Description
Want to date someone who shares your drive? And maybe you'd like to meet someone attractive who looks good in black-and-white photos, courteous enough to use proper punctuation, and flexible enough to fit into your way-too-restrictive schedule? While your mother may call you picky, we call you self-aware. It’s happy hour, so go get ’em.' We’ll do the vetting so you can do the petting. League users now have the option of becoming members by purchasing several subscription options. Membership offers extra perks, customization, more prospects and invites to exclusive events. Depending on what term you choose, your Membership will last for 1 month, 6 months, or 12 months, and automatically renew at those intervals from the point of purchase onward. If you wish to cancel your membership before it renews, you must do so at least 24-hours prior to the end of the current period. Payment will be charged to your iTunes Account at the confirmation of purchase. Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, and will be renewed at the same price the next term. Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to your Account Settings after purchase.

Server Issues
by kingcak39 on 2019/06/18 01:22
The app could be good. However, in the last few months, I have experienced significant server issues. Matches won’t load, messages won’t show despite a notification, and I can’t even log in. At the same time, the concierge sends messages about how I haven’t logged in in days thus jeopardizing my standing with the app. Fix the app so people can log in, review their matches and converse.
Exclusive... and boring
by coffeeesq on 2019/06/17 19:06
In a word, the app is forgettable. The initial interest of joining it because of its “exclusivity” was immediately washed away by the how laughably dull the experience is. The entire app is set up to make money off of people with too much cash to burn. By being a free member, you only get three or four potential matches a day (compared to unlimited on other apps). That’s it, unless you count the “concierge” feature that just spams you with pointless rambling messages. BUT, guess what! Do you want more than three matches? You can get that, if you pay! Want someone to see your profile first? Sure, just pay! If you’re smart enough to not waste your money on the added features, the app becomes completely forgettable. You log on for thirty seconds at 5:30 to look at the three profiles you’ve been given and close it until the next day. The quality of matches isn’t any different than other apps. Compared to bumble, it’s almost identical... except you’re not limited to three matches a day. Overall, just a real lame experience.
App is Riddled with Bugs
by mbb15f on 2019/06/17 02:23
I’ve enjoyed the service the app provides, unfortunately the app has coding problems. For example, the “Report a Bug” tab doesn’t even work.
App doesn’t work. Spinning wheel
by applecustomer1234xyz on 2019/06/17 01:14
June 14, 2019 For all the money we pay for this app, you’d think it would at least feed us more unappealing prospects. Did not even that. Maybe it’s so exclusive that nobody qualifies anymore :-)
Great Concept. Poor execution.
by Ucycfyuivi on 2019/06/16 23:26
I got accepted into the League within 24 hours and at first I really enjoyed it. Until I realized all of the ideal matches were likely fake accounts as they never spoke to me. Shortly after my matches got progressively worse. I realize physical attraction is subjective but I was expecting good looking professionals that like myself were too busy with work and personal goals to spend a lot of time in the dating scene. What I found was 3 matches a day of overweight, unattractive men. There’s no point in claiming to be an elite app if you’re not. A real human being needs to scan through the accounts before approving them and make sure the candidates would at least be attractive on a general scale. It’s clear that the majority of my matches are people who paid to bypass the waitlist which takes away all credibility from the app.
Impressed!
by leaguelove! on 2019/06/16 20:10
I’m pretty new to the app but enjoying it so far. I see some complaints that it is a money scam... Although more features would open up to me if I did pay, i am currently getting good use out of the app as an unpaid guest. Most guys that I am matched with are cute and have a good education and job like myself. Much better than what you find on other dating apps. I see people complaining that the matching process is too slow.. It took me 6 days to get my first match. I think that’s great! I would expect the process to be slower. You’re not on tinder swiping right on 20 people a day.. so you get less matches. But the trade off is that the matches are quality. Keep up the good work!! Update: I met my current boyfriend on this app! I am so thankful for this app. It did a phenomenal job of matching the two of us up ❤️
Huge waste of money in KCMO
by Julzz7777777 on 2019/06/16 00:11
This very expensive dating app obviously does not have enough participants from my area within my age range. I’ve been on this app 4 days. The first day I was able to view five potential matches from around my area. Days 2-4 I was only shown people from several states away that also did not fit my age, ethnicity or height preferences (like nowhere close). I should not have been charged over $250 if there weren’t an adequate number of participants in my city. I wanted to try this app because they claim to have higher quality, educated and successful participants. I would not have bothered if The League would’ve been transparent stating the only people they have to offer require air travel to meet. I’m a very attractive woman and am certain if there were enough participants from my area I would have zero difficulty making a connection. Perhaps this company should offer their free memberships in cities they where they are trying to become established instead of ripping people off. I asked for a refund but have yet to receive a response.
Worst and dumb
by jujusismon on 2019/06/15 08:05
The worst app I’ve ever participated. Dumb
Don’t do it!
by Galinmaine on 2019/06/14 12:08
I live in NYC area most of the “matches” that were offered to me were fake accounts and the few they weren’t were very far away or not exactly the clientele i was promised with this purchase. Speaking of purchase, it was over 200 but in order to access who “likes” you, you have to pay more. I also joined in a group chat where men and women were complaining about the number of scammers on the app (completely unacceptable) and that people were states away, 100 miles plus. This was all within 48 hours of purchase - “concierge” said they can give refunds but Apple can - he spelled out the instructions but what he offered didn’t exist on Apple. Totally robbed of over 20” dollars. Not ok, don’t do it.
This app is awful
by RayoV on 2019/06/14 04:06
I tried this app because my friend said she was on it. It’s selling you “exclusive”, and is the app equivalent of waiting in line and having one of those idiots ask how many followers you have to let you in the door of a pretentious club while chewing gum to show off the diamond on his tooth. They love telling you what number you are in line and using lame LA wanna be words like “stellar” “notorious waitlist” “power move””your concierge” ahhhh and I can’t figure out how to permanently delete it, because of course, that is hidden somewhere. My “concierge” won’t answer the emails. Help! Delete!!! PS - thanks for the reply insinuating that I’m looking for “random hookups.” I don’t randomly hookup with anyone. If you read properly, you will see that I am complaining about how pretentious it is and how there is no way to delete your profile.
Worst Dating App Out
by Franky Ritz on 2019/06/13 03:13
This app is a complete and utter joke. First off the wait thing is absolutely ridiculous. Took me 2-3 months to get in. Now that I’m “in”, it’s absolute trash. I get literally 3 match suggestions a day (and they aren’t any good). The groups are full of weird people - many desperate guys trying anything to meet up. So yea in conclusion - do not waste your time. Tinder, Hinge, CMB are all better. Bumble is trash too, but which app is worse is up for debate - I think this wins - solely bc of how it tries to be exclusive and special, meanwhile it’s absolutely nothing special. I implore you to look elsewhere and not waste your time.
Poor app performance
by BrookeK P on 2019/06/12 05:30
The app itself is difficult to use. For example, you try to upload a picture and it’ll just spin, and spin... annndd spin, until it says request timed out. Tried to connect LinkedIn, and the screen went white and nothing happened but now where it says LinkedIn in the profile setup it’s blank with no way to add it anymore. Very annoying. Deleting the app after having it for 15 mins.
Terrible
by sgboulder on 2019/06/12 05:28
I’ve not had much experience with dating apps, but I’ve had THE SAME FIVE GUYS on my happy hour matches for SIX MONTHS. And I’m a successful, attractive woman. Total waste of time and money.
Seems cool
by Lauren homzey on 2019/06/10 23:08
Idk why everyone is complaining about the waitlist. I was approved in one day. The app clearly tells you ways to get approved faster and types of clear photos you should be taking. Seems pretty cool with the people I’ve seen so far. More classy than other apps which I like. I just wish I got to see more than 3 people a day
Use coffee meets bagel instead
by user170623 on 2019/06/10 22:10
I subscribed for the paid version, and couldn’t find a single reasonable connection. Most people I connected with didn’t bother to respond. Don’t waste your money here, use coffee meets bagel instead.
Privacy Concerns
by The maxx12 on 2019/06/10 17:08
I got halfway through setting up my profile but couldn’t finish because I did not list my profession or education. The app states that you have to link your Linkedn to pull the information. In my opinion, this is reckless. It makes you accessible to anyone and it’s not like there are background checks on the users. So, you would have your name and places of employment for anyone one to stalk or use for identity theft. And an app with what claims to be more prestigious one might assume that the members have high paying jobs, thus great targets for fraud. I do not have Linkedin or Facebook for these reasons. Apart from the idiocy of the social justice warriors, it’s a waste of time. I got spammed like crazy on Linkedin. Anyway, I opted to pay the $ to keep my info private and was unable to process it. I keep getting these notices that there’s a waiting list and that’s why. It might be great for ambitiously naive people, but not for anyone who values their privacy.
Suddenly need to pay money to reactivate
by eeemmmmi on 2019/06/10 05:51
After using this app at least once a month I was informed I need to reactivate my account. If I don’t pay a fee, I’m at the end of the waitlist. When did this happen and why?
Terrible.
by Litteral on 2019/06/09 17:08
Been on the waiting system for a while now and I doesn’t even seem worth it. They push their membership program, saying that it will get you approved faster. Why would I fork over money for an app I haven’t even experienced if I’m on the waiting list? In addition, the app staff go through the candidates personally and who’s to say they aren’t biased? Based of the other reviews here, there seems to be little to no diversity on there. As a black female I would love to know there is diversity before forming over my cash for an app that lacks it. That only leads to disappointment and wasted money on my part. How is the app being marketed to different communities?
Constant upselling
by am41889 on 2019/06/06 11:38
The apt pretends to be a different filter than other dating apps, but really they all have the same settings these days— this one just takes a lot longer to match with anyone and if you want to do anything to speed that up, it costs a lot (like $5 or something to show your profile to a person you like in the near future). I’ve matched with good people, but generally the other apps are much more efficient.
