[quote=“golfmade”][quote=“j99l88e77”]It’s actually probably good to come with a wife/girlfriend, or vice versa, because you can help each other in the teaching area (like planning, especially if you’re a newbie) and you can save more money.
Then you can pay off your bills and/or buy a home back in your home country. If you buy a home, then you can rent it to a family/couple and pay off your mortage that way and always have a home to go back to if you do a year rent thingy.
With couples, rent is cheaper in Taiwan (and everywhere) and you can always watch out for each other with expenses.
Taiwan is actually a good place when you have a girlfriend because the Taiwanese girls want you more. Whether you act on it or not is your perogative, but, if you don’t, it’s good for the mental well being.
If you come here as a couple, you have more money to spend on things like a scooter. Scooters are very handy. You don’t really need one though. You can ride mountain bikes.
You can get yourselves a pretty sweet place to live, too.[/quote]
Yeah we’re going to have to work on new long term goals for the both of us (since up to now my long term goals were graduate from uni and move to Taiwan )
My fiancee does have a car (although the thought of trying to drive a scooter let alone a car in Tw scares the crap out of me). I think myself I’ll mostly be hoofing it or just getting her to give me a ride where I need, and hoping they can get the subway done [/quote]
Well, if you’re fiancee is Taiwanese and she has a car, what are you worried about? Why would you be worried about driving a car? Jesus fuckin’ H, you could open your open fucking school if you wanted. What are you doing going on here askin’ if you’ll be ok?
If you need help, look beside you.
