my relationship with my SO is getting more and more serious recently. after we talked, i started to wonder if there is a future with him.
he always says that we Taiwanese work way too hard to pursue better things such as houses, cars, watches…he also thinks that people marry for money here. I read another D&R thread which is about one’s Taiwanese SO talking about fanancial security all the time…what’s wrong with it? the gavernment here doesn’t take care of poor people. the local news reports some people who are in need of help. there are a lot of them actually…
don’t get me wrong…I am not that kind of girl who goes shopping every weekend or live with family until 30. actually I moved out when I was very young(16). I meant I won’t marry or see someone for money. actually I have a very good income. if I don’t spend much money, it’s because I don’t think I need to. but when he told me that he likes to be poor(more than once), that really made me worry. I can’t even picture myself in the life he describes.
sometimes I think he does things because he wants to prove something to me. he always says that it’s the way he is. asked me to accept who he is…(my parents in the future) I feel annoyed when we talk about that. how can a foreigner wishes to have a chinese SO without educating himself(herself) I wonder if he will ever adapt the standard of the society. yesterday I thought and thought. I even thought maybe we shouldn’t have started :help:
