Singapore expat dating scene panties dating rules
Much of the housing in Singapore comes in high-rise condo or apartment form.
Even those that live in a free-standing home will find that backyards are rarities, but there are lots of green spaces and parks around the island to make up for it.
She was, admittedly, out of my league but she seemed to like something about me.
The problem was, I couldn’t figure out what, so I was unable to capitalise. As you may have guessed, I am a little more cautious and I email only after a strict vetting process.
On my birthday last year, I decided that the girl I liked from work had to be told, so we began what seemed a very successful partnership with some coffee and cake.I quickly discovered the most pleasing and liberating aspect of dating in this part of the world: you don’t have to prove you’re not an axe-murderer. I thought I’d hit the jackpot almost straight away as I started exchanging emails with a very nice, open and entertaining girl about my age (34) who liked my jokes. She seemed attractive enough, although her photo did suggest that she had a lampshade attached to her cheek.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 was even more cheerful when I discovered that he was a 55-year-old German who bore a rather striking resemblance to me (with wrinkles). She hadn’t put a photo on her profile and it was obvious why.That wouldn’t have been such a problem if her personality had compensated for it. I took her to a hotel restaurant – The Swissotel by Clarke Quay has a quaint poolside place that makes its own brand of crisps as well as rather nice food.
