When you're new in town, it can be hard to know where to look to meet up with like-minded singles. Maybe you're sick of the bar scene
, or don't have much time to devote to dating. Fortunately, Vancouver has a number of singles events and singles groups for people of all ages and backgrounds.
Some of the pros of attending Vancouver singles events or joining a singles group:
You can meet a number of people who are looking for a relationship.
You can enjoy fun activities with other singles who share your interests.
The cons of attending a singles event or group:
Some charge a membership fee to join, and it can get expensive to attend too many of the events.
You may see the same group of single people at lots of events, so if you aren't interested in dating anyone, it may become a waste of your time.
Vancouver Singles Events
There are a number of Vancouver singles events organizers who throw various parties and activities throughout the month. For some, like the Vancouver Singles Socials and Events Activities Club
you will pay a membership fee (usually around $20 to $40 per month), plus any costs like buying drinks or movie tickets. Some of the activities this Vancouver singles group offers are martial art Kung Fu, nature walks, and comedy nights at local clubs.
Don't want to shell out the cash? You can also try free singles groups in Vancouver like Meet Market Adventures
. The site is free to join, and the activity fees are quite reasonable – around $10 or $15 for many of them. Learn salsa dancing, sushi-making
, or go kayaking
If you're in Vancouver for your job, you may also want to explore various Vancouver business social groups. At business singles groups like Vancouver Minglers
, you'll pay an admission fee to attend a cocktail or dinner event to meet career professionals – after work hours of course!
Vancouver Speed Dating
Don't have time to devote a whole evening to one date? Take a look at sites like 25 Dates
and Fast Life
, which allow you to find singles events around the city where you can date a few dozen people in just one night. It may sound a bit industrial, but who knows - you could end up meeting your future husband or wife! At speed dating events, you'll meet other singles over drinks, and fortunately, if someone is boring, annoying or strange, you only have to chat with them for a few minutes. As you date, you write down who you are interested in, and if they like you too, you can contact them for a second date - one on one.
No matter what your interests are, you'll find singles groups and events in Vancouver to fit your schedule, hobbies and personality. It really depends on whether you want to let things happen naturally and meet people through your school, work or friends, or if you want to try and help things along by joining a singles group.
