If you’re navigating the Canadian dating scene, we’ve got you covered! We know the market can be muddy waters, and if you’re using ‘The Apps‘, it can be a daunting mission. Are you over dating apps, or have you just not tried the right one?

Check out these popular dating apps that have captured the hearts of Canadians from coast to coast. Whether you’re looking for casual flings or meaningful connections, these apps offer unique features and experiences to cater to your dating preferences.

1. Tinder

Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps out right now, I feel like we can all agree. It’s known for its user-friendly matchmaking system. Browse through profiles and swipe right to like someone — or left to pass.

It’s perfect for both casual connections and those looking for serious relationships, and there have been some serious success stories coming from the Tinder swipe. While it may get its reputation, don’t sleep on an app meet-cute.

2. Bumble

Bumble is a place where women initiate conversations — after matching with someone. This app encourages both respectful and kind interactions. It’s a great option for those seeking meaningful connections!

Not to mention, the Bumble brand has also expanded to other apps like Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz — if you’re looking to create professional and friendship-based connections, alternatively.

3. Hinge

Hinge sets itself apart by wanting to focus on meaningful connections! People can build their profiles with engaging prompts and questions — which makes it a whole lot easier to start conversations based on shared interests! The app is all about authentic relationships and thoughtful interactions.

Their slogan is actually “the dating app designed to be deleted,” in hopes of those finding their forever someone and getting to ditch the dating apps for good!

4. Raya

You may have heard of the ever-so-exclusive “Raya” dating app. This app is all about its high-profile user base, which includes celebrities, artists, and influencers. To get in, you’ll need to complete a thorough application process.

Raya is designed as a private and elite dating experience.

5. fruitz_app

The fruitz_app focuses on “slow dating” in the “Gen Z” world. It has a daily limit to the number of matches you can make and encourages users to invest more time in getting to know each other, before moving forward. This is a great app for those that are looking to take things slow and find quality matches.

Their official Instagram account is pretty good at pointing out red flags to look for on a date too.

6. Nudge

Nudge encourages both personal growth and development, in dating — hence, the name. It makes users set goals, in hopes of couples supporting one another to achieve them. It’s a great choice for those looking for self-improvement!

7. Filteroff

Get ready to show your faces with this video-first dating app! Filteroff organizes many virtual speed dating events, that include video calls. Its goal is to help people realize if they have chemistry with someone or not, quickly.

If you prefer face-to-face interactions, this is the app for you!

8. Badoo

Badoo is a versatile dating app with a massive global user base, including a significant presence in Canada! It offers video calls and allows you to connect with local nearby users. It’s a great all-around option for whatever type of connection you are looking for. 

Their official Instagram account also has some amazing tips on how to build a profile, without all the cringe-worthy factors.

9. Plenty of Fish (POF)

Plenty of Fish, commonly known as POF, has been around for YEARS and remains popular for its free features. When signing up, you’ll have to fill out an extensive questionnaire, which will allow you to find more compatible profiles.

This is a great way to find a compatible fish in this huge sea. 

10. eHarmony

eHarmony is all about a compatibility-focused approach to matchmaking. It also uses a comprehensive questionnaire to connect users. Some of the factors that the questionnaire will take in to find your perfect match includes values and beliefs!
