Many Singaporeans love ‘face’, so they may view things as using a dating agency or matchmaker as embarrassing, and thus not go to them even if they have dating troubles without external help. To prove that, Singapore has been seeing a declining rate of marriage since 2013. It is one thing when they want to remain single. It’s another altogether when they do not want to be single, and want to find the right person but are unable to enter a love relationship. Should Singaporeans who want to enter a good love relationship seek a matchmaking or dating agency in Singapore? For those who are unaware, not all agencies are actually matchmakers. Give this a read if you want a deeper explanation of the different types of companies in SG. For the purpose of our discussion, we are only referring to traditional matchmakers – meaning people who get your details and then manually match you up to someone who fulfils your criteria.
Gender and age has a big part to play in your ultimate decision as to whether you should look for a dating agency.
Firstly, gender may have a part to play in your ultimate decision. if you are in your 20s, and you are a guy, you should probably just go to your office or clubs or whatnot to pick up women. This is because even if you are in your 30s or 40s, you can still use a matchmaker to find a match relatively easily as long as you have a stable career in Singapore, and are mature in thinking. If you are a Singaporean girl in your late twenties, you want to start thinking about finding a professional. The reason for this is because it is far easier to find a match when you are still in your late 20s, versus when you are in your 30s if you want to look for a long term relationship and a potential husband.
Secondly, age also has a part to play. For instance, if you are in your 20s, most normal dating methods will probably still work to a relatively large extent for you in Singapore. However, as you get into your late 30s or 40s, regardless of your gender, it will get exponentially harder to see any kind of dating success. The reason for this is simply because most eligible bachelors may already think that you are at least attached, or perhaps even married and hence not even react to any moves you make, nor take any relationship initiatives. If you are in your 30s or 40s, it is probably an ideal time to look and use a matchmaker’s dating services!
