Meeting Portland Singles Who Suit You
For a city of its size, Portland sure has a big reputation; famous for being America’s Alternative capital, there’s a vibrant energy about the place. This means that, generally speaking, meeting cool new people isn’t so hard here – but as Portland singles know well, finding a long-lasting, committed relationship is a totally different matter.
Indeed, if you’re one of the city’s busy professionals, it can feel near-impossible to find! That’s why finding a dedicated, professional dating site is so important: it’s the simplest way to meet singles who are on your wavelength. EliteSingles is ideal for this purpose – not only are many of our members single professionals between the ages of 30 and 55, we have a diverse range of people using our site. No matter what you’re looking for, be a specific like lesbian dating, Vietnamese dating, atheist dating, or simply someone like-minded, we’re to help you find dating that suits you.

Top Portland Date Ideas
Dating in Portland means being spoiled for choice when it comes to date venues. From hipster hangouts to award-winning restaurants, Portland has it all.
Outside the eateries, Portland singles can make the most of Oregon’s great outdoors; hitting the urban parks, visiting Multnomah Falls, and hiking the Columbia River Gorge are all excellent ideas for a more active date. For a date at a gentler pace, enjoy dinner and live music on board the Portland Spirit – a charming cruise is the epitome of traditional dating, and perfect for when you want to turn on the old fashioned charm.

Keep Dating Weird
Studies show that most singles would prefer to date a book-lover, and it just so happens that this is a book lover’s dream city. Take your date to Powell’s City of Books – this iconic bookstore (the largest in the world) is an ideal venue for a non-traditional date. Attend an author reading or signing, browse through the thousands of books, get to know each other while finding your next great read – it’s ideal.
If you want a more interactive Portland date idea, head for OMSI. This science museum isn’t just for schoolkids on field trips – keep an eye on their calendar for fun activities like cider-making classes, or for OMSI after dark, an adults-only night out that combines science with booze and entertainment. Learn the science of beer, taste local food, and have a truly great date.
Experience Portland Foodie Heaven
They say that the way to the heart is through the stomach and, despite the cliché, we couldn’t agree more! Those who believe in the gastronomic path to love are really in luck in Portland: with this city’s mix of hip, diverse cuisines and delicious Pacific Northwest ingredients, there’s always something delicious to discover. Whether it’s coffee and cakes at Voodoo Donuts, or a craft brewery tour, Portland’s got it all.
For a really romantic Portland date night, head to the gorgeous Coopers Hall Winery & Taproom, a firm favorite. With a laid back but elegant atmosphere it is an ideal date setting. And the menu offers delicious locally sourced and seasonal ingredients to provide excellent options with the benefit of being able to sample wines on tap! What’s not to love!
Reconnect with Oregon’s Outdoors
Who doesn’t love Washington Park? Portland’s backyard is a place where generations of Portland singles have fallen in love, making it a perfect backdrop for a date. If your date is really into gardening, make sure to visit the rose garden, the Hoyt Arboretum and the Japanese garden; if they’re more of an animal person, head straight for the Oregon Zoo. Either way you’ll feel the romance with every step.
In the summer, a really romantic date idea is to have a picnic and watch the sunset together, and in Portland there’s no place more romantic than Skidmore Bluffs. Parking can be tricky, so get there early (or park and walk), then claim a spot looking out over the city. As the sun sinks and the light reflections start to twinkle in the Willamette River, you’ll feel the magic.
