A few nervous days went by and after some constant refreshing I received a message telling me I had been accepted. I had been given the password to the secret dating club for the rich and famous. You see, whilst they may sell it as a “dating app for people in the creative industry”, what they Raya puts Tinder to shame. And every screen on the app has your Instagram handle watermarked in the background – so if something gets out, they know who leaked it.From famous actors to DJs, restaurateurs to professional athletes, every single swipe brings you another supremely attractive or very successful singleton. I guess it’s to protect the A-listers’ privacy and keep the whole thing as exclusive as possible but boy, I really shat my pants the first time I got busted.Clare doesn't want to believe it, until she has her own vision that leaves her unsettled.When Mike's kids go missing, it's up to Clare to try to find them.

I shrugged, downloaded it, tapped in all my details including my Instagram handle (important as you’re judged not only on your content but how many followers you have) and listed my TV-star mate as my reference. Now I didn’t want anything more in the world than to be allowed into the cool group. In fact, if you try to screenshot anything, you get a pop-up notification with a warning that your IP address has been recorded.What’s the use of making a connection with someone halfway across the world? And that’s if you even get past “Hey.” Something a lot of Raya users lament is the fact that nobody bloody talks to you!Everyone is wanting the ego boost of a high-profile match but it seems nobody actually has the time for a chat…or any interest in meeting anybody in real life.Her ex-husband has contributed a bag of African coffee beans with alleged magical properties, and his octogenarian mother is giving out readings of the grinds.But Clare remains skeptical—until she receives a vision that helps her find a young model’s body in the park’s woods.
At least on Tinder you get the rather romantic “U out this weekend?
