The Perth dating scene has been through big changes in the past two decades. The mining boom brought an influx of new residents to the city and though the peak is over, the city is now home to over two million residents. For Perth singles, this can be both a blessing and a curse. A bigger population certainly means more great singles to potential pair with, but on the flip side, it can be hard to find them in the chaos of modern day life. This is where EliteSingles can help: We work to connect like-minded Perth singles searching for a serious and fulfilling relationship. If you’re looking for long-lasting love and happiness, get involved in Perth dating with EliteSingles.
Perth Dating: How to Meet the Best Singles
Once upon a time, the concept of matchmaking meant having a friend set you up on a blind date or maybe heading along to a B&S Ball and hoping for the best. Luckily these days doesn’t have to be so hit and miss, with online dating allowing you to outline your preferences in a partner and being open about your intentions for a relationship.
EliteSingles allows you to meet singles Perth-wide who truly fit what you’re looking for. After registering for our service, all members complete a personality test based on the Five-Factor Model. The in-depth test allows us insight into the type of person you are, as well as the type of person you’re interested in dating, so you can be matched with the most compatible singles.
The personality test is your opportunity to be specific about what and who you’re searching for. Whether you want to meet over 50 singles, explore gay dating or meet marriage-minded singles, we have you covered. You can also specify how far you’re willing to look for a partner, so no matter if you’re based in Fremantle, Mindarie or Highgate you can set your own specific parameters.
After all the important information has been submitted we’ll then send you 3-7 tailored partner suggestions daily and from there you can begin chatting and see if sparks fly. And don’t worry if you’re busy and on-the-go, our EliteSingles app means that whether you use an iOS or Android phone you can access the best bits of our platform right from your smartphone.
Online Dating for Perth Singles
After you begin chatting and find some chemistry, the next step is to start planning your first date. With such a vibrant city at your doorstep, there’s no shortage of wonderful romantic restaurants, bars, and locations to plan the perfect Perth date.
While your initial conversation should give you some ideas for activities or destinations that both you and your match will enjoy if you’re stumped for ideas, try one of ours below.
Heading out for dinner is the traditional first date move, so why mess with a classic! Perth has a fantastic food scene and there are tons of great places to choose from. If you’re after somewhere with food perfect for sharing and an intimate atmosphere, check out Freo hot spot, Stable Hands. Ideal for those who get food envy, this restaurant and bar makes almost everything in-house – including mozzarella and jams!
For live music at a local favourite, Swallow Bar’s French-inspired menu is the way to go. With a vibe that’ll have you mistaking Perth for Paris, this European-style bar will keep you well fed, watered and entertained – especially if you plan your date for one of their frequent live music evenings.
If your ideal date is a casual drink, Perth singles have got plenty to choose from. Australia’s craft beer culture is fast becoming internationally renowned and the Feral Brewing Company are at the very vanguard. You and your date can take a brewery tour or visit the restaurant to marvel at the outrageously experimental – and delicious – brews on offer.
Meanwhile, for something more central, head to Tiny’s, a bar much bigger than its name lets on. Tiny’s is the perfect spot for those serious about a good drink, with craft beer and seasonal cocktails on offer, as well as a collection of over 300 wines! Weekday dates are ideally timed to catch live acoustic music or DJs playing laid-back jams.
Adventure and Entertainment
Of course, not all dates need to take place at night. Daytime dating can often add an informal air to a first meeting, perfect for nervous daters. Outdoor settings are especially good at creating a calm, relaxed dating space; why not pack a picnic and head to the Kings Park and Botanical Gardens for an afternoon in the sun.
Alternatively, the more culturally inclined could try the Indigenous Galleries at the Art Gallery of Western Australia, where the award-winning works are sure to be great conversation starters. And finally, for those beach lovers amongst us, a simple trip to Cottesloe Beach for a stroll, ice cream, and a stunning West Coast sunset is about as Aussie as a first date gets.
