Dating in Canberra is easier with eharmony

by eharmony Editorial Team - July 28, 2020

Dating in Canberra can be challenging. While Canberra singles make up a quarter of the population of Australia’s sixth-largest city, a fast pace and busy lives mean finding time for romance can be an afterthought. When you do have time, even just figuring out how to get started can feel overwhelming. Luckily, you don’t have to do it all on your own; if you’re looking for love on dating sites in Canberra, eharmony makes finding a compatible partner much easier.

Where to find singles in Canberra

Looking for the perfect place to meet singles in Canberra? Here are some places you can look if you want to try dating in Canberra:

  • Bars and nightclubs are classics for a reason when it comes to dating. Places like The Basement, Cube, or Fiction are great places to look for fellow singles in Canberra
  • Rather look in the daytime? Try hitting the local mall: Canberra Centre, Majura Park Shopping Centre, and Westfield Belconnen are all great options
  • If you’re the sporty type, you could try joining an adult rec league, or one of the many runners’ groups in the city
  • If you’re a person of faith who’d like to give dating in Canberra a try, services or events at your local place of worship are a great way to find like-minded singles
  • If dancing isn’t your scene and the idea of lacing up your running shoes doesn’t appeal, board game nights at LFG, The Games Capital or Jolt Games are great, low-key ways to meet new people

Despite the many potential locations, you can meet people, traditional dating in Canberra still presents some challenges. For one thing, there’s the issue of actually finding time to go; for another, whether you’re in the right place at the right time to meet that special someone is a matter of chance. Fortunately, there’s a better way to go about dating in Canberra.

Why you should consider eharmony if you’re dating in Canberra

Ever since its inception in the early 2000s, online dating has become more and more popular, and it’s not hard to understand why singles in Canberra are choosing to look for love online. Not only is online dating easier for Canberrans to fit into their busy schedules, it allows them to cast a far wider net – important when you live in a city where the odds of that cute girl at the milk bar or that fit bloke you met at the gym being someone who dated your ex are pretty high. Plus, when you look for love online, you can tailor your search by interest, saving you valuable time when it comes to finding that special someone.
