COMMUNICATION FEATURES

In online dating, communication is key, which is why many dating sites such as Match.com offer several communication options from virtual "winks" to online 'ice breakers". You may also want to consider Lavalife, which is one of the few sites that offers video communication. Some dating sites, such as Chemistry.com and eHarmony, only offer compatibility matching. You can only communicate with others if you were introduced by a site's matchmaking systems. Services such as these may be ideal for you if you prefer to remain anonymous. more

SPECIAL FEATURES

While you can do without most of the extra features they offer, some dating sites have features that really stand out and should be taken into consideration when you decide on a service. Match.com, for example, offers mobile dating where you can login securely from your cell phone. Chemistry.com offers free help with creating your profile to offer the most relevant matches possible. eHarmony offers a free personality assessment that can help you better understand yourself and pinpoint exactly what you're looking for in a match. more

MEMBERSHIP BASE

Aside from having an impressive list of features, the ideal dating site should have a large pool of singles potential matches for you. While some sites may cater specifically to Canadian singles, other sites which may not have been created specifically for Canadians can often provide a greater chance of meeting the prefect match due to their large membership bases.more

SEARCH OPTIONS AND MATCHING ALGORITHMS

Compatibility matching services offered by sites like Chemistry.com and eHarmony have successfully suggested thousands of long-term matches based on personality, "Dimensions of Compatibility" and other specific qualities. Other sites such as Match.com, offer powerful search features that enable you to find a match based on the traits that matter most to you. If you're not sure which type of dating site will best suit your needs, you can also try a site that offers both such as PerfectMatch, although it may not have as a large a pool of potential Canadian matches. more

NICHE DATING CATEGORIES

If you are set on meeting singles with a particular nationality, interest or religion, there are sites that specifically target singles based on these qualities, such as SingleParentMeet.com and JDate. These types of sites have much more homogenous membership base which is helpful if you are set on only meeting singles that classify themselves based on these factors. You may be surprised however, to learn that often, the larger mainstream dating sites have more singles belonging to a specific group than even dating sites that cater exclusively to that niche. more

PRIVACY AND SECURITY

While some singles prefer to express themselves openly and honestly online, others prefer to keep their identity private. For this reason, most online dating sites offer a variety of privacy and security options. If you prefer privacy, you should be aware that in some cases, like on PerfectMatch, if you hide your profile you cannot receive match suggestions. Your privacy settings can be easily adjusted in the profile section of most online dating sites. more

CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Chances are you will never need to actually get in touch with your dating site, but it's still reassuring to know that a site offers helpful customer support. With the exception of Chemistry.com and Match.com, which offer customer service phone numbers directly on their Contact Us pages, most online dating sites offer only FAQ pages and email support. We've tested the top Canadian dating sites and ranked the quality of their customer support. more
