Tinder Select, the newest of the bunch, has been around since at least September.In an online Reddit message board devoted to discussing Tinder, some users wondered what the slick blue “S” meant on their screens and assumed it was an elite version of the app.There’s an .99 monthly fee to speak with users whose profiles list their favourite luxury brands next to their verified incomes.While Weigel thinks the exclusive apps are “elitist” and “explicitly classist,” others see the good in them.Like Toronto therapist and relationship expert Kimberly Moffit.“I’m a huge fan of doing things online that are going to get you close to love,” she says.

On Tinder Select, it appears high rankings in an unknown scoring system is required.And then they bring in the “class-sorting mechanisms.” “We want to believe that you could fall in love with anybody, and for it to be pure it should be untainted by material interest,” Weigel says.“This is a fantasy.”And a historically recent fantasy, she says.While most of these apps began as free experiences, that doesn’t mean they’ll stay that way.

They’ve built up massive audiences for advertisers and this new exclusive segregation of some users is a natural evolution, Levy says.Experts aren’t surprised mobile courtship has come to this.
