Boyfriend very supportive

Low said her boyfriend has stood by her through her darker moments over the  past few months. In March, she was allegedly molested whilequeuing up for a taxi at Park Mall.

She said a man had tugged at her black strapless dress and exposed
her briefly.

“After that incident, he (her boyfriend) blamed himself for not arriving earlier to  pick me up.

“From then on, he also made sure that he always walks me up to my house, right  to my doorstep.”

Low’s boyfriend is fully aware, too, of her bipolar condition – which can lead to  dramatic and extreme mood swings.

“I had initial worries at first, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to deal with it,” he  admitted.

“After reading up more about bipolar disorder, I learned that it was a mental  condition that was easily manageable. I just have to be more sensitive to her  needs.”

They have met each other’s family.

“My mum likes him a lot,” said Low, beaming. “He is very mature, and she knows he’d be able to take care of me well. She complains though, that he dotes on me  a little too much.”

Low’s boyfriend picked her up after this interview and the two certainly looked like  a picture of happiness.

“I personally put these up,” Low said, pointing to the photos of them she had decorated his Toyota Corolla with.

Low, who was listed last year by a CNN-affiliated website as one of 25 people who  mattered most in Asia, said that while it has been only five months into her  present relationship, she and her boyfriend have “made plans for the future”.

“When I am 21, I’ll move out and we’ll get a place of our own. Then, we’ll rear  pets like cats and dogs.”
