Business analyst Matthew Oh, 27, is single and looking for the woman of his dreams.
He has done things the old-fashioned way: asking friends to set him up, asking colleagues out and striking up conversations with strangers in bars.
New app developers, notably led by women, have kept these issues in mind when creating niche apps that move away from Tinder's cast- your-net-wide style, hook-up- friendly model.
Instead, they emphasise security and are more attentive to the needs of female users.
The app is so ubiquitous that "to swipe right" - which is the way you select a profile of a person you like on Tinder - has entered common parlance to generally mean that you approve of something.
Mr Oh, who has gone on more than 10 dates in the past eight months, says: "Sometimes, a conversation on Tinder doesn't go anywhere, but does that really matter when there's always someone else to talk to?
"When you have quantity, you can take your time to find quality." With the number of single millennials on the rise here, it is not surprising that dating apps have taken off in the past year.
Ms Dawoon Kang, 32, a co-founder of the app, which is reported to have 21 million users in the US alone, says: "We realised that career-focused women don't have time for bulls*** and want quality over quantity.Ms Lim, 36, says: "Dating apps have low barriers to entry, so safety was our priority.By taking away the chat function, we can cut out conversations that don't go anywhere and prevent scammers from using the app." Home-grown dating app Blindfold takes security a step further by making each profile anonymous with blurred-out profile pictures.Launched in 2013, it has more than 700,000 profiles of users in Singapore and more than seven million users across seven markets in Asia.IT technician Leonard Whang, 28, who, like many of his peers, uses dating apps such as Tinder and Paktor, says the apps help people overcome the fear of rejection that comes with asking someone out face to face.
