A town for dreamers such as J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, there's no reason why Malvern can't be a town for lovers too. No, not lovers, what's that term for people who are dating, and are just seeing where it goes?
There isn't really such a word, but given the town's history, we at eHarmony suspect that Malvern singles could easily make one up.
After all, Tolkien created parts of Middle-Earth based on the Malverns, whereas Lewis (who was actually taught at Malvern College) invented Narnia. Essentially the two most famous fantasy worlds, concocted by two friends who loved this town. Clearly there's some kind of creative passion here - a passion for new experiences, unique experiences. That's what dating is all about after all.
One unique experience would be Malvern's The Theatre of Small Convenience', sited, as it happens, in a converted public convenience. Named the smallest theatre in the world by the Guinness Book of Records, this absolute treasure only seats 12 people, making for a cosy ad intimate date. Even if you can't stand culture, with shows lasting only 8 minutes (and operating on demand), this is a special experience for any special someone, that professional singles can easily fit in around lunch.
Tolkien, Lewis, and the owner of the Small Convenience. These are three Malvern dreamers, so what about a fourth? The nearby Eastnor Castle is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is a complete facade. Medieval in both appearance and name, it was built in the 19th century by a man looking nostalgically back on past times. Now you can too - explore the vast and gorgeous grounds and gardens of this stately pile, or keep an eye out for open days where you go can go on unguided tours of the house. It's a fantastic date for anyone with a sense of beauty.
In terms of bars and restaurants - never be afraid to ask friends, the internet, or even your date - they close and change hands far too frequently to be reliably recommended here, but your people on the ground will always have favourites. Don't forget, your date has to take you out too, and they'd love to give input!
However, if you're really both stuck, the bright lights of the larger towns loom large, from Hereford to Worcester to Cheltenham. Fresh places make for a fresh new experience - which will stimulate your conversation and make this special evening a unique feel.
For all the romantic potential that surrounds the town, dating in Malvern can seem a challenge just because it can be hard to find the right people. With the eHarmony dating website however, you get a bird's eye view of the best of the Malvern dating scene, with a list of specially recommended matches with whom eHarmony believes you are highly compatible. You're free to review matches at leisure, so you can decide who you want to ask out.
Whether you're looking for a long term relationship, or would rather just see how it goes, remember that dating is chiefly about having fun, and discovering new experiences. You might be surprised at how much you get back from reaching out. What are you waiting for? Try eHarmony, and write your own romantic story across the Malverns.
