London Dating: The London singles life

London is a dynamic city, filled with fascinating people. Yet finding them (and the time to meet them) is a familiar difficulty for many London singles. With long hours and juggling a hectic work-life balance, finding a partner who ticks all your boxes can become a very real problem for many Londoners.

For some, meeting new people often means exploring London’s nightlife at the weekend, hoping to find that ‘special someone’ in a pub or nightclub. Yet a noisy bar is often not the place to get to know someone properly. And for others, living within a tight-knit spiritual community can narrow your horizons when trying to meet singles outside your immediate social circles. Given the mix of London singles out there, finding exactly what you look for in a partner can prove challenging. But fret not, here’s how we can help...

How to meet local London singles with EliteSingles

From Hammersmith to Hackney, and Chiswick to Croydon, London singles are without doubt the most diverse crowd in the country. The good news is that EliteSingles has established itself as the leading UK dating site for British singles from all sorts of backgrounds. Whether you’re looking to discover interracial dating, meet amazing muslim singles, or explore the London gay dating scene, we’ve got your back.

Our success in uniting such a broad population is underlined by one major goal: to connect London singles who are serious about finding a long-term relationship. And here’s why we excell when compared to other local dating sites. We’re unique because we specialise in introducing compatible members to one another using an intelligent matchmaking system

Backed with years of experience in online dating, our approach to matchmaking is based on an in-depth personality test and a specially developed algorithm. This enables us to get a 360-degree picture of your characteristics and partner preferences, which then allows us to match you with people to a high degree of accuracy. 

We also monitor who’s using our dating site, which involves hiding inactive users and verifying all new profiles. This means you can be sure of only seeing real people, with real potential.

Your London dating guide

“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life, for there is in London all that life can afford,’ said Samuel Johnson. Centuries on, Dr. Johnson’s famous quote still resonates (though he might have had a change of heart if he’d spent a week trying to negotiate Victoria at rush hour…). Jokes aside, London is full of possibilities when it comes to dating.

With top-quality restaurants, bars and outdoor spaces, there are plenty of ways to impress on that all-important first date in London. Consider what would be interesting for your date and try to ensure that the venue is intimate, romantic and relaxing.

Eating out

If a meal is more your thing, an exciting and on-trend experience awaits at Dishoom, an Indian restaurant inspired by Bombay’s café culture. With a unique menu that’s great to share together, and a lively atmosphere, it’s perfect for a dinner date. Take a trip to London’s only Michelin-starred pub, The Harwood Arms, to savour an award-winning lunch.

If you and your date are more morning people, why not head out for brunch together. Few places do casual late-morning eating as well as The Breakfast Club. What’s more, they’ve got plenty of locations dotted around London, so you don’t have to worry about going hungry!

Nightlife in London

If a face-to-face dinner date seems a little intense, why not meet for a more casual drink in one of London’s great bars or traditional pubs, like The Oueen’s Head off Grays Inn Road. If you’re after a romantic glass of wine in superb surroundings, nothing beats Gordon’s at Embankment.

Nightjar, near Old Street, serves some of the capital’s most interesting cocktails, has great live jazz and cosy couches – perfect for a first date. For a classic movie date, try the Electric Cinema on Portobello Road. With velvet chairs and a champagne bar, it’s a good way to make a trip to the pictures extra special.

Arts, Culture & More

With some of the best theaters in the world, those wanting to do something more cultural have endless possibilities in London. From Shakespeare’s Globe on the Southbank, the City’s sprawling Barbican Centre, to the many unique fringe theatres scattered throughout town, seeing a play is a dating classic.

Art aficionados are also spoilt for choice. Whether you prefer an old stalwart like the V&A, or more contemporary contenders like the Saatchi Gallery or White Cube, the choice is abundant. Aside from London’s bonanza of museums, more leftfield ideas like a rugby match at Twickenham or a day of cricket at Lords prove the options are endless!
