It was a very chance exchange as neither of us felt we were really going to find the right person but I took the plunge to write when you offered a discount and it took off from swapping emails and phone numbers. We are in fact a perfect match. Absolute up front honesty was the key. Thank you.

Singles in Edinburgh

With nearly half of its population single (49%), there's never been a better time to start your dating adventure in Edinburgh. Luckily, the city is well-versed in fun and romantic date options, so there should be something to everyone's liking.

Edinburgh's many cafes, restaurants, and bars provide ample opportunity for the perfect date night, whether that's sipping on cocktails, enjoying an evening of fine dining, or eating plenty of haggis, neeps, and tatties.

Scotland is known for its rich varieties of whisky, and Edinburgh can offer you and your date a world-class whisky tour that'll leave you both feeling rather merry. But while Scotland's renowned for its whisky, their gin's pretty great too. So why not take your date of a tour of the Edinburgh Gin Distillery if that's more to your tasting?

There's plenty on the cultural scene too, with Edinburgh's many museums and art galleries. And history buffs might want to add a trip to Edinburgh Castle and the monarch's official residence at Holyroodhouse to their list.

Or, if you'd prefer some quiet time to chat and get to know each other, a picnic or walk around one of Edinburgh's city gardens will do just the job. The Botanical Gardens, Dunbar's Close, and Dr Neil's Garden are must-visits.

So if you're a single man or woman looking for love in Edinburgh, why not join Rest Less Dating today? We've helped many people find love through our dating site, and we're keen to help you find your perfect love-match next.
