Only people educated at private schools can join a new dating app in the UK, The Independent reported.

The app, Toffee, was developed so that "people who hold similar views and values, and have shared the same life experiences (such as going through the same education system) are more likely to be attracted to each other and stick together," it states on its website.

 

News of the app has gained backlash and some people accuse the developers being elitist.

However, Toffee founder Lydia Davis feels people from these schools want to have a place of their own to socialise.

"So many people looking for a match say they want to meet someone that shares their interests and background," Davis, who is also a matchmaker at Mutual Attraction is quoted as saying by The Independent.

Education is not the only thing couples will be matched on. People will also use  "sliders" to measure how important sport is in a partner.

People who join also have to agree the information they declare is true otherwise they will be removed from the app.
