    Yeah, this reminds me of the concept of trial marriage - from becoming GF/BF thing to something more serious. It is a fabulous idea or trend - you try things out, if it works out, well continue from there or else, just move on. Simple.

    Just like before you buy a cam or lens, you what to test it out first, right? Marriage should also be like that.

    Haha true! But Darwin's 'evolution by natural selection' theory does not involve money. It involves more offspring!

    I believe men and women now are contaminated by free market economy, therefore they just becomes greedy when they see better things out there.

    That is why so many people looking for brides from Vietnam, Indonesia, China where the bride can be very happy even just for slight financial upgrade and they are willing to serve the best to the husband.

    However nowadays, there are more and more hi-life style showed-off everywhere (on the TV, internet, newspaper), so many people want to have it too, so now they trade the looks with good-heart and/or money.
    I believe in Darwin's 'evolution by natural selection' theory and humans in this century certainly have different opinions and needs than those in previous century. Nowadays, we can control birth, back then, where got such thing?

    Default What women really want

    When they say that they want someone with a great sense of humour, they always actually mean that they just want someone with a great dick

    Hey "dick" isn't on the censored word list, yet

    I do have some friends who have had very happy marriages wherby looks, $ and cars are never the priority. And I must say they seem to be the most happily married couples I know. I can't think of any Hollywood stars who can come close to that!

    If we remove all the glamour that the media has portrayed about hunks and pretty babes, I think a relationship constitutes more than just looks. Yes, looks are to a certain extent a component in attraction but definitely not the end all. Unfortunately, we've been bombarded with all the Hollywood illusions and glamour magazines and TV shows that portray a lady/guy as attractive only if she/he has riches and good looks. And sadly, some (young) people do take this mantra to heart and choose to believe that is the only way.

    I believe this applies to the guys too. Most SG gals are still the guys' jug of beer.

    are you being too presumptuous? even if you are a female, you should still not be presumptuous.

    In wat way? If I accidentally make u unhappy, sorry woh. But must let me know wat....otherwise I dunno
    yes, i do know what SPG stands for in local context, however, your admission is noted. sleep tight and don't let the bedbug bites!

    Well, from a gal's perspective, just switch the words "guy" and "gal" in the paragraph above, it's equally true. There are equally picky guys (similarly not all) out there. I have friends who married caucasian men because sg men dun see beyond the looks (and figure)...people from other cultures appreciate the inner qualities more...

    Erm....boys will be boys and boys need their toys and men still can't do without their toys....ok i dunno how to continue my poem liao

    Guys across all races/cultures are similar. Guys will still value looks, not so good looking? Nevermind, as long as she has a good character and can get along well, it will be fine. If SG men dun see beyond looks, then all those married SG men must have super pretty wives!? Thats not the case ya?

    Sometimes, those comments are meant to encourage or praise?
