The League is a new dating app for, well, wealthy people. We have a pretty clear idea of the types of people on it.

Have you ever been on Tinder and felt like you were in simply swiping through a sea of riffraff? How many times has someone messaged you on OKCupid and you’ve thought to yourself, “Is this a poor?” If these are the biggest issues in your life because you’ve successfully landed a stellar high-paying job and you’ve never been systematically discriminated against, boy oh boy, do we have the dating site for you.

The League is a selective dating app for ambitious and elite people who, as the website claims, “don’t need a dating app to get a date — you’re too popular as it is.” But, of course, why would these elite people spend time searching on their own when they can have someone else do the bidding for them.

The app then organizes big events in exclusive places like Montauk with an open bar and mingling games so people feel more comfortable talking about their money and reminiscing about Harvard. The app boasts every member is someone you can bring home to the “[pa]rents without flinching, we promise.” I mean, guys, we’ve all seen Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner!!!! It’s like a country club, but a sexy country club, get it?

Here is The League’s breakdown of users by profession if you haven’t already pictured this exact infographic in your head.


The waiting list has over 100,000 people on it, so we weren’t able to sneak into the exclusive online club, but we have a pretty good idea of some of the profile we’d find. Here’s what we’re guessing.
