In a recent interview, Sammy Sum (沈震軒) shares his perspective on relationships and how he gets along with his girlfriend, actress Shirley Chan (陳欣妍).
Dating Shirley since last year, Sammy revealed that he is not a very exciting boyfriend and like most men, he is not keen on celebrating special occasions. He said, “I am always being told that I am boring! My girlfriend is the one that taught me how to enjoy celebrations and parties. I grew up and studied in Canada, so I would often spend my birthdays alone. I don’t really enjoy celebrating holidays or events. I like to be cooped up and be by myself. However, when you are with someone who really likes celebrating events, you will be doomed [for not celebrating]! I screwed up a lot of times!”
On whether the couple has plans for marriage, Sammy said, “I think it’s a matter of the right timing! I am a traditional person. If I feel that the time is right, then I will do it. I hope it happens soon though.”
Asked about his perspective in dating an older woman since he had starred in ViuTV drama Sorina Fok (好人好姐) alongside Prudence Liew (劉美君) which explores the stigma of such relationships, Sammy said he is open-minded, “Knowing my personality, if I really did like her, I don’t think there’s any problems with it. Of course, I will have to convince and gain acceptance from my family. As a man, I have to give a sense of security to my other half. If I really like her, I don’t see why not. After all, I am living for myself and not for other people.”
