It may be little, but for singles, Fort Collins certainly is loud. This town in northern Colorado knows how to live it up, with over twenty craft breweries, excellent live music, gorgeous views thanks to the Horsetooth Reservoir and the Cache La Poudre River Canyon, and historic and beautiful Old Town. Plus with nearly 60% of the town being single, there’s never been a better time for dating.
Why dating in Fort Collins has its ups and downs
The upside of living in the mountains: gorgeous views, the opportunity to ski and snowboard, the excuse to make hot chocolate or mulled wine whenever you please. The downside: All that snow. But Fort Collins singles are in luck; in a town as small as this, getting to downtown is no trouble at all. Plus, there’s the aforementioned hot chocolate to look forward to.
Another reason why dating in Fort Collins can be challenging: it’s a college town, and if you’re older than college age, well, that significantly reduces your dating pool. Which is all the more reason to put yourself out there; after all, you just need to find one fish in the sea, not all of them.
How to meet people in Fort Collins
Luckily, FoCo residents are some of the friendliest people around (well, unless you’re a California transplant). Here are some of the best places to meet singles in Fort Collins:
- If you love the great outdoors, joining a hiking, kayaking, or rock-climbing group is a great way to meet other outdoorsy singles.
- FoCo runs on two wheels. Even if you don’t have your own bike, there are plenty available to rent. Or sign up to ride in the annual Tour de Fat and you might meet a fellow bike enthusiast!
Online Dating in Fort Collins with eharmony
Living in a small town – especially one as beautiful as Fort Collins – has its advantages, but a surfeit of people to date isn’t one of them. Which is why more and more singles in Fort Collins are turning to dating site and apps to find love.
A frequent complaint with online dating is that it’s superficial and shallow. With eharmony, though, that’s certainly not the case. The focus of eharmony is to help you build a lasting relationship with someone who shares your values and vision.
Various options to make contact successfully
With eharmony, you can get to know future partners at your pace and get to know them well. eharmony has a myriad of ways for members to communicate, from Smiles and Icebreakers to messaging and video dates, all with the goal of helping you find something deep and real.
Unsure where to start? A Smile is an easy way to arouse attention and start a conversation. Or go for an Icebreaker with its pre-prepared questions for a low-fuss, low-stress way to learn about potential partners.
Take things to the next step with text messaging. And if that’s not enough but an in-person date isn’t possible for whatever reason (you live in different states? you’re snowed in?), a video date is a perfect way to connect with any potential partners from the privacy of your own home.
Success stories show that it works
Talk about fate – Kelly and Jeremy were in different states, neither looking for a long-distance relationship. Kelly’s eharmony membership was a week away from expiring. Then Jeremy decided to take a chance and press the ‘What If’ button… and just like that their lives changed, because taking that chance led to messaging led to emailing led to phone calls led to Skyping led to Jeremy flying to Colorado a month in… and the rest was history.
Fun Fort Collins date ideas
Fort Collins might be small, but there’s still plenty to do here. Some of our favorite offbeat FoCo date locations:
- Pack a picnic lunch and head to Horsetooth Reservoir for a first date with some of the most beautiful views known to man (no, we’re not talking about your date.)
- If you and your date are adventurous eaters, head to the Food Truck Rally at City Park for great food, live music, and built-in talking points.
