      As much as we hate to be the bearer of bad news, dating is a serious business that extends all 364 days of the year, outside of Valentine’s.

      But Vancouver gets a pretty bad rap when it comes to meeting new people, let alone a significant other.

      For this reason, dating apps can prove extremely useful. They provide the opportunity to cross paths with someone who might have otherwise been a stranger.

      Perhaps you’ve swiped right enough times to know that finding someone with whom you can envisage a serious relationship goes far beyond physical attraction—although that certainly helps.

      But it takes just one person to completely turn your love life around!

      One—professional, ambitious, well-rounded, normal—person.  If only there was a place where such people might gather.

      Well, let us invite you to . A streamlined dating app aimed at bringing together like-minded, intelligent go-getters, as part of an exclusive club for hetero-singles—without the hours of swiping and matching.

      Since the app’s launch in 2013, its membership has grown to over 750,000 in the U.K., Europe, the U.S., and, most recently, Canada. But The Inner Circle is about quality rather than quantity.

      And like any club worth being a member of, it’s not for everyone. You sign up by providing some basic details as well as your Facebook or LinkedIn profile. From there, the team at The Inner Circle is able to extract various data about a person and determine whether they are suitable for the app.

      “There is no vigilant criteria, but we’d probably say no to topless selfies,” says Charlie Chambers, Strategic Partnerships Manager.

      And there’s a pretty strict policy against married members.

      Basically, The Inner Circle does the pre-date research so that you don’t have to. And once you’re in, you can message all the other relationship-worthy singles you please, or attend any of the exclusive monthly events in locations around the world. We’re already excited for the get-together in Canada later this year.

      Call us romantics, but we think we might be falling in love.
