I wanted to write this anonymously mainly because it lets me express this more openly. Dating is so hard in Toronto because everyone is messed up. Like really, everyone here is twisted.
And bare with me, because I’m not just venting about one gender or another or describing some deep seated problems I have with dating (I don’t feel I do badly in that regard). Hopefully I can just be real about why it’s so hard to date in Toronto Please forgive my over generalizations too - this post lends itself to that, though there are many exceptions. So, what do I mean? Let me talk about women. Most women you’re going to come across while dating have some major baggage or past trauma causing them to close some part of themselves.
This could run the gamut from a former bad relationship or worse. But, the common way woman will act is a very defensive posture towards men. They’ll approach men with these general attitudes: • The assumption that if they offer any man sex, that 100% would take it gladly.
So, they’re protecting themselves.. maybe? If you date online you’ll see countless profiles say “No hookups” as if they had to signal it out to stop it from happening.
• The need to front-load interactions with information. You’ll see this online with the need to know lots of details and the “What are you looking for?” types of questions. • They are fearful of interactions. High anxiety is often the case or maybe low self esteem. Perhaps just our culture of being closed off. Women seem locked into the contradictions of being a strong women (but yet expecting the man to pay), or wanting to be with a tall man (but not knowing why). Too many are just going through the motions.
• The core belief that if a man offers monetary rewards they must take them. Not always tied to sex either. If a man they know even as a friend offers money, they have to take it. It’s a one-sided way of keeping themselves from accepting responsibility. Now the men. They’re messed up too. You’ve probably heard of “Incels” who as a group seem to feel entitled to sex (that’s really screwed up), but men have other things that make them messed up here in too: • There may also be past baggage like women and that works in similar ways.
• Men jerk off far too much to porn. The frequency of it is probably not the worst part. The problem is men often stop being able to separate a real experience from a “porn-like” experience. Men in Toronto then try to hem to specific type of women and act in specific ways (like never looking at a women’s face during sex). • Many men here just don’t believe it’s possible to have a platonic relationship with the sex they’re attracted to.
This toxic attitude poisons relationships before they can even get far enough to be more. • Self esteem issues because - I think - men just get no validation from other men or others.
They’re taught early to be stoic and emotionless. This has the effect of closing them off from meaningful open relationships. This one goes far and deep for men, however. • Men want sex. This in itself is not messed up. But men tend to hedge their bets on woman they think will give them sex without thinking things through more. And then some things both sexes share: • Guarded feelings, lack of confidence, inhibited.
This feeling that we Torontonians are collectively prudes about our emotions, our bodies, and most definitely about our sexualities.
• Paranoia: It kid of speaks for itself, but in some ways I think our media saturation over every single bad story has so many of us thinking “This guy could be a serial killer” It’s nuts, yes, but when you go out on a date with even a small amount of paranoia, it paints the entire experience differently.
• Proximity bullshit: When dating another, there’s this expectation that the other person be close. Like closer than 14 km from them. People in Toronto fail to think a functional relationship can work outside of that area (hint, it can). • Looking for the first mistake and running: If you want to be good at dating in Toronto, it might be a good idea to be perfect.
Or, no, be perfectly what your mate wants. Dating here, you’ll find that people will run quickly once they catch you’re first mistake (I know, I’ve done it too). I think dating in Toronto is just so terribly difficult because everyone is messed up and closed off.
I often connect with someone else here and after just a few minutes of small talk, I’m ready to walk away - they have that vibe about them.
I'm a minority woman too that lives in Montreal and on the several times Ive been to Toronto, Ive definitely met some nice guys in Toronto, better (in my view) than Montreal guys in terms of values, style and seriousness. Now, what I noticed about Toronto guys is that they most of the time stay in their work or friend clique when they go out, so it can be hard to talk to them, but its possible. As someone mentioned previously, I'd advise to go to church, you can do volunteer work as well.
Go to a 5@7 after work with a friend and just mingle/talk with people (networking event), you can check on Eventbrite too, see if there's some event you can go to with a friend. You can have a nice dinner with friends, then check out some cool bars/cafes where there seems to be people. The goal here is to go out, be out there to talk and meet.
If everything fails, try speed dating…I've never done it, but it could be nice. PS: You shouldn't think that no one wants you…Maybe it's more that you're not going to activities or mingling enough with people in order to meet (I couldn't say that as a sure fact as i don't know if you actually do go out often) It can be a plethora of reasons, but most of all, I think it’s because Toronto is a “Rat Race city”.
I get the “Work hard. Play if/when you can.” vibe here… That said; Just because it’s hard, doesn’t mean it’s impossible: • Look for someone in your vicinity. It could be that someone is or has been trying to get your attention , but you just haven’t noticed them. Someone at your gym? In your neighbourhood? Local grocery store? • Get involved. Expand your horizons by taking on a new hobby, going to temple/church, doing public service, joining a movement that you’re passionate about, or anything else that piques your interest.
