Manic pixie dream whirl: Women share stories of dating in Toronto

Background

So many matches, so little time. In this segment,we hear stories from women braving the dating scene in Toronto. We meet Liz, a Tinder guru who’s been stereotyped for her red hair and feminist ideals, who’s learned to laugh off the unpleasant parts of dating in the city.  Despite only having handful of good dates from her thousands of matches, Liz shares why she keeps swiping. We then meet Claire, a Toronto artist who gave up on dating apps after a string of unsatisfying experiences. She shares what its like to be stereotyped as an artist and why, despite men’s expectations, she’s just isn’t going to be your manic pixie dream girl. 

With thousands of matches you can guarantee at least a little creativity.
