When selecting a photo for one's dating profile, many of us might turn to friends for advice. The downside of this arrangement is that our friends love us and are therefore less likely (we suspect) to give an honest answer.
But over at dating app Inner Circle, users can get an answer from an impartial judge via the app's customer support team — which just happens to be a group of young mothers who work part time to field all your deep, dark dating questions.
By design, the six Amsterdam-based women who approve new users and handle support inquiries are all partnered women with children who, as a company spokesperson told us via email, offer their insights "from the perspective of people who conquered the dating game."
Inner Circle is an exclusive dating app for users who've been vetted by a member of the app's customer support team. The app launched first in Europe back in 2013, before making its way to the U.S. last year.
Users are accepted (or denied) based off their presence on at least three social accounts, and the goal is to minimize the number of jerks on the platform. As a spokesperson for Inner Circle told us last year, "Bottom line: in a sea of ghosting and zombie-ing, it's not looks, job title, or talents that mark you out as special, but manners."
