CHANNEL NEWS ASIA - June 24 - A regional dating survey of singles in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong has found that Singaporeans are the most open to the idea of online matchmaking and dating. 85% of 630 singles in Singapore polled were willing to try an online matchmaking agency. 41% have used online dating compared to 26% last year. Violet Lim, founding director, Lunch Actually, said: “In the past, when we did a similar survey online dating did not rank so high". The company has launched eSynchrony, a personality-based matchmaking platform that seeks to integrate online and "offline" dating. “The key difference to eSynchrony compared to other personality tests platforms out there is that we actually arrange the dates. This is a good compromise to dating between online and offline and encourage more singles to be pro-active to go out there and find love", said Violet.
