Elgin singles: Stress free dating

Despite being Scotland’s smallest city, Elgin is perhaps better represented by its status as a medieval market town. Its original and cobbled streets are wonderfully preserved, giving it a charming and quaint feel and allowing the impressive surrounding architecture - like the ancient Elgin Cathedral - to speak for itself.

Alongside its resplendent ancient church, the town is home to a charming number of individual shops and recreational facilities.

Like a lot of people nowadays, Elgin singles might find they don’t take the time or the opportunity to make the most of where they live. Similarly, they might feel they are too busy to go out on dates or socialise outside of their immediate friends and family.

This is where online dating website eHarmony comes in. The advantages of online dating for busy and professional singles are massive. Not only do we provide you with a platform to connect with others, but we do it in a way which we believe will guarantee success.

Ever feel like your dates don’t really lead anywhere? This could be because you are meeting people who are incompatible, or who simply agree to a date based on surface factors like initial attraction. At eHarmony, we aim to match you with truly compatible people: those who, like you, are looking for something meaningful and long-term, and whose character and aspirations are similar to yours.

First date tips

The first date can often be nerve-wracking. You want to impress but don’t want to come across as too eager or overly keen. We understand! Here are a few tips to ensure the experience of meeting your match is an enjoyable one...

• Choose a familiar location. Why not go to a cafe in Elgin which you often frequent? A regular at Johnston’s of Elgin Coffee Shop? Then choose this as the setting for your date. Knowing where you’re going will help you feel more relaxed and comfortable in your surroundings. Knowing any of the staff might also be a bonus – a cheery hello in your direction from a waiter is a sure fire way to appear confident and cool in front of your date.

• Keep it snappy. Elgin dating doesn’t have to mean an entire afternoon or evening out. Why not keep it relatively casual and suggest a meeting in your lunch break or straight after work? A quick drink and an hour of stimulating conversation in local Flanagan’s Bar could be all you need to leave you and your date wanting more.

• Be yourself. There’s no need to pretend to be something you’re not. If you’ve been honest in your online questionnaire, then eHarmony has already matched you with someone who we believe will appreciate your individual character. You can go on that first date with the confidence that there’s someone out there for you – all that’s left to determine is the chemistry. Dating in Elgin no longer has to be nerve-wracking.
