Meet Professional Singles

by eharmony Editorial Team February 18, 2020

Online Dating for Professionals in Canada

For busy professional singles, finding time to date can be a challenge. After all, how do you schedule time to meet new people in between long days at the office, back-to-back meetings and last-minute business trips? It can often be frustrating to have to cancel dinner plans to stay back at the office, or to turn down the offer to spend Friday night happy hour with your friends because there’s just too much work to get done. 

But even the most exciting career can start to feel lacklustre without someone to share it with. And that’s where eharmony comes in. We connect busy professional singles with other intelligent, hard-working singles who are looking for meaningful relationships. Our scientific matching system goes deeper than other dating websites to help you find a love that truly lasts. 

Compatibility is Key

All good marriages and relationships begin with great chemistry. After all, finding someone you feel that spark with is a wonderful feeling. But the secret to strong, long-lasting relationships isn’t chemistry; it’s compatibility: knowing you and your partner are connected on a deep level, wanting the same things and holding the same values.

We help you find that compatible match by giving you our comprehensive Relationship Questionnaire to fill out. You’ll be asked questions about everything from your favourite way to spend a Friday night to the way you were brought up. We use this to get an insight into who you really are so we can match you with compatible singles. It’s a scientifically proven formula designed to get you better dates with people you really connect with. 

Matching You With People Who Just “Click”

With over 35 years’ experience creating long-lasting matches, our method has been finely honed to allow our members to meet and date terrific, compatible people. We’ve identified the 32 Key Dimensions of Compatibility, which cover important factors like your social style, character, sense of humor and adaptability – a key part of getting to know you. We then match you with other people who share complementary values, behaviours and attitudes. 

The way you relate to people, the way you think about the world and the things you want for your future all play a part in determining who you are and the people you should date. 

Find love – wherever you are

No matter where in Canada you’re based, you can search for single men and women who live nearby. Alternatively, if you travel a lot for work, you can adjust your search filters to include cities or even countries on the other side of the map. So whether you’re looking for love around the corner or across the world, you can filter your search accordingly.

Clear and effective communication

As most busy professionals know, communicating clearly is a big part of building relationships, both in the workplace and online. But it can be tricky to navigate the first few messages you send to someone you’ve just met on the internet. That’s why our Guided Communication tool is a step-by-step process that allows you and your match to exchange initial communications without revealing too much too soon. It’s a safe and easy way to get to know someone at your own pace.

Dating Tips for Professionals

If you’ve decided to give online dating a try, here’s some expert advice from our Candian Matchmakers to ensure your first date goes without a hitch:

  • Pick a place you’ve been to before. A first date is always a new and sometimes nerve-racking experience, so if you’re choosing where to meet for the first time, pick a place you’re familiar with. That way you’ll feel relaxed and at ease, and it will be easier to decide what to eat or drink if you’ve seen the menu before.
  • Don’t come straight from the office. If possible, try to leave your work day behind. Either choose to meet for a drink on a week night after you’ve had a chance to go home and change, or choose a weekend night or even afternoon to meet. That way, you’re not rushing from the office and you can take time to look your best.
  • Remember it’s a date, not a job interview. Sometimes it can be hard to switch off your “business mode”, even if you really like your date. Try to relax and remember you don’t have to prove anything. Just enjoy your date’s company and try to get to know them without asking too many questions. Where you can, try to leave work behind and talk about your other achievements, hobbies and interests. 
  • Be yourself. Our relationship website is designed to get to know the real you – just as you are. Which means all you have to do on your first date with someone is be authentic. Since we match our members on deeper levels, you just have to show up and be you. 

Making Dating Easy

At eharmony you won’t have to browse through hundreds of random profiles looking for someone who catches your eye. As a professional we know you don’t have an endless amount of time to spend trawling the internet for people to date, and that’s why we do the hard work for you. After you complete the questionnaire, you’ll receive your free personality profile, which will be sent to you directly.  You’ll then receive your matches, and once you choose your membership plan, you can begin communicating with them directly, however you choose. It’s that simple. 

Your next great date is just around the corner. Register today and find out who it’ll be!
