Sex imbalance in Asia will make it harder for men to find a woman

Better up your game or turn gay. Asia expected to be filled with hordes of men as more men are born then women (anyone say CHINA?).

Better [strike]up your game or turn gay[/strike] have money and not be a complete drunken douche. Guys with money in China will not only get laid, they will indulge in both quality and quantity. I imagine this applies elsewhere too. The problem you’re talking about is just another reason why being poor will only get shittier as the world moves forward

Better secure a high-quality partner as soon ad possible, guys.

I think this is an issue for the men with zero social skills and to a lesser extent less wealth. Women are absolutely looking for money but there is a large group of Asian men that never socialize with women. They aren’t getting turned down because they are poor but rather because they aren’t putting themselves into a position to get turned down.

Indeed but Fine girls are hard to find. Ones you can actually live with, and not eat or be eaten (well ahh, maybe THAT isnt so bad tho).

Imagine going all the way through your twenties like that? I don’t know how they do it.

I assume they have ADSL in China…

I read that the sex toy industry - which caters mostly for men - is growing at about 30 percent a year. It’s ‘stimulating’ the economy. Apparently, some of the most popular toys are sex dolls that are Japanese porn star lookalikes. If this is some kind of revenge for the Nanking Massacre I can’t imagine the Japanese minding.

This is pure gold:

[quote]Her airlift idea reminded me of the Virgin Import Agency, which got into the news in Shanghai a couple of years ago.

This firm’s agent arrived in China with a cargo of Vietnamese women whom he married off (after collecting large fees) to surplus men.

Two days later, the women, the agent and all the money vanished. Turned out they were visiting clusters of surplus men and pulling this scam repeatedly.

The newspapers predicted riots. But the guys just went home, realizing that they’d tried the marriage thing, got over it, and were now free to spend the rest of their lives using their computer mice to interact with the luscious Kasumi from Dead or Alive Xtreme[/quote]

You know, I came here with the idea of getting myself a nice, hard working, Asian guy. Thought with the gender imbalance it would be picking low lying mangoes. How wrong was I! How the heck do you compete with Lara Croft or worse, 48 kg/1.75m Minnie Mouse voiced models?

I think the real debate is, is it worse to be a Leftover Woman or a Surplus Man? Also, when can we have a movie a la “Alien VS Predator” with these two categories facing off?

@icon

there is an ancient chinese saying : a monk can not find fame within his own monastery, he must travel far to achieve fame

so you must travel far or you will remain a nun.

or you must search on the internet (like i did)

I thought “nice guy” was perceived as derogatory. I’d skip the hard-working bit too - he’ll be more interested in what the boss needs than what you need.

As for the gender imbalance, my impression is that the vast majority of people out-and-about in Taipei are young women. But maybe that’s just my selective attention. I notice they’re mostly wearing short shorts. Not really relevant, but just thought I’d mention it. :whistle:

You need to practice your squeak!

But yeah, like it or not, men (generally) are attracted to a certain shape, and Taiwanese women are pretty much … it. I guess it’s all Mr Darwin’s fault.

This is just not as simple as you make it sound. I’m shaped nothing at all like a Taiwanese woman and, before I married, I never had a shortage of Taiwanese guys who were interested.

Unfortunately, most of them either lived at home with their mothers, or had obscene oral hygiene, or just wanted to try an “exotic flavor,” or had longer fingernails than I did, or some other weirdness. One I kind of liked was too shy to ask me out but looked me up five years later and asked not for a date, but to move in with me! The are some odd goods available on the island. I can only imagine what the main land must be like.

And you have plenty guys around who’ve never seen a live naked woman and would likely freak right out if they did! And do you think that an almost thirty year old virgin, who’s only ideal has been a lifetime of porn, is gong to be any good at sex? I don’t.

Poor, misinformed Icon. The odds look good on paper, but really the goods are quite odd.

Not to say that there aren’t some great Taiwanese men, but they’re often spoken for by about Jr. High by some long suffering girl who will date him her entire life waiting for him to inherit his parent’s property, or to get rich, so he can ask her to marry him.

Sound like a fairy godmother :laughing:

Well, I didn’t say it was 100%. Just, like, the majority preference. “Majority” being people like me and tommy525. I guess that sounds a bit odd, does it? Anyway, everyone has a certain silhouette that floats their boat. Mine just happens to have wide hips, long legs, and at least something up top. 90% of Taiwanese women look like that. Yeah, I know, that’s shallow and dumb … but I can’t alter the way my neurons are wired.

If it’s any consolation, it’s not so easy for guys. Have you heard the expression 吃苦? Literally, it means “to eat bitter(ness)”, and in Chinese culture it’s considered a virtue to be able to do so. It’s subtly different to the western concept of fidelity in the face of adversity (or however you like to put it). As one girl told me, “the gods get upset if life is too happy, so you have to make them think it’s not so good”. In other words, if life doesn’t have enough 苦, she’ll whip some up pronto. My barbaric western reaction, I’m afraid, is “bugger that for a game of soldiers”. And if your gods are petulant children, bugger them too.

:roflmao:

Not exclusive to Chinese culture I guess, but yeah, pretty common here. It’s one of the things that upsets me about Taiwan. People go through their entire life “waiting” for happiness (ie., material wealth), and don’t bother improvising with what they’ve already got, or don’t realise that a couple can be a formidable financial team.

Wow… I found the reason why asian guys hate big, tall, outgoing westerners… they can’t find their women, and you guys keep dating/marrying them… Ho ho ho…

no worries plenty of taiwanese ladies to go around. No shortage (at least on Taiwan) . Scarce where I am.

90% of Taiwanese women have hips, long legs, and something up top?

Did I live in a different Taiwan? :eh:

haha i got the same thoughts. I think hes thinking Philippino women?

Cuz taiwanese girls have almost no hips , but they do have long and beautiful legs. They may or may not be well endowed upstairs. MOst of them are 32, you are lucky to get a 34 much less a 36 set of tits though.
