Brighton Dating: Finding Local Love Online

Nestled on the shores of the English Channel, Brighton is undoubtedly one of the South East’s most vibrant cities. Buzzing, progressive and cosmopolitan, it’s a place that’s got something for every persuasion. Like the city itself, Brighton singes are a diverse and charming bunch. All this choice, however, can make it particularly challenging when it comes to meeting someone who suits you to a tee. That’s where EliteSingles comes in to play. With years of experience in the online dating industry, we’re one of Britain’s leading sites for singles who’re looking for lasting love. It’s time to discover a new side to the Brighton dating scene.

Single Life in Brighton

Brighton singles tend to hail from many different walks of life. From artists and academics to high-flying London professionals, Brighton’s population is a proper melting pot of backgrounds and cultures. For sure, meeting someone fun in one of the city’s many bars or clubs isn’t difficult. That said it’s hard to guarantee that they’ll have long-term potential for a serious relationship. Since getting to know someone properly on a night out is hardly easy, finding a person who has exactly what you look for in a partner can prove a challenge.

Another issue to consider is your work-life balance. With a considerable bulk of the city’s professionals commuting to London every day, it’s especially hard to find the time to get out and delve into the Brighton dating scene. It’s not uncommon to feel disheartened if you fall into this camp, especially as it can seem like you’re continually searching in the wrong place for someone to love. That’s why online dating is often viewed as a much more practical approach if you’ve got a demanding schedule. And EliteSingles is designed with busy people in mind and uses all the latest technologies to enhance your love life. Here’s how...

Why Choose EliteSingles for Brighton Dating?

You might be wondering how EliteSingles differs from any other dating site? That’s a good question. Our dating platform is the result of years and years of experience in the industry coupled with a forward-thinking approach to online dating. At the core of EliteSingles is our intelligent matchmaking system. Upon registration, we require every new member to fill in an extensive personality test that’s based on Costa and McRae’s famous Five Factor Model. Your results help us get a nuanced understanding of your characteristics, as well as the sort of qualities you’re looking for in a potential partner.

Dating in Brighton is wonderfully broad and we love celebrating that diversity. We pride ourselves on offering our members an incredibly inclusive service through which it’s possible to meet like-minded singles. As well as helping more mature singles get back into older dating, we’ve got a very strong membership from within Brighton’s LGBT scene. We feel that we’re one of the UK’s best dating sites when it comes to gay and lesbian dating. What better place to find out why than in Brighton!

What's Going on in Brighton?

As well as ensuring our members have access to a premium dating service and easy-to-use dating app, we also provide current and fun dating advice. We’re fully aware that our duty doesn’t just stop once you’ve matched with someone; we want to help you grow your new relationship. That’s why we’ve created our EliteSingles Magazine.

Brighton singles will know that there’s plenty going on in the city.

Tasty looking beers
A pub paradise

If you think that the best way to break the ice is over a casual drink in a relaxed environment, there aren’t many cities that can rival Brighton when it comes to the sheer choice of watering holes (according to some sources, there are roughly around 900 licensed premises in Brighton and Hove!). And what’s more, every Brightonian will have their favourite. We’ve got a couple.

During the summer months, make the climb up to Hanover’s Setting Sun. A proper hidden gem, it’s one of the best spots to watch the sunset over the city. For a more snug experience nothing beats the Basketmaker’s Arms. Make sure you open up the tobacco boxes that adorn its walls and read the notes inside. You might even pen something romantic together! Last but not least, get lost inside the sprawling Lion and Lobster, a quirky pub just up from the Bandstand.

fine dining meal
Brighton bites

Locals proudly argue that Brighton has some of the best restaurants in the UK. It indeed has some of the most interesting, and date-suitable, particularly if the idea of formal fine-dining does always appeal. Terre a Terre is one of the finest vegetarian restaurants there is, as is the hugely popular Indian Summer nearby.

If you’re looking for something low-key, there’s plenty on offer too. If you’re a morning person, why not have a breakfast date at Kemptown’s egg & spoon. Relive those student days and grab some delicious Japanese food at Pompoko. Set just opposite the Pavilion, it’s a great place to start a night out. For one of the city’s best lazy Sunday roasts, an afternoon at The Sussex Yeoman is too good to be missed! With so many new places opening each month, in Brighton you can always find somewhere to enjoy on your first date together. 


two cups of coffee
What to do?

In a city constantly re-inventing itself, daters in Brighton are well-endowed for options. From live music in the Prince Albert to theatre, fine restaurants and outdoor activities, Brighton offers something for everyone. And with the beachfront always a possibility for a romantic stroll, Brighton can surely be said to be a dating paradise.

For something simple that’s popular with most (almost two thirds of women in our recent survey favoured it),1 going for coffee on the first date is a good idea. The Small Batch Coffee Company makes some of the best coffee in Brighton – and, as they have locations all over the city, you're never far from a solid first date venue.
