Single life in Gatineau

Whether you're single in Gatineau or whether you're over the river in Ottawa, you'll know two things for sure. One, Ottawa-Gatineau is an amazing place to live, full of art, action, and adventure. Two, it can be tough to meet the kind of singles you actually see a future with. Indeed, although around 44% of adults in the area identify as single,1 meeting those who truly suit you can feel like an uphill battle. This can be especially true for those dating over 30, over 40, or over 50 - with friends paired-off or married, office dating frowned upon, and the bar scene full of 20-somethings, it can be hard to know where to start. Happily, there is a place to find like-minded love: online, with a premium dating site like EliteSingles.

Taking Gatineau dating online

Having shaken off its stigma in the past few years, online dating is on the up and up in Gatineau, in Quebec and across Canada. In fact, these days around one-in-three marriages begin online2 - which means that, if you're dating with marriage in mind, then online dating websites make a great place to start.

Of course, success on this front depends in large part on choosing the dating site that's most in line with your relationship needs. For instance, if your dating priorities include the desire to meet someone truly compatible; someone who, like you, is a mature, single professional looking for a long-term relationship, then your best bet is to find a premium dating site specifically designed to meet those requirements. 

Online dating with EliteSingles

EliteSingles is just such a site. Our aim is to bring love to every single serious about finding it, which means that we specialize in making like-minded connections between compatible Canadian singles.

It all starts with our in-depth personality test. Based off of Costa and McCrae's Five-Factor model, our test is designed to give us insights into your dating priorities (and to give you some interesting personality insights too!). We then combine this with your location, your lifestyle requirements, and your relationship goals to get an idea of who you are and what you want from love.

From there, our compatible matchmaking process begins. We aim to bring our members 3-5 matches per day - matches that have been selected based on their potential for high compatibility and lasting affection. We think that this is the best way to streamline the search for love (and busy Gatineau singles can steamline even further with our handy dating app!).

For busy, dynamic singles dating in Gatineau, Hull, Aylmer, Buckingham, Masson-Angers or anywhere in the region, EliteSingles is a great dating tool to have on hand. Ready to join in? Register with us today

Wining and dining in Gatineau

French romance and Gatineau dating go hand in hand - at least if this city's bistros have anything to do with it! While there are many cozy little French restos in Gatineau, one of the ville's most delightful is Bistro Le Forain. With a quirky, arty sensibility (you have to see the stairs that look like books!), and a delicious, decadent menu, this is the ideal place to have a really romantic date night. Especially if you try the duck poutine.

Alternatively, try the oh-so-romantic Soif Bar à vin. Here, expertly chosen wines from around the world are paired beautifully with stunning small plates - you won't know just how glorious a ribbon of zuchinni can be until you've tried theirs! Cozy in winter and with a cute summer patio, this is a charming place for a date, whatever the weather.

Quebec date ideas

Those dating in Gatineau should take a trip to The Canadian Museum of History/ Musée Canadien de L'histoire. One of the most (if not the most) culturally rich museums in Canada, this is the kind of place you can come to again and again. Even if you grew up in Hull and have been to the museum more times than you can count, take your date and show them your favourite part. It will feel like discovering it anew. 

Crave a change of scenery? Plan a dating day trip. Montreal's date ideas are just a few hours away by car, and with plenty of lovely villages en route, MTL is not the only Quebec jewel worth seeing. Want something more active? Mont Cascades is an even shorter drive: think a date on the slopes, followed by a taste of après-ski romance.

Seasonal date ideas

Dating in the fall? Gatineau is the place to be! This city epitomizes fall romance, especially if you take your date to The Champlain Lookout to gaze out across Gatineau Park. The beautiful colours and breathtaking view make for one a swoon-worthy date. Come winter, head over to Ottawa for a skating date on the the Rideau Canal: it's not every day you can have a date on a UNESCO World Heritage Site!

When the weather warms up, it's time to try some of Gatineau's great summer date ideas. Hiking is a must of course, and with a wealth of beaches in and around the city, it's also not hard to find somewhere sunny to relax. Try La Pêche Lake for sandy shores, welcoming water, and a refreshing break from the bustle of the city.
