Meet The Dating App Where You Can Meet People IRL

So, there’s a dating website in town that you might not have come across before. And it goes by the name of The Inner Circle. 

We’ve tried it out for ourselves, and now we’re here to give you a heads up. Well, us single ladies have to look out for each other, right?

The idea behind Inner Circle is that it’s a little more exclusive. You need to have your profile approved before you can start looking through prospective dates. This might seem a little scary, but the aim seems to be to stop serial swipers from just collecting matches like trophies (did someone say Tinder?). 

Because, let’s be honest, we all know someone like that, right? 

Inner Circle claims that it’s ‘aimed at successful, ambitious and like-minded singletons in the capital.’

That’s the catch, guys. It’s been launched in London, although it also boasts members from other cities around the globe.

So, once you’re in, you can build your own profile by uploading photos of your choice, but there’s a lot more sections to fill out. The idea is to give users more of a sense of what you’re like as a person; what you do in your spare time, your job and whether you’re a carnivore – because, that’s very important. No, seriously, it is. 

This feature means that, in theory, you’re connecting with someone because of something that runs a little deeper than just a super hot selfie. 

Profiles pop up on a feed, and you can view according to who’s online now, browse new members and also search by location.

Something else to note: ANYONE can send you a message. Of course, you don’t have to reply, and we’ve got zero harassment messages to report, but it’s worth baring in mind.

The best thing about Inner Circle is their events. They host after-work drinks and dinner parties at different locations once a month, allowing members to meet offline. You know, like the good old days.

We popped along to one of them, and it was relaxed and friendly. Basically like being in a normal bar, but with the advantage of knowing that everyone in the room was single. 

It’s available online, and as an app on iPhone, Apple Watch and Android. The App is free to download and use, but there’s an option to pay for an upgrade if you want to.

So, if you venture into The Inner Circle, do let us know how you get on…
