Asian dating group Lunch Actually has just launched a new personality-based matchmaking product for Asia called esync.
The dating app, which is now available on iOS and Android, uses a personality quiz based on 16 areas of compatibility.
Lunch Actually calls esync a “hybrid” dating product, because it combines mobile dating and offline services generally attributed to the world of matchmaking.
With a tagline of “genuine connections start offline”, the app asks singles to undergo the personality quiz, then matches them with compatible users.
It also shows you how you both answered to “pre-selected” questions, such as “Your partner suggests you go and get drunk together. What would you say?”, or “Do you love watching football?”
The dating product also offers users in-house dating consultants, who can arrange and plan your date for you.
And with the launch of the product, the company released a new study asking singles in Singapore about their dating expectations and past online dating experiences.
The survey found that 63% of singles had not gone on one date in the past month, despite using multiple dating apps, and 71% had come across fake profiles.
Speaking about the product’s release, Lunch Actually founder and esync CEO Violet Lim said: “48% of singles agree it was most important to them to feel safe and secure while using online dating platforms and apps. More online dating providers in the market can do more to ensure better dating experience for these singles.
“Our online dating platforms like esync and LunchClick are strict in maintaining a database of verified and serious singles – our dating consultants manually screen each user’s IC for marital check, and also verify their profiles based on education and income.”
