It costs nothing to create a full dating profile and search the full database of available singles. Once you want more meaningful communication a membership payment is required.Pros: Large selection of Canadian members; Feature rich; Available on mobile; Full searching control; Extensive matching algorithm in place. (or read our detailed review) e Harmony takes a different approach from typical dating sites.
The site does contain advertising, but that can be removed with a membership payment (which also includes ad-free browsing; message filters; advanced search parameters – like body type and question answer; browse invisibly; know if your message has been read; and more).
Lavalife pretty much sticks to the basics of a dating site including advanced search options, but has one unique feature: the “Backstage”.
With this, members can choose to show select photos to only certain people – instead of to everyone who views the profile.
Members can create a profile, browse other profiles and send a note of interest (a ‘like’) free of charge.
Unique to Lavalife is the ability to respond to an email or IM free of charge as well.
