For those technophiles embarking on new dates in 2012, Canadian Relationship Insider Kimberly Moffit has developed a guide for navigating the digital dating world.


  1. DON’T use your phone on a date. According to, the number one first date deal breaker for Canadian singles is having your match be distracted by his/her mobile. Show your date you’re invested in getting to know them by granting them your full attention.


  1. DO wait before ‘friending’ your date on Facebook. Most Canadians think you should take it slow when it comes to adding a new romance to your social networking sites. You wouldn’t rush into introducing a date to your friends – don’t do it online either. Sometimes being a little mysterious is a good thing.


  1. DON’T be scared to dial. Email and text messaging may be modern love letters, but it’s still nice to hear a voice once in awhile. Phone conversations are a great indicator of chemistry, and there’s less likelihood of tone being misinterpreted.  


  1. DO try online dating. Over half of Canadian singles have visited an online dating site in the past year. Broaden your horizons and your social network by checking it out.
