Dating web sites for wealthy
There was no context to their profiles – just their name and their photo. “I felt like I should just go ahead and create an app that I myself wanted to use and solve all the pain points I had identified on the other apps,” she said.

What makes The League special, according to Bradford, is that it is synced with Linked In and Facebook.
She had no control over who could view her profile, including potential business connections, bosses and coworkers.
She also felt like she had no idea who the people she was being matched with were.
This way the app can ensure your profile is not visible to your professional connections, while at the same time giving potential matches a better idea of who you are as a person based on your education and professional experience.
“I think that’s absurd and ridiculous, but as an African American woman in the dating pool, it would be nice to know that someone I was matched with doesn’t not like black girls,” said White.
But we are going to be expecting you to have accomplished something in your professional career to compensate for that. “We don’t plan to grow that number until we have the product,” said Bradford. Daniel Ratcliffe, 25, also did not have to wait too long before making it into The League.
Maybe you didn’t go to Oxford, but you started a non-profit to help underprivileged children in Africa and you’ve run that company from the ground-up. Krista White, 23, lives in Silicon Valley, California and works in public relations. She has been on the waitlist for The League since February. “When you first sign up for it, it puts you on a waitlist.
The men know that women they meet in The League are career oriented, intelligent, ambitious and are working just as hard.
That’s the kind of ethos that we want our community to have.” The League has been described as Tinder for the elites.
