Boyfriend criteria: Must be Korean and earn at least $8K

SINGAPORE - These days, if you earn a monthly salary of about $4,000 to $5,000... guys, it seems it's hard to even be considered as an 'eligible' boyfriend, according to the criteria of this young lady who recently made headlines on Straits Times citizen journalism website (STOMP).

STOMP reported that a reader Netizen said that he was shocked when he came across a weblog of a Singaporean girl looking for a man, who earns at least $8,333 and is of Korean lineage, to be her boyfriend.

In an email to STOMP, the reader wrote: “While surfing the net I came across this young female Singapore girl who is out looking for her ‘ideal’ boyfriend.

“She has some very stringent conditions and the potential boyfriend must be able to fulfill her unique ‘criteria’ and unconditional demands. I am wondering whether such an ideal Korean male (or even Singaporean) can be found in Utopia or on this side of reality.

“The boyfriend must be able to earn at least $8,333 per month and must be a Korean or at least have Korean blood in his lineage.

Besides that, the female blogger, 25, is not interested in old men, and only accepts men aged between 27 to 34 years old, reported STOMP.

Reader Netizen also wrote that the blogger had the following conditions for her 'ideal' boyfriend: “She wants young men probably below the age of 35. She is not interested in a boyfriend who is honest, truthful, faithful and has integrity.

“The boyfriend must own Korean property and be a teetotaler. He must be a non-smoker or at least a semi-saint.

“He must like Korean food like Korean anchovy, kimbap (sushi rolls), chicken stew, braised beef.

On the success of her search, reader Netizen had this to say: “I wish her all the best in her search for the ideal boyfriend.

“Small wonder why more Singapore males are heading for China and Vietnam to look for a simple bride who is satisfied with a 3-room HDB flat.”

readers' comments
It's sad to see some ladies go to such extremes. But I hope they will eventually wake up quick and realize that what she is doing is not far from pimping herself out there. Her beauty will fade as the years go by and the rich husband will roam elsewhere. If she has high expectations from her partner, she mustn't forget that her partner will have equally high expectations.

She's probably looking for a member of "Super Junior". A boy band in korea and apparently famous internationally.

Singapore girls have long known to have high expectations. Nothing wrong with that but this girl's expectation obviously wasn't realistic.

Many of such women are left on the shelf precisely because of their unrealistic expectations.

If I am a male of that caliber I will have a ton of choices for female companionship. She has to probably fight for me. And not wait for me to goto her. She should grow up or she'll certainly grow old.....alone.....

with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income. This has better chance than finding a rich fool..

Hope this reply helps.. If you are interested in 'leasing' services, do contact me...

J.P. Morgan :)

money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can't be prettier year after year. Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It's not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worried 10 years later.

By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a 'trading position'. If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term - same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or 'leased'. Anyone .....

Dear Ms. Pretty,

I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor. My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I'm not wasting time here. From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you.. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.

Put the details aside, what you're trying to do is an exchange of 'beauty' and 'money': Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square. However, there's a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my .....
