Frawley just moved back to this area after nearly three years in Philadelphia, and it's been hard to meet friends, let alone go on dates.A friend recommended The League over other dating websites such as Bumble, Frawley said.CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Emily Davis, a first-year law student at Case Western Reserve University, is the kind of career-oriented woman that the dating app The League exists for.Davis was among 500 Clevelanders chosen for The League's inaugural class of ambitious, well-educated men and women looking for the same qualities in a mate.On this app, there's no swiping left or right like on other online dating sites.
One of her matches was a doctoral candidate at Case Western Reserve University who described himself as a "British Texan." Davis, 24, was charmed. "It's kinda cute." Whether Davis and the British Texan ever meet depends on on whether she sends him a "heart" through the app, and he reciprocates.
Those who are deemed not up to snuff languish in the wait zone indefinitely, Davis said.
The app's wait list has been open in Cleveland since 2014.
Nationally, 30 percent of League users have advanced degrees, and 20 percent have MBAs.
Lauren Frawley, 27, thinks that her master's degree in occupational therapy helped make her one of the 500 Clevelanders chosen for The League's opening day.
