Crazy Rich Asians has made headlines for being a feelgood film that gives an insight into the rich life of Asians with a deeper message. But one of my friends didn’t enjoy it as much as me.
Spoiler alert. “Omg, why would you walk away from Nick Young?”
Which begs the question – is money or personality the most important aspect when women look for a boyfriend?
What women really want
So this social experiment had Asian Boss ask young and eligible ladies in Shanghai everything to do with money and how important it is in relationships.
They open up with the fact that men outnumber women 3 to 1. In response to that, one lady says it feels like there are more women, as “it feels like there are more single females around me”.
But despite this fact, all ladies interviewed said that it wasn’t easy to find a guy to date.
“What’s more important in a boyfriend – money or personality?”
4 out of 5 said personality trumped riches.
The lady who chose money as the most important attribute explained further.
“Money can’t do everything but without it, you can’t do anything”.
And one woman even made a good point that having a good personality will bring money in the long run.
“Ambition and drive are very important. If he has that, he won’t be very poor”.
But just how important is money?
Many of the women did agree that they would like a present for their birthdays.
But when asked how parents would react if their boyfriend had no money or a job, one woman said “They wouldn’t approve. How can I date a man who doesn’t have a job?”.
Men were asked if women had an expectation for men to earn higher salaries. One man said he felt like women do have expectations for men to earn higher. And the main reason is to feel secure.
Well, now you know what is a priority among these Asian women!
The idealist might say having a good personality is important, but money is essential for practical reasons too!
