We check criminal history and verify identity of every accepted applicant.
Our selection process has nothing to do with being wealthy or elite. Service, accomplishment, intelligence and good citizenship are what we look for.
Every member’s profile is accompanied by their current decorum score for everyone to see.
While it would be profitable to keep you on a dating hamster wheel, we’ve decided to focus more on relationships and less on hooking up.
We are launching SingledIn in New York City in October, 2018. We are currently accepting applications and we will send a text to all accepted applicants on October 1, 2018 and the app will then go live. We will announce the second active city soon. Please do not apply for membership in SingledIn unless you live in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island or The Bronx.
LinkedIn does not give us access to your username and password so there is no risk. Linkedin provides us with a portal that allows us to link to your profile without us ever seeing or knowing your user credentials. We never have access to you username or password at any point during this process.
No. Nor will we tell anyone.
No. We don’t have access to any of your Linkedin contacts or their email addresses. Nor do we email or notify anyone that you’ve signed up for SingledIn.
By applying through your Linkedin account we can quickly begin to set up your profile without having you input all the data manually. More important, it provides us with verification of your identity, employment, education, community service and accomplishments. Your Linkedin profile is one of the most important factors that our Acceptance Committee considers during your application process.
There are many dating apps that encourage a never-ending hamster wheel of dates and hook-ups. By giving each member 24 months, we are making a statement about our dating platform. If you’re not serious about finding a standout partner, then SingledIn is not for you. We’ve done the hard work of bringing together the best and brightest. And if you’re focused and serious we feel 24 months is plenty of time to find your forever partner. We’re that confident in our members.
Your Decorum Score is a measurement of your behavior on SingledIn. It is a publicly facing metric that is prominently displayed on each member’s profile screen. It’s meant to be a signal to people regarding how serious, polite and focused you are on finding a great partner. We’ve interviewed dozens of people regarding modern digital dating behavior and our Decorum Score measures the actions that matter most. For example if you swipe right on every potential match, then we feel you’re not truly considering each potential match individually. Or if you never respond to someone after you’ve both swiped right, we feel that’s rude. We expect that all members will act with integrity, compassion and exemplary manners. We measure over a dozen behaviors and if your Decorum Score slips too low you will be warned once and then Singled-OUT of our platform.
Once admitted we offer monthly membership options ranging from $20-$35 per month depending on your length of commitment.
It takes between 7 and 10 days to complete our review of your application.
Great question! We’ve spent the past 2 years researching all the major dating apps, talking to singles and creating a better platform. We start with a modest application fee that deters the creepers. Then we run a full background check to verify an applicant’s identity and criminal history. This weeds out the fakes and the bad guys. After that our Acceptance Committee does a thorough review of each applicant and admits a modest percentage of the best and brightest. Once admitted we hold all members to the highest decorum standards by measuring your behavior and providing a public Decorum Score that must be maintained at a high level. Finally, we only give each member 24 months on our platform, which creates a sense of urgency. No other dating app comes close to providing this type of focused, courteous, sophisticated experience.
Depends on how you define ‘elite’. We are looking for outstanding people who are citizens of the world. This has nothing to do with wealth or beauty and everything to do with achievement, sense-of-purpose, charity and decorum. That’s our definition of elite.
Our $9 application fee pays primarily for the cost of running a criminal background check and verifying each applicant’s identity. We also feel that the $9 is the perfect amount to deter people who aren’t really serious about joining a relationship-focused dating app.
No. It’s similar to applying to college. If you don’t get accepted you don’t get the application fee returned. And if you do get accepted you still don’t get the application fee returned.
Checkr is the third-party company that runs our background checks. They provide us two major pieces of data: first they verify each applicant’s identity and second they provide a thorough review of each applicant’s criminal history.
There is no single type of person who gets admitted to SingledIn. We search for the best and brightest. We look for people with a sense of purpose. We look at what you’re doing for your community. We look at your career trajectory. We check your social media footprint and even check to see the kinds of people and activities you’re interested in. Our process has nothing to do with how wealthy you are, how beautiful you are or how enviable your Instagram posts are. In order to be ‘Singled-In’ you truly need to stand out as someone who is making an imprint on the world.
While we do not disclose our acceptance rate, we can tell you that it is lower than many top colleges.
