Yayyyy! Today I unveil my 6 single and very eligible friends to you. Here are 3 guys and 3 girls I want to try to find a match for. Dating is a fun process, and there are so many possibilities... sometimes you've just got to take a chance and see what happens. 

Have a look at their photos and profiles and if you are  single and interested (or have a single friend you think would make a good match) just drop me an email hollyjean69@gmail.com by the 4th of Feb 2014.

1. Please include in the email subject: The Name of the Single you're interested to be matched with.
2. Your name, age, height & Occupation (or any additional details you wish to share)
3. A recent photo of yourself

Your email entries will NOT be made public or posted on blog (I promise!). On February 5th, I'll pick the most suitable match for each of my friends. I will then email the chosen matches. From there, you can chat/exchange numbers/date etc. Easy! No stress!

The dates will not be featured on my blog, so you have full privacy... however, should you choose share and update me, my readers would be thrilled to find out how it went. If you don't want anyone to know about it.. that's fine too :)

Height: 166cm
Occupation: Account Manager / Blogger

Do you like spontaneity or do you like routine?
Spontaneity as I like excitement in life. 

Do you prefer to wake up early or stay in bed till late in the morning?
I usually stay in bed till late but I would love to wake up early when I've things to do. Nothing beats a busy fulfilling day. 

Beach holiday or city holiday? Why?
This is difficult, I love the beach but there's only so much you can do at a beach. So I will say city holiday as there's so much more you can do. 

Would you rather be unattractive and rich or extremely attractive and poor?
I rather be attractive and poor as I'm able to be real and still work hard to be rich in future. 

Describe your dream house.
A cosy apartment with modern design. Actually, as long as I can have a walk in wardrobe/vanity room, I'm happy. 

Name a physical feature you get complimented on a lot.
My Eyes. 

What is the best advice you have ever received?
Always prepare for the worst, don't take things for granted. 

What would be a question you'd be afraid to tell the truth on?
To be honest, I don't know. But I've got nothing much to hide. :)

HOLLY SAYS: Joyce is a sweetheart. I got to know her through blogging events, and she has a very kind, friendly and warm personality. Very feminine and ladylike. The kind of girl who has no airs or arrogance about her. 
Age: 25
Height: 159cm
Occupation: Pre school teacher

Do you like spontaneity or do you like routine?
I like spontaneity. I always think I may have ADHD (kidding) but routines bore me and I prefer things that are random, never the same and do not follow a fixed routine.

Do you prefer to wake up early or stay in bed till late in the morning?
If I have no agenda for the day, I prefer lazing in bed. I find it therapeutic for me and any other last minute plans can take place thereafter. 

Beach holiday or city holiday? Why?
Beach please! Singapore is good/bad enough as a city and I do not want to go on a holiday that reminds me of home. 

Would you rather be unattractive and rich or extremely attractive and poor?
I would choose unattractive and rich. (Why? Ask me in person)

Describe your dream house.
Mid -sized apartment that is decorated with my favourite snaps of the people important to me and complete with a balcony that has my own gorgeous garden plus a mini swing placed there. A cute kitchen that allows me to have my baking tools (I’m a terrible cook but secret aspiring baker) and an island table for those midnight talks. 2-3 rooms that have murals significant to myself and anyone else staying with me along with that huge ass tv for those soccer matches please.

Name a physical feature you get complimented on a lot
My legs. For a fun sized person, I got fairly good legs. 

What is the best advice you have ever received?
Be yourself. At all times.

What would be a question you'd be afraid to tell the truth on?
On whether I have had my fair share of bedroom fun.

HOLLY SAYS: Shannon is a Facebook friend of mine. She comes across as someone with a very vibrant personality. Perhaps because she works with young kids everyday... she's bubbly, full of life and is not afraid to try new things.
Age: 29 
Height: 164cm
Occupation: Customer Service Consultant

Do you like spontaneity or do you like routine? 
Spontaneity!

Do you prefer to wake up early or stay in bed till late in the morning? 
If given a choice, I'll prefer to stay in bed till late in the morning... but I got to work.

Beach holiday or city holiday? Why? 
City holiday, coz I don't like to suntan and I love shopping.

Would you rather be unattractive and rich or extremely attractive and poor? 
I rather be extremely attractive and rich.

