Exclusive vip dating club
While most apps are location-based, Raya shows you users from all over the world.Rather than being restricted to dating within your neighborhood, like the commoners of Tinder, Raya’s users are global citizens—in a special bicoastal club.Raya has a lot more to do with class than with other stratifications like attractiveness.It’s not an app that's for people who are rich or white or in other ways privileged, but it’s for people who are only comfortable around their own kind, who already share their values, their aesthetic.“It’s not that I'm anti-exclusivity or against narrowing things down, but Raya just seems to attract the wrong people.
Last weekend, while drinking vodka from a water bottle on Fire Island beach, I was complaining about the pervasive Raya worship to my friend Alan, a 33-year-old filmmaker.
People on Raya don’t take the subway; they fly to meet each other.
Or at least, that’s the impression the app wants to give off.
Instead, Raya creates the promise of something romantic, but it’s actually just people trying to be around other cooler people.” He shrugged.
“If all a Raya date is going to get me is one more Instagram follower, well, I just don't need that in my life.”My experience has been somewhat similar.I’ve been on Raya for a year, but it’s the only dating app that I’ve never successfully met anyone through, compared with Tinder, Happn, and Bumble, which have all led to various degrees of dating, friendship, and casual sex.And Raya is the only app on which a match has asked me to tweet a link to their Kickstarter.You'll cap off your night at a famous NYC nightclub -- entry fee included!
