The Ways To Win A Woman's Heart

lim peh ka li kong

Old Beng me sometimes see a couple, the cha-bo very swee, sexy, good figure and very chio some more and then when me look at the man besides her, Wa-lau, not good looking leh, in fact ugly is a better word to describe him.

Sometimes, it really makes me wonder why some men can have pretty women as wife?

Before I got married, I always wondered how then can a man attract a woman, in other words, what factors and characteristics must a man have in order to be able to attract a woman?

In my shallow opinion, I could only think of the following points:-

  1. Handsome Face
  2. Rich
  3. Muscular Body
  4. Able to Sweet Talk
  5. A good Cook
  6. Musical Talent - Able to play guitar, piano, violin etc
  7. Able to compose songs
  8. Big Expensive Car
  9. Humorous
  10. Smart
  11. Caring

Hmmn, let me see when I was young, how many of the above points do I have:-

1. Handsome Face : Me no got handsome face, Hum-sup face can or not? FAIL

2. Rich : Young time where got money? Always money not enough, in fact gonna give tuition to earn some pocket money. FAIL

3. Muscular Body : Only got one big round muscle which is the cluster from 6-pack but oei don't play play hor, not easy to maintain. FAIL

4. Sweet Talk : Old Beng me start my conversation with "lim peh ka li kong" and end with "lim peh kong wan liao", consider sweet bo? FAIL

5. Good Cook : Can only cook instant noodle some more not nice one. FAIL

6. Musical Talent : Zero knowledge on musical instruments. Play instrument? Play marble and catch spiders clever la. FAIL

7. Compose songs : Write compositions also got problem liao, how to compose songs? FAIL

8. Big Expensive Car : Young time where got money to buy car, big bus can or not? FAIL

9. Humorous : Self-proclaimed that I very humorous one and always try to tell joke but always sure kena back-fire and became the joker where the joke was on me (Just like Bee Gees song) FAIL

10. Smart : Don't think so, average IQ only.

11. Caring : Hmmn maybe I was caring towards my cha-bo-lang, must ask her later.

So, looking at all 11 points, think Old Beng me maybe only got 1. Sigh!!!

But I think in a relationship, it is the chemistry that counts and nothing else la.

    yes i also always wonder why beautiful women end up with plain looking men. I myself am an example ;p not that my wife is drop-dead gorgeous and i very ugly. It's just that she is better looking than me ;p

    It could be money, it could be chemistry. Then there is 情人眼里出西施, we may think the guy is ugly but maybe the girl thinks he's handsome? We'd never know. Beauty is a subjective thing. What's beautiful for one person may not necessarily be beautiful for another. My wife and i often disagreed on who's beautiful and who's not. Our standards differ ;p

    Seems like you and I are the same leh, but me worse because people often commented me and my cha-bo-lang as 鲜花牛粪.

    hahahaha.... interesting... but i think the above u mention most doesn't apply to me...

    1) handsome face - no need handsome.. as long as i feel comfortable can le.. people will grow old...
    2) rich - i'm not money minded person
    3) Muscular body - dun like muscular body as long as fit not too flabby can le... i like guys who exercise regularly they have nice body... but not muscular..
    4) able to sweet talk - nice to listen but think it sounds more treatening...
    5) good cook - no need.. i can do the cooking...
    6) musical talent n able to compose - i prefer guys who can dance... can dance with me... very attractive...
    7) big n expensive car - have transport is bonus n no need big n ex... but sometimes want him to take public transport with me... feels good to have my special one sitting beside me on bus.
    8) humorous - yes... humorous guys attract me too...
    9) smart - not too smart or else very tired most of the time guessing wat he trying to do...
    10) caring - definately.. but if that guy love me sure care for me mah...

    where to find such guy huh? kekeke...

    Ha ha you are right, where got such perfect man around? Anyway it's just my opinion on the points a man should have in order to be able to attract a woman.

    You can reject if he is not up to your standard la, I believe only a handsome man can match your pretty face. You will get a good one so long as you slow slow wait.

    4) able to sweet talk - FAIL x 10 cos i always used F word
    5) good cook - yeah i can cook quite well, friends who tried my cooking said so.
    6) Musical talent n able to compose - i play the piano and violin and yes i had composed over 50 songs but ony for my own private enjoyment

    8) humorous - dont think so.
    9) smart - should be with good results in exam.

