Former Beauty Queen Can't Get A Date

Former Miss Singapore, Teo Ser Lee, is not able to get a date. And that’s not because she’s not beautiful.

On the contrary, she has the looks. But at the same time, she’s also a successful entrepreneur.

It’s not because she doesn’t want to get married.

It’s just because no man has enough guts and confidence to approach her.

Most men just assume that a woman with her beauty probably already has tons of suitors. So they don’t dare to court her for fear of being rejected.

Besides her good looks, there is also the issue of her success and wealth. To be able to hold a candle up to her, the man who wants to court her needs to be just as good-looking, successful and wealthy as her, if not more so.

Men have big ego by nature. What if a man makes advances towards her and gets rejected? He just can’t swallow the embarrassment. Worse still if she tells her associates, colleagues, family members and friends about it. The poor guy who’s not in her league and gets rejected by her, would be a laughing stock, derided and ridiculed by them.

Unless some handsome, rich, successful hunk comes to “rescue” her from her single-hood, it looks like Ser Lee may have no choice but to remain single for years to come. Maybe even for life, which is not necessarily a bad thing, considering the numerous financially stable and happy singles in our midst.

Yeah, the ego thing is something to reckon with - for both genders.

To HS: I think the ego thing affects men more than it affects women.

Yeah, surprised to know that she is still single despite being beautiful and successful in her career. No single Singapore men as successful as her meh?

To Serene: I'm very curious and kaypoh to know about all these not-so-nice stuff about her :p

To LIS: Age-wise she may be a tad over the hill. But she still got the looks wise. Yah. Ang-moh men definitely have more self-confidence than Chinese men.

To Eunice: Maybe those men who are as successful or more successful than her, who try to court her, got turned down by her because she thinks they are not good-looking enough :p

To Eunice: Precisely :) Men at the peak of their career tend to sport a balding peak at the top of their heads too :p

To LIS: People who are shorter than them cannot see their bald spot, but those around their height can see it. Ha, ha, ha...! :D
