Singapore dating website reviews
Mr Ng Jing Shen, chief executive officer of Paktor Group, said that based on observations from the Paktor app, guys spend less than a second deciding on matches online while girls spend five to 10 times longer.
A NEW PLACE TO FIND LOVE Most dating apps are free, unlike speed dating or matchmaking services, which would require users to fork out anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars in search of the perfect one.
Singapore Management University (SMU) Associate Professor of Psychology Norman Li, whose research interests include mate preferences and mate value, said relationships could become "shorter and much less stable", given the limitless choice the app opens users up to.
Apart from Ms Peh and her husband, Mr Jason Ye, 29 and Ms Seah Ling Ling, 28, got attached in March 2017, within a month of connecting with each other on the app Coffee Meets Bagel (CMB).
“All the good and bad, you compress it into two, three years because we meet so often.”Dating apps, from the likes of Tinder, CMB, Ok Cupid — which are all based in the United States — to homegrown outfits such as Paktor, have radically changed romance and the way singles date.
With their speedy account set-ups and “swipe to like” interface, coupled with “secret recipes” — the algorithms which match different users — finding a potential date has become much faster and efficient as well as more convenient than ever before.
Currently, Mr Ng said the app has an average of about 60,000 matches a month.Exactly a year later, Mr Ye got down on one knee, and the pair will get hitched this October.He said:“It allows two people with very similar intentions to meet, so that helps to accelerate the process,” he added.Among them was Mr Andrew Chia, a bank analyst and part-time swim coach who was about a decade older than her.Less than two years later, the pair got married in 2016 and they just had their first child earlier this month.“Yes, it is actually quite fast,” she said, “The app definitely helps to shorten the process in choosing the right one, because you are able to filter through potential matches and suss out who is likely to have the traits you are looking for.”Ms Peh's experience reflects just how much the dating scene has been changed by apps designed for those who are looking for love or companionship.
This new phenomenon may be welcome news for a society grappling with falling birth rates and late marriages.
