I’m an early 30s professional who has been in Taipei about 2 years. Haven’t really dated much during this time, and playing the field really isn’t my thing.
Basically, I came here on a pretty nice expat package, which was less than my US salary, but not by much. To ballpark it, I get paid somewhere between 5M to 10M NTD a year.
Anyway, I’ve been seeing this girl for the last 2-3 months, and she would take sometimes several days to a week to respond to messages. We would go on a date every couple weeks. Then, about 2 weeks ago I let my income slip. She’s a normal Taiwanese girl, probably making 40-50k a month. Fuck.
Now she’s pretty much responding to me every day, and is showing some serious interest here. She was interested before, but this just tipped the scales in a way that I didn’t really want.
Did I irrevocably mess this up? Any way to make sure she’s not just gold digging? I messed up. I know it. But I do like this girl for who she is, and I’d really like the feeling to be mutual.
