Good news, London-based singletons! Inner Circle — the app designed for IRL dating — is giving out free first dates this summer.
From art classes to summer picnics, these freebies are designed to be fun and fuss-free — just the kind of laid-back environment you want when looking to spark a connection with someone new. And with Inner Circle picking up the bill, your quest for romance becomes a whole lot kinder to your wallet.
Here's how it works...
1. Register with Inner Circle
It all starts by signing up to Inner Circle and creating a free account. Once you've got the app, it's time to start exploring. Inner Circle does everything it can to banish endless swiping and instead get people mixing and mingling asap — from throwing outrageous parties for singles, to recommending top-tier spots for first dates, to matching people based on the venues that tickle their fancy.
2. Secure your "cheap thrill"
For the chance to bag yourself a free date, head to the 'Discover' section of the app and hit the 'Events' icon. Navigate to the "Cheap Thrills" competition page and leave a comment outlining your dream cheap date.
There are 250 freebies up for grabs, so you'll need to be quick about it to avoid missing out (though, on the plus side, the demand for free dates means you can expect lots of opportunities to chat — and maybe even flirt — when you go to register).
3. (Hopefully) hit it off with someone new
Recent research by Inner Circle found that 25% of singles feel more relaxed on cheap dates, and 29% believe that they take the pressure off. They've picked their freebies accordingly — think summer picnics, coffee dates, at-home art classes, fish and chips vouchers, and at-home cheese and wine nights.
With most of the planning taken care of, all you have to do is focus on having fun and getting to know someone new — no agonising over fancy menus or elaborate dress codes required!
