7 Reasons to Ditch Tinder For This New Dating App

2017 Resolution #1: Make dating great again.

There are a few things we’d like to leave in 2016 (like exploding phones and iconic celeb deaths), and shoddy online dating definitely tops that list. Bottom line—Netflix and chilling with total strangers is just not an option this year.

So, we’re trying something new. Meet The Inner Circle, a dating app that uses both an application and invitation process to create a network of young, eligible professionals. The Inner Circle pre-screens all of its users, and the app has been through rounds of market testing to ensure a quality experience. With a wide variety of users—from lawyers to athletes to artists—you’ve got to have a real profile (i.e. complete and true) to get on the platform.

Thousands of people have been ditching their dating apps for The Inner Circle. Here’s why you should give it a shot, too:

1. Your selection of matches is dwindling, and you’re exhausted swiping left through, well, everyone.

You’ve “matched” every available bachelor/bachelorette in your 10-mile radius. You feel like you’ve seen the same faces and had the same 1000+ conversations about your favorite place to get a drink. It’s time to hit refresh on your dating pool.

2. You’re really not sure who’s cheating and who’s available.

Studies have shown that anywhere from 30% to 42% of people on other dating apps (in this case Tinder) are already in other relationships. NOPE.

3. Your patience for fake profiles is running thin.

We’ve all heard about Tinder and Bumble trolls. It’s hard to know when you’re actually connecting with someone or you’ve become the butt of a joke.

4.Your inbox is full of inappropriate (and no, not the good kind) DMs.

Here’s to NOT being sexually harassed online this year, right?

5. You’re interested in meeting new people for what they do and what they think about the world—not just what they look like.

Sure, there’s a lot to be said about physical attraction, but we all know dating is much more than looks and a clever social media bio. On The Inner Circle, users have already been screened for their actual interests, goals and careers. Most of them are hard-working professionals! #NOSCRUBS2017

6. You’re not looking for casual. And you’re not into serial dating.

The same-ole booty call approach gets boring. And eight pointless coffee dates in one week (with people who look nothing like their profile picture and don’t do anything they say they do)? AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME.

7. You’re tired of “matching.”

At the end of the day, your typical online dating app can feel pretty immature. If you’re ready to step your game up, meet new singles, or you’re just curious about other people out there in the world, The Inner Circle might be for you. You can sign up using the link below. It’s free, folks!
