using a Melbourne dating site to find the right match

by eharmony Editorial Team - July 28, 2020

Using online dating apps can feel overwhelming. On the upside, you get a clear picture of who’s out there and single from a Melbourne dating site. On the downside, it involves a lot of text conversations and first dates with different Melbourne singles that may not lead to anything significant. eharmony is different: we like quality over quantity when it comes to matching you.

Here, we look at how dating in the city works, where you can meet interesting singles and how eharmony can point you in the right direction.  

The where and when of meeting Melbourne singles

If there’s one thing the city is not short of, it’s exciting places to visit that are full of single people. Here are some fun spots and ideas to meet people outside of a Melbourne dating site:

  • The National Gallery of Victoria and Melbourne Museum – Museums and galleries are great for more introverted types as they provide a more relaxed conversational environment
  • The Emerald Peacock – With its opulent interiors and older, fashionable crowd, this rooftop bar is a dazzling addition to the Melbourne dating scene
  • At the gym – Take a mixed class or join an exercise club. You might even pick up a new hobby along the way
  • The Brunswick Ballroom – Or any live music venue. It’s a great place to find singles with similar tastes
  • Volunteer – Give back while making new social connections. Melbourne City Mission and Sacred Heart Mission are two well-established non-profit organizations

However, we also understand that just meeting new people can be tough, let alone trying to initiate a date. Here are some of the challenges:

  • We often rely on other friends to meet new people, which can be an obstacle if you have a limited or inactive social circle
  • As singles age, they tend to veer away from nightlife somewhat, reducing the more common opportunities to meet people
  • You can’t tell if someone is single before approaching them, which can sometimes leave you feeling awkward 

This is why many single people turn to a Melbourne dating site. Here’s how eharmony helps with many of the pitfalls of modern dating.
