London Dating

  • ✅   London has many beautiful, scenic parks for people to take walks or enjoy a picnic. Hyde Park, The Regents Park, and St. James’s Park are just a few of the places you could meet your future date while buying ice cream, taking a walk, or admiring the beauty of the area.
  • ✅   Art Gallery’s such as the National Gallery is the perfect place to find like-minded women who enjoy taking in the works of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci or Monet. Conversation can start while looking at the finer details of a painting or discussing the artists meaning in their work. Discover your shared love of art before finding your shared love of each other.
  • ✅   Museums are the perfect place to meet women who enjoy discovering the past as much as you. Maybe your eyes will meet as you both admire the creativity behind the Parthenon Sculptures. Maybe the goddess of love Venus will cast her spell over you both as you admire her statue. Maybe you will share a conversation about how the Rosetta Stone unlocked the ancient Egyptian scripture that is the hieroglyphs. This could be the way for you to unlock your interest in each other and start your own history.
  • ✅   The nightlife in London is vibrant, exciting, and full of possibilities. From the bustling bars to the happening jazz bars, the buzzing nightclubs to the humorous comedy clubs you have endless chances to meet the one. You may laugh together over a joke, have shared emotions over a soothing jazz piece, or dance the night away. You may find your missing night owl at one of these fantastic nighttime venues and plan many more nights together.
  • ✅   Music events are always happening in London. From theatres to stadiums these events attract people from all over the country. You could meet the one while dancing to your favorite band or singing along with your favorite track. This could be the start of your album together.

    These are just a few of the many places you could meet a potential date in London. It could be as simple as reaching for the same sandwich in a deli, bumping into each other on London’s busy streets, or waiting for the same bus. They say there is someone for everyone and in London, it couldn’t be easier to find your special someone.

Do's and Don'ts of Dating in London

Dos
✅  DO your research when booking a date. This research needs to be both about your date's interests and potential venues. Googling romantic spots in London may not be wise as others will do the same causing your personal date to become invaded by other daters!
✅  DO be understanding. London is one of the busiest cities in the country and the population of London works, on average, 3 weeks more than anywhere else in the UK. If a date can’t be arranged for a while or they don’t answer immediately, be conscious of the fact they are probably busy! You are probably busy too, so be understanding!
✅  DO have fun! This may sound strange but many people treat dates like job interviews, a way of finding as much about the other person as they possibly can, as quickly as they can. Incorporate surprises! Send her a photo of the ticket for the show without revealing the name, she will love the suspense and it's a good talking point!
✅  DO be chivalrous and the gentlemen that you are. However, do not be something you are not. London women live hectic lives and will love to be treated like a lady. Holding open doors, pulling out chairs, and taking her coat are all signs that you care for her needs. However, do be respectful if she decides to do all/ some of these things herself!
Don’ts
❌  DON’T force the issue of who pays for the date. This can cause a very awkward end to the date. Don’t insist on paying for everything if she would like to split the bill. On the other hand, don’t expect an offer of a split! Be open about this and respect either decision!
❌  DON’T be too needy. London women do not want you to be messaging them every five minutes asking if they are okay. They have their life and career to think about and will answer you when they can. You are likely to push them away if you come on too strong. If they are not interested they will let you know!
❌  DON’T think that because you are in London that your date activity needs to be expensive. A walk along the bank, a picnic in Hyde Park, or a treasure hunt around the city are wonderful ideas that do not cost the earth! Put a bit of thought into where you go and your date will appreciate it!
❌  DON’T focus on your phone. This is not just an issue in London but everywhere in the United Kingdom. Unless it is needed for work or personal reasons (you are on call or have children etc) then put it on silent or turn it off. Your full attention needs to be on your date and not interrupted by social media or messages from your friends!

Online Dating in London

Questions and Answers About Dating in London 

❤️  Is Dating in London Difficult?

In general, dating is as easy or as hard as you make it. However, the area you live in can also affect the quality of your dating life. There is no doubt that London is an amazing city with many opportunities to find success, a future, and love. However, there are still hurdles to overcome when dating in London and a couple of these are listed below:

Public transport — While the transport system in London is amazing it is not great for dating! Systems like the tube are hot, crowded and noisy which is not ideal if you are traveling on a date or on your way to one! It also means many Londoners are unwilling to travel outside of their borough or area for a date.

Accommodation — Unless you have a lot of money it is highly likely that you will share a house or flat with at least one other person. This can cause a lot of privacy issues, especially if they leave your flat or house in a mess before you come back with your date!

★ Many people like to take their date to a bar for a few drinks and use this time to get to know them. However, in London, this is very difficult as the bars are often like the transport system — hot, noisy and crowded! This will make the whole experience a lot less enjoyable. Remember, there are other options other than a bar!

★ Whether you live in London or you are visiting for your date you will quickly notice how different the prices are. If going for drinks you will notice the price will be around twice as much as you would pay anywhere else. Everything is far pricier than most other areas of the United Kingdom so even preparing for a date (new suit, haircut, etc) will cost more! While these are possible dampeners for your dating journey they should not cause you to give up on dating in London altogether! Every hurdle can be overcome!

❤️  How Can I Find a Girlfriend in London?

Many of the answers to this question are above under the Where can I meet singles? Heading. However, where to meet someone is slightly different from how to find a potential girlfriend. Below are some of the added extras to consider when searching for love.

Dating sites are growing in popularity and it appears that many singles prefer to date this way. It is seen as a better way as you can get to know someone through talking online before meeting in person. This gift of time means that when you finally meet in person you already have a good understanding of their likes, dislikes, and interests. The other answers to this question are, as mentioned, explained above. However, you could look at this question as "how can I attract a girlfriend?" This is more about you as a person and how you portray yourself to the rest of the world. Here are just a couple of tips:

Be yourself. This may seem obvious but many people will put on a front or act differently as a way of impressing a potential partner. Once a connection is made they start to show the real them and suddenly the other person is not as interested, this isn’t the person I fell for! Be honest, if they like you they will tell you, if they don’t then they are not right for you!

Be confident. This is not always easy to do, especially if you are not naturally confident. Confidence is a very attractive trait but some people can take it too far and be seen as arrogant. Be careful not to be too over the top but be sure of yourself.

You’ve heard the saying Dress to impress. This does not mean you have to wear Gucci but make sure you look presentable and tidy! First impressions count for everything and the first thing she will notice is what you are wearing!

Be chivalrous — hold open doors, be polite, pull out chairs for dates and offer to pay for the date. If she prefers to open the door herself or offers to pay for half of the date then make sure you respect this. In short, it is important that you are yourself, are patient, and are honest from the very beginning.
