So I was on Tinder talking to this particular guy for a few days. Apparently he is serving the army now and is very unhappy with his situation. You can read the some of the conversation below. I feel that nowadays, too many guys are also in the same position as him and I just want to let you all know that how grateful I am. Weird? No, I’m not grateful towards your suffering. I am really grateful towards all the guys that had been, is currently or will be serving Singapore in the future. It’s because of you guys, I feel safe walking around Singapore in wee hours or generally at any part of the day.
I do know as a girl speaking out to the subject of NS, it’s really a small talk and very insignificant to you guys. Well maybe it’s just your masculine way of thinking that girls will never understand the toughness of NS and how bad it is to waste 2 years of your life etc. I am not going to argue with that because I do understand as a guy in Singapore, especially at your rebellious age, it is bad enough to be forced to do something you don’t want to by law. You don’t need another feminist girl on your side saying “OHH GIRLS HAVE PERIOD EVERY MONTH” or “OHHH GIRLS HAVE TO UNDERGO THE PAIN OF GIVING BIRTH” or whatsoever.
What I am trying to say is that, bring a little positivity in your life and hey, it’s going to be all over soon. In actual fact, Im kinda envious of the close bonds the NS men have with one another (even if they do not know each other but because they understand). It’s a beautiful day and it’s almost Christmas, I wish everyone is having the time of their life and as the year is coming to and end, I do hope the negativity gets to end too. Cheers!
