Sometimes marketed as the 'English Riviera' by slippery tourist boards, Torquay, along with neighbouring Paignton, has so much beauty around it in summer. The trouble is of course, that the cool bars, warm evenings and serene bay are pretty much dominated by the tourist. When they leave, the small town feels quite ghostly, especially on a rainy day.
As you'd expect, this doesn't help the Torquay dating scene. However, if you're one of the many Torquay singles seriously looking for a relationship, or at least romance, then why not try a dating website like eHarmony?
There are a lot of single people out there, but most of us aren't content with just anyone. Yet the average free dating site tends to just list all the singles in an area, with no other help than that. You have photos to rely on, and that's about it.
At eHarmony however, we know that there can't be proper, long-lasting relationships without many things in common, and so we strive to deliver a more personal way of dating. Using a more scientific approach than the typical Torquay dating site, eHarmony will suggest matches only if they are highly compatible with you. That means you get quality, not quantity, and makes for some truly fantastic dates.
Why not give eHarmony a try now? It's free to review matches, so it's a great way of seeing how many local singles you're highly compatible with - it could be anything from 1 to 100!
As for dating in Torquay, quite asides from the quality restaurants, there's a beach! Even in Winter, a walk along this sandy stretch, and besides the boats in the bay, is full of romantic potential. On cold days, have a thermos flask of hot chocolate prepared, to stop chattering teeth and warm the heart of your date. It's a fantastic free dating idea for days when all you want to do is meet up and talk.
If that doesn't suit, sacrifice the cinema for a more theatrical outing, with a classy evening at the Princess Theatre. Comedy gets you laughing, tragedy gets you talking, romance puts you in the mood whereas music is a great chance to lighten up and show off the good taste of your ear.
Finally, if you're happy to visit romantic lands across Devon, one idea might be to head out towards Buckfastleigh, on the edge of Dartmoor National Park. Buckfast Abbey, makers and peddlers of the infamous 'tonic' wine, adds a calm Catholic twist to your average daytrip, infusing a remarkably quiet spirit of meditation into any romantic walk through the gardens there.
Whatever you decide to do, register with eHarmony for serious romance, and discover Torquay dating made easy. It could be the first step to something (or someone) really special.
