Whereas the traditional golden rule is treat others as you would want them to treat you, Kaneisha’s Golden Dating Rule is treat yourself like you want your partner to treat you. It’s easy to fall into the trap of pining after a boyfriend who doesn’t exist—or looking into the past and glorifying a guy that you ended it with just because there’s no man in your life now. A great way to unleash some of your love energy that may build up in the wake of singlehood is to befriend and romance yourself.

Things I wish a man would do for me and then I decided to do myself:

Flowers: My grandma, mom, and I are crazy about plants and flowers. We love to be surrounded by the energy and beauty of flora, and we take pride in cultivating plants. I used to nag guys I was dating to buy me flowers, and then I realized that I could pick up a stunning bouquet from Trader Joe’s for $9.99 and have fresh flowers whenever I wanted them. Surprisingly, I find some guys are much more willing to buy me “replenishment” flowers after he sees that I already buy them for myself. Rather than feeling like he’s a “whipped” sappy romantic, your partner feels like he’s doing something useful and manly—like taking out a 50-lb. bag of garbage—except now he’s bringing in two dozen roses.

Great Dates: I really wanted a man to whisk me around Boston, showing me all the touristy sights and hole-in-the-walls. Then, I just decided to explore the city myself with my girl friends. I go to a different fabulous brunch place almost every weekend with my girl friends when I’m in Boston. It’s emerging as a tradition, and one that I will surely treasure as my last year of graduate school looms. If I had waited until a guy came along, I would have missed out on all the delicious eateries and juicy gossip that always come with our Sunday morning brunches.

Sexual Fulfillment: Thanks to technology, heterosexual women can experience sexual fulfillment without men (while our lesbian sisters have been fine without men for ages). One does not have to be a “freak in the bed” to have a vibrator. Nor do you even have to go into one of the sex novelty shops. I was reluctant to buy a vibrator, so one of my girl friends bought one for me, put the batteries in it, and put it right on my bed in my dorm room as a birthday surprise. That tactic was surprisingly effective at getting me to use it, and I passed on the gift (not the vibrator) by buying one for a friend and doing the same thing. It’s also important to remember that vibrators are not just for single women. They are great for couples or even if you are in a relationship and just want some “me” time.

The list could go on forever. Other ways to be your own boyfriend would be buying yourself a GPS, painting your apartment, taking fun trips, and learning how to drive a manual transmission. I do not mean to imply that most women depend on men for these things all the time. However, there are certain things we women know that we need or want that we don’t have to wait another second to get. If you are a woman waiting around (either consciously or subconsciously) for a man to swoop in and fulfill your wishes, you are wasting golden opportunities to be the answer to your own problems.

Re: OCBC Saga

So there is a lot more to financial fraud than phishing through SMS. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

There's a whole market segment comprising of sophisticated software, some with machine learning capabilities, that can detect the various techniques employed by fraudsters.

If the focus is purely on protecting against one technique, then that is going to prove woefully inadequate.

Some banks are using some of these softwares, but in the end, it also depends on how well you can use it. Imagine the analogy of a highly trained commando with a firearm vs a typical every day civilian. Guess who's more effective.

Re: is haze season back again?

❰❰ Quote:Agree, although its also crazy to think about how the actions of a few can cause such a large scale effect. A couple burning plantations creates pollution issues for countries hundreds of miles away.

If only it were a "couple burning plantations". More than 2.4 million acres was burned last year. That's 9,700 square kilometers. By comparison, Singapore is 718 square kilometers.

Re: Ninja brand appliances

The Ninja blender is great. Very powerful, relatively easy to clean as well. Alternatively, perhaps you may want to have a look at the NutriBullet if your main intended usage is for smoothies.

Re: Mask thief

Most likely. I would have guessed that its just a selfish Singaporean being kiasu and wanting more for themselves, but this is way too much to have been the case. Either way, so awful, what makes her more deserving than any of the foreign workers?

Nowadays everything has gone up in price, not surprised to see the HDBs being as costly as they are. Especially those in prime locations/jumbo flats. Still a great value for money for what you get, but I guess the shock lies in the fact that government housing is supposed to affordable.

Each ballot cost 10 dollars last I know, imaging how many go ballot you can easily calculated how much Gov get.

Even at $10, they cant be earning too much.
