1. Take them out on a date for a change

“Guys shouldn’t always be expected to plan and pay for everything! When girls take us out on spontaneous, fun dates just to show their love, it indicates initiative and care, two very important things I look for in a girl.”

(James, 24, Financial Consultant)

2. Show your appreciation

“I know women always say they want us to shower them with compliments, but they can’t neglect our feelings and self-esteem too! Even a simple gesture like noticing we’ve been working out or we got a haircut can go a long way.”
(Jun Hao, 22, Student)

3. Feed them

“Feed us guys! We’re perpetually hungry, and feeding us makes you seem like a good caregiver, which, I guess, fulfills one of our primal needs in finding a good life partner. After all, they do say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!”
(Ze Wei, 21, student)

4. Confidence

“One of the sexiest things a woman can have is confidence. Don’t cover yourself up because you feel like you’re unattractive! Whatever size you are, you should be able to wear whatever you like.”
(William, 20, NSF)

5. Make them feel special

“My ex-girlfriend treated me like the most important person in the world before we started dating. She would attentively listen to my stories, remember my birthday and go out of her way to make sure I felt cared about. I think that’s what made me fall in love with her then.”
(Benedict, 27, Executive)

6. Make an effort

“This means putting in effort to look presentable while we’re out together, remembering important dates in our relationship, and trying to make time for me as much as possible.”
(Dixon, 22, Student)

7. Be independent

“I think independence is sexy in a woman – I can’t stand those girls who are constantly helpless and in need of saving, but maybe that’s just me.”
(Sherman, 30, Accountant)

8. Be passionate about something

“It’s important that partners have their own space. I don’t want to be disturbed while gaming, so I would like that my future girlfriend has something she’s equally passionate about that she can be engaged in while I game. Besides that, though, passions make a person more interesting – it’s always amazing to see someone’s eyes light up when they are talking about what they like to do.”
(Aaron, 20, Student)

9. Be occasion-appropriate

“I like girls who can be silly and goof off with you in a casual setting, but be able to interact in a professional setting when the situation calls for it. Adaptability shows intelligence.”
(Xavier, 28, Paralegal)

It looks like Singaporean guys don’t have exceptionally high standards, but place a premium on showing concern and affection. While you should have gotten a better idea about what Singaporean guys are looking for in a partner, do note that everyone has different preferences, and what works on one may not necessarily work on another!
