The mindset about dating here must change if Singapore wants to see more people get hitched ("Getting more Singaporean singles to date 'Gangnam style' "; Thursday).
We must do all we can to destigmatise dating agencies or other external help for singles to get to know other people.
I applaud the initiative taken by Senior Minister of State Josephine Teo, who was reported to be on a visit to South Korea and Denmark to study how each country encourages marriage and parenthood.
Successful dating should not be left to chance. Not everyone is lucky enough to find a life partner while studying, or at the work place or at social events.
Many Singaporeans are usually too busy building a career and may not have time to socialise.
It may take a while, but Singaporeans will warm to the idea of organised dating if it is done tastefully.
But it is important to remember: Time and tide wait for no man.
