A milestone for a Taiwanese boy

I would just like to announce that almost 3 months after our first meeting and his employee-discount every time I walk into his store and his knowing my drink by heart, my Starbucks barista has finally asked for my Facebook.

:unamused: :roflmao:

Ay-yooooooo It was like watching a very slow-paced soap opera :popcorn:
I guess it is no exaggeration, Taiwanese bois really are incredibly shy!

Cute! Fair play to him!

Gongxi. Wait another three months and he may even send you a friend request lah. At this rate, you will be dating properly by the time you are 50, married by the age of 70 and having kids before you hit 90 :slight_smile:

In another six months when he asks you out, are you interested are just going to stomp on the shy boy for the lulz?

Progress indeed ! :sunglasses:

Ai-yo. The reason he took so long is because you haven’t been punching him really hard at every opportunity and complaining about how he’s so annoying in the squeakiest hello-kitty voice you can muster. This is the standard method for letting a guy know you like him.

Thats Bismarck for you. :smiley:

Or you could just have given him your fone number. Gotta remember TW girls are not only outgoing now but aggressive. They chase guys on the wan .

You’ve finally figured out why so many expats stay here. :thumbsup:

Look on his Facebook for something that he’s interested in, and organize a few friends (preferably another guy and a girl - not too many) to go out to something that he’d seem to like. Then invite him along next time you go to Starbuck’s (he can practice his English! Don’t mention that you already know that he likes that sort of thing…). Now you have each other’s phone numbers.

Yeah, Taiwanese ‘group date’ for the first few times @.@;; It ‘takes off the pressure’ or something.

p.s. If I were you I would also casually mention that you hardly ever have your phone on or something, just in case he’s going to start calling you every 10 minutes because ‘that’s what you’re supposed to do’ (yes, there are men that think that here. LOTS of them. It’s such an instant turn-off @.@; But it is learned behavior that can be unlearned if you catch it early enough, i.e. before he does it. Maybe a conversation about this creep who called you all the time would be a better, more direct hint).

I don’t have a phone.

And…
I thought he didnt have a girlfriend. I specifically remember a brief convo about this, but his Facbook says “in a relationship” but no name.

He probably means YOU are his girlfriend. You have to marry him now he has you on facebook. :smiley: That’s internet LAW!

I totally want to date a Starbucks barista during the holiday season. I frickin’ love their Christmas coffees!

if it says “in a relationship”, does it also say “interested in” as well? If that isn’t mentioned, could be he’s gay.

Perhaps if he marries you he will have a mill stone around his neck? :smiley:

Look through his photos and see if there’s any where he’s being really close with someone. Lots of photos of faces squished together or hugs.

Taiwanese boys :serenade: are actually only ever after one thing :howyoudoin: .

Which is practicing their English.

Try not to take it personally.

Practicing their English? It always somehow ends up being done in Chinese… or Taiwanese…

Nope, they are looking for a strong independent woman. A woman who respects equality and isn’t afraid to be like Hillary Clinton and carrry her man.

^^^^ Need a girl to do this to me in TW. Walk about 10 feet and I’m impressed.
