Expats in singapore dating girls

opinion

Of all the things I love about London, from the spacious and homely pubs to the abundant museums and galleries, by far the most wonderful thing is briefly falling head over heels for strangers you'll probably never see again. There's something bittersweet about holding the gaze of the handsome stranger across the train car and that's how you know it's real, because making eye contact on the tube is unacceptable otherwise.

Unfortunately, unlike London, Singapore is nearly devoid of such bittersweet connections. Here, the only person staring at you across the train cabin usually "Expats in singapore dating girls" a pedo 'stache, an unreasonably shiny forehead, and one too many shirt buttons undone. Despite having 5 million people, the city feels very small. Chances are that any man you come across with a half-decent face only has two degrees of separation from you, one of which is probably your workmate whom he went on a date with and never called back.

Singapore has many attractions as a city, but abundant romance is definitely not one of them. However, I think what kills the romance - at least amongst the expat community - is a terrible affliction that Expats in singapore dating girls like to call Ang Moh Syndrome Ang Moh being the collective term for white people in Singapore.

However, as with everything else...

This is a woeful situation in which ' Yellow Fever ' and an inflamed ego combine to create a ghastly condition. With my expert opinion, garnered by at least ten first dates, first-hand interviews and extensive social media stalking, I will attempt to give an introductory understanding as to why dating in Singapore is such an awful mess. There are several stages of dating for the average male expat in Singapore.

I always say that the best time to date a man is within a few weeks of him reaching Singapore, or after many many years of living here. These are the periods before Ang Moh Syndrome settles in, and after the epidemic has hopefully passed.

The syndrome itself is very deadly, with a slow onset but strong symptoms. The victim Expats in singapore dating girls be any man ranging from below to slightly above average attractiveness the very attractive are either immune or have already been afflicted by similar conditions, although sometimes existing symptoms can become exacerbated.

However, as with everything else...

Back home in Lyon, Jacques is nothing special looks-wise although I'm sure that somewhere underneath the accent that sounds too strong to be real, he must have a perfectly adequate personality. His charm or closest thing to it, considering that his personality is about as appealing as a plastic spoon lies in meeting women through the office, where the dull pace of their uninspiring jobs makes Jacques seem terribly charming in comparison.

Never in his Expats in singapore dating girls has Jacques had women fawning over him except perhaps for that one time he went to Ibiza in which he swears it happened, but it probably didn't. Jacques has never been seen as an object of mass desire.
