We all love Tinder™ dating, the thrill of the swipe, the fun of checking out truly local singles around us and messaging and flirting the night away. But sometimes we’re looking for a little more. More in depth information about our crush, more than just flirty messages, and more community features too. Take a look at our top 9 serious alternatives to Tinder™ for flirting in Canada.


Zoosk is a young persons online dating site, and much like Tinder™, it offers a fun environment to find singles online. With over 35 million members, you get as many options for fun and flirting as with Tinder™, but the difference is that their own unique behavioral matchmaking technology helps you find better and better matches the more you use the site and mobile app. Careful, it’s addictive.

Elite Singles

While Tinder™ leads the way in casual, sometimes that’s just not what you’re looking for. If you’ve played the bar and club scene for years, and are done with the casual romances and flings, and are truly ready to settle into something more real, you couldn’t choose a better option than Elite Singles. Their innovative compatibility quiz helps you find out what you’re really looking for in love, and match you up with the perfect chance at love.

Match.com has the weight of its successes behind it as a dating website, and boasts the success or more relationships than any other dating website out there. It offers a ton of Tinder™ like features such as Match Mixer and Match Stream, where you can see endless local singles suggested to you and say yes or no in a similar way to the popular dating app. Throw in added dating tools like profiling and search functionality, including a great ‘Deal breaker’ tool which keeps unwanted matches from your results, and you can see why Match sails into the top 3.

Another great compatibility choice, we love the innovative Book of You offered by eHarmony once you fill out the questionnaire. Every wondered why you never make the right romantic choices when it comes to flirting and love? This might help with why. Once you’ve been introduced to your matches, eHarmony also offers more from communication than apps like Tinder™, including the great SecureCall feature where you can chat on the phone, risk free.

Ever started chatting to someone on Tinder™ only to find they aren’t looking for the same level of casual fun as you are? Loveaholics has the answer, with three modes of browsing, Normal, Sexy and No Limits. This means you wont be shown random profiles by location in the hope of finding a match who wants what you do. Instead, you will be shown the right kinds of photos and profiles who fit exactly the flirt level you’re searching for. Add in extra flirting tools like chatrooms and being able to search in couples, and you can see why Loveaholics appeals to those looking for more than a Tinder™ date.

Browsing through Tinder™ is all well and good, but if you’re the slightly more mature dater, you may get bored of swiping left to so many inappropriate suggestions. That’s why we love niche senior dating website SeniorPeopleMeet. Everyone on the site is aged 40+, so hardly over the hill, but it keeps away singles in their 20’s who may be the same age as your kids let’s put it that way. We love the keyword search, which allows you to find a match with a specific interest you do.

If you’re looking for a religious match, you probably have had little luck on casual dating apps like Tinder™. Apart from not being able to narrow down the search by religion or interest, it really does attract the more casual dater, something you’re probably not interested in if your faith is very important to you. Head to Canadian Christian dating website ChristianMingle. A fully Christian pool of daters, they offer religious filters in their search, as well as extras like daily bible verses and a prayer wall.

Christian search


Online can be overwhelming, and the sheer choice on some of the best dating sites and apps can run into the millions of members, making you feel that you don’t even know where to begin. It’s not for everyone, and ProfessionalMatch is the antidote to all of that. Here, you work with professional offline matchmakers to find the right person for you, and they organize a real life meet. Simple. Bypass the hours of messaging, and head straight to a first date.

home page


With millions of members on Tinder™ and other popular dating websites, sometimes you need a way to stand out from the crowd. We love the ‘Promote’ feature on Flirt, where you can highlight yourself to other users with a flirty introduction message and a profile which can’t be ignored.
