So, I’ve been living in Taiwan for a while, and have been dating a Taiwanese girl for a few months. I really like her, and I think we have a genuine connection, but there’s a few things that are a real thorn in my side. I pay for everything when we go out, and so far I’ve always been the one travelling to see her. It’s just money but, I feel she doesn’t really appreciate all I do for her. I rarely hear words of praise or positivity out of her mouth, and I feel like I’m just expected to treat her like a princess all the time. Is this just cultural? Is it worth trying to broach the subject?
I really like her, but I don’t want to be in a totally one-way relationship. Any advice from people who have been through this here?
