As you know, the internet has significantly changed interpersonal relationships, so much so that a growing number of love stories begin online, particularly through dating sites and apps. It’s easy, because you know that the people you’ll find there are pretty much looking for the same thing as you are.
So, you’d like to give it a try? Break free from your daily routine and make new and exciting acquaintances – friends, soul mates, lovers? There are plenty of options…
Quebec Rencontres (French only) claims to be the largest dating site in the province with 2.5 million members including over 10,000 new entries a month. It’s free and you can take advantage of various services like a phone line, mobile app, Facebook page, etc.
A free dating site typically aims to build a very large pool of members in order to offer a high number of interesting profiles and maximize the chances of a successful date. Conversely, subscription-based dating sites are not necessarily the best since they may present fewer profiles.
Some dating sites are designed for specific individuals, such as fitness and sports enthusiasts (fitness-match.ca), rich men (sugar-daddy.ca) or even readers of Le Devoir newspaper (LeDevoir.Compagnie.com)! Let’s not forget adulterers looking for discreet encounters (the controversial Ashley Madison website, which was hacked in 2015 and had thousands of members extorted, is still active, by the way).
What’s more, various American and international websites have Canadian members. Match.com and eHarmony are just a couple of examples.
Note that most of these sites have their own app, but there are many more apps out there for those looking to meet new people. Tinder first comes to mind, of course, but consider Coffee Meets Bagel, Happn, Grindr and Brenda, the last two aimed at homosexual, bisexual and bi-curious men and women.
