Snobs Rich people already have a social network only for themselves in the form of Netropolitan, but in order to communicate there, they first need to meet and know each other, and the Luxy dating app was made exactly for that.
The one percent seem to get more and more attention on the Internet lately, as more and more platforms are developed so that they can meet and brag about their bank accounts, fancy trips and bling-bling, in general. Somehow, their snobbishness reaches new limits, since they don’t realize how ridiculous is all this.
“Tinder was pretty awesome when it came out, but there’s a lot of riff raff on there,” explains an unnamed user who got cited in the press release. The developers claim that “It’s Tinder without low-income dating prospects. In fact, the average income of male users on LUXY is over $200k and those who are unable to keep up financially are immediately removed from the service.” After all, you’re dating for money, not for a happy life near someone you love, don’t you?
Luxy‘s CEO, who is simply known as Tim T., pointed out why an app like this was necessary: “With the rise of high-speed digital dating, it’s about time somebody introduced a filter to weed out low-income prospects by neighborhood.” Spokesman Darren Shuster made this point even clearer: “If you show up in a 20-year-old VW Bug, and request to meet at McDonald’s, you won’t last very long on LUXY. Look, these members drive the best cars, hang out at the fanciest hotels, live in the biggest houses, wear the best clothes. It doesn’t take long to weed out those who belong on a different kind of dating site.
Judging by the description of the app, Luxy is also for people who skipped grammar lessons, or school altogether: “Our members include CEOs, entrepreneurs, investors, millionaires, beauty queens, fitness models, Hollywood celebrities, pro athletes, doctors, lawyes [sic] and successful people, juast [sic] name a few.” Yeah, right! Netropolitan, the exclusive social network for the rich, claims the same thing, but I think this is a strategy used for attracting those exact categories of people. It’s like they’re saying: “You belong here! There are others just like you!”
