This dating app is breaking the rules to get you off your phone… and on a date

By

Most of us spend way too much time on our phones—phone makers are even releasing a slew of apps and updates to show us just how much time we're wasting.

Dating apps are some of the worst offenders, swiping away hours of every day. This is why The Inner Circle's approach is disrupting the game. By getting rid of swiping and gamification tricks to hook you on the app, it's designed from the ground up to get you outside and on a date as fast as possible.

It achieves this through three steps:

First, as soon as you open the app you only see singles that are already a quality match. Each user is verified by a real person before being shown, profiles are then shown to each other based on their lifestyle and interest match, so you only see people that you would have swiped right on anyway, saving you a lot of time and bad experiences.

Second, every feature on The Inner Circle is about meeting in real life. It has the most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants in its "Spots" section, and they're even ranked by popularity with other users. You can even see who shares your love for the same hip bar and connect to them directly and invite them for a drink there.

Thirdly, and most successfully, it hosts its own exclusive member events. These aren't the awkward speed dating nights you've had nightmares about, they're full-blown parties with hundreds of single's partying in the most sought after venues.

This is why The Inner Circle is proving so disruptive, it's where you can find a match in minutes and have all the tools to setup a date on the spot. Don't like chatting at all? You can gain access to events in seconds and won't have to wait for someone to show up in real life.
