I seem to see this quite often in malls and other places in Taiwan. Typically a guy who looks like someone in his 50s or late 40s holding hands with a girl who is clearly early 20s.
Is it common culture in Taiwan to marry someone much younger after you become rich from your business? Or are these sugar babies? More than once when walking around in Shilin and Tianmu I heard an older guy walking with a younger female and making a proposition… usually pretty easy to spot, a younger girl dressed in skimpy clothing and an older guy. One was waving around a contract for some kind of arrangement near 士林站 and negotiating with a young girl. I overheard a bit and they were negotiating monthly rates. Is it pretty standard for rich businessmen in Taiwan to keep a younger mistress?
True I suppose, I was thinking along the lines of that old trope of “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it” associated with luxury car/jewelry sales people… the part about upfront pricing was sort of a joke …
…but in this case, you actually DO have to ask right? Given the lack of upfront pricing, you would need some sort of 3rd party pricing reference which I suppose would be hard to come by
…out of curiosity, I actually HAVE asked on occasion and in Taipei, sounds like the going rate is ~NTD100k/mo (anyone else out there with different info, please feel free to chirp in!). Of course, that would probably depend a lot on the girl’s background situation. And while I could afford that (not easily of course), it’s really not worth it to me. I COULD buy a Ferrari and pay for maintenance as well, but why the F would I do that?