Describe your dream house. 
My dream house is one that is painted purple, at least 2-storey high, fully air-conditioned, with a walk-in wardrobe, jacuzzi, sauna, gym, theatre and my very own Makeup Studio.

Name a physical feature you get complimented on a lot. 
My eyes.

What is the best advice you have ever received? 
No one is obliged to help you. If they do, be grateful and don't take it for granted. If they don't, it is not right to be upset and think that they should help you.

What would be a question you'd be afraid to tell the truth on? 
On sensitive issues that I am not comfortable with, that will hurt me and/or my loved ones.

HOLLY SAYS: Verlyn is someone I met through blogging events as well. She's a girly girl and has a very nice personality. She's the kind who will be a little shy and reserved at first, but once she warms up, she's a joy to be around.
Age: 23
Height: 183cm
Occupation: Manufacturing Engineer

Do you like spontaneity or do you like routine? 
I guess I like to follow a routine, but I'm always open to a bit of spontaneity.

Do you prefer to wake up early or stay in bed till late in the morning? 
Technically I would prefer to stay in bed, but I wake up early everyday for work so rarely get the chance.

Beach holiday or city holiday? Why? 
Beach Holiday, I have always lived in the city and for a holiday you need a change of scenery.

Would you rather be unattractive and rich or extremely attractive and poor? 
Either of these would do me, attractiveness and money in life are only second to family, so as long as I had my family anything else is a luxury.

Describe your dream house. 
My dream house, I really like studio apartments and one day would love to stay in New York! I've got a thing for red brick walls inside too.

Name a physical feature you get complimented on a lot. 
I wouldn't say I get complimented on it ALOT but probably my eyebrows. They move a lot!

What is the best advice you have ever received? 
Everyone is doing the same thing, searching for contentment.

What would be a question you'd be afraid to tell the truth on? 
This question.

HOLLY SAYS: Perhaps I'm baised because he's from Scotland like my husband haha. But Connor is a great guy. He's got such a genuine smile, and is sometimes awkward shy when making the first move... but it's so adorable. Such a nice guy, and fun to be around. Very talented individual, he can paint, draw, cook, sing... and probably has a whole lot more skills I don't know about... that's for you to find out ;)
Age: 24
Height: 182cm
Occupation: Cadet Pilot (slated to join one of the local carriers in the near future)

Do you like spontaneity or do you like routine?
Spontaneity definitely! Because usually it means I can just plan and go without the agony of having to wait for the day to come. But such plans are hard to come by. Everyone's busy so spontaneous plans are usually for the night. Otherwise, my daily life is usually routinely planned. I try and fill up my days a week before hand so that I make full use of my time. it can be plans for social gatherings or hitting the gym or just time for myself to read a book. Of course these plans are changeable and if a friend calls to catch up I can always cancel out on my alone time for them. (i guess that counts towards being spontaneous?) 

Do you prefer to wake up early or stay in bed till late in the morning?
The timing I usually wake up to is dependent on the first appointment I have to attend to. I will look through my schedule for the next day and prep for it before I sleep. It doesn't make sense to me to wake up earlier and have not enough energy for the rest of the day. I will however make it a point to sleep early if I have an early appointment. At least this type of planning leaves me more energy for night plans. :)

Beach holiday or city holiday? Why?
No preference but if I was held at gunpoint to make a decision? Beach. Beach holiday with my close ones usually have more interaction compared to city holidays. I don't mind spending a day or two in the city if we are by the beach for 3 days already but I guess the whole point of a holiday is to relax and enjoy your close one's company. 

Would you rather be unattractive and rich or extremely attractive and poor?
Chicken or egg question. Took me awhile to reply this but even if you take out the poor, I will still choose unattractive. Rich people always have a fear that one day they will lose their assets. So they work harder and earn more and make sure they are as far away as possible from being bankrupt overnight. But this lifestyle takes the fun out of living. Money usually isn't always enough for them. We chase the dream job so much that we are blinded by the nice people around us. That we alienate ourselves for the worse in the name of wealth. So I wouldn't mind being unattractive. As long as I'm happy with the job that puts my family and I at a comfortable position. No 5C's? That's fine. I just need my daily dose of 3L. Love, Laugh, Live. 

