The Inner Circle is an invite-only dating platform
The Inner Circle
Nothing says exclusivity quite like an invite-only community. The Inner Circle is a dating platform where you have to be connected with an existing member as part of the screening process. You’ll be invited to events and parties every month, where you can meet some of the service’s 270,000 members. You may have to wait to be approved, though, as the company claims to have 250,00 applicants on its waiting list.
Download the app from the Google Play Store and App Store.
If you’re a celebrity or social media star looking for love, but fear regular dating sites could expose you to a media frenzy, there’s an app tailored just for you. Called Raya, the dating service can only be accessed if you pass a thorough application process. Applicants must stand out from the crowd, the company says, so single Nasa scientists and film stars are more likely to be allowed in to this exclusive community.
Raya is only available on the Apple App Store. Subscriptions start at £5.99 per month.
You shouldn’t lower your standards when you enter the online dating world, says The League, an app that aims to find you a partner who matches your every preference. Applicants have their Facebook and LinkedIn profiles screened before they’re allowed in. This is done to both clarify their identity and make sure their profile isn’t visible to co-workers, friends or family members. Only people who meet your exact preferences can see your profile and you must respond to match requests within 21 days to have a chance of a date.
Even millionaires can be lonely but the bad news is that many of them are looking for someone with a similar bank balance, rather than hoping to rescue the rest of us. Luxy verifies its users by checking their tax return forms, ensuring they’ll only be in contact with people who are equally well heeled. The service says that one out of every two members is worth over $ 500,000, while 41% of members boast a wealth of $ 1m-plus.
Unlike Tinder and Plenty of Fish, where users chat to singletons online before meeting up in person, Social Concierge users can only meet people when they are offline. The company organises private parties for members to get together, so the app is only used to register for upcoming events. Users are in their 20s and 30s, “well-educated” and with “a passion for what they do,” says Social Concierge. Much like other exclusive services, applicants are vetted before they’re allowed in.
The app is available to download on the App Store for £30 per month.