Preferences
by JG94M on 2019/06/06 01:57
Preferences are not hard filters, resulting in my overall score dropping for pickiness. For such an expensive and “exclusive” app, I am surprised that the algorithm is now only feeding me people outside my preferences.
Legit folks
by Analisa Santina on 2019/06/05 22:09
I have met some amazing people from this app... even though I have not made a match yet, I really hope it is one of these stellar peepz.
Lack of communication
by macbook pro UT yr 2 on 2019/06/05 10:24
I have to say I’m disappointed by this app. I feel like I’m right i the group this app is targeting and it’s even impossible to get them to answer a question about becoming a subscriber. I’ve been on their waitlist for a while and decided I really did want to start dating seriously so I reached out to their ‘Concierge’ over a week ago with questions about membership and the differences between the different plans and have been totally ignored. I completely understand that they want to prioritize their current subscribers when responding to messages but over a week is unacceptable especially when someone is trying to pay you. Either this nameless 36 year old concierge is just flat out terrible, mostly a bot or they just don’t care about earning or keeping paying clients. I don’t think right now it would be easy to convince me to subscribe since there has literally been NO response to either of my two inquiry’s in the last 8 days.
Exclusivity as Capital
by getbent2711 on 2019/06/04 17:31
Imagine creating a dating app, feigning a dedication to committed members and serious vetting, just to expose your company as grossly exploitative and shallow. Initially, the 700,000+ waitlist is pedaled as a mechanism to weed out those who aren’t “serious,” yet, people can easily buy their way out with a membership. Easily recognizable money-grab. I was curious, so I kept the app for about a week, linked all of my accounts and social media, regardless of how incredible invasive some of the requirements were, and did everything within my power to decrease my wait-time without paying money. I checked the app 2x a day (increases your waitlist priority in exchange for their increased app engagement), volunteered to be a scout (now they have my private email), and finally endorsed my roommate to see what a difference it would make. Every day, I would move about 2,000 spots, but was still at 600,000. After my roommate signed up, I was moved to 200,000. Impressive, until we discovered that she got approved within 2 days due to her large Instagram following. 2 days. I waited over 9, and still was never approved by the time I deleted. At the rate I was moving up, I wouldn’t have been reviewed for nearly 4 months. I’d like to say that it is embarrassing from a productivity standpoint that you would ever make people wait more than 3 days, especially when it is clearly stated that those with a membership are guaranteed review in less than 24 hours. Again, a CLEAR exploitation of people to convince them to spend their money without guaranteed acceptance. There’s a lot to be said about how popularity on social media plays a role, and for an app claiming to provide genuine connections— it’s truly pathetic that this is even considered, we all know Tristan Thompson surely wasn’t serious (but I digress). My largest issue with this app actually came after my roommate and I looked at her matches— all of which were white men. She did not have any match preferences set, that is just how pathetic the app is. It caters to white people, caters to wealthy people who have monthly funds to purchase a membership, and caters to “popularity,” as if ANY of these factors play genuine roles in dating. This app lacks diversity, proper outreach, and apparently adequate staffing to handle its “waitlist,” and genuinely has no place in the app store. It’s a scam for your money, and doesn’t even maintain exclusivity it it can be bought. A majority of these people are on Bumble and Tinder. Save your money, and report this app run by a money-hungry white lady.
Drag
by adan only plz on 2019/06/04 16:19
This app is such a drag of time. They keep you on this waiting list, and keep you updated on your position with the pressure and constant repetition of certain things as priority to members this, upgrade as member to decrease wait time that, and how as a nonmember you basically cannot enjoy a lot of the features on the site. It was disappointing. And on top of that, as I tried to request deactivating my profile, they said they’ll keep my data incase I choose to return, which is very unlikely. Ps, it’s been almost a week, they keep me teased with this ridiculous pressure to upgrade. I’m so over it. Please just delete my data.
Outside of NY? Not worth it.
by RLR0315 on 2019/06/03 23:34
The League concept is great, but does not translate into practice. The app does not have the volume or quality of users it claims anywhere outside of New York. I asked for matches within 40 miles of my location and receive candidates not only in other cities, but mostly in other states. My assigned concierge for The League fully admits the app does not have the claimed following and even told me I should contact Apple to get my money back with instructions on how to do just that. I also do not think the app actually works since I am coming across some of the same people I have matched with in other apps, but yet do not on this one. Until the app has more users, it is a waste of a lot of money.
Absolute scam. Can’t seem to delete account. Possibly illegal.
by Trov38484 on 2019/06/03 03:08
The app is a joke and a scam. Don’t download it, don’t give them your information. It won’t let me unlink my Facebook account or my linkedin account, and I can’t permanently delete my account. I can only hide it. I don’t know how it is legal to run an app this way.
Meh.
by YBG29 on 2019/06/02 13:42
Doesn’t provide adequate opportunity.
Trash
by Reciews By Me on 2019/06/02 00:17
After the hype of making me wait months to get in, because I chose to not pay to get in, the random matches were all 1. Too far away, 2. Men employed in professions I would not consider 3. Way too young. So, I decided to give the “groups” a try. Without going into details of the types of conversations in the chat rooms, point is, anyone looking for descent people who are properly employed, who are not looking for a hookup, this is NOT the place to find quality.
Waste of Time
by BarbaraC7 on 2019/05/31 21:52
You make an account, and unless you pay to be a member, you’re out on a “waitlist” that never moves. You’re promised that you’ll be expedited if you link your social media accounts, only to get an email saying the waitlist is “longer than usual” because “so many people are signing up to be members.” They try to force you to purchase a membership by emailing and inboxing that you’ll “jump the line” if you pay to become a member. Terrible app and a complete waste of time.
Worst customer service
by 000999000057 on 2019/05/30 23:05
I’ve been waitlisting for several days. They wanted me to link up with LinkedIn. I don’t have it as I’m financially secure and don’t work. I simply ask how I completely delete my profile twice now. Over 24 hours no response. Just keeps asking for LinkedIn I don’t want my profile listed
I Met The Love Of My Life
by Divayanni on 2019/05/30 12:26
I would not have met my boyfriend if not for this app. It has been one year since we met on The League and we will be moving in together next month. He tells me all the time he's waited for me for so long and cannot wait for us to spend our lives together. He's my best friend, my rock, and according to him, my future husband
Love the idea
by Tryan18 on 2019/05/28 22:11
Seems like solid execution, that’s leading to legitimate quality “matches” with great care taken in protecting the classy environment.
Worthless
by Kiyeka noy on 2019/05/28 02:09
This app is not good, from only giving you three people per day when they used to give five, to rolling out new features like live chats that really are only for paid ‘members’ this app is trash and doesn’t help you date or even increase your self esteem. Also there have been many people in my batch over the two years I have had this that have been completely outside my specified preferences. I’ve had enough.
Distance
by 69islol on 2019/05/28 00:08
Everyone on here is to far away.
Strong
by Commuter16 on 2019/05/27 23:30
The League appears to have a better clientele than most which is awesome. The challenge is figuring out what you need to pay for to get access to the keys to the kingdom.
Not safe for women, long wait
by Leslie Driskill on 2019/05/27 17:30
I downloaded this app hoping it would have a better pool of singles- I’m in Oklahoma and the dating scene is pretty bad. I thought the whole snobby, “exclusive” vibe might not attract the personality traits I prefer, but the idea of people who were reviewed to not be fake profiles, not be creepy AF, and who would probably have a similar level of work responsibilities, education, and ability to travel sounded appealing. Is it actually like that? I don’t know. Never made it that far. Signing up requires a waiting period for someone to “review” your profile, unless you’re willing to pay for an upgrade before seeing the app’s features. The review process is just a glorified sales pitch for the premium membership. Other options to move up on the waitlist include linking your LinkedIn or Facebook. I’d be fine with that, except workplace and job title are visible on your profile by default. You can’t remove it at all until you’re accepted and pay the fee to upgrade. Sure, let’s put where I work so some nutjob can google me and show up at my office after I turn him down. Seems safe. Clearly no women were consulted on this. The app requires race/ethnicity/origin to be entered so people can filter their results by race/ethnicity/origin. Yes, the app allows you to discriminate your match results by race. There’s several different origin options for people who aren’t white- Asian, Native, Latinx, etc, but the only white option is “Caucasian”. No German, Irish, etc. To top it off, the app goes on and on about how “exclusive” it is, but on one of the forums a member was complaining about not being able to afford some in app purchase of around $49, specifically stating he would not be paid for two more weeks and didn’t want to wait. Paying $49 for anything in an app is probably a waste of money and I don’t think this member is any less suitable of a mate because of their financial situation, but as much as the app brags about being “exclusive” with “successful” professionals, I have doubts about how accurate their claim is if anyone who is in can’t afford $49. I deleted the app after a few days of being on the waitlist and changed my pics to multi level marketing ads in hopes they will delete my profile.
Bummer :( Could be so good!
by nodaybuttoday22 on 2019/05/26 22:17
It sure seemed like this would be better than most dating apps. Especially the clientele, but no go. It’s great to have a “concierge” but the responses are like a bot anyway, even if it is a real human. Automated responses. If you are a member (it’s NOT cheap) maybe you are having a better experience. Only difference instead of swiping left, you hit an X.
