Are you new to the county? Then welcome! It's got good bits and bad bits like anywhere, but it's the people that make it shine, which bodes well for dating! But if you're a bit unsettled, and don't know the area so well, you might not be too confident as to where to go out on a date.
Well, first things first, don't be afraid to ask the one you go out with - if they're local and you're new, they'll be more than happy to share their favourite places with you. Everyone likes to play the expert, and there's no shame in listening to your companion's views.
Secondly, whether you're searching for quality restaurants in Consett, lively cocktail bars in Bishop Auckland, or something to do in Seaham, the County Durham dating scene can seem a bit deprived. Don't be deceived though! For a start, the stony beauty of Durham itself is an attraction for any date - the ramparts and medieval buildings being perfect for believers in a modern fairytale.
Otherwise, the natural beauty of the county, like much of the North, is added to here by often poignant remains of the UK's industrial heritage. Castles still dot the landscape, and if you live in, say, Darlington, walks on the nearby moors, or even out in the Pennines, are entirely possible and a great way to get in some uninterrupted conversation with your date.

Once effectively ruled by the bishops of the Roman Catholic church, County Durham doesn't have any need for celibacy - for while it may often be cold and wet, it's a place for real British romance.
That said, with so much of the region having suffered under decades of economic neglect, the old mining towns that populate the otherwise quite rural county have seen better days, which poses a challenge for County Durham singles looking for romance. After all, while communities still pretty much thrive, working and/or professional singles might struggle to find the time for meeting people.
eHarmony is a well-known, leading dating website that makes dating in County Durham simpler by helping you find the most compatible singles on our database. Simply fill in a free questionnaire, and we'll compare the results with those of other County Durham singles on the database.

That way, no matter which matches you talk to, you know that there's potential.
Asking them out on a date is easy - so be proactive, who knows? Maybe they've been looking at you too, but just couldn't pluck up the confidence to ask. In romance, victory goes to the ones who make their interest clear, so get out there and rock the world of County Durham dating with your newfound partner.
