“If all a Raya date is going to get me is one more Instagram follower, well, I just don't need that in my life.”My experience has been somewhat similar.I’ve been on Raya for a year, but it’s the only dating app that I’ve never successfully met anyone through, compared with Tinder, Happn, and Bumble, which have all led to various degrees of dating, friendship, and casual sex.It’s not like Linked In, where everyone understands that you're there for work, and you can apply for a job.Instead, Raya creates the promise of something romantic, but it’s actually just people trying to be around other cooler people.” He shrugged.Rather than being restricted to dating within your neighborhood, like the commoners of Tinder, Raya’s users are global citizens—in a special bicoastal club.People on Raya don’t take the subway; they fly to meet each other.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.
Obviously, part of the reason we all want to be successful is so we can fuck better people. But to institutionalize sex-as-networking is pretty disturbing.
It’s the Soho House world of elitism: They want to draw young, cool artists, but they actually just attract rich people, and dudes in advertising who collect vintage cameras as decorations.” As for the girls on Raya? “It’s an endless stream of photos of girls doing splits on the beach, or a photo from the one time they modeled for, like, Rawanastan or something.”Alan’s main pet peeve about Raya is that, the few times he met girls through the app, what he’d thought was genuine flirtation turned out to be a networking ploy—they were just actresses who wanted work.