Nothing special to see here
by Lizardbrain90 on 2019/05/26 16:05
As a long-time user of other dating and apps, and someone who is looking for a real relationship, I am underwhelmed with The League. Most users haven’t written anything on their profile, and you get minimal information to make a swiping decision. I don’t care if you’re an “analyst at Goldman Sachs”; if you have low quality photos and can’t be bothered to write anything about yourself, you’re not that serious about dating. Over the course of a month, I matched with two guys - one turned out to have three kids in high school (that should be front and center on your profile, pal), and the other guy I canceled on because he shifted the time of our date about ten times in the same day. Not great. To top it off, after a couple of weeks of logging in religiously but not swiping right on anyone, I got a message from the app chastising me for being “too picky” and taking away my ability to see people for several days. What the hell?? Don’t you specifically *want* to attract users who are selective? When I researched out to my “concierge,” as the message suggested I do if I found it in error, I heard nothing back. Use this as a toolkit in your dating toolbox if you so choose, but don’t go in with heightened expectations.
Fake reviews!! It’s a FRAUDULENT SCAM - they will rob you
by LondonBizOwner on 2019/05/26 00:28
They make you pay and make it impossible to cancel. There is no one on this app - all dead profiles. Schools attended are also not in any way impressive, but actually doesn’t matter because users do not exist. It’s a fraud.
Very unimpressed
by Debbierp on 2019/05/26 00:02
This is a purely unimpressive app. I’m not sure why anyone would pay extra money to be a paid member when the free version is as awful as it is. I’ve gone on a few dates from it but I’m not impressed, it’s laughable that they ask you to put preferences as most of the matches are never within those preferences. I’ll keep it because it only takes a few minutes out of my life but I would never recommend someone to do it if that was their only option
They keep sending matches for NYC. I live outside DC
by Ojacio on 2019/05/24 22:45
Not enough matches to provide anyone I’d be interested in, or who are my age or who live in the area I live in (DC). On the rare occasion they do, I already know them, or have seen them on another dating app. Lots of messages from the concierge guy to buy more services. Could be a great platform if it worked, but so far unimpressed.
Scam - Dont waist your time
by Papi julio on 2019/05/23 16:05
This app is a scam. Here is what happens. You sign up and get put on a waitlist before you can become "active". The waitlist is some large arbitrary number like "you're number 16,415!". Then they notify you and email you constantly saying that other people are now ahead of you in line because they paid for a membership, which they then ask you to pay for a membership too. Paying for a membership doesn't even get you "in", it just bumps you up a little higher on their fake waitlist. This is a scam. Go use Hinge.
Mismatch: emoji marina man
by Tiburon mom on 2019/05/21 04:22
I couldn’t take the daily emails from the Millennial “concierge” - based in the Marina no less - who was speaking an entirely different language. I am “over 40” and live in Marin but the app decided I should receive regular emoji-filled messages from some single thirty-something who brags about his travels and offers tips on dating. I signed up to meet a significant other - for this I could go to the Marina Blvd Safeway.
Great concept, poor execution
by ffisherb on 2019/05/20 21:19
The League started out well, but now anyone can buy their way off the waitlist, and the app has loads of problems - no prospects at 5pm - just a message asking you “try back later”, delayed messaging - I’m currently trying to respond to someone and “my message can’t be sent at this time”, the Concierge no longer responds quickly, the people are the same on Hinge or Bumble. Not really worth the $$ for such a bad UX. Would love to see them invest some of the money back into better development.
*** DO NOT PURCHASE ***
by Daya-fast8-working on 2019/05/20 20:10
I find the whole set up tricks you into a monthly rate with cancel anytime / trial and then charge you a full year over $300. I found the app cumbersome, not intuitive, dull, lacking of choices and responses. I am highly disappointed
Ridiculous
by albus1992 on 2019/05/19 02:00
The fees to upgrade the service are absolutely ridiculous and the free version is pathetic. Gives you the chance to match with only 3 people a day. When you don’t get matches for a week they send you a message insinuating you are being too picky, even though being picky and choosing the right person is what the app advertises as their strength and difference maker. The few matches I have had all came back with no responses as well.
So so
by brittanj on 2019/05/18 15:28
I don’t think it’s a scam but I don’t think there are a ton of people on this. I have never met anyone off of it, have been active over a month. I have barely matched with anyone. You get 5 profiles to see a day. I accidentally paid for a year because it tries to elude to the fact that you will pay whatever low price monthly it is and then be able to “cancel anytime”. $380 later yes I can cancel after my 1 year I already paid for up front for. The say “prestigious” and successful people only. I have seen people that work at dollar general and as bar staff (more power to ya) but call it what it is. Would not buy again at this point.
Inefficient app
by POnewyork on 2019/05/18 05:03
Not sure how the League works. It feels that it is sub-optimal I’m allowing to make connections. In addition the interface is clumsy. Good concept though

I’ve been on the waitlist for about two years...I don’t think I’ll ever be approved. Back to tinder I go.
One of the best
by paul smitheery on 2019/05/17 04:48
Definitely, one of the higher quality sites to connect with real people! J.Manville
Very expensive and few options
by ecw214 on 2019/05/17 03:38
I ran out of suggestions in my area within a week. So they started broadening my suggestions to areas 4 hours away, etc. when I contacted them they said it’s a small candidate pool in my age range (40s) and they would not refund my money. Worst $200 ever spent.
Unbelievably disappointed
by LekkerKos on 2019/05/17 00:25
For an annual paid subscription what a gigantic waste of time and money- I can kick myself for thinking that I would find someone and go on one date. As much as Tinder online dating has a reputation for being a hook up site - my experience with Tinder was a gazillion times better than the league. I met and dated intelligent, attractive and interesting men on Tinder which is a lot more than I can say about my non existent dates using the League app. My experience with the League is just plain awful - the matches were horrendous, the ones I chose to initiate a conversation with fell off the face of the earth with no response and need I say more. My membership ends in July but in fact it ended when it began - Too bad I paid for the nonsense, so I can only blame myself!
Do not pay for a memebership
by App reviewer 2017 on 2019/05/14 12:26
I read positive reviews but I think they were paid. I’ve been on the “waitlist” over 9 days (states less than 24 hours) and my “que” is the exact same. It’s a scam. I was looking for a legit site for serious people but this is not it. They just want your money and customer service is beyond poor. Don’t waste your time. If I could give a zero I would.
Different than the rest
by skithing on 2019/05/12 17:02
Agree that this site is not a hook up site, a relief to those of us that remember when hooking up just meant going out for an activity with a girl or guy and no sexual connotation. I have been on the site for about a month, my one complaint thus far is that very few of the matches are remotely close to me, vast majority are over 2 hrs away. The other observation is that many of the chat rooms are dated threads from months ago. It would be great if The League initiated some chat on these sites and helped plan so activities and sent out blasts to members so we could meet socially in groups and did not have to plan it ourselves. I’m sure members would appreciate that and it would add value to the site.
Clearly not for users outside of a major city
by pg415 on 2019/05/12 08:30
5 matches a day.. Just doesn't seem enough for what I'm paying
Not worth the money
by JBB0377 on 2019/05/11 00:09
I became a member and paid for the service. There were only 10 potential matches within my geography before I was being sent guys who were hours away and not within the scope of what I was looking for. After inquiring with the concierge, I was informed that my preferences were too tight for their services to provide more matches. My advice is to not lower your standards based on a business model.
Great concept but very few men
by Valleygirllawyer on 2019/05/09 15:07
I am going to assume that this app is much better in major cities... but I'm outside of one and the matches are never good. I'm 6'1 the dudes are under 5'8" and live no where near me. I have many single friends and if you pay for the app then it's a whole different sori. You will have a bunch more matches I've been told.
I’m out $250
by Lifeinbeta on 2019/05/08 21:18
This app seemed different the rest. I had high hopes of meeting like minded professionals so I paid the hefty subscription. Despite my preference settings, my matches consist of men from other states and countries, 10-15 years out of my preferred age range and some days, I get no matches at all. I thought I was doing something wrong but the very nice support guy explained that they don’t have enough people my age (50) to match me with and it’s just not an ideal app for my demographic. Ok fair enough. So refund my money and I’ll be on my way. Except they don’t. So make sure you are “of the demographic” (whatever that is, they don’t say anything about this up front) before you pay for this app. And don’t expect a lot in return.
Expensive and Elitist
by Kenzie5280 on 2019/05/08 19:36
In my frustration of dating circa 2019 I Googled, “best dating apps for serious prospects” and came across The League. The app’s overall layout is similar to Hinge in that you upload six photos and fill out some basic preferences and bio all while hoping you’re going to have a shot at meeting someone with similar goals/expectations. Unfortunately, once in the app you are bombarded with expensive options that you either pay upfront for or are forced to deal with being number 22,000 on a waitlist. Am not going to spend $199 to $400 for an app I’m unable to trial-run or experience beforehand....
LinkedIn Account
by MTT6089 on 2019/05/08 17:04
I don’t think it is extremely wrong that you don’t get accepted if you don’t have a LinkedIn account. There are many businesses reasons why you can’t have one. That isn’t a way hard working people should be judged!!!
It’s not all that
by msSpellman on 2019/05/08 02:02
They are desperately trying to seem “exclusive” same old same old 🤦🏾‍♀️
Don’t waste your time
by lacutep on 2019/05/07 15:38
This app prides itself on being exclusive but it’s just like any other app. Most of the guys on here you can find on bumble. There’s both white collar and blue collar workers. Hardly diverse in terms of ethnic backgrounds (even the league team isn’t diverse, idk if they even know what the word really means) so expect to get majority of your batches looking the same. I’m assuming the app just doesn’t have the interest from different backgrounds or the staff doesn’t know how to gauge their interest. I live in a major city FYI. Looking at their staff, I’m not at all surprised. They should try to market this to upper class people, especially to upper class minorities to get them to join but they probably don’t care or even know how. On top of this, their algorithm is a joke. I feel like you have more control on getting who you actually want off of other apps. Also, they show new batches at 5pm which means a ton of people are on causing the app to slow down. After 30 minutes I still had issues connecting. Even tried their “troubleshooting” tips but my connection isn’t the problem, it’s the amount of users they have on at time same time. Be careful if you purchase tickets to see more batches. There have been instances where they took my tickets and didn’t show me new matches... basically taking my money. Don’t even bother spending any money on this app. Do not be fooled. The league is trash.
