Almost every single person I know has at least one dating app installed on their phone, and for the past three years I have too.
I’ve had a huge mix of experiences over this time – some good, some awful, and some memories I’ll be stuck with forever…
I’ve teamed up with The Inner Circle to make four crucial insights into online dating.
1) Study their profile
The age of swiping has meant we often don’t give everyone the attention they deserve. The Inner Circle is different. By manually screening each new member, they ensure profiles are genuine and honest. You share info about yourself, can see info about others, so you can dodge red flags and avoid any catfish!
2. Make genuine conversation
Go beyond “how are you?”, good conversation should be easy with the right person, but it can sometimes be a struggle to know where to start.
With detailed profiles, take the time to look at their interests, places they’ve been, ask about photographs etc. The Inner Circle lets you see exactly what people are into, and you can compare your likes to see how well matched you are.
If you’re too shy to make the first move, you can always send someone a ‘wink’ to get their attention.
3. Be brave, meet up
Conversation going well? Take control and meet up! Be bold, if they’re not making the first move and you’re interested and keen, don’t be afraid to ask them first. Choosing where to go shouldn’t be hard either. On The Inner Circle, you can use the “spots” feature, which lets you log your favorite hang outs, so you can see where you have in common with your potential date. No more floundering about – get straight to getting to know one another.
4. Always follow it up
Successful date – don’t leave it more than a day to message. The follow up is what turns a great date into a great relationship.
If it didn’t go so well, or you’re still too nervous to meet up, The Inner Circle is here to help by hosting singles events in cities all across the world every month.
From rooftop parties in London to poolside escapes in LA, take the pressure off yourself and meet an attractive eligible single in a fun and exciting environment!
