We all know a few things change when you go from 20s to your 30s. You start appreciating sleep, you can't stay out past midnight and you're more aware of the nutritional value of what you put in your...
New Year's resolutions aren't just a myth. While some of us are resolving to exercise regularly or count calories, many are looking to start dating and find love in 2015 -- and putting their goals int...

A number of my clients are single women that are either active in the dating scene or just getting started. They typically come to me to help them come up with the perfect first (or second, or third) date look. Wanting to steer them in the right direction, I contacted a dating expert to make sure I was giving them the best advice along with their hot new looks.

Have the talk before you hook-up (or once you've peed right after) and set the lay of land. You both know what this is. Games are meant to be played with rope and whipped cream, not with each other's emotions. If you're feeling compromised about a situation have the courtesy to put it out there and mutual respect to problem-solve together.

My best friend tells me men are like cheeses. "What's your favourite cheese?" she asks her beau. "The orange kind." Uh oh. Red flag. Abort. This, gentlemen, is not a good answer.

If your love life was on hold in 2013 and you're ready to look for a spark again, it's time to get your online dating persona in order. Online dating is more popular than ever, and since it's currentl...
If my email inbox is any indicator, it's clear that modern men and women are clueless about how to behave on a first date. If you want to attract a quality person, you need to behave like a quality person. So check out these 1940s-inspired dating tips that might bring a little timeless sophistication to your dating M.O.
The Huffington Post reported earlier this year that more than one third of people meet their significant others online and those relationships are 25 per cent less likely to end in separation or divorce. So why is there still a slight stigma attached to it? As someone who met their longtime boyfriend online and an ongoing sideline spectator of my friends' experiences, I can share what I know.
Knights in shining armor, love at first sight, getting swept off your feet, yes we're talking about that certain fuzzy feeling as well. But believe it or not, four out of five Canadians still believe...
We're told there are plenty of fish in the sea, but through trial and error, most of us have probably figured out finding the 'one' isn't always the easiest task. But Valentine's Day is upon us and l...
A new malady has sprung up simultaneously with the ascent of online dating. It's called dating ADD. Symptoms of this disorder are similar to the more common form of ADD: easy distractibility, lack of focus and inability to stick to a task.
That's the thing about exes; it's impossible to keep them in the past. Whether their lingering trail is on your Facebook wall or on your couch, they still appear hauntingly and unexpectedly, like ghosts. At the end, in some twisted way we are all connected to one another -- I to his ex-lovers and he to mine -- trying to make sense of love and life.
On my most recent piece, Is Dating a Cold, Careless Game?, a reader offered the below: "Instead of constantly talking about Mars and Venus and how different men and women are, I wish we'd focus more on what common ground we have and how we complement each other." It got me thinking...
There is a very prevalent hostility between the sexes, constantly reinforced by today's no-strings-attached dating game. No one has to commit. No one is responsible. Everyone is out for himself or herself. Everyone is on the defensive. So many options and no need to choose. Immediate gratification coupled with complete lack of empathy.
Many guys find the dating scene to be a minefield as it is, but things just got more difficult for those that are unemployed and dating in these recessionary times. A new study from It's Just Lunch,...
Dear Colette, I've been online dating for a few years now and I haven't had all that much luck. When I write to the men I'd like to know better, their replies are either nonexistent or downright mean. I know the reason that they do this: Men are visual, and I'm not all that much to look at. I know that. What is a woman like me to do?
In school I was always the popular one. I wound up having a child at 22. Now I'm 27 and I've been single for four years. I use to be carefree and fun loving and I had so much faith that I would eventually meet the right person. But now, it seems all of my self-confidence has dissipated.
This is not an article about how to get yourself married. It's not about making yourself emotionally available, or putting yourself out there, or not returning calls right away. It's not even about finding the right match for you. I don't really know you. What I can speak to though is how to discern good men from bad.
When your partner says "I love you" too early in the relationship, it's often because he or she is feeling insecure themselves or in the relationship, or more likely both. But if you don't oblige with the return "I love you," it makes the other person feel even more insecure. But that's no excuse to lie.
Dating is almost like a game of musical chairs -- there's anticipation and excitement, as well as fear that we aren't going to find a seat before they're all gone! Throughout our lives we may sit down multiple times. When a chair doesn't work out, the music starts again and we go for our next chair.
If you had the chance to be the most beautiful person in the world or to be a Nobel Peace Prize winner, which would you choose? I am certain in the recesses of many people's brains, beauty would be chosen... And possibly for understandable reasons. How many people would choose beauty in a mate over brains?
I know approaching a person of interest may seem life threatening at times, but people are a lot friendlier than our imaginations allow us to believe. The sad thing is often too many guys and girls miss out! But this doesn't have to be the case!
Even the best of dates can awkward when the bill hits the table. Avoid a drawn-out exchange of "I'll get it," "No, I insist, I'll get it." If someone really wants to treat you, let them and graciously thank them. If the night is going well and you want to reciprocate, you could offer to carry on someplace else for dessert.
