Too loud for S’pore guys

Ex-actress Cassandra See, 40, says she has never dated local guys because she’s “ too loud” for them and thinks they prefer demure girls.

She divorced her German husband Chris Schuler after three years of marriage. Their son, Lukas, is 9.

Cassandra has been dating a Korean guy since 2005.

For Bernice, her height requirement eliminates “95 per cent of local guys”.

The 32-year-old beauty queen is 1.77m and her English husband of two years, Anton Casey, is 1.85m.

Bernice, who’s now a make-up trainer at her own Bernice Wong Beauty International company, added: “I have never been able to click with local guys. Somehow, our personalities don’t match up.

“I’ve only dated one local guy so my answers aren’t a good benchmark.

“But I will say that the local guys I’ve met are pretty sheltered. I’d like them to be more masculine, not so ‘baby-ed’ and less childish.”

Older female stars like Zoe Tay, Fann Wong and Huang Biren don’t seem to have such problems with local guys.

Former actress Biren, 41, married her Singaporean Chinese hubby in 1995, while Zoe, 42, wed local airforce pilot Philip Chionh in 2001.

Newlyweds Fann, 39, and actor Christopher Lee – he is a Singapore PR – held their nuptials last September.
