Just a question.
Busy executives. Driven. Ambitious. Career-minded. Opinionated.
How do these women in Singapore find a partner?
At 19, you were the youngest at the workplace. Women in their late 20's think maybe you should be up to some mischief instead of working. Men in their late 20's think you're a sweet young thing. You want to maybe look and be 24-25yrs and want to look a little more mature.
And then the years fly by. Suddenly you wake up and realise you're holy macaroons! already 27 years old! Now what? The men around you (colleagues likely, since we're talking about career-minded women here) are now either married, or too young. Those your age still make jokes that are not funny.
Erm, so you meet the random guy at the bar? How often men who make the first moves in a dimly lit bar are reliable?
I mean, how do they even decide you're someone they want to talk to?
You dance with confidence thus, you're easy? You laugh a lot, so you'll likely laugh at his jokes? You dress sexy, so he wants to see more of that fantastic cleavage? You're alone so, hey, pick you up better than that really hot girl at the other end of the room?
I say, loser, take a hike.
So what on earth do these self respecting women who are looking for life-long partners do? Someone who likes her for her character, for her wit, for her opinions, for everything that she is and isn't.
Ah now, this sounds like what I possibly can only find in a fairytale.
Of course, we don't rule out the exceptions and fate that sometimes steps in.
Do we look among guys in the gym or oh god forbid, your neighbour? Gosh I don't know.
Mom if you are reading this, I'm destined to be your daughter forevermore if I cannot find Mr Right within 3 years!
P.s.: Let's see, maybe I go join a dating website?! That'll be cool wouldn't it? I'm sure there'll be loads of fun! Plus I'll blog about it!
