Online dating 40
(If you’re in your 40s, you don’t need the hassle of having your friends or coworkers finding your profile on a dating app.) The League also has networking events, making it easier to meet people offline. It’s kinda-sorta invite only, and it’s only available in NYC, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
The upside to this app is that you know everyone on it has been vetted and is actually who they say they are (they even checks your social channels to make sure everything matches up).
Basically, the app tracks your location and allows you to see anyone in your vicinity (or who has been in your vicinity recently) who is also on the app. The app works best in big cities, since the more users you run into, the more matches you’re likely to have. Like other services on this list, Plentyof Fish has been around for a while, which means it has a lots and lots of people who use it.
Even though you don’t hear much buzz about this app, it actually has the second most users out of all dating apps, coming in right after Tinder.
If the idea of a conventional dating app makes you feel weird, the League may interest you.
It’s simple, easy, and the opposite of overwhelming, especially for those who don’t have time to spend hours swiping through potential dates because they’re, you know—working.
One caveat: Because the app sources your matches from friends of friends on Facebook, this might not be the best option for those who are trying to widen their dating pool beyond their community.
First of all, their top priority is your privacy, which is crucial.
The League specifically blocks anyone you’re friends with on Facebook or Linked In from seeing your profile.
