Since The League's launch, the app has gathered about 100,000 names on its wait-list; 16,000 of those people live in the New York City area.Most of the New York waitlist consists of single professionals in finance and advertising. Prove you're not one of those nut jobs and we'll chat. If you can show us something we've never seen before, that's as good as gold. I always laugh when guys in NYC say, "Man, why are women so on guard all the time? So do 12 construction workers on my way home and some weird asshole on the subway and Weird Barry who is always sitting outside my building. Sometimes it's just totally out-of-the-blue inappropriate touching, sometimes it's someone yelling at a waitress out of nowhere to the point where we're truly terrified, but the point is, between that and the street harassment, we might be a little on edge.3.
A fabulous way to visit or re-visit some of the best the city has to offer.
New Yorkers think they've seen it all, but with so many new restaurants and shows and weirdo tourist attractions popping up all the time, there's no way that's true. There are, like, 14 food delivery apps for a reason.
Any time I've ever been on a date with a guy who could take me somewhere amazing that I had no idea existed, it's been cause for a small celebration with balloons.4. I will say though that if you cook for us, we will be sooooo hyped. We're incredibly passionate about everything all the time.

This city is so full of places to fall in love with and things to be excited about and we want to do all of it.
If you live in the Bronx and I don't, you are not my soul mate. And if you are, I'm sorry but that commute is no fucking joke and I simply cannot. One group text is sent and we're all yours (JK, JK). Our city is pretty compact, so even though it might sound nuts to be like, "I can't go to the East Village," that's actually like saying, "I don't love going near Exit 19B" on the highway in most other cities, so it's pretty reasonable. We're like that Eminem song: You only get one shot. We live in a city of go-getters and we most likely are one ourselves, so you better be able to make a plan. It'll easily take me 30 to 45 minutes to get there, and that's if all the trains haven't mysteriously shut down because of construction no one believes will actually ever fix anything, but that's a whole other thing.
