It’s the most wonderful time of the year… to rethink the way you date.

Genuinely, it is. 

You might be wondering what we’re talking about. It’s not a ‘hot girl summer’ nor is it the start of the cuffing season. However, this time of year is party season, and if you’re single, it’s pretty damn fun. But if, like most people, you spend most of your time swiping and not actually going on dates… something needs to change.

If you’re not sure where to start, the obvious answer is dating apps. They’re literally your fast track ticket out of single-town, but why even with all the different apps we have on offer, do people still not meet in real life? 

Because dating apps encourage pocket-dating. The pointless practice of messaging endlessly until your matches fizzle out and you’re back to square one again. The solution? Offline dating apps. Genuinely. Inner Circle is the app that’s flipped online dating on it’s head and rather than coaxing you into hours of swiping and chatting, encourages offline meet-ups as quickly as possible.

It may sound weird, but right  from when you set up your profile you’re prepared for offline meet-ups. By manually verifying each new member, the app  makes sure that no one is worried about being catfished or tricked by any other users. Everyone is genuinely who they say they are and their pictures are up to date. It means finding that person on your first date is as easy as possible. 

What’s also unique is the ‘spots’ feature. This is a user-curated list of venues that have been tried and tested for first dates. Basically it means setting up a date is effortlessly simple. There’s also an option to check out your favorite places and see who else likes to go there, you already have that much in common you can skip the chatting and ask to meet. Another genius shortcut to IRL. 

Finally, (and actually the most impressive) are Inner Circle dating events. They vary from underground house parties to rooftop cocktail classes, and are always a sell-out. They’ve even started hosting pop-up festivals, it’s any single person’s dream and a sure way to meet someone special in real life. It’s officially party season at the moment, so why not change that to partner season and start meeting new people.

All you need to do is sign up online, then get meeting offline. Give Inner Circle a go here for free
