The dating site reports that Calgary women are the least picky, followed by women in Edmonton and Toronto.
President and owner of Vancouver-based Executive Search Dating Paddi Rice agrees with the findings of the survey, but doesn’t think being picky is necessarily a bad thing.“There are more people in Vancouver online dating than anywhere in the world because one of the largest free sites Plenty of Fish is based here,” he said.
“With a bigger pool, your odds of meeting a quality person are less, so screening is essential.”Rice said that women in Vancouver should be picky when messaging with men online, especially on free sites.“Any woman in Vancouver has a handful of online dating horror stores, so that’s probably the reason they have the perception of being picky,” he said.
In a Global BC Facebook poll, we asked men and women whether they agreed with the survey. And I’m not an unattractive man,” he said in a Facebook post.
Ryan Kelly said in his online dating experiences Vancouver women were pickier than those in other cities.“All the girls said they wanted genuine, well thought out, individual messages sent to them. Simon Lock agreed, “I’m close to giving up entirely,” he wrote.
