Ever dated online? If yes—and let's face it, it's probably yes—you're bound to have a treasure trove of horror stories. Although the internet has the power to connect singles with thousands of potential matches, casting such a wide net poses the threat of really...scratching the bottom of the dating pool. Solution? It would be the stuff of miracles if someone could ensure that these near-strangers were more up to snuff. A stable career and good looks are nice, but how about someone who also knows how to hold down a conversation? (Nobody wants to do all the talking.)

The Inner Circle is the latest dating app shaking up the NYC scene, and unlike the competition, it values the quality of its users over the quantity of it's left-swipeable singles. Like any club worth joining, each member is approved before they can match and message with others. It's not all about the size of your wallet or how cute your dog is—The Inner Circle's members are from all different walks of life and professions. They love their work. They honor their friends. And they cherish integrity, manners and the value of others' precious dating time—which is why they're on an streamlined app looking to connect with other smart and savvy singles.

Need even more excuses to get out of the apartment? The Inner Circle offers users access to some of the most exclusive parties and events at the world's most vibrant venues. So signing up is a passport to an even better kind of singledom (yes, this is possible), even while you search for a partner. Intrigued? Register to attend their next event in NYC at Liberty Hall, and join The Inner Circle for free today.
