OKCupid OKCupid, in many Toronto circles, is known as the site to tap if you're looking for someone to accompany you to Trinity Bellwoods Park, followed by brunch at the Drake with plenty of dry nonchalance.Members create quizzes to find their perfect matches, with questions like "How distressed is too distressed, when it comes to jeans?" and "I'm a man who wears women's sweaters to be fashionable; hot or not? E Harmony Who can resist those feel good E Harmony commercials with silver-haired Neil Clark Warren telling you lifelong happiness is just a click away?
Toronto dating websites have always had me fascinated.Maybe its my friends' horror stories that have rendered me captive, or else those tween evenings wasted watching play-by-plays from the "Matchmaker Limo." There's just something about an online supermarket of lovin' opportunity that reinforces the greatness that is the Internet (that and puppy videos).While I've never personally given it a gander, I can see my future 25-year-old single self opting to trade in the bar tab for a login password.

True to its name, there are plenty of profiles for Toronto area men looking for women, women looking for men, or same-sex meetups (600+ in any direction).Lavalife Lavalife became infinitely more interesting when its co-founder, Bruce Croxton, joined Dragons Den this past September (except to Brett Wilson devotees).
