Executive Search Dating, the Vancouver-based Matchmaker for busy professionals, wants to help Vancouver singles meet their special someone this summer. “Summer is actually a great time to meet someone new in Vancouver”, says Paddi Rice, President and Founder of Executive Search Dating. “With the nice weather finally here there are lots of ‘summer-centric’ romantic activities to do in the city. Add the fact that people are generally more positive and approachable in the summer, and you have a virtual ‘perfect dating storm’ for Vancouver singles!” Here are Executive Search Dating's “Top 5 Ways To Find Vancouver Summer Lovin”: 1. More patio, less pressure: an afternoon drinks date on a summer patio is a Vancouver dating classic! Move your date outdoors and you’ll find a more casual setting… the perfect vibe for a first or second date. 2. Ignite your dating life: the summer barbeque season is a sure-fire winner for connecting with new people. Whether you are hosting or just attending, there will never be a more relaxed and friendly place to meet someone new in Vancouver. 3. Music and warm summer nights: summer is THE outdoor music season, with plenty of outdoor festivals and concerts to choose from. A perfect place to meet like-minded music lovers, or to take someone special on a second or third date. It’s like taking your date and a favourite artist for a romantic evening walk in the park. 4. The summer ‘picnic date’: be creative this summer; pack a picnic basket, blanket and your date and hit Jericho or Sunset beach for a world renowned Vancouver sunset. 5. The world is your ocean: who says dates have to be land-based? Hire some Kayaks and spend a summer afternoon touring English Bay… cap it off with an ‘after-paddle’ drink on Granville Island.
