I’ve just arrived in Taipei a couple of days ago and would like to know how to get to know people. I’ll be here for a year and keen on having a Taiwanese BF. According to a Taiwanese granny (who just stepped next to me while having my lunch) said that I’m very pretty but everyone has their own likes and dislikes.
So where and how can I start dating in Taipei?
Thank you for your suggestions in advance.[/quote]
When a Taiwanese person tells you that you are pretty, don’t take it personally ! “You are pretty” or “Ni hen piaoliang” is best translated by. “You are a foreigner, I want to say anything to you just to start a “conversation”, you look different from us Taiwanese, are you a movie star, because you have the same skin colour and nose size as Angelina Jolie ?! Wow your hair is not black ! etc. etc.”[/quote]
Thank you. It helped. But why do they want to take my photo? I still find it weird.
