Seattle mag's guide to dating at any age as well of a wealth of ways for a twosome to turn up the heat
Maybe it’s because we’re swaddled in Gore-Tex much of the year, or maybe it’s our inherent, beloved nerdiness (in the high-tech, literature, eco, music or you-name-it field)—for whatever reason, Seattle is not known as a sexy city. Locals attempting to play the dating game are well aware of the woes intrinsic to living here (see: the famed Seattle “ice” and our notorious penchant for passive-aggressive problem solving), and those already coupled up often struggle for ways to escape the Netflix noose. But never fear! Not only have we pulled together a guide to Seattle dating at any age, we’ve also compiled a wealth of ways for established twosomes to tie one on. And as a corrective for our unsexy rep, we’ve included a timeline of local history that proves—for better or worse—we’ve always had a lot going on underneath all that rain gear.
