Was reading the strait's time and this particular message catches my most attention,

from the ST forum

DON"T BOTHER ME, I'M HAPPY TO BE SINGLE

i just want to say that i am very happy to remain single
and am very satisfied with my life now.

i do not need the government to tell me to settle down and have babies. it should have better things to do than interfere in its people's affair.

at my mum's request, i have had to go through the humiliating experience of a matchmaking process. (she's worried about me
being left on the shelf while my siblings set up families of their own).

but some things are not meant to be. it's not my fault for not getting hitched and having a happy family when my male counterparts set such high standards. they want their wife-to-be to be pretty and submisssive.

by HELEN TAY HIANG GEIK

what you guys and gals think of this?
:dunno: :)

I don't really think that the government will go to the extend of bugging people into marriage. They "encourage" people to start a family to be more accurate I think. There is a difference.

As for the other point, well, there's always 2 sides to a fence isn't it?

My toes are laughing from the article in the papers. Why complain when they insist on equality of the sexes and yet they still think men are not sensitive to their needs. Sigh....paradox galore. LOL

also from the Straits Times:

"Some well-educated, financially-independent women faced a psychological barrier about admitting that they want to get hitched, she (Miss Chin Lai Yin, founder of Love Match agency)suggested.

'How to announce to the whole world in a survey that I'm lonely and I need someone?' she said.

....'Have you ever tried living alone and falling ill? And there's nobody to give you medicine? You must be crazy to want to stay single. And every woman has sexual needs.'

con't

so much for that "I'm happy to be single" tune.

yes, he is totally correct, pls do it now, once u step into working environment u will very low chance to get a gf, as most of the girls are attached already (or even married), unless u have a chance to know girls from friends, pub etc...

if u so bad luck till go into kind of my company, u can only face those guys and ask "why no girls in the company...?" :bheart:
