Come on! I dont believe this. When I first got here I was warned that I should just give up on the idea of dating while I am here. I am an attractive American woman in her 30’s (but I look like I am in my 20’s-very annoying), and yes, single. I was told that the local men wont come near me cause they think that Western women are too squishy (aka, fat) and the foreigners are too mesmerized by the local women. Ok, so far this has been overwhelmingly true.
Here’s the thing. I didnt come here to find a man, so a year without a boyfriend is neither here nor there really. What I miss is cutie men to LOOK at. The foreign men are so sloppy looking that I want to walk over and tell them to get it together! And the local boys, well, the cute ones I do see are young enough to be my son! oops. not a good thing. Is there anyplace I can go in Taiwan just to even remind myself why I like being a single gal? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
