If you’re single and looking for love, the thing most often on your mind is probably dating. Sligo has a reputation for being a place of ‘mad craic’, somewhere where you can bump into a stranger on a night out and make them your new best friend. But we can be a difficult county to meet new people in too. Dating in Sligo often means being stuck with the same people you’ve always known. Whether in your lifelong friend group, sports team or work buddies, it’s hard to break out of the people you already know and find a guy or girl who’ll last.

Even if you find someone, it can be hard getting up the nerve to approach them. If they’re a complete stranger, it can be downright scary. What do you say? How do you look? When do you buy them a drink? How do you know if they even want to talk? There are so many potential pitfalls involved in dating. Sligo doesn’t make it easy to find the right person and make just the right impression.

But we can help.
