Vancouver dating: meeting great singles in Vancity

Vancouver sure does pack a punch. Consistently named as one of the top five cities worldwide for livability and quality of life, it’s no wonder we love to call this vibrant city home. Yet, dating here is another story. With the day to day buzz of life in Van, finding someone special is not easy. You have work, family events, friend’s birthdays; you don’t have the time (nor the desire) to explore the Vancouver dating scene hoping to meet Mr. or Mrs. Right. But that’s where EliteSingles can help.

EliteSingles members: committed to long-lasting love. 

When it comes to choosing a Vancouver dating site it is incredibly important to know what you want. People often become disenchanted by online dating because they find themselves surrounded by singles who aren't on the same page romantically. Are you looking for someone who is serious about finding a long-term relationship? Are you interested in Vancouver dating? Then you’re in the right place! EliteSingles members are those who are looking to share their life with someone special. This search is at the heart of what we do and the reason behind the heart-warming results we see year after year.

Vancouver Dating with EliteSingles: Compatibility is key.

At EliteSingles we recognize that the best relationships are between like-minded people. In fact, our matchmaking process is built around this concept: our thoughtful matchmaking algorithm looks at your personality characteristics and your relationship preferences in order to introduce you to 3-7 promising potential partners daily. At the same time, we also understand that life sometimes has a way of surprising us – we sometimes click with people we wouldn’t have expected. This is where our Premium “Have You Met” feature comes in – it allows you to view up to 20 other members who are slightly outside your preference settings. Who knows who you may meet!

One of the greatest things about coming up with Vancouver dating ideas is that it is very hard to go wrong! When a city is as beautiful as Vancity, the options are endless. Nature lovers are particuarly spoiled for choice: whether you want to explore a hiking trail, relax in a park or head out onto the water, Vancouver can provide. 

You can even check out great Vancouver views without all that exertion: try taking your date to LIFT Bar Grill View, located on the seawall at Coal Harbour. The location means that Lift is ideal for both fresh seafood and for stunning surrounds: the patio opens right out to the water, making it the perfect place to sit, chat and watch the sun set over the city.

Put a spring in your step

Winter in BC is pretty great, especially if you ski or play hockey. But, for those who want to explore the romantic side of Vancouver dating, there is one season that stands out: spring. Take that special person for a walk under the cherry blossoms in Stanley Park: the delicate clouds of enchanting petals are the perfect first date backdrop.

For those who prefer a more dramatic date, spring is also one of the best times of year to go whale watching. And, booking a tour with a company like Wild Whales Vancouver means that not only do you get a chance to see Orcas, you also get all the perks of a romantic harbour cruise (including some incomparable city views as you sail through English Bay).

In an EliteSingles survey, our members revealed that the most popular option for a first date is meeting for coffee.1 And, happily for Vancouver singles, the coffee options here are amazing! Try Le Marché St George – if the 100 year old building doesn’t win your date over, the ‘Friendship Cup’ (coffee designed to be shared) just might.  

If you’re after something a little stronger, then the Steamworks Brew Pub is a winning choice. Their beer is outstanding (the Jasmine IPA is the stuff dreams are made from), their food is delicious and they’re right by the water – meaning that you’re perfectly placed for a romantic post-dinner stroll. What more do you need to secure that second date?
