Singapore singles and dating club
Penny*, in her early 40s, found herself single again after ten years of marriage.“I moved to Singapore five years ago with my husband, but after ten years of marriage he decided that being married wasn’t what he wanted.It probably couldn’t have been a more perfect match – she was attractive, incredibly enthusiastic about her work, well- traveled, easy to talk to, and had a very kind heart.
I was fairly hesitant about joining a dating service as it had been so long since I had gone on a proper date, but Society W made my first introduction incredibly easy with a relaxed and informal meet-up.
A friend once said, 'you're content with the love you already have from your family.''' MS WEE LE FONG, 40 The main reason for delaying marriage is "competing life goals", she says, such as a prolonged period in formal education and career. In the Marriage and Parenthood Study 2012, a survey commissioned by the National Population and Talent Division, 83 per cent of single respondents indicated that they wanted to get married.
She adds: "When you're older, you're also more likely to know what you want and less likely to compromise." The median age for first-time grooms in Singapore rose from 29.1 years in 2003 to 30.2 years in 2013. If so many people want to put a ring on it, why is it not happening?
The number of singles also rose across all ages surveyed, but the sharpest spike was in the 50s age group.
The number rose from 43,100 to 75,600 between 20 - or a jump of 75 per cent.A pioneer in online dating Being one of the first among my friends to try online dating, I felt like a trailblazer!
