How to make my dating profile in Barnsley

To make your Match profile, there are only a few essentials you need to get down to kickstart your Barnsley dating site experience today – find something special and register with Match today! Here’s some top tips to get you all set:

  • Tell us about you: To help you find someone who really suits you, we need to know a little about you! Whether it’s adding an emoji to your profile that’s just so you or making sure you fill out all the questions as honestly as possible – remember the more you tell us, the more we can help you.
  • “So, what’re you into?” Interests, hobbies and what you do in your spare time is pivotal information. You can filter people for their interests, so adding yours in helps your profile to become visible to people searching for like minded singles.
  • Let everyone see your face: Take some pictures and show your best side. Profiles without pictures are never a good sign, adding in some pictures (not just selfies) can show people who they’re talking to and make them feel safe.
  • Add in your location: If you’re looking to date in Barnsley, you should let people know that’s where you are! Otherwise you risk talking to people far away from you and long distance is doable, but difficult – start talking to Barnsley singles today and turn on those geolocation services.

10 date ideas in and around Barnsley

  • Botanical Gardens

Take a stroll through the flora and get them fauna-ing over you (too cheesy?).

  • Yorkshire Wildlife Park

If you’re dating someone passionate about animal conservation and animal rehabilitation, Yorkshire Wildlife Park will be right up their alley. With over 400 animals and 70 different species, there’s always something new and exciting to see – and talk about later.

One of the most beautiful trails in the U.K. From walking trails to art installations, Rivelin really has it all and there’s no better way to enjoy it than with someone special.

  • Crucible Theatre

A world famous theatre right next to you – what could be more perfect for a first date? Take someone to this visually exquisite space and watch some incredible theatre.

  • Kelham Island Museum

Take a journey through history and spend the hours wandering around Kelham Island Museum together. Even though it’s a little journey away from Barnsley, it’s a great way to spend a lazy Saturday when all the other museums are overcrowded.

  • Snozone

Is skiing a good enough excuse to hold onto someone’s hand? Of course it is! Sail down the (fake) slopes and into each other’s arms at Snozone.

  • Speedwell Cavern

Learn a little bit about lead mines and take a guided boat tour through this eighteenth-century shaft. Taking the time to get some space with someone special is a bonding experience like no other – for the imaginative romantic, you can pretend you’re in a tunnel of love.

  • Old No. 7

Calling all beer lovers! The Old No. 7 is an award-winning craft beer pub with a great reputation. Not only does it have an extensive beer menu to work your way through (remember to stay safe when it comes to sharing drinks with someone new!), but they also boast live music nights and seasonal ale festivals.

  • Lamproom Theatre

The Lamproom is home to top-notch comedy and theatre productions, so you don’t have to go far from home to see a show! Taking someone to the theatre is a great way to elevate the simple cinema date, but it’s always good to ask what they might want to see! There’s nothing worse than going to a comedy when one person is laughing and the other is sitting straight-faced for the whole thing.

  • The Garrison

Watching live music is one of the best ways to connect with someone new – it doesn’t just provide excellent entertainment, but it allows you to establish common ground. If you’re not much of a talker, it takes the pressure off, if you’re prone to nervous chatter, it helps you reign it in.
