“It works a lot like Tinder, except this is Tinder minus the poor people,” said Darren Shuster, spokesperson for Luxy, a dating app geared towards the one percent.
“I would describe the average member as somebody who makes a lot of money,” Shuster told KPIX 5.
"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." According to Shuster, the app has 3,000 members already and the average male user’s income is 0,000 a year – though they neglected to include the incomes or specific numbers of female users.
“Multiple cars, art collections, big fancy mansions.” In order to join, men must make at least 0,000 a year (which must be verified with tax records), and women have to be attractive.
“It’s sort of like that party you have in high school where the men get in for two dollars and women are free,” he said.
They also share their favorite hobbies – suitable for rich people, of course – like sailing, golf and horseback riding.
