The Desert City that’s an Oasis for Tucson singles

by eharmony Editorial Team - January 1, 2023

Nestled into five striking and spare mountain ranges in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, Tucson can feel almost mystical at certain times and a place of extremes at others. A place whose warm months attract all manner of snowbirds seeking healing and rejuvenation in the dry desert climate.

 The notion of these extremes can also be felt in Tucson dating culture. It can sometimes be difficult for Tucson singles to know where to start looking and how to build an actual connection. But it’s not always as hard as we tend to make it in our heads.

How welcoming is the Tucson dating scene?

Is Tucson good for singles? Well, there certainly are a lot of them. 62% of the city is single.1 That’s over 330,000 people.

So while Tucson singles may sometimes feel like opportunities out there are dry, particularly when the snowbirds and students make their seasonal departures, according to the numbers, you might just not be looking in the right places.

Different ways to meet singles in Tucson

Speaking of the right places, let’s look at some of the best locations to run into other Tucson singles:

  • Casa Film Bar A bar with movies constantly playing on the screens. This makes it easy to start a conversation, particularly if you’re both film lovers.
  • El Jefe Cat Lounge For cat owners. Try to spark up a conversation with someone whose cat is in the same area as yours and keep the conversation light.
  • Desert Diamond Casino – Casinos have a lively atmosphere on weekends and starting a conversation is as easy as joining someone’s table.
  • Pima County Library book clubs – Book clubs are naturally lively and engaging places for stimulating conversation and also good places to make friends in Tucson.
  • Creative Kind – these creative workshops are an opportunity to naturally interact with Tucson singles over course work, which can possibly lead to something more.
