Singaporean men are better: American girl

Today's confession was penned by an SMU student, an American girl who is attached to a Singaporean guy and appreciates how well she is being treated as compared to having western boyfriends.

Here is the confession in full:

"I'm an American girl who migrated to Singapore, and am currently attached to a Singaporean guy.

"I have been in several relationships with western guys.

"When I started dating my Singaporean boyfriend, I was completely taken aback by the kindness that he showed me. Even simple things like pulling out my chair for me and walking me to the bus stop.

"I never had a boyfriend do things like this for me and when he does these simple things for me it makes me so happy.

"In my previous relationships, I was always the person giving.

"I would clean, cook and bake, buy presents for my boyfriend, etc. just about everything you can think of for these lazy j**ks.

"And they would still yell at me, threaten me, tell me I wasn't good enough or crazy when I asked them why they didn't appreciate the things I do for them.

"I had almost given up on love before I met my Singaporean boyfriend and I had completely given up on the idea that a guy could give me half as much as I am willing to give them.

"When I came to Asia to study abroad, I was amazed by the effort that the men here put into their relationships.

"The kindness, compassion, and respect they have for women.

"I have nothing to say to girls who can't appreciate how hard working and amazing you all are.

"To Singaporean guys I have one thing to say - Please let me remind you that Singapore is a very small place.

"I think some of you should start looking elsewhere for girls that can truly appreciate you."
