By Jesse Noyes It can be hard being a single Ivy League graduate looking for love with a suitable companion.
But if you’ve made it into some of the nation’s most prestigious universities, at least one dating service wants to help you out.
It’s not just in your head, everyone and their mom is on Tinder, and they’re swiping left and right more than 1.4 billion times every day.
This might be worth looking into; we wonder if they accept the ‘Ivy League’ of Dawson's Creek, NC as worth letting in.
Ivy Connect exists outside the realm of ordinary life.
It sits at an intersection of entrepreneurial hubris and Ivy League self-mythology.
You better not go around bragging to everyone that you matched with some semi-famous Who's it for: Ivy League snobs Sparkology sells itself as a luxury matchmaking service for "well-intentioned men and women," where the dudes are all verified grads of top-tier schools, and you can only join if you're invited by the site's team or referred by a current member.
Some other interesting details: guys have to pony up a virtual currency to initiate conversation with a lady, and the app provides a concierge service that will help you boost your profile and even plan out a whole date when you're ready to take things offline. The League claims to screen users via some mysterious algorithm that "keeps [the] community well-balanced and high-quality," while somehow hiding you from friends, “business connections,” and coworkers.
None of those were as jarring as having a potential first-meet flirt pivot into a PR pitch.
