Our philosophy

We believe that online dating should be exciting. It should be empowering. It should be real. That’s why The Inner Circle has created a global vibrant community of like-minded singles.

We strive to deliver a quality experience for each member, ensuring you meet the people you want to meet. You should not have to swipe endlessly. This is why our community has an application process for new members to join, resulting in a diverse community, full of inspiring and ambitious singles who are on the same page in life.

We designed a social dating experience where shared values and mutual interests result in authentic connections.

But that’s not all we do. Relationships are more than just a profile. We take the online, offline. Hosted in some of the most sought-after venues around the world, we put on exclusive monthly events, meaning matches can become experiences, and your real-life love story can begin…

Our story 

The Inner Circle is the brainchild of David Vermeulen. In 2012, after a long term relationship came to an end, he registered for an online dating website for the first time. Within days of joining, he deleted his profile. He found the online dating world to be too concerned with amassing quantity rather than providing a quality experience for each user.

This inspired David to create his own dating platform, one tailored to the lives of like-minded singles. A community that cultivates authentic connections between members.
