Dating in Singapore

Postby AngMohWez » Sat, 20 Oct 2012 11:35 am

Hey guys,

So I might have an opportunity to work in Singapore so I am in Singapore at the moment just checking it out doing some research etc.

I want to get an expats view on dating in Singapore?

Personally I am a 23 year old Caucasian, is meeting white girls difficult, I hear the dating pool can seem small?

I don't mind dating asian girls either, I'm quite attracted asian girls and I've even dated an asian girl back home, but it seems like generally local girls aren't very interested in western guys, am I right?

Go to a mixed expat/local club and see. It's all about your own attitude.

If that's not your thing, try a free dating site like OkCupid. You can see right there if the locals are interested in foreigners or not.

I'm sorry to say but your entire stay in Singapore will be marked by 100% celibacy. ;)

We had a lengthy discussion about a Caucasian sussing out dating life in Singapore. OP was also in your position.

Because local girls unless they are SPG's don't go for white guys or they just don't give it up that easy?

Bud, there is a lot of tongue in cheek comments here. Singapore is heaven for the single man, no matter your preference for women. Hell, it's also heaven for the married man.

You have to try harder to not get laid than to get laid, how about that? Although the average local girl is a bit more 'conservative' than the average American or European, if you want a one night stand they exist. There is also Geylang, Orchard Tower, and plenty of other places to go if you prefer. It's arguably cheaper in the long run than dating a local :P

they're gonna love you long time. really. you're gonna catch or get the fever!

okay, kidding aside (i think), asian girls (not necessarily locals) will find you irresistible.

For most Asians, having a Caucasian partner is like catching a rare pokemon (or something like that) :P

You'll be spoiled for choice although if you like doing it Greek style it can be hard to find Asian girls who like it that way.

Why would anyone want to do it Greek Style mate? Unless your definition of Greek Style is different from than the one I found on the internet.
