Navigating the Barrie singles scene

When you’re looking for a long-term partner in bars, at singles events and even at work, it can seem like a fruitless search. It’s not that there is a lack of Barrie singles – in fact, 41% of residents identify as such according to results from the Census.1 It’s more that it can be difficult to simply bump into someone that you like, let alone someone with whom you have a lot in common. Clearly, for single men and single women in Barrie, there is a need for an easier, more pro-active dating method (one that doesn't leave everything up to fate). And that's where looking online can help.

How online dating can help you

Turning to online dating makes practical sense for those Barrie singles serious about finding love. Reputable dating sites are the ideal place to be honest about the fact that you are looking for a real relationship and they’re the ideal tool to help you meet someone who is on the same page. It’s just a matter of choosing the dating site that will suit your needs.

Why try Barrie dating with EliteSingles?

At EliteSingles, we cater to single, professional women and men whose needs include the desire to find a mutually rewarding partnership with someone who gets them on multiple levels.

To help our members find just this, we use an in-depth personality test and look at individual relationship requirements to predict partner compatibility. Then we bring our members 3-7 match suggestions per day – matches that we think show the potential for something long-term.

Cozy cafés and romantic restaurants

For a first date, look no further than meeting for coffee. It’s a favourite date for our members, and, when you pick a café like Barrie Bean Counter, it’s easy to see why. Not only is their coffee to die for (you must try the Bianca Mocha), the atmosphere is just right for encouraging conversation and for helping that first date flow smoothly.

For a truly romantic evening, book a table at Painter’s Hall Bistro. The food here is utterly beautiful; both in terms of presentation and taste, but what truly elevates it to top date night material is the ambience. The soft lighting and thoughtful service are bound to create a really special evening – hopefully one for you and your date to remember for a long time to come!

Outdoor date ideas in Barrie

Barrie singles who love the outdoors will find no end of romantic, outdoor date ideas in this city. Sunnidale Park Arboretum is a particularly beautiful place to walk – think stunning green trees and bright flowers in spring and summer, followed by riotously coloured leaves and snowy, fairytale vistas in fall and winter.

Another option is a stroll around the waterfront, taking in Heritage and Centennial Parks along with iconic Barrie sights like Spirit Catcher. Come summer, it’s also worth keeping an eye on the schedule for Downtown Barrie's Lawn Chair Luminata – whether you’re into outdoor cinema or live performance, grab some lawn chairs and get ready for an amazing, quirky date night.    

Exploring date ideas in Ontario

Another perk of life in Barrie is the opportunity for day trips. Whether you like glamourous dates or more laid back ones, there's bound to be one to suit you. If you're heading into Toronto, for instance, you'll be sure of a good time – try taking your date in for a dinner date and a show or opt for one of our 69 top Toronto date ideas.    

For those who prefer a slower pace, why not try taking your date to one of the breathtaking beaches in Barrie or close by in Ontario? As well as lovely Lake Simcoe, there are gorgeous beaches on the shores of Georgian Bay – head out and kayak together, swim, or just watch the sunset. Ready to meet your next great date?
