Birmingham dating: Looking for companionship in England's second city

Single life in Birmingham

The inhabitants of Birmingham live by the same double-edged sword as many other large cities: On one hand there are plenty of people from diverse backgrounds and occupations for you to meet, but on the other, city-dwellers who are hardworking, educated and successful tend to have little free time when it comes to socialising and meeting new people. While for those of a social persuasion should not rule out the possibility of meeting someone special on a night out, the reality is that chances are slim, and many of the biggest catches aren’t necessarily party animals.

Dating in Birmingham: what to do?

Birmingham is undergoing some serious revitalisation in its foodie and culture spheres, so there are plenty of interesting places for you to woo. Pay close attention to the profile of your prospective date, and think about what they would like to do. It doesn’t have to be wild and crazy (although that could work) it just has to be thoughtful.

Dining out

Birmingham is of course well known as the home of the British curry. But what Indian eatery on the Balti Triangle stands out above the rest? While there will be heated discussions on the topic from West Bromwich to Sollihull, Al Frash is indisputably  in the upper echelons of glorious curry goodness. The excellent service and fragrant dishes will go some way in ensuring that your date gets off to a flying start.

Nightlife in Birmingham

Experience the life of an English gentleman (or woman) at the Jekyll and Hyde Gin Parlour, an elegant and sophisticated drinking den, resplendent with purple banquettes and wood panelling. Gin Parlour sports the largest gin selection in the West Midlands, so miss out at your peril. Another excellent venue for a drinks rendezvous is the Tap and Spile, which overlooks the canal. You can scurry yourselves away in one of the many nooks and crannies and get cosy over one of the excellent local ales on tap.

Daytime dating

Dates in the daytime can be a lot less fraught with unnecessary tension than their night time counterparts. You might find that going for a stroll along the canal side, or visiting one of Birmingham’s great halls of culture such as the Ikon Gallery, is a lot more relaxing than being placed face to face over plates of food.
