While you may assume they are all the same, that’s not exactly the case. Below, we will be discussing some of the top things that you ought to look for when searching for the right website.

Our Tips For How You Can Find The Top Dating Websites in Canada:

1. Free or Paid

One of the main factors that you should be considering when you are looking to find the best website would be the price of it. For those who are willing and able to pay for an online dating site, they might find the paid options better. After all, if you are willing to pay for a dating site, you may take it much more seriously than someone who doesn’t. That being said, there are plenty of free dating sites available that can provide just as good of an experience and a pool of people to choose from as a paid version.

2. Features

Another major thing that you should be looking at when you are trying to figure out which dating website to choose from would be the features that are included with all of them. You want to find the website that is going to give you all of the features that you could find yourself using. For instance, some websites may offer better chat features. Whereas, some websites may have better features that can help you filter out results. Other websites may have good algorithms to find better matches.

3. Ease Of Use

Another thing that you should be considering when you are trying to weigh the different sites against each other would be the usability of the site. The usability that the site offers is one of the most important things that you need to factor into your decision because it will ultimately impact how much you use it. No one is going to want to use a site that is hard to navigate and one that doesn’t load quickly or one that is difficult to use for other reasons. The site should be extremely easy to use and intuitive to provide a good experience for everyone. Not only will it limit your own usability, but it will discourage others from using it, as well. This could limit the potential matches that you are able to find.

4. Use-Case

Another thing that you should be considering when you are shopping around for the right website to use for your online dating would be whether or not it meets your respective use-case. A lot of people who are going to be online dating will be doing so for their own reasons. Some people may be shy and they don’t want to approach people in real life. Whereas, some may be using it because they want to find people outside of their busy work life. Some may be using it as a means to filter through people with similar interests or beliefs. Regardless of why you are looking to use online dating, you want to be certain that you are choosing the right dating site that is going to meet your specific use-case. This will ensure that you are able to get the most out of using the dating site to find someone who matches you. Make sure there are a lot of Canadians in your area using the site if you want to find a local match.

5. Personality

You want to factor in your own personality when you are trying to find the right site. You want to look at how you interact with people and how the site is going to allow you to do so. This will ensure that you are able to find the site that will make it much easier for you to be yourself when you are talking to and/or interacting with people on it.

6. App

Another thing that you may be concerned with is whether or not the dating site has an app that you are going to be able to use. An app can make the experience on a mobile device that much better. Because of this, you may want to limit the options based on the websites that have a corresponding app that you will be able to use. An app can make the site much more usable and it can give you the features that you need in order to get the most out of your subscription whether free or paid. Some apps deliver better experiences than others. Therefore, you should consider your mobile operating system, and the reviews the app is getting when choosing. Look for apps that have a large audience of users in Canada. Check out this list of the top dating apps for Canadians.

Overall, there are a lot of different things that you are going to want to look for when you are trying to find the right dating site to choose from. By using the criteria above, you should be able to find a lot of good dating sites that you can consider. You want to find the one that is well suited to offering you the best possible experience. You want to find a dating site that will deliver the kind of experience you are looking for and the type of candidates that you want to meet. Some dating sites may be better targeted for those looking for marriage candidates. Whereas, some dating sites may be actively targeting those who are looking for casual relationships. Figure out whether or not you are willing to pay for a subscription and look for the site that offers the features that you could see yourself using. By doing this, you should be able to narrow down the options to find the right one.

Healthy Versus Toxic Love

If you were in a toxic relationship, would you recognize it? Are you the type who can come up with a million excuses for your love interest to behave badly?

Try as I might to raise my teenage boys to recognize toxic love from the start, I can see episodes where they give in and think with their heart instead of making healthy decisions.

Early in my dating career, I established my own set of rules. Rules that included issues that were important to me and those I could not settle for less on.

As an example – I am very big on being prompt. I hate tardiness of any kid and during my dating career – if my date showed up more than 15 minutes late, I didn’t go. I found it to be rude and inconsiderate.

There’s absolutely no excuse for being tardy these days, especially when everyone has cell phones or know someone who does.

I stumbled on this chart that compares Healthy Love and Toxic Love – take a look, compare the sides and see if you see yourself in any of the classic signs.

Artistic Types Have Way More Sex

After surveying 425 men and womenDaniel Nettle of Newcastle University found a strong link between the profession of a person and the number of sexual partners they have had.

According to this study, doctors, lawyers, and other business-y types have had sex with fewer partners than people in creative fields, namely with as few as three people on average. People in more creative careers such as writing, music, or the arts have shagged anywhere from four to ten and even more.

The reason for this difference, says Nettle, is a bit of a no-brainer: “Creative types tend to act on more sexual impulses and opportunities, often purely for experience’s sake, than the average person would,” he explains. Of course, that doesn’t mean that every person who dabbles in watercolors, is writing a novel, or works in advertising can be found out bed-hopping. The actual number will vary from individual to individual.

I have to admit, it makes sense.  In all the men I’ve ever dated, I do have to say those who were more “artsy” were obviously more sexual then the others and that was obvious with the men remaining fully dressed.

The Single Biggest Killer of Relationships

“What many people don’t realise is that, should their soulmate change into the perfect ideal required, they both will be seeking different partners! Think about it carefully. People come together because they are attracted to each other .. AS THEY ARE, not what they hope to be. Change one person to something else and s/he will then be looking for a new partner to match the new characteristics they have acquired.” — Elaine Sihera, The Single Biggest Killer of Relationships

The article reports on the cause of bringing relationships to an end. Unmanaged expectations. Couples having set too high an expectation on each other that would often end up in breaking the bonds that initially brought them together. I wish it also shared useful steps on how to deal couples should deal with this together when they find themselves in this situation.

Personally, I believe that when two people meet and date, the attraction lies on their present state. Sure, there will be romanticized notions and such but the fact remains that one is attracted to the other, as the article states, as they are. But, admittedly, change being the only constant thing, when you do get on with life with them, events will happen. Growth. We can only hope that we can manage the expectations of each other, grow together individually AND as a couple, so that adapting to such changes will not be difficult.

What about you guys? What do you think of it? Do you agree that this is the single biggest killer of relationships? How do you deal with it?
