On Raya, how do you ever know if someone’s in your bed because they truly like , or whether they’re just fucking you for your followers? Besides its exclusivity, there are a couple of additional things that differentiate Raya from other dating apps.While most apps are location-based, Raya shows you users from all over the world.Employers are expected to close the loop when someone sends them business correspondence, which is what a job application is.With online dating, there’s more of a cultural norm (among most people, at least) that if you’re not interested, there’s no need to respond to say that; it’s okay to just delete the message.And Raya is the only app on which a match has asked me to tweet a link to their Kickstarter.Obviously, part of the reason we all want to be successful is so we can fuck better people.

I voted for Bernie Sanders in the primaries, that sort of thing. Sure, it’s sort of cool to swipe past lesser celebs while drunkenly prowling for sex on your phone, but you’re probably never going to sleep with those people. In reality, Raya is full of C-List models, social-media managers who for some reason have a ton of arty photos of themselves emerging from the ocean, people named Wolf, people whose bios say things like “racing driver living between Monaco and Tokyo,” and, like, a million dudes who claim to be successful fashion photographers, but in reality have less Instagram followers than some dogs I know.
