Meeting singles in Surrey
Surrey’s emerging tech industry, strong health industry, and wealth of recreational activities are among the reasons so many educated, dynamic men and women call this place home. What’s more, many of these Surrey residents are single, with around 40% identifying themselves as such in the 2016 Census. Yet, if you’re looking for a significant relationship in Surrey, dating opportunities don’t always present themselves as easily as this 40% would suggest, especially if you’re unwilling to date at work (or on the bar scene!). Happily, those are not the only ways to meet great singles and find a meaningful match.
Surrey dating: why looking online is the smart choice
For those singles wanting more from love, the smart place to seek it is online. After all, a dating profile allows you to get specific about what you want in a partner, while a premium online dating site will both support you in your search and connect you to single men and single women who suit you. This streamlined efficiency means that, for many busy Surrey singles, the question is not ‘should I try online dating?’ but ‘what site should I pick’?
How EliteSingles can help your search
If you’re a busy professional looking to be part of a community of like-minded singles, then the right site for you is EliteSingles. We’re one of the best dating sites for single professionals in Canada: with an average age of 30-55, and a high average education level (85% of our members hold above-average education), our members are in the prime of their careers and serious about looking for a partner who will be an important part of their busy lives.
For, we’re also the site of choice for those seeking lasting, deeply compatible relationship. If you’re one of the singles looking into Surrey dating sites because you desire a loving connection with someone right for you, then our thoughtful matchmaking process can help. We get to know you through our insightful personality test, then make partner suggestions based on your relationship goals, lifestyle and personality, a process that enables us to bring you 3-7 highly compatible matches each day – each one suggested due to their potential for lasting harmony.

Surrey date ideas
Once you’ve met someone amazing online, the fun part of Surrey dating can really begin: the dates themselves! From seacoasts to city center, Surrey has plenty of great dating options, as does the Metro Vancouver area. We’ve picked some of our absolute favourites below:
Meet for coffee or dinner
When you’re setting up a first date with someone you’ve met online, it can be only too easy to feel nervous. Perhaps that’s why so many of our members think that a coffee date is the ideal first meeting: it’s the chance to get to know someone in a relaxing, cozy environment. Those looking for coffee date ideas in Surrey are spoiled for choice, but a particular standout is Good Day Sunshine Cafe – the delicious coffee and light, welcoming interior are just the thing to put first date nerves at ease.
For a second date try Tap Restaurant in South Surrey. With its French-inspired, locally sourced menu, the food here is truly delicious. Pro tip: book a table for a Wednesday night – not only will your date night will be accompanied by live music, you’ll be able to celebrate with wine: their great under $100 bottle selection has a Wednesday discount.
Explore the outdoors
Dating in Surrey is wonderful, with plenty of beautiful parks and beaches that are ideal to explore with a date. Try heading for a beach: with its blue seas and jaw-dropping sunsets, Crescent Beach in White Rock is a must-visit in the summer. Or, try going for a hike together: the trails in Blackie Spit Park offer spectacular views out over the sea and mountains (and glimpses of seals and other wildlife), while Redwood Park is the perfect place to picnic amongst some of the world’s tallest trees.
As well as all the beauty close to home, Surrey offers access to some of the most beautiful parts of the Pacific Northwest. If you’ve reached the part of your relationship where it’s time for that first weekend away, try heading over to Delta and taking a ferry across to Victoria: from the stunning boat ride to Vancouver Island itself, it will be romance all the way
Try our SkyTrain date map
Life in Surrey also means having easy access to some of the most interesting parts of the Pacific Northwest. If you and your date want a day out, try heading to King George Station and, from there, exploring the rest of our SkyTrain date map. We’ve picked a date idea within walking distance of each SkyTrain stop so, whether you choose to get off at Scott Road for a beer at Central City, or to keep going to all the way to Granville for coffee at Finch’s Teahouse, our map will have you covered.
You could also consider international dating ideas: try a US daytrip. Seattle is just a couple of hours away by car or, to avoid the traffic, try going by train: the scenery alone makes the train trip worth it! Alternatively, head for a slightly smaller city like Bellingham, where the craft beer breweries and multiple scenic waterfalls make for a day trip destination with lots of appeal.
