We’ve had this argument before. All of us have got friends who are picky about the people they date, but it’s hard to tell if this pickiness is more prominent in men or women. Thanks to Paktor, we’ve got data to support that women are indeed more picky than men when it comes to love, along with many other insightful information.

All this data comes from the Paktor Singapore Dating Survey, which includes 2,800 of their Singapore users with an almost equal proportion of women (51%) and men (49%). It took place from July to August this year, touching on topics like interracial and cross cultural dating, as well as if age, height, and dating history really matters that much.

“This is an interesting piece of information for us. The multicultural and globalised nature of Singapore has positively shaped the perception of dating someone from a different background. This information also validated our observation on how Paktor’s translate chat feature is getting more popular in 2015 relative to last year, as more users switch on translate feature to chat with matches across borders and nationality,” Paktor CEO and co-founder, Joseph Phua, said.

Here’s what the data reveals. Let us know if you agree with the statistics!
