Meeting singles is something you can and should do when single yourself. After all, there’s a reason people say being single is great - you get to go out, mingle and flirt with other singles. The only hiccup is that it can be a problem to meet enough, or the right, singles if most your friends are couples, or you don’t fancy going to bars and clubs whenever you have some spare time. Most of us prefer doing what we enjoy when socializing and it’s not certain that this will bring you lots of new single friends.
In Belfast you’re lucky because it’s a big city so there are a lot of single people around, even if they don’t happen to attend the events you do. A solution that easily brings you thousands of singles in one go is using an online dating site like flirt.com.
Online dating websites are great because they easily bring all the singles into one room, so to speak, and everyone on there are looking to meet others. It’s not like in a bar where you are’t quite sure if someone is looking to flirt or not.
If you want to meet singles immediately and start flirting then online dating is the solution!
Having met someone through an online dating site a first date is a first meeting so we always recommend to keep it short and sweet to avoid pressure and do something you both enjoy. Ideally something that gives you something to talk about, be it the extensive wine list or the crazy ice cream flavors. It’s easier to flirt when you’re relaxed, so that’s the vibe you’re looking for.
Great places for first dates in Belfast (depending on what atmosphere you’re looking for) include Spoon Street and Udderly Cool for ice cream lovers.
For coffee lovers on the other hand, try Common Grounds, Established Coffee, Clements, Harlem, The Belfast Coffee Company, French Village and Sinnamon.
If you’d like a drink go for The Spaniard, Northern Whig, Sweet Afton Bar & Kitchen, Bert’s Jazz Bar, The Perch, Muriel’s, The Albany, John Hewitt, Garrick Bar and Katy’s Bar.
Prefer a sweet treat? Have a chocolate and go for a walk together. Check out places like Co Couture, The Chocolate Room, Bite to Savour, Hotel Chocolat and Holdens Belgian Chocolates.
In winter you can try Christmas markets, in summer walks around town and at any given time of year farmer’s markets.
