Meet Simon the happy bachelor who doesn’t feel the need to fall in love.
Simon, which answer best describes your current love situation? a.) Single and happy b). Single and lonely c.) Single and definitely not lonely or d.) In a committed relationship.
C. Single and most definitely not lonely. I didn’t even have to think about that one!
Would you say you’re a bona fide bachelor?
Yes I would. I’m too independent, too selfish and way too impatient to be in a relationship.
Would you say those are unattractive traits to have?
Not at all. I know what I am and that’s the way I like it. At least this way women know what they’re getting from the get go and they don’t expect anything from me.
Fair enough, so what do you do for work in Jakarta?
I’m country manager for a security/risk company.
Is that as exciting as it sounds?
Not really, but it affords me a very good lifestyle which is what matters.
What do you love most about being single?
The best thing about being single is that I can do what I want, when I want to do it. Why would I have it any other way? The idea of having your Mrs call you up while you’re in the pub with your mates telling you to come home and wash the dishes is not one I had in mind.
What’s the most fun a single guy can have in Jakarta on a Saturday night?
I’d say start with a massage, then have dinner at Loewy in Kuningan, then mayhem at Red Square and see where that takes you.
What type of a woman would it take to make you want to settle down?
A super hot, confident and sexy woman with a willing twin sister who would both be generously endowed in the chest department.
What’s your craziest memory from living in Jakarta?
Alexis Hotel – if you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’d say keep it that way and if you do know, well maybe you and I aren’t so different after all.
No comment. What’s the most outlandish thing you’ve ever done to impress a lady?
Actually I’ve never found the need to impress a lady in Jakarta – they’re always up for a good time.
Can you give me 3 adjectives that best describe Indonesian women?
Confident, sexy and crazy!