Scam
by ninjakatbax on 2019/05/07 14:15
The workflow of the app is to constantly juice you for more money. They do not have the clientele to charge these fees. I live in Dallas and has minimal local options. The app is buggy and will throw errors often.
Do you have time to wait?
by That South African Chick on 2019/05/07 02:01
If you’re willing to be number 134.789 and move up a number each day in the line without signing up as a member then go ahead and use this app.
Ineffective money trap
by jc333$ on 2019/05/06 17:35
As someone who has been single for a few years now, I have tried the gamut of dating apps and this one is hands down the least effective. I understand the concept of the waiting list... you need to PAY to use this app properly. I’m fine with that, I’m happy to pay money for a service that works! However, now that I have paid $300 for a subscription, I realize I have completely wasted my money. The algorithm is supposed to bring you “quality” matches, yet the preference settings are wildly generic. For the 5 matches I get a day, none of them are remotely my type let alone attractive to me. In the 5 months of being on this app, I have only matched with about 5 people (and one of them is a friend and we laughed about it how bad this app is). I haven’t gone on a single date- messages with matches either never happen or if I message first it’s crickets. I think this is because people are not actually using this app once they tire of logging in to see 5 uninteresting matches per day. When I first joined, I would log in every day, check matches and hope for something interesting. After a while got bored and started “hearting” people I’m not interested in just to see if there’s a match. Also, noticed that I’m seeing repeats of the same people I’ve “x-ed” already in my new batches. Once you purchase a subscription to the app, you basically have to purchase “tickets” to facilitate talking to your prospective matches by getting yourself into their batch quicker. As if $300 wasn’t enough. For the record, I’m a successful professional and I’m not hideous. I get lots of action on other apps, but had high hopes for an app that claims to be a service for “successful relationship reminded professionals”. Quality over quantity? More like forced scarcity to encourage you to pay more money. Save your money until someone else does this idea better. Until then I’ll just be meeting new people through Tinder.
Worst ever
by cutemingfd on 2019/05/05 16:06
No one lives in my city The ones they send me are worse than the ones on Tinder etc I paid $200 Refund!
Disappointing if you live in philly area
by 123 DM on 2019/04/30 23:28
I live outside Philadelphia. There are VERY few matches for 40 year olds on the league in the Philadelphia area. The VAST majority of possible matches sent to me live in New York. Looks like this would be great if you lived in NY.
Just use Tinder
by Mastamarc on 2019/04/30 12:07
Set preference and the app doesn’t show you potentials that meet those preferences. You get maybe 3 folks to swipe on per day with no ability to undo if you accidentally swipe the wrong way. I met 1 person—we hit it off. But the same person was on tinder. Lol. Larger selection of folks to chose from.
Where’s the product development?
by TimeisNow2019 on 2019/04/29 21:37
I tried The League 2 years ago for a period of time and am on it again. There is seemingly little product development in that period of time to make it easier to meet people in real life. That’s the goal, everything else prior to that point is a giant waste of time. The League has 2 major deficiencies in that regard: 1. Not collecting enough user info to match users based on shared interests 2. Not limiting matches to a specific number. Limit users to 5 matches and stop their daily feed at that point. This eliminates the ‘grass is greener’ effect and makes them more serious/focused about who they match with, which should lead to more messaging and ultimately meets. They can expire matches to get their feed started again, but each expire will hurt their league score. Anything to get the match-to-meet ratio higher for their members. That ratio is very low for me, my friends and a lot of other members based on the reviews. Again League Product dev team: It’s all a giant waste of time if meets don’t happen and free time is something your targeted user base doesn’t have much of to begin with.
The worst dating app I've ever tried
by atomicpunk927 on 2019/04/28 01:00
After four months I've had three matches, two of whom, we're flaky, in that no conversation occurred. The third, who would talk, said she was an anarchist. They have such a small pool in Atlanta that they send me matches from Indiana, Louisiana, Florida, North Carolina, etc. I rarely get anything local. Even more rare is someone attractive to see. Steer clear of this app because you can't get your money back.
Waste of time and money
by JJenniferFl on 2019/04/26 22:16
After hearing about the concept of the League, I was excited to try it. The idea of a dating app that had a screening process and a better algorithm was promising. So I applied and was put on a long waiting list (more than 25,000) others for the Boston area. After about a month of micro movements up the list, I decided to pay the fee to join. For the first three days, I received matches from the Greater Boston area. After that, they were all from New York! When I inquired why, they said that there weren’t matches that matched my criteria in my area! What? You have a waiting list of 25k+ and you exhausted my criteria for the Boston market in three days? They suggested changing my criteria to a greater distance, lower height, or higher age for my matches. FYI, I requested men who were between five years younger and six years older than me, I requested 5’11” or taller because I am tall, and a 40 mile radius because I actually want to spend time with the person I meet. Needless to say, I am extremely disappointed with this app and company.
App has a bug

Must be a scam for data
by Kris24Morris on 2019/04/26 01:13
They never let you into the dating app unless you pay for a membership, site unseen.
Scam in the Chicago Market
by Mindola on 2019/04/25 22:12
Sold as the dating app that’s so popular and so exclusive, its got a waiting list. NOT TRUE! FALSE ADVERTISING! OVER PROMISE SEVERLY UNDER DELIVER! They did not even have enough men in the Chicago market to pitch me 5 guys a day. When I inquired, I was told that the Chicago market was underdeveloped and to broaden my search criteria. Even after broadening the age range and geographical distance, I was still pitched guys from Toronto, Minneapolis, Ohio and other geographically undesirable locations outside of my preferences. When I asked for a refund, I was told The League doesn’t give refunds, despite them admitting the Chicago market is underdeveloped, and I could request a refund from Apple. When I went to Apple, I was told, “No.” Do not waste the money on this app. It’s a total joke and The League should be ashamed for how they do business.
Garbage
by 1800-inurbooty on 2019/04/25 20:18
Total garbage. Absolute garbage. I repeat... This app is garbage! Don't bother replying! And yes... You may call me "1800inyourbooty" total disrespect there but I can take it. Clowns.
Disappointed with lack of detail
by KKenLaCasa on 2019/04/25 05:55
While The League offers up fewer matches that are higher quality, what it doesn’t give is enough space to learn much about the people you are shown. Yes, you can see gainful employment, yet there is nothing that tells me much about them intrinsically. The groups listing is a nice feature, but it merely shows that we both may like beer and dogs. I need to see more self-submitted info about WHO the person is and what they want to truly make this more than a hit or miss dating app based on rather shallow data values.
Ridiculous
by alexx_628 on 2019/04/24 02:30
I joined this app back in December, waiting to get off the waitlist. Within the last 4 months, I’ve only moved up about 2,000 out of 100,000+. The wait is ridiculous, and so are the prices for something that I’m not even guaranteed whether I’ll be able to use once I pay for it. It’s too bad because the advertising of the app seemed great at first.
Not free
by troubledallas on 2019/04/23 20:09
Basically you have to pay. They have a waitlist but me and a friend are the same number on the waitlist. My number hasn’t hardly moved in two weeks. So at this rate I can have a profile in about 5 years.
Underwhelming
by Waldooooo0oo on 2019/04/23 19:54
Long delay to get accepted. 4 people a day. All old and little compatibility. Hinge is much better
Professional Way Of Dating
by BBCtvbz on 2019/04/23 05:23
You couldn’t ask for any better dating app, it’s a bang for your buck; I’d prefer getting the “owner” subscription package, you’ll fall in love with the algorithm & how it adapts to your likes & dislikes! Best dating app hands down, no creeps, real peeps & all professionals.
Disappointing
by Drkillr on 2019/04/20 21:21
My review keeps getting blocked/not posted, probably because its too long. So this one will be brief. 6 months, 200 dollars, 2 matches, 0 dates. Those are numbers that cannot justify any amount of time or energy spent on this app. The League tries to keep its pool of potentials small and “exclusive” but all that means is once you run out of people in your preferences, you’re screwed. Because the only response from League is “widen your preferences!” Preferences are there for a reason; do you really think people set filters on who they want to date just for fun? Extremely disappointing experience with this app, will never be coming back.
Buggy
by NashvilleNicole on 2019/04/20 06:24
While trying to fill out a profile, the interests section keeps freezing or is uneditable once you hit save. It’s so aggravating that I am giving up filling it out for now and waiting submit my profile hoping it will rectify itself somehow. I’ve also tried reordering my photos but that, too, keeps freezing. I’ve checked WiFi and signals but now it’s been hours, which is discouraging. Please fix and update as this initial experience is so cumbersome I’m about to give up on the process (very unlike me), but it’s the opposite of efficient.
False advertising
by 9363(2)493026 on 2019/04/18 21:38
I would give it 0 stars if I could. All the options are factory workers, truck drivers and servers. Most pictures are of sports, scenery or are inappropriate. They don’t “vet” anyone. They will let anyone join that pays. I have way better matches on all other apps. What a COMPLETE waste of $. Stick with hinge, the maybe 5 not terrible guys I saw on here were already on my hinge weeks- months before. Such a SCAM!
Glitches Galore
by houston legal on 2019/04/17 14:01
If you want to see who likes you, you have to buy a batch. Well, I bought two batches and never got to see that tab. The last batch I bought didn’t even load into my queue. Concierge never responded to my lament. So no tickets, and no gain. Nice idea. Follow through shaky.
