Lim mentions a Lunch Actually study of 700 singles, which revealed that 36% of men asked easily lost interest in the women they had met online before meeting with them in person.
Lim said: “Because of the abundance of matches, dates are now seen as commodities.
I’d previously ruled it out as too sad or desperate.
CEO and co-founder of Lunch Actually Violet Lim recently spoke to The Middle Ground about the platform, the dating market in Singapore and how players such as Tinder and Happn have impacted on the company.
This allows you to get to know your match more easily, rather than having to kill your brain cells thinking of good conversation topics.
In the interview, Lim explains that competition within the dating market is a good thing, as it gives the company the chance to “evolve” and offers singles more opportunity to meet someone online.
She also speaks about user behaviour, saying that people often judge potential dates based on their online personas, rather than their offline personalities.
There’s even a running joke about the fact that I’ve dated THREE childhood friends of one of my law school classmates.
And don’t get me started on meeting a potential husband in a bar.
