It’s also good opportunity to express yourself and flex your creative flair.
However, picking the right words or taking that perfect photo can sometimes be a little tricky.
"I designed it for career-oriented, busy, professional women," Amanda Bradford says as she looks down at a device in her palm.
But instead of an alarm clock that rattles off to-do list items or a hybrid baby monitor/conference call speaker, the 29-year-old's clutching her i Phone and swiping through a prototype of The League, her dating app that launches today.
Plus, for those who want added privacy, Bradford developed a premium service, the League's "Heavy Hitters," which ensures ultimate control.
As a Heavy Hitter paying $15 a month (standard use of The League is free), no one can see your profile unless you want them to.#2: The curation thing.
We ardently believe that true happiness blossoms when two compatible people are matched.
Our commitment to this fundamental tenet makes Elite Singles one of the most trusted sites for professional dating in Australia.Because of this we offer a host of expert tips on what to write and how to look.Conveying what makes you unique shouldn’t be a chore and that’s why we’re happy to help!Of course, while requiring both Facebook and Linked In could be a barrier (many creative types don't have Linked In; many people have jumped ship from Facebook), it seems to be more of a hurdle than a total roadblock, with people actually signing up for Lindked In or reactivating their Facebook accounts so they can get on the list for The League.Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of people who want to date without ditching their discretionary concerns.Behind the scenes, The League works not unlike a private matchmaker—curated, careful, thoughtful—but with the ease and Gen Y-ness of an app, it attracts young 20 and 30-somethings, not 50 year old "entrepreneurs" looking for their fourth wives.#3: The no creepers thing. With that in mind, Bradford developed "a flagging system so that if the user is just there to check it out and not participate, we put them back on the wait list." Because a dating app should only be for people who really, actually want to date, right?