Terrible, scammy.
by Drethelin on 2019/04/17 04:09
If you’re someone with more money than sense, you can try this app. It shows you people no better than tinder or okcupid, but with less information. It shows you 5 matches a day, and charges you to look at more people. The app is also unreliable and glitchy and often things won’t load if you click on them. On the third day of having this app, it showed me no one new, even if I used the “tickets” they charge you to see more people. It has a ton of extra “features” it tried to charge you money for and constantly lists the “value” they are in dollars, but they’re worthless if they don’t do anything. The only benefit over a standard dating app is their filtering system does at least seem to keep out spam. One thing you’ll notice is most of the good reviews have only recently gotten the app and even though they say it looks good they haven’t actually gotten anything out of it. I shelled out money for this thing so you don’t have to.
Complete scam...
by gjftsyt on 2019/04/16 23:01
Gave it one star to be able to review... it’s a COMPLETE scam. Met no one, matches are over seas, just a joke. As an example, on other sites I’ll match with 15 to 20 people a month. This thing can’t even send me five matches a day including they are almost all 1200 miles to overseas away. A joke.
WASTE of money. Total scam.
by Private1! on 2019/04/16 22:54
Do not waste your money. The app isn’t fully developed in my area. They do not tell you that and offer zero refunds. They do not take anything into account when reviewing profiles. It is no different than any other app other than It cost last way too much money and offers even less opportunity.
Pay to play
by Ss637 on 2019/04/16 21:28
Even though my settings are wide open, I never get any matches. You definitely have to pay to beat their algorithms here
Basic Functions make this App pretty horrible
by JBabs13 on 2019/04/15 17:49
I’ll keep this simple, paid $350, app keeps showing me profiles from 200 miles away from me, max distance games on my profile is 50 miles. In fact my entire batch was from around 200 miles away from me yesterday and it’s probably been similar for previous batches but I started spot checking all of my profiles yesterday finally.
Member for over 1 year 0 dates
by pra jay on 2019/04/14 20:02
Thought this dating app experience was going to be different but the only unique factor is the waiting list. Took 30 days to be approved for free membership and so glad I opted not to pay. Matches are mostly fake profiles “oil refining engineer” who “is away at sea for months at a time” seems to be the prevalent dating profile. The few (under 5) matches who actually connected with me were essentially illiterate scammers with fake profiles and when I sent screen shots of convos to concierge, it took weeks for a response which was ultimately a cop out about how they can’t verify paid members profiles. Absolutely no advantage to using this waste of time app as opposed to bumble or match.
Elitist bulls*it app
by noappleno on 2019/04/14 03:24
Firstly there is no one month option despite their advertising. It starts at 3 months. And the price is steep, before you've even tried it I might add, to clear their elitist bullsh*t waitlist and see the McDonald's employee you've always dreamed of. I'd be up for it, if I knew it was worth it, but I don't. The reviews online are not particularly complementary either. So it's a nope for me. Try again with another sucker.
Has potential
by Fastlane042 on 2019/04/13 22:32
Every single time I open the app I am greeted with “our servers are poppin check back in a few minutes”. And it’s been like this for years. It’s laughable they can’t build in app in 2019 that’s fast
Disappointing
by rn4babies7 on 2019/04/13 15:34
My daily matches are never from my city. They are either in Manhattan or Virginia. There are plenty of successful singles in Philadelphia. I’ve changed my preferences to be more “inclusive” and less picky, have reset my city to Philadelphia numerous times, and still continue to get matches from outside my city radius.
Worst dating app ever

by Brandon WM on 2019/04/12 21:00
I can’t remember how many dates that I’ve had with people that I wish provided more information before hand, that probably cost me about $150(dinner, activity, etc) per. Luckily I didn’t have to pay for this app. However, if I did it would be totally worth it being that it is only $200 and I have spent almost that much just on one date. The quality of people that you match with on here is much high and more comparable with you because of the intricate preferences. Not to mention they have a concierge which is a real person who helps you match with people. Amazing.

Exceeding my expectations
by Docmom21 on 2018/05/03 17:12
I have read many reviews here stating this is a scam, that you never meet anyone, etc. and this is NOT at all true. What is true is that this isn’t your average dating app. This actually has been what is missing from the world of dating in the modern era, a site where the instant gratification society is lessened and a more meaningful match is sought. If you are looking for a hook up or a series of single dates, then this would not be a place that you would find your needs being met. If you are seeking someone of similar educational level, values, interests, and a more meaningful potential at a relationship then this is absolutely a great start. No, you will not see hundreds of matches, but you will see quality matches. The algorithm is quite impressive in pairing matches that I actually am interested in. I will see 3-5 people at a time and thus far, each one has been someone that I am interested to get to know better. If you are looking to swipe right (or left or whatever it is) and meet that night, then again, not for you. Not a hook up site. Thankfully, for those of us who have been uncomfortable on quick match dating sites, the League is here.
Nothing special to see here
by Lizardbrain90 on 2019/05/26 16:05
As a long-time user of other dating and apps, and someone who is looking for a real relationship, I am underwhelmed with The League. Most users haven’t written anything on their profile, and you get minimal information to make a swiping decision. I don’t care if you’re an “analyst at Goldman Sachs”; if you have low quality photos and can’t be bothered to write anything about yourself, you’re not that serious about dating. Over the course of a month, I matched with two guys - one turned out to have three kids in high school (that should be front and center on your profile, pal), and the other guy I canceled on because he shifted the time of our date about ten times in the same day. Not great. To top it off, after a couple of weeks of logging in religiously but not swiping right on anyone, I got a message from the app chastising me for being “too picky” and taking away my ability to see people for several days. What the hell?? Don’t you specifically *want* to attract users who are selective? When I researched out to my “concierge,” as the message suggested I do if I found it in error, I heard nothing back. Use this as a toolkit in your dating toolbox if you so choose, but don’t go in with heightened expectations.
Use other more popular dating apps/sites
by dlozano457 on 2018/06/28 13:54
I’ve used a lot of dating apps and this is actually the worst of them all I literally log in see some pics of people say yes or no and try again in 24 hours it’s getting tiresome. I’m not a “member” because I can’t afford to have a large subscription for 25 pictures of people I may not even like that’s basically what it is. If you want to try just for a month it will cost you a whopping $99 just for the month. If you have a membership as if you won’t ever be found by someone you can get a cheaper price but for the year it’s $250 which is actually ridiculous in terms of all other dating apps that I can actually TALK to people on. I have been a user since I turned 23 in March but this apps notifications don’t mean anything they are usually just the concierge to tell me nothing important spend money etc or just that I have been given 5 people to look at today. I will probably be leaving this app soon because nothing happens in the app but what fun was it to wait to get out of the waitlist to do absolutely nothing and even if you get through the “waitlist” you still aren’t a member you have to buy a membership or you are basically irrelevant to them.
Great concept, needs work.

I love the concept. It’s nice to meet professionals and well-educated individuals seeking someone who is also driven. Unfortunately, this app has yet to develop basic search criteria you’d find on almost any other dating app (political affiliation, whether one has/wants kids, if you drink, if you smoke, etc). To compound that problem of constantly getting suggestions for people with whom you would then want to un-match, the section to write a bio is ridiculously limited. And most members, I’ve found, don’t write anything. I’ve tried to suggest these changes to the concierge and nothing has come of it. I’m getting incredibly frustrated at having paid for a service that has led to no real potential matches. Because of this, the boosts you can purchase in-app prove useless. And I’ve tried them. I just want this app to improve so that everyone can get more out of it! It just makes sense that these added search criteria finally be added now that the app is more popular. Until this happens, I wouldn’t recommend it any longer to my large network of single friends and colleagues.
Great!

So far so good. I think I waited about 24 hours before getting drafted. Maybe it’s because I have some good LinkedIn contacts or maybe it’s because they thought I was pretty. Idk. I think the premise with this is that they’re assuming you’re a business professional with a well-rounded life and, as such, you don’t have time for endless, meaningless swipes and games (or in my case, heavily debating whether I should swipe right because the guy was medium cute but had a questionable job). Three people to consider per day, and then you can get back to your busy and fulfilling life while you wait for a match. Personally, I was extremely jaded after a handful of stints on Bumble (tinder was an absolute joke to me after a week). I even swore off app-dating for good. I heard this app casually mentioned on a podcast and I decided to try it on a whim because I figured there would be a crazy waiting period or I wouldn’t get picked at all. But honestly, this seems like a refreshing change to me.
WARNING: TONS of spam in my email and limited city availability
by Cassandra Veronica on 2018/07/26 02:09
After downloading this app and making an account, I have been receiving TONS of spam and malware emails, 26 in less than 24 hrs. I never received any junk or spam before signing up and haven’t signed up for anything, not even a single newsletter, for 4 months. Also, it is only available in a couple handfuls of cities, which isn’t disclosed until you already completed an account. You need a FB or a LinkedIn to sign up. I don’t have FB so I used LinkedIn and I’m worried what crap it could do to that. Disappointed, was hoping it was legit. SLC is not available. BEWARE DOWNLOADING Edit: Developer responded that The League is in SLC. While there is a sign up roster for The League, it is at less than 4,000 people, and 5,000 need to sign up before a city is actually active where you can meet people. Also regarding the spam... There is not a chance my info was supplied for spam by anyone else. The timing is not a coincidence and, like previously stated, I have not given my email to anyone in over 4 months. AND, if you want to not use your LinkedIn, to be a paid member is several hundred dollars. That is insane.
