Goodluck Friends Centre dating agencies in singapore (Not in ranking order)
*** In the game of dating, speed dating and set up dates have been taboo for the longest time. I remember recovering from my first break up by plunging myself straight into the dating world and getting myself unwanted attention – having my good guy friend professing his feelings for me was a case of #sorrynotsorry, but I was not interested at all.
The number of singles also rose across all ages surveyed, but the sharpest spike was in the 50s age group.
The number rose from 43,100 to 75,600 between 20 - or a jump of 75 per cent.
The annual event is organised by MP Singapore Pte Ltd and is supported by the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) of Singapore, and e2i as the Employability Partner.
