The point was raised in another thread, and probably a million other times, that many white males come to Asian countries with an ‘anti-white-woman’ attitude. I have to agree with this but I have a sort of complicated question regarding this.
When I was 15 my first girlfriend, first kiss and everything was a blonde girl. I liked her a lot but we ended up not getting along. Then I dated a Sri Lankan girl, this gave me the knowledge that cultural differences can make a relationship more interesting sometimes than when you both share the same experiences. In college I was living with my Taiwanese gf, we broke up and I am now dating another Taiwanese girl. This all occurred in America but I am wondering how I would be received in Taiwan on the dating scene.
My interests developed in such a direction that I feel I don’t have much in common with the average white girl in my area. I don’t really like to drink and party and all that, which sometimes seems to be a requirement. My 3 ‘foreign’ gfs were more like me, whereas my blonde ex’s myspace is full of drunken party pics. I don’t think I am ‘anti-white-woman’ but I also feel I barely ever have much in common with them.
So I guess my question is: Will Taiwanese women IN Taiwan feel I am just another ‘sexpat’ trying to pick up on girls because I think its ‘easy,’ or will they, once hearing I dated Taiwanese in the states as well, change their opinion? Will they see that as a negative or a positive? Friends and family have asked me if my interest in Taiwan stems from my ex, but I really feel that, though she introduced me to Taiwan, my current interest in Taiwan is unrelated to her.
I hope I phrased this in an ‘answerable’ fashion, but just give me your thoughts and opinions on the issue, thanks!
