An interesting phenomenon I have noticed is that there are many men in Singapore who are increasingly using social escorts or sugar babies.
In fact, recently, I also came across an article on SCMP about all these girlfriend experience or rent a date services. This further spurred me on to write this post.
Personally, if you want to skip to the conclusion – I am a fan of social escorts. However, it is true that other variations of compensated dating is also becoming popular on their own rights in Singapore, so I shall talk briefly about all of them below.
Compensated dating – social escorts or sugar babies or platonic rent a friend services
For the uninitiated, compensated dating is basically a form of dating where your partner goes out with you because you paid the girl.
There are various forms of it, some legal, and we will only discuss those on our website.
1. Social escorts
The most common, oldest and well established area of compensated dating in Singapore, social escorts are usually beautiful Singaporean girls who will accompany you for a high sum of money. They are basically your girlfriend for the hour, hours or even a day.
They can be engaged for an occasion, a private date, or simply as a companion.
The biggest difference between social escorts and rent a friend is that rent a friend is purely platonic. Social escorts are not platonic – at least the good ones. The good social escorts provide what is known as the girlfriend experience.

2. Sugar babies
While escorts are essentially just short term sugar babies, sugar babies are slightly more controversial in the news in Singapore nowadays simply because it is just less established and deep rooted.
Sugar babies are basically what some call – a kept girl. So they are basically a girlfriend with no strings attached, just that a monthly financial commitment is required to upkeep the relationship.
If you have lots of free time, and desire a longer term relationship than a social escort, then sugar babies can be a better choice for you. Unfortunately for me, I am always busy so this is not the ideal option for me.
3. Rent a friend
This is the platonic option, and slightly different from social escorts and sugar babies.
Rent a friend prevents even non sexual physical contact, even hand holding. This can be seen as way too extreme for many people, and it turns me off as well. However, it can possibly be a great option if you just need more people at an event to liven it up. See them as a form of rent a crowd for a small event type of services. They are literally rent a friend, versus rent a girlfriend which is the case for social escorts and sugar babies.
Something different is that rent a friend services usually include males as service providers as well. However, social escorts and sugar babies are almost exclusively females only. So ladies looking for compensated dating, here is your place.
Do I see users of compensated dating as losers which some love to call?
Not true at all. They are usually simply successful men who do not have time to date the conventional way!
