The Dating Ring

. . .

Our team of matchmakers screen and set up dates for the best singles in New York City and San Francisco.

Dating shouldn’t feel like a second full-time job – and with us, it won’t. By maintaining the fastest growing and highest quality rolodex of singles on both coasts, we’re able to carefully curate the most compatible dates. We know that chemistry happens face to face. Our members spend their time offline on great dates – not online browsing through profiles.
