The surest way to the heart is through the stomach, and it's as true for the Northampton dating scene as anywhere else. The town sports a huge variety of top quality restaurants and bars. But what to choose for which occasion?
Everyone is familiar with that most famous scene from Disney's The Lady and the Tramp, and while you're unlikely to find yourselves kissing accidentally by whit of a misplaced spaghetti strand, an Italian is by far the most traditional romantic meal. For that very reason, it's also very often overdone. However, as an old staple of a dating lifestyle, Italian restaurants such as La Pergola and Marefair Roma serve good food in romantic settings. Try a date in the intimate surroundings of the Royal Theatre beforehand, a number of the productions held there have often been influenced by Italy, which forms the setting of so many Shakespeare plays.
At once exotic and ubiquitous, the flavours of Indian food are becoming well known, but the restaurants can still be hard to beat. Head to the Mem-Saab for excellent meals, and then head next door to the adjoining Corkers Champagne and Cocktail Bar for some high-end alcohol. That said, the heady mix of flavours is definitely not for everyone, and those with sensitive tongues might be better off trying some other cuisine.
The oh-so-traditional British meal. Sausage and mash, with gravy and a mouth-watering toffee pudding. There's never going to be a shortage of places serving this particular kind of food, but the Church Bar & Restaurant is the place to go for romantic atmosphere. The Malt Shovel Tavern is another venue, which often hosts live music, and before this dinner head out to examine some of Northampton's history, with a visit to Abingdon Park, where the two of you can play tennis and listen to the players on the bandstand.
The best of all food types with new restaurants cropping up frequently, the food of Spain is definitely in fashion. Tapas allows you to pick and choose what you like, sharing with your date as you do it. Those dating in Northampton might try Les Olives, but further afield Coventry or Milton Keynes host a number of fabulous restaurants.

If Alan Carr was the typical Northamptonian, all the donkeys would walk on their front legs. Fortunately, the Chatty Man is one-of-a-kind, but it's still undeniable that Northampton singles are fond of a good natter. In an ideal world, romantic lives would reflect this. But the UK isn't an ideal world, it's a modern one - so there just isn't the time to get out and meet people as there once was.
Yet with a dating website like eHarmony you can reach out across the web to find the people best suited to you. After all, eHarmony's matching system has been honed over a decade, and knows how to unite two similarly minded people - so you're only ever recommended quality. Try it yourself, and see.
