What Do Singaporeans Think About Dating Apps?

Have you ever wondered what Singaporeans really think about Tinder? Some guys think that it’s easy to get a date online by using the Tinder application. However, the truth is that most Singaporean girls do not like using it.

In fact, many people are moving away from online dating apps, and sometimes even going back to using a traditional matchmaker or dating agency.

There are several reasons behind this. When it comes to Western places like Australia or especially United States of America, girls there are not culturally conservative, and are very open to using online applications to find dates. Somehow, it is perfectly legal but there is still a taboo behind online dating in Singapore, and probably will last for the next few decades. Singaporean girls are embarrassed to admit that they met their significant other online.

Yes, while it is true that there are an increasing amount of girls who use dating applications such as Tinder, there are usually 2 key problems which may happen.

If you are an older man, you may not get any matches

First of all, if you are an older and wealthier man, you probably won’t hear much from the girls despite your attractiveness. This is because most girls on superficial dating applications such as Tinder and Paktor select the ages within 5 to 10 years of their age. Normal dating apps like this wouldn’t suffice, not even for a short term relationship. They will not even see your profile.

It is looks based. If you don’t look like a superstar, you will have a hard time.

Second of all, it is very looks based. It almost does not matter how funny you are and how rich you are. Apps like Tinder only gets you girls easily if you look like a male Korean superstar. Face and body is so important to girls on that app. Most girls do not even bother reading the profile you write, so if you are older and richer but not younger and super handsome and in shape, then you will not have much success.

Therefore, if you try to use it to get girls, you won’t have much success – at least perhaps, not in the way you may think you will experience. This is because you may even get matched up many times, but the girls will not meet you in real life – which makes the app useless.

Don’t believe me? No problem. Just watch the following video by The Smart Local and judge the interviews for yourself!

Actually, this is the reason why most locals and expatriates in Singapore prefer turning to either escort agency sites for short term relationships and usually date for real/seriously with work place relationships or through mutual friends.

If you do not yet intend to get married, just pay to date a social escort. They are legal to use if you read this post and do your own research before you proceed. Additionally, just make sure to read my reviews of Singapore social escorts here first. Just look for escorts for companionship, do not go to them looking for sexual services and you will definitely be fine. If you are intending to get married, meeting someone through a gathering of people with similar interests will be good. That is my dating advice for you.
