#ForeverAlone No More: Meet Single People & Find Love With This Mumbai Group

Shortcut

A fancy singles club, Aphrodite skips your regular apps or website. Instead, it’s a rather “you’ve got mail” invite to their events.

Why The Secrecy, You Ask?

Aphrodite Singles Club was launched in Mumbai with the sole aim of helping people find love in the age of Tinder. According to this report, Nitya Arora {owner of the jewellery brand Valliyan} founded it along with her partners, Shaan Khanna and Hanna Stromgren.

They don’t do your regular upload-some-profile shenanigans. It’s simple and sweet – just how romance on New York’s streets was. All you need to do is mail your photograph along with details such as your city of residence, age, and a line or two about yourself. How do they filter out people?

If you can hang out with them, you can come to the party aka the event. The idea is to curate the people for the event based on certain traits, and yet retain the exclusivity. If you don’t get the email, don’t worry. Perhaps make your bio cooler?

What’s Next?

They have already organised an event in August at Café Zoe, and in the future, they hope to organise age-wise events, an LGBT event, or events for people who enjoy similar activities.

Their next event is happening in mid-October and the location will be disclosed when the time comes. If you’d like to give love a try, you can email them at BoutiqueSinglesClub@gmail.com.

They charge anything between INR 1,000 to INR 10,000 depending on the scale, and venue of the event.
