ridiculously high standards. – Prospective members may download the app and

This is not sustainable
I’ve never written a review of an app before. I do hope the app’s creators take the criticism to heart because I think it is a cool idea and has potential. As it is right now, the app is essentially a scam. You’re told it’s “exclusive,” that there’s a “long waitlist,” and that only “20%” of applicants are accepted.” This is effective marketing, actually - the aura of “exclusivity” makes you more likely to pay fees once you’re finally “accepted.” It is of course against their interest to deny anyone, because if they “accept” you, you must pay to use it. An app like this is only going to spread through word of mouth among Jewish circles, and I don’t know why anyone would recommend it to a friend right now. It is clearly not just for people with high standards - that becomes evident quickly. They limit the swipes you get then charge you for more (I guess it’s small, but still insane). In a vacuum, the app interface itself is pretty low quality and worse than any other dating app I’ve seen. The only novel feature, the matchmaker, is unresponsive and acts like they don’t want to help. I get that offering a free trial might expose the fallacy of “exclusivity,” but securing people’s short term payments does not outweigh the drawbacks of forcing people to pay for a service that just isn’t worth paying for at all. As it is right now, I don’t see this app lasting very long. Time to get back to the drawing board.
Don’t Do It
Please read the other bad reviews of which there are many. This is a total SCAM. They claim the app is different and exclusive. You have to be “vetted” but I have a feeling they just let everyone in. The interface is a replicate of all of the other swipe dating apps you’re familiar with, but it lets you swipe on about 5-10 people and then locks you out unless you throw down more money! They claim this is because you should take the time to read through everyone’s profile before making your swipe decision. You get a few more swipes the next day, but then after a few days I started getting people from all over the country. The app has a filter function but in chatting with the “matchmaker” I found out it doesn’t actually function. I live in Los Angeles and I have been getting folks who live in Georgia, NC, NYC. During a pandemic this seems ridiculous. My guess is that they don’t have a lot of members yet probably because it’s a play to pay app. I asked for a refund and they never wrote me back so I’m leaving my very first review for an app because I feel totally cheated. Lost $90+ on this. Wish it was cool but I’m EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED.
Really wanted to like this app because I’m sick of all the other ones. I see many reviews about it being best if you live in NY or LA, which makes sense. However, I do live in LA and all my potential options are usually in NY. The guys are super cute there but I’m not tryna move to the east coast. It’s super frustrating especially because we’re limited in how many people we get every 6 hours, so it just feels like a waste each time like we were lied to and cheated out of something. They really need a location filter option, I think that’s the biggest issue. They say they’re really exclusive and only accept 20% of applicants, but there inherently lies another problem— if they’re not accepting people, how can I have more options? Seems backwards. I really wanted to give this a try but very disappointed. Or LA has run out of potential NJBs. Could just be that. When I finally do have a match, no one messages or responds.
Well, this app has certainly not lived up to my expectations in any way. It's no different then the other apps, frankly it's worse. I get like two people (who are usually nothing like I asked to be matched with nor do they even live on this side of the country) and then am told they don't have enough matches to meet my preferences. I also don't see how this is an app for "people with extremely high standards". (Sorry to say there are very few people I find remotely attractive and the profiles don't really give you much insight on a person) As my brother said, seems like a scam, that someone had a connection at the New York Times to get that article posted. Really disappointed, I was very excited about being approved and hoped it would amount to something more. Also glad I paid $4.99 for legitimately TWO more swipes. Y'all had a good idea... poorly executed. I most likely will NOT be paying for the service after my free trial. If I had paid for this I would insist on a refund.
Jewish Grandmother Approved
I never thought I’d want to tell my grandmother that I go on dates with strangers from the internet. EVER. Even after the 100th holiday where I am shamed for being single. Even through the constant family disappointment that there are no bar or batmitzva parties to attend 13 years from now. But THEN I got word of this incredible app. Where I get to meet up with MY PEOPLE. So at Chanukah the other week, I decided to buckle up and just tell her about it. And she is ECSTATIC at the thought of me going out with some dashing nice Jewish boys. Heck, she even goes through my matches and I didn’t even think she could use an iPhone! If you are considering downloading this app, do your ovaries and grandmother a favor and get it
Not worth spending money on
This app isn’t worth spending money on and I’m surprised they don’t have an option to try out a month without committing to 3 months. There aren’t many people in the Bay Area and should support some location preferences. I understand some are open to dating anywhere but as someone with a strong west coast preference, I have no interest in dating someone In New York or Florida. Lastly, of the limited app dating experience I’ve had in general, this is the least interaction I’ve seen. I’ve had many matches but zero responses or communication from men on here, and none of them have tried to message first either. Seems like a waste of money and time thus far. 2 stars here because the way they built profiles is good and I like how the app looks. The questions could use some more creativity though , they look like an exact copy and paste from hinge.
