As a smaller UK city, the ex-industrial Sheffield can sometimes find itself forgotten by outsiders. The 590,000-strong city sits right by the Peak District, so should really be on everyone’s list to visit. The city is affluent, but not too expensive, which means that single people in Sheffield tend to have cash to splash on dating! Because the city is on the smaller side, dating in Sheffield can sometimes feel tricky. There are a few matchmaking and dating agencies in the city, but these can be expensive and time consuming to use. Lots of people in Leeds are turning to online dating as a more user friendly option.
Online dating allows single people in Leeds to branch out a little, meeting people in other Northern cities online and then using the great rail connections to visit them for a first date! Sheffield is known for its steel making and metallurgy, though there’s obviously a lot less of this now than during the industrial revolution. Big regeneration projects that have been going on all over the city since the early 2000s mean that a lot of change has occurred recently, opening up new spaces for leisure activities and therefore for dates. What better way to get to know someone new than getting to know a new part of your city at the same time?
With its gorgeous natural surroundings, the most obvious date from Sheffield is a hike in the Pennines. If you’ve had your fill of mountains, however, or just aren’t that outdoorsy, Sheffield has urban dating covered too. Sit down for an eight-course tasting menu at Joro if you want to impress your date, or grab dinner at Ego and a show at the Crucible. If you’re more downmarket, there are coffee shops aplenty, or the Cricket Inn for a roast and the Streetfood Chef for tacos. Want to do something your date will remember for a while? How about a cave tour at Peak Caverns. Do be careful down there, though. You don’t want any bashed head on the first date stories in your wedding speeches!
About 280000 of Sheffield’s residents are male. With Yorkshire being Yorkshire, you might get chatting over a pint, though that’s not the way things usually go in the UK. And if you’re not from the area yourself, you may have trouble with the slang and the charming but confusing accent. Most people in Sheffield, which is student-heavy, date online.
Dating sites and mobile apps are a great way to meet your very Yorkshire lad, and get to know him before you have to decipher what he’s saying face to face! You’ll also be able to meet men who live a little way out of the city, and in other cities nearby like Leeds. Best to maximise your chance of finding Mr Right, isn’t it?Meet men

You never know, the perfect woman might be halfway up a hill in the Peak District National Park, or living in a flat in Leeds!
