The Perth dating scene has been through some pretty changes in the past decade.
The mining boom has brought an influx of new residents into the city, with the heart of Perth doubling its population in the last 8 years.
What does this mean for Perth singles looking for love? The good news is that there's plenty of great singles out there - the bad news is that it's ironically hard to find them in the chaos of modern day life. Back in the day 'matchmaking' may have involved a friend setting you up on a blind date and hoping for the best.
Food and romance often go hand in hand, so why not set your meeting for one of Perth's many top restaurants?
The old home of the West Australia newspaper, Print Hall houses both a casual South-East Asian street food plaza, which is great for lunch dates, and a more up-market dining room with a wonderful degustation menu.
To really push the boat out, try Mosmans, an elegant restaurant known for its fresh Australian seafood, stunning views and a picturesque location right on the Swan River.
Luckily, Perth is packed with date ideas - good places to eat, places to drink and places to dance the night away.
Consider what would be interesting for your date and try to ensure that the venue is intimate but also relaxing.
A night at the opera sounds impressive, but would mean less time talking and getting to know one another.
