Lifestyle Top 22 Dating Tips for Men



When you decide on opening up an online dating profile on a site like and, you need to remember that there is a lot that goes into a profile. Websites like give users many options for displaying their interests and likes. Erin Stevens of the Men’s Fitness website gave some very helpful hints as well for online dating in November, 2014.

1. Pick a screen name that is mature and not perverted. If your screen name is Captain69, women will know that you are clearly seeking one thing.

2. Use a high quality picture. Make sure it’s not a selfie. Women would love to see you in a nice suit and tie in your photo. Don’t use photos with your ex-girlfriends in them either.

3. When you reply to women, make sure that they are looking for the same things that you are. Just because she looks like your type doesn’t mean that she may be the one for you.

4. Avoid telling white lies. For instance, if you don’t have a car, don’t tell her you’ll pick her up.

5. Keep it as simple as you can. Don’t drag out details online, make sure that you two have something to talk about on your first date.

6. Make sure that you ask the right questions when you message her. Ask her what she does for fun, what books she likes, etc.

7. Make your first date memorable and original.

8. Be funny. Women love when a guy has a great sense of humor. It is one of the most wanted traits in a man, so tell jokes, and make sure they’re not offensive.

9. When you meet a woman online, make sure that when the two of you are out to dinner that you pay attention to what she is saying. Don’t get on your phone or look at other women around you.

10. Keep your promises to her. If you tell her that you will call her again, make sure you do. Don’t just tell her.

11. Talk to her at dinner. There is nothing worse than silence on a first date. It may be small talk, but at least you can get to know her better.

12. Be a gentleman. Open the door for her and get her chair. Chivalry is not dead. Not yet anyways.

13. Compliment her. Make sure she knows that you think she’s pretty and smart. Girls love to hear that stuff!

14. Remember your manners. Don’t burp or fat in front of her yet. Save that for when you two are old and married.

15. Make decisions. If she doesn’t know what kind of wine to order, take a chance and order it for the two of you.

16. Offer to pay for dinner. A lot of women are offended by this, but others really appreciate it.

17. The boys can wait to meet her. Make sure that you and your new lady have been working on your relationship before you introduce her to all of the boys.

18. Dress appropriately. Make sure that you don’t look like a slob when you go out on the first date together.

19. If you want to have kids at some point, make sure that this is on the table.

20. Stay sober on your date. It is all right to have a glass of wine or two, but don’t start doing shots and making an ass of yourself in front of your date. This may give her the wrong impression.

21. Don’t obsess over her just yet. It can be a little creepy for you to call and text nonstop and it appears needy.

22. says to not build a fantasy based on two or three dates. She may not quite be ready to marry you after a couple of dinners.

Once you have followed these tips, you are bound to find just the right woman for you.

Ontario Line subway construction permanently shuts down beloved Toronto bakery



The Danforth is set to lose yet another neighbourhood favourite to the Ontario line subway construction as Greek bakery Akropolis Pastries prepares to close its doors for good after over 40 years in business. 

They announced on Instagram that they’ll shut down in mid-August, sharing a painting of the storefront alongside a simple message thanking their customers.

Dozens of people took to the comments to express their love for the establishment and their years of service to the community.

“Thank you for your friendly customer service & delicious goodies. You will be missed,” said one customer. 

Another added, “You always had the best akropolis pies and always great service. Good luck!”

Several more chimed in with hearts and crying emojis, as well as shout-outs to their favourite dishes. 

The bakery’s president, Bill Gekas, confirmed to the Toronto Star that he received official notice that Akropolis was to be expropriated in the winter of 2022.

He says that the offer from Metrolinx, who had previously promised to compensate affected business owners accordingly, was below market value and that he planned to take the company to court. 

He continued, further pressing the company for taking away affordable housing from his upstairs tenants without providing them a suitable replacement. 

Akropolis isn’t the first Greektown business to announce its expropriation, with Flox on Danforth and Home Hardware the most recent neighbour to share that they’ve fallen victim to the Ontario line.