Describe your dream house.
Haha. This is going to be simple but elaborate. Honestly, if money is a concern? Just get me a studio apartment already. Everything is within reach! Everything would be folded up when not needed. Including my bed! But if I have a family, I will count the number of kids I plan to have and give them a room each. A 4 room hdb/condo will suffice for a family of 4. But I will spend more on my renovation. Probably one on a high floor in downtown where I'm always so amazed by Singapore's city lights or by the sea side where the sea view and horizon take my breath away. I will get a hall with open space where a big tv can be used to watch movies with the family or soccer with the guys and my lady can watch whatever fashion/cooking show they want! A good sound system should be included too for the excitement. Oh and did I mention smaller tvs in the kitchen so the mrs can cook and catch the news/cooking channel? Perhaps one more in the toliet so it doesn't get too boring in there. If the ceiling is high, I intend to do an attic too! To have some quiet time with the books and computer or project work that I may need to embark on. Kitchen wise I'm not too particular so I'll leave it to the future mrs to decide. But at least one fridge must be in the living room. For chilled drinks and snacks. I take note of what I wear usually so I'm contemplating a walk in wardrobe with full length mirrors but that would be last on my list if I have some space cash and space. 

Name a physical feature you get complimented on a lot.
haha. My brows? I don't get complimented a lot or at least I don't bother to take note but I do get interesting comments on my brows whenever I meet people for the first time. it clearly hasn't been done up before but it has a natural tick towards the end. People tend to ask me if I spend some time in the morning doing it up. Well, the answer is no. I was born with it and I'm proud that's my unique signature. My army buddies who sleep together with me (pun unintended) can attest to this. 

What is the best advice you have ever received?
Haha. No one person has given me any all rounded good advice. It's all what you learn in life that you have to gel up together and see what's most relevant to you. But I strongly believe in YOLO but be safe. You only live once but no point doing an irreversible action. If you want to feel what's it like to para jump, pay a bit of money to get that experience with experienced safety personnel. Don't get drunk and attempt it off a building. 

What would be a question you'd be afraid to tell the truth on?
Haha, a lot of people's reputation will be at stake if I lead you on from here. So no thanks holly. :)

HOLLY SAYS: Believe it or not, I taught him in school when he was in 16! Now he's an adult, and on his was to a fabulous career in the sky. Aye.. I feel old. Even back when he was just 16, Royston was a very well mannered, eloquent,  intelligent and ambitious young man. Now, he is all that and more. So proud of him.
 Age: 35
Height: 1.73m
Occupation: Teacher

Do you like spontaneity or do you like routine?
It may sound like a cop out answer but the truth is, I really do like a mix of both. I do have certain routines which I'm perfectly comfortable with and enjoy like my usual morning coffee and reading the papers. At the same time, I also do love doing things unplanned (not work related of course!)

Do you prefer to wake up early or stay in bed till late in the morning?
I guess it's an occupational hazard, but I am a morning person. I wake up at about 630ish in the morning even on weekends and have my routine coffee and papers. (see above)

Beach holiday or city holiday? Why?
I'm not a beach sort of person and I do like city holidays for the interesting architecture and quaint shops. I like beautiful scenery though and have no problems with nature like going on hikes or camping (though unfortunately my friends don't so it's still me bugging people to go) Just not a beach and sand sort of person.

Would you rather be unattractive and rich or extremely attractive and poor?
Tricky question but if I had to really choose, I would have to say unattractive and rich At least I can do really fun things which I want to do without worrying about my next meal etc

Describe your dream house.
MY dream house would be a nice cottage of sorts in the countryside with lots of space for me to grow crops like vegetables and fruits for my own consumption. A subsistence sort of farm house would be really cool!

Name a physical feature you get complimented on a lot.
That's easy! Clich├ęd but really my eyes. More for the colour and shape. 

What is the best advice you have ever received?
That would probably be along the lines of do something to others if you are perfectly fine with them doing the same to you?

What would be a question you'd be afraid to tell the truth on?
Well, if it is someone I'm comfortable with, then i'd answer basically anything. In a way that's my weakness? Being very blunt. lol

HOLLY SAYS: Fahmy is a dear friend of mine. We met when we were undergraduates at NUS, and have been friends ever since. He's the kind of guy that is ready to settle down and is looking for someone on that same track. I would love to match him with a genuine girl out there who is looking for the same thing.
