Football fever has come and gone, and summer is in full swing meaning singles in Paris are focusing on what makes the city famous: romance.

Find out why smart, single expats and Parisians alike are flocking to The Inner Circle, an exclusive network that helps connect like-minded, compatible singles interested in a more selective approach to dating.

1. Because too much choice can be a bad thing

We’ve all been conditioned to believe that when it comes to choices, more is better. But at some point, too many choices means too much distraction – especially when it comes to romance. Why waste time (and money) pursuing someone who simply isn’t your type?

With The Inner Circle, you know that any potential match has been carefully screened by the Inner Circle team, who take care to help connect people who know what they’re looking for life.

2. You keep seeing the same people on Tinder/Happn/whatever

You know how it is. You swipe and swipe and swipe and swipe. Yet there’s no spark, no fireworks. You then try a new dating app only to realize you recognize every single person. Dang it all!

Yes, The Inner Circle is another dating app. But members must be approved, chances are you’ll see far fewer people you’ve already turned down. And the people you do see will seem to tick all your boxes. The Inner Circle is about quality, not quantity.

3. Sometimes...it doesn't just happen. (because Happn is French. Haha.)

There are a lot of people in Paris. If you commute 20 minutes to work you pass thousands of people. Who actually has time to check out passers-by and find that one stylish stranger in the crowd?

Sometimes romance needs a little hands-on help. Like narrowing down the dating pool to a group of go-getters who are out looking for the same thing you are.

4. You’re done ‘finding yourself’

At some point most people feel they’ve got some self-examining to do. Who am I? What do I want to do with my life?

But once you’ve figured all that out it can be frustrating to date someone who still lives with their parents and has been flitting between part-time jobs.

The lads and ladies on The Inner Circle have been carefully selected, and they’re high-achievers. Not arrogant jerks mind you; they’re simply doing a great job at whatever it is they do. Just like you, right?

5. Because French signals are confusing

Is that cute girl at the cafe flirting with you? Is the guy in the next building trying to seduce you? Or are they just being French?

The Inner Circle takes the guess-work out of dating in France – but in a classy, subtle way. Not like making your thumbs ache from a Tinder swiping session. No algorithms here – instead its real people looking at real profiles to help members find matches that work. Getting in is pretty much confirmation that you rock.
