Normal for Singaporean man to stay with single parent throughout whole life?
Currently living in a 1 bedroom rented apartment with a older brother, and our mother who is the sole breadwinner for the pass few years of our lives until now we got stable job.
My older brother is applying BTO to move with GF alr, and I am single and planning to start saving money for a 3-4 room resale HDB and putting my mother as a essential occupier, giving her a bigger home to relax and retire in.
If I were to move out also, she would be alone and I don’t really like the idea of that. Hence..
Is it a norm for guys to forever live with their parents? And do girls find it like a “turn off” if they find out the guy first property is a HDB that he is living with his mom in?
- your question shouldn’t be “is it normal?”
your question should be “what are my values in life and does staying with my mom goes against this value?”
Stick by your values, and good people will recognize and respect you for it.
Sure, the reality is that it will be a turn off for many girls, but a great lady will understand and even love you more for this, compared to those who just want attention and be pampered and loved.
- not a turn off
but if really cant get along w ur mom, you hv to choose 1 eh
pls be transparent abt your situation from the start, dont need to lie abt this, nothing shameful, if the girl cant accept then that’s it
