Forum dating singapore
Whether you relocated on your own or you’ve been unintentionally thrown into the singles scene through the breakdown of a relationship, dating in an unfamiliar country can be both exciting and daunting.
We spoke to two expat ladies who are discovering just what Singapore has to offer for singles, and asked them to impart any tips they had on playing the dating game here.
If, like me, you don’t want anything serious, there are plenty of options for meeting people.
Susan: The Screening Room rooftop bar is good during the week; and it’s not crowded, in case you’re anxious about seeing people you might know. Penny: I’m originally from Sydney, where there are plenty of available men.
When it comes to meeting them in person, don’t set your expectations too high, and go with an open mind.Having come from a long-term relationship, I had no clue what I was doing and I found it all very cringe-worthy, but you just have to accept that this is the dating world that we live in now. Susan: I haven’t discovered the worst thing yet – I’m still having fun; however, my single girlfriends often complain that most men come here with their partners, or that it’s very hard to find someone who lives here and isn’t just stopping by on business.The best thing is that, if you’re looking for fun, Singapore has great nightlife, with some very attractive professional men!I’ve had some interesting matches on Tinder, where guys wanted to know if I was into bondage, or they were married and here on work, and wanting to hook up!I also met a guy on Tinder who was here on holiday; three months down the track, we’re still talking and have seen each a few times, but he doesn’t live here, so the long distance thing is tough.
It also depends on what you want; it can be very transient – people come and go from Singapore.
