But attitudes are hard to change: There is still a lingering sense of embarrassment and conservativism about putting oneself out there, especially for older people in the dating pool here.

"There were men who didn't want to give their real names or say what they did for a living.The friends have less time to hang out and have fewer new friends to recommend as possible matches. We tend to get 'more single'." There have always been more women than men in her life.She was from a girls' school and mostly socialised with the same group of friends through secondary school, junior college and university.
Ms Anisa Hassan, managing director of It's Just Lunch Asia, which matchmakes professionals over a meal, says: "In the past, people who were married before might have felt that the best years are behind them.By all accounts, dating culture should be burgeoning in Singapore with the growth of online dating and dating apps such as Tinder.Moreover, dating agencies in Singapore have also seen a rise in demand from older singles - as well as interest from divorcees and widows.One criterion for her partner is that his salary should be similar to hers, that is, at least ,000 a month, an amount she says is "realistic" for someone in his mid- to late-40s.He should also be pleasant looking and have good values.
