While most Singaporeans still prefer to date good-lookers (who doesn't?), they aren't as conservative as they are often thought to be when it comes to other aspects of dating. This is based on a recent survey of over 2,800 locals by Paktor, South-east Asia’s leading social networking and dating app.
Globalisation and the embracing of new dating methods have paved the way for a more open-minded dater, with a majority of Singapore Paktor users willing to date someone of a different race, nationality and religion. Here are other results that emerged from the survey:
Good looks get the most right swipes on Paktor
From the data gathered, Paktor revealed that majority of Singapore users stripped down to their most superficial qualities when looking for a partner. The top three turn-offs (besides personal hygiene) as advised by the 1,394 Singapore male users polled included materialism (65.6%), high expectations of a partner (44.0%), and too much makeup (41.7%).
Women are the pickier lot
The Paktor Dating Survey also revealed interesting nuggets on the dating boundaries that both men and women were willing to accept. More than half of the female Paktor users surveyed were willing to date younger men, while almost three-quarters of male Paktor users were open to dating older, as well as taller women.
