With a population where 80% are classed as rural, you'd think Lancashire singles would have a hard time even meeting a new person, let alone the kind of oddly attractive one they might wish to take on a date. The vastness of the countryside and the lonely commute might weigh some down. However, always remember that Londoners would kill for a scenic cottage here, and with nearby major settlements including Preston, Lancaster
andBlackpool, there are still plenty of places to meet and mingle.
That said, if you struggle to find the time to make matches that suit you, then eHarmony, a leading Lancashire dating website may be able to help. Register, and fill out a questionnaire to tell us all a little bit about yourself, and we'll recommend the most compatible single people near you! Bringing entire villages together has never been so easy, and whether you're looking for professional singles for a casual date or a rambling man ready for long-term romance, where you go from that first conversation is entirely up to you. What's more, it won't have cost you a penny, leaving you money for that first icebreaker drink.
Most of the cities of Lancashire have their own dedicated article, just for them, so ignore those for a bit and watch us sing and dance about the sheer gorgeousness of the county itself (you may have to imagine the dance). After all, with borders close to the famous views of the Lake District and the quiet scenery of the Yorkshire Dales, there's plenty of opportunities for walks, and free dating is never easier when even the muddiest path surrounded by beauty.
Closer to home, never forget either the Ribble Valley or the Forest of Bowland. Just don't expect too many trees in said forest - as the word originally referred to a hunting ground. The aristocracy may no longer sound their horns against the fox here (at least not unless they want to outrace police cars on horseback), but if you're confident with your conversation, these are wonderful places to catch the heart of your date.
When it comes to things to do in Lancashire, Blackpool wins hands down. Having spent a good century attracting tourists, you can engage in anything from crazy golf, to ice skating and burlesque. If you want a wild nightlife, and feel this would be good for your date, head here. The only downside is the crowds, so try to enter this dating scene out of season, and remember that a donkey ride on the beach will give far more opportunity to conversation than a loud live music scene filled with sweating drunk tourists.
Alternatively, if history is more your thing, Lancaster has a reassuring number of old and lovely buildings. Otherwise, head to Lytham Hall between Blackpool and Preston, or Rufford Old Hall near Ormskirk. The stately homes will impress your date, and provide something different from the usual theatre/cinema/restaurant date.
And once more, if you are looking for the best of the usual, Blackpool is the place to be.
