If you’ve done the singles scene for a while you know it can be both exciting and boring. It’s exciting to attend lots of social events where you meet new people and having the prospect of meeting single men and women that might be a fit. It’s boring to have to attend events when you don’t feel like it. Also, coming home disappointed after a night on town isn’t great either. Unless you are lucky it can take some time to meet someone as not everyone will be single at the events you attend. Online dating is slightly different in that it’s made for singles. And instead of, say, fifty people at a party you will meet thousands of singles in one place. You don’t even have to leave your home to do so! We’ve found that a healthy social life, combined with online dating makes life a lot more fun and greatly improves your odds to find love.
When you use our site we always recommend that after sending someone a few messages and maybe talking on the phone once, you meet up as soon as possible. Why? Because you won’t know if you have real life chemistry until you do and rather than build a false image in your mind of what someone’s like, it’s better to meet them and find out. It’s usually also best to meet someone twice to figure out if you are a match, because contrary to popular belief first impressions rarely last. A first meeting means you’re both a bit nervous and also, you have to see beyond the idea you have of the person already. Canberra singles often ask us what a great first date is when you met online? Something simple. A coffee or a drink works great. Make it a place you both feel comfortable in. Be sure it’s a public place. Keep it short and sweet, rather meet a second time to figure out if there’s chemistry.
Canberra dating thankfully offers plenty of choice for single men and single women in Canberra when it comes to first dates. There are bars, coffee shops, diners, ice cream parlors, bakeries…you name it. All perfect for that first meeting. Below you find some ideas listed.
Just remember to pick a place where you’ll both feel comfortable…and where you won’t bump into your mother, boss, or ex… Canberra is big enough to find new haunts all the time so go out there and explore!
