SINGAPORE - Despite interracial marriages being on the rise here, most Singaporeans still prefer dating within their own race, data from a major dating agency here has shown.
Last year, 20.9 per cent of marriages registered here involved couples of different races, up from 20.7 per cent in 2012.
Ms Lim hopes to use the data to understand her clientele better and to help them manage their expectations.
"People are wired to look for certain things in their ideal partners," she said.
But of the almost 1,000 Singaporean members of dating agency Lunch Actually, 92.5 per cent would rather not date people of other ethnicities.