Not worth most people’s time
by Idontwantanicknameforreals on 2019/03/11 01:34
This app is designed terribly to make it less probable that you’ll find someone you like, for most people. They see how many people have liked you, and based on your perceived attractiveness, will show you only to people of a similar perceived attractiveness. Since you only get to see five people a day, and so does everyone else, they are literally dictating the limits on how attractive a person you can match with, for every single person in their app, with no way for you to do anything to change this With other apps, at least you can keep swiping or looking and see everyone. The league actually just says “no, these people are off limits to you”. It also doesn’t matter if you update your photos later. Your limits are set forever. This is like real life gattaca Also, the app is poorly built. They log you out randomly every few days. And they release new batches of people to see at 5pm every day, but don’t have the ability to handle the load of everyone using it at the same time, so it basically stops working at 5pm every day
Old Hinge with an Entitlement Complex
by JennW21 on 2018/09/19 03:20
I rejoined after a 2 year hiatus (not sure how long I lasted initially) and so far all I’ve seen is most of the same people I’ve already swiped left or right on from another app. I also feel way more pressure to interact for fear of being kicked off which is a bit anxiety inducing. I find myself saying yes to people I don’t really think are more interesting than they weren’t on Bumble, Hinge, CMB, etc.... Another fun addition is that preferences don’t seem to matter at all to whatever algorithm selects my whopping 3 matches a day, so why even ask what I’m looking for? Most dealbreakers aren’t even touched on or displayed. Do they have kids? Want kids? Divorced? Widowed? Smoke? Conservative? Moderate? Liberal? Almost all the free apps have those options. Not everyone chooses to display all of them, but the majority of people do because we all realize these are important things to most of us in the dating world. Bottom line, I’ll probably stick to getting carpal tunnel swiping left on an app with more potential matches and less elitist bs.
Huge waste of money in KCMO
by Julzz7777777 on 2019/06/16 00:11
This very expensive dating app obviously does not have enough participants from my area within my age range. I’ve been on this app 4 days. The first day I was able to view five potential matches from around my area. Days 2-4 I was only shown people from several states away that also did not fit my age, ethnicity or height preferences (like nowhere close). I should not have been charged over $250 if there weren’t an adequate number of participants in my city. I wanted to try this app because they claim to have higher quality, educated and successful participants. I would not have bothered if The League would’ve been transparent stating the only people they have to offer require air travel to meet. I’m a very attractive woman and am certain if there were enough participants from my area I would have zero difficulty making a connection. Perhaps this company should offer their free memberships in cities they where they are trying to become established instead of ripping people off. I asked for a refund but have yet to receive a response.
Just stick with tinder or bumble
by NatSaxk on 2018/11/14 02:51
So I got this app because I was sick of the “f boys” on tinder and bumble. Well once a day I have 3-5 guys pop up on my profile, none of them are the kind of guys “I’m in to”, I don’t find them attractive and still haven’t gotten any matches where on other apps I’m getting several. It’s just not worth the time of day with this app. I understand the angle where it is focusing more on Relationship as opposed to hook ups but how are you suppose to find the relationship aspect when you can only choose between 3 guys a day (keep in mind I don’t find them attractive)... in addition to that they also run the angle of “exclusive” meaning you have to be a professional to get on this app yet I’m seeing guys who work at 5 and Below or are Pet groomers at petsmart. That’s not exactly what I think of when I see “exclusive”. Now you may think I’m upset because I haven’t had a match and haven’t explored the idea that I’m ugly. But the truth is I’m average and actually do pretty well on other apps. Which is why I'm telling you to stick with those apps.
Impressed!
by leaguelove! on 2019/06/16 20:10
I’m pretty new to the app but enjoying it so far. I see some complaints that it is a money scam... Although more features would open up to me if I did pay, i am currently getting good use out of the app as an unpaid guest. Most guys that I am matched with are cute and have a good education and job like myself. Much better than what you find on other dating apps. I see people complaining that the matching process is too slow.. It took me 6 days to get my first match. I think that’s great! I would expect the process to be slower. You’re not on tinder swiping right on 20 people a day.. so you get less matches. But the trade off is that the matches are quality. Keep up the good work!! Update: I met my current boyfriend on this app! I am so thankful for this app. It did a phenomenal job of matching the two of us up ❤️
Works, but can take some time
by keithdbrooks on 2018/07/03 18:31
Speaking as a queer, male-identified person in NYC and from my experience. Operationally, I have not had any issues. I like that age, some physical attributes, location, work and education are required as part of someone’s profile. The app is pretty easy to use, the interface is sleek and the Concierge seems to be quite responsive when there are issues. I wish there were a way to turn off notifications from them, however. As for outcomes, I’ve been using this for about a year, and it took several months before I could be approved to use the app. I seem to only match with people once a month or couple of months, and usually I initiate the conversations, but seldom hear back from other matches and sometimes they expire. I would say the quality of matches is fine, but I tend to find the same ones on Tinder, and they are prone to being more responsive there.
Fraudulent membership fees
by TAS51 on 2019/04/05 21:08
I downloaded the app and signed up for an annual membership back in February 2019- at the time they advertised 5 tickets / month as included with the Member status. I purchased the annual membership believing the tickets would be valuable to access premium features of the app. Nearly a 1.5 months later and no tickets issued per month. I contacted the League and now they claim those 5 tickets are only issued once per year...this company is fraudulent- do not give them a dime. Without the tickets- which of course they offer for additional purchase within the app- the dating service fails to provide any value over the free dating apps out there. I read the developer response below, and I’m not surprised they’re lying. I literally have screenshots of their promotional material at the time of entering into the membership- which clearly stated 5/tickets per MONTH. If it hadn’t been so clearly fraudulent, why did Apple immediately refund the annual charge in full?!? This company is a scam, and Apple needs to bar it from the marketplace!
Bad matches and ads!
by Jvancour on 2018/07/11 22:02
I was so disappointed with this app. I thought it would be a place to find someone with similar ambition, education levels, etc. That wasn’t the case. First of all, the whole waiting list thing seemed really arbitrary, as there were people let in with really bad profiles. So I waited about a week to get in and since then it’s been about 4 months. In that span of time I only had 2 matches, both of which ended up not being to my standards. On similar dating platforms, where you only have a small batch every day, I’ve gotten great matches in the same amount of time. The second reason I gave this such a low rating is because they have ads! It’s normal for dating apps to have ads for their premium services (of which the league does doubly as more than others), but the league also had ads for Netflix and today they had one for 7-11. So when that happened, that was the last straw for me. I was so excited about this app and it was so disappointing. Not worth the time!
Scam alert!
by humanpixel on 2018/04/03 00:23
This service is a scam. They will lure you in with some ”exclusive” imagery giving you the illusion that it's somehow worthwhile. It's not. A dating site that puts you in a queue just to join and be able to find matches has only one objective. Money. They will continuously increment your spot in the queue claiming that paid members are a higher priority and thus it will take longer to review your profile. BS! They're merely trying to create a strong desire for you to purchase a membership at $100 per month! They'll make you wait weeks, months, or years unless you're willing to fork over the cash. Even then, there's such a low number of matches available, the chances of you finding a decent match are slim to none! You'll get way better results on any number of other apps tomorrow, rather than next year. This is a terrible business model for the consumer. It is not designed to help you find a match. It's designed to make them lots of money. You'd have to be very gullible to fall for this scam.
Tech glitch, calculated my match rate is lower than 0.3%
by Likehotwire on 2019/02/10 23:53
Unless if you are a girl desperate for some hedge fund, elitist dudes, this is not the right app for you. I am stupid this app is based on elitism that I dont believe in but I realized I cant cancel my membership, too late...I think there is some glitch that I got matched with 0 people for almost 3 months even I swiped yes everybody everyday. I am an attractive professional and have had successful high quality dates on OKC and Bumble. I felt so weird so I emailed their support because I dont believe that for the 90 day period, for the 450 people that matched to me, I am not matchable to any of them. You know what, after I wrote my email, the customer service got back to me like bla bla bla and I started to get some matches regularly. If I did not email them, I would have paid $300 and got matched with 0 people for 12 months, that means, I am unmatchable for 5* 365 men, my rate of being matched would be 0.005%, that’s way lower than getting admitted to both Stanford and Harvard at the same time.
Lack of communication
by macbook pro UT yr 2 on 2019/06/05 10:24
I have to say I’m disappointed by this app. I feel like I’m right i the group this app is targeting and it’s even impossible to get them to answer a question about becoming a subscriber. I’ve been on their waitlist for a while and decided I really did want to start dating seriously so I reached out to their ‘Concierge’ over a week ago with questions about membership and the differences between the different plans and have been totally ignored. I completely understand that they want to prioritize their current subscribers when responding to messages but over a week is unacceptable especially when someone is trying to pay you. Either this nameless 36 year old concierge is just flat out terrible, mostly a bot or they just don’t care about earning or keeping paying clients. I don’t think right now it would be easy to convince me to subscribe since there has literally been NO response to either of my two inquiry’s in the last 8 days.
Seems worth it!
by MiniJazMarie on 2018/07/26 23:22
Heard about this app from a single, successful male friend of mine. Was interested and applied. It’s pretty easy, and I was placed on the wait list. I was in the que for a few days. I did refer some friends, which helped me jump quite a bit in the que. It took me about 2 days to get in. I asked the concierge questions on how to improve my profile, and he helped quite a bit! I like that it’s more exclusive. You won’t necessarily get matched right away and it make take some time, and you have less options, but I like the options I’ve had so far. They also have groups and events you can join, which is unique. I’ll see whether or not I want to upgrade at this moment, but so far I’m happy with the basic version.
Inaccurate Marketing
by prttypnt20 on 2018/01/13 18:10
I had this app on my phone for almost two years before I was accepted into “The League.” They claim that you will get better responses here than with other sites, and that seems to be a complete falsehood. Though I occasionally do match with people, I’m finding that they are worse about replying. MOST of the people I match with NEVER responded to our match and my subsequent questions. While this could be my fault (I don’t proclaim to be the most interesting conversationalist), the advice from the concierge is to do exactly what I was doing. Honestly, it seems like their goal is to get information about people for as long as possible. Some people seem to be having luck, but if I’m not getting replies from the 10 people I matched with, that means there are others with similar situations. Additionally, they have these ridiculous chat rooms that make better sense for Reddit. I have serious doubts about the validity behind how this app is marketing itself.
