The Dating Ring is a group matching site. The concept is to get people meeting one another by matching up users in groups of six and potentially start dating.
The site initially operated in New York City but has also launched in San Francisco.
The service works in the following way: Users have an initial consultation and specify availability. Then The Dating Ring sends users invites to group dates. The dates last about two hours at informal meeting places such as a bar or restaurant.
The hope is that by having a larger group all meet each other- there's a higher likelihood of two people hitting it off than there would have been with just people.
