Single life in Tauranga

In terms of eligible singles, Tauranga is one of the fastest growing cities in New Zealand.1 In fact, according to the 2013 census, approximately 41% of Bay of Plenty residents identify as single.2 Yet, it’s not always easy to meet these fellow singles in Tauranga. Indeed, between work and friendship commitments, many single professionals find that they don’t have time or energy for traditional dating methods: after all, bars and clubs can be exhausting and workplace romance can be taboo. Little wonder then that so many local singles are turning online to successfully find romance on their terms.

Tauranga dating with EliteSingles

Indeed, online dating with sites like EliteSingles can be a great way to meet like-minded, relationship-ready Kiwis. If you’re looking for single men or single women with similar personalities and aims to your own, you can find them with us. Our smart-profiling service takes your user preferences into account, making a close note of your relationship goals and lifestyle to ensure that the people you meet are genuine, long-term prospects. This means that, if you’re looking for true compatibility, then you can find it with EliteSingles. Join today to meet your matches.

Date ideas in the Bay of Plenty

Of course, success online brings with it a whole new dilemma: just where are you going to take that special person for the all-important first date? As it turns out, Tauranga date ideas are something of an embarrassment of riches – where else in the world can you swim with dolphins, climb a volcano and drink a glass of wine in the vineyard it was made in (all in time for dinner?)

Dating in this region of scenic lookouts, smoldering volcanoes and sapphire waters can truly be spectacular – but what really makes it special is having the right person to experience it with. Find that person today, by joining us at EliteSingles – then try some of our favourite date ideas. Read more below or try using our map of date idea in Tauranga.
