Leeds: a glorious transformation

Leeds, considered the capital of the north by locals, is one of the great muscular industrial cities of the world. It was fired in the furnaces of the industrial revolution and is now a modern, well-connected city plugged into the global network.

But Leeds is also a city nestled in woodland and close to the rural landscape that helped make its fortune. The silver thread of the river Aire weaves through the fabric of the city.

The modern city of Leeds is undergoing a deep transformation and has not yet reached its full glory. Leeds singles can take heart and be inspired to find love in Leeds.

Leeds city itself has a population of approximately 500,000. The population of the surrounding metropolitan area is around 720,000. The city draws professionals to work from a commuting area of 751 square miles. Leeds is a massive, thriving city, ranked third in the UK in terms of population and second as a commercial and financial centre.

Roughly 40% of the population is single, with an additional 5-10% being single parents. There are approximately 7% more women than men in Leeds.

Leeds singles are as diverse and dynamic as their city. There are around 250,000 students in Leeds, many choosing to stay in the city after completing their studies. Leeds singles tend to be well educated and affluent. Many professional singles work in telecommunications, financial services, the legal sector, and in retail and hospitality.


Why online dating in Leeds?

Leeds prides itself on its new identity as a switched-on 24-hour global city. Leeds singles already know about the power of technology and communication networks.

We work online, doing our shopping and banking, and play online, keeping in touch with family and friends, booking holidays and making social arrangements. So why not find love online?

As many happy Leeds singles have already discovered, dating sites offer real opportunities to meet compatible matches, form deep relationships and find love, without the difficulties and drama of traditional face-to-face dating.


The advantages of online dating

With online dating Leeds singles can:

  • Save time and money anxiously waiting for Mr or Ms Right to pick just that moment to walk into their bar.

  • Browse their matches at a time to suit their schedule. So, if you are a shift worker at Jimmy’s, or one of the overworked professional singles commuting to the city centre each day, you can still find the time to meet someone.

  • Meet other singles at a convenient time and from the comfort of their own homes – so, if you have childcare responsibilities, it is possible to find love in Leeds without having to pay a babysitter until you are sure you want to take the next step with one of your matches.

  • Spend time getting to know each other at a pace that suits them until they feel ready to go out and about to enjoy dating in Leeds.
