There’s been much talk of Tinder, seems like Urban India is no longer relying on well meaning Punjabi relatives to help hook them up. From invite only communities, to smart curated phone apps, welcome to a brand new dating game, Delhi. And here are its leading players!

Truly Madly  

Think of Truly Madly as well meaning friends, you know the kind who actually might set you up correctly? The initial process is more or less the same, you sign up, answer a bunch of telling questions but where Truly Madly differs is in their filtering process. You’re allowed to scan through only those that they’ve handpicked for you, based on what you stated as likes and dislikes. If you like them, and they like you too, it’s a match! Savage Garden would be proud.

Aisle.Co

A paid for service; aisle.co is a members only closed community that allows mingling, for Indians around the world. As for membership, you can expect some strict standards, and the current user base stands at over 5000 members. The difference with aisle? It requires members to pay in order to be able to contact people, hopefully taking care of the bots. The application form does require certain specs, including height, weight, tattoos, piercings, likes and dislikes, that too on a sliding scale. Because we know a yes or no never actually cuts it.

A World Alike

Champagne soirees, sangria sundowners, and networking nights; sounds like a typical event organized by them. A World Alike is an invitation-only network of single, well-educated individuals with shared interests. Their agenda is not actually restricted to being able to date someone, but just so you can meet like-minded people {for whatever reason} in the labyrinth that is Delhi. The idea is to provide a secure, exclusive and discreet space for you to socialize and/or network. They have various membership plans, and will require you to actually send in an application, based on which they will interview and take the final call.

Floh

Floh models itself as a platform to meet a life partner, and not a dating service. What it does is connect like-minded, urbane and educated individuals to one another. Every member is carefully screened by its co-founders, as to ensure everyone on there is on a similar wavelength. Members can interact online and offline; where online is defined by your pre-curated Floh profile, and offline, well you take a guess. Floh also periodically hosts interactive events, where they facilitate interaction between members. As for what kind of events you can expect, once you’re chosen to be a member, think cook outs with celebrity chefs, vintage car rallies, dance sessions and brunches.
