I was approached by a close female colleague of mine for a loan recently and it caught me by surprise as she was one of the few people whom I know that are financially quite stable.
I then asked her the reason as to why she wanted to take a loan from me and she gave me a reason which I do not know whether to pity her or laugh at her.
Face a lot of rejection because of her ‘nei nei pok’
She shared with me that it all started from her teen years where she was often ridiculed by her peers and classmates for having a very small to ‘non existent’ chest.
She was often rejected by guys due to that very particular reason as they would say that she has no ‘appeal’ because of her size.
I tried consoling her by telling her that her size is alright and there are many women with smaller sizes as compared to her and she told me that it was because a few years back took a loan to up her size to a B because she had enough of facing all these rejection.
She added that she was already used to having a small chest and did not want to face unnecessary back pain which is why she only did up to a B.
Recently met boyfriend but he wants more from her
She also shared that her current boyfriend was not satisfied with her size as most of his exes were C and above and he had not tried a Double D before.
Knowing that it is rare to find a Double D in Singapore, he asked her to consider ‘upsizing’ to Double D which would in turn spice up their ‘couple life’.
Wanting to keep her boyfriend happy and not wanting to be rejected anymore, she agreed to his request.
However, as fees for surgery are on the rise as well, she have no choice but to take a loan to do it.
She also told me that she had no choice but to approach me for a loan because I am the only one that she can speak to about the real issue she is facing.
She tried asking others for a loan before but when asked for the reason, she was not comfortable to tell them the reasons for the loan.
Should I loan her the money?