Privacy Concerns
by The maxx12 on 2019/06/10 17:08
I got halfway through setting up my profile but couldn’t finish because I did not list my profession or education. The app states that you have to link your Linkedn to pull the information. In my opinion, this is reckless. It makes you accessible to anyone and it’s not like there are background checks on the users. So, you would have your name and places of employment for anyone one to stalk or use for identity theft. And an app with what claims to be more prestigious one might assume that the members have high paying jobs, thus great targets for fraud. I do not have Linkedin or Facebook for these reasons. Apart from the idiocy of the social justice warriors, it’s a waste of time. I got spammed like crazy on Linkedin. Anyway, I opted to pay the $ to keep my info private and was unable to process it. I keep getting these notices that there’s a waiting list and that’s why. It might be great for ambitiously naive people, but not for anyone who values their privacy.
Mediocre
by Liciapru on 2018/08/10 06:01
You get few matches and there’s seems to be little momentum after you do match with anybody. It’s really weird. Also, the app doesn’t remind you that have potential matches so it’s easy to forget to use it at all. Note BACK to the editor- no one is disputing that we only get only sparse matches. You’re incorrect that because the matches are so sparse, that they are ‘’ore special/meaningful, etc. and lead to more interaction. The empirical feedback in the theses reviews suggests the opposite and is what I said...there’s no momentum after a match. It could be because there’s so little useful information in a persons profile to use as fodder. Most people have one line about themselves/ others don't even bother. This app does not work well. The majority of the reviews are negative. I’ve been on it for over a year, and haven’t had one date. Meanwhile, I get asked out on Hinge all the time.
Pleasantly surprised
by trio_jeepy on 2018/09/13 19:15
I have been pleasantly surprised by the app so far, primarily by the fact that I've actually matched and met people on it. This might not seem like much but on other apps I've been miserably unsuccessful, for any number of reasons. Maybe it's an anomaly or maybe people feel a little safer on this because of the basic prescreening. That doesn't mean you won't get the occasional profile that has no actual pictures of the person, but I guess everyone gets a mulligan. In any case, it's pretty much the professional class, so if that's not your bag, then this probably isn't the place for you. Otherwise you may find that it saves a bit of time and brain damage vs other apps.
Not what it claims to be
by Annalovessonic on 2018/12/27 23:50
When the league announced it was launching in my area in October, I signed up thinking it would be an “elite” dating app to find other professionals close to my age. It was promising at first because it highly recommended using LinkdIn to join and boost your score (and odds of approval to join). The process to join really made it seem like they had someone working to filter out people, but unfortunately that’s not the case. At first I had too small of a batch and my concierge suggested lowering my preferences because I set it to selective. According to him, selective meant prestigious schools for education background and not what my interpretation of selective meant (beyond a bachelor’s degree). While I now have at the maximum 3 people in my daily batch, they are all unimpressive. Many have no college education and still work in fast food...and they are older than me. I really doubt paying to become a premium member would change any of this.
I don’t know yet
by Newyorkknight on 2018/10/22 16:48
So reading the review above me, that sounds pretty bad. Though I never check my emails anyway so it really wouldn’t bother me of getting spam emails I get them all the time most likely I think I have hundreds of thousands of emails that I never deleted. I didn’t like so much that I signed on with Facebook only to then be made to also give my linkin as well lol. A good line for someone that would care. “So you don’t get matched with your boss” tho I would love to get matched with my boss. Lol so give it up or pay for it. Now in the apps waiting area (says I can talk to other while waiting) yet there is no way to communicate with each other. Plus it has me connected to NY while I’m not in NY. I figure I’m just going to let this ride and see where this goes. I mean I already gave up a good amount of information of myself that has already been sold to marketers and all that crap. I already paid in some way.
Even AFTER you get in
by shortandsweetsarah on 2018/08/27 03:49
Even AFTER you get in, you still could spend an eternity waiting to see profiles of people who match your preferences because of the “ticket” system. At first I was being matched with men fitting my preferences. But let’s say a man has broader criteria, and therefore you show up in his queue. He can spend “tickets” which buy him a place in your next round of matches. So now all the men I see each day - I may fit their preferences but they do t fit mine. They are way too young and/or live too far away and don’t meet my ethnicity preferences - because those me paid to take the place of men who do. Having said that, after being active in the leave for 3 months, I did meet up with three very nice men in the span of 4 weeks. I was still scouting, but now I’m taking a break because of the problem outlined at the start of this review.
Sorta odd
by Smiles213 on 2018/06/14 05:57
The League’s concept is good- three prospects a day who look like they are professionals with good or almost good character. They provide multiple group chats where people can arrange meetups or get to know each other. Great! Having a concierge for questions is also a significant feature that makes this app different from others. Nice competitive move! My issue is that I’ve been on the app since late 2017 and I only matched with two people, which seems bizarre to me. I’m not a member and maybe that’s the reason I may not become visible to a lot of ppl. I communicated with my concierge and although he was nice, his feedback didn’t help me. After contemplation, I decided to deactivate my acct. because I started to feel like it was a waste of my time. Again, I find it crazy to only match with two ppl in over six/eight months. Thanks, but no thanks.
A DATA SCAM - zero stars - DO NOT PASS GO
by HeyItsMeNotTaken on 2018/06/03 02:22
Was stoked in this being a woman founded thing and loved the concept - quality, not quality. But it makes you sign into all kinds of (and multiple, which I found off putting and wish I'd treated as a red flag) to just get started. Then you wait with this inactive app on your phone for ages. When you read the "waitlist thread"/message thread you find out most people have been there for months if not years. One friend who did end up paying for $100/mo service out of frustration from waiting said he was VERY disappointed. Safe your time, protect your data and privacy, and just go strike up a convo with that cute whomever on your next flight, trip to the coffee shop, or walking your dog. You want a relationship? You want to meet people? Go meet them and talk like you/they are a human. Saves time, money, and spruces up those interpersonal skills. I'm done with apps.
Great Concept. Poor execution.
by Ucycfyuivi on 2019/06/16 23:26
I got accepted into the League within 24 hours and at first I really enjoyed it. Until I realized all of the ideal matches were likely fake accounts as they never spoke to me. Shortly after my matches got progressively worse. I realize physical attraction is subjective but I was expecting good looking professionals that like myself were too busy with work and personal goals to spend a lot of time in the dating scene. What I found was 3 matches a day of overweight, unattractive men. There’s no point in claiming to be an elite app if you’re not. A real human being needs to scan through the accounts before approving them and make sure the candidates would at least be attractive on a general scale. It’s clear that the majority of my matches are people who paid to bypass the waitlist which takes away all credibility from the app.
Totally worth the wait or fee.
by Brandon WM on 2019/04/12 21:00
I can’t remember how many dates that I’ve had with people that I wish provided more information before hand, that probably cost me about $150(dinner, activity, etc) per. Luckily I didn’t have to pay for this app. However, if I did it would be totally worth it being that it is only $200 and I have spent almost that much just on one date. The quality of people that you match with on here is much high and more comparable with you because of the intricate preferences. Not to mention they have a concierge which is a real person who helps you match with people. Amazing.
Why tell them what you’re looking for?
by Mari AB. on 2019/03/23 01:16
Why tell them what you’re looking for if instead the app offers you a completely different range of matches anyway??? (*scratching my head*) You specifically say your preference is for Jewish, instead all your potential matches are Christians and/or Muslims. You put your preference as 5”11 height and above, and get guys that are 5”5. You live in the East Coast, and all of sudden have matches that live in Downtown London, for God’s sake! This only proves they have not enough matches to offer because nobody joins this app. I have joined quite a while ago because I’m exhausted of the hook up culture, and this app has not being able bring one good match to the table. The fact that you have to pay to get “your card in front of the others” only makes it worse. Not worth spending your previous time waiting for 5pm cause nothing good comes on those batches.
Poor execution, buggy, fails on basic level
by HelloWorldForMe on 2018/03/14 04:59
I signed up in 2014 and was really excited to go through the waitlist. I was stuck in this list for a couple years and stopped checking after a while. When I went to use the app this year I was told that I was banned for being flaky and not responding to potential matches. This is tough to reconcile because I never received any notifications for getting to the top of the waitlist. I never even swiped any matches or used the application other than to check my spot in line. Nonetheless, I reached out to the concierge to express what had happened. About a month later I received a response re-iterating that I have been kicked off and I may be “drafted” in the future at the discretion of the company. I’m thankful that I received a response at all, that is really cool. However, I explained to the concierge that I did not even receive the notification for the message that she sent me and the app is unresponsive when manually trying to turn on notifications. 🤷🏻‍♂️ I hope the app works for other people, but it has been nothing but an unresponsive waitlist for me. The application failed on the basic level of being a place to meet other people for me, and I hope developers will take that into account with future versions.
Be ready to pay! Data mining site
by Dudeudrhsjdhdjdjsshs on 2018/01/08 17:13
Don't get this app unless you are ready to pay! I downloaded it, they ask for way more info and social media access than other apps (data mining much!), so I was skeptical. Anyway, gave them access to my FB and LinkedIn, then when I look at my profile my entire employment history, with the companies I worked for and everything, are showing on my profile. Not cool at all, that's info I believe should be my choice to share, and I don't want to be representing my company when I'm just on a dating site! So I go to change it, oh wait! You have to pay! to even update your most basic info, like removing the companies I have and currently do work for. I regret even giving them access to all my info, had to change all my passwords because who knows what they will do with access to my social accounts. I hate this app for that.
Not Worth The Price
by Abbie Belle on 2019/01/30 08:52
I have an issue with the profiles that I receive. I have a preference of ethnicity for African American men. However, during happy hour I’m sent multiple profiles of men who are not African American, and that is not my preference. I’m upset because I didn’t pay $300 to be sent profiles of men that I did not state as a preference. It also wastes time for profiles that could be a potential match for me based on the preferences I specifically selected, being that you only get to choose from 5 profiles per day unless you pay extra money on top of the $300 to get more matches a day. However I wouldn’t want to pay for extra profiles a day since the profiles don’t even match the preferences selected. Save your money and time and let the universe allow you to meet your love on a regular day in the real world, not on a scamming app on a phone screen. Lesson learned.
