Tinder Launches ‘School of Swipe’ to Help Young Adults in Singapore Navigate Online Dating

When it comes to building meaningful connections with new people, a majority of young singles in Singapore say they are hopeful and excited but can feel awkward and need advice, says Tinder.

Tinder is rolling out School of Swipe in Singapore, its first-ever crash course in online dating, tailored for young adult singles looking to navigate modern-day dating. According to the brand, when it comes to building meaningful connections with new people, a majority of young singles in Singapore say they are hopeful and excited but can feel awkward and need advice.

The School of Swipe “offers guidance on the online-to-offline dating journey and is a long-term initiative created by Tinder to help Singapore singletons build confidence as they seek out new connections.

Users will also be able to attend Tinder Mixers, a series of in-person events which will be held later in the coming months.

 
 

According to a recent conducted by Tinder, young people in Singapore most commonly feel “hopeful” (61%) and “excited” (56%) about their dating future, and yet, when it comes to obstacles standing in the way of them exploring new connections, around half (50%) of those interviewed say that they “feel awkward” or hesitate in making the first move.


 

 
 

Although over 75% of those surveyed say that they feel free to be themselves and choose the person they want to connect with on a dating app, about two-thirds find it difficult to start conversations with matches.

“We’ve learnt through our study and from our conversations with young people that when they are faced with questions about dating, they are not quite sure where to go or who to speak to. And that’s where Tinder, as the world’s largest dating app, comes in. With our newly launched School of Swipe™, an easy to navigate online guide for singletons to use anytime anywhere, we want to help young adult singles feel more confident in their dating journeys,” said Papri Dev, APAC Communications Lead at Tinder.

“School of Swipe is an all-in-one guide for daters looking to make the most of the matching experience whilst also staying alert, both online and offline. The resource complements Tinder’s continuous in-app feature innovations and tutorials to make dating fun and safe for all young singles eager to connect with someone new.”


The experts weigh in

“Dating is fun and meaningful but it can also sometimes be daunting. Having resources such as School of Swipe can help hopeful young Singaporeans navigate dating, taking the pressure off and giving them more mind space to focus on creating meaningful connections,” added Dr Angela Tan, intimacy coach and founder of the Academy of Relationship and Sex, Singapore.

Dr Anuradha Rao, cybersafety and cyber-wellness expert based in Singapore spoke on the importance of keeping in mind safety precautions, “Whether online or offline, meeting someone new is exciting and it can be easy to be swept away and forget that we still need to first take care of ourselves whilst engaging with others. School of Swipe’s safety tips remind us of the simple things we can all do to interact safely and still have fun.”
