Singaporean Girls & Western Men
The stand out factor when it comes to Singaporean girls and the
romantic adventures that you’ll have with them compared to girls from
other areas of Asia is, of course, related to economic development.
in the vast majority of Asian countries the level of development lags
way behind the west, in Singapore the reverse is true – the west is
That fact is not often fully appreciated; the
average income in Singapore actually exceeds that of any western country
(with the exception of the tiny European state Luxembourg).
Clarke Quay, Singapore at night.
The latest figures that I've seen (IMF, 2018) for Singapore give a GDP per capita of $100,345 per year. Compare that to $62,606 for the USA and a paltry $45,705 in the UK (believe it my fellow Brits, most Singaporean girls probably earn more than you do!).
If you like to be the main earner, I'd stick to poorer SEA countries.
It does make you wonder though; as a graduate of Economics I can tell you with some confidence that there is an uneasy relationship between income per head and quality of life.
Capitalism is a fine thing for achieving economic growth and providing many of the things that create a high standard of living but, if you’re not careful, it will have you spending all of the extra income that you earn and more besides as you borrow and extend credit lines to further increase spending...
Singaporean girls are similar to the Malaysian women of Chinese extraction; they are often remarked upon for their orientation towards money, and the constant pursuit of more and more of it.
Consumerist societies, through non-stop advertising, urge you to spend money on things that won’t really improve your quality of life, like designer clothes, Rolex watches, BMWs and so on. You can’t stop yourself because you have to keep up with those around you to maintain face and status.
In Japan things have got to the extent that people are spending around 80 hours per week at work! I read a silly article a while ago about the future extinction of the Japanese race because the young people there don’t have any energy left to make babies! It’s crazy isn’t it, when young people in rich countries can’t afford to make time for sex, it’s consumerism gone completely mad!
Okay, you might be wondering what all this has got to do with dating Singaporean girls.
The answer is because the western rat-race that I’ve just described is exactly what a sizable proportion of expats in Asia are trying to get away from and, if you are one of them, then you might want to cease your interest in Singaporean girls because I’m afraid that their consumer appetites are, by all accounts, even worse than those in the west - and the need to 'maintain face' by buying the latest gadgets is even more intense!
Cost of Living in Singapore
Clearly, Singapore is not going to suit your average expat.
There are, however, some westerners for whom it may be the perfect blend of East and West. If your finances are fit and healthy then life there will be very good, the infrastructure is second to none, everything works like clockwork, and it is one of the safest places on Earth even at night.
Healthcare is top notch, there is no corruption, cleanliness is unrivaled and all the comforts of a wealthy society are abundantly available.
Singaporean Girls and Dating Culture
Singaporean girls are amongst the most beautiful in Asia and, if your finances are up to it, you’ll find that getting dates is much easier than it is in the west.
A night out at a decent restaurant, with some alcohol involved, can easily cost you 200-300 Singapore dollars (SGD) as the local custom is very much that the man pays for everything. Singapore may be an economically developed country and globalization may well have westernized the people in some ways, but this is still an Asian city and the Asian way of life prevails in most ways.
The dominant ethnic group in Singapore are the Chinese, and their culture is almost identical to that of the Chinese Malaysians. If you read my advice about Malaysian girls you’ll know that their dating culture is very similar to Thai dating culture, so if you have experience in Thailand then you'll have an idea of what is involved.
When getting married, a small symbolic dowry will be expected but you’re unlikely to face ongoing pressure to provide for family members since they’ll most likely have their own resources to draw upon. However, you’d still better make sure that you pick the right girl if marriage is on your mind – a typical wedding will cost 50,000 SGD and up!
Casual dating is no problem but casual sex is another matter; Singaporean girls are quite reserved and news travels very quickly in such a small country, so you’ll need to be patient.
There are some ladies that are known for their preference of Caucasian men, they are referred to as ‘Sarong party girls’ and you’ll find them hanging around expat watering holes. Not everyone will be interested though, and some Singaporean girls will not entertain the idea of a cross-cultural relationship.
