Jessica Hsuan Unafraid of “Leftover Bachelorette” Tag; Not in Marriage Rush
As the subject of “left bachelorettes” has been a hot topic lately with TVB’s controversial show, Bride Wannabes <盛女愛作戰>, many are looking to the entertainment circle to identify who is the next eligible bachelorette. Currently starring in the popular TVB series, Tiger Cubs <飛虎>, Jessica Hsuan (宣萱) is quick to be identified as a real-life “old bachelorette.” Breaking up with her veterinarian boyfriend, Ruan Bester, last year and turning 42 years old next month, Jessica claims that she is taking her single status in stride and ready to embrace a new relationship anytime.
For someone who is known for her easygoing and outgoing personality, Jessica is surprisingly very low-key about her relationships, preferring to stay out of the limelight. Her relationship with Ruan, who is 4 years her junior, was well-received by the public given that he is a medical professional. The ex-couple shared a love for animals as well. Unfortunately, the relationship dissolved after 2 years with Jessica quoting the Chinese proverb, “3 feet of ice do not result in 1 day of cold weather,” implying that there were problems with the relationship early on. Regarding her breakup with Ruan, Jessica said, “Of course I was sad, but we’re both adults. If we didn’t get along, it’s better to end it now than later.”
Instead of dwelling over her breakup, Jessica chose to focus on her career and filmed Tiger Cubs, her last series with TVB before deciding not to renew a management contract with the company. Jessica said, “We still talk about working together, but I’m also interested in exploring other options. I want to be able to choose my scripts carefully, focusing on quality over quantity.” Jessica also pointed out that in the past half year alone, she declined the proposal to be cast in at least 5 TVB series, equating to an income loss of more than $100,000 HKD.
Even so, Jessica did not see it as a loss. In fact, she enjoys using her free time to focus on her fitness routine which gives her a healthy and glowing complexion, and not letting the “leftover bachelorette” term bother her. She said, “As long as I’m happy. To be honest, if I wanted to get married right now, I can. But I don’t feel like a person’s happiness is determined by whether or not she is married. If I wasn’t happy in a marriage, than I’d rather stay an ‘leftover bachelorette.’ I’m very certain of what I want, and that is true happiness.”
Jessica admitted that when she was in her thirties, she did feel the pressure to get married and have children. But as she gains more life experience, she realized that it is fine to be content and wait patiently until Mr. Right appears.
When asked what she is looking for in a partner, Jessica said, “Nothing in particular, as long as we have that chemistry. And he can’t be too good looking!”
