Newcastle-upon-Tyne or Newcastle (when was the last time you actually heard someone referring to it as Newcastle-upon-Tyne? 19th century?) is a large city so there are plenty of singles around. The main problem when you’re single is to be introduced to the right singles. It’s not always your friends bring new singles into your life and we all know that the bar scene isn’t always ideal for meeting someone. Especially as it gets tedious going out just in the hopes of bumping into someone insanely attractive who happens to be single and take a fancy to you. Going out should be for fun and meeting someone an added bonus, not a necessity.
A good social life doesn’t always ensure you meet singles who take your fancy. Therefore, dating sites like Flirt.com make your life a lot easier. Online you have access to thousands of singles in one place. You can look for singles in your area of town, or singles in nearby towns, as well as singles with similar interests to yourself.
What’s more, you can search for people who are looking for the same as you, be it casual flirting or a serious relationship and anything in between. It’s perfect. And you can start mingling instantly.
The whole point of online dating sites is to work as meeting places - once you’ve met someone you have to take it offline as soon as possible to establish if there’s real life chemistry. The best place to start is a quick, no-pressure, meeting. You’ll both be adjusting to the real life versions of each other, so the best time to check for attraction is actually a second date when you’re both more relaxed. Therefore, keep the first date short and sweet; leaving each other curious for more.
Great things to do for a first date include grabbing a coffee, ice cream, cocktail, or hot chocolate. You can go for a walk around the city, visit a farmer’s market, or sit down somewhere together. Whatever works for you.
Some great places for first dates in Newcastle include: Quay Ingredient, Pumphreys Coffee Centre, Cafe Royal, Carluccio’s, Pleased To Meet You, The Vineyard, Nancy’s Bordello (which, of course, isn’t a bordello…), The Botanist, Tiger Hornsby, lane7, Viva Brazil, Mark Toney and Risis Ices. Enjoy!
