Meeting Single Men and Women in Markham

Nestled within The Greater Toronto Area, the city of Markham is home to over 320,000 Canadians. And with the 2016 Census identifying around 38% of this dynamic population as single, it's no wonder that Markham dating opportunities seem extremely promising. At least, that's the way it looks on paper. However, for many Markham singles, dating is not so easy. Busy schedules and active lives mean it can be hard for single professionals in Markham to meet any fellow singles in their day-to-day, let alone men and women who want the same things from love. 

Meeting Markham Singles Online

With the growing difficulty of finding meaningful relationships the old-fashioned way, it’s no surprise that singles across Canada have turned to online dating in droves. The appeal of taking the search for a partner online is obvious and with online dating becoming the norm over the last decade, its popularity makes total sense. By choosing a premium dating site such as EliteSingles the search for love is even easier, you can be upfront about your partner preferences and be part of a like-minded community.

How EliteSingles Increases Your Markham Dating Opportunities

With many interesting, professional members in the Greater Toronto Area (including Markham, Vaughan, and other areas of York Region), EliteSingles’ supportive service can help you find the meaningful match you're looking for.

To help your Markham dating experience become as successful as possible, we ask all our members to complete an in-depth personality test that helps us glean insight into the type of person you are, your lifestyle and your preferences in a partner. Following this, our intelligent algorithm will work to pair you with like-minded singles and you’ll receive 3-7 partner suggestions each day. And after that, it’s over to you. Check out a match’s profile, send that all-important first message, get chatting and discover a spark!

Dining and Dating in Markham

Meeting for coffee is a tried and true date idea and with everything from bubble tea to English high tea available in Markham, there’s something for everyone. But to keep things casual, opt for coffee (or even brunch) at Alchemy Coffee — their delicious brews and tasty menu keep making waves with coffee lovers around the GTA.

For lunch or dinner dates, Smash Kitchen and Bar is a great choice. With a friendly, inviting atmosphere and a menu of eclectic dishes, Smash is a Markham dating winner. Start things off with a drink at the bar and then grab a table to enjoy some of their delicious Canadian fare.

Downtown Toronto
Making the Most of Downtown Toronto

Making the most of Markham dating also means taking advantage of the fact that Markham is right on the doorstep of some beautiful Ontario scenery and fantastic recreation ideas. In the summer, try driving north to Lake Simcoe — spend the day soaking up the sun together at Innisful Beach Park.

If you don't like the idea of facing all that driving, then why not take the train into downtown Toronto? We've created a Toronto date ideas map, with one date suggestion within walking distance of every single subway stop, making it easier to have an amazing day of dating in the city.

Exploring the Outdoors

There are also plenty of Markham dating ideas closer to home. For those who love the outdoors, Toogood Pond Park is a great place to wander — pack a picnic in the summer and skates in winter. Then, once you've worked up a fresh-air appetite, stroll over to historic Main Street Unionville.

Dating back to 1794, Unionville is a truly beautiful, quaint place that makes a unique backdrop for a romantic date. Even better, the old buildings are home to many of Markham's favourite eateries. Round off your date with coffee and sweets from the Old Firehall Confectionery, your taste buds (and your date!) will thank you.
