Over 100 dates but ex-beauty queen yet to find Mr Right
by Jennani Durai

Singapore - She remains faithful to one agency but unfortunately hasn't found "The One" to be loyal to.

Statuesque Genecia Luo, 29, is clearly not lacking in the looks department.

She was the 2006 Miss Singapore International. Not a single hair is out of place and her make-up is immaculate.

She is well made-up with her false eyelashes complementing her big eyes.

But despite her dating agency, Lunch Actually, setting her up on over 100 dates, she has yet to find a partner.

She frowns and shakes her head as she says: "In fact, none of those 100 dates led to a second date."

"None have even come close to what I look for in a man," she tells The New Paper on Sunday.

Miss Luo first joined the agency in 2008, at the age of 24, after close friend urged her to do so.

"It took her a hundred dates for my friend to find the perfect man, who is now her husband.

"And she said that I had to start sooner rather than later," says Miss Luo.

Still, she hasn't been as lucky as her friend.

But the five-year search hasn't yielded any results.

In a matter-of-fact tone, Miss Luo blames it on her success. "Success is a curse," she repeats throughout the interview.

She runs her own coaching business InQueenz, which provides personal development programmes such as interpersonal skills, and grooming and deportment.

Miss Luo says she can earn up to $500,000 per annum.

While she can talk about her list of achievements, she admits that it is a double-edged sword.

"One of the reasons why these dates never progress to anything more is because most of the men are intimidated by my success." Her confidence and strong opinions, she says, is a turn-off for many men.

She recalls some of her dates where the men would focus on her ability to perform household chores, or ask if she would be a good mother.

"I'm so shocked when they ask those type of questions. They almost make me feel inhuman," she says.

And then there are the "robotic dates" that are an instant turn-off.

"Some would just rattle off a list of questions almost as if they just want to check every box before the date ends," she says.

not all women can bring success to a man, some are jinx.

U forgot to mention :
Every failure in man, behind sure got a woman

Most of us have heard this more than a thousand times: Behind every successful man is a woman. Don't believe me? Look at the people around you. A good wife makes an average man successful, and a successful man to become even more successful. As long as living things exist, the ying yang theory can never go wrong. A smart Mr Right knows what to look for in a wife, so as to achieve balance in life. Doesn't mean that looking after children, doing household chores, cooking etc are easy jobs. It is hell of a difficult job, it can be tougher than men jet setting around the globe and slotting it out in the office.

If Mr Right marry Ms Wrong, Mr Right will quickly becomes Mr Wrong. That is why this Ms Genetic Luo will have difficulty finding her Mr .....

Poor easy to get along gal got dumped one side and had to put up with the string of affairs of the Casanova flirt Jackie.

Her only pride Is how well the son turned out.

Its Not worth sacrificing your own happiness by being easy to get along with.
