Hey guys, this is my first post here so I'm sorry if this or anything similar have already been posted.

So, I've been doing a lot of serious researching for the last 3 weeks on which major city in Canada might be right for me, but its been a tough decision. I graduate high school next year (2013) and could really use well rounded advice.

Few questions (hopefully not too many):

1) Will I be able to make friends in any of these cities?

2) How are the girls? I've heard a couple of things, mixed really on the attitude of some (mostly in Toronto), and if so are they hot? Would I have a shot at any? Here's a pic so you can judge:

3) Safety; which parts of these city are safest?

4) Day & Nightlife; which city is more fun?

5) Finally, from personal experience which city would you recommend more?

Thanks for any help you could give me. Looking forward to becoming an "active" member of this forum. Considering how friendly it is.

It is insane to think that the girls in one city will be prettier than in another. All those cities have large populations with a mix of people from all ages and ethnicities and also all levels of "hotness".
It is also impossible for us to say which city will be easiest for you to make friends.
When you graduate from HS, what do you plan to do?
What are your interests?
Where do you live now?

Thanks for that, what I meant was which has the friendliest people.

When you graduate from HS, what do you plan to do? Go to college, and major in Business Economics.

What are your interests? Music, traveling, some wrestling, and just hanging out meeting new people.

Where do you live now? In Georgia.

Do you want to work in Canada or just go to university here? The answer would be quite different depending on your answer. If you want to immigrate permanently, are you eligible to do so? It's not an easy thing to do.

In my opinion, the best city to go to school in is Montreal, and the best city for a guy like you to go to work in that field in would be Toronto.

Whatever you do, don't come to Toronto. You will regret it.

About women and nightlife, you might want to check these out:
WHY are toronto women so reserved and flaky?!
What's the matter with Toronto? Seriously...

If you have the time (and really, if you are thinking of moving somewhere you should find the time to investigate your options before making a decision), read through both of those. I mean read every post in both threads.


Of the places you listed I would try Vancouver.


Again, whatever you do, don't come to Toronto.









Finally, don't come to Toronto.

If you are attending University, you will be surrounded by people your age from all over the place so I don't think you will have trouble making friends or meeting women in any of those cities.
You need to find out what school offers the best program for what you want and which schools will accept you and go from there.

All those cities have something to offer. As mentioned, Toronto is top for jobs in the business/financial sector.

Finally, don't listen to the above poster...people can have bad experiences in any city.

Yes, I've use this wizard here: Come to Canada
it says I'm eligible to come and work without a permit based on the field of work I plan on pursuing, Business Economics.

But, I plan on coming in 2014 visiting and looking for a job. I plan to stay at least 4 months, with around $10,000 - $12,000 with me. After that, I'll probably get a job working as a Genius for Apple.

What were your experiences with the city, why do you dislike it so much?

Those post seem to set the feeling that the girls are mostly taken on good looking guys. On where I'm from (Georgia) I've been told multiple times I'm a good looking guy, but IDK how it's works personally up there. Based on the pic, would I have a chance.

Go through my past posts to get an idea of why I don't like it much. (You will also find other links I have like the two I posted above.)

Also check out the two threads I posted, especially the Roosh one.

Based on that pic, yes, I think you would struggle here with women.

Don't even think of going anywhere else EXCEPT Montreal for school. It is literally one of the best cities for student life in North America. If you become fluent in French, stay. If not, consider TO or Van City for work.
