Despite the buzz of Bedford and the wonders of Luton, Bedfordshire is all too often overlooked in favour of the Capital to the South and lovely Cambridgeshire to the East. The detractors are fools however, as the truth is that dating in Bedfordshire is no harder than it is everywhere else. Why? Well, as it happens, every county in the UK is lumbered with the tradition of the 9-5. And with the daily chores and long commute adding to that unending working day, Bedfordshire singles - particularly the professional singles among them - are too often left with very little time to find love.
At some point, some tech-savvy folk noticed this. Together they constructed the first dating website and charged the internet with lances drawn. Since then such sites have sprung up across the web, few with real expertise behind them. The web has slowly been inundated with tacky apps, copy-and-pasted "local" pages and dictatorial dating advice, until the whole of the internet has choked with the same old stuff.
eHarmony is different. eHarmony is run by people with real matchmaking expertise, who know a thing or two about relationships - and how to make them last.
So rediscover the Bedfordshire dating scene through an online dating site with a difference - where people who might live just five miles away from each other, or be thrust tragically apart by mountain ranges, can meet, get to know each other, and eventually, date. The pool of singles ready to mingle is much easier to see here than it is in everyday life - and you can get to know your fellow Bedfordshire single’s interests before you get chatting to them, making it easy to find the best matches for you.
As pretty as Luton is, the towns and cities of Bedfordshire are lucky enough to get their own pages - for example here you can find two wonderful articles on Leighton Buzzard and Dunstable. However, Bedfordshire itself can be a magical place - it has a town called Flitwick after all - and there are plenty of attractions largely outside of the urban areas that are great to stretch your Bedfordshire dating legs. Woburn Safari Park is one such, where you can watch the beasts of the Savannah from the comfort of your car, and always have something to talk about.
However, if you're the sporty sort who'd rather shame the cheetah than stare at one, why not head to a local leisure centre for some exercise and a cracking free dating experience? Competition is a great way to break through the formalities and get you teasing each other, both exercise and gentle mockery being surprisingly relaxing. Hemel Hempstead's Snow Centre even has an indoor ski slope for a more exotic experience.
One warning however - be sure to choose a sport you've both done before, and one in which you can talk easily. Two player games such as Squash, Tennis and Badminton are best for this - and as with any date, pick up a few drinks at the nearest bar after you're done.
If heavy exercise sounds like your idea of Hell, try the Chiltern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Your date will really appreciate the scenery, and while a walk and a country pub lunch may sound out of the norm, people do these things for fun - and you'll soon see why.
