If you spent much time floating around dating circles during the past decade, you’ll have felt a shift in the romance-vetting process: swiping left became the new, more ruthlessly efficient “it’s not you, it’s me”; sliding into DMs became a 2.0 version of an unwarranted BBM message; and those awkward, tense mixers supplanted grabbing coffee.
As such, the online-dating landscape has morphed into a tough puzzle to crack, with weary clichés and pinpoint-precise algorithms becoming the currencies on which it has come to sustain itself. But things are seemingly different when it comes to Inner Circle, an app that’s brought dating back to its basics, changing it from a chore to a choice by replacing swipes with actual meet-ups in order to help you find a potential partner sooner.
So if you’re looking to enter the scene, here’s all you need to know about Inner Circle’s next event.
Inner Circle takes Taste of London
For its latest effort to bring singles together, Inner Circle has teamed up with Taste of London, the five-day feasting celebration in Regent’s Park. Complete with pop-ups from some of the capital’s best eateries to gastro-driven events, including chef demonstrations and culinary-skill masterclasses, it’s an ideal way to enjoy London in the summer. And after you’ve dined around the globe, filled up on free samples and seen the capital’s finest chefs do what they do best, it may only be natural to find yourself wanting to meet a fellow gourmand to share the experience with – which is where Inner Circle can lend a hand.
As part of the festival, the Inner Circle team is setting up an impressive lounge area exclusively for single people. You can expect the perfect spot to socialise over fresh, flowing libations; live DJ sets; ice-breaker games, cocktail masterclasses and other offbeat, whimsical entertainment, including blind dates for those feeling especially daring. This gastro-themed day out, plus the chance to meet a like-minded epicurean who’s open to dating, is one to add to your summer-festival calendar.
Here’s how to get your free ticket
55,000 hungry Londoners are anticipated to attend, and tickets always sell out – accordingly, in their efforts to ensure that single people don’t miss out on this event full of feasting and mixing, Inner Circle is giving away 50 free Taste of London tickets to those who sign up below.