They also certainly won’t be the last, as Metrolinx has confirmed that they’ll be shuttering 13 businesses on the Danforth to make way for construction. 

The forthcoming transit line is currently due to open in 2031 — although, if the Eglinton Crosstown LRT is any indication, that won’t be the case.

Canada considers capping international student visas to address housing crisis



The Canadian government is considering a cap on international student visas to tackle the housing crisis.

During a press conference on Monday, Housing Minister Sean Fraser told reporters that a cap is “one of the options” Ottawa is considering to address the lack of housing amidst the “explosive growth” of temporary immigration programs like the international student program.

“The international student program has seen such growth and in such concentrated areas that it is really starting to put an unprecedented level of demand, in some instances, on the job market,” he explained.

“But given the economic conditions we’ve been living with for the past couple of years, you see it in a more pronounced way on the housing market.”

Fraser stressed that the conversation isn’t about blaming newcomers for Canada’s housing challenges.

He acknowledged that these issues have been decades in the making and have been perpetuated by previous Liberal and Conservative governments.

“[Governments] retreated heavily from making the basic investments in social housing that is now revealing itself through the market today,” said Fraser.

According to official data, as of December 2022, there were over 800,000 foreigners with active international student visas in Canada.

Fraser says that before seriously considering a cap, the government plans to work closely with Canadian universities to ensure these students have a place to live.

He adds that that includes addressing some of these institutions’ exploitation of international students.

“When you see some of these institutions that have five, six times as many students enrolled as they have spaces for them in the building, and you see them continue to pop up in plaza colleges across the country, you’ve got to start to ask yourself some pretty tough questions,” said Fraser.

According to the housing minister, the government has no immediate plans to lower the number of international student visas.

Fraser says he’ll be discussing options with Immigration Minister Marc Miller.

Toronto’s financial woes could mean delay of Eglinton LRT and Ontario Line opening



Facing a budget deficit of a whopping $46.5 billion over the coming decade, the City of Toronto and Mayor Olivia Chow have got their work cut out for them in trying to reduce costs and increase revenue during what is now being called an “unprecedented financial crisis.”

Among 13 suggested courses of action that staffers put on the table during an Executive Committee meeting last week are a new municipal sales tax, an increase in land transfer taxes for multi-million dollar homes, and permitting the Toronto Parking Authority to charge higher fees for on-street parking, which is currently capped at $5 an hour.

Though these very feasible options were the most widely-reported ones, there are a few parts of the new 192-page long-term financial plan that are quite concerningly being overlooked.

As local political expert and columnist Matt Elliott noted in the latest edition of his City Hall Watcher newsletter, the City Manager and Interim Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer have made a couple of pretty bold recommendations for paths forward, taking aim at the provincial government for not allocating more funding to the city.

Further down the list, we find a few items that feel more dramatic than the aforementioned levies, including, at number 11, a push to potentially refuse to fund the operation of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT and Finch West subway lines that the city is currently on the hook to pay for.

As Elliott illuminated, the document states that “It was never foreseen that these new operating costs would begin in circumstances when the City had such limited capacity to afford them. Deferring the launch of these two transit lines could reduce the 2024 pressure by up to $106 million.”

Similarly, item 12 advises that “City Council inform the Province of Ontario that in the absence of a new funding model for transit operations in the City of Toronto… the City will pause negotiation of further funding agreements for Provincial Priority Transit Projects and any future provincial transit expansion projects.”

These priority transit projects include the Ontario Line, on which construction has already commenced, most noticeably at Queen and Yonge.

Though these are only proposed ideas for ensuring a better fiscal future at this point, we will have to see which, if any, of the recommendations leadership heeds.

Though there would be inevitable backlash to pressing pause on the decade-plus-in-the-making Eglinton Crosstown LRT or the forthcoming Ontario Line, would anyone in the city really be surprised if a major public transportation project was delayed yet again?