Not worth it
The app has all the appeal and touts potential, but at the end of the day, it’s a low key scam... 1. Matches appear from all over the country. It doesn’t matter where you are, your *precious* 5-10 swipes can be from anywhere. I am on the east coast and have received batches of people exclusively in California. 2. There is a claim that people are vetted and waitlisted, etc. If people are vetted and the app is meant to be aimed towards Jewish people, why are there people ostensibly posting in their profiles that they aren’t Jewish? Seems like anyone can get through so long as they’re willing to pay 3. If you decide you still want to try this app, I highly recommend going for the shortest time trial for least amount of $$. Don’t get stuck being fed people who aren’t in your time zone for 6 months (during a pandemic?) and paying the literal price for it. 4. When I do have a match, no one writes or responds. There was an instance where I was chatting with someone and half of our conversation vanished (a bug?) and when I sent a follow up message days later, the disappeared text reappeared. This is a huge problem if messages aren’t being relayed to people the app is supposed to be connecting... 5. All the above aside, if you want to feel part of a quasi-exclusive community and money to throw, this totally is for you
Great app, gimme more
Amazing options on this app. However it only lets you see few options in between 6 hour gaps. I understand the idea behind choosing more thoughtfully. But it’s kind of long! New here though, so maybe I’ll get used to it and come to appreciate it. 🤷♀️
Good people but weak algorithm
I really wanted to like this app, and I will say that the caliber of people is generally much higher than what I’ve seen on every other app. While the limited swipes every six hours is annoying, I get the idea. However, what has made it a poor experience for me thus far is that after the first week, I stopped being shown any profiles of people from the NY area — NYC is a hub, so I know there should be more profiles from there, but instead every one I am being shown is from California or other random states in the Midwest or South. Since it is already difficult to match with people on here given the limited number of swipes, I would really appreciate if the majority (or even some at this point) of the profiles I’m shown were also NY-based people
The idea of this app is great - exclusivity and Jews. What more could we want? They’re ALWAYS available when you need them, the matchmaker is at your service at all times, and it’s a great way to meet not only significant others but friends in the Jewish community as well. I think people get angry and blame the app when they don’t find a match but it takes time, effort and energy. I don’t think it’s the fault of the app - it’s user error! Give it some more tries, go on a few more dates - the right person WILL come and the Lox Club is honestly the perfect way to make this happen. This app is big and will continue to grow. I recommend the download!
The other members on here are obvi attractive but surprisingly have impressive careers and seem down to earth (IE not just instagram models). The application process was quite a wait but so far def worth it. also I love the matchmaker feature!! I didn’t expect it to be a real human so that was pretty dope. She/he gave me advice on how to spruce up some stuff on my profile. I saw 3 or 4 celebrities on her but “no screenshots allowed” which I understand. One request though, can you add timestamps on messages? Also how do I get more referral passes? I’d like to refer some friends since they applied and haven’t got in yet.
I have been a Lox Club member for a couple weeks, however I really only used the app for a few days. About 4 days in, I started getting profiles from people living in LA and Chicago, while I am based in NY. The app is also misleading about being exclusive, as most members I saw did not fit the type that was advertised. Once I tried to delete my account and data, I learned that there is no way to do it through the actual app. Instead, you have to email them. After going back and forth on an email chain for a week, I was told they were not set up to delete accounts automatically and that it would take a time to delete my account and data (did not specify how many days/weeks). Do yourself a favor and avoid paying for this app. It is not even close to worth it.
I love the idea of this app but unfortunately it has not delivered. Like other reviewers have said, it has totally lost the “exclusive” vibe as I’ve now seen the same people I see on every other app. The biggest disappointment is that amongst the ~10 people I can see at a time, hardly any of them are in my city! I’ve written The Lox Club to ask about this, and the response I’ve gotten is just that they’re working on it. It honestly seems like they launched the app too soon, don’t have enough people on it, and haven’t figured out the kinks. Save your money for when it’s in a better place - I wish I’d done that but likely won’t renew my subscription after these first few months of being a member.
One of the worst dating apps
Heard about it from a friend, seemed cool so i applied. I was accepted a few weeks later. It makes you pay $35 a month before even being able to check out the app. I did it thinking it may be worth it, big mistake!! What a scam! They show you 5 people and then make you pay $5 to see more people, insane. Also, total lack of functionality and no ability to adjust location proximity to the few people you are looking at. This app is taking the lame, greedy, tech start up dork to the next level of sleezy. Layering on the fake story and hyping it as if its actually “different” and not just a mechanism to make easy cash for the founders. Dont wast your time on this crap, so bad.
New favorite dating app
I’ve been on Lox Club for over a month and I’m obsessed. So many cute, genuine guys I haven’t seen on other apps. Here for the hidden gems! I like that I can see people in my city and from all over. The matchmaker feature is also super helpful - I talked to the sweetest human who gave me some great advice about my profile. May or may not have spotted one of my favorite celebrities on the app...but you can’t screenshot so everything is private. Feels like a speakeasy.