    Why beautiful women end up with plain looking men? This, the experienced Singablogger, knows very well: because some women specially go for such men! Haha! Serious!

    If I know a woman well enough, often, curiosity gets the better of me and i will ask her tactfully: "eh, you are so pretty. You can have any guy you want. What makes you choose so and so, of all men"? After all the "because he is sincere la..." blah blah blah, when it comes to the look dept, the ans always is:

    "my bf is not only not good-looking, but I think a bit ugly leh. That's exactly what I like! Good! Then I no need to worry about him flirting with another woman, or another woman wanting to snatch him away"!!!!

    And believe me, the more beautiful the girl, the more she will have such thinking , because being very beautiful, she would have lots of experiences with men, some of whom are hamsome playboys and married men etc. From these experiences, she will know first hand the insecurity of being with a hamsome men who may flirt and be flirted to, successfully easiliy. Eventually, when she settles down, she will pick the plainest and most sincere man who may look and behave even a bit kuku, among the group, and kick off the hamsome sweet-talking ones.

    Of course, not all women think like that. Some, go for the wrong criteria all the time, never having learnt from mistake! That type prefers good-looking bad man, but I will not comment on this issue here because that's for another blog at another time! hahahaha!

    Think you got more than half of what I posted, well done.

    lau hero
    Yes I agreed with you, we must learn to be contended.

    Xishi and Hiao Aunty
    So sincerity is a MUST point, noted.

    Kam siah for coming into my blog again, yeah guess we are in the same boat, so roll on bro.

    Your detailed comment really broaden my mind, so now I know why my cha-bo-lang chose me : for security reason so that no other girl girl will be interested in me.

    Think girl at certain age stage will probably look for different points a guy has.

    18 : Handsome or not
    28 : Rich or not
    38 : Career stability and security
    48 : So long it's a man.

    (pai seh to all the girl girl reading, just a stupid joke I've heard, no offence)

    Your are very good in writing, both English and Chinese, thinking of writing your own blog?

  • At Wednesday, November 30, 2005 10:40:00 AM , Blogger dandan...™ said...

    I guess this is the different between men and women..
    women go for the heart..while men go for the looks..

    A sincere caring good ugly man can touch a woman's heart easily..
    while a sincere caring good ugly woman can only wait for a man who don't go for looks to love appreciate her..
    Its not easy for a woman to be nice to be love as guys are blinded by beautiful stuffs around..

    Once again, this doesn't apply to all..

    The problem with a plain-looking guy having a beautiful wife is the risk of her giving him a green cap to wear ;p

  • At Wednesday, November 30, 2005 12:03:00 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

    I don't usually involve myself in debate but after reading all your comments I must agree there are some valid points brought up by some of you.

    Singablogger said it quite right. Quote - "Eventually, when she settles down, she will pick the plainest and most sincere man who may look and behave even a bit kuku" - Unquote.

    I guess the keyword is "Eventually", which not only applies to women but men too. The initial attraction is always guided by looks or at least he or she must be 顺眼. This is entirely a self perception, which cannot help but will always be blinded by subjectivity.

    It is till when all the love excitement dwindles will we then look into inner elements such as sincerity, commitment, etc....

    At the end of the day, it is the feelings of being loved, being cared for, that matter most.

  • At Wednesday, November 30, 2005 12:55:00 PM , Blogger Old Beng said...

    Yes I think I agree with you, women go for the heart and men go for the look.

    Don't think too much. Giving our wife the best of everything and make her feel like 恋爱ing everyday with our full shower of love will make them love us more and more. The only cap will be the one we bought from 7-11 :p

    Well said.

    Good points. Those pointers will generally work for most gals. Girls will always be girls. Yes, I agree sincerity is also important.

    I like your pointers. Good.

    IMHO, sincerity and character are the most important factors to consider.

    If a person is a flirt, and is adept at it, no matter how he/she looks like, handsome/pretty or otherwise, he/she will still flirt and/or fool around.

    if the person has a strong character, outward looks becomes secondary. The strength of a person's character is important.

    Sincerity builds trust. And trust is the essence of enduring and fulfilling relationships. When trust is built between men and women of strong character, there is nothing (temptations or otherwise) they cannot overcome.

    Hust my 2 cents' worth.

    After rereading this blog entry, my focus zoomed in onto the part where you say "pretty ladies tend to get hitched to plain looking guys."

    I suddenly see a glimmer of hop for myself. =)

    Sorry. =p I can't help thinking like this. -.-"
