Ottawa dating: open your heart to love with eharmony

by eharmony Editorial Team - July 27, 2022

There’s nothing quite like dating in Ottawa, and it’s not just because it’s the nation’s capital and fourth-largest city. With its gorgeous architecture, beautiful natural surroundings, and multicultural heart, it’s no wonder that over three hundred thousand singles in Ottawa find it such a great place to live and date.

While Ottawans are friendly (as most Canadians are), they do tend to stick to their own groups, meaning that dating in Ottawa can require a little extra effort. Luckily for anyone planning on matchmaking in Ottawa, eharmony can help make finding that special someone to explore this beautiful city with that much easier.

Where to meet singles in Ottawa

Did you know that one in four Ottawans were born outside of Canada? Because of that, you can be sure that in such a multicultural city, there are a lot of ways to meet new people, including:

  • Taking a language class: Yes, you could get by with just English, but a new language lets you expand your horizons as well as meet new people.
  • Joining the action at a Mayfair Theatre classic screening, where audiences are encouraged to dress up and act along. Who knows? You might just find your leading man or lady.
  • Exploring Ottawa’s ByWard Market is a top tourist destination for a reason. Drop in for a beaver tail and to meet fellow foodie Ottawa singles.
  • Being outdoorsy Ottawa singles will find plenty of kindred spirits at the Ottawa Outdoor Club, which hosts regular camping and hiking events.
  • Rather stay indoors? Take in some culture at the National Art Gallery and strike up a conversation over art.

There’s so much to see and do here, it can actually be detrimental to dating in Ottawa. What are the odds that any potential partners decided to do the same thing at the same time? Which is why an online dating site or app like eharmony is such a great option – it allows you to look for love no matter where you are or what time it is.
