It’s a new year, a new decade, so why not make it a new you?

Yes, it’s a cliche but what better excuse to turn over a new leaf than a new era. This also applies to your love life, if 2019 wasn’t your year for finding that special someone then now’s the time to turn that around.

What’s important is to not fall back into old habits, assess your habits from the previous year and move forward from there. The most common cause of dating failure last year comes down to the simple fact that not enough people were meeting in real life. Sure, you can download an app, swipe to your heart’s content and send the odd message when you fancy, but unless your meeting dates in real life it’s a waste of time.


This is where The Inner Circle comes in. They’ve completely broken down the modern dating experience to pinpoint where we’re all going wrong, and the conclusion is exactly that. No one goes offline. Their solution? Creating an app that’s designed completely with real-life dating in mind.

Firstly, they reject the idea of ‘pocket dating’. This is the pointless practice of messaging endlessly that most apps encourage. All it does is create a cycle of matches fizzling out and leading you straight back to square one again.
The Inner Circle gears you up for offline meetups as soon as you download and sign up. 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 favourite 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 meeting in real life.

Finally, and actually the most impressive are The Inner Circle dating events. Hosted in cities all over the world, 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. Make 2020 your year to find the one.
