Dating 💑💏 Preferences

This survey 📌📋✅ has shown that ladies 👭👭 choose physical appearance (height, body type, teeth, skin color) as the most important criteria when they decide whether to meet their match offline 👫

LA5.JPG

While texting 📳 etiquette is more important for ladies👭👭, men👬👬 are more focused on the dating💑💏profiles of the ladies👭👭

However, an exception can be seen in Malaysian singles 🇲🇾👭👬 who do not rank physical appearance as the most important criteria. On the opposite spectrum, 45% of single men 👬👬 in Hong Kong 🇭🇰 place this as the most important

However, once you get past the online dating 👨🏻‍💻👩🏻‍💻💑💏 funnel & you meet in real life for the 1️⃣st time, the top 3️⃣ turn-offs are not about how you look at all. These are the top 3️⃣ turn-offs 🙃 when it comes to 1️⃣st dates: Their manner (how they treat you & the service staff) (67%), being -ve (50%) & lack of interest (48%). These are the same results for both men 👬👬 & women👭👭, across all countries🌏

This is especially true for Singaporean females 🇸🇬 👭👭 where 49% of those not actively looking for a partner as they enjoy being single 👭👬

Based on the survey results 📈📊📑, many singles 👭👬 are actively looking & swiping online. Interestingly, they are not interested in investing much time/ effort in preparing their profile but they expect others to as many of them spend time reading 📖 the profiles,” Ms. Violet shared 👩🏻‍💼

The boats 🛶🛶 are steered manually by a boatman 👨🏽👨🏽 during the cruising 🛶 There is another venue for fireflies cruising 🛶 named Bukit Belimbing where electronic boats 🚤 are being used

She 👩🏻 was told the fireflies are more impressive 🤩🤩 if it hasn’t rained 🌧☔️ shortly before & if it is not a full moon 🌕 night 🌃

Basic firefly-watching 👀 etiquette includes,

  • Do not use your torch 🔦 / use flash 📸 to capture photos/ videos 📹🎥 during the fireflies cruising 🛶 as this will disturb & disrupt the fireflies’ mating
