Reviews Of Singapore’s Best Dating & Matchmaking Agencies

Here is a review of the best dating and matchmaking agencies in Singapore.

CompleteMe (completeme.com.sg)

A local Singapore company that specializes in speed dating events, Complete Me is more of an event organizer.

For those of you wondering why you should head on over to an event by CompleteMe instead of some free event on meetup.com, is that participants in events by CompleteMe will be verified to be legally single. This saves potential heartaches, and time wasting for those Singaporean singles who are truly marriage minded.

Additionally, a great benefit is that because they are a dating company that specializes in speed dating events, CompleteMe events will have an almost balanced gender ratio. This is important, because in most other free types of social networking events in Singapore, you will most definitely see a skewed ratio.

Peerage

Everyone has heard of Lunch Actually. But in my personal opinion, they started selling and cross selling all kinds of things that they seem to have lost their focus.

However in my opinion, they certainly did something right with a new company under their group – Peerage. At least, it is something that stood out. Their parent company just has apps, events, coaching, makeover programs and basically they seemed to have lost their focus from being a dating agency in Singapore.

However, Peerage is certainly unique. If you always wanted to meet a girl, without worrying whether she is a potential gold digger because you are a successful individual earning over $150,000 per annum, you are in luck.

If you are a Singaporean girl and are always worried about meeting a potentially deadbeat or less capable boyfriend or husband who is unable to at least match your success, you are in luck too!

Peerage is essentially a matchmaking agency in Singapore for guys and girls with an annual income of at least $150,000.


Here are also some upcoming but younger dating agencies which you definitely want to look into:

TRUE Matchmaking

A young company with a ‘back to history’ and ‘back to basics’ founding history. TRUE Matchmaking is essentially a dating company which seeks to go back to the roots of just selling matchmaking services. Many dating agencies in Singapore have started selling all sorts of packages and programs, instead of focusing on what their names suggest – matchmaking. Therefore, TRUE Matchmaking company was founded to combat this problem, and simply focus on helping Singaporean locals to find the love of their lives through matchmaking only.

As their name suggests, TRUE Matchmaking only specializes in matchmaking services in Singapore. So if you are sick and tired of trying to sign up with a local dating agency only to be upsold irrelevant and expensive packages, then you are in luck with them! Simple but great for those who want no frills back to basics matchmaking services of old.

Destini IS

A matchmaking agency with a unique concept, Destini IS is a company based in Singapore which seeks to match up Singaporean men with Japanese women only. If you are a Singaporean guy and always had dreams of wanting to end up with a Japanese woman, you are seriously in luck. While this sounds like something out of a fairytale, the founders of Destini IS decided to make this a reality.

Founded relatively recently just in 2018, this is definitely a company that you want to look at if you like Japanese women! Do note though, that you will likely be entering a long distance relationship, at least for the beginning part of your relationship. If you are able to deal with that, great! If not, do look elsewhere.

Sorry for the SG ladies though, this company is not for you.

How To Get A Girlfriend In Singapore – Almost Guaranteed Way

get a Singapore girlfriend

If you want to get a girlfriend in Singapore, then read this post. If you prefer a shortcut and having a middle man, then use a matchmaker like truematchmaking.com/.

Getting a girlfriend in Singapore is not necessarily complicated, it is actually very simple if and only if you know the necessary steps. Skip even just one of these steps and your chances of getting one exponentially increases.

Dress well and you will beat 99% of Singaporean men

First of all, dress decently. If you do not expect to fall in love or like a girl who dresses like a slob, then do not expect to attract girls if you dress like one too. It is mutual. In fact, for the men who like to dress casual, even when trying to pick up girls, think about this. If you are at home, you can wear your pyjamas. So why do you not wear pyjamas to your job or interviews? Why not? Because you put in effort to look good. If you are willing to put in effort into such stuff, why would you put in any less effort into dressing to get a girlfriend? You need every edge you can possibly have.

Get into shape – you want fit girls, so why won’t girls want a fit guy?

Second of all, this can be a tough one, but get into shape. You need not have six pack abs and chiselled arms to get a girlfriend. That is a lie. However, looking fit is definitely important. You do not want toothpick arms or a belly that plops over your trousers.

Some may argue – why should I do that, girls should love me for who I am, not how I look. To which I always reply, then why are you judging girls by how they look? It works the same both ways once again!

Do not be funny, do not be cool – be yourself

What I am referring to here is your personality and behavior. While you want to get into shape, and dress well, personality wise, you want to remain you.

