It is a pretty decent resume for any prospective girlfriend, but when it came to dating Singaporean women, Yeo thought his plump, 1.5m frame put him at a distinct disadvantage.
“I’ve heard the girls look for handsome guys and will start looking at you 360 degrees. I don’t want to be in that situation.” So he joined a growing band of higher-educated Singaporean men who go knocking on the doors of foreign bride agencies.
