Here’s why autumn is the best season for dating in Vancouver



Cuffing season is a real thing.

The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and holiday lights are just beginning to twinkle. Is this the backdrop of some cheesy romantic comedy filmed in Vancouver? Well, probably, but it’s also the setting for the most romantic time of year.

Yes, it’s officially cuffing season, the time of year when singles begin to settle down and enjoy all the loveliness of committed relationships. Maybe it’s the cold weather that makes us seek out a reliable cuddling partner or maybe autumn really is the best season for dating.

We think the latter, here’s why.

There date options are way better

Dinner and a movie is a classic, but what about orchards, pumpkin patches, haunted houses or holiday light displays!? First dates that elicit positive emotional reactions and great conversations are the kick-off point to great relationships and autumn and winter are full of amazing first date options you simply can’t do the rest of the year.

People are actually looking for love

If summer is about seeing friends and having fun, autumn and winter are about finding that special someone. Makes sense, the weather practically necessitates hand holding well into the New Year.

This isn’t true for just Vancouver either. In fact, the team at The Inner Circle has stated that the Christmas and New Year break are actually one of the busiest times of the year for dating app activity around the world. People go home, spend time with their family, rest, relax, get a little bored, pull out their phones and start looking for love!

You actually have time to meet new people and try new things

If you’re lucky, summer is full of quick getaways and dream vacations. We’ve now settled back into regular life, but aren’t quite in the chaos that is the holiday season, giving singles plenty of time to date, meet new people, browse dating apps and enjoy the city with some great new company.

The whole city transforms into a romantic date destination

Vancouver’s collection of restaurants, bars, cafes and unique outings make it a great place to date year round, but in the autumn and winter months, every neighbourhood transforms into a moonlit, autumnal wonderland. If you’re looking to set the mood, just take a step outside. Let the city views, crisp air and moonlight take care of the rest.
