Former actress Jacelyn Tay is more interested in her plants than dating, according to her Instagram post on Monday.
The 47-year-old local personality was married for eight years to businessman Brian Wong before they announced their divorce in 2018. They have an 11-year-old son, Zavier.
Tay wrote that her “beloved auntie from Switzerland” is in Singapore for a holiday and that they have not seen each other since the pandemic.
After she told her relative that she did not have a boyfriend since her divorce and she was “not interested in dating or meeting any man (am more interested in my plants), she said, ‘Sweetie, it is good to find a partner’”, Tay wrote.
She said in the post she is perfectly happy being single. “Frankly, with my son, a great mum, siblings, many BFFs plus my love – business and work as a health coach – I’m happy, well-balanced, peaceful now,” she wrote.
Tay said she would not settle for just a “companion”, unless there is a man whom she truly likes and respects, and who loves and accepts all of her – including her son and family.
“What do I want to do with that person whom I get as a partner? Take care of me? I don’t need that actually,” she said. “Sex? Sorry… Am way more spiritual than that.”
