The platform is well-designed and user-friendly. The registration might take a few minutes. Unfortunately, there are too many fake profiles, and most of the scammers are out there so we would recommend staying safe and aware.
The League. Are you told your standards are too high?
The League dating app was created by a woman who was tired of the constant failure of her expectations in dating. The platform is extremely exclusive, and it will take time to get in. Maybe it is worth it, but we doubt the platform is LGBTQ+ friendly.
Free account set up. Membership plans:
- 1 month — $99.00,
- 6 months — $199.00,
- 12 months — $349.00.
The platform allows creating a free account, although to get in any further you will have to go through several verification steps that require a lot of personal information.
If you are lucky enough to get into the League don’t get too excited, there are only a few matches for you daily.
The platform will be attractive for people who are tired of fake profiles and want everyone to be legit. That is something the app can assure you about — their security measures come along the discrimination. There is a lot of feedback on how racist the app is, and it is not open for LGBT community.
Clover. The fastest way to meet new people
They claim to be user-friendly like Tinder and match like Match.com. So far, the app seems to succeed as it has a massive bank of active members worldwide.

The platform is LGBT friendly. Users have a wide pool of preferences to set up before they match with someone. The app looks neat and modern and makes you want to use it.
Clover is confident about their user pool and believes that you can find yourself a date through the service, that doesn’t include human factor. Either than that everything seems legit and ready to use.
Dating apps for LGBT are popping on the market, and everyone is trying to create something unique and convenient to use. The century is young, and we are excited to see what that will bring. Love freely and stay safe.
Pure is for real meetings, not endless chats online
Pure users have only an hour to chat before their profiles disappear. In one hour, you send a casual sex request to potential matches near your location, discuss your desires, and share contact detail to set up an offline date. If you want to repeat the search and find other matches, you have to create a new profile. No worries, it takes a minute.
