WooYouDespite the lower than normal temperatures, singles are beginning to feel the heat of Spring Fever. Many are putting away their parkas and opting for lighter, brighter and more revealing attire. There is definitely an increased restlessness and sudden desire to get outdoors. Spring is a hormone-racing season, as endorphins inject new energy and enhance the smell of lust and love in the air!

Statistically speaking, online dating sites and matchmaking agencies experience a noticeable spike in activity and interaction among users and clients during the Spring season. Singles come out of hibernation and are eager to connect. Spring effects people by lowering their inhibitions and giving them the confidence to ask people out.

I am the Chief Dating Advisor of a new “FIRST DATE” app called Woo You. WooYou is an experimental dating app designed to inspire you to create your perfect first date and unique dating experiences. You can also choose to create a date using a pre-filled date template. There are three date categories you can choose from based on what you’re in the mood for. CulturalActivity and Food & Drink.

As soon as you launch WooYou, you’ll quickly be guided through an express account set-up using your Facebook account. It’s important to note your profile is hidden, you will only be able to browse dates once you CREATE-A-DATE. To get the best experience and increase your chances of going on more first dates this Spring, I’d encourage you to post several dates!

Activity Date Idea:


An outdoor park or boardwalk by the beach date is not just romantic, it’s a welcome, refreshing and much-anticipated date experience for most singles. Put on those shorts or a sundress, grab your shades, a blanket, picnic basket and plan a cozy date outside. You can both take in mother nature and remember to leave your cell phones on silent. For the adrenaline junkies and fit singles craving a little friendly competition with an attractive opponent, consider trying a boot camp class (indoor or outdoor), specialty workout class or drop-in sporting event. North Beach Volleyball offers indoor competitive and recreational drop-in classes or rock climbing.

Culture Date Idea:

For single culture lovers, a great first date option would be to attend a poetry slam or writer’s workshop. The Toronto Poetry Slam located at The Drake Hotel Underground is a bi-monthly spoken word competition. This is the perfect date for singles who love poetry and telling/sharing ideas and stories. It’s also an incredible date for shy singles and introverts. It’s an opportunity to step outside of their comfort zone in a fun, non-judgemental environment. It will be a lot of “pun.”

If poetry is not your thing, check out a show at your local theatre.  Love and Information is currently playing at the Canadian Theatre and the best part about this play is it’s all about love and the pains of modern human connection. You’ll have plenty to talk about and share a lot of laughs.

“Hailed as one of England’s greatest living playwrights, Caryl Churchill has provoked audiences for over four decades. Told through a theatrically-adventurous medley of short vignettes, Love and Information features an ensemble of actors performing over 100 roles.”

Food & Drink Date Idea:


An amazing and unique date idea for foodies is to choose a food or drink tour with Toronto Food Tours. Whiskey lovers will want to book the Urban Whiskey Trail and beer lovers can opt for the East End Craft Beer & Bites Tour. As for their Food Tour options, there are a wide selection of areas in the city to explore including Kensington Market, Old China Town, Greek Town on the Danforth or Little Italy. There is definitely something for everyone.
