The Types of Malaysian Boyfriends Available

I know many girls in the 23 to 30 years old marrying-age category. Living away from home in the city, working a first job and/or studying part time. All of them are looking for that special guy to be their boyfriend, the Mr. Right, so to speak. But the problem is that there are too many guys out there, some are great; some are not. As a guide to all my girl pals, here’s a list what you’ll probably find out there…:

(Disclaimer: Before i get any spam from girls who say their boyfriends are like Brad Pitt and Bill Gates rolled into one, these are SOME of the types available, NOT ALL. OK?)

Racer Boy – Works as a middle-level executive in some big corporation (that affords a lot of personal free time) but the ONE DEFINING character – in love with his modified car. Usually drives a Japanese model like Honda City or Nissan Skyline. Spends about a thousand ringgit a month on strut bars, mufflers, body kits, turbo engine, cold air intake, blinking colourful lights all over the car, etc. (Keng will know what I’m talking about…)

  • Pros – you get to ride a car that’s the envy of hundreds of mat motors and other wannabe mat racers.
  • Cons – boyfriend spends more time and money on his ride than on you.

Corporate Climber – Works in a multi-nat corp or a big 5 accounting firm. Works until 10pm every night because ‘boss is demanding’, ‘that’s the work culture’ or ‘there’s tons of work’. Works even on Saturdays or Sundays. Always says he’s going to spend some time with you but always stands you up for some deadline.

  • Pros – If you pick the right one, you could be sitting on a gold mine. Could be the next partner of KPMG or VP of Accenture. If it happens you will be on easy street…
  • Cons – You spend a lot of time waiting for him to pick you up. He says he’ll come at 8, now it’s almost 9.30pm… He also forgot your last birthday.

The Happy-go-lucky Dude - Now this is a fun guy to be with. Loves parties, hanging out with his friends at the mamak, brings you out shopping all the time, loves video games, probably watches lots of movies and English football. In short can really show you a good time if you’re dating him.

  • Pros- Fun guy to date. All your friends love him. Even your mother thinks he’s a hottie.
  • Cons- No ambition. 5 years later he’s working at the same job with the same pay. And a smaller car.

The Pretty Boy – Dresses in immaculate clothes, neatly pressed and matching colours. Goes for facials and manicures. Hair is always well-groomed, uses more beauty products than most girls. Usually a neat-freak too, every thing in his room is arranged in alphabetical order and color coded. Loves Oprah. Very popular with the girls in his office…

  • Pros- Be the envy of all your friends. His beauty tips are better than those in Cosmopolitan. Plus he can do facial and your hair for you- free.
  • Cons – He’s prettier than you. Other guys think he’s gay.

The Silent Type – The strong silent type. Normal in every way, good job, good family, nice car, but doesn’t say much.

  • Pros – Good listener, doesn’t bore you with his problems, dependable and your parents love him.
  • Cons – Two years into a relationship you find out all about his anal retentive issues (must always brush his teeth 4 times a day, etc) and psychological problems with over-domineering mother and bullying father, allergic to flowers and every kind of seafood, horrible fear of clowns and commitment…

(The blogger INSISTS he’s not any type of boyfriend/husband listed above, regardless what his wife says…)

  • Hey Simon! Thanks for the little note there on my blog.

    Anyway, I am definitely a mix between a Corporate Climber and The Happy-go-lucky Dude, so you can call me the Corporate Happy Go Lucky Climber .. haha

  • hahaha... too few category i think... how bout those dudes with unlim $$$ from their datuk father's account? :P

    By Blogger Ivan, at 5/16/2005 12:11:00 pm  

  • LOL. Simon, I dated the silent type a while back and I must say that you are on the dot about the domineering mother, bullying father, flowers and even the fear of clowns. Although my ex fears balloons. you know my ex??? Hm.

  • oh crap, i'm exactly like the silent type, can't believe you can get the details so darn accurate.

    By Blogger Livingmonolith, at 5/16/2005 04:01:00 pm  

  • inevitable - welcome back!

    ivan - whoa, those type very scary one...

    the scarfer - perhaps you could give a more detailed description of your ex... :P

    livingmonolith - the worst part is that its only the tip of the iceberg... :)

  • eheheh.. how come my name appears in this article? Anyway, so happen simon & i share the same unmodified vehicle :P

    #1 - The problem with dating them will be ppl look at their cars first to find out how hot/great you are, kind of frustrating rite?

    #2 - "Save the Best for Last"

    #3 - "Have FUN, eat BUN" (sorry, no offense, aren't they great?)

    #4 - You have to be #2 to keep them.. IMO.

    #5 - Nothing is perfect... but better choose #6, #7, so on and so forth..

  • keng - yours also un-mod ah? sama gang!!

  • Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.

  • I'm puzzled with lots of exercises. I was afraid I could not do the right time despite my hard work. I need a support person.
