DATING OFFLINEAt Gai Gai - the matchmaking arm of homegrown dating app Paktor that offers both event-based and one-on-one private dates - the mean age of a member is between 30 and 31, said co-founder Alex Tam. In fact, the offline arm was set up two years ago to meet user demands that Paktor - despite its rising popularity - was struggling to meet.“We noticed there were some Paktor users who have not been very successful.There are those who can’t seem to find a match or convert matches into dates, and there are some who are too busy to swipe through profiles …so we thought maybe we could curate this process for these groups of people and turn it into actual dates,” said Mr Tam.Gai Gai, which means “going out” in Cantonese, now has a member base of 12,000 people, making it one of the biggest dating agencies locally.At least for these events, you get to meet people who most likely have the same interests or hobbies as you and if you don’t manage to meet anyone, you can still have fun,” she told Channel News Asia.WOOING TECHNOLOGY: YAY OR NAYBut even so, Ms Syn admits to feeling “jaded” from the dating events and has recently signed up with mobile-based app Coffee Meets Bagel, where she has had a few dates with “more like-minded individuals”.Dating apps may have become an increasingly attractive platform for singles, but the idea of joining a dating agency and enlisting a professional matchmaker to help find that special someone still strikes a chord with some in Singapore.

It can be tiring and disappointing if you don’t meet someone …Instead of coming in with the idea of finding a life partner, come to make friends,” Mr Tam added.Complete Me, which has made its name in organising speed-dating events for the past seven years, has also introduced board gaming, karaoke and most recently, volunteering sessions to its mix.But as thoughts of leaving the singles club emerged, the 33-year-old nurse realised that a dwindling social circle stood in his way.Having spent “little time and effort on dating in the past”, the Singaporean decided it was time to change things.
