2 couples rooftop patioMinneapolis is a great place to be single. There are so many avenues to go through to meet people in this day and age. It has now been made so easy to put yourself out there and meet people. You just have to know where to look to take advantage of these opportunities.


Websites such as meetup.com have made it so easy to get hooked up with people who have the same interests as you. You can join groups on meetup.com that are of interest to you. Then you can talk with people that are in that group and attend the events to meet even more people. It is a great way to get involved in your community and possibly meet your future spouse. Meetup hosts so many different groups, the more you join, the more people you will meet.


Tinder is a fairly new application that you can buy on your phone. Tinder matches people based off their location. So you would only get matched with people in your area. They use your Facebook profile to gather information to make your Tinder profile and match you with people that they think would be a good match.

This application is a very efficient way to find a date quick. You can look through people in your area’s profiles and decide whether you are interested or not. If you are interested, you are able to send them a message to start a conversation to see if you have anything in common.

Tinder is mainly used by younger generations. It is essentially a very fast way to online date.  Of course, it does have the reputation that it’s more of a pick up site and not actually people who want a long term relationship.  I have heard differing experiences though.


Uptown is a great place to be if you are in your 20’s or 30’s. It has a very hip vibe and has lots of things to do that young people love. There are a lot of fun bars to go to, restaurants to visit, shopping to do, and comedy clubs to see.

Uptown also houses Lake Calhoun, which is one of Minneapolis’ premier lakes. You can go paddle boarding, canoeing, fishing, kayaking, paddle boating, or sailing on Lake Calhoun. There are so many things to do and places to see in Uptown, you will never be bored.


The North Loop area and West End is considered a place that houses mostly people in their 30’s and 40’s.  North Loop is one of the older neighborhoods in the city. It used to be a primarily industrial area. Today, a lot of those old warehouses are being turned into beautiful lofts, condo’s, and apartments. The North Loop also has great shopping and lots of delicious restaurants to try.

West End is a booming district of Minneapolis. There are many new shopping complexes that have added many desired stores in the past few years. West End also houses lots of great restaurants that would be a great way to spend a date.
