Tired of sifting through hundreds of profiles that don't match your exacting standards? Like a side of controversy with your dating main course? Then meet Luxy, a much-debated dating service that allows members to accept or reject new applicants based on appearance and financial status.

There's no beating around the bush here. Luxy is an elites-only dating platform that focuses on wealthy individuals seeking companionship with other high caliber singles. According to the company, its "successful and attractive" members include CEOs, lawyers, athletes, investors, athletes, actors, and other celebrities. In other words, Luxy is for the cream – and only the cream – of the crop.

The media hasn't been kind to the site. CNN called it “the Tinder app for snobs.” Business Insider led with "Tinder, minus the poor people." A spokesman for Luxy told The Guardian that the service is “certainly exclusionary.” Even Luxy's own press releases are designed to shock. At least two from 2015 proudly boast about rejecting “ugly and poor” applicants.

So the question is: does Luxy have anything going for it? At all?

Well, let's start with self-awareness. Luxy knows exactly what it wants to be and doesn't shy away from it. If that's the kind of dating experience you want, Luxy makes it easy to find. It begins with the aesthetic of the service. From the curving fonts to the black and gold color scheme, it's clearly designed to look expensive and exclusive. It also appears to have a surprisingly robust membership – provided all the profiles are real.

Despite the blatant focus on money, free accounts are available. Free members can create a profile by logging in with Facebook or signing up with email. The setup process is standard stuff, though Luxy allows you to add up to five of your favorite luxury brands and descriptive “Luxy tags” to your profile. Beyond that, Luxy profiles are sparse. This isn't a place that prioritizes deep compatibility.

Once you're signed up, you can view other profiles under the “Play” tab. Results can be sorted by a few options, but again, it's minimal. Luxy sorely lacks the extensive search filters that other dating sites have. There also isn't the option to add profiles to a favorites list. If you like someone, you either have to send a rose or, if you have a premium account, send a message.

As is often the case with dating services, communication on Luxy requires a paid membership. Luxy BLACK comes with perks like a VIP emblem on your profile, premium search options with Luxy TUNE, and the ability to read and reply to all messages. Some features can be purchased for smaller fees, like coins, bundles of roses and profile boosts. Luxy TUNE can also be purchased separately. If you like customization, the add-ons are a check in the pro column for Luxy. In the con column is the cost – Luxy BLACK memberships are on the more expensive end of the spectrum.

For an on the go experience, you can use the mobile app instead. Available for iOS and Android, Luxy's mobile apps offer far more action and options to users. Everything from the website is there, with the welome addition of several mobile-specific features. Under the “Moments” tab you'll find an Instagram-esque feed of users' photos. Under “Topics,” you can browse a selection of polls, questions, and discussions posted by other members.

If you're in the mood to play judge, try the “Vouch” function. Think of it like a Tinder swipe, but with greater consequences. “Vouch” allows current members to vote new applicates out or in. Luxy promises that you'll get more possible matches from the people you vote in after they are approved.

The biggest reason to use the app over the desktop site is simple: it's just better. For a service so heavily focused on finances, it doesn't seem like much money was invested in the site (just look at the garbled English on the FAQ page, for example). The app, on the other hand, both looks and functions like a dating service should in 2016. It's clearly the better Luxy experience.

Then again, is the “Luxy experience” worth it it in the first place? It won't appeal to everyone – the service has its drawbacks and some will find it unbearably snobby. But for the right kind of dater, Luxy exactly what Dr. Cupid ordered.
