In my previous post, I talked about how men above 45 face dating problems in Singapore, but I have seemingly found an age old solution, and that is
matchmaking services for singles. However, there seems to be a social stigma attached to these matchmaking and dating agencies in Singapore, but if we were to actually look past that, I believe they may potentially be a god sent gift for men like us! Here is why I think that.
After doing my independent research online, I realized that most Singaporean men who apply to matchmaking agencies are actually in their late 30s or early 40s. This means that my demographic and age group would be right up their alley, as they are experienced in matching people like me up.
Second of all, at my age, I do not have time to play any kind of games with these girls. I just want to find someone suitable to settle down with and start a family. Since not everyone dates and go about dating with marriage as a potential end goal result, it may be more worthwhile with regards to my time to just use an external third party matchmaking agency to help me deal with this instead.
Most women who are out in the clubs and about are not looking for a man in his forties. Neither are they open to dating such a man. However, female clients at matchmaking agencies are often far more open, and some even actively look for a man who is more mature due to the potentially higher financially security that he will be able to provide for his woman as opposed to a younger guy in his mid to late 20s, all else being equal.
There are some companies in Singapore which slant more towards a dating events company. These are basically companies which arrange for mass speed dating and more. I personally have been to some of these, and while it is much cheaper, I find it pretty much useless. In my above examples, I am referring to good old matchmaking by traditional matchmakers, who provide one to one dating services for single men and women. In my personal opinion, they work great for people my age! I signed up just a few months ago with one (sorry my memory is getting older and forgetful, but I will add in their name here when I remember it) and so far so good, met two suitable ones so far and things may be kicking off with one of them so far!
