Taking your connection with your online match offline just got a whole lot easier. As of today, you can now send your match a drink or flowers on dating app The League. The selective dating app, which pulls in your LinkedIn and Facebook information and has an admissions-based model, paired up with two on-demand services that will make same-day deliveries in New York and San Francisco: BloomThat, a modern flower company, and Minibar, an alcohol delivery service that sends beer, wine, and liquor.
Trying to increase your odds with flirty gesture is nothing new for dating apps — Happn lets you "charm" potential matches, send them a song, and even leave them a voicemail, and Tinder let's you "super like" users, so they'll know you're really crushing on them before you decide which way to swipe — but this move from The League is a notable way to stand out IRL.
“Our users are busy, but they still want the opportunity to make a memorable first impression," said The League CEO and founder, Amanda Bradford in a press release. "In true League fashion, we are putting a fresh twist on the tired dating app ‘charm’ experience. The League will always strive to offer our members an incredibly differentiated experience – it’s what sets us apart from the dozens of other dating apps out there and why so many of our users are exclusive to The League.”
So, how do you do you send your match a drink or flowers? Users can simply message their in-app concierge, (the cute guy or girl who sends you app updates and who you maybe sometimes hit on) your match or prospect's name and tell them which bouquet or drink you want to send, along with a short message.
Bouquet services will be $45 and drinks will be $25. Just in time for February 14, this may be you're surefire way to score a last-minute Valentine's Day date.
