Boy boy....how I wish I had read that New Paper article...I would have straightaway started whacking the keyboard and pasting something on it ! As it is, maybe www could scan in the article and Email me ?? Hahaha Just kidding !
Singaporean women who are successful, attractive and vocal would probably think about Asian men as mentioned in the article. It's the kind of mentality where they think :"I have already got all the good qualities and am quite desirable, so why should I settle for less ?" Therefore these women would go and look for broader horizons a.k.a. ang moh men ! As the media has portrayed Western men to be such great lovers and romanticised the whole affair, of course these women are "smitten" by them. The fact that Western men look bigger sized and taller does not help to dispel the impression either !
I would say some men in Singapore are clueless about BGR, how to treat a girl and are also conservative to the max and narrow-minded. But the same can be said for the girls too ! It's not only the guys who are like that...in fact there may be more girls who are like this than guys are ! It's just that we tend to notice the more "happening" and vocal ones who stand out from the rest of the mundane majority (no insults intended).
Just walk around Orchard Road or Suntec City (where I like to hang out hehe)...and I see lots of Singaporean couples together and happy. Obviously if so many Asian women find Asian men repulsive, then why do I observe this ? Furthermore, most of my University friends would like an Asian Chinese guy for a husband too. Character may differ of course but the race is almost always indefinitely chinese (local).
Planning ahead may seem like the guy is very stuffy and unoriginal. But look at it this way, it is still better than "not knowing what's your future like". Never knowing where and when your next dollar is coming in. If women in Singapore like to live for the day, then they are welcome to do so...but see where they end up in 10 years time !
Singapore men are good planners, and supposedly women look for guys who are stable in career and have a sense of security. So do i see a contradiction here ? Geez...
Women still are not too open about men in general. They THINK that Western men are more open, and maybe they truly are. But they never give the Asian man a chance to open up and talk, and Asian women also don't open up to the Asian men. So it's a vicious cycle.......!
I know of girls who are more selfish than guys when it comes to relationships. She takes him for granted while he carries her bags, pays for her and treats her like a queen. She in turn, treats him like a spare tyre for monetary and emotional support. So are girls more selfish or guys ? Some guys are sweet to the girl to the point of stupidity, because the girl doesn't even appreciate !!
Singapore women also have double standards for Asian men. They expect the perfect combination of MCP and SNAG. They expect the perfect equality of sexes. And they also expect to be treated as women, but at the same time being able to assert their rights on equal with men. Women are expecting too much, and ignoring the GUYS' expectations of them !
Romance novels have contributed to an idealised state of mind, and this is to the detriment of Singaporean guys. girls expect romantic gestures, love letters and what-nots in the game of love. Though these may seem sweet and romantic, it's the guys' true character inside of him that matters, and the girl may not be aware of this after being "blinded" by the gifts and nice treatment.
To conclude, let me just say that women can be more insensitive and less vocal than men. Less opinionated and less verbose. Basically, if Asian men are that bad, then I've seen the female "version" too. Suffice to say that I now claim that I am "bored" with Asian women and wanna have some fun with Western Women because of a few such girls ?? How totally baseless and preposterous !!
Just my 2 dollars worth of comments...haha...I charge by the paragraphs I type !
