Have you ever thought that it was too difficult to meet someone at a bar/pub, club, out and about in social situations? I am sure there has been a time in most peoples life when they have thought this and almost given up on the dating scene. We go through stretches of time where we don't want to deal with the whole process and we would rather just be "loners" and keep to ourself and with our friends because it is easier then stepping out of our shell and facing some of our fears. I know I have thought the same thing myself and instead of staying in my little box what I turned to was online dating services. I am sure you all know what these are and some of you have tried them at one point or another. I am going to go through a few of these services and explain them in a bit more detail here so some of you can try them out if you feel they may work for you.

Probably the most popular one of all is Plentyoffish.com. If you go to Google.com and search online dating services you most likely will come up with this dating service. As far as I know it is the top rated dating site in Canada and is ranked very highly in the United States as well. The design is very simple and the site is easy to navigate. It was designed by Marcus Frind who thought that most of the dating websites on the web at the time were too expensive to join so he created this free alternative for people that soon became very popular and many people joined it. If you are ever interested in online dating services this is probably one of the best ones to start with.

Another big name in the online dating service industry is Lavalife.com. This is a very popular site that is advertised all over the web and I think it may be also advertised on the radio as well. You can signup for free and meet local singles. Like other online dating services you can create a profile, search for singles, and make contact with singles you are interested in. The website claims to be the only site with 3 unique communities and is one of the best dating sites in Canada. It also has a feature to instant message singles.

eHarmony is another very popular online dating service website in Canada. It is advertised on the web and also on the radio and TV ads. The reason why some people may want to try this system is because of the patented Compatibility Matching System that narrows all the singles down to a highly selective group of singles. As well eHarmony claims that 90 eHarmony members get married every single day! By using this service you can break the ice easily and find out who is truly interested in you.

PerfectMatch.com is another site that is pretty popular when you look for online dating services. With PerfectMatch.com you get: free compatibility profile, free to receive perfect matches, free to view photos, and free to read email. Like many of the other dating sites PerfectMatch.com has a compatibility system that was designed based off of relationship expert Dr. Pepper Schwartz research. Dr. Schwartz has been on such things as CNN.com, The Oprah Winfrey Show, NBC, ABC, and Today. There are many ways you can connect with singles at PerfectMatch.com such as the IceBreaker feature where you can ask an IceBreaker question. If you struggle meeting people at bars/clubs, social events, etc this may be the right site for you to try.

Now if you are searching for online dating services in Canada one you may come across is MatchMate.ca. This is not one I have personally used myself but it seems to be quite a popular online dating service as well. The site has all the typical type of things you expect in an online dating service such as: pics, vids, friends, mail, chat, etc. It looks like it is free to signup as well. So if you are in Canada and are interested in meeting people this site may be worth while to check out.

So the online dating services I mentioned above are just a few of the many online dating services out there. I would suggest if you are interested in meeting someone this way that you signup for one of these websites and build a profile and see how it goes. Don't get too disappointed if things don't work out right away. You need to give it time and maybe over time just update your profile and see who you meet. I would always be careful in who you meet as well and where you meet in the first place. You wouldn't want to meet someone in a very private place at first because the person you've been talking to may not be the person they really are. Just meet in a public place and everything should be fine. Hopefully this information I have given here is helpful for most of you to start with and if it isn't exactly the information you were looking for I would suggest going to Google.com and searching "Online Dating Services" and I am sure you will find the site you are looking for.
