Dunedin Single Life

Nestled in between rolling hills and wild beaches sits Dunedin, New Zealand’s first official city.1 Here you can find elegant Victorian buildings, colourful student headquarters and a population who knows that they’ve found a pretty amazing place to call home. It should come as no surprise, really, to hear that this city of stately stone and outdoor adventure was recently voted New Zealand’s most beautiful!2

Yet, for all its charm, this can be a tricky city in which to find love. Singles on the Dunedin dating scene often find themselves running up against the same time-honoured complaints: the workplace is too busy for office romance; the cafes and museums are already full of happy couples and finding someone long-term in a bar or pub can be a needle in a haystack situation at best.

Dunedin dating with EliteSingles

It is little wonder, then, that so many Dunedinites are turning online to find someone special. For those with particular dating criteria, using a website like EliteSingles makes sense – there’s no need to wade through student-packed bars or couple-heavy venues when you have access to a service that brings like-minded singles to you!

We help Kiwis in their search for love by offering a safe, supportive online dating website with a focus on intelligent matchmaking. We take our members’ locations, relationship preferences and personalities into account when suggesting a match, ensuring that an EliteSingles pairing is always made with true compatibility in mind. If you’re looking for smarter dating in Dunedin then join us today!
