Navigating the L.A. singles scene

In the tourist version of L.A., the Hollywood sign is something to be exclaimed over, the Venice Beach boardwalk sounds like a relaxing day out and the words ‘rush-hour on the 405’ don’t inspire terror. In the other L.A., it’s, well, a little different. If you belong to this second L.A. you’ll know a few simple truths: one, this is not just a tourist city, it’s home; two, commuting is terrible; and three, it’s possible that dating in Los Angeles is even worse. Indeed, while there are so many things to love about L.A., the lack of opportunity to meet singles here is not one of them!

The main part of the problem is not a lack of singles (far from it in fact – the most recent Census showed that only around 41% of the local population is married). Instead, the tricky thing about dating in Los Angeles is finding those fellow singles. Happily though, there is a way to meet the kind of single Angelenos that you actually want to be dating. You just have to look in the right place.

And, for those single men and single women who are dating in Los Angeles because they want to find a long-lasting, deeply harmonious relationship, that right place is EliteSingles.

Dating in Los Angeles: where to go?

The term ''dating in Los Angeles'' means different things to different people. Depending on who you talk to, it might just be downtown, it might stretch to Long Beach and up to The Valley. It might refer to dating all over L.A. County, with some Angelenos even throwing Orange County, the San Fernando Valley and Simi Valley into the mix. While no two SoCal singles will agree on the exact boundaries, one thing's certain: this place has a wealth of great date ideas. Here are some of the highlights:

Tips:

Two cocktails in martini glasses with maraschino cherries
Coffee or a cocktail?

Meeting up for a coffee is always a great date idea, especially when you pick a spot like Two Guns Espresso in Manhattan Beach (they also have locations in DTLA and El Segundo). This New Zealand--owned joint is home to both friendly NZ vibes and Antipodean coffee – meaning that if you want to see what the flat white fuss is about, then this is the place to start.

Alternatively, try heading for one of L.A.'s famous rooftop bars. A perfect option is High Rooftop Lounge in Venice, a panoramic bar that serves up craft beer and killer signature cocktails while also offering fantastic views. To gaze across Muscle Beach or out towards downtown at sunset – the choice is yours!

Get yourself to the beach

Sun, sand, and surf are facts of life in this part of SoCal, so it makes sense to make the most of them when it comes to dating. Head to Santa Monica Pier for a full-on, cheesy tourist date (it can be surprisingly romantic at sunset!). If you prefer swoon-worthy views, take a trip down to Laguna for a beautiful, cliff top stroll through stunning Heisler Park.

If the beach is too crowded (or if it's one of those rare gray L.A. days), take your date to Redbird. Perfect for a romantic dinner date, Redbird offers the kind of elegance goes hand in hand with romance. And, if it turns out to be a sunny day after all, their patio roof retracts so you can feel like you're dining al fresco (if that's not enough, they also do a killer brunch!)

Couple taking in the view at Griffith Observatory
Do something distinctly 'L.A.'

Every now and then you have to go ''full tourist'' to really appreciate just how great your own city is. And in L.A., there's nowhere better to do this than Griffith Observatory, particularly if you're lucky enough to be there during a smogless twilight. Not only is the Observatory fascinating in itself, the views out over L.A. are breathtaking, sure to add a little romance to your date night.

Another only-in-L.A. date is a night spent with Cinespia at Hollywood Forever. Movie fans are bound to find something that appeals from their eclectic selection of outdoor screenings, held all throughout the summer. Come with a blanket, a picnic, and your date and know that you are doing dating in Los Angeles the right way.
