Vancouver is one of the largest municipalities in Canada and the Greater Vancouver area is the country’s third most populated metropolitan area, making it a great place to meet new people. Sometimes referred to as a city of neighborhoods, each section of Vancouver has its own character and mix of culture.
Historically, the largest ethnic groups in Vancouver were of English, Irish and Scottish origin. British society can be seen in certain areas of Vancouver, including Kerrisdale and South Granville. Germans are a major ethnic group of Vancouver, too. The Chinese are the largest ethnic group in Vancouver and there’s a diverse community that speaks Chinese, Mandarin and Cantonese. Neighborhoods with a heavy Chinese population include Little Italy, Japantown, Greektown, Punjabi Market and Chinatown.
Unfortunately, a lot of people find it difficult to meet new people in Vancouver even through dating sites. This is why it’s so important to think outside the box when it comes to dating. If your friends have failed at playing matchmaker, why not look online for someone new? If you haven’t had luck at the normal bars you frequent, it may be time to head to a singles event, like speed dating.
Living in an area with such unique cultural and language differences should be fun and you can use it as an opportunity to meet new potential partners. Some people see the rich culture of Vancouver as a drawback because they’re always trying to be extra interesting or are only attracted to people who blow them away. When it comes to meeting new people, though, it’s important to remember that you have to keep an open mind. It can take a long time to truly get to know a person. What may seem like incompatibilities at first may end up being the most interesting thing about the other person.
Wondering where to go when you do meet with someone you like? A stroll around town is romantic, inexpensive and full of things to keep your interest. Vancouver has stunning architecture, with many interesting, modern buildings in Downtown, like Robson Square and the Harbour Centre. If you’re strolling around town with a new love, there are a lot of buildings to check out and swoon over. The Vancouver Library Square is a nod to the Roman Colosseum. The Vancouver Art Gallery in Downtown Vancouver is housed in the 1906 neoclassical courthouse. The copper-topped Hotel Vancouver was opened in 1939 and across the street is Christ Church Cathedral, which was designed in the Gothic style and opened in 1894. The cathedral was deemed a heritage building in the mid-1970s. Those places are ideal to meet new people, or as an alternative for dating sites in Vancouver.
