Hi, I have been reading Forumosa for a few months since I met a Taiwanese girl. I find this forum very interesting and I hope to find some more answers by posting my first topic.
I met this nice Taiwanese girl in Australia and after seeing each others a few days per month because of the distance, we are now finally going to live together. Though, there are a couple of things that concern me.
The first is that often she doesn’t answer my calls and sometimes she takes a few days to call me back. She explained that she love me and that she really wants to live with me but that with her previous boyfriends she was used to talk on the phone only once per week. I’m european and this behaviour freaks me out. I wonder if it is normal in Taiwan.
The other issue is that she has a scar on her wrist, I tried to ask her what happened (I mean, it is pretty clear what happened but I would like to know why she did it) but she doesn’t want to talk about it so I decided to wait for a while. How would you deal with that? It is the first time I met a person that tried to commit suicide and I’m worried it may happen again in the future.
Sorry to bother you with these questions but I really care about this girl and I have never been with a person coming from such a different cultural background. I hope you can make my ideas a bit more clear. Thank you
