More Singaporean women finding love with men from China
More Singaporean women are overcoming bias and cultural differences to find love with men from China
Singaporean Airene Tan finds men from China somewhat self-centred and ambitious, which she attributes to the country's one- child policy and highly competitive education system.
That, however, is not stopping the 30-year-old senior designer with a mobile advertising company from marrying one of them.
"I would say the competitive streak in him is healthy for our relationship as I prefer someone who has drive," she says of her husband-to-be, IT specialist Ding Zhuo from Beijing. "I also find him independent and intellectually mature."
Mr Ding, 31, who came to Singapore with his parents when he was 11, says MsTan changed his view of Singaporean women.
