The How to Date Guide: Toronto

Toronto Dating

Toronto is one of the biggest cities in Canada. There is a population of almost 3 million people. But Toronto is unlike many places because it boasts a different type of citizen. In Toronto, much like Los Angeles, everyone is aspiring to be something. Whether it’s the next radio hit or a high-power executive, everyone has something they are trying to achieve. Those who don’t often pretend that they do, just to fit in with the standard appearance.  If you look anywhere online, you will see people believe Toronto to be a living-breathing Instagram post. There are so many similarities between the individuals walking down the sidewalk. Those who are important and those who pretend to be all look the same in the city.

You may be wondering how anyone could find genuine love in a mess like that. The truth is that it’s not as hard as you’re thinking. Whether you’re planning a trip to Toronto or simply interested in meeting someone, there are a few things you’ll want to know.

First: Don’t get caught up in the Instagram-esque feel of the city.

Yes, it may feel like every second person you talk to has “something great” going on in their lives. This isn’t always true. There are more people pretending to have everything together than there are truly successful people. It may be hard to tell the difference at first, but there are some things you’ll start to pick up on. The successful among Torontonians don’t brag about the success. They know what they are worth and they don’t feel like they have anything to prove. Those who are trying to prove something likely have nothing worth proving. Although they often dress the same, the real successes will be able to walk the walk, while the rest just talk.

There are wealthy and goal-oriented individuals in the heart of Toronto and they are looking for that special someone. You simply have to find them. It’s not a game of “Where’s Waldo” either. If you want to meet someone successful, who also has their life on track, you just need to put yourself where they are. Many of the single Torontonians will frequent quiet cafes or hidden wine bars. They look for places that are public, but still private. For them, it is about unwinding and just taking in the atmosphere. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at your selection once you’ve found the hot hang-outs.

The one thing Toronto dating has in common with everywhere else is that your success depends on the work you’re willing to put in. If you’re sitting in the same park every day, trying to find someone new to chat with, you’re not likely to succeed. In order to meet someone new, you’ll have to make adjustments to your personal routine. That may involve stepping out of your comfort zone. This doesn’t mean you should put yourself in unsafe situations, but it is a good idea to try something new once in a while. You may need to take up new things, such as cooking classes or a new gym membership. Incorporate more of your hobbies and interests into a new routine. Set aside time to actually go out and look around. You can also take advantage of some of the social clubs that Toronto has. Just remember that being out is only half of the answer. The second half is being present.

Being present means that you’re not overly engaged in an activity that makes you unapproachable. You want people to feel like you’re open for conversation. Leave your phone in your pocket. Take public transportation every once in a while without headphones. By leaving yourself open, you’re able to attract attention, even in a crowded place. You should also be confident in approaching other people, instead of waiting for them to come to you.
