If you're sick of swiping left on Tinder, you may want to turn your attention to a new online dating platform that, in theory, should provide a selection of only the best looking Kiwi singles searching for love.
"Attractive World" is a dating service aimed at those aged 25 and above and works by fellow members deciding if you're hot enough to join. If you are given the green light, you'll be able to check out others' profiles for free. But if you want to message them and look at their pictures - which may or may not include common Tinder-type blunders such as "man with fish" or "which woman in the group of five are you?" - you'll have to pay for a subscription.
That's right, it's not enough to be good looking. You'll have to be a bit cashed up too.
Depending on how confident you're feeling, you can sign up for a range of premium subscriptions with packages costing $49.95 for a month, $29.95 a month for three months or $19.95 a month for a six month subscription.
In the soft launch phase of the app, rolled out in Australia and New Zealand, the company claim while there was a high influx of applicants, only three in 10 made it through the "rigorous, community-driven selection process."

According to Attractive World CEO Jeronimo Folgueira, "The online dating industry is constantly growing. That being said, there is a serious lack of options for young Kiwis looking for a genuine relationship."
Folgueira says those signed up to Attractive World "have the chance to find the most interesting, like-minded singles, regardless of their geographic location.
"The rigorous, community-driven selection process only lets the crème de la crème through, making Attractive World the ideal choice for New Zealanders looking to meet people with the same relationship goals."
The concept isn't new on the international dating scene. It was founded a decade ago in France and is part of the Berlin-based Affinitas GmbH group. It operates in more than 25 countries worldwide, and also runs global dating brands EliteSingles and eDarling.