🔈🚫scammmmmm alert!🚫❌📢
by SurferRosa890 on 2018/12/01 07:11
I signed up months ago and im still on the "waiting list" im 30,206 out of 50,450 in Los Angeles . If I pay for a membership I will magically get into the the League. Should be called "League if Scammers" This company preys on the insecurity of lonely people to separate them from thier money. In addition, they dont allow you to delete your profile, so they can pad thier member numbers. Any way you look at it this app is a scam. Dont be fooled and dont sign up. All these members are also on the free sites. You can access high quality people in your area from any social media. Dont pay them and make them richer. Thats my Top Tip! Dont sign up for any apps that require you to give permission to your Facebook. thats how they sell your data and make even more cash off of your life. I wish they would let me delete my profile. I want to separate myself from this racket.
Not very impressed so far
by MsStancil on 2019/02/03 03:13
I really liked the idea of a more “exclusive” dating app. But ... The League hasn’t really impressed me at all. I’ve been on the app for a few months now and have only received 3 matches, none of which could or we’re interested in conversation. The concierge sends a lot of generic seeming messages that have me feeling like it’s probably a robot . I’m not even sure what his role is . I think there are some good ideas in the app. Like the community events and interests pages . It’s also pretty easy to use. But I don’t really think it’s a better experience than any of the other swiping apps. At least you get more opportunities for mundane conversations on those . I’m open to statistics proving me wrong though. I’d love to here some success stories from other people using this app and finding something closer to love . Or at least finding a date :)
New Kid on the Block is Killing the Game
by Rey93 on 2018/01/16 14:32
I have used all of the tinder and bumble swipes imaginable in the never ending millennial search for a woman who is both intelligent and attractive. The League has taken a lot of the burden of searching off of my shoulders. By giving me the chance to match with quality women who are actually doing things with their lives every day has made my dating decisions less and more complicated all at the same time. No longer am I disengaged with my swipes and playing a numbers game. It’s a refreshing change and I’ve deleted my other apps in lieu of giving this one s real shot.
Unsure

I was really excited for this app and I wanted to be satisfied. I waited for about a month and was finally accepted. You have to give access to social media such as Facebook and LinkedIn. After seeing the prospects, I was disappointed. It did not seem to be as exclusive for males and some of the male members I found did not even attend college (nothing wrong with that but how can you pride yourself on being better than the others if the members are below average). You only get 3 prospects per day, unless you want to pay extra. Overall, has the potential to be better. The waiting around and the app description on the App Store hype the league up to be much more than it actually is. If you are looking for an app that could lead to potential relationships, I would recommend Hinge.
Not as advertised

I thought I’d meet men whom also graduated from a nice college, have some ambition, & lived in the Area. One of the above. I get three matches a day and despite my preferences set I am still getting truck drivers, target sales associates, and aspiring entertainers. I went to a top university and I work so much in a career I love.. I’d just like someone whom at least have that in common with me. I did meet some matches, which takes forever... two had girlfriends and that’s not the apps fault... Though I do remember when I selected that I was “Single”. Not sure if they lied or if it matches you with them regardless. Also, I keep getting matches in other states. I’ve only been on this app for four months. It’s just so weird. Either way, I guess it was all too good to be true. I am not into dating apps so I thought to try this one. Seemed like a nice platform. Oh well.
Not for everyone but perfect for me!

Yes, you have to give your social networks to verify your profile. And you have to have LinkedIn to prove you are a professional in the modern era. And you have to wait on the waitlist for them to verify these things, but once you’re in, this is by far the best dating app out there. And I’ve tried them all! If you are looking to meet a quality guy that’s educated with a good job, this is the place. And they have all these awesome singles events IRL which finally helps you go to a party and know who is available. I love it and am having fun on it looking love!
This isn’t a dating app
by Jamo0001 on 2018/01/18 13:18
This is a data-mining scam, and their Terms of Service reveals it. Here’s their play: force you to log in with multiple social media accounts (do Tinder, et al, ask you for your Facebook *and* LinkedIn data?) Next, they put you on a “waiting list” so that your social media accounts stay sync’ed up with their servers for as long as possible; this prevents you from deactivating your account once you “get accepted into The League” like people often do once they realize a given dating app is just the same (if not worse) than all the others. Then, they aggregate and sell all of the users’ data (including the 99% that are on the “waiting list”). Look in their Terms of Service: “Aggregate Data. We may anonymize and aggregate data collected through the Service and use it for any purpose.” If this were *actually* about helping people find dates, why in the world would they “vet” members before their profiles are even in The League? All you’re doing is shrinking the pool and thus shrinking the possibility for matches. In short: it’s a scam they’re using so that they can make money by selling your Facebook and LinkedIn info to third parties. Save your time and don’t download the app.
This app is awful
by RayoV on 2019/06/14 04:06
I tried this app because my friend said she was on it. It’s selling you “exclusive”, and is the app equivalent of waiting in line and having one of those idiots ask how many followers you have to let you in the door of a pretentious club while chewing gum to show off the diamond on his tooth. They love telling you what number you are in line and using lame LA wanna be words like “stellar” “notorious waitlist” “power move””your concierge” ahhhh and I can’t figure out how to permanently delete it, because of course, that is hidden somewhere. My “concierge” won’t answer the emails. Help! Delete!!! PS - thanks for the reply insinuating that I’m looking for “random hookups.” I don’t randomly hookup with anyone. If you read properly, you will see that I am complaining about how pretentious it is and how there is no way to delete your profile.
Super lame, don’t waste your time
by Stacy Eden on 2018/04/15 15:55
You can take forever to set up your profile according to all their requirements and then get mad with some guy that says that witty banter makes him nervous and peanut butter is life. Not kidding, that was the most clever description in anyone’s bio that I read the entire time I used this app. Several of my matches had not one picture of them smiling. Not one. No common interests, and only five matches per day? Clearly they are trying to get you to use the app every day so they can sell more advertising. And it’s painful, the ads, the app constantly pushing you to spend money, if you’re looking to peruse less than mediocre matches at their schedule, not yours, then the league is for you. And when i brought up my frustrations to my ‘concierge’ he told me to improve my profile! Wow! Huge waste of time.
Where’s the product development?
by TimeisNow2019 on 2019/04/29 21:37
I tried The League 2 years ago for a period of time and am on it again. There is seemingly little product development in that period of time to make it easier to meet people in real life. That’s the goal, everything else prior to that point is a giant waste of time. The League has 2 major deficiencies in that regard: 1. Not collecting enough user info to match users based on shared interests 2. Not limiting matches to a specific number. Limit users to 5 matches and stop their daily feed at that point. This eliminates the ‘grass is greener’ effect and makes them more serious/focused about who they match with, which should lead to more messaging and ultimately meets. They can expire matches to get their feed started again, but each expire will hurt their league score. Anything to get the match-to-meet ratio higher for their members. That ratio is very low for me, my friends and a lot of other members based on the reviews. Again League Product dev team: It’s all a giant waste of time if meets don’t happen and free time is something your targeted user base doesn’t have much of to begin with.
Waste of time
by ASB2014 on 2018/11/02 00:12
I kept giving this app a try, but it’s just not where it needs to be. I don’t know if people in larger cities have a different experience, but I’m lucky to even see 5 people in one round (and you only get one round a day). They keep bragging about how many people they have waiting to “get in,” but I’m lucky if one of the (typically) three people I see is someone I haven’t already passed on. They also send you super annoying, emoji-excessive messages. I feel like this app was an attempt to provide a high-class experience for people in the millennial generation, and the fact that I love that concept alone is the reason I’m giving it more than one star, but they just missed the mark. If you want to weed out matches, just use Bumble.
Data collection scam!
by Joseaxe on 2019/02/23 11:50
I “joined” the league about a month ago and was put into a waitlist and my spot was ~47k out of ~50k in my area. Today I am at ~46k out of ~56k... thanks but I would really like to try this out before 2023! The waitlist chat room has only 2-4 messages a day when there are supposedly ~600k people in total on the waitlist. The “concierge” is just a bot to shove membership “promotions” and can’t even answer the issues that I am having with the invite that I got. They get you to link your facebook, instagram and even linkedin for no reason other than collect your data and most likely sell it to maybe ad agencies or something similar. Don’t waste your time on this app that clearly is just trying ti get your info and nothing else, there are so many better apps out there.
Prestigious dating app
by Darling_taylor on 2019/02/28 15:49
I like the layout of this app. I like that it’s exclusive and I think it’s really well done. However, I have matched with many men, I have a very high match ratio, yet none of them speak! I’ve tried reaching out first, I’ve tried asking interesting questions. The response rate of this app is so low that it begins to feel like a waste of time and my 5 o’clock “happy hour” would be better spent elsewhere. I can’t help but think everyone on this app feels so very exclusive that they don’t actually need to talk to someone, because the next best match is always on it’s way. I don’t frequent dating apps, though I have been on hinge. On there, they honor a woman or man of value and they close. On here, everyone is “valuable”, so who cares right?
Outside of NY? Not worth it.
by RLR0315 on 2019/06/03 23:34
The League concept is great, but does not translate into practice. The app does not have the volume or quality of users it claims anywhere outside of New York. I asked for matches within 40 miles of my location and receive candidates not only in other cities, but mostly in other states. My assigned concierge for The League fully admits the app does not have the claimed following and even told me I should contact Apple to get my money back with instructions on how to do just that. I also do not think the app actually works since I am coming across some of the same people I have matched with in other apps, but yet do not on this one. Until the app has more users, it is a waste of a lot of money.
