It's little known, but a young Tolkien spent his childhood days in the West Midlands, and the leafy greenery and rolling hills inspired the creation of the Shire. Some literary critics say that the scene from Lord of the Rings where the hobbits return to their homeland to find it an industrial waste was a reflection on the urban sprawl soon to engulf the region. True or not, there's still plenty of romantic fantasy hiding away in the tarmac maze.
· Take your date out to a medieval fair at Kenilworth Castle, where in the summer a series of events are held, even including a joust! Take a picnic as well, so you can enjoy the gardens with a full and happy belly.
· Dating West Midlands singles in winter need never be troublesome again, if you're careful to book one of the candlelit nights at Aston Hall. With live music, actors, and the thrilling atmosphere of a stately house at night, it's sure to prove a night to remember. Imagine yourself as an Elvin philosopher warlord in the mighty halls of Rivendell, or if that's a little too nerdy, feel free to enjoy the evening as yourselves.
· Take a step out of your hobbit hole by dinner dating at the Gas Street Basin in Birmingham. While not quite Venice, this canal lined area plays host to a number of good bars and restaurants.
· Go there and back again, with a visit to the Black Country Museum near Dudley. For history, fairground games, costumed actors, and, more importantly, old-fashioned sweeties, this expansive open-air museum will show you a world more like it was in Tolkien's day, and provide a unique day out for you and your date.

Sprawling and bustling, a land of bright lights and hundreds of thousands of strangers, the West Midlands dating scene can sometimes seem crowded and impersonal. From the high rises of mighty Birmingham to the squat concrete blocks of Coventry, West Midlands singles are hardly rare on the street, but chances to meet them and get to know them are. Working and professional singles for instance will struggle to fit time in around their busy lifestyles, and frankly anyone can be forgiven for being shy in starting that conversation with the cute one on the bus.
