Luxy

Luxy Review [ Read This Before Signing Up ]

When it comes to dating, I’ve found that it’s difficult to meet anyone who isn’t completely sub-par. Well, if on-par isn’t good enough for you, you might want to get off your regular old dating apps. While you think that you might meet the love of your life on an app like Tinder, I’m sure that after using it for a few months you quickly realized you were very, very wrong. It seems that the worst of society somehow make their way onto dating apps… and I feel your pain.

If you’re looking for something more exclusive, then >LUXY may just be the perfect app for you. This site bills itself as an ultra-exclusive app and – like its name would hint – it claims that it’s the key to luxury dating… whatever that means…

Well, if you’re looking for that coveted luxury dating experience, then you may not have to look much further than the “#1 Millionaire’s matchmaking and dating club”. If you can get it, maybe this is the site for you. I somehow weaseled my way into the site to give you a fully comprehensive review. Here are my thoughts on this extremely VIP app:

  1. First Impressions:

    Just looking at the site is an experience. It’s like you’re looking at the site of an expensive restaurant where you’d be lucky to get a reservation in a year or so. It definitely seems like the kind of app that you’d need some cash to get the full experience.

    The app also promises that you won’t find any Sugar Baby or Sugar Daddies on the site as everyone is income verified … I, however, find that to be difficult to believe. While this site doesn't bill itself as a sugar dating site - like Established Men - but let's be honest… People who are looking to live that >sugar life aren’t going to let a simple rule stop them. I'm sure that this site would work perfectly well for someone looking for that.

    You do however have to have a current member vouch for you to get in… this is where a lot of people are going to find themselves stonewalled. I understand that everything is meant to be closed and exclusive, but this isn’t the kind of exclusivity that can be bought… you’re going to have to know somebody to get in.

  2. Features:

    The app seeks to connect people with similar interests and similarly luxurious lifestyles. While it seems that you can’t fly as a sugar baby on this site, I’m sure that with a clever enough lie you can figure it out.

    This site offers services to people who are looking to date women, seniors or find an interracial relationship. It seems that this app really is in the business of giving the rich what they want… but then again so is Cupid dating network which isn’t nearly as exclusive and isn’t as expensive either. The do however operate a ton of different niche sites (think interacial, asian, black, mature, etc) but don't charge nearly as much as this site.

  3. Pricing and membership details:

    While it’s free to use Luxy Basic, you’re going to have to upgrade if you want to skip the vouching process. This is great for those people who have the means to pay for this app but don’t necessarily have a friend who uses the app.

    Just the name, “Luxy Black” is a symbol of how gosh-darn concerned they are with their luxurious and exclusive image. Obviously you’re going to have to either be vouched in or you’re going to have to upgrade to use the site… however, updating seems to be the only way to be able to message anyone and swipe through as many people as you’d like.

    As expected, this app is not cheap. Either it’s going to cost you $100 a month for one month or $60 a month for six months (this comes to a onetime payment of $360). I don’t know about you, but I will not be upgrading considering that is almost as much as my rent!

  4. Pros:

    • Exclusive as all hell: If you’re looking for people who are actually respectable members of society – or at least function well enough (and look good enough) - to pass in upper-class society, then this is going to be the app for you.

      If your budget is big and your tastes expensive you should really get on here. There are plenty of women who are looking to date a well-to-do-man, so there is no shortage of female profiles on this site.

  5. Cons:

    • Too exclusive : While the exclusivity of this app seems like the main selling point, you’re either going to have to pay to get in or impress enough users to get vouched in. While this might be something you’re interested in doing, it may be more difficult for some men and women.

      Even if you have the money, you aren’t necessarily going to find a date. There’s not guarantee, there’s no promise of finding love, and there’s no refund for those who strike out.

      Plus I don’t see how it’s a “matchmaking” service if it functions as every other dating app online apart from the steep paywall.

    • Only good for city dwellers: Okay, so let’s say you’re into this app… but you’re the kind of rich guy who doesn’t like the fast-paced live of a city dweller. Well, you’re probably screwed since most rich people congregate around metropolitan areas. For instance, when I signed up for the site, I was in Northern California and the closest man on the site was in San Diego… while he’s still in the same state that’s hundreds of miles away.

      Even if I was to drive or hop on my private jet (because I’m a millionaire remember), that’s still quite a hassle to go through just to get coffee.

      If you’re posted in a penthouse in a city center, this app is probably a good choice. However, if you’re anywhere but a big city, this may not work for you.

  6. Conclusion

    While I’m a big fan of exclusivity especially when it comes to dating apps, I’m not super sold on this one. I understand that a lot of people are willing to buy their way into a community and date long distance… but I am not one of those people. I'm a fan of Seeking Arrangment, myself.

    I do recommend this app to people who have the financial means to use the site and are willing to travel to meet their matches. But I don’t think that this site is anything special.

    3.5/5 Stars.
