September 30, 2019
There was a time when meeting potential partners only happened either at work, at a nightclub or by leaving a lonely hearts advert in your local newspaper, but in recent years, with the development of technology, things are very very different in the dating world.
In 2019, we live in a digital age and with a myriad of new ways for Hong Kong singles to meet that special person, it can be difficult to know which one to choose. With that in mind, we’ve put this blog together to highlight the pros and cons of each one, so that you can get a clearer picture of which of those available is the perfect one for you.
On the surface, dating apps that can be easily downloaded onto a smartphone look like they’re a fantastically convenient way to meet someone and sometimes, they can be. For the uninitiated, essentially what happens is that you download an app – usually for free – and you sign up to be a member. This allows you to browse through otherHong Kong singles at your leisure and it’s where you get to swipe left (with your finger on the screen) for those you don’t like or swipe right for someone you take a fancy to.
The downside of dating apps is that they tend to be used by people who want to have a good time and aren’t up for anything serious. So, if you’re looking for that ‘forever partner’ in your life, you’re unlikely to find them there. That’s not to say you won’t find someone special on dating apps, but there’s a more than average chance that you’ll just meet people that are physically attracted to you, rather than what you get with proper matchmaking services.
It wasn’t too long ago that if you told someone you’d met someone online, you’d get a funny look, however, in the present day, that stigma no longer exists, making it a viable option for Hong Kong singles looking for love. Perform just a cursory search on the web for online dating and you’ll be met with a long list of websites all telling you that theirs is the place to go to find someone special and like dating apps, they have their pros and their cons.
Statistics show that almost 40% of those on the Hong Kong dating scene have tried online dating at some point, but whilst you’re certain to see lots of potential matches on any site you sign up to, you’ll find a lot of profiles are not real or that have been created using false pictures. This means that finding someone you might be compatible with can be extremely hit and miss and very time-consuming.
Another issue for Hong Kong singles trying out online dating is that it’s virtually impossible to guarantee anything about the person you’re talking with or are potentially meeting up with. So, this means that you might turn up wearing the proverbial white carnation for identification purposes and you could end up meeting someone who’s nothing like they described themselves or even worse, they could be a dating scammer out to rip you off!
Going Out to Clubs
You could, of course, try out some traditional forms of Hong Kong dating by heading out on the town in an attempt to meet someone, but whilst this is an option, it’s not for everyone. You might have a great time while you’re out, sure, but do you really want the first time you meet someone to be when you’re half-drunk? Also, there’s the aspect of cost, as anyone who’s been for a night out will tell you that it can leave a rather large hole in your wallet or purse.
Going out to meet someone can be really difficult and although you might meet someone during the night, what are the chances that they’re ‘the one’ or at least someone who’s compatible with you? The answer is…not high. Also, it can also be quite intimidating meeting someone in a club, especially as it’s difficult to hear what anyone’s saying above the music.
As a place to cut a rug and let your hair down, nightclubs are perfect. As a place for Hong Kong singles to meet…not so great.
The last entry on our list is matchmaking agencies, which represent the surest way of meeting someone on the Hong Kong dating scene. That’s because rather than being an impersonal method of introduction, it does what it says on the tin…it matches you to people who you’re like to have that zing with!
