When you’ve had your heart broken, the best way to get over someone is ‘to get under someone else’ say your friends. But you’re just so afraid of getting hurt again. ‘Go on an app! It’s digital, you’ll be safe there!’ they tell you. But the thought of a hollow Tinder encounter makes a life-long date with a monastery seem appealing. You’ve sat it out, done some healing and then the time comes when you really are ready to meet someone else – only, which app will help you navigate a robust but newly bruised heart?
One where people are looking for mutually respectful relationships, whatever length works out best. One where people are accountable through mutual friends, and won’t dupe you because they know word will get back. One where ghosting and zombeing are for little monsters, not smart, savvy individuals who have no interest in wasting their own time or anyone else’s. And one where the members know that people that have been heart-broken need to be straight-forward and caring in their communication. That app is The Inner Circle.
Take Oli Hewitt, Oli Hewitt, a London-based recruitment specialist who met his fiance and mother to his baby son on The Inner Circle more than a year ago. ‘After a terrible break-up, I genuinely didn’t know where to start again. A friend recommended The Inner Circle on the basis that people were so straight-forward and respectful and I thought, what the hell. Before I met my wife-to-be, I went on a number of great dates with other people. Even though we obviously weren’t compatible, I never felt as though i’d wasted my evening because everyone I met on the app was successful, smart, warm and emotionally sound. The Inner Circle gave me my dating confidence back.’
