SINGAPORE: A NUS student in his final year of university took to social media saying that he was ashamed he had never dated anyone before.
“I envy people who couple up easily. I would like to think I’m decent looking and have an ok personality. I just never thought of dating until recent months,” he wrote in an anonymous post to popular confessions page NUSWhispers.
He added that most women around him have friend-zoned him long ago, and wanted to know how he could put himself out there for a start.
“I’m interested in knowing this girl from another course but I think she doesn’t even know that I exist. How do I make friends with her?” he asked netizens.
Here’s the advice they gave:
Earlier this year, a young woman who just graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) took to social media to share her poor experience on her first-ever date.
In an anonymous post to popular confessions page NUSWhispers, the woman wrote that she was evergreen or had no relationship or dating experience. She added that she “didn’t find love during my university days as I was focusing on my studies. I was never into the idea of using a dating app but my friends had always been encouraging me to”. She wrote that she found it intimidating to meet and talk to strangers.
At the insistence of her friends, she went on a dating app and matched with someone she saw potential in. After messaging for about a month, she mustered the courage to meet him in person. “He brought me to fast food restaurant on the first date and we went dutch. & He then ghosted me after a few weeks,” she wrote.
