5 Reasons Vancouver Singles Should CELEBRATE The Arrival Of Labour Day

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 18, 2010) - With the end of summer now in site, many Vancouver singles wonder whether their hopes of meeting someone special should also be shelved for another year, together with their sun lotion and beach towels. Absolutely not, says Paddi Rice, President of Executive Search Dating, the Professional Matchmaking Service catering to busy Vancouver singles. In fact, the arrival of the September Labour Day weekend can actually be a real boon for local singles looking to connect with someone new.

"September can actually be a GREAT time to meet new people," says Rice. "One of the big reasons is that there are just more people in town, returned fresh and tanned from their vacations with a positive attitude ripe for meeting new people. The other advantage of September, particularly in Vancouver, is the fact that it may well be the BEST weather month of the entire year, which just naturally puts people into a positive frame of mind."

But doesn't the end of summer and the inevitable arrival of winter make people less likely to want to meet someone new? Actually, says Rice, "I think the fact that the summer is behind us and that the winter will soon be upon us can actually make singles even MORE receptive to meeting new people, with whom they can potentially spend some quality time with during the longer, cooler evenings that come with winter."

Here are 5 reasons Vancouver singles should CELEBRATE the arrival of Labour Day:

  1. The 'Reverse Exodus': with the summer holidays now behind us, most Vancouverites are back in town and eager to get out and meet new people. 
  2. The 'Best Weather Month' in Vancouver: many Vancouverites consider September to be the BEST weather month of the entire year. The streets and patios in the city will be packed with singles trying to take advantage of the nice weather before the dark days of November arrive.
  3. The 'Looking Good/Feeling Good' factor: with many Vancouver singles just returning from vacations; or having spent days outside enjoying the summer weather, their summer tans and summer clothing will be in fine form, perfect for a little singles flirting.
  4. Oktoberfest: as many Germans will tell you 'Oktoberfest' (one of the most celebrated festivals in all of Europe) actually takes place in September. What better way to meet people than with live music, sing-along's and authentic German beer. For a real taste of how its done in Germany, check out the Vancouver Alpen Club's Oktoberfest celebrations on September 18th and 25th.
  5. The beginning of 'Sports Season': with the beginning of the NFL football season, the Major League Baseball playoffs, and the opening of the NHL pre-season amongst others, it's a great time to connect with sports minded singles at any of the innumerable sports lounges across the city. Nothing connects Vancouverites more than their loves of sports.
