The Cape Town singles scene

One of the world’s most multicultural cities, Cape Town is a place where the fast-paced thrum of big city life merges effortlessly with swoon-worthy natural surroundings. It’s no wonder that both the Telegraph and The New York Times named Cape Town the best place in the world to visit in 2014. It’s also no wonder that singles from all over South Africa are drawn here, coming from far and wide to find new life and love in Cape Town. Dating here means you truly do get to experience fantastic dates with wonderful people – there’s just one problem. You have to meet them first.

Online dating, Cape Town and how EliteSingles can help

For busy urban professionals, meeting someone great is not as easy as it sounds. Workplace romances are often frowned upon and not everyone has the time, the inclination or the energy to spend night after night out and about. That’s why so many South Africans are turning to a place where single men and single women can be upfront about their search for love: they’re trying online dating, with more and more people joining dating websites. 

Cape Town singles have a lot of choice when it comes to dating sites so, if you’re looking for love online, it’s important to opt for the dating site that most suits your needs. For singles who want a long-term relationship built on a foundation of deep compatibility, that choice is simple: EliteSingles.

With an average age range of  30-55, the vast majority of our members are intelligent, successful professionals who have reached a stage in their life where they are ready for love that lasts. We aim to help them find that by basing our match suggestions on a range of compatibility factors, including relationship goals, location in South Africa and personality traits (which we analyse by means of our free personality test).

If you’re ready to meet someone truly compatible, then why not join EliteSingles today? Just click here to get started.

Cape Town dating ideas

Of course, once you’ve started chatting to that person who makes you smile constantly, you’ll be ready for the next step: those all-important first few dates. Happily for those in Cape Town, dating here means being spoiled for choice. From amazing cafes to glorious natural surroundings, Cape Town is full of great date ideas. Here are some of our favourites:

Tips:

Happy couple in Cape Town cafe
Chat over coffee

In an EliteSingles survey, the majority of our members revealed that they believe coffee to be the best first date choice, particularly when meeting someone via dating websites and online dating. Cape Town coffee shops also happen to be among the best in South Africa – it’s a match made in heaven.

While it’s tough to narrow down the great options to just one spot, for smooth brews it’s hard to go wrong with Truth Coffee. Not only does this gorgeous venue offer plenty of seating (crucial for a smooth first date), come nightfall it’s a stone's throw from Long Street – ideal for extending your date just that bit longer.

Penguins, sunshine, beautiful water and stellar views – beach lovers in Cape Town are truly blessed. For those exploring the Cape Town dating scene, it’s always wise to have a favourite beach in mind: sunny days and lazy beachfront dating are the perfect mix of romance and fun.

 Wildlife fans should make a date at Boulders Beach to see some local celebrities; the African penguins that make the rocks here their home. Those who prefer people watching should give Camps Bay a try: the beach is beautiful and the vibrant restaurants and cocktail bars that line the shore are ideal for turning your date up a notch.

Happy man and woman trying scuba diving
Enjoy some excitement

When you want dates with a bit of excitement, Cape Town is the perfect place to be. For a romantic date that comes complete with breathtaking views of this great city, take the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway to the top (the beauty of a sunset here just cannot be topped!).

If heights are not your thing, consider going the other way – down into the depths of the ocean. The waters around Cape Town are teaming with life and colour and, with companies like Into the Blue providing trips that cater for novices as well as experts, a scuba dive here can be one of the most stunning dates you can imagine.
