Dating for ivy league
With Tinder recently releasing their premium feature – which lets users undo an accidental swipe, and change your location to browse overseas users – we asked Bradford what she thought of their subscription plan: “I think Tinder’s monetization strategy – their passport feature – is a feature designed for creepy guys by creepy guys.
Now women can be ogled by men from all over the world.
I am now in a brilliant relationship beyond any of my expectations I have never ever felt so happy and alive in my life and she feels exactly the same.

The League, the dating app branded as “elitist” in the press, has launched in San Francisco, and wants to correct some misconceptions about their product.

Bradford said they want to create a “community of people who are looking for other like-minded, ambitious professionals”, who may well be disillusioned with apps like Tinder.
Last week The League launched in San Francisco, where 3,000 people have signed up.
