I use LinkedIn as a dating app – I want A-grade men & wish I could filter height | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed an unconventional alternative to using dating apps as she searches for a high earning man. 

Candice Gallagher, who lives in Singapore, explained to her over 40,000 TikTok followers that she is looking for A-Grade men. 

The British expat revealed that networking website LinkedIn has proven to be a great alternative to traditional dating apps such as Tinder or Hinge because it allows her to filter searches by occupation and education.

“Number one I can filter for education – MBA, baby,” she says in a clip posted to TikTok.

“Number two I can filter by industry. I’m looking at doctors, lawyers, finance bro. Number three I can filter by country, very important.”

Candice is seen wearing a statement floral dress as she walks down a busy street and gushes about the benefits of using LinkedIn to meet men.

However, the TikToker who is on a mission to try 10 dating apps in 10 weeks, admits the site does have its disadvantages. 

“Unfortunately I’m unable to filter by height but at least there are very good looking photos that I can do some height analysis on,”she says.

The post has racked up over 70,000 likes, however many commenters have argued Candice is using the employment focused networking site inappropriately.

“People are not on LinkedIn looking for that. That’s definitely not the place. People are looking for job opportunities. Fully disrespectful,” one wrote.

Another said: “They don’t list marital status so you could be hitting up married blocks”

A third added: “Aren’t you worried about them reporting your account? If the genders were reversed, this would be really weird.”

Candice revealed in a follow-up video that using LinkedIn as a dating app has left her paranoid.

“Ever since I posted on TikTok that I’m using LinkedIn to find my next date, anytime, anyone adds me on LinkedIn now I think to myself ‘are they asking to connect with me for romantic reasons or for business reasons’. I think I’ve unleashed a beast,” she says.

A stream of male followers commented asking Candice to connect on LinkedIn.

This comes after a LinkedIn spokesperson told Insider that making “romantic advances” goes against their policies. 

They said: "Romantic advances and harassment of any form is a violation of our rules, and our policies include detailed examples that show what kind of content does not belong on LinkedIn.

"Members can report any instances of harassment on LinkedIn and signal to us that such behaviour is unwanted, allowing us to take action."
