I’ve been in a long distance relationship for over half a year with a Taiwanese girl. She’s visited me here in the US and we both decided we wish to marry, so I’m planning on flying to Taiwan in two months to speak to her dad about this. Now she’s working in Australia on a “work holiday” and we’ve had many challenges. But lately I found out she’s hanging out one-on-one with another Taiwanese guy who she insists is just a friend. I try to be trusting, but when I found out they went to the beach together and spent the day together, suspicion got the worst of me. My questioning flustered her and she accused me of not being able to trust her (which may be partially true). She claims they’re just friends, she’s not interested in him in that way and he’s not interested in her (supposedly–I doubt that highly). She’s very pretty for a Taiwanese girl and I don’t trust any guy hanging around her, helping her to move, lending her money and spending the day with her at the beach. Am I out of line? Are these sort of male-female platonic friendships normal in Taiwan, thus making this a cultural difference? It’s simply not okay with me but I feel that if I draw a line in the sand, she will bail on me. Your input is welcome, as I don’t know if she’s just being inconsiderate, silly or I’m the one that needs to chill out.
