Where Canadian Singles Have the Most Success

If you are a Canadian single who wants to try online dating for the first time, or if you have tried several dating sites before without any luck, Zoosk wants to help you in your search. Zoosk is a matchmaking site that has helped millions of singles find online chat buddies, friendship, hookups and long-term love. Users are greeted by a white and teal color scheme and a few screenshots that show a glimpse of Zoosk in action. Zoosk has unique matchmaking technology that will pair you with the Canadian singles that you are most compatible with. Have you been trying to meet someone new? Let Zoosk lead the way.

How It Works

To join a large community of Canadian singles, you will be required to make an online dating profile. Sharing information will help other users learn more about you. Begin this process by answering questions about your body type, highest education level, height, ethnicity and whether you have children or not.

You will also have the opportunity to write a personal story about yourself. Keep it light and fun. Perhaps share a few personality traits, a funny story or a particular quirk you have. You can also share the specifics of your ideal match as well as a description of your ideal date. Canadians aren’t going to have the same experiences as Americans, so this is a great opportunity to highlight some unique features about your personality.

The next section will be a helpful tutorial showing you the proper steps to search through profiles. You will also be guided on how to send a personal message to any one that you want to meet. It’s a great tool if you want to reach out and ask a guy or girl if they’d like to grab a double-double or check out one of your favorite poutine restaurants.

Now that you have shared this valuable information, you can search for your perfect Canadian match. Zoosk has a few search features that allow you to control your dating experience. You can do a quick search by setting the location, age range and distance that you want to search. Your other option is to do an advance search by selecting certain details such as ethnicity, body type, education level, children and religion.

When you see someone that you want to contact, you can add them to your Favorites list and send a flirtatious wink their way. Check out if the user is verified, which helps to lend credibility to their profile. Zoosk allows users to verify their account through photos, a phone number, Twitter or Facebook.

A great way to view many Canadian singles that might be the man or woman of your dreams is with the Carousel feature. This game shows you photos of users that match your criteria and you select whether you want to date them or not. Carousel will also show mutual matches as well as users that expressed interest in you.

In addition to those features, there is SmartPick which displays a daily match. With a premium membership, you and a user can chat immediately if both of you agree it’s a good match. As you navigate the various features, Zoosk learns more about your personal dating preferences and uses that unique information to provide you with the best SmartPick matches. The more that you use Zoosk, the more accurate SmartPick matches become.

I met an amazing guy in a week and a half!

I joined Zoosk on a whim and ended up meeting the man of my dreams. He was geographically undesirable (he found me), but we clicked on all cylinders (email / phone) and pursued the connection. We are now living together and planning our future together. Needless to say, I am still shocked, but oh, so happy and content. Thank you Zoosk!!!

i really like zoosk. there are some things that are limited on the site but i am able to put in my profile what kind of man im looking for: personality, bodytype, height. smoking yes or no. drinking yes or no. i get constant views, many times you can tell which guys are more interested than others based on this only. in my case, i was limited in my finances and couldnt purchase a subscription for a few weeks. i could still see who had viewed me. another thing that i like about zoosk is they have an "insights" area where you can see where theyve compiled all the info of who you like("view")and who likes you("viewed"). who youre attracted to and whos attracted to you. theres also a compatibility rating at the bottom of some profiles. this is the site in subscribing to.

I am in my 60's and female and they really have the best single men out of all the sites...I have tried.

Submitted by Sharon Pierce Capp

I was on this site about two years ago. In February of 2013 I met someone. We were engaged after three weeks and happily married in a church wedding in July of 2013. We just recently celebrated our first anniversary. I might also mention that we are 69 and 71 years old. I have been on many dating sites off an on over a 6 year period and consider Zoosk the very best one.
