Are funny women intimidating
While I am totally okay and at peace with being a single (I would rather be single than be with someone whom I don’t like), I don’t want to end up as that archetype if I can have my way. Deep down, I thought there was something wrong with me as a woman.
I don’t want to have a life where I have no one to call my own. Where others have no problems landing the relationship of their dreams, I seem unable to do so.
Hence, I’m frequently singled out by others for my accomplishments and for being a driven and “fearless” person.
Despite people lauding me from a place of good intention, I would feel mixed about being such a “strong” person (read: woman).
Depending on how things go, I’m possibly going on another long trip this year, scouring places like India, South Africa, and South America.
You can say that these “accomplishments” are atypical of an average person, much less a girl from Singapore.
I’m frequently interviewed in the media, occasionally TV.
(I’m quoted in this month’s issue of Her World Singapore by the way. ) Not too long ago, I went on a world trip for seven months without any companion or itinerary, basically creating my agenda on the fly.
Another reason could be my talking speed, which is faster than the average person. I had always thought that the solution to my guy-intimidation problems was to shirk my character, dumb myself down, and/or work on my appeal as a woman…The further I “climbed”, the harder it seemed for me to find a guy who could match my achievements.
