Most use dating to better understand what they are looking for in a partner, which can result in a lot of trial and error. Local YouTuber Qiu Wen (秋雯) has clearly learned from her dating experiences.
In the most recent video of “Your home is so cute (你的家真可爱)” by the Musang King Channel on YouTube, Qiu Wen spoke about her dating life and her views on the people around her.
The series “Your home is so cute (你的家真可爱)” allows internet celebrities to show off their houses while casually chatting with the hosts. Of course, the hosts took the opportunity to explore Qiu Wen’s thoughts as well as her home. The YouTuber has changed a lot since she started out; many say for the better. It’s not surprising as she has had an eventful half year.
Earlier this year, Qiu Wen and her then boyfriend of two years, YouTuber Lim Shangjin (林尚进) announced they were breaking up. The two supposedly separated on good terms and were able to retain their friendship. However, it does make one curious if she would date another social media influencer after that experience. Thankfully, host Bernard Hiew bit the bullet for the viewers. “Probably not,” the YouTuber said bluntly. “If you are from a different (line of work) you can learn something new from him. You can always learn from each other.”
The YouTuber happily declared herself single and stated that she is currently interested in focusing on her career. “(Romantic relationships) are a very small part (of life) for me,” she said. This surprised the hosts as they presumed she had put a lot of efforts into her relationship. The YouTuber clarified that they had often “looked sweet” together because they were usually living their lives separately. “Back then I was avoiding talking to him and dealing with the problem,” she explained. “(I thought) we could just live our lives separately and it would be enough.” As one of the hosts said, it was like she didn’t have a boyfriend, so having one or not made no difference.
The hosts also brought up how much Qiu Wen has changed and grown. She credited the change in herself to her new manager. According to her, the manager had a very different way of doing things which made them butt heads. However, after seeing that his methods had results, she’s now changed her mindset. “When I look at my old self, I really feel like I was so wrong back then,” she said. “Why did I talk like this? Why was I like this?”
Of course, her new mindset helped her view her world differently as well. The YouTuber admitted she used to think everyone was a good person until recent incidents. According to her, it was the first time she had met “a bad person”. When asked about it, she said, “It’s the incident that everybody knows.” The hosts were quick to clarify, however they were also careful not to drop any names. “Is it the one who recorded your voice without informing you and edited parts of it to present to the public?” one asked. Her silent nod was all the answer they needed. She admitted the incident has made her question human nature.
It has certainly been a tough time for the local YouTuber, yet, she seems to be doing fairly well. From her responses, dating may not be on the table anytime soon, and she certainly won’t be dating another internet celeb.
The video may not have showed off her house much, but it has shown how much she’s grown!
