I'm programmed that way? Really?


Try dating someone who is smarter, hotter and makes more money than you. How long can you last with her without losing your sense of pride/sanity in Asia?


It's not that I don't want to try. It's more like they never even gave it a romantic chance to begin with.

Case in point:
I asked the women arnd my age (~25) in my social group, and in the end it became a one on one "friends hangout"...I try to get close to slightly older women (early 30s) and they treat me like a kid somewhat. (heart to heart talk here, whoops)...maybe they see I don't have anything worth sharing with them, or perhaps nothing worth discovering (In their view)?

Yeah, it's possible to have income differences in this day and age. I would probably shirk away if she begins by saying, "Oh I work in Raffles Place/CBD area..." but if she's humble towards life, I would probably get drawn to her even more. I did have some issues on deciding where to take one of my dates for dinner since she's...let's say "one class higher" than me.

Perhaps I gotta get a dating coach here...dress myself more like a grown up man (I still go around to work or social activities with jeans, t-shirt, Chuck Taylors and sometimes a hoodie), read more books, watch more worldly news, go travel and experience more. Or get a pet dog. :P

PS. In my defense, when I do take them out, I would dress appropriately, even though it's just a weekday after work dinner.


how about dating a 'cougar'? sure they won't mind of your income or your age. :P

Let's just say my body is currently not in the position to be the "boy toy" bait for cougars...

:roll:

(And by cougars, we're talking about 40+, right?)

Will she be a cougar then? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shannon_Elizabeth

40 is the new 30.

Somewhere along the way, I never once thought that a 30+ woman could she be "certified" as a cougar...

Maybe it was also because of Stifler's Mom in American Pie? :P

30 is the new 20 I suppose. And by that calculation, since I'm still in my mid 20s, I'd be considered as a 15 years old...not even qualified to buy my own beer...is that why, I wonder?
