Online Dating for Walkers and Ramblers in the UK


Are you a keen walker or rambler who would like to spend more time with someone who also enjoys your favourite activity? There is nothing better than walking hand in hand, admiring the views together, whether as a couple or as part of a group of friends.

Traditionally dating and making new friends is carried out at parties and in pubs, but these activities don't necessarily attract many ramblers and walkers keen on the outdoors.  Online dating allows keen walkers and ramblers to find other walking friends and partners in a safe and self-selecting environment. For a quick guided tour of what the Outdoor Duo online walking club has to offer, see our Home page.

Find a walking or hiking partner

Outdoor Duo can act as a walking club for those who want to meet up in a group. See our Invitations page for events where you can meet other singles as part of a relaxed group where newcomers are always very welcome.  Whether you are into gentle walking or more strenuous hillwalking and mountaineering, there are walking events to meet every taste.

Walking Dating: take a walk to get to know someone better

If your passion is walking then why not suggest a walk for the first date.  A ramble in your local area, or a meet up in one of the UKs many exciting outdoor destinations, would be a good start to a new relationship and take away much of the nervousness of a traditional pub or restaurant date.  With OutdoorDuo you know everyone is "into" the outdoors, and looking for that someone to share their rambling with. When the conversation gets a little stuck then there will be plenty to talk about around you as you walk and ramble through the landscape.

Online Dating Works as Research Shows

Online dating works, and recent research backs this up. A new study of online dating site members has found that when couples who had built up a significant relationship by e-mailing or chatting online met for the first time, 94 per cent went on to see each other again.

Make new walking or hiking friends

OutdoorDuo works as both a walking club where you can meet single friends or a traditional dating site where you can meet walking dates. You can browse the Invitations pages for a flavour of the walking meets that happen almost every weekend, and the Pictures pages to see what Members get up to. It's free to register. To receive safe and secure messages you will need to Log in. Membership costs just £4.99 per month and opens up a network of invaluable contacts.

Hiking, Walking or Rambling?

Are these three variations of the same, or different activities? Or are we just becoming more Americanised? The Oxford Dictionary defines rambling as, "the activity of walking in the countryside for pleasure" which rather intriguingly suggests that walking is not always associated with enjoyment! Hiking is defined as, "a long walk or walking tour" which definitely has the ring of sodden boots, sore feet and a large drink in a warm pub associated with it. So we might conclude that hiking is the most strenuous way to make new friends, walking is the middle ground, and rambling is the least exhausting. To avoid confusion OutdoorDuo uses one category, walking.  Additional categories exist however for mountaineering, scrambling and climbing as these go beyond normal hillwalking. You can use the advanced search to find new friends, partners or potential dates who share your level of interest in either walking, mountaineering or various other outdoor pursuits.
