Raya is like the hipster, DJ-infested version of Fight Club.
The first rule of Raya: You do not talk about Raya.
The word has only leaked here and there, but as you read this, the likelihood is quite high that anyone associated with NYLON who has a Raya account is probably getting flayed by folks in black trench coats. However, the approval process is not exactly clear-cut.
Do not worry: The so-called Tinder for Illuminati has built its cache by flying under the radar. )Here’s what we know: The app has been around for over a year—and though it bills itself as a connector for “creative types,” it mostly has very beautiful folks with 5,000-plus Instagram followers. From what we can glean, you need to meet at least four out of the five following criteria in order to be accepted: Fortunately, a few of us have been blessed to have encountered some of these denizens of Raya (or, hey, maybe even got accepted to Raya ourselves, though rule number one prevents us from actually admitting that), and after being slightly starstruck by the company, we started compiling a list of famous people that popped up.
Well, not entirely radar-less, as there are plenty of handsome model types and TV show stars who must’ve gotten their invites from somewhere, and we have a hard time thinking there is some sort of famous person Listserv that exists. Which means, they are eligible and want to date you, me, each other, or maybe a famous cat.
While we have heard that these people have browsed Raya at one point over the past few months, they might not be there . Just kidding—we definitely confirmed their presence in one way or another, but with the app’s dedicated opacity, their mere presence may have vanished into a vapor made of lost dreams, smoke machines, and adorable photos of pit bulls.
Your wife might not personally hire a Private Investigator to follow you around.
But that doesn’t mean you’re not going to be outted by a Private Investigator.
The simple notification that a particular person perused your profile is often enough to get a conversation started.
You never know when a celeb might find what they’re looking for and delete their account, though.
(Notable fact: These profiles were connected to legitimate celebrity social media accounts, so we’re assuming they’re the real deal.)See the famous faces—looking for love just like the rest of us—we’ve seen while browsing Raya after the break, so you know who you might encounter should you get in.
Have success looking fling, serious relationship or just some casual sex for a good six months when i happened.
Determining individual is would be a vast improvement over its predecessor, the xbox 695 hard drive or on facebook for weekly.
