How’s it going singles in Virginia Beach?!
Datermeister knows a thing or two about being single. You return home from work, stick on a TV dinner, crack open a cold one and spend the evening watching Netflix by yourself …
Worse still, there’s no one to spoon when you go to bed and no one to share your weekend with.
And the beach is such a lonely place when everyone else is all coupled up.
It totally sucks!
But it’s okay because Datermeister is here with our bumper guide to the 7 best places to meet singles in Virginia Beach.
We’re going to take a look at the best places to go and the things you need to do to meet your next partner.
All we need from you is effort and a willingness to do what it takes to put yourself out there, and we’ll take care of the rest.
Excited?! Let’s go!
1. Best nightclubs for Virginia Beach singles
Picture it: it’s Friday night. Work is over for the week. The temperatures are still high, though, because the sexy Virginia Beach singles are hitting the clubs in search of a good time.
If you need to feel someone’s body pressed against yours to see if there’s chemistry, you need to hit the club scene.
Nightclubs are great places to meet extroverts who want a good time.
It’s easy, too. Grab a friend, have some cocktails and take to the dance floor with confidence.
Have fun, be positive and pretty soon the right person (or people) will gravitate towards you.
And if it doesn’t work the first time, simply try again the next weekend!
Keep all your conversation light, flirt, and when the time is right, don’t be afraid to go in for a kiss.
Then, before the night is over, get their number.
Here are the two best nightclubs in Virginia Beach.
Omega Bar (928 Diamond Springs Rd, Virginia Beach, VA 23455): This lively place is always ready for a party at the weekend. Only the hottest people in town seem to come here, and it comes with outdoor seating for when you want to have a chat with that sexy someone you met on the dance floor.
Club Empire (475 S Lynnhaven Rd, Virginia Beach, VA 23452): The atmosphere in here is fab, and if you love Spanish music you’re going to love Club Empire. Everyone is so friendly, from the bar staff to the bouncers – to the singles. Oh-la-la!
2. Best Bars in Virginia Beach for singles?
Not a huge fan of clubs? No problem, but what’s really important is that you don’t stray too far from the nightlife as this is where the Virginia Beach singles scene is alive and kicking.
Bars are cool places to meet singles in Virginia Beach because you can just take a friend and start a chat with anyone.
The main thing is that you’re confident, smiley and that you don’t rudely interrupt someone’s conversation.
A simple ‘mind if we sit here?’ can be enough to get you started. Otherwise, if you repeatedly catch someone’s eye and they keep smiling at you, you should totally go over there and introduce yourself.
When you do start a conversation, be super fun and flirty.
Here are the 2 best Virginia Beach singles bars:
Calypso Bar and Grill (1101 Atlantic Ave, Virginia Beach, VA 23451): With its stunning ocean views and outdoor patio, this joint has it all. Wouldn’t it be mind blowing to chat to someone new and feel chills as you gaze at the ocean together? It sounds like a movie! And it can happen to you.
FireBrew Bar and Grill (1253 Nimmo Pkwy #117, Virginia Beach, VA 23456): Perfect for Virginia Beach singles over 40, this cosy little place has a super relaxed atmosphere. It’s warm and inviting, and it never gets too loud which makes it easy to meet new people. It also comes with self service wine stations. Neat.
3. Concerts or Stand-up Comedy Shows Are Especially Some of the Best Places to Meet Singles in Virginia Beach
Love live music? Go to concerts often? 😀
Never met anyone at a concert? 🙁
The thing is, Virginia Beach singles love live music just as much as you do. And contrary to what you might believe, they don’t go to concerts just for the music.
Nope, they also go there to meet someone new.
The music is fab – but meeting their next partner is a delightful bonus!
The next time you go to a concert, open your eyes to who is around you. Don’t be afraid to dance with someone who’s clearly into you. Introduce yourself, get close to them and then ask if they’d like a drink at the bar.
Comedy shows are great places to meet new people, too. You can’t have a dance, of course, but as long as you’re smiling and having a good time with your pals, you literally never know who might gravitate towards you.
It’s all about being open to meeting someone. It’s ALL about being willing to smile at strangers and saying anything to get a conversation started.
And is it just us or do people look cuter when they’re laughing? If first impressions are everything, you can’t go wrong at a comedy show.
Here is the best comedy club in Virginia Beach:
Funny Bone (217 Central Park Ave, Virginia Beach, VA 23462): This joint is actually the only comedy club in Virginia Beach. Of course, this gives it one distinct advantage – it’s always packed. This means more singles to choose from! It’s also located in one of the best Virginia Beach neighbourhoods for singles.
4. Best places to meet singles in Virginia Beach online? (Tip: forget Tinder)
‘Yeah, I gave online dating a go but it just didn’t work.’
Thing is, online dating can be less of a lottery if you know what you’re doing.
For one thing, avoid Tinder. It’s for people who are looking for validation – ever noticed how people go missing when you ask if they want to meet up?
Secondly, work on your profile. Ask a friend to pick your best photos and make your bio as positive as you can. Focus on your passions and values and talk about what you’re looking for.
Make yourself appear fun and outgoing – just what Virginia Beach singles are looking for!
Here are the 2 best dating sites you need to check out:
Match.com: It’s no surprise that Match is one of the most popular dating sites in America. It’s free to register and home to a stack of profiles for you to browse.
EliteSingles: If you’re career oriented and need someone who’s on your intellectual level, you need to sign up to EliteSingles. This is where the doctors and lawyers are at. Just make sure your opening line is good!
And if you’re looking for something more niche – such as Christian singles in Virginia Beach or Catholic singles in Virginia Beach – both these sites let you easily refine your search.
5. Gym, yoga, meditation – any fitness activities are great places to meet Virginia Beach Singles
Want to meet someone who’s as fit and healthy as you? It’s time to meet someone at the gym.
In fact, you can meet people at yoga and meditation classes, too.
‘But Datermeister, that’s just wrong! No one wants to be hit on when they’re breaking a sweat or meditating!’
True, but you’re not going to these places with the sole purpose of hitting on someone.
Instead, look at it like this. Anyone who goes to a gym or a yoga class is a regular. This means that, if you become a regular too, you’ll soon be able to build rapport with people.
After a couple of weeks or so, you can invite someone out for a drink.
Just make sure that when you chat to people you like, try to be flirty. Make them aware that you like them, otherwise you might get friend zoned.
6. Singles events in Virginia Beach? Plus other networking events:
There are all kinds of Virginia Beach singles meetup events going on.
Match.com regularly host their own and you can download the meetup.com app to see what else is going on.
And if you’re looking to meet Christian singles in Virginia Beach, you can check your local church to see if they’re organising any social nights.
Speed dating is a fun Virginia Beach singles activity you should try, too.
Don’t stop there – normal networking events might not help you meet your soulmate there and then, but they’ll help you expand your social circle. And because so many couples still meet through friends, a wide social circle is a must.
7. Go to courses or meetups to learn new skills (while meeting like minded people)
Do you love to learn new skills? Bet you’re thinking you’ll have no time to learn a new skill now that you’ve got so many places to go!
So how about you combine learning a new skill with meeting someone new? Whether you want to learn how to paint, cook or market a business, simply join a class and see if you can’t study alongside hot singles in Virginia Beach!
Now that you know where to go and what to do, there’s no excuse for not hitting the Virginia Beach singles scene.
Virginia Beach singles are out there – they’ve always been out there – but you need to up your efforts if you want to meet them.
Quit staying in, quit Tinder, call a friend and tell them ‘we’ve got work to do.’
And get to it!
