“It’s really problematic, but I would want to know if someone is not into me for that reason because that’s definitely not someone I would want to talk to.
It would just be a waste of both of our time if he is racist.” Would she still join The League if she was “drafted” now? I have a little bit of a cynical view on online dating.
Bradford became interested in online dating after becoming single following the end of a five-year relationships.
She started her online hunt while finishing her master’s degree in business at Stanford and found she was running into the same problem over and over again.
“The brand of The League is really for these ambitious driven, young professionals that want to date other ambitious, driven young professionals,” explained Amanda Bradford, founder of The League.
Instead, young professionals looking for a suitable mate are flocking to apps like The League and syncing their Linked In profile in the hopes that their resumes will help seal the deal and find them someone special.
And maybe, just maybe, you’d like them to be in your same neighborhood, attractive enough to at least look good in black-and-white photos, with a height that meets your way-too-restrictive height preferences.There was no context to their profiles – just their name and their photo. “I felt like I should just go ahead and create an app that I myself wanted to use and solve all the pain points I had identified on the other apps,” she said. Launched in San Francisco in November 2014, it has since spread to New York and is expected to launch in Los Angeles and London in the coming months.What makes The League special, according to Bradford, is that it is synced with Linked In and Facebook.I mean, I’d give it a shot and see what happens,” said White, who has tried other apps like Tinder.“I always hold a little hope that this is going to be the lucky day and this match is going to be perfect.” For those tired of waiting, there are other options like Be Linked, which has more than 50,000 users in more than 100 counties.
