Meeting singles in Calgary
Calgary is a city whose reputation for welcoming warmth has long been established. What’s less commonly known is that this area is full of interesting Calgary singles – in fact, in the 2016 census, 41% of citizens aged 15 and over identified as such. To be single here is to know that there are many others just like you and that you are not alone if looking for love. However, knowing that such singles are out there doesn’t make them any easier to meet during your day to day life! Indeed, the difficulty of meeting men and women offline is the reason why so many Albertans, from single executives to single farmers, are heading online to make new connections.
The advantages to taking Calgary dating online
This city is full of busy professionals who have the desire to meet someone wonderful. The tricky bit is finding them: busy Calgary singles just don’t always have the time to browse through bars and head to single nights in search of love. This is where taking the search for love online can help – a dating site that brings matches to you can help you make the most of your valuable free time.
Of course, success on this front is made easier if you choose a dating site that suits your love priorities. If those priorities include seeking a lasting, committed relationship with someone who is into serious dating opportunities, then the site for you is EliteSingles. Not only do we have mature, interesting members, we’re one of the best dating sites for single professionals in Canada.
How does EliteSingles work?
EliteSingles aims to make the online process easier by offering a streamlined smart-profiling service that takes into account your personality, specific partner preference and ideal location. For us, it’s not just enough that you share the same location – we want to match you with those that suit you, whether that means meeting Calgary singles who are also interested in LDS dating, or meeting single lawyers, or finding other men and women dating after 40.
It all starts with our in-depth personality test, which helps us figure out what your personal dating priorities are. From there, we are able to help you connect with our interesting, successful members – men and women with an average age of 30-55, a high education level (91% are educated to Bachelor’s level or above), and a shared desire to find lasting, committed love.
Calgary singles are spoiled for choice when it comes to date ideas – there’s a lot to do in The Stampede City! This is a city brimming with life, home to many wonderful restaurants, parks, theatres and bars – and the great Canadian outdoors right on the doorstep.
Finding a partner to explore with means making the most of these Calgary dating opportunities – read on to discover our favourite Calgary date ideas.
For a first date that involves some world-class cocktails, you can’t go wrong with Milk Tiger Lounge, an intimate spot that has recently been named one of the world’s 30 best bars by Condé Nast Traveler (the only Canadian venue to make the cut!). Try the gin-based Last Word: one sip and you’ll see why this bar is so beloved.
If dinner is in order, try River Café on Prince’s Island. With an inviting fireplace for cold days and a shady patio for summer, this is a date night winner for the ambience alone. Happily for all Calgary singles though, River Café offers up more than just good looks – they also boast a fabulous menu, full of local, seasonal Canadian dishes sure to wow your date. (Pro tip: their brunch menu is equally exquisite!)
Celebrating summer dating
Prince’s Island Park isn’t just a place to find amazing food, it’s also the site of many of the city’s best summer festivals like Theatre Calgary’s Shakespeare by the Bow or the Calgary Folk Music Festival. However, you don’t need a planned event to have a good time: It’s so pretty here that even a simple picnic makes a great summer date.
If you prefer a more relaxed coffee date, one of the best places in town is Philosafy Coffee. With truly delicious coffee and warm wooden surrounds, this makes the ideal location for a low-key first date. Come summer time, aim for spot at one of the sunny outdoor tables: is there anything better than bonding over sunshine and lattes?
Calgary winter dating
Other cities may be full of those who want to hide away when cold weather hits – but that can’t be said of those in Calgary! Singles here have access to many great winter dating ideas: try spending the day skiing and skating or, on a clear night, take a drive somewhere you can cuddle up and try to spot the Northern Lights.
Of course, there’s another classic winter date idea in the city – and yes, it involves The Flames. OK, it might be more thrilling than romantic but hockey can really make for a truly exciting date, especially when the Flames play the Edmonton Oilers (the Battle of Alberta is not to be missed!) The roar of the home-town crowd is sure to remind you of why you love Calgary and why you want to spend your life here with someone great.
