SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST - Aug 24 - In many Asian cities, where the cost of living is high and careers often come first, it's hard for people to find a partner. In Singapore, men and even some women are choosing to rent a date instead of looking for long-term love. Maybe.sg provides male and female dates, with its prices ranging from S$80 ($58) to S$380 ($274) for a minimum of two hours. SG VIP Escorts was set up in 2017. The company's rates range from S$600 ($430) to S$1,400 ($1000) for an hour, and can go up to S$10,000 ($7200) for "special events", such as public events lasting four hours.
