Begin online dating with eHarmony and meet Southampton singles you'll really click with.
Sheltered by the Isle of Wight and enjoying easy access to the sea, Southampton has always thrived as a port. Love flourishes here too, with a number of options for city singles looking for a good time. Here are six dating ideas to try out around Southampton:
Take a train to nearby Bournemouth, and have a barbecue on the beach. Mess around in the sea with inflatable animals, or gambling away all that pesky spare change at one of the waterfront amusement arcades.
Trek out to Arundel, a millenia old in parts. Still home to an English Duke, you and your date can tour the ornate interior and fantasise about an earlier time, where everyone wore nice things, people fought for glory and honour, and smallpox was a thing made up by party-pooper historians.
When Jane Austen stayed here, she took inspiration from Southampton for Mansfield Park. Two centuries later, explore the Old Town once more, following the trail named in her honour. A good excuse for a DVD marathon afterwards.
When you talk to your date, discover what sports they've done. If they've ever touched a mountain, head out to the Alpine Snowsports Centre for a feel of the Rockies. Race down the slopes, and if you're happy to risk your pride, try the jumps to impress.
The New Forest is outstandingly beautiful, so pack lunch and take your date out for a trip. Spend the evening climbing trees, with the animals at the wildlife park, or while away the hours building shelters from the brush.
The Isle of Wight is the ever-present emerald gem, and ferries from Southampton are common. Escape the mainland with your bikes, and speed (or pant) up the Isle's coast to the tiny port of Yarmouth for a liquid/chocolate reward. The ferry from there can take you to Lymington in the New Forest, where you may catch the return train.

Dating shouldn't be a chore - at least, not in Southampton, in 2007 considered to be one of the UK's best cities for singles between 18 and 35. However, with the morning rush to work and the tired slog back home, professional singles in particular don't always get the time they need to make a new acquaintance, especially not one with whom you could potentially begin a relationship with.
There's still hope though! eHarmony makes it easy to meet the Southampton singles you're most likely to get along with, using a clever compatibility matching system. Boasting a large membership all looking for quality romance, eHarmony makes dating in Southampton a whole lot simpler.
