Meeting single men and women in Markham

With so many internationally renowned businesses having their headquarters in Markham, it's no wonder that many educated Canadian professionals call this city home. And, with the 2016 Census identifying around 38% of this dynamic population as single,1 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: with busy schedules and active lives, 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

This difficulty is why many thousands of singles across Canada have turned to online dating in the past few years. The appeal of taking the search for a partner online is obvious, particularly when you choose a more premium site: not only will you get a chance to be upfront about your dating needs, you'll become part of a community like-minded singles, and receive the support and encouragement you need to connect with a deeply compatible match.

How EliteSingles presents you with Markham dating opportunities

EliteSingles is just such a site. Not only do we have many educated, professional members in the Greater Toronto Area (including Markham and other areas of York Region), our supportive service can help you find the meaningful match you're looking for.

By really getting to know our members by means of our insightful, in-depth personality test, we're able to appreciate exactly what it is our members are looking for in a match, and how they expect love to fit into their busy lives. This enables us to put our thoughtful matchmaking process to work; analyzing personality, location, and relationship expectations in order to bring each of our members 3-7 partner suggestions each day - matches that we believe have the potential to become something amazing.

Dining and dating in Markham

Meeting for coffee is a favourite date idea for most of our members. Even better, there are plenty of options to choose from in Markham, with shops offering everything from bubble tea to English high tea and fresh scones. Sometimes though, it pays to go classic: opt for coffee (and 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, Novita Italian Cuisine is a fantastic option. With an inviting, romantic atmosphere (think blonde wood and warm light in the winter, and a pretty patio in summer), Novita scores points for ambience alone. But where it truly shines is the food: the menu is full of gorgeous Italian eats, including calamari, homemade pastas, and wonderful desserts.

Downtown Toronto
Making the most of Downtown Toronto

Making the most of Markham dating also means making the most of the fact that Markham is right on the doorstep of some beautiful Ontario scenery and fantastic recreation ideas. In the summer, trying driving north to Lake Simcoe - spend the day soaking up the sun together at Innisful Beach Park, then for a wonderful local meal - see our Barrie dating tips for ideas!

If 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. From downtown and Old Toronto right out to North York and Henry Farm, we have your Toronto dating sorted.

Exploring the outdoors

Of course there are also plenty of lovely Markham dating ideas a bit closer to home. For those who love the outdoors, Toogood Pond and Park is a great place to wander - just make sure to pack a picnic in the summer and your skates once it gets cold. Then, once you've worked up a fresh-air appetite, stroll over to the beautiful, 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 tastebuds (and your date!) will thank you. Ready to make the most of these Markham dating ideas?
