Local men do not pale in comparison to Caucasians
by Germaine Lim

The new generation of female personalities joins a burgeoning class of interracial couples.

Bernice attributes the rise in local interracial marriages to Singapore becoming a global village.

“So many people move in and out of the country. Locals are more exposed to people of other races,” she said.

However, Jamie and 987 deejay Rosalyn Lee stressed that local men definitely do not pale in comparison to their Caucasian rivals.

Even though Jamie is dating an ang moh, she says there are a lot of eligible local guys.

The 32-year-old said: “They are definitely not second-rate. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have married one.”

She split with husband of five years, Class 95 deejay Glenn Ong, last year. She revealed that marriage with Mr Nolte is on the cards and could happen soon.

She added: “I know a lot of locals who are articulate, not sheltered, independent and have a great sense of humour.

“There are also a lot of Caucasian guys I wouldn’t date. For me, personality is the most important thing. “It’s impossible to compare locals and Caucasians because there are nice and not-so-nice guys in both groups.”
