Dating in Derby

1.       Picnics with a difference - a cake party on the Arboretum

On any sunny day, a picnic is not only a fantastically quiet and intimate way to get chatting with your date, but it's also a completely free dating idea.  Even in the early days of any romance, there're no awkward silences that can't be converted into a chilled-out atmosphere.  So in event of a conversational misstep, just lie back and sunbathe, enjoy the fresh air, and let your dog (if you have one) do the work in charming your date.

And while a picnic in England's oldest surviving public park is good enough on its own merits, you can really go the extra mile by making as much of your own stuff as possible; from cupcakes to lasagne.  Challenge your date to a bakeoff, and discover how a shared passion for food can lead to a shared passion for each other.

2.       Brainy dates head to the Derby Museum and Art Gallery

You'd be surprised at how many people are interested in art.  Like the fine sport of cheese rolling, it has a legion of hidden fans.  The British maintain a secret pleasure from viewing perfectly painted genitalia, bright colours and shiny things.  So if your date has an artistic background, propose a brief wander round the city art gallery before retiring for that meal.  And while you shouldn't pretend to knowledge you don't have, the subjective nature of any artwork will allow you to express any number of opinions and really get the conversation started.

There's a lot more to do in Derby - and plenty of horses to bet on, so to speak, that might carry you and your date to the end of a memorable evening.  So why not find the person to go with using eHarmony, and discover the fabulous online dating Derby has to offer.

Running the Derby dating gauntlet - top tips for dates in Derbyshire's largest city

In no way related to horses, with the exception that an old Earl of Derby who (rather vexingly for the local tourist board) began the tradition of the Epsom Derby elsewhere, searching for romance in the city (or even nearby Nottingham) can still feel like a race.

With eHarmony however, there's no need to be rushed.  New matches crop up all the time, and with a pool of singles tailored to suit you, you're always likely to find someone you'll grow to love.  After all, eHarmony measures people for their compatibility with other Derby singles, making for better quality dates between better quality matches.

Come and see - fill out the eHarmony questionnaire, take a look at your free to review matches and discover who we think you're compatible with.  Maybe you'll disagree, maybe you won't.  A fantastic date could be just over the hill.