The purpose here is to broaden the spectrum of people you come into contact with. • Be open. This may or may not apply to you, but sometimes we can get attached to an image in our head of the person, or type of person, that we’d like to get acquainted with.
Do away with that mindset. You could spend hours looking for a knife, when a pair of scissors will do the same job. • Stop looking. This might sound counter-productive, but it rings true every time. If you step back and take the time to take care of yourself, love might just come around and find you. Cheers! :) What do you mean by “men get away with a lot”?
And which men are you saying get away with a lot, native white Canadians or the immigrant men? What kind of minority are you? Black women might have a difficult time dating non-black men to be sure, but I doubt most East Asian women would have a problem finding a boyfriend of any race in Toronto.
Hispanic and Middle Eastern women should have an easy time as well, while East Indian and other Desi women might have a (slightly) more difficult time but should be able to find a mate of any race in a city as large and multicultural as Toronto without *that* much trouble. Have you tried Tinder and other dating sites? Craigslist? Bars and nightclubs? Don’t complain about not being able to find a significant other if you’re not even putting yourself out there and are simply expecting to get hit on when you don’t go anywhere but the grocery store.
Otherwise, try making eye contact, and smiling when the other person sees you. You have to be proactive, and stop expecting Prince Charming to come and sweep you off your feet if you don’t put yourself out there and make it known that you’re available; Prince Charming doesn’t even know you exist, and has never met you or heard of you, and he can’t rescue you if simply go about your daily routine and don’t put in any effort to meet any potential partners.
best dating in toronto difficulty - Difficulties for Students to find Good Jobs in Toronto
There are a lot of jobs available in the city of Toronto, but there are also plenty of people available to fill these positions. The more people we have in our city, the higher the qualifications for certain positions are, thus, the harder it is for our city's students to find good paying jobs.
Students can attain jobs fairly easily, as there are always people and places hiring for younger individuals. The key here is "good" jobs. Most of these places that are looking for help, and to hire, tend to be in the food services industries, such as McDonalds, which usually start to pay at minimum wage, with no bonuses or tips. These big corporations make so much money, and I'm sure paying such low wages has an influence on their success. When working at McDonalds, they do offer raises every 6 months, but the raises vary from $0.05 Faith, Fraud & Minimum Wage to $0.20 per hour, which is basically almost no change.
I suppose people will still work at places that pay minimum wage, and the employers know this fact, so they will continue to pay out this low income. There are some fairly better jobs, still in the food services, which can be more financially rewarding, such as serving food, as a waitress, and attaining tips from customers. Now, the only problem with this position is that in order to work at a good restaurant, or any average restaurant for that matter, you have to have prior experience as a waitress, and you must be a certain age to serve alcohol in the area.
This is not always a bad circumstance, as employers should seek people with experience, and if they do serve alcohol, there should be a restriction on age. But having all these restrictions and qualifications really... ... raza Nativa americana. Bibliografia Jacka, Jerry and Gill. When Clay Sings. Portland: Small Fry Press, 1976. Muth, Marcia.

If you’re reading this, you most likely want to change something about your dating life. Let’s face it; dating in the world today isn’t easy. As a man you need to be confident, but not too confident, be charming, but not fake, make her feel special, but not be creepy, and perform what might be seen as a pretty complicated “mating ritual”.
As a result, you can become so paralyzed by analysis that you lose your charm. Or, like many men, you might just experience rejection after rejection, and never know why. In over 10 years of being a dating coach in Toronto and around the world, I have seen every problem under the sun.
Some complaints I have helped my clients overcome are: • I have trouble starting conversations with women I am interested in. • I have trouble thinking of things to say or keeping the conversation going. • I have trouble getting attraction – women always say “I’m a nice guy, but…” • I have trouble reading the signals women give off and understanding when a woman is interested in me. • I often get interest from women but have trouble getting them out on dates or they cancel on me.
• I have difficulties with confidence, “inner game”, assertiveness or anxiety in dating situations. Even the most ambitious and successful men can often find themselves underperforming in their dating life, it’s not unusual. I’ve coached athletes, businessmen, scientists, schoolteachers and truckers – men from every race, nationality and background – on how to improve their dating lives. Whether you’re looking for more choices in your dating life, looking to meet someone special for a long term relationship, or just looking to get back in the game after a relationship, my effective, common-sense dating coaching can help you achieve the goals you desire.
Here’s what my students have to say about me: “They don’t teach manipulation techniques, lines or routines. Chris Shepherd emphasizes a holistic approach in developing a lifestyle that attracts women into your life.” – Stefan What I also find impressive is that the methods work for someone like me, a man in his mid-forties… These are well structured systems for a thinking man.” – Mitch Click here for .
