The Editor's Top Pick - Canadian Award goes to the dating site, Lavalife. While Lavalife is not strictly a dating site for Canadians (it is popular in the United States as well), its heart is in Canada where it first started back in 1987 as a telephone dating service in Toronto. All of Canada's big cities like Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal are well represented in Lavalife with plenty of members to browse through in each of Lavalife's 3 dating communities. The dating communities are Dating, Relationship and Intimate, and make Lavalife unique among dating sites since, all of the communities are offered as one service and for one cost. When joining Lavalife members can specify to be included in one or more of the dating communities.
The other plus Lavalife members enjoy over other dating sites is, free members can reply to any paid members email or instant messenger request. This means when you become a paid member of Lavalife you can contact anyone, not just other paid members (like how most dating sites operate). A new feature this year is Lavalife's Speed Dates. As the name suggests this feature allows Lavalife members to go speed dating in the virtual world where you can meet up to 10 local singles in 30 minutes.
If you are a Canadian single and are considering trying an online dating site, then are winner of the 2009 Top Pick - Canadian award, Lavalife, would be the best place to start.
This Year's Runner Up for this award is: Canadian Personals.
