How To Go From The Match to Matrimony!

AmandaUncategorizedLeave a Comment


In honor of the one and only St. Valentine himself, we had our data team pull some stats? on 100 LeagueLove? couples who have taken the next step in their relationship to find out how they got from match to matrimony?(or a new ER contact for some!). We also highlighted a few of our favorite LeagueLove stories on our website



Messages Sent: LeagueLove couples sent an average of 34 messages before exchanging numbers compared to other matches who sent an average of 10 messages. Yes that’s right, LeagueLove couples actually got to know each other’s personality a bit! If you and your match have each sent about 15 messages each, well, now’s the time to ask one final question and take it offline!

Message Content: Over 70% of Leaguelove conversations said each others’ first names and ended at least 1 sentence with a “haha” or emojis. While a few couples moved to text before scheduling, over 80% suggested meeting up in THE NEXT WEEK followed by a posible activity as part of their 34 messages.

Prior Matches: Our Leaguelove couples had an average of 84 prior matches before Hearting ‘the one’. This means this was not their first rodeo – sometimes you gotta kiss a couple frogs to find your prince(ess)!

Initiation & Engagement: LeagueLove women are go-getters! 1 out of every 3 straight League couples started with a woman messaging first. In the straight LeagueLove relationships that resulted in engagement, the woman spent less time per day on the app than the man did, but leveraged their Concierge 3x more and had 3x the initiation rate of a typical female user, even after normalizing for profile popularity.

League Score: Our LeagueLove couples all had extremely high League Scores.  What does this mean? In addition to having a popular profile that gets ‘Hearted’ a lot, a high League Score also indicates low flakiness, high initiation rate, and a solid attendance rate at our daily 5PM Happy Hours 🙂 The most interesting part of this tidbit is that our LeagueLove couples, on average, were only 1 standard deviation away from their partners League Score, whereas across all the matches in The League, the deviation is close to 3! This means our LeagueLove couples must have a spidey-sense to recognize others who use The League in an eerily similar manner!

Age Difference: LeagueLove couples have an average of a 3 year age difference average difference compared to non success stories with a 6 average age difference. Of course for some, age is just a number, but it looks like on The League dating those within 3 years of your own age may lead to a more long-lasting relationship!

Education Ranking: Over 50% of our LeagueLove couples went to colleges/universities that were ranked similarly in terms of cost and acceptance rate, and over 80% had the same level of degree obtained. Those who believe in investing a lot of money for their education tend to prefer others who also believe in investing a lot of money into education. Makes sense.

Game Changers: 20% of our LeagueLove users used a Power Move to ‘land’ their partner, of which half used the Power Move feature anonymously (the other user sees them right away but does not know if they had liked them already). The other half chose to Power Move explicitly, choosing to send a sweet or funny note to the other user via their Concierge and appearing in their feed with a filled in green heart to indicate interest.

While there may not be an exact science when it comes to love, but having these data points in your back pocket gives you a formula that has resulted in success.

We know you like your NYE parties like you like your dating apps– highly curated options that match your selective preferences. That is why this year we’re curating your NYE parties like we curate your matches. How did we source them? Our Events team partnered with our Event City Scouts to find the best events in the below 15 cities by rating them across the following three categories:

  • Most likely to have strong midnight kiss candidates
  • Most amount of free-flowing champagne toasts
  • Least likely to have an unnecessary waitlist (although some of the best things in life are worth waiting for)

So if you were planning on hanging in with a bottle of wine, and some popcorn, take a look at our curated NYE events perfect for singles. With our list of all-star parties, the ball won’t be the only thing dropping it low this New Year’s Eve!

How To Survive Your Awkward Thanksgiving!

AmandaUncategorizedLeave a Comment

Thanksgiving is meant to be a time to relax and be thankful for happiness, health, family, and friends. But how is that possible when your family makes passive-aggressive comments about your single status?

While we can’t prepare you for awkward dinner conversations over the current political climate or yet another conversation about why the Kardashians are famous, we can arm with some great stats for when your family asks why you’re still single:

  • Looking for a great excuse to leave that awkward conversation with your distant cousin? Tell them The League saw a 15% spike in engagement last year on Thanksgiving eve!
  • Since cuffing season began on November 5th, aggregate match rate on the League increased by 22%. Maybe pumpkin spice is an aphrodisiac?!
  • 37% of our users say that they go out the night before Thanksgiving! Time to see if your ex from High School is back on the market.

Make sure all your single friends can survive their Thanksgivings at home as well: We’re celebrating Friendsgiving beyond just the dinner. Endorse your single friends by Nov 27th and you’ll be entered to win one of 50 complimentary, one year memberships (including the expedited review)! Send them an endorsement (Settings—>Endorse a Friend for The League)  You will only receive credit for an endorsement if a user creates a brand new League profile this week using the link you sent to them!  If they already were on the waitlist, no gravy!
