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?

And all this time I thought that I was a nice girl, but with a point of view on certain matters.

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?

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.

to Julian Si:

to anonymous Lyn:Hey! My dear, you are definately strong when it comes to work and activities but what's wrong with that, anyway? *hugs*
(I wish I had the guts to do half the things you've tried)

to Ciki Mei:I'll work on the hot body, while you help me look for someone worthy. Hopefully this double prong tactic will be more effective! Haha.. :)
(*hugs* Thanks babe... Sorry to be such a downer, just one of those times when I'm feeling a bit low)
