Singaporean App LunchClick Encourages Offline Dating


The Lunch Actually Group have announced the launch of new dating app LunchClick, which encourages singles to stop swiping and start meeting offline.

LunchClick provides users with one match at noon each day — the matched pair have 24 hours to accept the match, and if accepted, they can interact with each other through a question and answer session.

Every user is certified through Facebook, and Singaporean users are required to input their NRIC to verify their marital status.

The app also provides a “propose-a-date” option, where users can search through a list of nearby restaurants and bars to pick the perfect date.

LunchClick’s “Datebook” feature organises pending and upcoming dates, and users will be auto-reminded twice (24 hours and two hours prior) before an impending date.


Violet Lim, LunchClick’s founder and CEO, has over 10 years of experience in the dating industry — co-founding matchmaking platforms Lunch Actually and eSynchrony.

Lim said: “We didn’t want to come up with a Tinder clone, we wanted to see what was really missing in the dating app landscape.”

While the app itself is free, users have the option to hire a personal “Love Assistant,” a LunchClick dating expert who will handpick matches and provide in-depth profile analysis.

This $73 feature guarantees users with at least one offline date, or a full refund will be provided.

LunchClick is available to download in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. For more information, check out the LunchClick website.
