With 2018 right around the corner, there are more than a few things we would like to leave behind us so we can have a fresh start to the new year. Regular, boring, old dating apps are definitely included among those things.
When you’ve decided you’re ready to get back into the dating scene, or when you’ve realized you desire someone special in your life, the last feeling you want to experience is dread. Yet, that is what usually transpires when faced with the option of using dating apps or sites to find your match. Normal worries include not knowing if the potential person is capable of adulting (pays bills, has a sense of responsibility, understands the word ‘no’), or if they even are who they claim to be.
Luckily for you, there is a new player in the dating app game, and they take all the dread, fear, and “ugh” feelings out of the picture so you can focus on what really matters- finding your partner!
Here are 4 reasons you should ditch your regular dating app and try Inner Circle instead:
1. Cheaters are EVERYWHERE.
It’s true. There are some shady people out there, and knowing who is being honest can be a difficult task without all the information. For example, research firm GlobalWebIndex discovered that 42% of Tinder users already had a current partner. According to a report from The Guardian, “the research claims that 30% of Tinder users surveyed are married, while another 12% are in a relationship.” Looks like some “singles” aren’t really single after all.
2. Fake profiles waste your time.
One thing you will notice when you use an online dating app is the abundance of spam profiles, or bots. These fake accounts match you or get matched with you based on almost nothing, then they message you to try and lead you to a website where you can purchase a product or pay for a service. Nothing quite like thinking someone want’s to hang out, only to realize it is a bot for a psychic hotline.
3. Receiving too many messages is a real problem.
According to an excerpt from a report by Vice, males who use dating apps are three times more likely to swipe right for a woman than women are to swipe right for a man, which results in a bombardment of messages. The report aslo found that “women on online dating sites like OkCupid or Plenty of Fish can get anywhere between 50 to 100 messages in less than an hour.”
4. Harassment and safety concerns are growing.
It’s not easy to protect yourself in the online world, so when you use a specific company you expect them to be able to provide some sort of assurance that you and your information will be kept safe. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Apps like Tinder and Bumble do not provide safety and security for their users, though their terms of service state otherwise. Several instances of women being harassed through fake profiles have been reported, and the end result is that there is no guarantee it won’t happen again using the same app.
So, if you’re ready to dip your toes in the dating pool, but don’t want to go through the hassles or worries of unsafe, unfiltered, and over-spammed dating apps, try the Inner Circle. It’s free to register!
