They even have mosquito spray on hand to ensure that you are not eaten before you eat. A few nice meals, trips to the movies, some shopping and ice cream, we’ve all been there. They often stop dead right in the middle of something and change direction, rather inconvenient when you are behind or alongside them.I would entertain, pay and generally be the archetypal gentleman, and I loved every minute of it. They also appear to have different ideas about what "dating" means.People are very trusting here and I was pleasantly surprised to get viewed and contacted by women who barely knew me, offering telephone numbers (HPs – I did think they were brandishing bottles of brown sauce until I realised that stood for ‘hand phones’, mobiles) email addresses and suggested meeting places. However, she looked human and smiled nicely, so my rigorous selection procedure ushered her through and we met up and had dinner. I was charming, even if I do say so myself and the setting was great – Rochester Park.
“I moved to Singapore five years ago with my husband, but after ten years of marriage he decided that being married wasn’t what he wanted.
Though we separated last August, I really only hit the scene in March this year.” Susan* broke up with a long-term boyfriend in her 20s and has been single for just over a year.
We spoke to two expat ladies who are discovering just what Singapore has to offer for singles, and asked them to impart any tips they had on playing the dating game here.
Penny*, in her early 40s, found herself single again after ten years of marriage.
Not unless I decide to cross without the guidance of the green man, a crime against humanity here in Singapore. My past is littered with examples of unrequited love, pointless pining and disastrous misjudgments.
My success rate is slightly more impressive than Gordon Brown’s attempts at smiling, and just as pretty. Though finding a woman here has been far easier than in the UK, keeping or understanding them has been a whole new ball game.
What can be done to solve this is open and honest communication.
Inform your partner of your own personal needs and desires and what they can do differently to make you feel the love you know they have for you.
In fact, we may receive love from them in numerous ways we don’t realise because we’re too busy harping on what we want instead of giving thanks for what we have.
As we have mentioned before, there are five different love languages, which will explain the various ways we express our love for one another.
This can be great as you never have to run into them again, but if you are looking for “Mr Big” it’s a harder game to play.
