Look for love in Perth
With Perth being the largest city in western Australia, it goes without saying there are plenty of single men and women there to meet. Despite this, finding a compatible date in Perth can sometimes be a tricky task.
Set on the Swan river, Perth provides a magnificent dating backdrop. Whether it’s going to the Western Australian Maritime Museum in Fremantle, seeing an outdoor concert at Subiaco Oval, or soaking up the sun at Scarborough beach, the scene will be set for romance, and there are plenty of date destinations to be explored. eHarmony members include a diverse range of singles from suburbs across Perth – from Claremont to Subiaco and from Canningvale to Joondalup.
With online dating Perth singles can spend less time looking for a date in a bar or night club and spend more time getting to know compatible matches.

What’s different about eHarmony?
eHarmony is a dating website that takes a different approach. It all starts with you. Our Relationship Questionnaire helps us get to know you first so we can find matches who are right for you.
Our Compatibility Matching Syste™ will then connect you with local singles who match you on key dimensions such as character, intellect and sense of humour. In other words, being compatible with someone goes much deeper than what your interests are, like whether you both like action movies and kayaking on the Swanny. We match you on the things that really matter when it comes to dating and finding a great relationship.
First date ideas
Being so distant from other major cities, Perth has cultivated its own outlook and way of life. It has always been a hub of creativity and entrepreneurial spirit, so make the most of it by exploring the city with someone special you meet on eHarmony.
Many first dates take place in restaurants and bars, and for those online dating Perth offers lots of unique options. The Greenhouse, with its recycled furniture and environmentally friendly ethos, is the perfect option for someone who cares deeply about the planet, while Satsuki is unsurpassed for lovers of fine Asian dining. For a good steak try Rockpool Bar and Grill. Wherever you choose, you can be sure you’ll find something to match both your date’s tastes and your own.
Others may prefer to get to know their date over a beer, and what better place to go with a connoisseur than the Little Creatures brewery? For an old-world feel try Defectors in Mt Lawley. Don’t just stick to your favourite watering holes – why not try something new together? Exploring the city is a great way to get to know someone.
More dating ideas
You’ve met someone you’re strongly compatible with and your first few dates have gone swimmingly. Perhaps it’s time to branch out into something a little more adventurous. Find out what artistic events are going on at PICA, or take your date to a footy match. If the weather is fine, outdoor cinemas in the summer are made for Perth dating. The Luna Palace courtyard cinema is an outdoor movie setting with comfy canvas seating and a beautiful garden – sublime!
Perhaps you and your date are keen on the outdoors – why not try a day trip to Rottnest Island and go bushwalking, cycling or hiking? For a different perspective on the city try looking at it from the Swan river in a kayak or while kite surfing. For a beach date Perth singles are spoilt for choice, and whether you choose a stretch of sand close to the city, or a bit further afield and make a day trip of it, you’ll be enjoying the sun-drenched romance of the white sands – just don’t forget the sunscreen!
If the weather’s not right for outdoor pursuits, movie buffs might like to try the Piccadilly, Perth’s only heritage-listed Art Deco cinema. A cultural trip to the Western Australian Museum to soak up the state’s history makes an original date. If music is your scene, there is always a big-name touring act, but Perth – home to the world-renowned Western Australian Academy of the Performing Arts – is the residence of many a creative soul, so why not check out some local talent? You and your date may just discover the next big thing at your local.
eHarmony Success Story
Lisa & Les Hargraves
Matched by eHarmony, December 2009
Shortly after being matched on eHarmony Lisa and Les began communicating. Les suggested that as a first date he come around and cook his famous curry for Lisa at her place. The curry wasn’t the only success, the whole evening was! A second date was organised and Lisa admits, “It was then that I realised just how lovely Les really was”.
Les proposed in a local park. He was too nervous to get down on one knee, but of course Lisa said yes. Lisa & Les eloped to Broome, just the two of them, where they were married on Cable Beach in the afternoon in an intimate ceremony. They hadn’t organised anything apart from the ceremony so they were surprised when they just turned up at Cable Beach Resort Bar and were given a free bottle of Champagne and the best table in the house so they could watch the romantic sunset as husband and wife.
