EXASPERATION, I has it

*sigh*
A friend tries to set me up with his friend and the feedback is that I am apparently too strong/ opinionated/ something along those lines.

Me? Really?
O_o

And all this time I thought that I was a nice girl, but with a point of view on certain matters.
(WHAT'S WRONG WITH HAVING A POINT OF VIEW?)

And this is not first time!
(Well, in another context actually: I knew I would be rejected for a job because the interviewer said at the end, "Wah. You very opinionated, horr" in a really "tsk tsk" tone of voice....)

Am so sick of this nonsense.

Why is that most (Asian) guys I meet cannot accept a woman who has an opinion? This is really upsetting - because it's not like I'm the "in your face"/ brash/ feminist/ grrl power type anyway... (I don't think so anyway).

Can it be that when they say they value intelligence/ personality/ sense of humour in a woman, what they really mean is HOT BODY?
>_<

  1. Hey, don't worry about it.

    I'm sure someday you'll find a great guy that appreciates those qualities in you.

    And besides, a woman who has intelligence and a sense of humour/personality is much more interesting than one who has neither.
