit. One of the coolest dating apps in space, Raya has housed some of the famous TV stars we like and more. Some of them include Demi Lovato, Channing Tatum, Matthew Perry, and even Trevor Noah.
Okay, so you might be frighted a bit already. What are your chances of dating on the same app as Demi Lovato or Trevor Noah? They are pretty low because the acceptance rate is less than 8%, BUT the good news is that you don't have to be a celebrity to join.
Founded in February 2015, Raya stated to be a “membership-based community for people all over the world to connect and collaborate.” One year later, it acquired Chime, a video messaging app. Since then, it has been growing steadily, winning nicknames like The SoHo House of dating apps and even Illuminati Tinder because of the exclusive member base.
Each application is manually vetted by a committee of 500 professionals behind the screens. In order to stand the chances of being accepted into their community, you have to join through a referral from another Raya user and have an impressive professional background and a considerable following on social media. They state that they look for people who have “something extra” but don't actually define what they can be.
- It's a true exclusive dating app for high-quality matches.
- It protects your privacy with its features.
- You get the opportunity to date famous and creative people.
- Challenging to get accepted (you have more chances applying to Harvard Business School).
- Joining is possible only with a referral from another member.
- Available only for iOS devices.
Tinder has been holding its reputation throughout these years, and any dating app that attempts to compete with it should aim to offer something extra if they want to have any chances against it. Luxy, did just that. When launched back in 2014 with the tagline “Tinder, minus the poor people,” it drove controversies among the wide public.
However, the app stands for something most of us crave: a space where you can date wealthy people with high standards. The founders state on their website that at least 60% of members have an annual income that surpasses $200k, which sounds pretty impressive.
The application process is quite unique as well. Rather than having an algorithm or a specialized staff approve or reject applications, a part of the decisive process is carried away by the members themselves. They are asked to vote for your eligibility within 24 hours of applying and if you receive positive votes from less than 50%, you're rejected.
The bright side is that, if you get accepted by the community, it means that over 50% of members already like you. So you have considerable chances to find a compatible match. After joining, you can pick from their pricey memberships that start at $99 per month.
- You'll receive an answer within 24 hours.
- Available for both iOS and Android.
- Restricted only for well-off users.
- Subjective to glitches.
- It doesn't allow sugar dating.
- Approval to join this exclusive dating site depends on members' choices.
3. The League
With so many people complaining about the special treatment that elite members of society get, the League founder, Amanda Bradford, has stated publicly that the dating app shares no such intention. However, once you attempt to join the platform, you notice why people suspected that idea.
Nonetheless, the League stands as an effective elite dating app for people with high standards. Like most of the elite dating apps in this article, it comes with a waitlist that keeps you in for months before approving or rejecting your application. There's a way to speed up the process which includes purchasing a membership.
However, that only speeds up the application process and doesn't guarantee you'll be approved. As per the quality of profiles inside the application, the website vouches that at least 50% of members have studied in one of the Top 40 colleges around the world. The app comes with a fantastic live event twice a week that allows users to enter virtual speed dating.
You can participate on League Live if you have a high League score (which depends on the completeness of your profile, activity, and not having many expired matches). The event occurs each Sunday around 8 PM, where singles have the chance to join on 3-minute video date with three matches.
- Allows adding video profiles.
- Supports video chatting.
- Available on both iOS and Android devices.
- book and LinkedIn account.
- The verification period is lengthy.
- It's quite expensive (starting at $99 per month).
4. Inner Circle
The Inner Circle focuses on building a community of like minded people that cares about authentic values rather than just hooking up aimlessly. The dating app hosts a wide number of 4.8+ million members searching for love from 66+ cities worldwide.
One unique thing about their community is that it constantly organizes nights out in the form of events where people can attend and meet with one another face-to-face. Since its early days in 2012, the app has functioned with the idea of reinventing dating online. (That's because the CEO himself, David Vermeulen, was struggling to meet someone new.)
Similar to the League, you have to stay on the waitlist for a while until you receive a response. You can decide between LinkedIn or Facebook when signing up to help keep the app filled with authentic members.
The application's interface appears to be friendly to the users and allows for comfortable browsing. However, receiving a response to your application may take some time. Each application is manually checked for approval. Though the qualification criteria are disclosed in full.
- A low percentage of scammers or fake profiles.
- The company organizes special events for its members.
- There are more women than men in the app, unlike most dating apps.
- The waiting list response takes time.
- Non-paying members have access to limited features.
- The app is available only in certain cities around the world.
The name says it all. The site is intended to bring millionaires to one dating platform and it's quite specific about it. Having been founded in 2001, the site counts years of experience in the dating industry. With applications compatible with both iOS and Android devices, it has amassed an audience of over five million users so far.
Fraud is common online, and anyone can pretend to be a millionaire on the internet. So Millionaire Match has taken proper measures towards this. For new members to get admitted to the platform, they must provide income checks and identity checks to verify their status. The tight verification process makes it impossible for scammers to pass through.
Suppose members want to verify their millionaire status and claim to be certified millionaires on the platform. In that case, they must have an income of over $200k and a net worth of over $1 million. All of this needs to be documented to be taken into consideration.
As per the paid memberships, the minimal package starts at $70 per month. Not much for real millionaires. However, it's worth mentioning that you don't have to be a millionaire to join the platform. You have to be a millionaire only if you want to claim the badge of a certified millionaire.
- Fantastic customer support.
- Offers customized dating services.
- Allows only real millionaires to hold such status on the platform.
- Profiles that are not millionaires may not be real.
- Be prepared to find gold diggers that are in for the money.
- Without a paid membership, you can't message anyone.
