Dating in Wales: love is all around you

Outside of the big three cities, and even often within them, meeting new people in Wales can be particularly challenging. But as singles of all ages turn to the internet to find love, online dating is quickly becoming the easiest way for people to find the partner right for them.

Dating in Wales: The Welsh singles scene

There are now record numbers of single adults in Wales; almost 10% more than in 2001. A third of all people are now single, suggesting finding the right person is becoming more difficult.1

Whether you reside in Swansea, Cardiff, Aberystwyth or elsewhere, the difficulties finding the dream partner may be very similar. For city-dwellers, the route  to getting to know someone new too often relies on a chance encounter in by in a club or bar; but how often do these people really seem like long-term material? For those outside Wales' major cities, the chances of encountering a perfect fit are even less.

Dating in Wales with EliteSingles

On EliteSingles, you don't need to compromise on what you're looking for or how far you have to travel to meet a partner. Our site has singles like you across Wales, singles who share a commitment to finding a partner who'll be there for the long term. From the bustle of Cardiff to the beautiful north, dating in Wales may sometimes seem like trying to locate the proverbial needle - but it's important that you know where to look.

Anyone with a busy lifestyle will agree that one of their biggest obstacles to finding love is simply finding the time. The fact is that it can be difficult for everyone to balance their career, personal interests and the search for a partner. At EliteSingles we make this easier, meaning you can find the best Welsh singles in your area, as and when it suits you, with a little help from our matching algorithm. Looking for love in Newport? Want to travel no further than Swansea? That's fine with us. Wherever you are in Wales, simply tweak your matching settings so your partner suggestions consider how far you're willing to travel to meet your match

Compatibility matters

For us, being 'compatible' means more than having some of your interests overlap. We understand compatibility more deeply, and help introduce members whose personalities are most likely to be a great match. Our smart profiling system uses a personality questionnaire when you first register to understand more about you and what kind of person you are. This means that you can be confident that our partner suggestions give you a real advantage, since those you contact have better chances of real, long-term potential.

We also know that our members are busy, have tried meeting someone offline but can't quite find that person who ticks all the boxes. While we help by matching your personalities, it's over to you when it comes to defining the type of person you want to meet. If you're a single parent looking for someone else with children, just tell us. Or if you have certain ideal preferences, such as your partner's age or their smoking or drinking habits, you can specify these, too. This helps to ensure that when you meet you suit each other genuinely well, and you won't waste time browsing through the profiles of people with whom you're just not meant to be.
