Your choice dating

Online dating has overcome a lot of stigma in the past few years and is rapidly becoming the method of choice for Canadian singles seeking a partner.

But how does one choose between free dating sites and those that offer more?

The swipe-right-for-sex mechanism almost seems too easy, and as a result these apps still have a rep for promoting hookup culture over real relationships.

Even the older crowd is getting into it: In 2015, 12 percent of adults aged 55 to 64 used online dating sites, compared with just 6 percent in 2013.

As much as personally reject the idea of using dating apps, I respect others who use them and I accept that dating apps are not going anywhere any time soon.

I have to admit that I do know several people who have said that dating apps have worked successfully for them, so I do understand the desire to use them.

I've never quite jumped on the bandwagon of dating apps — I tried to download one once as an experiment, but I just couldn't get my fingers to tap the button.
