It's the fashion! eHarmony and dating in Plymouth

Cruelly named 2007's 'worst dressed city' in Britain, and not far off it in 2008, you'd think it looked bleak for Plymouth singles across the city's dating scene, as in these busy days it's hard to find the time to kick back and relax.  But, there is a glimmer of light at the end of your working week with tailored matches from eHarmony.  Our specialist dating website matches you with deeply compatible singles from across Plymouth and the UK - you choose!  Unlike the average Plymouth dating site, at eHarmony there is a small subscription, so you can be confident that our single members are as serious and excited about dating as you are.

A lot of the more obvious dating ideas are clichéd because they work, but take the twists we outline here, and turn yours into something extra special:

Dress up for your date!

Buying clothes for each other may sound like a party gimmick, but it's a great way to know each other and get the conversation started on fashion.  The last of Plymouth's vintage clothing stores may have closed, but you can still pick out garments from any era on Mutley Plain.  Put up a middle finger to the fashion industry and their 'worst dressed' surveys as you show off your (hopefully) stylish new outfits.  Retire to Central Park in your finest with a bottle of Pimms, and speak in comedy plummy accents for the rest of the day.  Alternatively, pick your own ensemble from amongst the secondhand stock, and impress with your unerring sense of style.

Drinks for your date!

Devon sometimes gets stereotyped as land of the "ooh-arr", but it isn't just the cider farms that operate here, the alcohol industry has a number of fumbling fingers in the county.  Take your dating partner out for drinks with a difference, with one of these as your destination:

1. The Black Friars Distillery

Ah, the famous Plymouth Gin, the city's best known export.  Why not invite your date out to the distillery?  Tours are available where you can learn about the making of the gin, and go on a tutored tasting.  With the right package, keen students can even have a go at distilling their own recipe together.

2. Buckfast Abbey

Though a community of Roman Catholic monks may not seem like the liveliest place on the Plymouth dating scene (and, to be honest, it isn't), the pilgrimage into Dartmoor National Park will not go unrewarded, as British monks are poised to take over the Valentine's Day market with their handmade goodies.  Stock up for a second date with chocolates and incense, and the infamous Buckfast Tonic Wine.

Dinner for your date!

So you have your chocolate and your holy wine, incense and fantastic clothes.  But before you retire to the romantic candlelit ambience of your pad, what about dinner?  Try a Chinese at the Noodle Lounge, or sit down to sensational Turkish cuisine at the quirkily named Shirley Valentine's Taverna.  Our favourite is B.E.D Restaurant, which mixes Mediterranean and French food.  Bring along your wine, and soak up the atmosphere as the conclusion to your official re-entry into the dating world.

Why not give eHarmony a go today?  With a matchmaking system honed over ten years of success, it could be the first step you need towards finding that fascinating new date.
