Life for Cardiff singles

Cardiff is now one of the fastest growing economies in the UK and actually has the top rate of growth in private sector employment of all UK ‘core’ cities. Attracted by the opportunities afforded to those living in this vibrant city, many professional singles are opting to eschew the grinding maw of London and pursue their dreams in Cardiff. 

Sadly though, many of these people have to juggle the busy work-life balance that comes with pursuing a successful career. Therefore, meeting that special someone can become problematic. Spending time at the office and wanting to socialise at the weekend can make it hard to meet other Cardiff singles. But that’s where a local dating sites like EliteSingles can help!

Dating in Cardiff: what's on?

The Cardiff dating circuit is filled with a bunch of exciting options, and when it comes to first dates you really are spoilt for choice. Whether it be eating out or going on a coffee date, there’s no shortage of choice.  In addition to this you have excellent museums and galleries right on your doorstep, as well as the rolling Welsh hills just outside the city. 

The places you might want to take someone on a first date vary massively. Pay close attention to the profile of your prospective date, and think about what they would like to do. But of course, don’t suggest an outing that you yourself wouldn't feel comfortable with!

Dining Out

The delightfully named Mint & Mustard specialises in seafood dishes from Kerala, one of India’s southern states. There is a spring in the step of the waiting staff, who are attentive and friendly, clearly confident in the quality of the cuisine that they are serving you. The presentation of the plates is exquisite, far far away from your bog-standard balti. Seafood is definitely the way forward here, but if you're not tempted by the lobster, crab and fish, there are plenty of vegetarian options available.

Nightlife in Cardiff

A 'cwtch' is either a warm, safe place or a cuddle. Bar Cwtch, which takes its moniker from that expression, combines all three meanings. It’s warm and cosy, you feel safe there and it’s an excellent place to chance a cuddle. Sink into a sofa and slip into Cwtch's warm embrace. In warmer months, a lovely beer garden can be accessed through a Tardis door. Ideal if your date is a fan of Dr Who (it's hard not to be in Cardiff!).

Daytime Dating

Cardiff dating during the daytime can be a lot less fraught with unnecessary tension than heading out for a nighttime date. You may enjoy a trip to the National Museum Cardiff for some fascinating ancient artefacts, or perhaps you’ll be captivated by the handsome Cardiff Castle (Castell Caerdydd), with its imposing mock-Gothic facade.  Want to stretch your legs after a nice meal? Why not take a relaxing stroll in Bute Park, once a part of the Bute family's vast holdings?
