    WEDDING bells went a-ringing in 2008, with nearly 24,600 marriages registered in Singapore, the highest number since year 2000.
    That's about 1 in 4 Singapore male married foreign female, this really don't look good to local female

    From the BBC, "By 2020, China could be short of around 40 million women, leaving many young men unable to find wives. "

    i know quite a number of females close to their 30s or early 30s who are just desperate for marriage.

    even some as early as 25 are already showing their desperation. but still have high expectations...

    their general criterion are...
    a. good career
    b. good money
    c. good family background and values
    d. good looks and body
    e. obedience to her (not your mom)
    f. good conversationalist
    g. not geeky
    h. preferably with condo and car

    makes me wonder what can they offer, other than being a girl having a singapore passport.

    I can share a secret with you for making Yak Butter Tea no one can beat a Tibetan woman. Good luck!
    No, Singaporean men must be very careful. If I want a good marriage life I will choose a 18 years old village girl who can only speak Vietnamese and nothing else. You have to educate her with a positive mindset and the real situation of your being. Lastly love and treat her as a hunan being and a member of your family - not a multi-tasks super employee. Being Buddhist does not mean they will never do something evil.

    My dear friend share more with us about Tibetan woman. Thank you very much.

    I used to feel sorry for the S'porean guy.

    Many educated, well-mannered, decent looking Spore girls were just not interested in us. They wanted the fancy foreign man with his exotic looks, charming personality and fat wallet.

    Then I went overseas to study ................ Well lets just say the grass is very much greener on the other side.

    So guys just get a foreign chick !!! My personal favourites are ameri/aussie born asians. Pretty, demure, educated and most still retain Asian values. PERFECT ! Even ang-moh girls are far less stuck-up and easy to socialise with than Sporean girls. N let it be known that outside of Spore, many girls do HIGHLY appreciate a guy that is honest, hardworking, educated, polite and gentle.

    Most of us are well educated, civilised, gentlemen. Also, i disagree with rains on many points. I think Singaporean guys don't really expect their wives to cook/do all the housework... They expect maids to do it!
    Remember not all FLs are good cooks and some are even more demanding.

    Dun worry about the local women.....I hear China is male rich So maybe that's why marriage not registered in SG
    What's the current ratio of men:women in SG? (think in 2004 it was about 1:1)

    actually, in the first place, how many:

    a) educated
    b) well-mannered
    c) decent-looking

    singapore girls do you know?

    in fact, not just singapore.

    so are you married to a foreign chick now?

    i think even if they are as perfect as you claim, from personal experience, there is just an uncrossable border. you see singapore as home, they don't. unless you don't see singapore as home.....

    er, wait, you mean you claim to be :

    1) married
    2) you love your wife
    3) she's the only woman you want and will spend the rest of your life with

    but you also:
    1) have eca and call it business transaction

    i am falling to see the link between the first list and the second.

    and modest.


    btw i don't think there are that many of us females who want foreign men. well i don't, and i'm happily attached with a chinese singaporean anyways. but then again, you talking about pretty and demure girls only... i not demure

    i think i must have been hallucinating my first year philosophy class then.. i remember a lot of blank looks and thinking "so why are you taking this course when you're obviously not interested".

    during group discussions it got worse. you realised that some of them just want to have an opinion just to have one, with nothing much to back it up. they can't even explain why they think a certain way! how is that possible?

    anyways, everywhere the same la.. you got well-read singaporean girls too.

    let's put it in another perspective, in general groups of singapore guys also tend to talk about:

    1) how bad life in singapore is
    2) how bad life in army was
    3) soccer yawn
    4) cars yawn
    5) gadgets yawn

    the situations also tends to happen.. i think you'd agree!

    i think in the past some attempts at starting anything other than photography or girls or gossip topics here in clubsnap failed miserably, not more than 10 replies..

    When you marry, it's not just for this life-time, think about the next generation too - the upbringing and education of your children. You will want someone who is not 'simple-minded' to teach and educate them... since you will be busy working to maintain the household.

    Oh, by the way, my wife is local


    i hope your wife reads this!
