Are Vancouver women too picky when it comes to dating?
A new survey from an online dating site has ranked Vancouver women as the pickiest in Canada and the least likely to respond to a man’s message online.

Sorry to bust those verging-on-misogyny bubbles, but women on dating websites have ample reason to be selective.
