It boasts some major towns and cities such as Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield, Wakefield and Hull, along with York which is the historic county town and administrative centre plus major towns in Huddersfield, Halifax, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster.
Some aspects of the region are also quite rural, with a much lower density of population and these rural communities have been the heartland for personal introductions over the years, as sometimes in finding partners, that rural nature can be a disadvantage and make things more difficult than normal.
So both geographically and in terms of dating opportunities the Yorkshire and Humber region is very much a mixed bag. So please do choose your company or agency carefully.
Our recommendations would be as follows: Yorkshire and Humber has a strong singles scene in the towns and cities, you will find Speed Dating, Dinner Parties, Singles Clubs and other dating events Online Dating will be a strong option within the region but remember there has been a lot of criticism in the recent past, with exposure on the TV and in the press.
If you have become nervous about online dating, you are new to dating after a long marriage or enduring relationship over many years, you may prefer to use a professional personal introductions company. Their strength is that potential partners have been more carefully ID checked and interviewed prior to being able to join as a member. In more rural areas look for a well established agency Look for an agency with as large a database of people as possible to give yourself the widest possible choice of partners Be opened minded about meeting people from out of your area Take into account age groups if possible and look for an agency that specialises in your age group.
