#2 ca.cupid.com

This website looks promising thanks to its simple and pleasant web design, making it our second pick. They showcase the company’s major strengths on the first page. You can sign up with Facebook or with a valid email.
So, what does Ca.Cupid has to offer? For starters, a well thought and effective questionnaire called Q-Matching. Your answers will be the basis upon which matches are sent your way.
Second, they have an anti-scam system that allows members to report spam. You could also activate the safe-mode in order to chat only with verified users.
If you have questions, they have a 24/7 support system in place for people who are a bit skeptic about signing up or don’t understand how to use the available services.
Those who are keen on browsing from a smartphone or tablet will be happy to know they can download an app from the App Store or Google Play. No support for Windows phones though.

#3 connectingsingles.com

The site is advertised as one without hidden fees. ConnectingSingles is more than just a dating website as it offers a lot of different sections to users for free. For example, you can take quizzes, answer polls, read blog articles, comment on forums, listen to music, play games and so on.
Members are allowed to upload multiple photos and create a list of favorite profiles in order to save the ones that interest you most. There is an advanced matching system as well as thorough filters for profile searches.
This duality is fairly rare as most dating websites opt for one or the other. Providing both options to singles living in Vancouver, it allows them to choose the method that works best in their particular case as opposed to obligating them to stick to either algorithm results or profile browsing.
Another interesting feature that sets this dating site as a top choice is the fact that they allow gay people to sign up.

#5 mate1.com

This dating website has a huge database of more than 36.5 million members, and ranks on the firth position. The question is why did all these people sign up? First of all, it’s free. They offer a voice recording feature for which you don’t have to pay. You also get advanced search filters and the ability to send unlimited messages.
Second, they have the advantage of diversity. You will find here people of all religions, races and sexual orientations. Mate1.com is useful for anyone looking for a partner, be it for a casual encounter or a long term relationship.
They have countless success stories on their website from real people who either had a lot of fun with Mate1 members or found the love of their life online.
The website has a mobile version for those who prefer browsing through profiles from their smartphones while they wait for the bus, spend time in transit or wait for a boring class to be over.

#5 pof.com

POF is an acronym for “plenty of fish” and presumably makes a reference to the well known phrase “there’s plenty of fish in the water.” Luckily, this saying applies to the size of the member database too, considering 50k people sign up every day even though they’re not all in Vancouver, making it our fifth pick.
The signup form is readily available and quite easy to fill out. You have to specify your gender, birthday, ethnicity (for compatibility purposes because some people want to stay within ethnic boundaries), and a valid email.
After that, you will take their so called Chemistry Test. Don’t worry, you will not be asked to balance a Redox equation. The questionnaire is meant to match you with people you are most compatible with.
You should think a while when answering the questions if you are looking for long term partner. On the other hand, this is not essential if you’re only looking for casual encounters.
