Dating in Ottawa is never easy. You either have 100 mutual friends (and you've also heard their name thrown around by multiple girls) or you know absolutely nothing about this person–which usually doesn't work out in your favour either. And if you're single and lonely, don't even bother signing up for Tinder. It will make you way less confident in the opposite sex–trust me.
Whether you're looking for Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now, you'll definitely learn that when going out to bars, you most likely won't find either. Now, I'm not saying this will always be the case. However, if you continue reading, you'll realize the types of guys to stay away from and the types of guys you may be able to bring home to Dad (if you met him at Tequila Jacks, don't even bother.)
