eharmony Couple - Karl & Moreena
"I had been in two serious relationships before eharmony. We had started skyping each other as i am a fly-in-fly-out worker and I felt something one day when she just looked at me differently. I knew then that it was something special. We can be stupid together, honest with each other and serious when we need to be. We're always on the same page and communicate so well."
eharmony Couple - Brodie & Zahra
"Now, I’m sure that Zahra actually sent me an Icebreaker first but she begs to differ. I know I did send her a message first to say how much I liked her family values and enjoyed her zest for life. We emailed a bit and then she told me that her membership was about to run out so we took a chance and swap numbers. After a few weeks of messaging, we decided to meet up for dinner. I can honestly say it was the best first date that I have ever been on. We laughed so much and joked about how we had both organised to have our friends at the phones ready to call us with an ‘emergency’ in case we needed to get out of there! We ended up being the lasts ones to leave the place. We have been happily together for eight months and living together for four. I know she is ‘the one’."

Perth is one of Australia's most picturesque cities with endless possibilities for your first date. Whether you enjoy watching an Indian Ocean sunset or exploring Kings Park and Botanic Gardens, you'll be able to find the perfect backdrop for your date. If you're still stuck on where to go here are a few ideas:
Beach date – Western Australia is home to some of the most beautiful and whitest beaches in the world. Cottlesloe is one of Perth's most iconic beaches and if you pack a picnic, is the ideal location for your first date as Alice & Andrew discovered. If you like to surf, this could be a great opportunity to showcase your skills or even to bond with your match over some surfing lessons.
Park date – Kings Park and Botanic Gardens is famous for its extensive city and river panoramic views, with lush green bush land just waiting to be explored. Its striking views make this the perfect place for a first date where you can take some lunch, a blanket and enjoy a nice afternoon in the park. Being so close to the city you may instead opt for a nice stroll around the parklands like eharmony couple Jane & Greg, followed by a tasty dinner at a nearby restaurant.
Movie date – If you and your match are both movie buffs then perhaps a cinema date is best for you. As far as outdoor cinemas go, the Moonlight Cinema & The Somerville Auditorium is the ideal option where you can get comfortable with a blanket and deck chairs while you nibble on some yummy food and enjoy a classic. If you prefer a little bit of luxury then head to Gold Lounge at Reading Cinemas Belmont with comfy reclining chairs and a state of the art bar for you to enjoy. Whichever option suits you best, a movie date is a great way to break the ice and ensure you and your date have a lot to talk about.
Swan Valley date – Not keen on the typical date? If you and your match have a mutual love for wine and vineyards you should take a short drive to Swan Valley. Here you will be able to visit microbreweries and wineries where you can taste some of the best Western Australian wine and splurge on the gourmet goodies, fresh food produce and sweet treats. It is the type of date that will keep conversation bubbling and give you plenty of opportunity to really get to know each other.
Dinner date – If you and your match are both foodies trhen this is definitely the date for you! With more restaurants per capita than any other major Australian city, you'll be spoilt for choice whether it's fine dining at Restaurant Amuse, one of Perth's most famous eateries or devouring something a little different at Down The Hatch. Who knows, your mutual passion for food may inspire you to taste test a few well known places in the sunny capital. Just make sure you confirm what time you're meeting your match so you don't almost miss your date like Karl & Moreen!
Active date – Are you and your match both very active people? If so, Swan River may be the perfect place for your first date! Not only does this location give you the opportunity to jump on a jet ski, try a surf cat or even go for a river cruise but it also gives you the perfect backdrop for some amazing photos. Bond with your match over a lazy lunch after a fun and active day in the sun.
