Singaporeans aren’t exactly the poetic type, even if our hearts are in the right places. When it comes to romance, we might have a different approach, but nevertheless, all we want is something endearing to send to our loved ones.

You end up with a combination of local phrases with your typical romantic musings, with a dash of humour as well. When people say Singaporeans love their food, they weren’t kidding; our love has seeped into our pickup lines, so we won’t be having trouble in our love lives anytime soon. Here are some of our delectable selections of romantic phrases!
