Brisbane Singles – find love in Brissie!

Brisbane may be known ironically as ‘BrisVegas’, but when it comes to the search for love the name rings true: the dating scene is somewhat of a gamble! While there are thousands of eligible singles around town, knowing who is available and where to pin them down leaves plenty of singles guessing. Of course, you can always trawl Brisbane’s nightlife in the Valley, City, or West End, hoping to find that ‘special someone’, but in a city where 18 year olds dominate the streets, it can be an exhausting and ineffective strategy. This is the reason EliteSingles was founded – to connect like-minded Brisbane singles who are actively looking for a committed relationship.

Brisbane Dating with EliteSingles 

When you register online with EliteSingles you will be asked to complete a personality test and extensive questionaire. There are two reasons for these tests; firstly, to give us a thorough understanding of who you are and the sort of person that matches your personality, and secondly, to enable us to make tailored partner suggestions that are relevant to your partner specifications. For example, perhaps you would only like to meet Brisbane singles of a certain age, religion or within a certain distance parameter. Or perhaps you're simply an adament non-smoker, searching for another non-smoker. Whatever it is, with our matchmaking process you'll only be given partner suggestions that appear to have a high likelihood of compatibility. No need to search through endless irrelevant profiles - it's Brisbane Dating made easy.    

‘I loved Malcolm's profile.  He seemed to like all the same things I did.  We had both travelled a lot and both loved the sea… it was clear from our first couple of emails that I had found someone special.’ Shirley, 53

Where to go in Brisbane

Once you've found a profile that sparks your interest and exchanged some messages online, you may want to take the next step by arranging that exciting first date. Brissie may be known as a 'big country town', but those looking for date ideas will find that Brisbane is actually packed with first date options. Consider what you know about the person you are dating and think about what would interest them. It's always a great idea to find a venue or activity that has a warm but relaxed atmosphere.

Finding an activity that is conducive to conversation is also very important - a night at the movies may sound appealing, but will obviously mean less time talking and getting to know one another. See below for a few first date tips, which ought to let the conversation flow and allow you to test your interpersonal compatibility. We've made Brisbane dating even simpler; for an extensive list of the city's goings on, see here.

China Town
Eating Out

With its unique, mellow ambiance, a rainforested foyer, silk cushions and meticulously constructed cooking, Garuva is always a good bet when aiming to impress. Tables are screened from other diners by means of sheer curtains -  a novel touch that ensures you experience the vibrancy of restaurant dining combined with the tranquility and companionship of a private booking. Another interesting Brisbane destination is The Gunshop Café, a repurposed gunshop with exposed brick walls and hip vibes. Those in search of a relaxing coffee-date will find that this cafe is home to one of Brisbane's best flat whites, while those looking for something a little more substantial will want to stick around for the delicious dinner menu, much of which is locally sourced (they even produce their own honey from rooftop beehives!).

After Dark

Continuing the theme of weaponry-based monickers, Lock ‘n’ Load is a lovely gastropub set over two storeys. There is live music most nights and the upstairs balcony provides for some thrilling views over the West End. The newly refurbished courtyard also offers an elegant way to experience a (typically) warm Brisbane night, preferably while enjoying one of Lock 'n' Load's signature cocktails. Beer lovers may prefer and indeed rejoice in the Archive Beer Boutique, which boasts over 160 types of Australian beer, alongside many international craft brews. There's also a constantly changing tap selection that typically features everything from hoppy IPA's to chocolatey Porters to refreshing Pilsners - many of which are proudly Australian-brewed!

Adventure and Entertainment

Of course, not all dates have to take place in the evening and Brisbane is humming with great options for a relaxed daytime date. South bank is a wonderful, relaxed place for a first date; a walk through the bouganvillea-covered arbour makes for a beautiful afternoon. Also in the South Bank precinct is The Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, which contains lots of great conversation starters, especially for the creatively-inclined. Just down the way is the Queensland Maritime Museum, boasting a range of displays on maritime adventures and a map showing the locations of over 1500 shipwrecks in Queensland’s waters.
