New marketplace platform, Date Out, has officially launched to refresh the face of dating and socialising!

Offering a curated selection of date activities and unique gift ideas for couples, the mobile app was conceived by co-founders, Esther Khong and Ang Wei Yi, both busy finance professionals, who found that many working adults were too overwhelmed by heavy commitments at work to identify innovative date ideas for them and their partners. This in turn often led to negative impacts on the quality of their relationships.

Esther shared, “We wanted to offer a distinctive and innovative solution for a problem that’s very common, but seldom addressed. Research shows that Singaporeans work an average of 45 paid hours a week, a figure higher than even Japan or South Korea, so it’s no surprise that date planning often takes a back seat.”

This is why Date Out currently offers five categories of experiences, spanning across Dating Ideas and Customised Gifts to simplify and streamline the process. The app also works with vendors, such as AJ Hackett, KF1 Cart, To Be Calm, Uppercut Boxing, and Longue Vue Design, to provide couples with a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

Co-founder Wei Yi added, “As the dating app industry for singles booms, what many people have failed to actually think about is what happens after a match is made. Date Out cuts through the noise by helping you to not just expand your network, but to build on existing relationships with your friends and loved ones.”

The Date Out Experiences

Date Out currently offers five categories of experiences, spanning across Dating Ideas and Customised Gifts, to meet users’ various preferences.

While Date Out is primarily targeted at couples, the app can also cater to friends who are looking for unique activities to do in Singapore. With vendors such as Wanderlust Adventures, SG Aviation Academy, The Fragment Room, Sandbox VR Experience and Oh Glorious Day onboard, Date Out is refreshing the face of dating and socialising, enabling users to select from a variety of unique experiences, including everything from perfume and leather craft workshops, to personalised clay-making and pottery sessions.

Date Out also offers specialised concierge services which will enable users to customise their gifts, ensuring that recipients obtain truly distinctive mementos. Date Out also offers a comprehensive reward system, where regular users can accumulate points and redeem them for special moments, such as tickets and curated events.

Date Out is available for download on iTunes and Google Play, as well as online.
