Am I the only one who’s had the reverse experience in Taiwan? I came with the intention of settling down for a very long time and sleeping around seems neither sensible nor attractive. The more dates I go on the more depressed I get about my chances of settling down with a relatively normal woman out here. (And no, I haven’t been sampling the merchandise before purchase). The last date I went on she sat there reading a magazine while I was trying to get a conversation going. I know I’m boring sometimes but come on, that’s enough to give any guy a complex! In the end I just got up, left and haven’t bothered going on any more dates since.
I’ve also met some very savvy Taiwanese girls who have quite obviously set out to take me for as much of my money/time/whatever else as possible. I don’t know if desperate Taiwanese guys fall for that shit but bitches you be trippin’. As I write some girl who thinks she’s hot as a steam iron is on the phone trying to persuade me to do her gardening or something.
Unfortunately for us single guys with a long-term plan, the majority of girls in Taiwan are Taiwanese (d’oh) and a good chunk of those are, as you say, ‘girly girls’. I don’t have an Asian Fetish and I think I’d be more compatible in the long run with someone from a similar cultural background but ruling out anyone except Western girls seems to be a recipe for early purchase of curmudgeons’ slippers. Most of the single Western girls in Taiwan are either way outside my age range or planning to leave in x months or both. I know some amazing American/Taiwanese girls but they live in America. Whoops.
I do have some great Taiwanese female friends but they’re all married with kids, and I ain’t having kids with someone just to work out if they’ll suddenly turn out okay after the joys of motherhood.
All these foreign guys seem to be telling stories about all the sweet, sweet lovin’ they’re getting but my love/sex life has taken a definite turn for the worse in Taiwan. I just have no idea where Taiwanese girls are coming from half the time and end up walking around with an ‘eh?’ look on my face.
Sweet cuppin’ cakes jesus is there anyone normal out there?!
[quote=“tash”]But, now I really feel the need to say this: This story is getting so old, guys. What do you want to achieve by posting this way about Taiwanese girls? Are you really looking for advice or are you just ranting?
If you’re looking for advice then I don’t get it. It’s so simple: stop dating immature girls, stop dating girls/women you can’t communicate properly with, stop dating Taiwanese if you only want them to look Taiwanese but you really want them to behave Western.
If you’re just ranting, then please refrain from generalizing, it’s starting to sound less funny and more and more insulting. “Taiwanese girls acting like children during a breakup” for a title? This really pisses me off, you know.
And one more thing: I used to think that Western guys who date girly girls here (or anywhere) are doing it because that’s exactly what they want to be doing, but now I’m starting to think that there are a lot of really stupid guys out there.
Let me start a thread: “Western men acting like idiots before, during and after relationships with Taiwanese”
Cranky enough for you?[/quote]
