The Inner Circle is a dating app we covered a while ago and which received some ‘creative’ feedback, so we decided to give it a go and test it out for ourselves. The results? It actually sort of works! The Inner Circle is taking the opposite approach to regular dating apps and trying to get you off your phone as soon as possible by using IRL tips like hotspots and travel features, and hosting events that people actively recommended to us.
It is just a solidly good app with fewer random people. The Inner Circle is taking advantage of a screening process that makes sure they maintain a close network of people who are all in the same phase of life. We’re not talking about solely about bankers or trust fund babies, we found plenty of cool creative people among a variety of professions like teachers, nurses, students and etc.
The other thing that we liked about it was that The Inner Circle pretty much has all the benefits of other popular dating apps, like swiping around (Tinder), location search (Happn), selectivity (Once), but offers more straightforward connection where you can just write a person a message if you really like them, instead of waiting for a right match after 1000’s of swipes or likes.
Finally, we have to rave about the events. The Inner Circle host monthly events ranging from extravagant rooftop parties to after work cocktails at fun and quirky venues around the world. And unlike most singles parties these events aren’t full of desperate lonely cat people, in fact quite the opposite. We spoke to Nick who has now been to three of their past events: “Imagine a party where everyone is not only hot, but also actually has a passion and excitement for life.” Well that sounds like a party we want to go.
So we get that The Inner Circle is not for everyone, (especially not for the moaning kind), but we guess ultimately that’s the point. But if you’re looking to meet other life loving singles then sign up to The Inner Circle and see if it is for you. It’s free to register:
