Plano, Texas, part of the sprawling Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, is home to more than 225,000 people. Thanks to its distinction as a haven for corporate headquarters, Legacy Drive on the northwest side of Plano is full of corporate campuses that are themselves havens for single Plano professionals.

Plano's proximity to Dallas and Forth Worth does not mean, however, that the community does not have plentiful local offerings. Collin Creek Mall is one of the largest in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and in addition to boutique stores offers five department stores. If you'd like to start out your Plano dating life in a safe and varied environment, a fun trip to the mall may be a good place for a first, "getting to know you" outing.
For a more traditional first date in Plano, personal tastes in dining may dictate the choice of venue. The city has a stunning variety of ethnic eateries from Chinese to Greek, Indian, Italian, Japanese and the Texas staple, Mexican. Sandwich shops, coffee houses, and intimate tea rooms add to this cornucopia of food and choices of atmosphere.
There are four local multiplex theaters and for sports enthusiasts, Plano is in easy driving distance of Ameriquest Field in Arlington, home of the Texas Rangers baseball team and the Dallas Cowboys football team's home stadium in Irving. (The Cowboys have a new stadium under construction in Arlington adjacent to the Ameriquest Field formerly known as simply The Ballpark. When it is finished, the two venues will form the largest sports complex in the Metroplex.)
In Plano, personal interaction is all about variety. Intimate dinners are easy to arrange in the literally hundreds of restaurants located in Plano proper and in the broader Metroplex.

As residents of a thriving, cosmopolitan urban area, young Plano professionals have all the benefits of the best that city life can offer and all the potential they need to meet one another and perhaps to forge a special relationship.
