The Victoria singles scene
Victoria. It’s a great place to live (multiple quality of life surveys can attest to that!). It’s also a great place to be single – just ask the huge 55% of adult Victorians who identified as such in the 2016 census. Yet, for those who are ready to trade singledom for a lasting, long-term relationship, dating in Victoria can be tricky. This is especially true for single professionals with long office hours and for those who’ve recently returned to the dating scene; if you’re among them you’ll know that it’s just not that easy to meet Victoria singles who share your interests and who hold similar life goals to your own.

If you’re finding it challenging to meet the kind of Victoria singles that you can see a future with, online dating might just be the solution that you seek. With a reputable online dating service, not only can you be open and upfront about the kind of relationship that you are looking for, you can connect to single men and single women who want the same things. You still get the excitement, the romance and the thrill of meeting someone offline – only, this time, it’s streamlined to suit your busy lifestyle. The only real question, then, is which Victoria dating site should I choose?

Date ideas in Victoria
There are many things that make Victoria such a great place to live: natural beauty, relaxed cafes, unspoiled beaches, an outdoors that’s warm enough to enjoy. These also make Victoria dating so much fun –in this city the choices for a romantic outing are myriad. Here are some of EliteSingles’ favourites.
First date ideas in Victoria
First dates can be nerve-wracking enough without adding a really fancy venue into the mix. Perhaps that’s why so many of our members pick a relaxed coffee as their preferred first date. Of course, relaxed doesn’t have to mean boring – at least not in Victoria! Try Hey Happy on Johnson Street: the fantastic coffee (especially the nitro cold brew) and the delicious scones are the best way to ease those first date nerves!
For a taste of something stronger, head to Spinnakers Brewpub. The craft beer alone is worth the drive over the bridge, but Spinnakers also offers a tasty gastro-pub menu and one of Victoria’s best patios (the view has to be seen to be believed!). Settle in for sunset, watch the lights coming on over the water and enjoy an unforgettable date night.
Exploring the Garden City
Dating in Victoria means having easy access to one of the most romantic places in Canada: the heart-stoppingly pretty Butchart Gardens. From the fragrant Rose Garden to the hundred-year-old Japanese Garden, these grounds make for great date, year round. Make sure to keep an eye out for seasonal highlights: tulips in spring, Night Illuminations and fireworks in summer and a riot of autumn colours in the fall.
Another place to experience the magic of Victoria is by taking a stroll along the Breakwater. From the fresh sea salt air to the chance of spotting a seal or dolphin, you won’t be short on conversation topics at this incredible spot. Finish off your date with a stop at the Breakwater Café and Bistro; with their live music and great menu it’s an excellent spot to refuel.
Dialing up the romance
When you want to dial up the romance factor, book a table at OLO Restaurant. With a commitment to delicious, seasonal food and drink, this is a restaurant which really celebrates life in B.C. As if the gorgeous menu and local food ethics weren’t enough, OLO also manages to be truly welcoming – the warm bricks and golden lighting encourage the kind of date that is all about ambience, conversation and laughter.
Come summer time, we’re all craving a romantic patio date, and Bodega Bar is here to provide! The tapas-style sharing plates make this a particuarly date-friendly choice, and the ambience here only adds to the romance – think sunny and relaxing in the summer, and cozy and welcoming in the winter. Plus, the wine and sherry selection is exquisite!
