Not sure if that is really realistic...

Quote
Two years ago, she attended events organised by dating agencies, but found it "draining and depressing" when she did not find a suitable match.

One criterion for her partner is that his salary should be similar to hers, that is, at least $9,000 a month, an amount she says is "realistic" for someone in his mid-to late-40s.

He should also be pleasant looking and have good values.

actually i can understand salary requirements especially if there is an intention to start a big family. its not cheap to raise kids in sg and trying to give them a headstart.

Looks like straits times can consider venturing into the matchmaking industry. Two articles with ppl who seemingly match each other.

fewer expectations, fewer disappointments!  ;)
The name ShuperStar is derived from the words Shoe (“Shu”) and Superstar, because we want everyone who wears our shoes to be the star attraction – a ShuperStar!

With that kind of income it is better that she doesn't get a partner actually or there will be fight on money eventually

i think it is realistic. financial security is important for women nowadays to maintain their lifestyle.

in "love", nobody is right or wrong about their own choices.

everyone wants something uniquely for themselves, thats completely reasonable even if their expectations are completely unreasonable  ::)

in my own opinion, i do not think 9k is really THAT high for someone supposed in their midlife. in fact it IS median (for someone who had been ploughing). but what i will look is a step further beyond the generalistic income quantum for those in their respective age range. that is too..1dimensional. i would review their entire assets portfolio. there is a HUGE world of difference between a 40 earning 9k a mth with 180k serviceable debt. and a 30 churning a mere 2k from 500k worth of assets.

When i say review. I mean INTERROGATE.
