Executive Search Dating - Finding Vancouver Summer Romance: The 5 Best Places to Meet Vancouver Singles This Summer!

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) - Vancouver has often been tagged with the (unenviable) reputation as a difficult city to meet other singles; but is this true? Not so fast, according to Paddi Rice, President and Founder of Executive Search Dating, the Vancouver based Professional Dating Service for busy singles . With the nice weather now here to stay for the summer, and with the many outdoor charms of the world's most liveable city, there are a number of great ways to connect with other Vancouver Singles.

"There is this theory out there that there are NO quality singles left in Vancouver," says Rice. "In fact, in our experience as Vancouver Dating Professionals, there are more high quality singles in Vancouver than in most major North American cities. The challenge, however, is that Vancouver singles do tend to be a little bit more timid, and not quite as likely to approach strangers in social situations."

The question then arises: where are all these great Vancouver singles and how does one meet them? According to Rice, "The one thing that unites all Vancouverites is their love of the outdoors, particularly when the weather is nice. This makes summer a great time to meet some new people and, in particular, people that share a love of the outdoors and a healthy lifestyle."

With summer just around corner, the Professional Matchmakers at Executive Search Dating offer the following list of great summer meeting places for Vancouver singles:

  1. The Grouse Grind: a veritable Vancouver singles institution. Coming up with a good approach line while huffing and puffing your way up a steep incline isn't always easy; but the post climb mingling over a mountain top cocktail can be a great way to break the ice (and sweat).
  2. Dragon Boat Racing: a great way to meet other active singles and get in a workout at the same time. As an added bonus you can see how someone reacts in an intense team setting before committing to a first date!
  3. The Beaches: luckily Vancouver has a variety of beaches with very different vibes, perfect for no matter what your style of approach is. Here are just a few:
    1. Kits Beach: other words known as "The Scene", particularly popular amongst the young, hard body set (or admirers thereof).
    2. Jericho Beach: more laid back; a great place for 'come one, come all' beach barbeques and Ultimate Frisbee games; a Vancouver summer mingling tradition.
    3. English Bay: complete with a vibrant seawall and with Stanley Park right next door, always chock-a-block on a summer weekend with people of every size and shape from every corner and walk of life.
    4. Dog Beach: yes, taking your dog for a walk CAN improve your social life. Connecting with someone new is always easier when you have something in common; and a love for animals is a good start.
  4. Co-ed Volleyball: the summer beach volleyball season is a classic Vancouver tradition with a venue and tournament to fit every skill set; the casual co-ed leagues at Spanish Banks beach provide an inspiring setting to meet some new people.
  5. Summer Festivals: The Jazz and Folk Fest offer optimal mingling opportunities for whatever your musical style and taste… from tie-dyed hippies all the way to chardonnay drinking sophisticates.
