Summer love is the best, no pressure, no complexity, it's just about spending great time together with the excitement of what's coming next. It is commonly known that dating apps like Tinder are more popular during summer. If you already have many dates scheduled or you're planing to have some, this will convince why going a date in Vancouver is the best!
