Find your Treasure: A Gold Coast Dating Guide

by eharmony Editorial Team - December 22, 2022

Whether it’s looking out over the sprawling skyline from SkyPoint or partying up a storm on sun-drenched Cavill Avenue, the Gold Coast is a kaleidoscope of thrills and beauty. It’s a city worth sharing with someone as you explore its many natural wonders and boardwalk extravaganzas. Or get away from the crowds on the serene South Stradbroke Island, gazing out at the azure waters as you share a picnic.

You couldn’t pick a better place to find that special person. The Gold Coast dating scene is as diverse as it is passionate, boasting over 200,000 Gold Coast singles (of which there are slightly more men than women) and a relatively young median age of 39, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.1 So how do you meet the right person for you?   

New ways to meet Gold Coast singles

It’s a very friendly city so meeting new people can feel easy. But if you want to encounter quality dating prospects in your daily life, you could always try joining a sports club or taking a class. These are very charged and engaged social atmospheres, allowing you to improve yourself while interacting with other like-minded people and, perhaps, even some Gold Coast dating opportunities.

A more direct route could be single events in the Gold Coast, such as speed-dating or events like Singles Sunday hosted by The Henchman Miami. While these can sometimes feel a bit hit-or-miss, they’re useful for meeting new people and working on those flirting skills.

But a lot of it can feel like luck, which is why so many people in the city regularly turn to some kind of Gold Coast dating site. If you’re single, you’ve likely tried one yourself. As hookup culture is quite prominent in Australia and particularly on the Gold Coast, owing to its somewhat transitory population, and this can feel self-evident on some dating apps. 

But it’s not the only story. As more mature singles and people dating for serious relationships started to explore options, they realised there was a range of different services that catered to all kinds of dating desires. Now, you can explore the full range of Gold Coast dating options from anywhere.    

Where eharmony shines as a premium dating app

eharmony has become the No1 trusted dating app2 for singles looking for something beyond the shallowness and uncertainty of modern online dating. We achieved this by focusing our services around our members, helping them establish meaningful online connections and find lasting, real love. 

Here are some features that have helped us along the way.  

A compatibility-based matching algorithm

Unlike a free Gold Coast dating site that just gives you endless profiles to peruse, eharmony curates your Match List based on compatibility. Our algorithm  matches you with members who we believe you’d have a good chance of building a happy relationship with. In over 20 years of existence, we’ve helped over 2 million people find love.  

Quickly and easily find what you want with filters

Once we’ve found all the members you’d be compatible with, we put you in the driver’s seat. You can set up simple geography and age range criteria for all nearby Gold Coast dating options in your age range, or you can take things more in-depth. Set up filters based on minimum height, religion, ethnicity, education, income, desire for children and many more. 

A sea of Gold Coast dating options with a high success rate

On eharmony, someone finds love every 14 minutes. We attract an incredibly large and diverse range of high-quality singles looking for real, authentic connections and truly invested in the dating process.   

A noticeable sense of security and respect

We care deeply about the security of our members when they’re on our platform and ensuring they feel respected in interactions. We try to create a palpable sense of inclusivity, respect and consideration through our highly-trained customer support team and by routinely purging our system of suspicious and abusive accounts.

How you can join now

So if you’re looking for your next Gold Coast dating site, signing up for eharmony and getting started is easy:

  • When you join up, you’ll take our Compatibility Quiz. This quick test is how we get to know all those things about your personality and dating goals so we can use it to find just the right matches
  • Fill out your profile with some nice photos and some information on what it is that makes you special
  • Time to check your Match List, apply some filters and see if any Gold Coast dating opportunities catch your eye. Each match is assigned a Compatibility Score, the higher the better in terms of how we think you’ll click
