As a result there is now no end of apps with the same aim of helping the best elements of other older dating apps, Inner Circle is the best.
Dating with a full-time career can be daunting, but Tinder isn't the only easy option. Find out why Elite Singles, Hinge, and work for working.
This abundance of choice has become a headache for many single people and has ultimately spawned a new breed of dating app: elite platforms unashamedly catering to professionals, the wealthy, the highly educated and celebrities. Luxy declined to provide figures on its profits or revenues, but Krause says it has been profitable since its first year of operation and now has more than 2m users. Those who apply to be accepted on to the app, which is free at the basic level, must first pass a hour process where they are vetted by existing members.
But he dismisses concerns about elitism.
But many people wish to find an equally successful partner. Luxy is serving these needs by providing the platform. Why not a dating app for successful people?
5 Best Dating Apps - Top Apps for Singles to Find Relationships
When it comes to love, money is of course not the most important factor Raffael Krause, marketing manager of Luxy David Vermeulen, its co-founder, says the idea for the platform came to him six years ago when he was single after spending a depressing evening trawling through dating websites. The sites were uninspiring, he had little in common with the dating profiles he came across and many of the women lived far away.
So he decided to launch something different. The Inner Circle is a cross between a dating app and an events company. It organises social gatherings for its members, such as polo tournaments, gallery openings or cabaret nights. It also has an app where users can organise dates and view the restaurant or holiday recommendations put forward by other members.
What we do is link people who are serious about dating. I encourage a diverse community, different kinds of people. Just another, vapid dating app. Another big problem with this is that there doesn't seem to be any real people. It's says no one is available with my filter settings, so I turned them off So I saw women, men, all ages. There were only 10 matches with no filter?
Two stars for the idea, but poor execution. Am I dreaming? I'm one of those weird people that actually likes to get to know a person's brain before I start a relationship with or have sex with them. Tinder and Bumble can work for finding thoughtful people, but it takes a really ridiculous amount of time filtering through inactive users and people searching for confidence boosts before you meet a person that you actually share any commonalities with.
