Edinburgh dating: find love in Scotland

With more well-educated, high-earning singles than anywhere in Scotland, finding a like-minded partner in Edinburgh should be simple. But despite Edinburgh being filled with fascinating people, finding them and the time to meet them is a well-known difficulty for many singles in the city. EliteSingles combines a unique personality test with your personal search criteria to introduce you to the singles you really want to meet.

Single life in Edinburgh

Often referred to as the ‘Athens of the North’ for its role in enlightenment thought, and with a stunning old town and lively culture Edinburgh is a jewel for dating; but with long working days and many of the city’s day population commuting home after work, meeting a suitable long-term partner to take on romantic dates can be a struggle.

Why use EliteSingles to find a relationship in Edinburgh?

With a mainly educated, professional membership base, EliteSingles is the place to find like-minded Edinburgh singles. We use a smart profiling system which combines users' personal search criteria and a personality profile to ensure they find somebody with a similar personality, goals and lifestyle.

Where to go in Edinburgh

With high-end restaurants, enchanting old pubs in the old town and romantic walks outside, there are plenty of places that impress on that all-important first date in Edinburgh. It is definitely not hard to find an atmospheric, intimate venue in Edinburgh. With a recent survey of our members revealing that 60% of women prefer a coffee date, this could be the way to go: try Brew Lab on College Street for one of the best cups in town.

Whatever your notions of a perfect first date; use EliteSingles to find lasting love, locally.

Eating Out

If, like 45% of men in our survey, a meal is more your thing, one of Edinburgh’s best is Ondine, where the excellent seafood and smart atmosphere make for a great date. For more traditional Scottish fare, try The Grain Store on Victoria Street for an intimate dining room and top quality meals.

Adventure and Entertainment

Those of an artistic inclination may want to consider going to one of Edinburgh’s many fantastic museums or galleries – the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art being a particular highlight, even if you are not especially arty. To enjoy the bracing Caledonian air, consider going on a driving trip along the East Lothian coast – naturally stopping for some excellent seafood along the way – or take a tourist bus around the city, catching the many sights of Edinburgh you might be too busy to visit normally.

Nightlife in Edinburgh

If, as for many, a first date meal seems too formal, a drink or two in an atmospheric Edinburgh bar could be the perfect activity. With classy bars in the New Town area and historic watering-holes in the cobbled Old Town, Edinburgh boasts an array of options. To impress with a creative cocktail, try Bramble, a sophisticated, understated bar serving delicious, classic-yet-creative drinks. For a traditional Edinburgh pub experience, Blue Blazer on Spittal Street is a firm favourite. Cosy surroundings and an excellent malt whisky selection make it the perfect place to retreat for good conversation over a wee dram.
