Tired of a barren love life? There are newcomers in the Singapore dating scene — you can now rent your ‘ideal’ date with this new service, and it’s gaining traction.
We know about online dating, but it surely isn’t what it used to be. Figuring out if your match is serious about a relationship or just in for the fun — it’s a blind guess half the time.
Meet Maybe, where you can go on a date with any of its thirty-two ladies and four gentlemen (at present) — for a fee.
Not that it’s got to be a date date — if you need to even the numbers for a friends night out or a companion for your golf sesh, this can be for you too.
Seeking paid companionship isn’t unheard of, but it’s not exactly the most conventional option in our country. We had a chat with the team behind Maybe to find out more about its service.
AM: How does Maybe fit into Singapore’s dating landscape?
Maybe (MB): Singaporeans are very busy with their careers, so they want the experience of a relationship but without the complexity. Maybe lets you date anyone of your preference — regardless of age, looks and hobbies — no strings attached.
We have a diverse clientele too. An older woman can seek the company of a younger man and vice versa. We had a student who booked a date with an older woman, while another client was a divorcee in his 50s who wanted a younger, female companion.
