When our agent told them we run a dating service, the landlord said, "Okay, I think their business is too ‘advanced’."Bharati: What did they really mean? They didn't go so far, but they were just not very comfortable with us being on the same premises as the rest of their tenants. Some people were more open-minded and we showed them that we were professionals. The salesperson told us that we could put in an ad, but not multiple insertions. So it went out and the next day, we had a lot of calls from singles, but also a lot from other advertisers who asked us to advertise with them as well.Lim: The rest of their tenants were lawyers, bankers and management consultants.

The newspapers said they were worried that people will complain because at that point, there wasn’t any service like this and I guess maybe at the back of their mind they were not very sure it was about. But fortunately for us, there was a newspaper that actually took the risk.
You actually have to write a legal letter to tell each other that.
Going to court and just seeing how people get divorced made me think it’s actually quite similar to getting married.
