GO Dating in Durham

Dating in Durham If you’re going out on the pull in Durham you’ll be pleased to know there are numerous pubs filled with people looking for that special someone.

And for those who are too shy to make the first move there is the craze of Speed Dating, which promises you’ll meet a potential date without even trying.

Based on the American phenomenon that has been sweeping the UK, you have the chance to date around 20 people in one evening. Within three minutes flat you have to chat to a partner and decide whether there’s any chemistry before moving on to your next target.

Speed dating in Durham is organised by Ditch or Date, a company that also arranges similar evenings in Newcastle and other North East towns and cities. The event is held regularly in The Warehouse [map] on Back Silver Street, but you have to register via the website www.ditchordate.com. You will not be allowed to take part if you just turn up on the night.

If you fancy trying your luck at one of Durham’s crowded bars then there are a few hotspots where you’re bound to bump into other singletons looking for love.

To meet trendy ladies and gorgeous men head to the cool Hogshead [map] on Saddler Street or the upmarket Hide [map] bar. Here you’ll find guys and gals, many of them students, out on the pull or just looking a great night out.

If you’re looking for somewhere a little more relaxed to meet your perfect partner why not head to one of the traditional pubs where people tend be more laid back. Popular pubs in the city centre include Jimmy Allens [map] and the Swan and Three Cygnets [map], which always seems to pull in a good crowd.
