The technological advancement of the 21st century has penetrated most aspects of living in Canada and in fact the world. Even concepts like love and dating considered impossible to happen without physical space have not been left out. It is now easy to find dates regardless of the location through dating apps.
People have more access to dating apps these days, but not everyone offers the best of services. In this article, I will be taking you through the best seven available in Canada.
Match is one of the pioneer dating websites.
Launched in 1995, it has grown to have an audience in about 24 countries and is available in twelve languages.
The app is available for download on mobile devices once you sign up via the website. It works well on iPhone, Android, and blackberry devices.
One feature that makes Match exciting is that new members can access a free account to overview the app. However, only paid members to have access to the full range of services provided.
Once you have an account, you can set up your profile, conduct searches, and directly communicate with anyone.

Users can access most of OkCupid’s features for free. That is one of the things that distinguishes OkCupid. It also offers an in-depth profile set up which cuts time spent filtering searches. The process of setting up an account takes you through the usual routes like your age, location, gender, etc.

eHarmony was launched in 2000. With a large membership base, few fake profiles, and a robust personality-compatibility matching system, eHarmony is well suited for a serious and long-term relationship.
The personality-compatibility testing is extensive. It takes about 20 minutes to take. It consisted of about 300 questions when the app launched but has been reviewed to about 70. You have to be as sincere as possible because the system uses the result to match you with similar profiles. This may not be very pleasant, but it makes sense knowing the profiles of singles there are as honest as possible.

Once you see a picture, the app gives you options to swipe right or left. Swiping left means you do not like the person, while swiping to the right indicates your interest in the person, after which you will be matched and can initiate a conversation between each other.
