Oh no, it’s finally happened, London is following NYC and it looks like the dating net is becoming heavily weighed in favour of the fellas! Bad new for single ladies, when it already feels like decent blokes are far and few between in the capital. I’m a big fan of The Inner Circle - the exclusive dating site where successful and attractive people meet, so I was interested to read they’ve taken radical steps to tackle the problem! …
Exclusive dating app and platform The Inner Circle, has made the controversial decision to ban female applicants for one month, to improve the ratio of males to females.
The Inner Circle’s London user base has the widest gender gap in comparison to Amsterdam, Barcelona and Paris. Only 37% of the 18,000 members are male, against an astounding figure of 63% females, bucking the trend and common belief that dating apps are male dominant.
The month-long ban will occur from 02 September until 01 October 2015 in order to restore parity in numbers.
Women in professional careers are currently applying in bulk due to the quality of male users and because of the trustworthy environment that The Inner Circle provides. This ban will provide London’s high-flying males a chance to enter a dating community filled to the brim with successful and driven females.
CEO David Vermeulen says: “We feel this peculiar imbalance has occurred because of our strict curation. The Inner Circle plays host to males who are professional, young and successful which explains the soaring female user figure. I never expected that London would follow NYC.”
But follow it has and with all those hot guys on the books, all I can say is …. roll on October 1st!
The Inner Circle is one of the most exclusive dating platforms to arrive on the London dating scene. The website and app caters to some of the capital’s most successful and high flying singles. The Inner Circle is a vibrant network for like-minded individuals and hosts a high end, exclusive community with an impressive following of up-and-coming and driven professionals.
