Dating for ivy league graduates
That means the user has to be very thoughtful about creating a good profile, whereas other sites make it easier for you to fill in that info without thinking. On top of that, some of the men on the site went to random state schools.
This makes sense for an app (most apps only let you write a line about yourself) but not when you’re ostensibly clicking around to try to learn more about other users. People put up photos of things instead of themselves, and many of the photos of the people are oddly professional and formal. That’s fine, but if the whole point of your dating site is to only allow in men who went to top tier schools, stay on brand. Men pay to message but can still keep a profile open for free, so why wouldn’t they shut it down?
But dating services Sparkology and The League are unabashed about who makes the cut -- accomplished young professionals.
On Sparkology’s website, it says, “All members are college educated young professionals.
The app is hot, hot, hot right now -- there are more than 100,000 people on the waitlist across the country.
I obviously don't have a large enough sample size to know, but I would guess that there aren't too many minorities on this one.
This isn’t a bad thing, but I will say that being on The League is not too different from being on Hinge if you went to a good school.
SPARKOLOGYSparkology is a paid dating website (with an app to accompany it) that is “for young professionals.” It purports to only allow in men from elite schools, but for whatever reason, it doesn’t matter where the women get their degrees.
The feature that sets Sparkology apart is that women are allowed to approach whomever they want, but men are limited to a set number of messages and must pay per message instead of an unlimited subscription.