Whether we like it or not, dating is a relatively superficial game. The opposite party has to at least find you eye-pleasing before giving you a chance. Therefore, dressing up and getting into shape is to simply get you to the front door. Now, you want to be you when it comes to interacting with the girl you like. You can try being someone else – however you will run into a problem playing that role forever. You want a girl to be interested enough in your looks, to want to know more about you. You then want her to fall in love with your personality. If you are a serious guy, you do not want to be funny with a girl. Because she is never going to be your girlfriend wants she finds out that is not your true personality anyway. Same goes for the contrary.

Matchmaker Versus Social Escort Agency – Are They The Same?

To some lay people in Singapore, it can feel that a matchmaker service and SG escort service are highly similar.

To add on to this confusion, rent-a-friend services and sugar dating websites popped up in recent years, and they all make these just even more confusing to the layman.

So are they the same or different?

There is a world of difference, and they are suitable for completely different purposes. Let us talk about that.

One is for a long term relationship, one is for a short term no strings attached one

First of all, a matchmaking dating agency in Singapore is one which attempts to match up clients of both genders to each other. While it may not always end in marriage, the purpose is to ideally match two people up who may then be able to start a long term relationship together. Both the guys and the girls are the clients and the agency simply serves as a middle man who qualifies the potential dates. A long term relationship is the end goal.

You may want to note that matchmakers simply find you whom you want, or someone as close to that as humanly possible. They are unable to make the girl you want your bride – or that will be known as mail order bride, not matchmaking, which is illegal in SG! So please do not ask matchmakers in Singapore weird questions related to mail order brides or arranged marriages.

However, a social escort agency simply provides (usually) a girl for companionship to a male client. The girls are working with the agency, and the guys are the clients. It is more of provision of a service. After the number of hours you have engaged the respective escort girl for, she will simply go off. She has no intention of keeping in contact with you, as she joined an escort agency for privacy reasons. This is purely for a short term, no strings attached relationship. Of course, for the best experience, always make sure to find Singaporean escorts who specialize in the girlfriend experience, GFE.

You may also want to note the following. Likewise, for female escort services, agencies can only legally arrange for companionship. Agencies are unable to legally arrange or facilitate for sexual services, or that will be known as pimping which is illegal in Singapore! So do not break local laws and try to solicit prostitution from escort agencies!

One is more ‘taboo’ than the other

While matchmaking can still make some people feel embarrassed in Singapore, it is relatively less taboo. Some people may feel embarrassed if they need to engage the services of a matchmaker to find their partner. However, matchmaking and even online dating applications are already becoming more of a norm in Singapore, where every professional is too busy working to date normally.

On the other hand, SG escort services can still be seen as very taboo in Singapore. While it can be perfectly legal to engage such social escorts in Singapore, conservative Asian cultures in Singapore can still make it seem very taboo.

What I Learnt From One Of Singapore’s Matchmaking Agencies

Are love and trust the only things required for a long term relationship?

Although love and trust is still important and fundamental for a long term relationship, it is undeniable that many local Singaporeans still look at a person’s earning capabilities before marrying.

So what does Rogers look at when it comes to requirements for male clients for his matchmaking dating agency?

Match making agency boss Rogers Tan can confirm on it – he has been operating a Singapore match making agency for around 20 years. During its founding around 1999, Rogers Tan received a large proportion of clients who belonged to the lower income group in Singapore. However, he quickly found it nearly impossible to arrange successful matches at all for these clients.

“Most of them were in their 30s, and some even 40s. When a local girl looks at a man, she definitely wants someone who’s earning more – especially because of their age.”

“Can we blame the girls? Not really. It is the unfortunate truth that Singapore is really expensive to live in no matter how we put it,” Rogers added.

Rogers decided after 3 to 4 years in the business that he needed to refocus on bringing in more high end guy clients to successfully grow his business.

Here is a similar story of a matchmaking agency which is also based in Singapore.

With this refocus and pivot of his business, Rogers was able to achieve more successful matches and happy ever afters for his clients.

Some of his new criteria for men were:

  • Have Diploma education at least
  • Earn at least $4,000 a month

While these requirements may feel materialistic, it is realistic to him.

While many men and even women chastise him for such requirements, when the question was flipped, the local women who provided such feedback were not able to accept these men anyway.

How about the women?

Rogers’ criteria is different when it comes to female clients. When it comes to the women, it is the age, a slim physique and decent looks that matters more.

However, one thing which is common is that the men also prefer a woman who has at least some form of education – at least O levels or a Diploma is also the requirement.

However, generally speaking according to Rogers, men and women look to different criteria when it comes to selecting a partner – both short and long term.
