Where money is concerned, the playing field between the rich and poor is anything but level. No matter how many rags to riches stories or royalty and peasant love affairs defied the odds, there were always be a line between the rich and poor. It’s also a reality that most rich people tend to marry within their circle, which is definitely not big enough to even include middle-class earners.
This situation is magnified even more with the release of a new dating app named Luxy. Unlike other dating apps, this one is designed specifically for the rich. Most of its members belong to the upper class, with the male members earning an average of $200,000. Among its 3,000 users are millionaires, investors, CEOs and fitness models.
What if I just download the app, and pretend I am wealthy? You could, but you won’t last long with Luxy. The dating app has a filter that weed out the rich from the not. According to company spokesman Darren Shuster, “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. It doesn’t take long to weed out those who belong on a different kind of dating site.”
Due to the controversial nature of the app, the identity of the CEO is kept anonymous, lest he suffer some backlash. Nonetheless, he was generous enough to impart these words: “With the rise of high-speed digital dating, it’s about time somebody introduced a filter to weed out low-income prospects by neighborhood.”
So any low-income earner, who wants to snag a millionaire, may not find Luxy to be very helpful in their quest. They must have the money and lifestyle to show off, which could be a tall order. But if you’re heart’s set on this task, you should start building your finances by investing and clearing all your debts. Improve your financial situation and you just might experience how the other half lives.
